Top Dog Dies Shaker Blog Hop

Friday, May 15, 2015

Hello and welcome to the Top Dog Dies Shaker Blog Hop! If you are hopping in order, then you should have arrived here from Kymona's blog. If you'd like to start at the beginning, see the full hop list below.






I used one of my favorite TDD dies, Cross Die Set. I just had to include the beautiful intricate cross too, so I layered a gold foiled die cut over a silver foiled die cut. I included gold and silver sequins, and some pearly white seed beads for the "Shake, Shake, Shake" part ;)




It's pretty difficult to photograph foil cardstock, so I think this flat shot is closest to the true colors. Very clean, elegant, and the cross really pops through that window! I sure wish you could all see it IRL!!

I hope you enjoyed my Shaker Card. Your next stop on the hop is the super cool and talented, Jeanne Jachna! Make sure to visit her and leave her some love ;) 

To add extra fun to our blog hop…TDD is offering up a prize! Three winners will receive the New Top Dog Dies Hot Air Balloon Die Set. For your chance to win, enter your email address below by 5/20/15. Winners will be posted on the Top Dog Dies blog after 5/20/15.

Here’s how it works…
Visit each blog on the hop in order, check out the shaker projects and leave your comments. Don’t forget to enter to win.

Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge

Saturday, April 25, 2015



Hello! I have a very feminine card to share with you today for the PTI Blog Hop. I LOVE the inspiration photo this month!! The color combination is so striking, and I love all the different textures as well. I also am a big fan of stripes combined with florals, so I knew I had to use that in my card.




I used Background Basics: Super stripes to make the angled stripes in the background. I made sure to use the same angle as the birthday sentiment. The main flowers are popped up with foam tape, and a few sequins give it a special, shiny touch!

Thanks for visiting! Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Supplies: 
Stamps: PTI - Ruby Rose, Background Basics: Super Stripes
Cardstock: PTI - White; Stampin' Up! - Night of Navy
Dies: PTI - Ruby Rose
Ink: PTI - Hibiscus Burst; Stampin' Up! - Night of Navy, Pretty in Pink; Tim Holtz Distress - Mowed Lawn
Other: Sequins, Foam Tape
