Sequin Shaker Blog Hop - Pretty Pink Posh

There are some types of cards that I've been afraid to try. Shaker cards are not one of them!! Check out the how-to video Paulina has on her blog if you're a bit intimidated, and you'll see just how easy shaker cards are to make! And hey, if I can do it, anybody can, lol!! Scoot on over to Pretty Pink Posh, and see the amazing creations already up, check out the sponsors, and leave a little love for the sweet and generous Miss Paulina! This is going to be one fun hop!

Naturally I have a card...





This went together fairly quickly, and without too many glitches. Only wish it would have photographed a little better; the colors are sooo much more rich irl! A Neenah white base, and all the rest of the papers are from my scrap boxes. Various sequins, a portion of an acetate sheet, a bit of twine from the Twinery, Clear and Simple Stamps for the sentiment, and some pink Versa Color ink. I cut the bubble gum machine out using my Cameo. The blue and the pink panels were cut with MME dies. And that's it. So go do some happy dances, and head on over to Pretty Pink Posh!

How cute and appropriate to make a gumball shaker. I'm still a little hesitant to try it. Maybe I'll stick to stenciling and you can have the shakers. ;)

I am so thrilled to see this. I stood in front of a gumball machine Sizzix die at Hobby Lobby for the longest time on Friday trying to talk myself into getting it for this blog hop. I didn't. But now that I've seen how perfect a gumball machine is for a sequin shaker - guess what I'm going to get??!!

I love your colors - old-fashioned, ice cream and candy shoppe happiness!
