PPP March Product Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


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!

    Love all your cards but the St. Pats card is my favorite. My dad and grandsons birthdays are on March 17th and you gave me the inspiration I needed to make cards for them.

  9. Annalisa says:

    I love how you used different greens for your different cards. They really get different looks from those different shades. (Let’s see how many times I can say “different” in this comment! :/ ) I also particularly enjoy how the bunny shakers flows from outside to in. I aspire to that kind of coordination on my cards! Thank you so much for sharing these lovely ideas.
