Birthday Balloons Fuse Tool Shaker

Hello friends! Today I have a fun fuse tool shaker card to share with you! This card features some stamps from the Party Like a Panda stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.

To begin I took a piece of Canson watercolor paper and blended across is with a few different colors of Distress Oxide inks. The colors I used are Tumbled Glass, Seedless Preserves, Worn Lipstick, and Squeezed Lemonade.

I sprinkled clean water onto my Distress Oxide background and soaked it up with a paper towel. This lifts up some spots of ink across the panel. Next I took Brutus Monroe Aqua Pigment in the color Pearl and splatted some drops of that onto the panel. To finish up the background I added even more splatters with some of the Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide ink.

I took the Party Like a Panda set and picked out the balloon sentiment. I stamped that onto vellum with Versamark ink and embossed it with Alabaster embossing powder. Next I took the Birthday sentiment and stamped it onto some white cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I fussy cut both of those sentiments out with scissors. For the last sentiment I picked out one of the smaller one, embossed it in white on black cardstock, and cut it into a strip.

Using my Fuse Tool I turned my background panel into a shaker pocket. I filled that pocket with some large clear glitter and clear micropearls. Once it was closed up I adhered it to an A2 size card base with my ATG gun. I then glued all of the sentiments to the front with a combination of both liquid adhesive and foam tape.

For the finishing touches on this card I first went over the balloon letters with Copic markers to give them some color. I then went over them with Nuvo Crystal Glaze to give them dimension. Using my Wink of Stella glitter brush I added sparkle to the other two sentiments. Finally I added some sequins around the sentiments white I then filled with the Crystal Glaze.

I started my card by stamping a ton of the balloons from the Party Balloons stamp set onto some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with Distress Oxide ink. The colors I used are Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, Wild Honey, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, and Tumbled Glass. I cut the balloons out using the coordinating die set.

I created a frame out of white cardstock using a rectangle die and glued a piece of acetate to the back of it. I then glued a row of balloons along the top edge of the frame. Next I took an A2 size panel of white cardstock and blended some clouds on it using a cloud stencil and a light gray ink. I glued another row of balloons on that panel.

I used some doubled up foam tape on the edges of my frame to create a shaker are and filled it up with clear sequins and micro pearls. I closed up the shaker with the cloud panel. For the sentiment I used the Happy Birthday die set from Pink and Main. I also embossed a few smaller sentiments from the Birthday Script stamp set and popped them up on the card.

For the finishing touches on the card I used my Wink of Stella glitter brush on the sentiment strips and I also added a few sequins on the front of the shaker.

You're So Very Kind | Reverse Confetti

Hello crafty friends! I have another card to show you today using some of the products in Reverse Confetti’s most recent release!

1.jpg

First I stamped the adorable critter from the Heart Pals stamp set and colored it in using Copic markers. I cut him out using the coordinating die set.

I picked out a piece of patterned paper from the From Cupid paper pad and cut it down to 4.25 x 5.5. I adhered that panel to an A2 card base. I then cut a panel of white cardstock to be slightly smaller than the A2 base. I cut a square window out of the top half of the white panel and then popped it up on the card base with foam tape.

2.jpg

For the sentiment I picked out a stamp from the Patterned Hearts stamp set and embossed it with white embossing powder on black cardstock. I then popped up the sentiment strip onto the card with foam tape. I also popped up the little cat image in the window on the card.

To finish up the card I went over the sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter. I also added some highlights to my colored in image with a white gel pen. Finally I added a few sequins using liquid glue.
