Sending Hugs Shaker Card

Sending Hugs Shaker Card:

Shaker cards are really a lot of fun.  This balloon card is sending some hugs to someone who needs them.  The shaker elements is the “extra special” part of the card.  I used Georgie paper that had in my stash.  I’m working on using my stash right now to make room for the New Seasonal Expressions that will be launched very very soon.  =)

I used Jillibean’s shaker cup, card base, and dies to create the shaker.  The insides of the shaker are from Queen and Company.  All other materials are CTMH.  The cardstock colors are Juniper, Slate, and Crystal Blue.  The ribbon is from the Enchantment Ribbon Collection.  All the stamping is done in Juniper Ink which is still one of my favorite colors.

There is a back panel behind the shaker cup.  I stamped “hugs enclosed” on it before sealing the cup, then you adhere the paper panel to the back of the front of the card so the cup comes through the hole in the card.  I stood the card up for taking the picture so you could see it.  On the inside, I stamped “to brighten your day”.

April is a great month!  Here are the links to all of the great specials:

Hi Friend It’s the Last Day

Hi Friend

This is the last Cricut Shaker Card and my last card for the Spring Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop.  I hope you took some time to go over and look at the amazing work!!  =)

Using the sentiment “You are tea-rrific” from the Stamp of the Month S1703 Tea-rrific,  randomly stamp over the Kraft Cardstock with chocolate ink.  Use first and second generation images.

This is the last day you can purchase this stamp set so don’t miss out.  It’s got some super cute sayings and images in itBuild the shaker card on the Raspberry cardstock with your 3D foam tape.  I doubled up the tape and I sealed any openings with Liquid Glass to ensure the contents would not leak out.  Then you can add your shaker toppings.  Cover with transparency.  Add the top of the card on.  Lining up the card is much easier this way.  Use your shimmer brushes on the Cricut Sentiment and the steam from the cup.

Here’s the Design Space file (WARNING – all images were purchased images so if you do not have the cartridges, you’ll need them.  I’m happy to help you out with the CTMH ones):  https://us.cricut.com/design/#/canvas/56171688

Love You A Latte…I really do

Love You A Latte

With an anniversary around the corner on April 1 (and no, it’s not an April Fool’s Joke), this is a great card to have done.  It’s another one of my shaker card experiments with creating the shaker cards from the Cricut.  The Designer Space cut file will be posted on March 31 with the last shaker of the group.  It’s also part of the Spring Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop.  You can click here to see their post, the amazing sponsors, and fabulous art work. 

I used Sea Glass cardstock for the base and Kraft for the top.  I love Kraft paper for coffee cards.  I stamped a retired stamp from CTMH Coffee Stain randomly over the top of the craft paper.  The “Love You A Latte” says it all.  My husband is a coffee addict.  He’s got a K-Cup, an Nespresso, and I think he’s the holder of a platinum membership thingy with Starbucks, LOL.  Come to my house and you’ll get great coffee, tea, or espresso.

The sentiment is cut from the Cricut and piece together.  I used the Shimmer Brush to sparkle up the “you” in the sentiment.  For shaker contents, I used toppings from Queen and Company.   I liked how the new Neutral toppings mixed in with some of the older ones.  I think I like the old bottles better than the new packaging.  I put down some Dreamin Big sequins and added some Sugar Rush Dots to the center of them.  =)

This shaker card will be part of the extra shaker kits you can purchase at our Shaker Card Parties in April. 

March is a great month!  Here are the links to all of the great specials:

Oh Deer Thank You

Oh Deer Thank You Card

 

While Oh Deer is retired now, I’m sure we all have some of it left.  It was amazing paper, right!  Here’s a thank you card using some of my left overs.  I created it with the Sea Glass Cardstock (a limited time color), Cocoa Cardstock and Ink, White Shimmer Trim, and Sea Glass Glitter paper (another limited time product).

 

I love how the shimmer trim and glitter card stock add to the layers of the card in a elegant and simple way.  It’s  dressing the card up without overwhelming it.

The Sea Glass Glitter Paper is cut from the Cricut Flower Market Cartridge.  It makes it really easy to create fun, simple accents for cards or pages.  Be sure to get this cartridge for all it offers – 700 images plus the stamps and a paper pack.  Every flower has a meaning – the language of flowers – so this is a lifetime cartridge to be used over and over as your life goes through it’s various chapters!

If you like this thank you card, come to one of my events and do the Come and Play Card Buffet.   Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!

 

 

Birthday Wishes

Birthday Wishes

Here’s a new card on the Come and Play Card Buffet.  It’s made with the Adventure Paper Pack.  I’ve decided this is “happy paper”.   The colors are so bright and fun.  You just have to be happy when you are cutting them.

 

Layers really help to make this card.   I love the black background as it really sets off the bright colors.  The Silver Shimmer Tape on top of the Emerald (one of the new Adventure colors) helps to add a nice finishing touch.

 

Use Thin 3D Foam Tape to pop up the sentiment.  The Bitty Sparkles add the finishing touches to the card. Did you know you can color the Bitty Sparkles with our Touch Markers to make any color of gems to match your project?

If you need a birthday card, come to one of my events to do the Come and Play Card Buffet.  dThanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Oh Holy Night

Oh Holy Night Card

“Oh Holy Night” is one of my favorite Christmas songs and this M Stamp is retired now.  This card was inspired by my friend Krista Hershberger, a fellow consultant.  You can make this card in the Come and Play Card Buffet – the last one is Dec 18th (this Sunday).

 

I love, love our Star Thin Cuts!  There are three different sizes of stars.  The price point is amazing – $14.95 for the three AND they are on a magnetic sheet.  No cutting the dies apart.  You don’t have to buy have the magnetic storage sheet.  The price point is great for the three dies.  Add in the magnetic sheet and you’ll be hard pressed to find a matching deal on the market.  They store fantastically in our 6×6″ stamp envelopes.  The stamp envelopes store in two different organizers, the Large Organizer and the Acrylix Organizer.

 

I used the Black Shimmer Ribbon which has gold woven through out it.  This ribbon is great for some may different events with both cards and scrapbooking as black and gold can dress anything up.  The gold glitter paper is used to cut the stars out as well as the gold strip on the bottom of the card.

I felt like the black shimmer ribbon and gold glitter in the stamps and trim dressed up the “Oh Holy Night” stamp, celebrating the special event.  Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.

 

Holiday Card Buffet

Come and Play Card Buffet will feature 20 + Christmas Cards for you to get your Holiday Cards done.  The cards will be precut and stamped for you.  Because this is at my home, you are able to change things around and work on new techniques as you’ll have access to all the Holiday stamps.
