I made this card for a swap I did with my team earlier in September. I also included it as a card kit with instructions for my virtual hostess club. My team swaps are so fun and the ladies are seriously talented. :)
Here's a closeup which really shows off our new glitter paper! Very sparkly. :)
I used the fuse tool to create the shaker piece which was much quicker and easier than I anticipated. :) I also used our glitter paper, spooky trio die set and trick or treat sequins from the holiday catalog. They paired well with the boo die and cardstock in our annual catalog. I'm really enjoying the melon petite hexagon cardstock so much that I think I will be ordering a whole pack very soon. :)
Email me if you would like a copy of the instructions for the boo fuse shaker card above or to see the October Collection at firstname.lastname@example.org!
I made this card for a swap I did with my team. It's always like opening a present when we do our swaps. Such a bunch of talented ladies. :)
I used a stamp set and matching die set from the April Collection called birthday icons. This set has 8 cute images and related sentiments. So fun to use for birthdays and other occasions. I also used the yellow striped washi form the celebration set. Very cute patterns.
Here's a little preview of a stamp set from the March collection called be brave. I stamped the sunrays twice and colored the sun with copics. I blended the center of the sun with Y11, Y13 & Y15. The outer rays were colored with Y17 and Y15.
Here's a fun technique that creates a smooth, soft look. Using a sponge dauber, pick up some ink from the buttercup ink pad. Transfer the ink to a baby wipe, then "stain" the butterfly (over the embossed area) with color. Begin in the center with buttercup, working lightest to darkest, add lime, then mermaid. Experiment with different colors.
The tulips in the happiness blooms set are very pretty and fun to color. Color was added to the tulips and leaves by using the solid egg stamp from the spring scene stamp set. Super simple & quick. See the whole February Collection here!
