Pretty Pink Posh 2nd Birthday Blog Hop!

I am so privileged to be part of Pretty Pink Posh team from the beginning! Paulina is such an amazing person. She is hard working, approachable, sweet, organised and enthusiastic! I love working with her and her amazing designs of dies and stamp set. Not to mention the beautiful colourful sequins and confetti!  So thank you for having me on your team, Paulina! All the very best for the future and wishing Pretty Pink Posh many more birthdays in the furture.

This is the second day of the birthday celebrations. Yesterday was the first. If you missed it, head over to Pretty Pink Posh Blog and hop the hop! There are plenty of prizes to be won. For today’s blog hop you should come from Melody Rupple‘s blog. If not don’t worry, I will list all the designers participating in the today’s blog hop later in the post.

I have two cards using Pretty Pink Posh dies and sequins and a video to share today. Hope you enjoy my projects.
This is my first card using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Banner Duo die set and Sweet Pea sequins mix!

My card is inspired by Sweet Pea sequins mix by Lisa Elton! I love the pinks, greens and white sequins in the mix. So pretty! I decided to layer the Stitched Banner dies add a big bold sentiment and embellish with the sequins from Sweet Pea mix.

I die cut four stitched banner from white cardstock and one using gold mirror cardstock. I sponged Spun Sugar, Worn Liptstick and Abandoned Coral distress inks on the four white die cuts. Spattered them with water and set aside to dry. I stamped the sentiment from the new Roses for You stamp set by Simon Says Stamp on the bottom of  the white card base. Coloured the sentiment with copic markers. Then stamped the leaves and coloured with copic markers again.

Then I layered and adhered the stitched banners on the top of the card front and embellished with sequins from Sweet Pea sequins mix.

I have a video tutorial showing how I made this card. You can watch the video in HD on my You Tube Channel.

If you like my video please give me a thumbs up! Also subscribe to my channel. I will have more videos coming every week.

Here are the both the cards together.

As a bonus, I have another card using the free stamp set called Birdie Notes. If you purchase more than $60, this stamp set is free. No code nor die you have add this stamp set to your order. This set will be added automatically to you order if your order is $60 and more. Details later in the post.

I love love the chick in the Birdie Notes stamp set. Absolutely adorable. In fact the entire stamp set is very cute. This is a card I made using the stamp set.

Just a little note card #2//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Background is pattern paper from an old Pink Paislee paper pad. I think it was last valentine’s release paper pad. I then used Scallop Frame die cut in black to frame the chick and the envelopes. The chick and the envelopes are copic colouored, fuzzy cut and adhered suing foam adhesives. I made  a slit on the beak of the chick and slid the smaller envelope inside. The sentiment is simply stamped on a piece of white cardstock, trimmed and adhered. I brushed the envelopes with Wink of Stella clear shimmer pen. Finally embellished with Lemon Drop 6mm and 4 mm sequins.

I am trying to get the word out so I don't mean to be Debbie downer but I am the only volunteer at my local Women and Children in Crisis center. I am having chemo myself and buy all the supplies for the cards they make for the children with terminal cancer as well as trying to continue as a flight nurse. Going thru chemo myself I know what a sweet little card can mean on a gloomy day. They put so much thought and love into every detail which amazes me because these kids have nothing but donated clothing food etc. Having some inspiration and a coupon to buy some sequins and other things is a blessing. They broke my BigShot so that my next purchase as I must carry everything home after our class but I know they will squeal with delight over being able to make fun cards and I truly appreciate your inspiration., I'm no Jmac or kwerner or any of those famous make it easy gals but your cards are fabulous!! God Bless!! Gabbylou@live.com
