Easter is Coming!

Previously, I colored several images from the new Pretty Pink Posh release using my copic markers and before you know it, another fun shaker card was done.

This Easter Friends set is so much fun with the adorable little kids all dressed up that I got into the Easter mode. Love how this little guy is all dressed up in his cute bunny costume and to cut out everything perfectly, I used the Coordinating die as it's a perfect match. 

In playing around, I thought to use the new Scallop Square Tags as I'm loving the shape, size, and amazing detailed stitching. Here, I'm using the bigger square tag. 

Since, I wanted to make this into a card, I pulled out my polka dot stencil to use for a background along with a light shade of blue from Simon Says Stamp called Surf Blue. Than, I added it to my pink base card stock. 
 
I must say, the new Friendship sequin mix is absolutely gorgeous in person with the different shades of pinks, not to mention, they are iridescent and sparkle like no other. Plus, it contains two different sizes, both 4mm and 6mm. 

To add a little bow on top of this shaker, I thought what better way but to use the Twine and Bow die from Pretty Pink Posh as it's perfect finishing touch. Added a little flower in the center of the bow using the Spring Flower Mix

Pretty Pink Posh New Release Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 1 of the blog hop showcasing Pretty Pink Posh's new release with tons of fun and inspiration. Plus prizes to be won. More information at the bottom. 

You should have arrived from the talented Nichol Spohr, but if you get lost, no worries, there is a complete line up list below so you can stay on track during the blog hop. 

I'm beyond thrilled to share these two cards with you today, so let's get started.

It's so much fun to create shaker cards, so I decided to create one using the new Stitched Notes Die to create my background scene and love how the set comes with separated V shapes dies so they can be placed anywhere on the cardstock to create a unique cut.  

Also, I'm loving this fabulous Friends Forever set where it comes with four adorable little kids to choose from along with flowers and more. Plus, the sentiments are a perfect match. Here, I used the Coordinating Die to help me cut out all the images. 

Here, you can see, I was able to cut out some V shapes to add in some pink card stock and green for the bottom. To fill in this shaker, I used the new 6mm Fresh Garden sequin and was so excited to see these pink flowers also in the mix. 

To enclose the shaker, I used these beautiful Scallop Frames, from Pretty Pink Posh where you can create a wonderful frame around any scene. The cute little sun with smile is from the Camping Friends set and couldn't resist to use.

Moving onto the second card for the day....

Once again, I couldn't resist but to use the new Stitched Notes Die for this card as I do love how it leaves a dual stitching border. For this card, you can see the stitching on the Pink card stock and on the background scene card stock. 

Plus, I love how it comes with 3 little banners to play with. Here, I used one of them along with some pink card stock. 

This Easter Friends set is so much fun with the adorable little kids all dressed up, easter eggs, and baskets where I colored them using my copic markers. Also used the Coordinating die to help me cut them out fast.

To fill this little shaker, I thought the new 4mm Fresh Garden sequin was perfect as it has a mix of wonderful spring colors and thought it would be perfect to resemble smaller little eggs that you could shake.

Happy Birthday with a Shakercard

We all love sales and today, Pretty Pink Posh is having a 15% off sale valid Monday February 20, 2017 valid with code. Check out her blog for more details.

Wanted to create a Happy Birthday shaker card for one of my IG friends to wish her a belated birthday and since I wanted to create one using a tag, I thought what better way, but to pull out this adorable Stitched Duo 1 die from Pretty Pink Posh as it also has these little stitched squares to add in little sayings along with sequins.

Before I started to piece this shaker together, I wanted to add some sentiments from the Birdie Friends set as I find the words perfect for any occasion, so I took this phrase out and put the words "hugs" above and "to you" at the bottom.

Than I thought it would be fun to add in some birthday balloons, so I pulled out the ornament from the Winter Friends set and did some alterations along with using my copic markers to color them in. Also, a good way to stretch your stamps. 

