HELLO!!

W&W 4th Birthday Bash | Repetitive Stamping Challenge with Crystal , the W&W 4th Birthday Bash | Grid Challenge with Keren and the W&W 4th Birthday Bash | Use Your Scraps Challenge with Kelly!!  I wanted to create a FUN Card combining all of these challenges!!
I decided to start with a couple pieces from my Stash!! I had the Heart that I had Stamped and Embossed onto some Patterned Paper from Crate Paper!! This is my Grid Item, along with the Ticket that I also Stamped onto some Patterned Paper with some WoW Glitter Embossing Powder in Gold using The Write Stuff: Love Story!! I also had a Love Circle that I had Stamped and Embossed using WoW Embossing Powder in Rose Gold!! I needed to create a Card Base for my Scrap Pieces so decided to Die Cut the Scalloped Base using the Essentials: Noelle Cutaways Die Set!!
I then used some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to add some Color and some Water Splatters to add some Texture!! I Stamped and Embossed some of the arrow Images using Peacock Distress Ink in a Repetitive Design and then Embossed them with Clear Embossing Powder!! A few Gold Splatters and some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins finishes of the Card!! 

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it turned out and I hope you do too!! If you haven't played along yet, you still have some time to WIN!!

Pin It

challengeb

HELLO!!
I'm here to share the BEAUTIFUL Card I've made for the Winnie & Walter 4th Birthday Bash Shaker Challenge with Lea and the W&W 4th Birthday Bash | Comeback Challenge with Taheerah!! I wanted to create a FUN Shaker Card using several of my FAVORITE W&W Products and that CASES the BEAUTIFUL Card from Joni!!
Here's the Card from Joni I decided to CASE!!
You can find Joni's Original Post here to see how she created her BEAUTIFUL Card!!
I thought it would be FUN to turn this Design into a Shaker Card!! I also decided to switch it up by staying with a more Neutral Color pallet and adding the POP of color with the Sequins!!
I Started by Die Cutting the Base for my Shaker from Black Cardstock using the Essentials: Noelle Cutaways Die Set!! Then in order to create my Shaker I Stamped and Embossed the BEAUTIUL scrolled Frame from the The Write Stuff: Leave it to Mom Stamp Set!! I then used an exact-o knife to cut out the center of the Frame!! Then I Stamped and Embossed the Silhouette Image from the same Stamp Set onto some Embossable Widow Plastic!! I LOVE the way it looks in real life!! I used some of the Words form The Big, the Bold and You Stamp Set and Stamped them for the background of the Shaker Window using Grey Grout MFT Ink!! I then added some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink with a Foam Applicator!! Then added some Water Droplets for some Texture!! I added a mixture of Retired W&W Anniversary Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh!! I adhered the Window Panel and then added a Stamped and Embossed Ribbon also from the Leave it to Mom Stamp Set and colored it with Copic Markers!! A Small Banner was Stamped and Embossed with the Friend Sentiment onto Stone Grey Cardstock!! A few more Sequins finish of the Design and I adhered the Shaker onto an A2 Stone Grey Cardbase!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it turned out and I hope you do too!! If you haven't played along yet, you still have some time to WIN!!
