Looking for my Sunny Studio 4th Birthday Blog Hop post? it’s the post right below this one!
Hi, friends! Shake it, shake it off… or something like that. 🙂
I’m up over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog with a new tutorial! I’m showing how to make a shaker card, as well as a coordinating shaker tag, that would be perfect to add to a Halloween treat.
These two little shakers took a little bit of time to make, but they would be easy to reproduce with supplies you have. I’d sure be tickled if you’d check out the post.
By the way, if you want more Halloween paper craft inspiration, don’t miss this post as well. You’ll find a sweet little Halloween card I put together. You’ll also get a tip for holding stencils in place while you use them to apply ink to paper.
See you again soon, friends!
Hi there, friends!
I’m back with another card to share with you.
This card was quick to put together… and a lot of fun too!
To make the “rainbow”, I cut two sunray backgrounds from white cardstock with the Lawn Fawn die. I set one on my craft table and set the other (temporarily) on my card. Then I used that one as a guide to add the rainbow rays to the card with my colored pencils.
Once I had the rainbow completed, I adhere the second sun panel to the card. (I kept that first panel so I could make more cards like this one later.)
Then I stamped a sentiment from the Encouraging Greetings stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh on a strip of cardstock. I added a little bit of thread underneath it and then added it to my card.
This card is fine as it is, but you could always kick it up a notch if you wanted to. Just add sequins or crystal drops to the “rainbow” rays. Gems would be cool too.
Looking for even more card inspiration? Be sure to check this post out on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog! I’ve put together 3 window cards for the post. You’ll get the scoop, plus lots of tips to use adhesives in out-of-the-box ways.
I hope you will check it out. Thanks, as always, for stopping by!
Back again with another card to share with you. Today’s card features an encouragement card that came together quickly with the help of a stencil and a few basic supplies.
I created the background for this card with the Leaves stencil from Pretty Pink Posh. I have been on a bit of a stencil kick lately, and, when I saw that stencil, I knew I had to make a card with it. Such a fun one.
I stenciled the pattern right onto the card directly with Distress Oxide Ink pads and a makeup brush from Daiso. I love how bold the Distress Oxide Inks are and how well they blend together.
To keep the card from being really boring with just an inked background, I added a few dots with white Nuvo Drops. It’s such a simple and easy way to add some visual interest.
The sentiment is from Pretty Pink Posh as well. It came from the Encouraging Greetings stamp set. So many lovely phrases in it that are perfect for sending something to encourage a friend or loved one… or pick up their spirits.
Alright. That is all I have for you today. I’ll be back again real soon with another card to share with you.
By the way, looking for more cards from me? Don’t miss the interactive monster card I shared over the blog for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L this week. It features a lot of fun details and elements that are easy to recreate on cards you make.
Here’s a little peek at the card.
Hope you will check it out!
See you again soon, friends!
Dropping by today to share a card created with one of Paper Smooches’ new crafting dies. I’m just so excited to send this card to one of my stamping friends.
The flowers were created with the new Stemmed Rose Dies. Rather than doing a bunch of paper piecing and all, I cut them from white cardstock and then used my markers to add a little color to them. It is kind of a tedious task with thin, intricate dies, but I think the results are almost always stunning.
Now, this card has a fun little twist. The die set comes with a mat die. Rather than matting the flowers onto mats, I used the mat die to cut a window out out of the front of the card. I placed one of the flowers inside the card, right so you could see it through the window.
One thing I did on the front of the card, to make the flowers stand out on it, was I opened it and sponging a little blue ink onto it. I did it softly, over and over in a circle. I also added a sentiment (perfect for my stamping friend) from the Fun & Flirty stamp set.
To finish things off, I added couple sequins. They are always a nice, fairly flat, way of finishing a card.
Thanks for stopping by! I’ll be back again later, gators.
PS. Don’t miss this post I shared over the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog recently! It shows a fun way to use foil to make a wedding card!
