Sequin Shaker Blog Hop!

I have been so excited about this blog hop since Paulina announced it. If you have been around my blog for a while, then you know I made my very first shaker card EVER about 6 weeks ago. Thanks to the lovely sequins from the Pretty Pink Posh shoppe (and now available at a bunch of other online stores...yipppee!!) I have been hooked. They are so fun to make and even more fun to give away. Who doesn't LOVE an interactive card??

I decided to use some of the awesome stitched dies from Lil' Inker Designs. LOVE them. I used the cool, Anytime Tag Die set for my shaker frame. 



Creating a shaker element in any size and shape is easy if you have some nesting dies. Simply start by cutting the largest size you want, then pink a smaller one, line it up in the middle of your first cut piece and run it through your die cut machine again. This will create the frame for your shaker. Paulina did a great How-to video here. Check it out. 


I created a Bokeh effect in the background with the solid circle stamp from Spot On stamp set and a pencil eraser. The sentiment was stamped in Grout Gray ink and it's from the Stay Beautiful stamp set. Once I had all the stamping done and pieced together my frame elements, I filled up my shaker with LOTS of pretty sequins from the Pretty Pink Posh store. I used: Fresh Mint, Aquamarine, Lemon Meringue, Pink Peonies.  


I prettied up my shaker frame with a custom flower. I used an unexpected die for my bloom, can you tell? It's the small stitched sun by Lil' Inker Designs. I cut two and layered them together, topping it with a pretty soft yellow button. The leaves are from the MFT Blueprints 14 Die-namcis. 
I will send you on your way. There is so much more to see. Please see all those that are hopping along in the link up on Paulina's blog.

  32. Really amazing! And we wouldn't have heard about it, had you not posted this for all of us to see. Thanks for the heads up in your blog. A pretty fine reminder why these blogs are such an asset, either to people looking for new stuff, or those who are looking to distribute useful information.
