Blossoming Cherry Tree Shaker Card | Simon Says Stamp

Today I am using one of the new stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp’s Fresh Bloom release!

1.jpg

First I stamped the tree from the Blossoming stamp set onto some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with Gina K Amalgam ink. I then colored in the image with Copics and fussy cut it out with scissors.

I created a background panel by blending some Distress Oxide inks onto some Bristol Smooth paper. I blended the colors Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick. I then used my fuse tool to turn the background into a shaker pocket. I used large clear glitter and clear micro pearls from my shaker bits.

I adhered the shaker pocket onto a card base and then glued the tree onto the pocket. For my sentiment I embossed one of the stamps with white embossing powder onto Simon Says Stamp Slate cardstock. I popped the sentiment strip onto the card with foam tape.

For the finishing touched on the card I first randomly added dabs of Glossy Accents to the flowers on the tree and sprinkle Unicorn Dust glitter onto them. I then used a white gel pen to add highlights and details to the tree. Finally I went over the sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter.

Rainbows and Unicorns Shaker | My Favorite Things

Hello my crafty friends! Today I am sharing a fuse tool shaker card using some products from My Favorite Things.

1.jpg

I used Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink and the cloud stencil from My Favorite Things to create a cloudy background panel. I then closed that panel up into a shaker pocket with my fuse tool, adding in some sequins from Lucy’s Cards.

I stamped some of the images from the Rainbows and Unicorns stamp set and colored them in with Copics. I also stamped a sentiment from that set onto Cotton Candy cardstock from Simon Says Stamp and embossed it with Alabaster white embossing powder.

2.jpg

I adhered the shaker pocket to an A2 card base with my ATG gun. I then glued the sentiment strip and the rainbow image along the bottom of the card. I die cut some clouds out of vellum and placed them above the sentiment. I glued the unicorn down over the clouds and onto the card.

To finish up this card I added some highlights to the images with a white gel pen. I then went over all of the clouds with my Wink of Stella glitter brush.

Fuse Tool Shaker Cards | Aqua Pigment Backgrounds

Today I created shaker cards using a Fuse Tool with some awesome (and easy) watercolor backgrounds.

17.jpg

To create the background I added the paint directly to my glass craft mat and then smooshed some Canson watercolor paper into it. I was able to make a ton of background really quickly with this technique and I think they all look really cool.

19.jpg

Next I used my fuse tool to create a pocket around my backgrounds. For the plastic I used some old scrapbooking sleeves I had in my stash. I fused three sides and left one open to add my shaker bits. Once the sequins were inside the pockets I fused up the last side to finish the shaker pocket.

18.jpg

I took the Happy Birthday stamp from the Beautiful Flowers stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and I heat embossing it with Alabaster embossing powder onto a strip of vellum. I then wrapped the vellum around the shaker pocket and adhered it to the back. I added a second smaller sentiment from Simon’s Tiny Words stamp set below the vellum one.

20.jpg

I adhered both of my shaker pockets to A2 size card bases. To finish them up I added some white sequins which I then filled with Glossy Accents.

Brutus Monroe ATC Blog Hop

Welcome friends! I am sharing a really fun project today for the Brutus Monroe blog hop. This blog hop is all about ATCs or Artist Trading Cards. These are small (2.5in x 3.5in) cards that you “art” on and then trade with fellow crafters.

5.jpg

For my ATCs I started with a few pieces of watercolor paper. I then added drops of Aqua Pigment paint to my glass mat and dragged the paper through the paint. I really like the ethereal look that this created.

6.jpg

I cut down the watercolor panels so that I had nine ATCs all together. I then used a fuse tool in order to turn them all into shakers. The plastic that I used for the shakers is actually just scrapbook page holders. I used a variety of different sequins to fill the shakers.

7.jpg

In order to get the sentiments stamped in black onto the shaker plastic I used Staz-on ink. I stamped a lot of the sentiments by using two different colors of ink to create an ombre look. I then went over those sentiments with Icicle embossing ink. I got most of the sentiments that I used from the Super Sentimental stamp set from Brutus Monroe.

8.jpg

I added silver twine in fun ways to each of the ATCs. For a couple of the cards I added additional sentiment strips. I went over those strips with Wink of Stella glitter to give them some sparkle.

Soar Galaxy Bookmark

Purple Bookmark.jpg

This is the final bookmark in the series of bookmarks that I made for my friend Joey. I decided to do another galaxy for this one but with lots of purples instead of multiple colors. I really liked the way that this turned out, it is a little sad that I couldn't keep it. Luckily I have half of the galaxy I created leftover so I could make another one for myself if I want to.

Check out this video to see how I created this bookmark:
