Ghost Shaker Card

Hello! Today I’m sharing a shaker card featuring THIS adorable stamp set designed by Cathy Zielske for Simon Says Stamp. Isn’t it adorable!? I created this shaker card a bit differently than I normally do after watching THIS video from Jennifer McGuire. She is a creative genius! It makes creating a shaker card so much easier and I love the support the cardstock gives instead of the fun foam. If you haven’t watched it...

SSS January 2017 Card Kit

Hello. Today’s card uses goodies from THIS January Simon Says Stamp Card Kit… I was immediately drawn to the colored parchment papers in the kit and decided to stamp the gorgeous snowflake images on to a piece using the delicata pigment ink from the kit. I added white embossing powder on top and heat set it with my heat gun (after it was good and hot to prevent any warping).   I knew I...

Kindness Shaker Card

Hello there. I’m back today with a shaker card… To create this card, I die-cut THIS heart from the center of a white cardstock panel and from a piece of fun foam. I applied four different colors of distress ink on top in rainbow order (Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, and Cracked Pistachio). I adhered a piece of acetate behind the heart opening to serve as a window for the sequins. I wanted...

Clear Pocket Cards using the Fuse Tool

Hi there. I recently purchased THIS tool and was inspired by the Scrapbook Pocket Pages on the market to create Clear Pocket Cards…. If you’re not familiar with the Fuse tool… The Fuse Tool can be found HERE …it comes with a welding tip that fuses the plastic together, creating a seam. This is perfect for shaker cards, but I really like the idea of creating “mini” pocket pages. For my first card… I stamped...
