For as long as I have been making cards I’ve never made a shaker card.  Today I thought I would give it a try.  It was so easy it has me wondering why I never attempted it before.

The base is Smoky Slate.  I cut a piece of Blueberry Bushel to measure 4″ x 5 1/4″.  That piece was run through the Big Shot with  one of the large rectangles from Rectangle Stitched Framelits.  Using the Simple Stripes Embossing folder I ran it through the Big Shot again.

Two pieces of Window Sheet were cut to 3 3/4 ” x 4 3/4″.  I attached one of those with Tear & Tape and surrounded it with Foam Adhesive Strips.  Added the sequins and adhered the second piece of Window Sheet.  A little note: polish the window sheet with a dry paper towel to remove any finger prints.  Before adding it to the base of Smoky Slate with dimensionals I stamped one the balloons from Balloon Celebrations in both Smoky Slate and Blueberry Bushel.

Once that was all put together I die cut the Happy Birthday Thinlit using Blueberry Bushel DSP.  This was adhered to the front using little dots of Multi Purpose Glue.

It’s quite stricking in real life and the sound is makes when shook can be a little too much entertaining.

Until Next Time !!

That heavy cardboard that comes with some of our Designer Paper is a must keep !!  I’ve been saving quite a few (ha ha, more like a truck load) and came up with this little idea.

I cut the cardboard in four quarters giving me 4 pieces.  It is a little hard to cut since it is so thick.  I covered both sides with Designer Paper then sponged corresponding colors around the edges to give it a nice finish.

The white paper is plain photocopy paper.  I stamped the first sheet with images from Colorful Season.  All the other sheets were stamped with Just a Note from Home to Roost.  A Gold Library Clip was used to attached about 30 sheets.  It’s about all it can hold.  A small pen was added as a feature selling point. By the way, the color of the pen is the color of the ink. I’m selling these starting this Saturday at the Spruce Grove Farmers Market from 9:30 to 1:30PM.   Located at 120 Railway Avenue.  I’ve also been working on some Easter projects that I will feature next week.

Until Next Time !!

The Copper Tea Tins are so easy to emboss on or add vinyl stickers. I am super thrilled on how these turned out.

I made 4 all a little different. Prior to embossing I rubbed the tins with the Embossing Buddy to ensure that there would be no little “runaways” of copper embossing powder.

Would love to hear what you think ! Click on the photos to enlarge.

While blog surfing this morning I came across a “new to me” card layout so I thought I would give it a try for a manly card.

April 1

I started with a piece of Basic Black Cardstock measuring 5″x7″, scored in half on the 7″ side. To that, I added a piece of designer paper. Using the Layering Squares Framelits I made 3 layers using Basic Black, Basic Gray and Designer paper. When I attached this to the base I ensured the height was just enough to be able to fit it in a medium envelope.

The “you” is a die cut from the Well Written Framelits Dies and that was cut in Basic Black and Basic Gray. I adhered these two with the Fine Tip Glue Pen offsetting them a bit. Amazing was cut with Galvanized Cardstock and also adhered with the Fine Tip Glue Pen. The “ARE” was stamp in Memento Black from the Brushwork Alphabet stamp set.

What do you think? Is this something you would be willing to try?

Until Next Time !!

Paper, Paper and more Paper.  The number one comment I hear as a demonstrator is “I have so much paper I don’t want to get anymore”.  I can sure attest to that as I spent over 4 hours yesterday going thru all the Designer 12×12 paper I have while deciding what to keep.  I recently read a post that stated something like If it doesn’t bring you joy when you feel it get rid of it that inspired me to take another New Year Resolution off my list.  In future posts I will be using retired paper.  Hopefully it will bring you inspiration on what to do with yours.  On to today’s card !

I started with a base of Basic Gray.  I then made a frame using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  The foliage and sentiment dies come from Foliage Framelits Dies and the Floral Frames Stamp Set. Once I stamped the sentiment and ran it through the Big Shot I colored some of the leaves with the Tranquil Tide Stampin’ Write Marker. I attached this to the harlequin patterned paper with dimensionals.  The foliage was cut with Tranquil Tide and attached inside the frame.

Wouldn’t this perfect to give to the guy in your life starting a new job or moving into a new apartment?

As for the paper I don’t want to keep I will be selling it at markets/events that I will be attending for 25¢ for single sided and 50¢ for double sided.

My next event is at Marci’s Bar and Grill 102 Erie St S # 15, Devon, Alberta T9G 2J4.  Hope to see you there.   I will be auctioning off two items.
