Enjoy the Beach Life

Hi Everyone! I grew up near the beach, and here in Albuquerque? Well no beach. At least not really.But I can dream, can't I? So today I am bringing this fun beachy shaker card to you! And what better way to show you how amazing the new She Sells Seashells Sparkle Blend. I used a stamp set from Hero Arts with inks from Catherine Pooler to create my ocean and a cloud stencil from MFT Stamps with my Ink Blending Brushes and Distress Oxide Inks to create my cloudy sky. I then used a basic square nesting die set from Stamps Of Life to cut the opening in my card front. I then used some Scor-Tape to adhere my acetate to the back of the square and then foam tape to create my shaker element. My sentiment was also stamped using Catherine Pooler Ink and was from the same Hero Arts Stamp Set. I really love how this came out!

I'll Stand By You

Hi Everyone! Today I am bringing you this super cute Flamingo card. To begin with I have used Classic Crest Solar White 110 pound cardstock for my card base. I then cut from Classic Crest Solar White 80 pound cardstock my panel which I did originally cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. I will make this layer smaller later on. Using my Misti, I then used a stamp set by Catherine Pooler called Stand Tall to stamp all the elements for this card. I stamped the sentiment as well as the two flamingos in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then used Catherine Pooler Lime Rickey and Fiesta Blue to stamp my greenery and my water.
Next I did some really quick and easy coloring using Copics RV17, RV55 and RV52 to color my two flamingos.
I then grabbed a set of layering dies from The Stamp Doctor called A2 Card Layers #2. I then used three of these layering dies to cut don the piece with my stamping as well as a layer in Pop Tone Black Licorice Card Stock and another layer in Pop Tone Razzleberry Card Stock. I used Scor Tape to adhere the layers as well as adhere the panel to the card base.

I really love how this turned out. I do hope you like this project and as always, I can't wait to see what you create!

Let's Celebrate!

Hi Everyone! Today I am playing with one of the new Sparkle Blends called Stars and Stripes. I love all the fabulous elements that are in this blend. It is not only stars in red, white, and blue, but also these amazing hearts, polka dot sequins, and swirly sequins are just so much fun to play with.
I decided to create a full panel shaker for this project. It really gives a lot of room for all the fabulous shaker pieces to move around. I also used a paper pad from Doodlebug called Yankee Doodle, which coordinated perfectly with this Sparkle Blend. I also used a wonderful sentiment die called Lets Celebrate from Simon Says. There are so many ways you can use this sentiment, especially since it has the shadow layer. And of course I have used Scor Tape to adhere it all together. This is such a fun and easy project to make! I really love how this turned out!

A Patriotic Panda? Yes Please!

Hi Everyone! Today I am bringing you this super fun and easy Patriotic Panda!So let's get started! To begin with I have used Classic Crest Solar White 110 pound cardstock for my card base. For this project I used a die from Waffle Flower Stamps called Sunshine Panel Die. I cut this from Pop Tone Wild Cherry Cardstock. I then used a Doodlebug Paper Pad called Yankee Doodle for the star layer behind the Sunshine Panel. I used Scor Tape to adhere the layers as well as adhere the panel to the card base.
I used Pop Tone Black Licorice Card Stock and Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock to create my panda.  I used an adorable die from Waffle Flower Stamps called Be A Panda and my die cut machine to cut one in white and one in black. I then paper pieced the black parts on to the white base and adhered using Scor Tape.
And then for a bit of fun I used Be Accersories Die Set which is also from Waffle Flower to add the shades, bow tie and tophat as well as the coffee cup. These are also cut from the same Doodlebug paper pad. And then for a final touch, a little bit of R20 Copic coloring for the pink part of the ears. And there you have a patriotic panda!

Hang In There With Sparkle Blends!

