Happy Day Birthday Shaker Card

Hello!  I’m stoping by to quickly share a card I made the other day.  I’ve used this Happy Day stamp set by Concord & 9th quite a few times in the past few months but each time – it turns out different, in all good ways!  In the past, I have embossed the image and watercolored, but I used Copic markers to color the image this time.

My friend, Missy loves GLITTER.  Every time she asks me to make a card, she wants me to use glitter – so you’ll probably recognize the glitter paper.  I’m also a huge fan of these stitched rectangle scallop frames from My Favorite Things.

Happy Day Birthday Shaker 3

The banner and sentiment is from the same stamp set – I love that you can customize the years.  I propped the frame up using foam adhesive and turned card into a shaker.  The pink in the background is subtle but it brings out the color of the cake as well.

I filled the shaker portion with lots of iridescent glitter, gold sequins, and some iridescent microbeads.  I haven’t made a shaker in a while so this was fun for me!  I’m working on a fairy card in a box for my next post.  I did all the coloring for it and plan on having a supply list and details.  I’ve shared a few of those cards in the past with very little instructions but I hope to share more next time.  Stay tuned!

XOXO,

Happy Snowman

WordPress reminded me today that my blog is 2 years old!  Happy Birthday, Blog!  It’s been a wonderful experience so far and I hope to be able to find more time to keep this up!

I simply cannot believe that Christmas is in a week! I probably wont get the chance to post anything before then, so I want to share my last Christmas project with you.  A friend reached out and asked me to make some cards for her.  She didn’t give me much – other than the fact that she loves glitter – so I decided to use the simple Happy Snowman stamp set by Pretty Pink Posh and cased this card from the PPP instagram that I follow.

I used the Puffy Clouds border by Lawn Fawn and added some silver and gold lining using embossing powder and stamped some snowflakes and embossed them in the same powder.

I used silver glitter on the blue cards and gold glitter on the green cards.

These cards were really fun and simple for me to make and these snowmen are so cute! I accented his buttons with some black Nuvo drops.  Hope you liked these – supplies are listed below.

Until next time – I hope everyone has a magical Christmas and stay safe wherever you are!

XOXO,

Spring/Easter Cards

So I didn’t win the MFT 2016 Card Design Superstar contest-but some truly amazing, deserving, talented people did!

Anyway – today I’m going to share a few more Splitcoaststampers cards I made from March for “The Little Things” theme.

The first card is a simple layered floral card that I stamped in white ink and colored over using Prismacolor colored pencils.  Not much to say about it!

I will list supplies below 🙂

My second card is a cute Easter shaker card using another stamp set by Lawn Fawn. I stamped and colored the images using copic markers and used some distress ink to add color to the top panel before adding my cut-outs.

The egg is on the inside of the card so the shaker portion is see-through through both top panels.

Phew! 3 months down and 3 more to go!  I hope you like these cards!

Adorable Elephant Shaker Card

Hi, Everyone!

I finally made a card. I’ve been making tons of excuses lately but mostly, it’s because I don’t want to make the time and because I feel discouraged and am selling myself short. People can be really mean on YouTube (and everywhere else).

I’ve been buying a lot of cute stuff and I only got the motivation to make this card because it’s a neighbor’s birthday – Happy Birthday, Davia!

Adorable Elephants 2

This My Favorite Things stamp set is adorable (appropriately called Adorable Elephants), but I wanted to make it a shaker card, so the heart die is from Lawn Fawn.  Today is MFT’s January release – they have a new heart STAX die set now!

Adorable Elephants 1

The background is created using distress ink.  I colored the elephant using copics and the butterflies using Stampin’ Write markers. It was a very simple card.

The shaker portion is non bulk and does not use any foam so the sequins don’t float around too freely – which is ok because I like for the areas hold the sequins in place.

Adorable Elephants

I made a video but I have to warn you that the lighting is terrible! My sweet husband got me some new lamps and the bulbs need to be replaced. He even installed a can light overhead and we’re waiting on the bulbs for that. I’m sure that will earn me some negative feedback on YouTube.  I hope you like the card!

If you’d like to watch, here’s the video:

Who is ready for Valentine’s Day?!?!  While I know I don’t get out much, I know that as soon as Christmas was over, the stores started putting out Valentine’s Day stuff. It’s coming! I had ideas about making the kids stuff for class, but I don’t know that spending hours stamping and making personalized notes is worth it when they just get thrown in the trash when the day is over. That’s a lot of work! Anyway, I’ve been wanting to play with this branch stamp that came with one of my alphabet sets – it’s so fitting for a branch of hanging hearts.  I hand-drew the vines so it’s nothing too exciting, but the other stamps and sentiment is from the kit You Plus Me. AHH – Twitterpated?!?! Who thinks of Thumper from Bambi when you hear this word?

I’ve been wanting to make a “shaker” card, so I tested out a small one in this card – the background is stamped with a stamp from a kit called A Round Array. It says “Be Mine.” 😀 I cut out the opening with a heart die, used some Stampin’ Up Shaker Frame foams to add some dimension, punched out some confetti hearts and adhered the background stamp.

Stay tuned for more Valentine’s Day cards! My 5 year old says “Oooh…it’s beautiful!” which I expected because he loves hearts, but it warms my heart to hear him say it..
