Pretty Pink Posh January 2016 New Release Blog Hop!


Hello everyone!

Welcome to Pretty Pink Posh product release blog hop!

JanuaryProductRelease

You should have come from the talented Yuki Yoshioka's blog. But if this is your first stop, don't worry, I will have the full list of participating designers towards the end of the post.

Paulina has released three dies and few gorgeous new colours and mixes of sequins today. Here are the three dies sets released today

 

The first die set is called  Stitched Tabs dies, the second is called Storybook 3 die and the third is called Square Scalloped dies. The third die is exclusive to Pretty Pink Posh shop.

Then there is a new sequins colour called Sea Breeze. This is a gorgeous vibrant blue. I love this blue. Then there is Gold, Silver and Iridescent mini star confetti. Love these! Finally there are two sequins mixes - Share Kindness mix and Sweet Pea mix. You can find them all at Pretty Pink Posh shop!

I have two cards showcasing the new Pretty Pink Posh dies. On my first card, I have used Storybook 3 die. 

Thanks card #1

This die is normally used as a frame for shaker box or just as a frame to layer on the card front. I wanted to use it for the background on my card. So I die cut a white panel with this die by placing it randomly covering the entire panel. I adhered this frame without the insides on to a white card base.
For the fillers, I die cut watercolour cardstock a few time. I want only the filler rectangles. I coloured the filler rectangles with pink Zig watercolour pen in ombre fashion. For the second layer, I added pink pearlescent  and final layer gold pearlescent from Zig Pearlescent Watercolour also from Pretty Pink Posh shop. Then I put the rectangle pieces back into its place like a puzzle using liquid glue to keep them in place. I LOVE how the background turned out. The pearl touch is so pretty in real.
 For the focal sentiment, I used Simon Says Stamp Thanks die in black with bunched up gold thread behind it. Finally I used the pink iridescent sequins from Sweet Pea sequins mix along with Gold metallic sequins. Here is a closeup.

For my second card, I have used the Stitched Tab die set in rainbow colours.

Congrats rainbow card

I die cut a few of  the three tabs die using white cardstock which is 2" x 5" in size. Then I used distress inks: Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon, Wild Honey, Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon and Dusty Concord to sponge colours on the die cut tabs. Then I adhered them on a white card base in rainbow order. Trimmed off the excess on each side.  Absolutely love the bright rainbow colours with the tabs and stitched details

For the focal point, I used Simon Says Stamp Congrats die. I die cut a two in black and one in black glitter cardstock. I then stacked and glued them for dimension. Then I spattered some iridescent mini star confetti and glued them down. This was a time consuming but I love the effect. Here is a closeup.

 And a flat version of the card.
