Pretty Pink Posh June Release Blog Hop

Good morning, friends!  Welcome to Day 3 of the Pretty Pink Posh June Release Blog Hop!  All of these products are available to purchase, and you can click here to shop.  

Since Father's Day is almost here, I decided to make a set of Father's Day cards, but really these cards could be given any time of year to show our dads some love.  I mixed several old and new products here, so some things might look familiar.  

When I saw the City Buildings Dies, one of my first thoughts was a superhero nighttime skyline, so I decided to go with it.  I die cut the buildings, and then to speed the process up a bit, I layered rectangles of red, blue, or yellow behind the dies instead of inlaying the color pieces. 

I created the background using the previously released Starburst Stencil.  It was the perfect thing to draw the eye in, but also reminded of the searchlights they send out to superheroes. 

I used the older Dad Coordinating Dies and the Mini Polka Dots Stencil to add some tone-on-tone dots.  I also die cut them a second time in black, so they would have a shadow.  

I finished the cards by adding "you're my hero" from the Helper Vehicles Stamp Set.  
I had so much fun making this card that I decided to make a second version just changing the orientation of the card. 

This time I off-set the sentiment just a bit and added a few stars from the  Americana Mix Clay Confetti.
I hope these cards make you smile!  I'm really looking forward to delivering these. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  The fun has just begun, so make sure that you continue on with the hop.  All of the stops are listed below.  And make sure to leave a comment at each stop by 11:59 PST on 6/17/2024 to be entered in for a chance to win a $30 gift certificate to Pretty Pink Posh.  (There are 3 gift certificates up for grabs.  One winner will be chosen each day, and all winners will be announced on the Pretty Pink Posh Blog.)  Happy hopping, friends!
