Easter Shaker Cards - Pretty Pink Posh

Hello friends! Leica here.

It's Easter Theme Week at Pretty Pink Posh and today I have 2 very similar shaker cards to share with you. 

For the first card, I took a 4.25 x 5.5 inch panel and ink blended the top with Kitsch Flamingo and the bottom with Cracked Pistachio distress oxides. I splattered white and gold paint for added interest. I then ran the Scallop Ovals die in the center of the panel to make a frame for my shaker card. I adhered clear acetate to the back of the panel and before adding the foam tape, I stamped the Happy Easter sentiment onto the acetate using Staz on Ink. Next, I added the foam tape around the frame. My favorite one is from Heffy Doodle, as it is thicker than the 3M tape and there's no need to double stack to create the well for the shaker elements.  

I then made my A2 card base and ink blended with Antique Linen distress ink. For the shaker, I used PPP Sherbet Clay Confetti mixed with Sunshine Yellow seed beads. I love the way the shaker beads sound! 

Now that the base for the shaker card is ready, I stamped, color, and cut the Easter eggs from the new Spring Eggs stamp set, the cute girl in bunny costume from the Easter Friends stamp set, and the ribbon from the Easter Bunnies stamp set. I used Copic Markers in pastel colors for a soft look. Lastly, I adhered the images onto my card.

For the second card, I stenciled the front with the Easter Background stencil in the same inks I used above.   The shaker bits I used are Sugar & Spice Clay Confetti, seed beads in Blue Sky and Azalea Pink. The adorable bunnies are from Bunny Friends.

I hope these card inspire you to create Easter cards for your friends and loved ones. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop

Hello friends! Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop and happy  9th birthday, PPP!  Today, I’m sharing a birthday card and a gift card holder that I made using dies and stencils from the new Birthday Release.  For my card, I started with an A2-sized white cardstock that I ink blended with Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide Ink. I sprayed some water for an oxidized effect and also splattered some white ink on it. I then took a scrap of white cardstock and used finger daubers to ink blend Distress Oxide Inks in rainbow colors. I used Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Lucky Clover, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet. I sprayed water, splattered white ink, and cut the rainbow colored panel with the WISH die. I also cut the flame from the Birthday Mug Addition Dies and ink blended it with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink.  Next, I stamped the sentiments with black ink then foam mounted WISH and the flame on the card panel. I also added some pearls for inter

Hello friends! Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop! For my card, I started with a 4.5” square white cardstock and I ink blended through the Layered Carrots Stencil with Distress Oxide Inks.  Layer A: Dried Marigold Layer B: Spiced Marmalade Layer C: Twisted Citron I then matted this stenciled panel on a 5” square cardstock that I ink blended with Spiced Marmalade. For added interest, I sprayed this larger panel with water that has a bit of white ink.  Next, I cut the dies from the Winter Mug Dies and the new Easter Mug Additions Dies in white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers and Distress Oxide Inks. The blue bunny mug also got a print from the Mini Grid Stencil . Before foam mounting the mug, I placed a sheet of vellum to soften the carrot background and I also stamped the sentiment onto the vellum with Stazon ink.  Here are the Copic markers I used for the mini eggs: BG70, R00, V000, Y11, YG61, YR000 I embellished the card with Pi
