PTI March 2013 Blog Hop: Sequins


Our challenge this month was to use sequins.

Yes, I really do know someone celebrating her 91st birthday this month. Started with a Rose Red card base, rounded one corner and added a strip of paper from LilyBee Designs. Added sequins that are very close in color to PTI's Hawaiian Shores. The "happy" die cut from Aqua Mist is stamped using Hawaiian Shores and backed with a second die cut from SU Going Gray to create a shadow. After die cutting the "91" from By The Numbers and "st" from the Block Alphabet Dies using SU Pretty in Pink cardstock, I ran them through my BigShot using a Sizzix Swiss Dots embossing folder and sponged some ink on them. I popped these up using SU's dimensionals. To finish it off with some added bling, I misted the card with Shimmer Sparkle.

Supplies (all PTI unless noted): 
Stamp Sets: Pretty Peonies
Dies: By The Numbers Dies and Block Alphabet Dies
Cardstock: Aqua Mist, SU Rose Red, SU Pretty in Pink and Lily Bee Designs Head Over Heels
Ink: Hawaiian Shores
Other: Sequins from JoAnn's, Sizzix Swiss Dots EF, Shimmer Sparkle & Sponge Daubers, Corner Rounder