Here, you can see, by cutting off the hook, I was able to get two different looks for the actual balloon and then added a balloon string to each one. To give them dimension on the card, I added some foam mount tape underneath each one. 

Next, was the fun part of adding in these iridescent 4mm Lavender Moon sequins which I love the way they sparkle. In addition, depending on how the light hits, it creates different hues of colors, so I wanted to make sure to use them for this special birthday card. 

For the center focal point, I wanted to use this cute little bird from the Birdie Notes set as she has a wonderful smile and cheerfulness that would make anyone smile. Next, I used the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color it. 

Last but not least, I can't resist but to use this adorable little bow from the Holiday Pals set as I find it's the perfect little hair accessory. 

Don't forget to check out the 15% sale Pretty Pink Posh is having today as it's valid for today Monday 2/20/2017 only.

Pretty Pink Posh Annoucment and Design Team

Today, Pretty Pink Posh is announcing the PPP Design Team members for the next term and I must say I'm beyond excited and feel truly blessed to be able to work with Paulina and her amazing talented team since she is not only kind hearted and generous, but a fabulous amazing and wonderful person to work with. 

Today I had some fun creating this Happy Birthday card for one of my sweet friends overseas and have several more ideas for the upcoming days.

I just love this cute little penguin from the Winter Wonderland set of Pretty Pink Posh along with little girl all snuggled up in her outfit. Plus, the polar bear is darling, so I combined all of the images from the set on this card. 

For this scene, I also added a couple of trees which comes from the Winter Friends set and colored them using: YG03, YG17, YG68. 

For the Penguin, I used C3, C5, C7, YR68, R20 for cheeks. 
Sleigh and little girl outfit: R32, R35, R46

The background, I took some water color paper from Tim Holtz and used some distress inks: Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, and Tumbled Glass. 

Since I wanted some snow, I used my my favorite Scallop Borders to create the snowy hills by die cutting two and overlapping them together.

This card is easy and fast to make. Also added some 4mm clear droplets to resemble water effect to finish off this card.  

With the reopening of the shop and the new announcement of design team members, Paulina is having a giveaway that you can check out Here on her blog!

Season's Greeting with a Star

For today, I decided to do a quick and easy Christmas card using this gorgeous Stitched Stars die from Pretty Pink Posh as I love the size and rounded edges. Not to mention, love the stitching, both inside and out.

To create this, I frist cut out a square base measuring 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" and added some Red cardstock as my base and found this cute paper in my stash from Martha Stewart so I added it as well. I'll update the post with the name later on today. 

For the Star, I created a quick shaker using some silver glitter card stock along with some fun foam for the center. (Layer inbetween the shaker).....you can also use foam mount tape, but it's easy to die cut the star using fun foam and use that for the dimension. 

Before putting the star shaker together, I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Friends in the center and added several 4mm Holly Jolly Christmas Sequins mix.    

Finished off the card by adding some Twine and Bow using some red card stock and again in white card stock to add a shadow effect. In the end, this card measures 4 1/4" x 4 1/4". Super easy and fast to make. Hope you enjoy!

Merry Christmas

Back today with another Christmas card as we are getting closer to Christmas Day and plan on sharing more ideas on the days ahead. Also, joining in over at Simon Says Stamp Wenesday challenge of using Ice Inspiration

I had lots of fun coloring this cute little bear and Santa hat from the Winter Friends set from Pretty Pink Posh and adore all of the images in it. Also, I couldn't resist but to use this Poinsetta's, Pine, and Mistletoe again from the Mistletoe & Holly set from Essentials by Ellen to create this Christmas card. 

For this card, I'm using one of my favorites, the Falling Snow Stencil from Simon Says Stamp as my Ice Inspiration along with some texture embossing paste. Love the snow effect on Christmas cards.

Super easy to create several of these in one sitting. For the sentiment, I used the Merry and Bright designer dies from Essentials by Ellen and layered three of them together to create some dimension. 

To finish off this card, I used several 4mm and 6mm Gold Metallic sequins from Pretty Pink Posh as I love to add sparkles.
