Let it Snow! - Snow Globe Shaker Kit 0
The wintry images in the Snow Globe stamp set are so adorable! I've put together the penguin and snowman for this first card. I stamped them, colored with Copics, then did some aqua ink blending on the sky before stamping some aqua and metallic silver snowflakes and my sentiment.
Once the stamping was done, I adhered the Circle Foam Front Shaker, filled the shaker with kit toppings, and covered with acetate. I stamped the snow globe base in black, then grounded that with some light gray shading. To get that stitched aqua frame. I started with the circle that's left over from a Circle Foam Front Diecut, then used a smaller circle die from my stash to cut the middle out, leaving me with a perfectly sized circle frame.
Along the top, I added various embellishments in the same white, purple and aqua colors as the snow globe scene.
For my next card, I wanted to create a serene wintry scene. In both soft and smokey grays, I stamped a grouping of trees, leaving the limbs bare for winter. Having four separate limb stamps to mix and match is so helpful for a grouping like this, as each tree can look slightly different. I sponged on a light gray horizon line to help give the effect of a snow-covered ground, then filled the shaker with white, silver, and aqua toppings.
There is a holly berry image in the stamp set that works double-time as the aqua "snowballs" in this scene. The globe base is stamped, trimmed out and adhered to the frame layer. I selectively stamped words from two different sentiment images to get this simple "for you" sentiment.
Last card for today is a stamped wreath popped up on the foam circle negative.
This one is pretty straightforward. I stamped the pine sprig, holly leaves, holly berries, pinecones, and bow to make the wreath, stamped "best wishes" in the center, and adhered it to the foam circle.
In the Mood for Fall! 1
Greta Hammond here with you today showing a couple of cards I made using the very versatile Shaped Shaker Tags. Even though it was almost 90 degrees here, I was in the mood for fall!
Fruit Slices! 0
Greta back with you today with another set of cards made from the super cute Fruit Basket Kit. My kids have gone back to school but I am still trying to squeeze a little summer sweetness out of each day!
Pick a bushel or a bundle! 0
Cut some lemon shapes from yellow cardstock, ink the edges for dimension, add a few highlights...dress them with leaves & stalks & you have yourself a couple of zesty lemons. Now obviously the bottoms of the lemons will in essence, appear 'cut off', the way to overcome this is to cover them. I used a sentiment tab raised on foam adhesive & an adorable lemon slice filled with teeny lemon fimo pieces to do this. Don't you love how the twinkle drops make it good enough to eat!
Hello Yellow! 0
Michele Boyer here today sharing two cards I created using Queen & Company’s latest shaker kit, Fruit Basket. This kit is incredibly fun with nine dies, the cutest toppings ever, a large punny sentiment set, coordinating paper pad, twine and, of course, the precut foam and acetate shapes. Oh yes, there are also epoxy dot stickers as well as droplet stickers that look just like watermelon seeds.
Apples vs. Oranges! 0
The rainbow paper in the kit stack was an ABSOLUTE favorite for me! So I just covered the whole card front with it and went from there. The apple shaker box is perfect for this time of year with school starting and fall approaching.
