Blog Birthday Giveaway #11 - Pretty Pink Posh

Good evening!!! So - this little blog is celebrating FIVE years this month - on October 20th!!! I can hardly believe it has been that long, and yet in some ways I don't remember not doing this. I have been SOOOO incredibly blessed by all the amazing people I have met through this hobby - and so incredibly lucky to work with some AMAZING products and companies. To celebrate I have lined up TONS of giveaways from some of these amazing places. HUGE thanks to each of them for their generous donations of prizes - I'm super excited to be able to share them with you!

Sorry I'm a bit late with tonight's post - we had a baby shower to go to, and I just got home to work on it! Tonight's giveaway is from (as always!) another one of my favorite companies - Pretty Pink Posh!!! Paulina was super sweet to provide a $25 gift certificate for my to give away! Pretty Pink Posh is well known for beautiful sequins and lovely mixes of colors, seed beads (super fun for shaker cards!), adorable die cuts, and the recent new addition - dew drops! She also has a blog full of wonderful inspiration, and a DT that always puts her product to beautiful use. No shortage of inspiration - that's for sure! I was so excited to be invited to guest design for her last release, and again for the current release (available in the store, and a blog hop later this week to celebrate!). The Facebook group for the release later this week (find it HERE) is full of giveaways and fun!

I made the card below using my very favorite sequins - the sparkling clear, and one of my favorite dies from Pretty Pink Posh - LOVE that edge!


The Sparkling Clear sequins come in a variety of sizes - I love to mix and match them on my cards, like this one! I added a sprinkling around my watercolored image from Wplus9's A New Day stamp set. My favorite way to attach them is with Glossy Accents - but I've heard lots of different methods - so I suggest trying lots to find what you prefer! I also used one of the edge dies from Stitched Borders 2 - I love this pretty stitched scallop! Finished off with some Crate Paper pattern paper, a bit of jute twine, and a rounded corner.


I am also linking this up with Virginia's View Challenge - All Things Colored:


Here is tonight's giveaway:


You can enter the giveaway below using Rafflecopter - this is my first time using this method for a giveaway, but since I have so many to do this month I thought it might help make it easier! So - if there are any bumps along the way, please forgive me as I figure them out? 

All giveaways will stay open until the 20th (the official birthday date!) and I will announce all winners that day! If you already follow on Pinterest, Youtube, or Facebook - feel free to leave your name for each day of giveaways, no need to be a new follower only!

Have a wonderful day - and good luck!

  12. BEAUTIFUL card Heather!!!
    Your bird is lovely and your delicate background perfect with the lacy edge & scattered sequins - LOVE IT!!!
    Funny you should ask about sequins ... I just finished making a shaker this afternoon :) Although they are fun, now that I have some different adhesives, my favourite way to use them is as a sparkling accent, just like you have done today. I treasure my PPP sequins and always make sure I have plenty of my must-have sparkling clear ones on hand.
    THANK YOU for sharing your card and for giving us the chance to win too!!!

  24. Such a delicate look with the doily and sequins, yet colourful and striking too! LOVE sequins, clear ones are the BEST because it maintains the clean look. I love to use them randomly, ideally with three different sizes, sort of scattered, yet with plenty of clean space too. A tiny smudge of ink can be taken care of with a well placed sequin! :)

  29. I absolutely ADORE Pretty Pink Posh!!! Her sequins are the best out there and her dies are innovative and fun!! My favorite ways to use sequins is to put them in the centers of flowers, covering up boo-boos, adding a little bit of sparkle to a card and SHAKER CARDS!!! Using them in shaker cards adds more fun or more class to the card depending on what angle you want!!!! Thanks for the chance to go on a little sequin spree! :-)

  36. Gorgeous colouring and I like the soft grey wash in the background. I also like the two different sized sequins - must check out PPP. I'm pretty new to using sequins on my cards and only have one size. I think getting other sizes will help me to use them more.
