Grace’s Shaker Card

Hi everyone, Heidi here, today I would like to show you this fun shaker card, for which I used several Kennedy Grace Creations products. For all the elements on my card I choose colours that worked well with the sequins mix that I wanted to use, which is the Kennedy Grace Creations “Rainbow Sherbet “ Shaker Bits & Things mix.

To get this card started I stamped one of the flowers from the Kennedy Grace Creations “Grace’s Little Note “ stamp set onto Copic friendly paper using Memento “Tuxedo Black “ ink. I coloured the flower using the following Copic Sketch Marker colours: E000, YR01, G40, YG06, G94 and Y000 (which is a light yellow, around the outer edges). Next I fussy cut the image out using my Fiskars scissors.

Then I started working on the shaker panel: I die cut a scalloped panel out of some light yellow card stock using the middle sized die in the Kennedy Grace Creations “Scalloped Stitched Stacked Rectangle “ die set, and also a square stitched panel using one of the dies in the My Favorite Things “Stitched Rectangle STAX “ die set from some white linen textured card stock. I used one of the smaller stitched dies from the same My Favorite Things die set to cut away the inner rectangles from both the yellow and the white panel, creating the shaker element window. For the actual window I used a piece of acetate sheet, cut to the right size with my scissors. I adhered these three parts together using tape runner (for the acetate window) and Ranger Medium Matte.
The sequins that I will put in later on will need room to move freely so I used two millimetre thick foam tape to create the “walls “ for the shaker window. I used my anti-static powder tool around the inner edges to reduce the stickiness from the foam tape. Then I set this piece aside.

For my card base I choose a light pink shimmery colour (from my local craft store). I die cut two additional rectangle mats from the same yellow and white card stock that I used before (using dies from my rectangle Crea-Nest-Lies XXL die set) and adhered them together using liquid glue. These panels I mounted onto the pink card base using one millimetre thick foam tape.

The last piece that I created for this card is the panel for the sentiment: for this I die cut a rectangle from the same white linen textured card stock as I used before, using one of the dies from the same My Favorite Things die set. On this panel I stamped one of the sentiments from the Kennedy Grace Creations “Beautiful Blooms - Sweet Rose “ stamp set, using Versafine “Onyx Black “ ink and my MISTI (because the linen textured card stock is a bit uneven I stamped twice, just to be sure that the sentiment would be readable). I adhered some sequins from the mix that I’m using onto this panel using Ranger Medium Matte (so that some of the sequins stay at the top even when the card is standing up, that way it will look more balanced).

And then it’s time to put this card together: I found some matching ribbon in my stash that I adhered around the shaker window, using the “walls “ as my adhesive for the ribbon to stick to. I already mounted the bigger white and yellow rectangle mats on the card base earlier on, now I can adhere the panel with the sentiment on there using liquid glue. I poured the sequins from the Kennedy Grace Creations “Rainbow Sherbet “ Shaker Bits & Things mix on this panel and placed the shaker window over it and for my final element I adhered the coloured flower on top using Ranger Medium Matte.

That’s it for today’s fun project, I hope you enjoyed and until the next time, have a creative day!

Love and Laughter,

Sweet Birthday

Hello everyone! First of all, wishing you all a very happy new year! It's Berina here today, sharing a beautiful and sweet card using the tic tac toe board for January!

I used the diagonal from the board - Die Cut, Embossing and Flowers. I decided to use the Splendid Roses for the flowers. I stamped the floral image using Memento black ink and colored the flowers with Copic markers. I used V09, V17, V15 and V12 for the flowers and G99, YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for the leaves. I loved coloring these flowers. I cut the panel into 4" x 5 1/4". For the sentiment, I decided to go with the "Wishing you a sweet birthday" from the same stamp set. I gold embossed the sentiment and die cut it with a small oval. I colored the edges of the die cut with V15. I took a top folding A2 cardbase and colored the edges of the front with V15. I adhered the image panel on to the card base with glue and attached the sentiment panel with foam tape. I love how this card has turned ou…

Birthday Tea Party

Hello everyone! It's Berina here today! I'm here to inspire you to create something with our beautiful Mood board for December. I love the beautiful festive colors.

I've been wanting to use the Vintage Tea Cups stamp set the moment I got it I love the tea cup stamp. As soon as I saw this moodboard, I was fixated on using that stamp set.

I stamped the border image from the stamp set using Memento London Fog on the top left and lower right. I stamped the kettle and the cup with the same ink. I used Copic markers to color the images. I used BG15, BG13, BG11 and BG000 for the teal colored part and C7, C3, C1 and 0 for the remaining. I decided to add some grounding for the kettle and cup with the grey color. I stamped the sentiment using Hero Arts black ink.