Hi Everyone! Do you love pandas as much as I do? Then this new sequin mix called You're Pand-tastic is for you! And this time I did a little something different. Check it out!
So I decided to create a full panel shaker. This project uses no foam tape so for mailing it does have a slimmer profile. I started with a cloud stencil from C C Designs called, Cloud Stencil. I used Catherine Pooler Fiesta Blue Ink with my blending brushes to create the sky. Next I used a Die-namics Die from My Favorite Things called Scenic Safari. What I did was use this die to cut a sheet of paper to create a stencil for my grass layers. Then using Catherine Pooler Lime Rickey Ink and my blending brush I created the grassy part of the background. Then I used a stamp set from Whimsy Stamps called Panda Butt, and the matching die set which is also the same name for my trees, panda, and sentiment. For the trees and sentiment I stamped with Catherine Pooler Eucalyptus, Lime Rickey and Garden Party, and used Copics R20, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9 and 100. I also used green metallic cardstock with an embossing folder from Darice called Vine Background.
Now here is the fun part. I cut my layer of acetate so that it was an inch larger in both directions than the panel with the scene. I then scored it to be the same size as the panel. I then used Scor Tape on the back of the panel and peeled the of the side of tape, adhering the acetate to the panel on three sides. I then added my shaker mix and sealed the last side. I then attached this layer to the metallic green layer and finally attached the whole thing to the card base. I really adore how this came out, and check out all the fun elements in this mix, like those cute panda faces!!!!!

Remember The 80's?

Hi Everyone! Do the 80's feel like just yesterday for you? For me they certainly do, and this new blend called I Love The 80's really captures all that 80's spirit! So check out my project for today.
The first thing I thought of when I saw this blend was roller skating in the 80's and a few months ago Catherine Pooler had come out with these fun stamps that I thought was just perfect. So I stamped my background using At The Rink background stamp using my Wow Embossing Pad and used Nuvo Fine Detail Embossing powder in Glacier White. I then used blending brushes to apply my Catherine Pooler inks to create my fun skate background layer. I then used a Lawn Fawn layering die to create the white frame. I then used scor-tape to attach a layer of acetate to the back of the frame. Next I used foam adhesive tape to create my shaker area. I then added I Love The 80's and sealed the shaker space. Next I stamped out and die cut the two pairs of roller skates that are from the Let The Good Times Roll stamp and Die sets, and added a little color with my Copics. I then added some stars from the sequin mix to my roller skates and adhered these to the frame. I then used a Happy Birthday sentiment and its matching shadow layer from Crafters Companion for my sentiment. I hen adhered the sentiment and there you have it!

Meow & Fur-Ever

Every once in a while you meet that Fur-Ever soul mate. In this case I think Newton certainly did! Check this out.
 Look how cute and cozy these two are. This is a super cute stamp set that you can find at Scrapsalot called Newtons Sweethearts. This is just one of the three images in this adorable set. I colored them up with copics and thought a shaker would be fun. I used a circle die from my stash to cut the base layer that had the colored up image. I then used some fun foam, acetate and Scor Tape to create my shaker. I filled it with Catherine Pooler Springfield Sequin Mix.
I then used pattern paper from Doodlebug Down on the Farm 6x6 paper pad, and Lawn Fawn layering dies to create my layers. And if you shake the card around it reveals the fabulous sentiment!
Scrapsalot carries most of these amazing products in the store!

Congratulations

Hi Everyone! Today I am playing with Double Or Nothing Sparkle Blends! And this project is so perfect for right now! This is great for Grads or wishing someone luck on a new adventure. So have a look at today's project.


This Sparkle Blend is such a fun blend that has even dice and playing cards in addition to so many fun shapes and sizes of red, white and black sparkly sequins and beads. I used a Congratulations Die that also has a shadow layer as well as a fun nested frame set, both from Crafters Companion as well as an older fun alpha numeric die set from Craftin Desert Divas for my number seven. I wanted a certain shade of red and a certain shade of yellow so I used my copics to create the red and yellow paper layers. Additionally I used solid white cardstock, black cardstock, blue cardstock and a holographic piece of cardstock from a 6x6 DCWV Cardstock Stack. I love how this has a slot machine, Vegas feel to it. I really love how this came together!
