Happy Hump Day!! =)
I don't know about you, but ever since school started back up it seems like the days are just FLYING by!! I find myself with TONS of things I'd like to get done and it seems as though I keep running out of time to do them!! Anyone else feeling that way!!??
Well today I have a FUN Shaker Card I've made using the AWESOME Crafty Lady Stamp Set and the coordinating Crafty Lady Die Set for the Ellen Hutson August Pin-Sights Challenge!! I was Inspied by the Colors in the Challenge Photo and the Texture of the Raspberries in the Challenge Photo, so that's how I went about creating my Card for this Challenge!! I'm in LOVE with this set and ALL of the FUN Ways/Occasions that it can be used in/for!! I KNEW I wanted to make a Shaker instantly when I saw it!! If you KNOW me, you know Shakers are my HAPPY, and I thought it would be Neat to create one of those Shaker Find and Seek Cards!! My boys had a BLAST Finding all of the Different Crafty Goodies in my Shaker Card, and I'm SURE some of you have a/several Crafty Friend/s out there, that this idea might be something they'd have a FUN time with too!!?? lol!!
Lets get to my Card!!
Essentials by Ellen Stitches Cover Plate Die by Julie Ebersole onto a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Paper!! Then I've Die Cut the Essentials by Ellen Folk Heart Dies by Julie Ebersole in the Center of my Card Base for the Shaker Window!! I backed it with Acetate after I added some Tarnished Brass Distress Paint to the Panel and the Heart Die Cut that I inked with some Scattered Straw Distress Ink!! After the Paint was Dry I also added some Water Splatters to added even more texture!! I Stamped and Embossed all of my Images and used Copic Markers to Color them and Die Cut them out using the coordinating Dies!! I Stamped and Embossed the Crafty Ladies Outfit onto some Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow Patterned Paper and Watercolor Wishes Patterned Paper to Paper Piece my Crafty Ladies Outfit!! I wanted to add a SWEET Daisy Image to Dress up the Shirt and to add to her Hair and her Bag so I used the Images from the Essentials by Ellen Bear Ware Stamp Set by Julie Ebersole!! I used Copic Markers to add Shadows and then used some Tonic Studios Morning Dew Nuvo Drops, Nuvo Glitter Drops Sherbert Shimmer and Aqua Shimmer Pen for some Sparkle and Shine!! I added ALL of the Crafty Supply Images into my Shaker Window and then added some Pretty Pink Posh Sweet Pea Sequin Mix put together by my SWEET FRIEND Lisa Elton, some of the Iridescent Mini Hearts, and some of the 4mm Cupped Metallic Gold Sequins!! I used some 3M Foam Tape to Pop Up my Crafty Lady and her Bag and my Card was done!! SQUEAL!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it turned out!! =)
