Adoption Card with Lawn Fawn

Cards

Hi Crafty friends! Just a short post for today. I’m sharing a card that I created for a family who adopted a five year boy. The card is larger than normal (5×7) because it was passed around to several people to sign and celebrate.

I filmed as I created so I have a how-to video to share. You can watch the video below, or over on my YouTube channel.

Double Layer Shaker Card

Birthday Cards, Cards

Hi everyone! Today I have a card to share that I created almost two months ago and am finally getting the chance to post.

I absolutely adore making shaker cards, for a variety of reasons, but I wanted to up the ante and create something that I’ve never seen before: a double layer shaker card.

There is of course a how-to video so you can follow along as I create the card. You can watch the video below, or over on my YouTube channel.

Creating the shaker portion was just as easy as it always is (layer foam tape over acetate), but this time I created two separate chambers for my shaker material. The top layer is a whole bunch of fun party confetti, and the bottom layer is my favorite sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. The effect of the two separate shaker section is really neat in real life and I’m so pleased with how this card turned out.

If you like this card, you may also like the floating shaker card that I created a couple months ago. You can see it over on my YouTube channel in case you missed it.

Christmas Moose

Cards, Christmas Card

Welcome! Well, it’s been a few weeks since my last Colour Me challenge post. I’m back in the game and sharing my first Christmas card of 2015. This week the challenge is to create a project that incorporates red, green, orange, and yellow.

I have a how-to video to share to show you how I made my card. You can watch the video below, or on my YouTube channel.

The Alley Way Stamps stamp set that I used includes the moose, as well as several different decorations.

I used my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to colour in my moose. To get him all tangled in the lights, I used to fine tip marker to draw the cord, and then used the light bulb stamp to stamp the lights onto the cord. I went back in afterward to colour in each bulb using the challenge colours.

Of course, I had to add a little clear Wink of Stella glitter and Glossy Accents to complete the string of lights.

That’s it for today. Thanks so much for dropping by. I hope to see you playing along at the challenge.

Cards, Halloween Card, The Alley Way Stamps

Haunted hellos my crafty friends! Just a quick post for today. I’m back on the TAWS Blog to share another how-to video. You can watch the video below, or on my YouTube channel.

I loved embellishing this card with my Tiny Attacher by stapling on the images for some fun spooky flair.

Colouring Lawn Fawn using Spectrum Noir Markers

Birthday Cards, Cards

Hello my crafty friends. Welcome to another Colour Me! post. This week the challenge is to create a project using four colours: turquoise, salmon, green, and mustard.

For my project, I recreated a card that I made for my Dad’s birthday last week. I wanted to showcase a unique way to use your Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to create an almost watercoloured look. As usual, I let me camera roll as I created the card so you can watch the how-to video below, or on my YouTube channel.

I mentioned in a blog post last week that I have been obsessed with using stitched oval frames on my cards recently. For me, they are just a classic window into a story. I create my frames using my Silhouette portrait machine. If you don’t know how to add the stitched detail in Silhouette Studio, I have a YouTube tutorial that you can watch here to learn how.
