New Pretty Pink Posh store

Paulina has opened her new Pretty Pink Posh store!
In honour of this occasion, she's asked her DT to share a project using 
"lots of Pretty Pink Posh." LOL!

Well, I ended up making two projects, since my first one had some Pretty Pink Posh on it,
but not enough to be considered "lots."

So, I made a second card, using some Woodlands Mix sequins
and some Espresso sequins.
Here it is: 

To make my card, I die cut PTI's Mighty Oak cover plate from 
some Simon Says Stamp woodgrain card stock.
Then, I ran the cover plate through my big shot with a piece of white card stock with my
embossing pads, so I impressed the image onto the card stock.
I added some adhesive and started glueing down the sequins.
I'm not going to lie.... this took a long time!
I cut a strip of vellum and heat embossed my sentiment (from Wplus9's feather set).
I adhered the woodgrain card stock over the sequins using some dimensional adhesive.

Here's a close up of the sentiment:

I love how it shimmers in the sunlight!

And here is my other card, the first one I made, which doesn't have as
much Pretty Pink Posh, but I still really like it.

which was to use this photo as inspiration.

I loved the soft butterflies on the wall!
However, for my card, I decided to use some of my feather stamp sets instead.

I started with a soft stone background and stamped my feathers 
(using WMS's Fine Feathers & Papertrey Ink's new Feather Finery stamp sets.)
I added the sentiment from the WMS set and the stamped circles from the PTI set.
Then I added a trio of Sand sequins to finish it off.

Well, that's it for me, today.

Tracey McNeely said...

Love your projects today Leigh. That sequin tree is absolutely amazing!

Lindsey said...

Wow! I cannot even imagine the time it took for you to create your first is truly amazing! And your second card is so soft and dreamy and perfect. (PS When I saw PTI's feather set during the last release I just *knew* it would make its way to your crafty hands. :) )

Karen C. said...

You are the master of patterned paper, so at first glance I thought you had die cut papers for your tree ... then I read your post and realized you hand glued each of those gorgeous sequins. WOW!! Just amazing. Love your feather card too - the colour scheme is very soft and pretty - great inspiration!!

ferrellm said...

Megan Carroll said...

Cheryl B. aka slibby said...

Leigh, that sequin Mighty Oak tree is super duper fantastic. Love the idea and the concept. hats off to you!!

Kathryn A said... a LOT of sequins! I admire your patience! I'll bet it really sparkles in real life! I really love your feather card, too. The soft colours of the feathers, together with the wonderful WMS sentiment, are perfect! (And this combo is exactly why I ordered PTI's feather set, which just arrived yesterday!)

robinann17 said...

I agree with everyone - both of your cards are so beautiful! The tree is FAB.U.LOUS and the second card is so gentle and soft - stunning work! Did you cut the sequins after gluing them? Just wondering how you did this work so perfectly????

Jennifer said...

OMG what a gorgeous tree! I can't believe you glue each one of those sequins! Totally awesome! Your second card is SO dreamy and gorgeous. Love, love, love!

cm said...

Wow, Leigh, these are two fabulous cards to showcase "lots" of pretty sequins, and especially, your amazing creativity! I'll second all the other comments: amazing, inspiring, beautiful!

Taheerah said...

That first card is a complete knock-out Leigh - wow!! Such a great use for all those sequins - totally worth the time you must have invested to create this effect!! I *love* the soft, dreamy look of your second card, matches the softness of the room so well. I was so happy and honoured to see you playing along with my challenge!! Thanks so much for playing to Cure The Monday Blues!

Ummmm! I do think the gorgeous tree qualifies as lots of Pretty Pink Posh. Jaw dropping. but . . . I love the other one too.
