Pretty Pink Posh Instagram Birthday Hop (discount code & prizes!)

Good Morning!  Today I am participating in a big birthday Instagram hop for Pretty Pink Posh.  This release is packed full of super fun products.  Some items sold out quickly, but you can preorder them now.  I used several new release items on my tag today, and I also used the not-yet-released Crafty Critters stamps + dies that you can receive as a free gift with a qualifying purchase (see below). 

I created my tag with Pretty Pink Posh’s new Birthday Circles Coordinating Dies.  I absolutely love this tag die!  I originally planned to use the coordinating stamps, but one of my cute nieces celebrates her birthday this weekend, and she has a beloved chubby purple mouse stuffie, so I just had to use Crafty Critters instead.  It was too perfect!

I pulled out my prismacolor pencils to color the mouse and the Balloon Number.  (I have better control with them than markers.) Then I cut them out with the coordinating dies

I turned my tag into a shaker and filled it with the Rainbow Sprinkles Clay Confetti.  It has such bright, fun colors! 

We are so excited to tie this onto my niece’s gift this weekend.  My children recognized the mouse right away and have each put in a request for a chubby critter of their own. 

Make sure to head to my Instagram, so you can enter to win a $50 Pretty Pink Posh gift card.  There are three days of hops, so you have lots of chances.  Good luck and thanks for visiting today!

Sending Lots of LOVE

Happy Valentine's Day!  Just popping in quickly to send a little love your way.  Last week I shared a valentines card using a bunch of little hearts that I die cut with the small die in Pretty Pink Posh’s Valentine Hearts Dies.  Well, today's card is made with the sheet of all those negative cuts.  I turned it into a shaker and filled them with the adorable Love Letters Clay Confetti.

I created the sentiment by combining stamps from Sending Love and Love Balloons and mounted it onto a layered panel cut with the Stitched Waves Dies. (They are technically the negative pieces, but I love that the dies can serve more than one purpose.)

Little Love Card

Good morning!  I have a little (and truly it is little) valentine card to share today.  The fun thing about making crads with specific people in mind is that sometimes it takes you a bit out of your crafting norms.  

I'm not often drawn to soft pinks, but they fit this recipient perfectly...soft and lovely and warm and kind.  I love her. 
I die cut the small die in Pretty Pink Posh’s Valentine Hearts Dies several times and placed them in rows on my card base.  Then I blended a soft pink ink over the whole thing and randomly placed a few white hearts on top.
Next I used the large heart die from All My Love Dies and covered the bottom with Pink Blush and Bubblegum pearls.  I love how they kind of look like floating bubbles. Finally I added the love sentiment from the Valentine Hearts stamp set and cut it with the coordinating dies.  

This is such a simple little card, but it reminded me of the joy of making homemade valentines.  I'll be helping my kiddos finish theirs today.  I look forward to making valentines with them each year. :) Wishing you a wonderful rest of your week!  Thanks for stopping by!
