pretty pink posh turns 2!


i can't even begin to tell you how much i love pretty pink posh! pretty pink posh sequins inspired me to create my first shaker card, which i'm now totally obsessed with (more on that later in this post). ppp sequins are pretty much always the perfect addition to a card. and ppp's amazing creator paulina is the nicest & sweetest EVER, she's even giving you presents on ppp's birthday (scroll all the way down to see what you're getting)!

i'm trilled to help celebrate pretty pink posh turning 2! and of course i had to create some shaker cards (because as i mentioned, i'm obsessed).

first i created 2 valentine's shakers:
i combined the super cute ppp rainy days stamp & rainy day die sets with mama elephant bella letters and the "love" from essentials by ellen brushstroke christmas. for my umbrella shaker, i used the new & oh-so-fun share kindness mix. and for the cloud shaker, i used pink blush 6mm cupped sequins.

and then i created an encouragement card:


i used the new ppp storybook 3 die to create the window for my shaker. i used it twice, once to cut the rectangle from my card front and then again to create a silver frame. i did some no-line watercolor rainbow stars with a essentials by ellen stamp from the brushstroke christmas set. i cut clouds from the ppp rainy days die set, inked them, gave them a coat of glossy accents and embedded some of the new silver mini star confetti. i also used the mini silver stars inside my shaker, along with clear sequins.

and check out the bday gifts ppp has for you:

Is your 2nd card a see-through shaker card? If no, somehow it gives me that illusion. Nice combination of stamps from different companies. It extends the use of our stamps, not limiting us to one brand only.

I love the umbrella shaker! So clever. Did you have a problem getting the tape around the curve? I have only made one and had a bit of a fuss over the heart shape I chose. Should have done square or rectangle the first time out. Didn't turn out too bad, though. Thanks for a cute project.

I love shaker cards but am no good at making them. The kids at the Women and Children in crisis that I volunteer at saw a half done one I attempted and now they beg every month. They give these to children in our cancer hospital who are terminal and I know they would love them. I am going they chemo right now so I know what a simple card can do on a gloomy day. Thanks for all your inspiration. With love, Gabbylou@live.com
