A Fun Faux Shaker Card!

So I was thinking, how can I make a shaker card without having to cut and glue craft foam?
Well then it dawned on me... Gloss Accents!!!
So here is my first (of many) Faux Shaker Cards.
I am using the fun new Christmas Lights Shaker Dies by A Jillian Vance Design!

So to make my "green cord" I used the NEW Slippery Slopes & Stitched Clouds die set.  It features several options of 4 different line shapes.  Each border die only cuts the line and stitching on each side of that line.  So you can make slopes, wavy lines etc.  BUT if cut once, then placed close to that first cut line, you can make a CORD for your Christmas Lights!
I then arranged my Scarlet Satin Sequins how I wanted them trying not to have them too perfectly lined up. Then here is where the MAGIC begins...take your Glossy Accents and put it just inside the cardstock line, then work toward the middle being careful NOT to touch the nozzle to the paper ~ or you will pick up sequins with it.  In that case, use your craft pick to place them back where they need to go.  And let dry over night.  Do not touch them or you will have your fingerprint embedded forever! 

And there you have the look of a Shaker card, without the layers of acetate and craft foam.
This is just another fun option!
I stamped the sentiment in Classic Cherry Ranger Dye Ink on a new sentiment strip that is included in a die set we can't reveal just yet.

Merry & Bright Shaker Card

Hello everyone! it's Christmas in July and I have a shaker card (typical of me!) using my new Christmas Lights Shaker Dies and Shine Bright stamp set! I'm having so much fun using these sets.  They lend so many options.  Just wait til you see what my mom did for tomorrow with them!

As you can see I made shakers out of them!  Using Craft Foam and Acetate sheets then added some red and green fine glitter.  Divine Twine is serving as the light cord!

Here you can see the craft foam layered under the card stock and acetate sheet to give them a 3D effect!

Thanks for stopping by today!

God Bless,

birthday balloons...

Hey AJVD fans!!  Rosemary here today with a fun birthday card that I made using the AJVD set Happy Birthday and the AJVD Balloon Trio die set.  I used the current CAS(E) this Sketch layout so I will be posting this in their gallery.

This card is super simple and would be easy to replicate using several of the sentiments in Happy Birthday and different patterned papers or cardstock. It would also be fun to turn one of the balloons into a little shaker element.  For this card I used some patterned papers from the Teresa Collins 6x6 paper pad.  I cut the balloons from three different papers and then used a piece of large striped paper for my main panel.  The sentiment was stamped using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and then the balloons arranged into a little bouquet.  I finished things off with some Ranger Crystal Stickles on the balloons.

Neon Thank You's

Hi, Lisa Lara here today sharing these easy
Neon Thank You's
 You are going to love making these Thank You's they are so quick and easy.
I cut my black panel to 3 3/4" x 5.  Then I used the double stitched die from Top Stitched Borders to make my border. I used little strips of washi tape to hold it in place as I ran it through my Cuttlebug.
Then I heat embossed my sentiment from Merry & Bright stamp set.

I made a liner using Copy paper for the inside.
I stamped this sentiment using Simply Noted: Damask stamp set.

Love Ya...

Happy Day A Jillian Vance Design friends...
Annette Allen here with you today to share some watercoloring.

Today I am playing with A Jillian Vance Design:
I colored with Prima Marketing Inc. Watercolor Pencils (Spring & Fall and The Basics) color collections. Don't you just love this sweet image? I love how awesome these two sets combined together make a sweet card. 

Nothing like sweet images to color and with watercolor.
This was a simple card to make.

Don't be afraid to mix and match your stamp sets.
Thanks for stopping by.
