For day 6, I wanted to do a shaker card using Lawn Fawn and Pretty Pink Posh products. It was challenging and there was a little bit of pressure doing it on camera, but I liked the end result.

Here is my card –

Happy Birthday Foxy!

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card for a couple of challenges that I am combining. I will have the names and pictures of the challenges at the end of the post.

The specifics of the challenges are – using a fox image, using patterned paper, and using critters. I tried joining those 3 requirements on my card.

Here is my card —

Happy Birthday Foxy

I started this card with some Neenah Solar White card stock cut to a standard size card with the fold on top. I used the woodgrain paper from Lawn Fawn’s Into the Woods 6×6 paper pad to cover the entire front of the card. For the focal point, I created a shaker panel using more papers from the Into the Woods 6×6 paper pad and the Into the Woods sequin mix. I used a double layer of foam  tape to raise the image. For the circle panel and scallop borders, I used the Sizzix Framelits nesting dies.

I used the fox from Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Forest stamped on Simon Says Stamp 120lb card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored it ion with Copic markers (Thank god for the upcoming Online Card Class — I need all the help I can get). I cut the image out and attached it to the shaker panel with foam squares. For added interest, I covered the fox with some Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen.

For the sentiment, I used the ‘Happy Birthday” semtiment from Lawn Fawn’s Hats Off To You set combined with Milo’s ABC to create a custom sentiment to match the fox.

That’s it for this card.

I am entering this card for the following challenges —

1. Moxie Fab World Foxy Foxes Challenge

2. Virginia’s View Challenge  – using patterned paper

Giving Thanks – Pretty Pink Posh Sequin Shaker BlogHop

bloghop

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card for the Pretty Pink Posh Sequin Shaker Card Blog Hop. Paulina has a store selling the most amazing colors of sequins and other embellishments. And not only are the products amazing, she is amazing.

To celebrate the success of her store and the growing popularity of sequins, she decided to host a blog-hop and invite everyone to join in.

So here is my card  —

Giving Thanks - Shaker Card

 

I started this card with the Green Apple card stock from Simon Says Stamp cut to 4 1/2 by 5 1/2 (a little bigger than a standard size card).  For the shaker panel, I wanted to try something different (at least to me). I have never made a shaker card with different compartments so I wanted to try it. I have this die cut set from Momenta that I saw that the clearance area in Hobby Lobby and I loved it and immediately purchased it.

My first attempt was a minor fail. After I had placed where the flowers would go, I decided to make square compartments for each opening. I didnt realize that the sequins would barely stay in the center since the square was bigger that the flowers. My second attempt was the correct idea. I decided to use fun foam and I die cut the flowers where I wanted them and did a second layer.The sequins were contained only to the area of the flower.

The sequins I used are all from the Pretty Pink Posh shop. I used Lemon Drop, Tangerine and Pansy Purple. To each flower I also added mini clear sequins from Darice. I also scattered some same colored sequins to the front of the card which I adhered with Glossy Accents.For the sentiment, I used the Giving Thanks set from Simon Says Stamp. I used the “Giving Thanks” sentiment with VersaMark ink and added silver detail embossing powder from Recollections.

To finish the card, I felt the front panel was too white so added some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen on the edges.

That’s it for this card. I will back on Wednesday for another Wednesday Card Day.

Thanks for reading!

Thanks — Sequin Shaker Card

Hi everyone!

When I saw this amazing sequin shaker card from Laura Bassen, I knew I had to make one. Even her very cheerful and happy process video in making the shaker card drew me in.

I have never made a shaker card before but with the fast popularity sequins are gaining, I knew it was a definite must to create.

I didn’t have the die cut that Laura used from Kelly Purkey so I had to improvise.

Here is my card —

Thanks Shaker Card

 

and the front panel with the sequins spread out

Thanks Shaker Front Panel

 

I started this card with a standard size card folded on the top from some Bazzill card stock in Patina. I die cut the 3rd biggest frame from the Sizzix Majestic Labels #2 on some polka dot paper from the Doilies 6×6 paper pad from Ki Memories. I also diecut the same shape from fun foam to use as the dimension for the sequins. I placed a small sheet of acetate to the back of the patterned paper panel.

For the sentiment, the die cut the Simon Says Stamp “thanks” die from some Blue Calypso paper from Bazzill and placed on top of the acetate. The die that Laura used had a built in sentiment, the thanks die cut acted as the built in sentiment.

Putting the card together was a struggle because I did not plan ahead for adhesives. I started with the card base, then the foam piece. I put some mixed pastel sequins I’ve had forever in my stash then the front panel with the acetate. I used my Xyron sticker maker to put some adhesive on the thanks die cut and adhered it to the center of the acetate.

That’s it for this card. Thanks for reading.
