Here is my card —

You and Me

 

I started this card with some Bazzill card stock in Fawn cut to a standard size card with the fold on top. I used a polka dot pattern from Pink Paislee’s Pen Pal collection for the bottom layer. For the focal image, I used the Sizzix Labels #3 as the panel. On top of the panel, I used the You and Me die from Sizzix and die cut the boy and the girl in more of the Pen Pal paper from Pink Paislee. I used the blue and pink heart paper to match boy and girl.

For the sentiment, I die cut the sentiment die You + Me using the same pink and blue paper and  I inlaid the letters  again to match. For the +, I colored white card stock with a red marker and die cut the +. To finish the card, I accented the letters and the heart above the boy and girl with the Clear Wink of Stella pen and then I added Glossy Accents on the heart to give it some dimension.  I attached both panels with foam tape.

That’s it for this card.

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card for The Cutting Edge blog hop hosted by Paulina from Pretty Pink Posh. This is my second card for this hop. For this card, I used the rainbow die from the You and Me collection from Sizzix.

Here is my card —

You Fill My Day with Color

I started this card with some Hero Arts Snow layering paper cut to 4 3/4 by 4 inches. I positioned the rainbow die from the the You and Me set and die cut it using my Cuttlebug. I will be using the negative space for the front panel of the card. For the rays of the rainbow, I covered it with Elmer’s Glitter Glue and when it dried I added some Glossy Accents to give it some dimension. I also cut more rays and attached it to each other to thicken each ray. I inlaid the rays using Glossy Accents to secure it. For the clouds, I used a piece of paper and stuck in under the panel and adhered some Sparkling Clear sequins behind the cloud negative.

For the sentiment, I used the Color and Sunshine set from Simon Says Stamp with my new favorite combination of pigment ink and clear embossing powder.

To finish the card, I adhered the panel to a 5 by 4 1/4 inch card base of the same Snow layering paper. I also added more sequins in Pink Peonies, Mossy Green, Cornflower Blue and Sparkling Clear to accent the card.

That’s it for thus card. For a list of products I used, please check out the supply list below.

I Love You More Than IceCream

I started this card with some Neenah dessert Storm card stock cut to  a standard size with the fold on top. I cut a piece of patterned paper from Bo Bunny that was included in the kit. I attached it to the front of the card tilted. For the diamond, I cut a die border from Sizzix on some brown paper.

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

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.
