Pretty Pink June Blog Hop - Pandas and Geraniums

HI and welcome to Day 2 of the Pretty Pink Posh June Release Blog Hop! Hop along for lots of inspiration and prizes! 

Be sure to leave comments on each stop. Pretty Pink Posh is giving away 4 $25 gift certificates to four random comments (2 winners each day) left before June 19, 2018 at 11:59 PM PST. The winners will be announced next week on the PPP Blog!




I have two projects to share with you today featuring a number of the new products from the June Release. 

My first card features the new Koala Friends Stamp Set and the Koala Friends Coordinating Dies

I created a simple background of clouds and grass using distress inks and then a die cut a frame with the Scallop Hexagons Dies. The koalas are colored with Copic Markers and then layered inside the frame along with a few sequins from the Sparkling Clear Confetti Mix

The sentiment is included in the Koala Friends Stamp Set. I finished off the card with a watercolor geranium and leaf from the new Geraniums Stamp Set and die cut with the Geraniums Coordinating Dies. 

 
The center piece of my second card is the new Hello Shaker Die. I cut die directly into the card front to form the opening and the die cut the Hello Shaker Die again from a pink cardstock, layering acetate and foam tape behind the window to form the shaker. Then I dropped in three of the beautiful new seed bead colors, Cotton Candy, Pewter, and Rose Pink


I framed the shaker window with pretty flowers from the new Geraniums Stamp Set and die cut with the Geraniums Coordinating Dies. 

BONUS: We’re giving away a free not-yet-released die in each order over $60 this month, while supplies last!



Thanks for hopping along! Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win! You can stop by the Pretty Pink Posh Blog for all the details!
