Pretty Pink Posh - October Blog Hop



Hello Everyone...today is one of the exciting Blog Hop we have for Pretty Pink Posh. I know you guys will really love these new products...endless possibilities I might say <3. You should be coming from Kathy Racoosin blog :)




For this first project I used the large scallop stitched die from the new Stitched Borders 2 dies. and created a goodie bag, since lots of the holidays are coming up, just want to use these dies and extend the usability of them. I used the 12 x 4 3/4 white cardstock to create this project. Before adhering the goodie bag together, I first decorate the front of the goodie bag using the Wplus9 Pretty Peonies stamp set.




To begin, I die-cut both ends of the 12 x 4 3/4 white cardstock really close to the tip from top-to-bottom using the large scallop stitched die from Stitched Borders 2 dies. You might need to do this few times to get your desired measurement. I then scored the middle 1 inches to create the fold. I also die-cut the top and bottom potion using the oval stitched die from the Stitched Tags dies to create the handle for the goodie bag. I also cut a 3 x 3 inches of white cardstock and scored the middle to adhere on the sides of the bag, this will help me secure the goodies that I will put inside to avoid from falling.




Here's the view just to show you I adhered the 3 x 3 inches of white cardstock on both sides of the goodie bag. Make sure the bottom of the 3 x 3 is close to the score fold on the goodie bag to avoid gaps.



Next, I adhered the stamped flower die from Wplus9 Pretty Peonies to one of the Stitched Tags dies . Then clip the handle of the goodie bag with a clothe's pin and added some Sand sequins 4mm & 6mm from Pretty Pink Posh to finish off the bag.



Here's the full view of the goodie bag :)



For my second project I created a card to go with the goodie bag using the new Stitched Borders 2 dies. I used the stitched straight line die and the elegant scallop stitched die.  

First I stamped the images at the bottom of the card base using the Wplus9 Pretty Peonies stamp set to match the goodie bag. I then die-cut a strip of white and kraft cardstock using the elegant scallop stitched die from the new Stitched Borders 2 dies and adhered on the top of the card base. 

Next I stamped the sentiment "Congrats" using the Wplus9 Strictly Sentiments 5 stamp set. I also used another sentiment "to the bride & groom" from Wplus9 Fresh Cut Wreaths stamp set.

Next, I added the die-cut stitched straight line on top of the card for balance. Then added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins in Pink Peonies 4mm & 6mm to finish off the card.



Here's the full view of the card.



For my third and last project, I used the negative of the Stitched Tags dies to create a window for these cute little people from Mama Elephant In My Heart stamp set. These tags are just the perfect size. I also used the stitched straight line die from the  Stitched Borders 2 dies and adhere the strip on the top and bottom of the card.

In this view I just want to show you the dimension of the card panel. The little people is also adhered with dimensional foam tape as well as the window panel.



To create the backing of the card window, I first drew pencil lines using the window panel as a guide. I then cover each shape with post-it pad one at a time. I distress each shape with 2 colors of distress ink pad to make the color pop more. Once the distress is done, I erased the pencil marks with an eraser for a cleaner look.



Next, I stamped more image from Mama Elephant In My Heart stamp set, including the butterfly and the star. But before I assemble, I adhere the strip of kraft on top and the bottom of the card panel window and stamped the sentiments from Wplus9 "Hugs and Kisses" from Valentine Wishes stamp set and "I Miss You" from Hand Lettered Hello stamp set.

Couldn't help but add more Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh in all 3 sizes to finish off the card.



Here's the full view of the card.


I hope you guys enjoyed these Pretty Pink Posh products.
