Pretty Pink Posh August Release Blog Hop

Hi crafty friends! Today I'm hopping along with Pretty Pink Posh to celebrate the new August release. I used the Mama Elephant "Charmed" set to make two super cute shaker cards.
"Happy Happy Birthday" by Handmade by Yuki | "Charmed" by Mama Elephant
For my first card, I used the super cute fox image to create a sweet shaker card. I colored the fox with Copic Markers and used pattern paper from Jen Hadfield "Cottage Living" 6x6 paper pack. For the background of the shaker window, I stamped the Lawn Fawn "Woodgrain Backdrops" stamp onto white cardstock using Simon Says Stamp "Fog" ink. I used the new "Twine & Bows" die set from Pretty Pink Posh for the bow. I colored the bow using my BG18 Copic Marker. I filled the shaker with 6mm Peacock Feathers, 6mm Peridot Mist and 4mm Sparkling Clear sequins. To finish the card I added 4mm, 6mm and 8mm Sparkling Clear sequins.

For my second card, I used the owl from the same set. For this card, I used the new "Storybook 1" die to create my shaker window. I die cut the edges of the shaker window using the scalloped stitched die from Pretty Pink Posh "Stitched Borders 1."
"Love Everyday" by Handmade by Yuki | "Charmed" by Mama Elephant
Instead of using acetate for my shaker window, I used vellum. I black heat embossed the sentiment from the Mama Elephant "Everyday Greetings" directly onto the vellum. I filled the shaker window with 6mm Blue Lagoon and 6mm Ocean Spray sequins. I used pattern paper from the Amy Tangerine "Rise & Shine" 6x6 paper pack and added 4mm and 6mm Metallic Silver sequins.

I absolutely love how both of the cards turned out and I just can't get enough of the new release. The dies are so versatile and are a must-have and how yummy are the new sequins? Thanks again for stopping by and your next stop is Suzy Plantamura!
