Watercolor shaker

Helloooo again.

I'm back again today with a card to share (are you impressed yet? ;) LOL!) I'm trying to be more consistent with sharing my crafty creations. You see, I am a last minute Lucy...So I usually make stuff as I need them and am finishing it as I'm heading out the door. Sometimes, I get to snap a quick pic...other times, it's gone forever!LOL! Even when I do just create for fun, I usually figure I will photograph and blog it later...but later seldom comes before it's needed and gone too. ;)

Anyway... I have some cards I made recently that I plan to share. I could share them all at once...but that would probably mean I would not be back for another few months. So I'm going to go slow and hopefully get as addicted to 'sharing" my cards as much as I am to creating them.

OK, I've rambled on long enough...

Here's todays card :

For this card I pulled out some Altenew gorgeousness and got inky!  I started by die cutting a circle into a 3 3/4 X 5 1/2 panel of wood grain card stock. I also cut a piece of watercolor card stock to the same dimensions and water colored it with some peerless watercolor.  The butterfly is from the "Bejeweled" set and is also watercolored.  I fussy cut it out since I don't own the dies yet and added some glossy accents to make it shine.  I stamped the sentiment onto the watercolor panel and used foam tape and sequence to create a shaker card. I mounted it all to a grey card base and attached the butterfly to the front with foam tape too.
I didn't get a photo of the inside, but I water colored another panel that was attached to the inside. 

Well, that's it from me for today. I hope ou are having a good one.
Take care
Peace and love

Bella Silhouette

Hello. I'm just popping in quickly to share a card.

The background was masked and inked up with distress inks. The image is an older one from Stamping Bella,  (I'm not sure if it's still around, I will try to find out and update this post) that was stamped using my MISTI and Memento Tuxido black ink.  The sentiment is from PTI and is also stamped with the same ink. The panel was then mounted onto a white card base using foam tape. I finished the card off with some rain drop beads also from PTI.

We are off to the Amusment park for the day.

Thanks for stopping by.

Abstract cover up

Hello again ;)
Today I have a card to share with you that uses the MFT Abstract cover up die. The moment this die was previewed it was love at first sight. So when my box finally arrived after spending a full week at Canadian customs. (Perhaps they needed a bit of happy in their day too ;) ) I was very excited to get cutting.
I wanted the die to be the star of the show...

....So I went to work die cutting it using plain white card stock.  I then colored all the negative pieces out with copics, making sure to use a rainbow of bright and happy colors.  I then added some zig wink of stella shimmer to the colored pieces. To attach the pieces to the card base I used the frame as a guide. I attached the pieces with foam tape and then removed the frame.  To finish this card I heat embossed my sentiment in white onto a black die cut banner.

This card just makes me HAPPY!  I hope it does the same for you too. ;)

Have a great day

You Rock!

Good morning all.
Today I have a card to share that I am entering into the MFT sketch challenge.

Here's the sketch :
And here's my card:

This was a seriously fun card to make. I love the look of the woodgrain cardstock.  I started out by die cutting a circle into the front  of the woodgrain panel.  Next, I die cut the black frame to border the circle and added a piece of acetate to make a window.  I also die cut a stitched star using silver glitter paper and adhered it to the black card base under the window.  I added beads and sequence to create the shaker element.  The guitar was cut with various colors of card stock and adhered together.  I added some wink of stella shimmer to add some interest and covered it with a layer of glossy accents. I added nail heads to the black frame to give it a bit more of a pop! The sentiment was heat embossed with silver embossing powder onto black card stock. I added some nail heads to the ends to tie it into the frame. 

 This is what the inside looks like:

For the inside, I die cut a stitched mat and stamped the sentiment using  Momento tuxedo black ink. I used the rock and roll technique to stamp the flame.

I am also entering this card into the SSS Wednesday challenge that is all about spots and dots this week.

Thanks for stopping by.
