Pretty Pink Posh/Card Maker Magazine Blog Hop

Hi, Friends.  Today I have a give-away to share with you.  Pretty Pink Posh is partnering with CardMaker Magazine in a blog hop and offering you a package of goodies.  Details of the giveaway are on the Pretty Pink Posh Blog.


Included in this giveaway package are the following items:

Stitched Borders 1 die cuts
Stitched Banner Duo 2 die cuts
6mm Sparkling Clear sequins
6mm Marigold sequins
6mm Espresso sequins
6mm Mossy Green sequins
6mm Pink Peonies sequins
Silver Confetti
Silver Star Confetti

Hopefully, you have come to my blog from Anita's blog.  If not, you may want to start at the beginning at the CardMaker Magazine Blog.

I've been playing with some wonderful toys from Pretty Pink Posh.  They make such pretty sequins, which seem to be the "trendy" embellishment of choice at the moment, as well as some unique dies.  I've used a bit of both on my cards today.  BTW, all of the images on my cards come from one stamp set, Lots of Words from MFP Stamp Shop.

My first card uses the pocket border die and some Sparkling Clear sequins.



With that pocket border die you don't have to add a tab to the card inserted into the pocket.  How clever is that!!!  Don't you love that stitched border across the top?

My second card is a relatively clean-and-simple get well card with some Watermelon sequins.


My third card is a shaker card.  The stitched banner die set includes both the banner and the square. You can cut them apart so that you can use them separately.   Or . . . if you don't want to have to do any measuring and plan always to use both of them, you can just leave them connected.   I used them both to make a shaker card, putting some 6mm Silver Confetti inside the shaker box.


The last stop of the hop is Pretty Pink Posh Blog.  Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
