Pretty Pink Posh May Release Blog Hop

Hello!!
So very happy your joining me today for day 2 of the Pretty Pink Posh blog hop for the May release products!
The new products are amazing,right?
You should have came from the lovely Heather Hoffman's blog but if you are starting here I will have a full list of the hop at the bottom of my post.

My first project features the new Woodland Critters stamp set and coordinating dies along with the Scallop Hexagon dies. I started with an A2 size piece of white card stock and temporary taped 3 of the hexagon dies down to run through my die machine. I used an A2 size card base and ink blended a few colors all over to create my background, I then adhered the panel I intially die cut with hexagons on top and adhered my hexagons in side the are for an in-layed look. For my sweet critters I stamped them all on watercolor paper and colored in with Zig real brush markers and cut out using the coordinating die cuts. I stamped my sentiment from the same stamp set under my large hexagon to finish my card!



My next creation is a shaker card, I used the Bold Blossom stamp set along with the Scallop Hexagon dies again. I started with an A2 size white card base and stamped my background with the shadow images in the set in grey ink to completely fill my background. I die cut the largest hexagon out with a bright pink card stock and assembled that into my shaker element with acetate and foam tape. I find the best adhesive to use on the foam tape when creating a shaker is a double sided tape such as scor tape as it's super sticky and makes sure everything stays put. I filled my shaker with new Navy sequins and Mini Sparkling Clear Flowers. I stamped some flowers from the same set on a separate piece of white card stock, colored in with Copic markers and die cut out using the coordinating dies to adhere onto my shaker element. I stamped the congrats sentiment from the Happy Owl Stamp set and cut out using the coordinating die and adhered just under my flowers on my shaker element.




Hope you enjoyed my projects! Next on the hop is the lovely Jessica Frost- Ballas. Be sure to comment along your way! There are 2 $25 gift certificates up for grabs! Comments must be left by 11:59pm PST on May 17/2017. Winners will be announced on the Pretty Pink Posh blog.

Enjoy the rest of the hop!!

  24. These hexagon dies are so cute, and love the way you colored them. Made great backgrounds for the adorable woodland creatures you colored so cutely. Your shaker card is so unusual with the navy sequins. Using a monochromatic color with Bold Blossoms makes the hexagon shaker stand out even mire.
