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!
