Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop!




Hello stampers! It's time for another new release blog hop with Pretty Pink Posh! There are (2) $25 gift certificates up for grabs. Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop. (Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PDT on 8/10/2014. Winners will be announced on the PPP blog). You should be arriving here from Amy's blog. If you would like to start at the beginning, the complete list is below or you can head over to the PPP blog. 

 
My card today features the new {Film Strip Die}. I've die cut it using white cardstock then added some decorative paper and a mix of sequins to turn it into a shaker! I've used 6mm Aquamarine, 6mm (flat) Mossy Green, Red Heart Confetti and 4mm Marshmallow sequins. After adding some decorative paper and a snippet of a paper doily, I added my bow made from Chevron Twill Ribbon: Turquoise and twine (from a former embellishment kit).  A few more pieces of heart confetti were added for good measure!

I have a bonus card to share. This one features the three little rectangles that come out of the Film Strip Die and they're stitched too! 


This time I fussy cut some blooms from the same decorative paper. I added a panel of decorative paper that was die cut with the curved Stitched Border 1 die and a border cut with the Scallop die from the same set. The card was topped off with another Chevron Twill Ribbon/Twine bow combo. A few 4mm Sparkling Clear and 6mm Marshmallow sequins were added for pizazz!

                                                                                           
That does it for me, hop on over to Debby's blog and prepare to be amazed!
