A Shaker Tag Birthday Card

Hello my crafty friends.  I have a Shaker Tag Birthday card to share with you guys today.  This is a birthday card I made for my sister-in-law using the colours she likes.  If you wonder why there is a dog on the tag...she also has a very cute white terry too :)

I was experimenting using other inks with the blending tool.  I used Tsukineko's Memento Dew Drops for all the inking needs for this card.  The terry was coloured with Copic Markers.  

The frame was made using the negative from a Mama Elephant's die.  I used all the purple and purplish colours, with a little bit of pink, in my Dew Drops collection and the ink blending tool to blend the colours on a piece of white card stock first.  I then die cut the frame out using Mama Elephant's All Prettied Up scalloped frame die, and as I mentioned before, I used the negative of the die cut for the frame.  

I then did some more inking on the card base at where the tag and the sentiments would be to give the background some interest.  

I also die cut the Wishing sentiment using Simon Says Stamp's Wishing die on a grey card stock.  I decided that the grey was too flat for the card design and with the blending tool and ink still out, I added some purple to the Wishing die cut piece.  I also lost the dots for the i's after die cutting!  So I decided to use stickle instead :)  

Since the shaker areas are very small, sequins are to big for it,  I used only sparkles inside the shaker tag!

That is it, I hope you find today's card inspiring!  All the products I used are listed below.  Thank you for stopping by and have a super creative day :)

A Super Easy But Gorgeous Patterned Paper & Stickers Card!

Hello my crafty friends, I am sharing with you a card that was just made with patterned paper and stickers.  When my daughter was still little, I brought a lot of stickers for card making and scrapbooking with her.  I still have a big selections of stickers left from back then and decided to use it to make a card today.

I used Doodlebug's patterned paper for the backgrounds, the sentiment strip and the butterfly.  I distressed the edge of the butterfly with distress ink and coloured its body with orange marker.  The sentiment strip was also distressed with some gray ink to tune down the white poker dot so that the HOORAY sentiment stands out.  All the flowers are stickers from years ago and I can't find them anymore.  However, you can make them yourself with the flower dies you have and I am sure it will looks fantastic :)

Graham's watercolour for this card but you can use any watercolour you like.  I have listed a alternate good watercolour set below.

Layered Embossing - Wishing You Only The Best

Hello my friends, I am back with another card this week that is also my homework for the Heat Wave Online Card Classes.

This Heat Wave embossing class is packed with a lot of great techniques to stretch the use of heat embossing!  Out of all that I chose layered embossing cause of my very limited heat embossing supplies!  I only have a set of metallic embossing powder from Zing that is opaque, the rest of my coloured embossing powder are translucent.  I didn't pay attention to the opacity of embossing powders before cause I mainly used clear, black, white and gold to emboss sentiments.  Now that I've learn all this great techniques, I am going to invest more on opaque embossing powders :)

Anyway, this beautiful card was made using stamp set for layer stamping, but instead of ink, I used embossing powders.  I am so thrilled with the results using this technique.  The sentiment was stamped using Delicate Gold pigment ink pad.  To give the card some dimension, I also used white fun foam to raise the main panel!  That is it, thanks to Online Card Classes, it is a very simple but gorgeous card for this week!
