"Hello Friend" shaker card (Glue Dots and Pretty Pink Posh blog hop)


A very big crafty hello and welcome to our very special blog hop collaboration with Pretty Pink Posh & Glue Dots! 

We are going to bring you a fun blog hop where there are PRIZES from both companies up for grabs, along with inspiration and videos. The crafters involved in this hop are going to bring you an array of projects, coloring inspiration and a variety of ways to have fun with both Pretty Pink Posh & Glue Dots collectively. 

We have a super talented line up ahead....

Here's my contribution to the bloghop....




“Hello Friend” card
Time: 45 minutes
Level: Intermediate

Notes: The inspiration for this card came from the sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. I even used the color scheme from the pack to pick the inks that I would use for the butterflies. I also love how Glue Dots® makes it easy for me to add little items like the shaker pouch and the letters on my card without any mess.

        Cardstock- Earth Tone Cardstock Pack, The Paper Studio
        Sequins- Nature Mix, Pretty Pink Posh

        Pop Up, Glue Dots®
        Stamp- Butterfly friends, Pretty Pink Posh

I love your card and am fascinated with the Glue Dots. I was not familiar with this brand prior to this hop but.... How cool are these products! Glue Dots for sequins, yes I'm a happy camper right now lol. I also like the way you made the pouch for your shaker, I am definitely switching to your way instead of the foam tape way I've been doing. THANK YOU for sharing your card and all the inspiration. I'm so glad to find your blog and YouTube! (mardy14@bellsouth.net)
