Pretty Pink Posh July Release Blog Hop + 3 Ways To Use A Circle Die


I'm so excited to be joining in the fun today, celebrating the July release from Pretty Pink Posh! (And by-the-way, did you see I have 2 posts in 1 day? I feel like a rockstar, LOL!) PPP is one of my favs because sequins are always a good idea, am I right?! Working at Ellen Hutson, I've gotten to know the amazing lady behind PPP and Paulina is even sweeter than her sequins! And PPP also makes the cutest stamps sets! 

Today I have 3 cards to share with you using some of the adorable Pretty Pink Posh July release and 3 ways to use a circle die.

#1. Create a mask.

Using your favorite masking paper, die cut a circle and use the negative piece to create a circular scene on the card front. I inked my circle with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I stamped the adorable fluffy clouds from the new Fly A Kite set, along with a kite string & sentiment. To create a shaker kite, I used the smallest Stitched Diamond cut from cardstock and the medium Stitched Diamond cut from acetate.
I used small scissors to cut tabs in the acetate, wrapped it around the cardstock and adhered.

Before adhering the last side, I filled it with sequins, the gorgeous new Mermaid Mix...trust me, you need this mix!

#2. Create a shaker window.
For this card, I actually created a faux shaker, a flat pocket filled with the cheerful new Sunny Days sequin mix. I sandwiched the pocket between my card and a panel with a circle cut from the side.

#3. Create a spinner.
Inspired by a birthday card from my sister, I thought a spinner would be fun. I masked off sections of a circle, inked and added summer images from the Fly A Kite and Summer Friends sets in coordinating ink colors. And I added a few sequins too because as I might have said earlier, sequins are always a good idea!

I used a black pen to define each summer wedge and attached the spinner with a big brad.

Thanks so much for coming by and keep hopping along to Shannon's blog. And here's the whole list in case you get lost:
