my new favorite shaker card design + ppp blog day 2

Pretty Pink Posh has an adorable & playful new collection of cardmaking supplies and I'm thrilled to be joining day 2 of the blog hop to share ideas with you!

Before I show you what I made, there's more fun! There are 3 $30 gift certificates to Pretty Pink Posh up for grabs! Enter to win by leaving comments along the hop by 11:59pm PST of June 17th, 2024. The winners will be announced on the PPP blog.

Now let's talk cards!

I'm always obsessed with shaker cards but lately I'm especially smitten with shaker cards made by wrapping scrap plastic around a background to make a pocket! It's a great way to use stamp & die packaging and it's super easy!

For these cards I used the new PPP Utility Vehicles set. I LOVE the mail truck and some of the little images make fantastic shaker bits!

You can see the whole process in this video...


Your next stop on the hop is Jeannie Lieu and I know she is going to WOW us with something incredible!!!

And here's the whole list if you need it...


Thanks so much for hopping with us! Hugs!!!

P.S. Do you like the bright & bold coral background or the pale blue one better? I still can't decide, LOL!

mft walk in the park

Did you see the latest MFT card kit, Walk in the Park? It's adorable and I've got a quick card to share with you!

My amazingly talented friend Tiffany made a fabulous card with pink & orange sky and it inspired me to make mine purple!

I used Grapesicle cardstock as the base and used foam adhesive to adhere a white cardstock piece on top that has one of the sentiments from the Walk in the Park set.

Then I die cut the Two Trees from white cardstock and ink blended to add color. (TIP: layer Distress Oxide Salvaged Patina over Twisted Citron for a great shade of green.) I adhered the trees and some clouds (cut with Treetops set) to the purple cardstock.

It's super simple but I love the way it turned out and the graphic look!

Pop over to the MFT blog when you have a minute to see more with the Walk in the Park kit and maybe even shop a little😉

Thanks for stopping by!

mft walk in the park card kit

The MFT Stamps Walk in the Park card kit just hit the shop and it is so fun!!!

When I saw the sentiments in the Walk in the Park stamp set, I thought it would make an adorable graduation gift card!

I die cut a square window in a card panel and adhered acetate to the back. Then I adhered the play structure from the On the Playground set and a couple of clouds made with the JB Treetop set.

Then I foam mounted the panel to a folded card, leaving the top open so I could slide a clear pocket (with some graduation money) inside.

I highly recommend heading over to the MFT blog to see more and check out this great kit!

Thanks for stopping by!
