May Release--Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop

Thursday, May 14, 2015

If you are arriving at my blog from Gayatri Murali's blog--Welcome!

I'm so excited to be apart of the Pretty Pink Posh May release! Paulina has created some pretty amazing dies and also added a range of new colors to her sequins collection. I'm absolutely in love with these three colors in particular; Lavender Moon, Bermuda Blue, and Cornflower. When I was creating with them I thought they would fit perfectly with this mermaid wood mounted stamp by, Stampendous, that I have in my collection. I've used this image before but this time around I wanted to create this adorable shaker card with these sparkly iridescent sequin colors.

I stamped the mermaid image onto a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper and use his distress ink pens and pads to color the image in. I also used the PPP new die from the set, Stitched Boarders 3, and used a Paper Smooches stamp set, Sentiment Sampler, for the "Happy Birthday Greeting. Don't you just love the stitched detail on that strip of vellum? Faux stitching adds such pretty detail.

Now for the Prizes--Paulina is giving away 2 $25 dollar gift certificates and all you have to do is leave a comment. She will pick the winners randomly from all of our blogs! Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PDT on 5/18/2015 and the winners will be announced on the PPP blog.

Next on the hop is Amy Kolling, and for your convenience there is a list of the hop line up in case you get lost.
