Pretty Pink Posh May Release Blog Hop

 

Hello there!

Today the Pretty Pink Posh team is having a blog hop to showcase the recent product release!
I'm SO very excited to participate in my first hop on the team!
You should have arrived from .... blog but if not you can start at the Pretty Pink Posh blog and I will have a full list at the bottom of my post.




For my first creation I used the brand new Storybook 4 die. I'm just in love with the Storybook dies and think this is a great addition! I seriously fell in LOVE with the new rose gold sequins, they are seriously just the prettiest, so I wanted to focus my card around them for a sweet sending hugs shaker card.
I cut my white cardstock with Storybook 4 die, created my shaker element with acetate and I used fun foam for dimension and then filled with the rose gold sequins and used some wood grain pattern paper in the background. I ised the Birdie Friends stamp set for both my sentiment and my sweet little birdie. I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment on a strip of vellum and adhered on my shaker element. For my birdie, I stamped in frayed burlap distress ink on watercolor cardstock and colored in using Zig clean color markers and die cut out using the Birdie Friends coordinating dies.
To finish off this card I stamped the sprig twice from the Holiday Pals stamp set and cut them out using the coordinating dies.


For my second card, I again used the Birdie Friends stamp set and coordinating dies along with the brand new Stitched Essentials 1 die. I'm in love with these dies and can't wait to create some Birthday and Christmas tags with them to have on hand but today I wanted to use one of them on a card. I kept die cut as it came with the oval in the centre but it can be removed and used separately. I did some spotlight stamping here. I stamped my branch on both my card base and the tag and popped up the tag and the inner oval on some fun foam for dimension . I stamped and die cut some leaves to scatter around my branch. I stamped my little birdie and nest separately, colored my birdie with Copic markers and die cut out as well to adhere on top my branch. I adhered this on a green card base, added a strip of silver glitter paper and finished off by scattering the new and beautiful Wisteria Blossom mix.

I adore the new dies and sequins! I hope you enjoyed! Your next stop on the hop is the extremely talented Nina-Marie. There are 2 $25 dollar gift cards up for grabs for the Pretty Pink Posh store so be sure to leave comments along the way for your chance to win! Comments must be left by 11:59pm PDT on May 16/2016.

  2. Okay, those rose gold sequins are FANTASTIC! (I'm impressed you could make a shaker with them....I would seriously want to hoard them....) 😄 Love the soft palette you used on that first card as well. The second card is adorable. Purple and yellow is one of my favorite color combos. You've used it beautifully! Well done!
