Hello! Welcome back to another Throwback Thursday! This feature gives me a chance to revisit some of the first dies Pretty Pink Posh released. This month, I’m sharing a card using the first Pretty Pink Posh die that was released……Stitched Duo 1. This die led the way for other very popular dies including Stitched Duo 2 and Stitched Duo 3.
I tried really hard to come up with a “new” use for this die but I kept coming back to a traditional shaker card. Stitched Duo 1 is the PERFECT die set for a cute “window” shaker. Let’s see……..
I started with blending Tumbled Glass Distress Ink with a sponge applicator onto a top folding notecard. I blended ink until I had the look and darkness I wanted. Because I wanted a finished edge, I then trimmed my notecard just a bit on either side to get rid of the dark blending on the edges. My balloon is from Darling Friends, the exclusive set PPP designed for Simon Says Stamp, was colored with Copics and the tiny bunny was added with foam adhesive. Oh…..can’t forget to embellish with Sparkling Clear 4mm Sequins!
Now, for the shaker! I started with 2 die cut tags……1 left as a tag and the other diecut with the “windows”. To the tag, I blended more Tumbled Glass Distress Ink until it matched my notecard. This becomes the “backer” for my shaker as I adhered foam adhesive to encase my Iridescent Star Confetti. After stamping my sentiment to the “window” tag, I added it to my shaker by simply lining it up with the backer. Now my shaker can be added anywhere to my card! I love creating shaker cards using this technique as I can play around with my layout more.
My card was assembled and for some finishing last touches, I added the clouds from the Rainy Days coordinating dies with 4mm and 6mm Sparkling Clear Sequins.
Be sure to join us tomorrow as we’ll have a special video and post showing how to organize your sequins, plus, a giveaway!
Thanks for visiting the blog today! I hope that Amy’s adorable card inspired you to play with your old(er) die sets!
