Sugar Nellie ~ Hey Little Birdie

Happy late Tuesday :) I am off early tomorrow to help out with a school field trip so I thought I would post this tonight instead of tomorrow morning :)

I am so loving shaker cards these days. They are so much fun to make and they look stunning.  The base of the shaker is made using two sizes of stitched rectangle dies (mine are from Lawn Fawn)  I colored up a digital image from Funky Kits. They have so many sweet ones! This one is called Hey Little Birdie.

I wanted my card to feel like a fresh early Spring day. Sort of like the days we are having over here. Sunny but still a little nippy :) The image was colored with Copic markers and the background was sponged on with Distress inks. I think the sequins that create the shake portion of my shaker card look quite nice paired up with the image. I bought these sequins over at the local $ store. Quite the bargain :)

I have taken some photos at different angles and in different states of being shaken!

Tiddly Inks ~

Happy Monday evening! I know, I know. Two posts in one day. These things happen :) I had a lovely and productive time in my craft studio this weekend and the result is that I have many new projects to share with you :)

This adorable image is from Tiddly Inks and is called Annie. It is a digital image which is being offered as a freebie :)

I created a shaker card by using stitched rectangle dies (Lawn Fawn) to create the shaker portion. I adhered a piece of acetate from my stash and then filled the shaker with sequins that I purchased at the $ store.

The image is colored with Copic Markers and was printed on Neenah cardstock as well as on some regular printer paper that had a piece of Eclipse masking tape on it. I used this to create a mask so that I could create the background. I filmed a video late last year showing the process. You can see it here below or on my YouTube channel –> here to see it in HD. The only thing I did differently was to drop water from my paint brush over on top of the background to create water marks.

There is a DT call going on over at Tiddly Inks and as a big fan of these sweet images, I thought I would give it a go :)

Thanks for swinging by :)

You’ve Got Mail

Happy Monday! It has been a busy morning. I have 3 boys. They go to three different schools and they have each had a day off in the last week…..just not the same day! So, my post is a wee bit late today as I have spent this morning outfitting my oldest for his graduation! He looked very handsome and entirely too grown-up!

I fell totally in love with this cute image and knew I wanted to pair it up with this cute sentiment from PTI. I created a cute peek-a-boo card and kept it clean and simple :)

Dreams ~ Stamp and Create with Magnolia Challenge

Happy Friday! Hope you have some fun plans for the week-end and I hope they include some crafty time for you :) I have a new card to share with you today using Magnolia stamp’s Delightful Tilda.

The image is colored with Copic markers. Then I sponged on the clouds using a card-board cloud mask that I cut with my Silhouette SD and some Tumbled Glass Distress ink. I didn’t bother masking my image. I was just super careful when I was sponging. The sentiment is by MFT and was stamped with Black Onyx Versafine ink.

MFT ~ Cute Critters Set

Happy Thursday my lovelies! Phew! I don’t think it will ever slow down around here. School trips, after school events, hockey trials, music lessons, swimming lessons and if that wasn’t enough……emergency room visits. Everything is fine…..a badly sprained wrist versus a broken one. Thank Goodness!

Getting back to fun stuff :) I have a card to share with you using the adorable Cute Critters set from MFT that I picked up over at Scrapbook Centrale a couple of weeks ago. Too stinkin’ cute! I made a video showing you some coloration :) I also filmed the creation of this card, or so I thought. I had the recorder on pause, not record. Sorry about that.

I used a plain A2 sized card-base made with Neenah Solar Crest paper. The tag was made using the Lawn Fawn tag die and the papers were all left over bits and pieces from previous projects, probably not even from the same company, but they all mix and match together nicely. The sentiment comes from the same set as the image. Love it!

I am entering this in the current Cute Card Thursday Challenge: Clean and Simple

In this shot, you can see the shimmer from the Wink of Stella pens that I used.

Thanks for swinging by and I hope the coloration video helped. I turned the cute squirrel into a card too……stay tuned for that one!

Stamp and Create

Happy Monday everyone! Sorry for being MIA all week, I was working on a special quilty project during the week. I was bound and determined to get it done and I would have……if my sweet Pacesetter hadn’t broken. Boo :( Anyhow, I think I will devote a post to all the happenings that this instigated….hopefully sometime this week or next. In the meantime, I do have a brand new card to share with you using a fun new stamp!

This is Foxy Knitter from High Hopes Stamps' new Spring is in the Air collection. I really love this new collection and I did buy quite a few of them! I decided to make a peek-a-boo card and did this using a pre-cut card and just using some circle dies from ME to cut the window and the frame. I filmed a video and that will be up later this week. The “hello” is die cut using a Stampin’ up die. Love, love how it looks.
