Pretty Pink Posh November Release Blog Hop

Hi there!
So very happy to be joining you today for the Pretty Pink Posh November release blog hop.
All the new products are amazing and I had so much fun creating with them!
You should have arrived from Lisa Elton's blog, but if you happen to be starting here I will have a full list of the hop at the end of this post.

I have two creations to share with you today!
I started with a white card base and although its hard to see I used the Merry Christmas die and some of the festive holly leaves dies to emboss the background with. Rather than using a cutting plate in your die cutting machine you would use a rubber mat and it will emboss instead of cut!
I then created shaker elements out of the open leaves from the festive holly dies and filled with the 4mm Vintage Christmas mix. I adhered my elements onto my card and die cute my sentiment from dark red card stock and adhered onto my card.




For my second creation I used the very adorable Winter Woodland stamp set along with coordinating dies, Sparkling Clear Snowflakes and the Starry Night Sequin mix. I started with a fog piece of card stock that I cut slightly smaller than an A2 size card. I used the Scallop Circle to make the circle opening to create my shaker piece. I used the Scallop Circle die cut again with a piece of white card stock so I can adhere the scallop frame on top of my acetate. I loaded my shaker element with Sparkling Clear Snowflakes, Starry Night mix, Snowflake Sequin Mix and the Silver Star Confetti.


I stamped my images on watercolor paper and colored in with Zig real brush markers and cut out using the coordinating dies, and adhered over my shaker piece, I stamped some of the snow onto the background and stamped my sentiment onto the bottom.
I adhered my main panel onto a light blue card base.




That finishes my creations today! I hope you enjoyed!
Next on the blog hop is Cathy Zielske.

  49. I love how you did something different with your card! I never saw anybody make a shaker card out of part of the card. You did it with the holly leaves. How cool is that? I love it! I don't have a die cutter so I can't possibly do that to any of my cards but you have one and you did it! Wow! Everyone on this hop has done something different and I am loving everything I'm seeing.
    Your second card has those cute animals that I want to get when I win something. I love how colorful your card is and how you used a yellow/orange color on the fox. Yellow is my favorite color in the whole wide world and you used it! I love it and I love how you did that shaker card. You're coloring is so pretty. Your card making is stunning.
    Thank you for showing us your pretty and creative cards and for giving us the chance to win something.
