blue elephants, glimmer paste & the pretty pink posh hop


I'm so excited to be hopping today with Pretty Pink Posh and some crazy talented makers! The new release from PPP is so adorable and I'm particularly smitten with the new Elephant Friends!


Not only are these little pachyderms completely adorable but they are also super versatile! I had a blast pairing them with one of PPP's new stencils and some die cut sentiments, creating Mother's Day, Father's Day & birthday cards!


These cards include a bunch of my favorite things - colorful critters, stacked die cut sentiments and stencils with glimmer paste! And I've created a short little video sharing a bit more...







Now not only are we having fun sharing lots of crafty projects with you today but there are also prizes! There are 4 $25 gift certificates up for grabs. Leave a comment for the chance to win! Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PST on 5/8/2019. Winners will be announced on the PPP blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have fun hopping and here's the whole hop list...

Hugs!
Carly
