Pretty Pink Posh 1st Birthday Celebration--Day 3

Saturday, January 10, 2015

Welcome to day 3 of the Pretty Pink Posh 1st birthday blog hop celebration! Phew! That was a long intro. If you've never stopped by my blog before I'd like to thank you for taking the time to get to know me and my blog. However, if you already know me you'll know that I love to used PPP sequins on almost all of my cards. Paulina (owner of PPP), has the best variety if sequin colors and sizes. When her shop first opened I was apart of the grand opening celebration--and at that time she was only selling sequins, ribbon, and twine. She's come such a long way since and she's now carrying an awesome collection of US made steel dies. She was kind enough to send me a little package of new goodies (which have already been released for sale in her shop) and I had so much fun playing with them!

When creating the card shown in the image above I used the new PPP die, Stitched Duo 3. This is such a great die with so many crafting possibilities. You can use it to create an adorable window card, a shaker card, panel, or an over-sized tag! I choose to use it as a panel and I even turned it upside down. I did that because it fit the little hampster wheel better, hehe. In order to use this die to create a panel you will need a pair of wire cutters so you could separate the stitched squares out from die with ease. Aside from the cute Lawn Fawn stamps and watercolor detail I used when creating this card--I also used the awesome PPP Metallic silver sequins, in all three sizes! Don't the silver sequins look so darling?! 

Paulina is offering free prizes today BUT she's also offering something super sweet, too. If you place an order from her shop today you will receive a free gift with your purchase. Head on over to the PPP blog for more information, by clicking here

Since you came here from the blog of Gayatri Murali, you'll need to hop on over to the blog of Laura Streckx. She's next up on the blog hop and she'll have an awesome sample for you to view!

Happy Hopping!
