PTI January Blog Hop - Pretty in pink!


This month, Papertrey has challenged us to use pink in our creations for the blog hop:
Now, I don't tend to use a lot of pink but I do have the supplies for pink creations so I went to town using fuschias, pinks and deeper reds ...
I used the Chevron Cover plate as a stencil and sponged a variety of Fresh ink colours onto some LCI woodgrain cardstock.  I then added a vellum layer for the name 'Salel' for a colleague's new baby with some glitter alpha stickers.
 I tied some silver twine to the top and added a baby charm on the inside (click for a larger image).

This nex card was a simple one with some Pink Paislee chipboard shapes that I sponged with pink ink (Brilliance pearlescent pink) and Fresh ink slate ink.  I added a sentiment from PTI's Lovely Layers with Versafine Onyx Black.
 The card base is Recollections metallic silver - pink and silver always look so good together! :)
I used my Envelope Punch Board to make a patterned paper envelope which you can see just peeking out from underneath the card.

My next card is a simple light gray and pink one with some texture and dimension:
I used the In Bloom impression plate on a piece of pink card stock and used the 'hello' die for a negative die cut.  I kept the little pieces from the 'e' and 'o' and popped up the pink panel using foam dots.  The card base is a light gray card stock from Staples.
I picked up some Kate Spade tape from Indigo and thought it would look good with the gray and pink combo.  I added it to the edges on the top and bottom before stamping an ombre effect using three colours.
 Here you can see the light pink a little bit better:
I kept it one layer so it would be easy to mail even though I usually like to add more layers or dimension ... I even stopped myself from adding sequins - what do you think, should I add some after the fact?

Okay, last card on this pink-athon ....
A very simple one with Fresh ink fuschia stamped Stitches and Swirls from PTI.  I added a vellum sentiment using Fresh slate ink with an Embroidered Blooms 'thanks so much'.
I added some baby pink pearlescent Stickles in the centre of some of the flowers for a little something extra.

Hope you had fun using pink on your creations today!

You went to town on this challenge! Your cards are all so pretty. My favorite is the first one with the chevrons on the woodgrain. So pretty with the glitter. I really like all of your cards!

Great cards, especially the stitches and swirls. The vellum adds a nice touch.
