MFTWSC263 - Sending You Love and Get Well

Hope everyone is enjoying their day! I needed a get well card to send to one of my friends and what better way but to send some love over. Therefore, I pulled out some more goodies and used the current sketch MFTWSC263 over at MFT Card Challenges to join the fun. 

Here is my card: 
As you can see, I kept this card Clean and Simple and added some watercoloring in the background with a light blue color to add some contrast. Than pulled out this cute panda from the Happy Pandas set as I thought it would be perfect for this card. 

For the sentiment, I die cut the word LOVE from the LLD Accent it - Celebrate die-namics using some Electric Red cardstock. Next, I used the same stamp set for the words "Sending You" and embossed it using white powder. 

To add some more details, I added several hearts from the Tag Builder Blueprints 3 using Pink Lemonade and more Electric Red. Than, I might have have gone a little crazy adding in these new little Gold Mini Star Confetti from Pretty Pink Posh but absolutely love them and couldn't resist.

As always, if you haven't checked out the challenge, please stop over to check out all the inspiration.

Pretty Pink Posh Turns 2 Birthday Celebration

Welcome!! I'm super excited to join and celebrate Pretty Pink Posh turning 2 ! This is day two of the blog hop, and if you've been following along from yesterday, I'm sure you've seen the beautiful new dies and sequins Paulina has designed. She's such a sweet person and thrilled about all of her products. 

You should have arrived from Pretty Pink Posh's blog, 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. 

Let's get started with this little 4.5 x 4.5 square card 
I love these new Scallop Square Frames, so I kept the dies together and ran it through the die cutting machine using three different colors to be able to use the negative cut as well which is inbetween the smaller and larger frame. This way, you can mix and match creating your own color combo. 

Next, I cut an acetate square size (3 7/8") to use as my base to adhere the frames together. They nest inside one another super easy plus have wonderful stitching detail.  

From there, I continued on to create this shaker card inspired by the new beautiful Share Kindness Sequins mix filled with two shades of blue and green. Plus added in these adorable new Silver Mini Confetti Stars and Iridescent Mini Stars in the background.

On the side of card, I added in this cute Stitched Tab with light blue where you can add a sentiment or use as a decorative look. 

From there, I finished off the card by adding this cute little racoon from the Three Amigos set along with adding two hearts with the XO from the Mini Messages set.

Next, is this Happy Birthday card using these beautiful Scallop Rectangles, where it creates a wonderful frame around any scene. Here, I popped up the frame using some fun foam to create dimension along with using the Sunday Stroll stamp set to create the scene. 

Last but not least, pulled out the Stitched Border 1 die to add this cute scallop border under the frame and used a darker blue to create a contrast. Absolutely love this border! 

Finaly touch was to add a few sequins from the Share Kindness Sequins mix along with adding these adorable new Silver Mini Confetti Stars

It's Your Birthday....Enjoy!

l love celebrating birthdays with family and friends and what better way, but to make them a special handmade card. So I pulled out all sorts of goodies and went to work. Here, I used this adorable stamp set called Carnival Cupcakes from Mama Elephant

To add in a little shimmer to this card, I used the Pearl White cardstock from Crafter's Companion along with the All Prettied Up die for the scallop base. Colored this little cute bear using my copics markers and moved on the finish the center.
I just love making shakers and thought it would be perfect to use this Stitched Banner Duo 2 to play with. I love the stitching detail on this die along with the banner flag at the bottom and round curve on top. Added in this adorable new Sweet Pea sequin mix and new Silver Mini Confetti stars which are my new favorites from Pretty Pink Posh.  

Last but not least, the sentiments, I used the Happy and Smile stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and embossed with white powder. Next, I die cut the wafer sentiment called Painted Enjoy along with Pearl White cardstock 

With this card, I'm celebrating one of my Instagram friend's birthday as a surprise to wish her not only a wonderful day, but all year round. Come back tommorrow to enjoy a few more cards along with Pretty Pink Posh blog hop second year birthday celebration.

Pretty Pink Posh January New Release Blog Hop

Welcome!! I'm so thrilled this month to showcase Pretty Pink Posh's new product release for January. It's absolutely amazing with 3 new dies and some gorgeous sequins.

You should have arrived from Joni Andaya blog, 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 so excited to share these two cards with you today, so let's get started with this card.
I just love this new Storybook 3 die with the amazing detailed stitching and rectangles. It makes it so easy to create little scenes or make each little box it's own design. 

Plus look at these new Sweet Pea sequins mix filled with Marshmallow, Lime Sorbet, Pink Blush, and Irridescent Ballerina Pink colors.
Also, look at these adorable new Mini Star Confetti in Irridescent and Gold colors mixed together inside this shaker card. They are awesome and so fun to play with.

For this second card, I started with the new Exclusive Scallop Squares which is one of my favorites with the inverted tiny scallops and detailed stitching to create this Happy Birthday card.
Next, I couldn't resist but to use more dies on this card. Therefore, I pulled out the Stitched Border 1  die for the grass and the scallop border across the card and under the frame. The Year Four stamp by Lawn Fawn was used to create this fun celebration scene.
When I first started this card, my inspiration came from the Share Kindness Sequins Mix which is a beautiful combination of Lime Sorbet, Cornflower, and Turquoise. Therefore, I added these along with some more Mini Star Confetti  in Irridescent and Silver colors for sparkles. 

Can you tell what else is new on this card? Okay, I'll tell you, it's these new fabulous Stitched Tabs, not only does the tab itself have stitching around it, but it also creates a straight stitched line before and after the tab which I love.  
The sentiments are from two Simon Says Stamps called: Sending & Wishing along with Birthday Messages. Last but not least, to create the dimension, I used white fun foam under the Scallop Squares and foam mount tape under a few balloons and clouds.
Let's continue celebrating with your next stop at Heather Hoffman

GIVEAWAY! During this blog hop, there will be (2) $25 Gift Certificates to Pretty Pink Posh up for grabs.
