Pretty Pink Posh + Avery Elle Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the blog hop showcasing Pretty Pink Posh's and Avery Elle as they have teamed up this month to bring together tons of fun and inspiration along with prizes to be won. More information at the bottom.

You should have arrived from the talented Melania Deasy, 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 these beautiful Scallop Rectangles, from Pretty Pink Posh where you can create a wonderful frame around any scene along with this adorable little critters from the Woodland Wonders stamp set from Avery Elle  

I just love how these stitched scallops are inverted and add details to the frame and how could you not resist but to color in these cute little critters. For the background, I created the sky by using the Scallop border as a stencil from the Stitched Borders 2 set and sponged in ink to form the clouds.

Next, I wanted to create some grass, so again, I created another stencil by die cutting the largest scallop border from the Stitched Borders 4 set and placed the negative piece of the die cut down on my background to sponge in some green ink.  

Last but not least, I added some 4mm sequins in various colors and glued them in place using: Pink Peonies, Lemon Drop, and Sea Breeze . Next, I thought it might be fun to add some Woodlands Seed Beads to give the grass some texture and have fun shaking the card. 

Now moving onto the second card: 

Again, shaker cards are so much fun, so I decided to make another one using these cute little critters along with the Stitched Film Strip Die. Love the detail stitching on this die with the three rectangles. It's perfect to add in some sequins. 

Here, I added 4mm Lemon Drop on top, 4mm Sea Breeze in the middle, and 4mm Lavender Moon at the bottom which by the way is Iridescent and adds extra sparkles. Absolutely love it.

The background was created with ink blending and mixed together with four colors. Also, don't want to forget this cute little stitched scallop border from the Stitched Borders 1 set. It always adds a wonderful border detail. Don't you think? It's one of my favorites.

Let's continue celebrating with your next stop at Katie Gehring
