Pin It



HELLO!!
I wanted to stop in and share a few cards I have been creating for the Winnie & Walter 1st Birthday Bash Celebration!! =) I'm actually NEW to them, but I had purchased 2 of their Bold Sentiment Stamp Sets during the Holiday Sales so when I saw the FUN Challenges they were having I just KNEW I had to try and play along!! For my First Card I have made a Shaker Card for the Shaker Card Challenge with Julie!! I used my Peerless Water Colors to water color this BEAUTIFUL Background!! Then I die cut the Cross Stitched Heart Die from Memory Box and die cut a small heart Window in the top left side for a shaker window!! =) EEKKKK!! I just LOVE the way it turned out!! I stamped my Sentiment using Versa-Fine Black Onyx Ink and then used Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder to Emboss it!! I used the W&W The Big, the Bold, and the Happy Stamp Set!!
The Big, the Bold, and the Happy
I added some of my Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Sequins and a few Clear Seed Beads from Prima to my small window that I covered with acetate and then added foam tape too!! Then I added more foam tape all over the back of my heart and added it to my car base!!


THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!

HELLO!!
I wanted to stop in and share a few cards I have been creating for the Winnie & Walter 1st Birthday Bash Celebration!! =) I'm actually NEW to them, but I had purchased 2 of their Bold Sentiment Stamp Sets during the Holiday Sales so when I saw the FUN Challenges they were having I just KNEW I had to try and play along!! For my First Card I have made a Shaker Card for the One Challenge with Shay!! I decided it would FUN to step out of my comfort zone and try to just create an ALL WHITE Card!! I've seen these done and I LOVE the look, but have NEVER created one!! =)
I started by die cutting a Stitched Circle from MFT!! =)  I stamped my Sentiment using Versa-Fine Black Onyx Ink and then used Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder to Emboss it!! I used the W&W The Big, the Bold, and the You Stamp Set!! 
The Big, the Bold and You
I'm NOT usually one for a CLEAN and SIMPLE design!! Although, something about these AMAZING stamps make it SO EASY!! EEKKKK!! I just LOVE the way it turned out!! Then I added foam tape to my Stitched Circle and added it to my card base!!




THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!

Pin It

SFYTT20_Jan15
HELLO!!
I'm stopping in to share the SWEET Valentine's Day Shaker Card I've made for the Reverse Confetti #20 Sketch For You To Try Challenge over on the Reverse Confetti Blog!!
I LOVED this Sketch and KNEW I just had to use the NEW Puppy Love Stamp Set and coordinating Puppy Love Confetti Die Set and the New Big Chevron Pretty Panels Confetti Die!! I also used the Scalloped Rectangle Die from the Love Note Die Set and the Class Act Confetti Die Set to die cut my Acetate Piece for my Shaker Frame!! I just LOVE how it turned out!! After Stamping and Die Cutting all of my Images, I used my Distress Markers in Pumice Stone, Weathered Wood and Black Soot to Water Color my Puppy Images!! I layered the colors and then added some highlights and I really LOVE the way they turned out!! I used some Stampin' Up Sequins with a Mix of Heart Metallic and Cupped Metallic and then a FUN Grey Iridescent 3mm Sequin from my stash for the inside of the shaker and for the front of my card!! =)  The Mini 3mm Wiggly Eyes just add that EXTRA touch of HAPPY and then I stamped and Fussy cut the Bows from Patterned Paper from Carta Bella and just glued down the centers of the Bows for a FUN 3-D look!! I colored the Girl Puppies Bow and both of their noses with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker for a SWEET Shine and then added some Highlight Dots with a White Gel Pen!! I added a Pink Embossed Heart on the Food Bowl too, using the Small Stamp Cluster just selective inking so I could have just the one centered!! I REALLY LOVE the way it turned out!! =)





I just LOVE to make Shaker Cards and the Little Pretty Panels Confetti Dies are SO PERFECT for making them!! =) I can't wait to play with them some more to see what else I can create!! =)
I hope you'll go and check out the rest of the AMAZING Inspiration that is being shared for this challenge!! =)
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a Fabulous Week!!

HELLO!!
I wanted to share some of the SWEET Valentine's Day Projects I've been creating using some of my NEW Simon Says Stamp Products!! I just LOVE so MANY of them, but I had to just pick a few and I thought it would be FUN to show how AWESOME the Gum Ball Shaker Die Set from the Shake It Up Release is to use!!  I just LOVE it!!

Simon Says Stamp SWEETHEART TAG Craft Die s255 DieCember     Simon Says Clear Stamps ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU sss101382
I also used the NEW Sweet Heart Tag Die to die cut the FUN Heart Gum Ball Pieces for my Shakers!! I thought it would be NEAT to have the different sizes and then I also did the different colors to make it even more SPECIAL!! My sentiments are from two different SSS Stamp Sets
Favorite Flowers and Only Have Eyes for You!! I used some Gold Foil Paper and some My Mind's Eye Gold Glitter Paper to die cut some of the pieces!! I have been HOARDING the Crate Paper Open Book Dictionary Gold Foiled Vellum and I thought it would make the PERFECT background for my Card!! I also mixed things up alittle to show that you can use the dies to create different Gum Ball Machines!! Just because it is made for a certain design doesn't mean that you CAN'T SHAKE IT UP and make it your own!! I can't wait to try a couple other ideas that I have in my head for this!! =)
I also created a Beautiful Tag with the die the way it was intended to be used!! Then I thought OMG!! With the Frame that it has around it I could turn it into a Shaker Tag too!! So I did and I just LOVE how it turned out!! How FUN to be able to add a Shaker Tag to any Gift for EXTRA FUN!!??  =)
