Pretty Pink Posh May Release Blog Hop.

Hiya everyone!

Welcome to Pretty Pink Posh's May release blog hop.

As you know, there are two new set of dies released beginning of this month. They are called Stitched Banner 2 dies and Stitched Borders 3 dies. And some beautiful sequin mixes called Enchanted Garden mixes and kit. And some really pretty iridescent sequins called Sunshine Glow, Peridot Mist, Lavender Moon and Strawberry Burst.

Today, we are doing a blog hop showcasing the new products.




You should have come from the gorgeous and talented Yuki Yoshioka's blog in the hop. But if you are here first, then don't worry I will give you the list of designers towards the end of the post.

Here is my card using dies from both the sets.

PPP may release 1

Here is how my card came about. I chose the colours from the Enchanted Garden sequins mix. Then I wanted a layout for the card. Joni has started a new sketch challenge at Wplus9 and so I picked her sketch as the layout for my card. 


To participate in the sketch challenge, I picked Botanical Bunch stamp set from Wplus9 to use. Then I picked a technique to use. Watercolouring  it was, Of course! Then looking at the Stitched Banner Duo 2 die, there is the banner and the small circle. So I thought if I spotlight the flower cluster image with the circle, it will awesome. So I stamped the flower cluster from Wplus9 stamp set in grey on the banner die cut and white embossed on watercolour paper to watercolour. I then die cut the three flowers out of the cluster using the circle die. I watercoloured the flower shading the colours from the Enchanted Garden sequins mix. Then brushed Wink of Stella shimmer. I then foam mounted this circle on the banner die using foam adhesive. So just the three coloured flowers are spotlighted.

For the background I used the double stitched strip die from the Stitched Borders 3 die set and die cut three different shades of pink and purple. I wanted varied heights for the strips. So I kept some of them as is and trimmed a few others down to two different heights. Then glued down the strips on a white panel which is about 1/2' smaller than the card front. I mounted the banner on the striped background panel using foam adhesives. Then mounted this entire panel on grey card base using foam adhesive again.

PPP May release 3

For the sentiment, I stamped the sentiment from Wplus9 Unforgettable stamp set on one of the purple die cut strip to match and adhered on the tag. Finally I have used Enchanted Garden mix and Strawberry iridescent sequins to bring everything together.  I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. Hope you do too. 

Now, Paulina is giving away two $25 gift certificates to two lucky winners. So please comment on all the blog in the hop because the winner will be chosen randomly from any of the blogs. Comemnts must be left bu 11.59PM PDT on 5/18/2015. Winner will be announced on Pretty Pink Posh's Blog.
