Pretty Pink Posh May Release Blog Hop

Hi crafty friends! Today Pretty Pink Posh is celebrating the latest release with a fun blog hop and giveaway! Today I'm sharing two cards showcasing the new Stitched Borders 3 Dies and the new Enchanted Garden Embellishment Kit.

I was instantly inspired by the colors from the new embellishment kit and decided to make an enchanted garden of my own. I used the new embellishment kit as well as the 6mm Enchanted Garden Sequin Mix.
"Make A Wish" Shaker Card by Handmade by Yuki | Pretty Pink Posh & "Gleeful Gardens" by Lawn Fawn
I used the Stitched Banner Duo Dies to create my focal panel and shaker window. I die cut the banner from Simon Says Stamp "Khaki" cardstock and stamped the "Woodgrain Backdrop" stamp from Lawn Fawn in the same color ink to give a tone-on-tone look. I die cut the smaller square from watercolor cardstock and used Picked Raspberry, Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves and Chipped Sapphire distress inks to create a magical, night sky. I added some water droplets and went over the entire background with my clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. I die cut a piece of Simon Says Stamp "Olive" cardstock using the "Grassy Border" die from Lawn Fawn and die cut a piece of Simon Says Stamp "Cream Off" cardstock using the Picket Fence Die from Pretty Pink Posh. I used the hummingbird and flower from the "Gleeful Gardens" set from Lawn Fawn to create my little scene. I colored the images with Copic Markers and cut them out using the coordinating dies. I stamped the sentiment from the WPlus9 "Bubble Talk" set onto a piece of clear acetate using "Cotton White" StazOn ink and filled the shaker window with Lilac Garden Flowers Sequin Mix and 4mm Enchanted Garden Sequin Mix. I tied some of the twine included in the embellishment kit around the banner. I used the "Femme Frames" set from Mama Elephant to die cut a piece of purple pattern paper from the Avery Elle "The Jewel Collection" 6x6 paper pack and from cream cardstock to create a scalloped cardbase.

Flowers: E42, E43, E44, YG91, YG93, V12, V15, V17
Hummingbird: BV11, BV13, BV17, V01, V05, W2, W4

To finish the card, I added clear Wink of Stella to the flowers and hummingbird. It's hard to tell from the first picture, but the card is super sparkly in person.

For my second, I used the the stitched strip die from the Stitched Borders 3 Dies to create a fun stitched background.
"Sending Smiles" Shaker Card by Handmade by Yuki | "Bubble Talk" By WPlus9 & Pretty Pink Posh
I cut two pieces of coordinating pattern papers from the Lawn Fawn "Pink-Sized Patterns: Beachside" 6x6 paper pack using a stitched rectangle die. I then used the stitched strip die to create an inlaid die cut background from both panels. I used a larger stitched rectangle die to create a frame for the shaker window from white cardstock. I die cut the yellow sun from "Lemon Chiffon" cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I cut the grey hill using one of the stitched border dies from the "Stitched Borders 1" set. I heat embossed the speech bubble sentiment using "Liquid Platinum" embossing powder and colored the elephant using Copic Markers. I stamped the little hearts directly on to the shaker window with "Cotton White' StazOn ink.

Elephant: N1, N2, N4, R20

"Sending Smiles" Shaker Card 2 by Handmade by Yuki | "Bubble Talk" By WPlus9 & Pretty Pink Posh
I filled the shaker with Pretty Pink Posh sequins and silver stars. To finish the card, I added a few sparkling clear sequins to the front of the card.

I absolutely love how both cards turned out. The new dies and sequins are amazing and so versatile and I hope you were inspired by today's post. Thanks again for stopping by and your next stop is Gayatri Murali. ♥
