Pretty Pink Posh | Starry Night Shaker Card. August Release Blog Hop (Day 2) + Giveaway

Hello everyone and thank you so much for joining us for Pretty Pink Posh August 2016 Release Blog Hop (Day 2) and giveaways (more about this below)!

In case you missed the Day 1 Blog Hop you can start at Vera Rhuhay’s blog.

I am very excited to see new goodies come to Pretty Pink Posh store – I’m loving their stamps, dies and sequin mixes! Today I’m sharing a card with an adorable Camping Friends stamp set and Stitched Hexagons die from the new release as well as Gold Star Confetti.

CARD DETAILS

I knew I wanted to create a little watercolor galaxy or night sky behind my little camping scene, so that’s where I started working on my card. I first heat embossed the moon and little solid stars in white embossing powder onto watercolor paper. Next I used several colors of Distress inks (I’m listing all colors below) and a water brush and added color around my images. I also added drops of water using Distress Sprayer and a bit of shimmer using Distress Mica Spray (unfortunately that shimmer doesn’t show on the photo).

I wanted to have more than just heat embossed stars so this is when I got the idea to turn this into a shaker. I die cut a hexagon-shaped opening in brown woodgrain cardstock panel, adhered a layer of clear acetate and used fun foam instead of regular foam adhesive to pop this panel up and create shaker walls. I wish I’d had fun foam in black, but the closest color I could find that would match to my watercolor sky was purple, so I used purple, you can spot a bit of purple on a few of the close up photos.

To fill the shaker I went with Gold Star Confetti to make it look like I had a bunch of falling stars on my card. The shaker window is rather large and I used about 1/3 of a pack of sequins to fill it so there’s quite lot of stars in there.

I also used Camping Friends stamp set to create a little scene for this project. I stamped several images in VersaFine Onyx Black ink onto watercolor paper, colored them with Distress ink and cut out using matching dies. I think this is a really fun stamp set especially for late Summer / early Fall. I used quite a bit of foam adhesive to foam mount these images and pop them up on my card (I love to have a lot of dimension on my projects).

Here’s a photo showing just how many stars I have in that shaker – enough to cover entire sky and wish for just about anything in life!
