Pretty Pink Posh October Release Bog Hop

Hello Crafty Friends!!

Today is day 2 of the Pretty Pink Posh October release blog hop!
You should have arrived from Heather Hoffman's blog but if not I will have a full list at the bottom.
I'm very much in love with the new adorable stamp sets and the sequin mixes are truly amazing!

 For my first creation I used the new Christmas Friends stamp set. I started off with a white A2 card base and did some ink blending with purple ink towards the bottom of my card, becoming lighter handed towards the top. I used the Scallop Borders die from the previous release as my snow hill. For my sweet characters and presents I stamped them on separate card stock, colored them in with Copic markers and cut out using the coordinating dies, then adhering them on my card base To finish my background up I stamped the tiny snow flakes in the set and then added the 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins and some sequins and the snowflakes from the Winter Sparkle Mix. I finished my card off by stamping my sentiment into the snow area. 


For my second creation I decided to make a shaker card. I used the new Stitched Pieces Die on some pattern paper to create my shaker element and filled with gorgeous new Holiday Shimmer Mix. I ran the stitches pieces die through my die cut machine once again with some white card stock to have an area for my sentiment which I stamped fro, the Holiday Greetings stamp set (which is not available for purchase,this is a gift you receive free if you purchase $100 or more!) I stamped my little snowman from the Happy Snowman set on white card stock and fussy cut him out to adhere on the bottom of my shaker element. To finish off my card I die cut some silver glitter paper with the Scallop border dies and added some snowflakes from the same Holiday Shimmer Mix.



If you spend $100 or more you will receive the lovely Holiday Greeting stamp set, while supplies last!


Thank you so much for hopping along with us!
