Pretty Pink Posh October Release Hop

Good morning! I'm so exciting to be joining Pretty Pink Posh again as a guest to designer 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! (And...I happen to have a separate little Pretty Pink Posh giveaway posted HERE as well if you are interested in that!)

I had so much fun playing with the new dies, sequins, and those amazing dew drops! First up - I actually made a set of two cards, by inlaying the dies from the Decorative Tag 1 Die set:


This is the first one - I also used a darling stamp set I had been dying to get inky from Lawn Fawn called Winter Alpaca. So totally cracks me up!!! The background was cut with Stitched Duo 2 Die around it, then I used a Wplus9 die for the scallop edges.


Here is the second color combo - see how I reversed the colors? Since I was inlaying different colors, and had enough for two cards, it was super simple to make them both at the same time!


I also used the new Mini Tags dies to cut a tag out of vellum and heat emboss my sentiment, then added the 4mm Droplets and 6mm Droplets


Next up, I can never resist a lovely sequin shaker card! For this one I used the fun Storybook 2 Dies, and added a snowy landscape using Memory Box Country Landscape die


Used that same Wplus9 die for the scallop edge, and some Simple Stories pattern paper - nice and elegant! Sentiment is from a Mama Elephant stamp set, heat embossed on vellum.


I filled my shaker with a mix of the elegant 4mm Royal Garden mix, and a few Gold Star sequins and some Silver Shimmer Seed Beads.


I love mixing different things into my shaker card - don't you?!?!?


I also used those amazing new Droplets on this card - you can read more of the details HERE if you are interested! :)


Thanks so much for stopping by today! There are TWO $25 Gift Certificates up for grabs today for comments left along the hop - so make sure and hit every stop, and leave some love! 

Here is the entire Blog Hop Line Up:
