Shaking things up!

Hey everyone, it’s Amy!  I’m back with a fun shaker card project that features the Coolest Ever stamp set and sequins from Spiegelmom Scraps!

I’ve been on an aqua and peach kick.  I think it screams spring/summer, how about you?  I started off with a panel just a bit smaller than an A2 card front.  I die cut a heart and backed it with acetate.  I prepped the panel for my shaker card and then went to work with the stamped images.

I stamped them out with alcohol friendly black ink and colored them with markers.  I used the coordinating Coolest Ever Dies.

I popped my heart panel in my Mini MISTI and stamped out the sentiment.  I arranged my Spiegelmom Scraps sequins from their Sunny Winter collection.   I finished putting together my main panel and topped off my card with the trio of treats!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you have an awesome week!

Bday Bash Shaker Birthday Card

Hi everyone, Laurel here again.  I don’t know about you, but the funny thing is… I hardly ever make birthday cards! I go in spurts, but for the most part they are not ones I usually make.

I do like to give birthday cards to the students in my class (I teach grade one), thus I am working on building my stash… the Pattern Happy stamps and papers are so perfect for kids birthday cards!

I am sharing a girl themed card – little girls often like pink, purple and sparkly.  So what little girl would love this card, complete with shaker – which I seem to be on a kick of lately too 😉

I kept it pretty simple really – have you seen how 6 or 7 year olds put things into their backpacks? LOL

I used a mixture of papers from the Geofetti, Rainbows and Color Me papers – love how they are so easy to mix and match.

I die cut the birthday using the Birthday Word die then stapled it on.

I paper pieced the cupcake from the Bday Bash stamp set and mounted it on foam squares.   Finally, I die cut a sentiment from the set using the Mini Containers.

Thanks for visiting…. and oh… if you like the sketch of this card… check out my Sketchy Saturday post… come play along!

 

 

A couple of bright happy cards

Hi everyone, Laurel here today with a couple of fun cards.  I run a sketch challenge on my blog every Saturday and both of these cards are different takes on this week’s sketch.  Hop on over to my blog to see the sketch.

First off, with all the rain we have been having this spring… I just had to play with the Rainbows paper pad  , Colorful Day stamp set and Colorful Day Die.

I made the clouds into shakers which is easy when you use Adhesive Foam sheets and die cut the shape with that.

I then went for a different look.  I used the black confetti paper from the Geofetti  collection and went with a birthday card.   I then added a strip of grid paper from the Color Me Happy collection.

I seem to be on a shaker card kick as of late…. I think it is my ever growing supply of sequins and my barely ever using them that is making me do it.

Anyways the paper in the Rainbows collection worked well for lemons don’t you think?  I then stamped one of them with the Bday Bash stamp set.

That’s it for me today. Thanks for stopping by. If you want to see the sketch, head on over to my blog.
