Pretty Pink Posh August Release Guest Designer - GIVEAWAY

Good morning! Excited today to be hopping along as one of the guest designers with Pretty Pink Posh to celebrate the release of 3 new die sets, and some fun new sequins! There are also some prizes to be won, so make sure and check out the bottom of this post to see more about that!

There are 3 new die sets, and some fun new iridescent sequins, as well as some fun new packs of sequins releasing. For my first project, I used both Storybook 1, and the bow part of Twine and Bows:


I used both the negative, and the inside of the dies - notice how there is stitching on both parts? I stamped a city skyline on the inside using an Altenew stamp set, and turned it into a shaker card with some of the new iridescent Blue Lagoon sequins and some Sparkling Clear 4mm sequins.


Next up, I played with the Stitched Speech Bubbles combined with Stitched Borders 2 dies:


I used an ADORABLE Mama Elephant stamp set to create my scene, stamping my sentiments on the fun speech bubbles. Added a few fun iridescent sequins to finish off - Peacock Feathers, Sunshine Glow, and Blue Lagoon again. Each little girls dress is covered in Wink of Stella too - hard to see the sparkle, but it goes so fun with the iridescent sequins!


Finally, I wanted to used Twine and bows all on it's own to create a "gift package" on a card:


I used a simple rectangle of solid cardstock, and wrapped two sets of the twine around. Layered two bows on top of each other, then stamped some florals from Altenew around it, together with the simple sentiment. Layered it on a doily, and some Crate Paper pattern paper, then finished off with some more iridescent sequins, this time in Strawberry Burst - and a few more Sparkling Clear 4mm sequins - probably one of my all time favorites! :)


There are two $25 gift certificates up for grabs along the hop - winners will be picked randomly from comments along the hop, so the more comments you leave, the better your chances! Comments are open until 11:59 PM PDT on 8/9/15, and winners will be announced on the Pretty Pink Posh blog. Here is the entire blog hop line up:

  104. Hi Heather ~ Your cards are gorgeous (and I'm a sucker for a shaker card!). I really like the way you used the Stitched Border Dies with the beautiful skyline stamp. This is stunning. I always enjoy using more than one die and a card and you did that fabulously on the second card. I think the way you used two of the Bow & Twine dies on top of that lacy doily makes that card look extra special. I don't think I would have thought of that and it looks beautiful. Well done!

    ReplyDelete
  105. Wow! The altenew stamp looks great with the storybook dies - and I love that the stitched detailing is on both the positive and negative parts! The little mama elephant kids just look so cute with those speech bubbles too. What a great showcase of these amazing new dies!
