Hello, crafty friends! Today’s project features the Pretty Pink Posh Fly Away Friends stamp set. I love hot air balloon images! I can still feel the excitement I had when this stamp set was released last year. I decided to make a fun shaker card today, so let’s begin!
First, I stamped the largest balloon and the two critters from the stamp set. These are the only images I used because I wanted the shaker elements to stand out and since my shaker today will be two white clouds, I had to keep it pretty simple not to overshadow this feature. I colored everything with Copic markers and fussy cut them (coordinating dies are available if you would rather not fussy cut, but I actually find it therapeutic). I set this aside to work on my background and shaker.
For the background, I used the Stitched Notes Dies to create the stitched rectangle. I used the Rainy Days coordinating dies for the clouds that will be my shaker windows. I position and die cut the clouds before I started ink blending Distress Inks in Milled Lavender, Shaded Lilac, Seedless Preserved and Dusty Concord. I couldn’t decide on my purples. Haha. I started with the dark colors, then lights and faded into white on top. Once this was completely dry, I stamped the sentiments in Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
I assembled my shaker with doubled up foam tape and filled the clouds with Pretty Pink Posh sequins: Iridescent Mini Star Confetti, ¼” Iridescent Star Confetti, Sparkling Clear Confetti Mix and 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins. I chose to fill them with a lot of fun clear and iridescent confetti and sequins to give the clouds shine!
I adhered the shaker onto a A2 top folding card base then adhered my stamped images. I finished with a few sequins that I used in the shaker and the card is done!
If you like the card I made today, Pretty Pink Posh is having a sale on this stamp set and it’s coordinating dies today!
Thank you for stopping by! I hope I inspired you to make something today!
