Hi Crafty Friends,
I am so honored to join Pretty Pink Posh for their March Product release blog hop. I am madly in love with this brand lately. I started to hoard their products like no tomorrow. If you are one of my Instagram followers, you probably know what I am talking about. I immediately created a few projects out of the March release products. I am showing two of them here to tease you a little.
For my first card I used a sweet stamp set called Bunny Friends and Bunny Friends Coordinating dies. For my background I used Neenah Solar white 110 lbs Cardstock and blended Distress ink in Cracked Pistachio. I speckled it with mixture of water and the same ink after it was dry.
I cut the egg shaped window out of front of card with Happy Easter Shaker die. Then I used the same die to cut 5 sets of die cuts and adhere them together using Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I cut out the “Happy Easter” phrase so the center part of the window looks bigger. I ink blended the top surface of this die cuts using Distress ink oxide in Squeezed lemonade.
To create the shaker window, I placed a piece of Acetate over the cut out card base, and another piece of Acetate under the die cut. I used powder tool around the inside tape of the frame to prevent sequins sticking to the side of foam tape. I added Mini Sparkling Clear Flowers Sequins and Jewels in the middle, then adhere top and bottom to create a see through window.
Now it’s decorating time. All of the cute images were colored with Copic markers and cut out with the coordinating dies. I adhered colored images to the card and randomly placed 4mm Sparkling Clear Sequins and Buttercream Jewels. For the sentiment, I was brave enough to cut the original sentiment stamp apart so I could fit into this card then stamped with Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa.
For inside this card, I watercolor smudged on Tim Holtz watercolor paper using Distress oxide in Cracked Pistachio for the background. I also added some colored flower images, sequins, the Phrase from Happy Easter Shaker Die.
For my second card I used Best of Luck stamp set and Best of Luck Coordinating dies. To begin with, I cut out the front window using PPP Storybook 5 Die. I ink blended the card front and negative cut out of the window using Distress ink in Twisted Citron. Since I am so into speckling technique, I speckled the front with mixture of the same ink and water.
This time, I made shaker window again. Yes I just cannot have it enough. I stamped the sentiment onto the negative cut out using Memento ink in Rich Cocoa. Added acetate and foam tape to create the dimension so I could add Seed Beads in Spring Green and 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins. I arranged all colored images onto the card front. There you go. A cute and easy shaker card is made!
