Hi, friends! On Monday, my crafty friend Marika visited me. We made a card together and had so much fun. 😄 We decided to make a Springtime Shaker Card with Hello Bluebird Stamps and Dies along with two terrific stencils from My Favorite Things.

Make sure to watch the video below for tips and tricks on how to make this card.

First, I stamped and colored images from the Springtime and McGregor’s Garden Stamp Sets from Hello Bluebird. Like I mentioned in the video, my coloring technique is beginner friendly and super fun to do!

Next, I created a scene with the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil from My Favorite Things along with their Grassy Edges Stencil. Of course I used Distress Oxide Inks to do the blending. These inks are such a joy to work with! 😍

Afterwards, I made the frame for my shaker using a die cut from the Stitched Rectangles Die Cut Set from Lawn Fawn. This time I used Scotch Foam Mounting Tape to add dimension instead of Fun Foam and liquid adhesive. However, both ways work! Finally, I filled up the shaker with the Pink Lemonade Couture Mix from The Ton along with Sparkling Clear and Lime Sorbet Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Hi everybody! I’m thrilled to be back with another video and two cards in honor of The Ton’s Summer 2017 Release Blog Hop. The Ton has 24 new stamps for their new Summer 2017 Release which includes up to four free gifts with purchases. For more information on The Ton’s incentive gifts, head over to The Ton’s blog. All new release products are available now!

I decided to showcase the Beer stamp set and the Sunnies stamp set. First, I’ll be showing you the Father’s Day card I made with the Beer stamp set. I’m pretty sure my dad will love this set since he’s a Belgian beer lover.

This card is super clean and simple, but I did add some pops of sparkle with sparkly embossing powder and a variety of The Ton’s sequins (Spotlight Couture Mix and Glass Slippers). Even though this is a Father’s Day card, I couldn’t resist! My dad knows that I’m sequin and glitter obsessed so I’m sure he won’t mind! 😉

Stamping the beer was a lot of fun! I like to use my MISTI tool whenever I’m using a layering stamp set since it makes it just so much easier. Especially if you’re going to be mass producing designs! For the body of the beer I used The Ton’s Citrine Ink Collection. For the handle I used Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz. Finally, I used Noir for the sentiment.

For my second card, I wanted to feature the adorable new Sunnies stamp set. I created a collage style card by mixing different stamp sets. I used the Darling Flamingos, Macarons and Fresh Cut Peonies sets from The Ton. I just love these different images together! It looks pretty cute! I used some clear and sparkly embossing powder for a glossy finish on the sunglasses. I finished off the design with a variety of sparkly sequins.
