PPP August Release Hop - Love You Rain or Shine

Good morning! Welcome to Day 2 of the hop to celebrate the awesome NEW RELEASE from Pretty Pink Posh! Paulina outdid herself on this release - new stamps, dies, sequins - and it is all so fun! Make sure and hop along - there are FOUR $25 gift certificates up for grabs - 2 for each day of the hop! (Comments must be left by 11:59 PDT on 8/17/16 - winners will be announced on the PPP blog)


I used the brand new Rainy Days Additions, Mini Storybook 1 Die, and Iridescent Mini Circle Confetti to make my shaker card for today!



As soon as I saw this set - I fell in LOVE with the adorable houndstooth umbrella - SOOOO seriously cute!I went with a purple color scheme, and heat embossed the umbrella in white on deep purple cardstock.



I used the Rainy Days Coordinating Dies (previously released, but work perfectly with this stamp set as well!) to die cut the pieces of the umbrella. Added a tiny bow from Twine and Bows dies and some Glossy Accents to the handle of the umbrella.


The inside of the window I created by stamping the cute striped cloud and sunrays dies from the new stamp set and heat embossing, then using a foam blending tool to add color over the top - yellow in the top right corner, blue on the left side.


I added some of the fabulous Iridescent Mini Circle Confetti to the inside of my shaker, framed the panel with Rectangle Scallop Frame dies, and added a few clear Droplets around the umbrella.

  14. I am such a sucker for pastels and soft color. Maybe it's because I'm rarely successful in creating them! You know what they say about the grass and the green.... In any case, I enjoyed seeing your card. Really like the way you combined the stamp set and the die. I would never have thought to put them together.
