Boo Shaker (PPP Instagram Hop)

Good morning!  Over on my Instagram account I’m participating in a hop to showcase more of the latest Pretty Pink Posh August release.  

I absolutely love the clay confetti in this release, so I made a shaker card.  I paired Candy Corn Confetti with the new Boo Shaker Die.  The Boo Shaker die can be used multiple ways.  As you can see, you can leave it as is (I just doubled up the sentiment), or you can trim the center out and use the jack-o-lantern face cutout instead. 

If you look really close, you’ll see my favorite part. I used the Candy Background Stencil to emboss the background.  The detail and texture on it is so wonderful in person! 

I hope you’ll pop on over to my Instagram to join the hop and get entered there to win some prizes.   Wishing you a happy start to a new week!

Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop Day 3 + GIVEAWAY

Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Pretty Pink Posh August Release Blog Hop!  You should be arriving from the incredibly talented Mayra.  If you're just joining us, make sure to start back at the Pretty Pink Posh Blog, and comment along the way, so you can have lots of chances to to win the giveaway (more details at the end of the post).
This release is full of so many fun products, but the one that stole my heart right away is Monster Hugs.  It has the cutest little crew of monsters!  I used a bunch of them on my cards today.  
I wanted my cards to have lots of color, but didn't necessarily want to color, so I heat embossed all the images with white embossing powder onto raspberry pink, orange, bright yellow, and black cardstock.  Then I die cut them with the Monster Hugs coordinating dies.  
My first card has a little line of trick-or-treaters.  I'll let you guess which one was inspired by my daughter. :) I placed the Spooky Fence Die along the bottom of my card base and popped up the little critters in front.  I wanted the pink monster to really stand out, so I added some glitter and a googley eye. 
I decided to create a sentiment that would lead your eye down to the little pink monster, so I did an ombre of sorts with the Trick or Treat Script Die set and added just a few stars that I cut from the Halloween Wreath coordinating dies.
I thought the googley eye looked so cute that I knew I needed a whole card full of googley eye monsters.  I pulled out the Slimline: Peekaboow Windows Die and set to work on that next.  
I added just a few glossy black jewels along with the floating googley eye monsters in the windows and finished it all off with an embossed sentiment from Monster Hugs.  I really appreciate that this set was designed to be used for more occasions than just Halloween.
I still had a pretty big pile of monsters left, so I took them all out and arranged them on my final card around the Happy Halloween Script die set
I poppped the monsters up for a little added dimension.  This was such a quick and easy card...I love when that happens!
I can't help but smile when I see these cute little monsters all together.  

I'm so glad you visited today.  I hope you'll keep hopping along.  Besides oodles of inspiration, there are three $25 Pretty Pink Posh gift certificates up for grabs (one winner each day of the hop).  Winners will be randomly selected along the blog hop, so make sure you hop and leave comments along the way.  Giveaway closes 8/16/21 at 11:59 pm PST.  I'm the last stop on the hop, so here's the full line up just in case you missed a stop along the way.
