Pretty Pink Posh | Clean and Simple Strip Inlay Cards |

Hello everyone,

Today’s cards are all about clean and simple card designs. I’m incorporating a strip of ink blended inlaid cardstock in the cards today for a bit of color and a few adorable images to complete these cards.

I die cut three panels of 110 lb. cardstock using a large stitched rectangle die and strips of Bristol smooth cardstock that I will use to ink blend some Distress Oxide inks.

Pretty Pink Posh Wild Roses stamp combined with Distress Oxides Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey inlaid strip on a clean and simple card design.

For the first card, I cut a vertical section out of the panel to create the space for a strip of cardstock to inlay. For this card, I combined Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey Distress Oxide inks and blended the inks on the Bristol smooth cardstock strip.

After coloring my images with Copic markers, I used the coordinating dies to die cut the images out. I arranged the flower images in the bottom left- hand corner and added the sentiment to complete this card.

Copic Color Combination

Flowers: RV04, RV02, RV00, RV0000, Y19, Y11, Y00
Leaves: G19, G17, YG07, YG05, YG03, YG01

The second card features the adorable little koala bears, which I colored with my Copic markers and used my ScanNCut to cut the image out.

The diagonal inlay strip for this card was created by ink blending Fossilized Amber, Carved Pumpkin and a little bit of Vintage Photo on the edges.

Love from Lizi products showcase

Hey everyone,

I am finally able to sit down and write my post for a few cards I made using the Love from Lizi products. Love from Lizi is an online store in the U.K that sells card kits, mega-packs, mini-packs and other crafting products. She carries the most amazing patterned paper products, in my opinion that I’ve seen.  A few weeks ago I purchased several items and was so excited to start creating with these goodies!

I mostly choose to focus on the beautiful patterned paper and added very little embellishments. And I mostly focused on birthday cards because I needed a birthday card for my mom.

Love from Lizi Card kits, mega-packs and mini-packs crafting products for handmade card.

For this card, I used two patterned papers from the January card kit I previously purchased. The bottom wood grain paper is adhered directly to the base of an A2 size card, while the beautiful rose patterned paper is accented with stitched scallop border die from Lawn Fawn and adhered to a piece of fun foam for some added dimension. To finish this card, I die cut the sentiment from an add-on die and a butterfly from the Vintage Blooms mega-pack using copper mirror cardstock.

For card two, I used a card base from my stash because I specifically wanted a pearlized look to the card. Using a piece of patterned paper from the Vintage Blooms mega-pack, I cut the bottom of the paper using a check mark die from MFT stitched scallop basic edge set. The bird stamp, also from the Vintage Blooms mega-pack was stamped directly onto the base of the card using VersaMark and embossed with gold embossing powder. Tip to self for future, stamping onto a card with a pearlized finish is tricky. Heat embossing is not much better. I went through a few card bases before I was happy with the end result. I stamped a sentiment from the Soft Floral mini-pack and embossed it in gold to match the bird. To finish the card, I used a heart wood chip veneer, embossed it in gold and attached it as if it’s hanging from the sentiment.

My intent was to give my mom one of these two cards for her birthday BUT as I was finishing she stood looking over my shoulder and wanted to know what I was going to do with those cards.

So moving onto card three, I created this background paper by stamping a faded text background using Encore ultimate metallic gold ink. I did a little ink blending using Distress Ink Oxides in Worn Lipstick to add a touch of subtle color. Using a sticker from March card kit add-on, I added some foam squares for dimension before adding it to my card. To complete the card, I added a small butterfly sticker from the same sticker set. With this card, I felt that less is more and didn’t want to take away from the subtleness by adding any more embellishments.

And since I was on a roll, I made one more card. This time I used the butterfly stamp from Vintage Blooms mega-pack to create a background for my card by stamping it several times onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock and using a charcoal embossing powder. I did some ink blending again using Distress Ink Oxides in Worn Lipstick. To finish the card, I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set in Soft Floral mini-pack onto a piece of black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder. I added a piece of foam tape to the back of the sentiment piece and adhered it to the card.

I wanted to mention that I was in no way sponsored to write this post or that I am not an affiliate of the shop but choose to showcase Love from Lizi products because I personally use them and I absolutely adore all of the products in her shop. More information can be found at lovefromlizi.com

I hope you enjoyed the cards I made, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
