Pretty Pink Posh August Release Blog Hop

Hi everyone!  I am so glad you've stopped by today for the Pretty Pink Posh Product Release Blog Hop.  Pretty Pink Posh has released three new die sets and five new colors of iridescent sequins, which are available exclusively at the Pretty Pink Posh site.



I've created a project featuring two of these new die sets, Twine and Bows and Stitched Speech Bubbles.  The delicate bows of from the Twine and Bows set are too cute for words.  And the Stitched Speech Bubbles are perfect for sentiments, or for creating a background.

I started the card by creating a background with a stencil and some ink blending.  The Avery Elle Orchid ink was a perfect match for the beautiful new Ballerina sequins.  The background gives some interest to my plain white card front, and creates a backdrop for my die cuts.


I used the Twine and Bows die set to cut a fun, sparkly accent for the front of my card.  Since I haven't used by favorite American Crafts gold glitter paper in a while, I decided it was time to bust it back out again.  I think the twine die would also make some adorable strings for balloons.  Or you could cut it in half and layer it up to make a tassel.  Don't be afraid to try new things!


I cut the Stitched Speech Bubbles from some Neenah solar white card stock.  I decided a grouping of them would make a fun focal point for my card.  I stamped a greeting on one of the speech bubbles and added some gold glitter hearts to the others.  Then, to add a little movement and a fun unexpected surprise to my card, I added one of the speech bubbles using an Action Wobble spring.  It shimmies and shakes and dances around. 


I've created a video tutorial walking you through the entire creation of this card.  I've also linked all the supplies used in this project below.

Make sure you stop at all the blogs along the hop and leave a comment for your chance to win one of two $25 Pretty Pink Posh gift certificates.  I've included links to all the other blogs below.  Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop. Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PDT on 8/9/2015. Winners will be announced on the Pretty Pink Posh blog.  Leave a comment here and tell me which of the new die sets or sequin colors is your favorite!

  102. Carissa, your card is absolutely stunning!! The way you used both sets of dies was creative and "out of the box" and I really like that. When you used the Twine & Bows die, you separated the bow from the rest and used the Stitched Speech Bubbles for both sentiments and as a decorated embellishment with the hearts. Very creative and gorgeous. I'm off to watch your video on YT now....thanks for adding that and sharing your talent.

    PS - I know it is a little off-topic for the hop, but I have to confess that I've been thinking about getting Action Wobbles and appreciate how you shared about trimming it to use, I was a bit worried about it being too big, now I will DEFINITELY be getting a pack!!!
