Text Block: Birthday die

Hello there! Today I’m sharing a few projects featuring the Text Block: Birthday die by Papertrey Ink. This awesome new die was designed by Lizzie Jones, and will be available for purchase on the 15th.PTI~Text Block: Birthday dieFor my first project, I created a shaker card. I think you all know how I feel about shakers, don’t you:) They make the world go ’round.  I went over the white cardstock with my Wink of Stella glitter pen. I colored that puppy while watching the opening ceremonies for the Olympics. Every time I’d get really involved into my coloring, one of my kids would yell at me, “Mom, you’re missing the whole thing!” Um, the ceremony went on for ever, but I did enjoy seeing all of the athletes in their coordinating outfits and beaming faces.

I also die cut a few vellum hearts using the cover plate: hearts die, and a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins. Paulina’s sparkling clear sequins have become my fave. They really do sparkle.
