Pretty Pink Posh August Product Release Blog Hop!

Hello everyone!
You should have come from the talented Wanda Guess‘s blog. If not don’t worry I will give you a list of participants towards the end of the post.
Paulina released five new iridescent sequins and three new dies on the 1st of August. And they are already selling fast. Here are the pictures of the new iridescent sequins and new dies. They are all available for purchase from Pretty Pink Posh shop.
These sequins are beautiful especially in real. My eyes widens with a big smile on my face when I see these sequins, I tell ya! I love all the colours. Must have in my opinion.

The dies are so versatile. Love the Twine and Bow die. You can add bows on your card without adding bulk now. The Story Book 1 die is great to create your own story scene on your card. The Stitched Speech Bubbles are perfect to add smaller sentiment to the scene. I have put together some projects using these gorgeous dies. It is going to be a long post. So make yourself a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy!
 Here is my first card using the Twine and Bow die.

Happy Birthday bow card//

I simply die cut the die using coloured cardstocks and adhered on a white card front and added the corresponding coloured bows to it. I think this highlights the dies a lot. And to the bows I have added the iridescent sequins to its centre. The sentiment is from Birthday Messages from Simon Says Stamp which I white heat embossed on black cardstock and adhered on the card front using foam adhesives.

My second card here tells a fairy tale!

Fairy tale story book card//

I used Mama Elephant die to die cut a rectangle black panel with the stitched detail then used the Story Book 1 die to die cut the inside of the panel. This is my frame. I then diecut another white cardstock with the Story Book die and I am using the positive rectangle pieces. I masked and stamped the images from Under the Toadstool stamp set from Taylored Expressions. Then I copic coloured the images and also the background. I then inlaid the coloured panel in its place on the black frame with a supporting panel behind. This panel is mounted on a grey card base. Finally embellished with everyone’s favourite Sparkling Clear sequins.

This is special to me. Paulina emailed me asking if I want to put together a sequin mix. Oh my! Who wouldn’t, right? I was thrilled  and said yes. So here is my sequins mix called Tropical Days Sequins mix. This is limited edition. So get it fast before it disappears.


You all know I am a bright girl. I love everything bold and bright. My mix has very pretty pinks, oranges, greens and even iridescent sequins which will make anybody happy 🙂  I made a shaker card using the Stitched Speech Bubble die set and my Tropical Days Sequins mix.

Awesome Proud of you 1
On this card, I have used the positive and negative of the Stitched Speech Bubble die set. With the negative of the die cut I made a cover plate and used it to make a shaker card. Then I stamped the sentiment on the positive speech bubble and added the layered flowers in coordinating colours. The flowers are from Bloomers 1 die set from Taylored Expressions.

Now no blog hop is without prizes. Paulina is giving away two $25 gift certificates. Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop. Comments must be left by 11.59PM PDT on 9th of August 2015. Winners will be announced on Pretty Pink Posh Blog.

Apart from Paulina’s prizes, I am celebrating the release of my sequins mix Tropical Days by giving away one lucky random winner my sequin mix and one die set of their choice. Woohoo!  Winner will picked from my blog comments. Comments must be left on my blog by 11.59PM PDT on 9th of August 2015. I will announce the winner on my blog.
