A Happy Hello {Border Shaker}

Sunday, March 22, 2015

 
Hello!
Well the snow has mostly melted away and my cold is not far behind.  Thanks so much for all of your well wishes.  Sometimes a cold comes and goes without much trouble and then sometimes you get one that knocks you right down. 
 
 
Today I created this border shaker die.  Only the clear channel that you can see contains sequins.  I created the frame using the two largest SSS stitched rectangle dies.  Then I created the center panel using the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 2 die.   I used the circle die from that same PPP die set to create a mask.  Inside the circles I stamped a cluster of springtime images from 5 different PTI stamp sets and then removed the mask.  I chose inks for my images that coordinated with my PPP 4mm sequins.  The Lemon Meringue sequins were a great match for Harvest Gold ink, the Lime Sorbet sequins matched Spring Moss ink, and the Pink Blush sequins were a great match for Sweet Blush ink.  I threw in a few Marshmallow and Metallic Silver sequins for some added shine.
 
 
I used the same 3 inks to sponge some color onto this adorable Avery Elle 'hello' die cut.
 
 
Thanks for visiting!
