I had some relatives from out of town arriving this past week, it was busy busy busy.  Really wished I had more time for crafting since this is my 2nd shaker card EVER, I felt it looked a little plain. And I wished the little glitter pieces didn’t stick to the film as much as at did :( Any suggestions for what material to put into shaker cards are greatly appreciated!!

I absolutely love this image! Its perfect for summer, stroll in the park with the furry friend, now that’s MY kind of summer! The pink dress is great for special occasions like Birthdaaays! Got a lot of birthdays coming up, gotta start my cards early!

This is one of my first times coloring clothing like this and I’m pretty happy with the results!

Hope you like it!

I’ve used the image Walkies for my project this week!

My 1st Shaker Card!

This card is my very first shaker card ever! I’ve been meaning to try for a while, but just never really had an idea of where to start and what to do.

This week at Simon Says Monday Challenge the theme was About a Face.  BAM! Idea flooded.

I just received this Spellbinders Bird Stand die this past week and it worked perfectly for my Shaker Card project!

All the papers I’ve used are from My Mind’s Eye.

My project this week is slightly different where I’ve used some digital kits from Digital Design Essentials! Really love their stuff! I’ve used some FREEBIE  sentiments Create and Daily.  The pink ink splash is from the FREEBIE collection Because I’m happy Sampler and the Flower border is from the paper collection A Good Day. The pound sign is from the font collection Messy Stamp Black.

FFF: Watercolor Paint Attempt #1

This is my very first attempt on water coloring and boy, I’m pretty amazed with the turnout!! As you’re reading this I’m already on my second attempt with the water color paint! On top of the paint I also used some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to add a pearl effect.  Unfortunately the glimmer cannot really be seen in the photos.  I really tried!!

I’ve used the sentiment from The Greeting Farm Lucky Bunnies set.  The Ribbon Banner Die is from My Favorite Things, Scalloped Rectangles is from Spellbinders and lastly the design papers are from My Mind’s Eye. Oh! And gems are from Want 2 Scrap!

I found that stamping the sentiment wasn’t good enough after water coloring and misting, so I used clear embossing powder to make the sentiment pop! Really darkens the black ink making it stand out.

Hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did!
