Pretty Pink Posh New Release Blog Hop!


Hello there!  I am so excited to be part of the August Release Blog Hop for Pretty Pink Posh!  Three new amazing dies and a bunch of new sequins were just released, including new colors of my favorite iridescent sequins PLUS a new size and new mix of my other favorite, Sparkling Clear!  You can see the entire new release here.

This release includes the new Storybook 1 die, and boy is it a fun one!  It is so versatile, and I can't wait to play with it some more!  I made two cards using this die, and the possibilities are endless!  For my first card, I diecut a piece of white cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangles largest die, and then ran that through my diecut machine again centering the Storybook 1 die on the stitched rectangle.  I knew I wanted to make a shaker using a  mix of the iridescent sequins, both the older and brand new colors.  They all look so gorgeous together!  I added acetate behind the panel and then created my shaker.  I glued the largest rectangle from the Storybook 1 die back into place over the acetate so that you can only see the sequins in the bottom two windows.  I used images from the Papertrey Ink Tremendous Treats Birthday stamp set, along with their coordinating dies, but the "Happy" and stars dies from the PTI Tipped Tops die collection.  The tiny stars are from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Card die collection.  I popped the shaker up onto a striped card base that I created with black strips of cardstock.

Here is a close up of those yummy sequins!  The entire collection of iridescent sequins work so beautifully together!

For my second card, I also used the Storybook 1 die.  This time, I created a horizontal shaker card.  I used the Paper Smooches Halloweenies stamp set and Papertrey Ink Spiderweb Trio dies to make my first halloween card of the season!  This time, I left all of the windows in the die open, and used some of the new Peacock Feathers sequins along with the Peridot Mist, Sparkling Clear and Sunshine Glow sequins in my shaker.  I also used the fun new Speech Bubbles dies!  There are three different sized bubbles in the set, and  each has fun stitched border!
