Marilyn on the blog today

I am so pleased to have been asked to join the Kennedy Grace Creations design team and I do have to say, the sequin mixes Michelle has created are such gorgeous, lush, and pretty combinations.  As soon as I saw the package, I knew it was calling for a shaker card.  What I really like about these mixes is that they are so fine and you are able to use a single layer of foam backing as a spacer so you reduce the bulkiness of most shaker cards.

For today's card, I chose to use the Iced Berries mix which is so pretty - little hearts, clear and turquouise seed beads and four different colours and two sizes of sequins.  You can't really see them in the photo but I did glue some of the seed beads to the flower sprays.  To see all these gorgeous mixes, head on over to the Kennedy Grace Creations shop.

The card was quick and easy to make.  This is a smaller than average shaker area but I thought the blue mix would be great for the water colour.  The flower vase is a freebie digital image from Tiddlyinks and the sentiment was added with the LD Shelly Print font.   Once I had these printed, it was an easy task to cut out the vase, layer the acetate and foam, add the sequins and glue the backing down.

The colouring was done with Copics and took a whopping 5 minutes and after adding some stickles, the CAS card is complete.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great week!

Baby Boy card bonanza!

Hi, Erica here with two cards today!

For the release post I made two baby girl card and only one boy card. Naturally, all my friends have decided to give birth to baby boys recently so that one itty-bitty card was already spoken for. Time to remedy that with another two boy cards and the sweet Sweet Baby Mine stamp set.

I started by cutting two A2 sized pieces of Strathmore Bristol Vellum card stock as I wanted to do an ink blended background for both cards. Using Post-It tape I taped strips across the panel to create a pattern, slightly different on both to keep it interesting. On one I went for blue and the other one got green and yellow. I also splattered more blue ink on the blue one and green ink on the green/yellow one.
















On another piece of Bristol I stamped two baby lions with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them in white embossing powder. These got coloured in with Zig markers and then fussy cut.

On the blue card I also cut out a white frame as well as the words 'A Boy'…
