Easy (almost) One Layer Card

Birthday Cards, Cards

Welcome! It’s already time for another Colour Me! challenge. Before I jump in to the challenge, I just want to thank everyone for your lovely comments, e-mails, and support. As it is for most of us, crafting is my passion so when I hear from viewers and readers, it just means the world to me. To all of you, I want to extend a very warm and sincere THANK YOU!

Ok, so moving on, this week the Colour Me! challenge is to create a project using baby blue, green, and pink.CMCC80

I created an *almost* one-layer card. As usual, there’s a video to show you how I created my card. You can watch it below, or on YouTube.

This card was really easy to create. I think it would be fun to replicate and make a set of similar cards with matching envelopes to give as a gift.

You Rock! Shaker Card

Any occasion, Cards

Hey guys! It’s time for another Colour Me challenge. The challenge this week is to create a project using blue and turquoise.

CMCC79I used my Silhouette Portrait machine to create an easy shaker card. You can watch how I made it on YouTube, or below–

This card was a cinch to create with my Silhouette Portrait machine. I designed the card front using a diamond shape I got a few weeks ago from the weekly Free Shape of the Week giveaway in Silhouette Studio. I also included a stitched border detail on my front panel. I have a quick video here showing how you can easily add the stitched border to any shape using Silhouette Studio.

The Alley Way Stamps – Lightning Bug Shaker Card

Cards, Shaker Card, The Alley Way Stamps

Welcome! Today is a very exciting day here on the z² blog because it’s my first official post for the Alley Way Stamps. In case you missed the announcement a few weeks ago, I’ve joined the Alley Way Stamps YouTube Design team.

Earlier this week it was Canada Day and since today is the 4th of July, I thought a fun lightning bug shaker would be a fun celebration card for this time of year. For my card, I used the Bugging Out mini stamp set and coordinating electronic cut files. You can watch the video tutorial I created on YouTube by clicking here, or below–

This card has everything (except the kitchen sink!) on it. Because the shaker was such a large and sparkly focal point, I felt like the rest of the card needed a little balance.

This card has plenty of razzle dazzle and is the perfect for any celebration at this time of year.

That’s it for me today. Make sure to visit the Alley Way Stamps Blog to see what the other girls are creating.

This colour is perfect timing for Canada Day and the upcoming 4th of July, but I decided to go in a completely different direction.
