Hello, friends! I’m happy to be back with another card and video, oh and… a giveaway! Just keep on reading until the bottom of this blog post and watch my video to catch all the details. 🍀

In today’s video, I’m showing you how to create a Halloween shaker card featuring a bunch of My Favorite Things goodies. Don’t you just love these very spooky (😉) woodland critters dressed up in their costumes? They are sooooo sweet. 🧡🎃

First, I stamped and colored three of the animals from the Frightfully Sweet stamp set from My Favorite Things. Next, I created a Halloween inspired blended background with Distress Oxide inks. I used Wilted Violet, Faded Jeans, Twisted Citron and Carved Pumpkin. When I first started blending I had some trouble to get a nice and clean blend between Faded Jeans and Twisted Citron. The key to a good blended background using any color is to make sure your blending foam is saturated with ink and to never give up, lol. Just keep on blending. Finally, I stamped trees and leaves from the Modern Trees set with Archival Jet Black Ink.

After finishing my blended background, I used the Large Rectangle Shaker Window & Frame die cut from My Favorite Things. This set is designed to fit their Large Rectangle Shaker Pouches, but you can also use them without these! I simply adhered a piece of acetate to the back of my panel and then created a frame with Fun Foam. To fill up my shaker, I created a custom shaker mix with several Pretty Pink Posh sequins. To finish off my shaker, I die cut the frame from the Large Rectangle Shaker Window & Frame set and colored it with Wilted Violet and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink.

To finish off the card, I created an embossed sentiment v- shaped banner. Of course I also added some sparkle to the images with a sparkle pen and a bit of dimension using Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. 💫

Hi, again! Last week, Kristina Werner shared a video on how to create a super easy shaker card. She uses foam tape, doubles it back on itself and then removes the release paper. This inspired me to create my own blog post on my favorite technique to make sequin shaker cards. 😄

In the video, I’m showing you how to make a clean and simple shaker card with acetate, foam sheets and liquid adhesive.

I don’t have any foam tape so whenever I make a shaker, I like to use Fun Foam. These are white foam sheets that are easy to cut to any shape. You can also use die cuts with it to match the shape of your shaker window. In the past I made shaker cards with foam tape, but the sequins always tended to stick to the edges even though I used kitchen flour or anti-cling powder to take the stickiness away.

No Fuss Shaker Card Feat. Hello Bluebird Stamps

I filled up my shaker with the Belle’s Dress Couture Sequin Mix from The Ton. This mix is just so pretty! I love that shade of yellow and the small gold sequins and teeny tiny flowers are great eye-catchers. To add even more sparkle to this shaker, I also added some Crystal Cloud Circles Confetti from Tonic. 💛

No Fuss Shaker Card Feat. Hello Bluebird Stamps

A couple of weeks ago, I shared a card made with Hello Bluebird stamps. I promised I would share more cards featuring these fun products, so here you go! 😀 I used the McGregor’s Garden set again. That little bunny holding the flower pot makes me so happy. He looks adorable. I also colored two of the small birds to match with the sequin shaker. 🐥

That’s it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by. I’ll see you soon. Big hugs. 💌

Hi, friends! Welcome back to a new blog post. It’s been way too long, but I promise I will make it up to you as soon as I’m done with college. Today I’m joining Taheerah for her Advent Calendar Extravaganza since Christmas is just around the corner. How fun!

Advent Calendar Extravaganza is -the- festive event of the season! This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are ONE HUNDRED special guests – each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration! Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!

And that’s not all! With 25 *amazing* sponsors taking part as guests as well, your crafty wish list is bound to get a boost with a chance to win a prize EVERY SINGLE DAY!!

Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises await behind the door!

For my project, I’m featuring festive products from Sunny Studio Stamps. I made an interactive slider card that I think you will love! Unfortunately, I don’t have a video tutorial this time. I made this card in bits and pieces in between studying and working on college assignments. So next time I’ll have a video for you! 🙂

I started out by masking off a snow hill with masking paper. Then I used Tumbled Glass ( HLM | AMZUS | ELH | SSS ), Broken China ( HLM | AMZUS | ELH | SSS )and Faded Jeans Distres Ink ( HLM | AMZUS | ELH | SSS ) to create a winter sky. To add some texture, I used Texture Paste  HLM | AMZUS | AMZUS | ELH ) and a stencil for a snow effect. I sprinkled on some glitter from Tonic ( HLM | AMZUS | SSS ). I’m in love with this glitter! It’s so sparkly and has a very fine texture. However, it’s SUPER messy and it gets everywhere. But it’s really worth it.

After creating my circle base, I stamped a cute penguin from the Snow Kissed stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps ( HLM | SNN | SSS ). I colored this little guy with Copic markers and then used the coordinating die to cut him out. Next it was time to create my slider piece! I used the Slider dies from Lawn Fawn ( HLM | SSS | ELH | AMZUS ) for that. Finally, I used a sparkle pen from Spectrum Noir ( HLM | AMZUS | ELH | SSS ) and the Clear Glaze from Tonic ( TNCUK | AMZUS | SSS ). You know how much I like to finish a card with some shimmer and shine! 🙂

Happy Saturday, everybody! Today I’m part of Heffy Doodle‘s first ever Blog Hop in honor to celebrate their launch. Some of you might not have heard about Heffy Doodle just yet! That’s because they’re a brand new stamp company by Lesley Oman. You can support Heffy Doodle by donating via their Kickstarter Campaign! The more money you pledge, the more stamps you’ll receive! 🙂

For Heffy Doodle‘s first release, they have 4 stamp sets with 4 coordinating die sets and a very special 5th stamp set for all of you interactive card makers. Each of the 4 animal stamp sets has been designed to work on their own or together as part of the full collection. Each set contains 3 cute animals, a range of accessories for them and a versatile set of sentiments. There are also coordinating dies available for each animal set! Some of the dies even have internal cuts which allow you to tuck accessories into the hands of your stamped animals.

For my video, I decided to showcase Happy Snappy Crocs and make an ombré sequin shaker card with Distress Inks. Isn’t that stamp set simply adorable?

This card was a lot of fun to make! It’s been a while since I made a shaker card with Fun Foam ( AMZ | SSS ) and Lifestyle Crafts Acetate ( SSS ). Making shakers with the Fuse tool is definitely easier and faster but shakers made with foam and acetate shake better! That’s just my personal opinion, of course!

I colored the images from Heffy Doodle Happy Snappy Crocs ( Heffy Doodle ) with Copic Markers. I’m *still* learning to master these markers. It’s just not that easy! I’m always in awe of people who make the most gorgeous art with Copic Markers. I think I just have to play around a bit more and see what works best for me.

I created an ombré shaker card with Distress Inks. I used three shades of yellow: Squeezed Lemonade Mini Distress Ink ( ELH | AMZ | SSS ), Mustard Seed Mini Distress Ink  ( ELH | AMZ | SSS ) and Fossilized Amber Mini Distress Ink ( ELH | AMZ | SSS ) To fill up my shaker. To fill up my shaker I used matching sequins. This time I used the Belle’s Dress Couture Mix from The Ton. They just have the best mixes out there! By the way, did you notice my new backdrop?! I love it! It’s the Marble design by The Ton. They have plenty of beautiful designs so go and check them out!

GIVEAWAY

Time for a giveaway! You can leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win a Heffy Doodle cotton tote bag and a set of 12 Distress Oxided! Comments must be left by 12 noon BST on July 20th and the winner will be announced shortly after on the 22nd of July on the Heffy Doodle Blog. Entries are open worldwide. Good luck! 🙂
