Floral Hello Shaker - Pretty Pink Posh June Release Blog Hop


Good morning! Today I'm helping to kick off the first day of a two day blog hop to celebrate the Pretty Pink Posh June Release! There are some adorable new stamps, some awesome dies, and even a few lovely seed beads in new colors! You can check out the entire release HERE. There is TONS of inspiration to be found along the blog hop - and a few fabulous giveaways as well!


I have a card with a vintage feel to share today - inspired by the pattern paper I used on it! Sometimes I pull out a piece of pattern paper just to challenge myself to use it. This particular one was fairly bold and busy, so I wasn't sure if it would work as I hoped - but I ended up loving the finished card!


I started off by creating a shaker element with the new Hello Shaker Die, filling it with the previously released Lemon Drop Jewels. All the jewels that began releasing this year work AMAZINGLY for shaker cards I might add! I used my favorite foam adhesive for making shakers with Pretty Pink Posh dies (and PPP carries it in the store as well!) - Darice Double Sided Foam Sticky Strips. The thin strips are perfect for dies like this with a slender edge - just the right width, and a great price as well!


Next up - I have been loving the adorable Darling Dragonflies stamp set, so I thought it would be fun to add a few of those onto my card as well! I colored them to coordinate with my paper - but used some of the softer colors so they would pop out and not disappear into the background, then cut them out with the coordinating Darling Dragonflies Dies. Adhered them onto the shaker element, and added that to the front of my card!


Check out this fabulous die that you can get for free right now as well! I've been loving all the script word dies from Pretty Pink Posh - so elegant and versatile! This one will be great for so many things!

  41. I wouldn't have thought that the more cartoon-y dragonflies would work with the more vintage-y patterned paper, but it totally does! I love how you color matched the dragonflies to the flowers, and the bright yellow jewels in the shaker just make it that much more bright and happy. Thanks for sharing this with us; it's definitely given me some ideas to try (which is my favorite part of bloghops)!
