Sunflower Perch Shaker


What better way to start off a Monday than with a shaker card, I used this new Sunflower Perch from Stampendous.  The pretty scenic background scene looks so nice framed by the shaker, it's a real focal point.

Here's how I made my card-
  • Stamp Sunflower Perch with black ink on white cardstock and color with Prisma colored pencils.
  • Die-cut a blue frame using a rectangle die.
  • Use the Fitted Frames B Die Set and cut a panel from yellow cardstock and stamp a background using the Grunge Script Set and Butterscotch ink. Glue this to a top folding blue card.
  • Glue acetate to the underside of the rectangle frame, apply foam tape around all edges.  Sprinkle shaker bits in the center of the Sunflower Perch panel and place the frame over this.
  • Tie ribbon around the card and glue the shaker panel to the card.

Alligator Hugs


Hi there, Jamie here today with a card to send to friends we haven't been able to see for a while to let them know that we're thinking of them.  Green is my favorite color and it goes so well with the pinks from the Color Fuse Ink Set #5 and with a touch of black, the card really pops!

Here's how my card was made-
  • Stamp  Gator on watercolor paper with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink and color with Inktense Pencils  #100, #1530, #1540 and use the matching die-cut to cut out.
  • Stamp Wood Fence on white cardstock Color Fuse Ink #5 and use a blending brush to add a lighter shade of pink ink to the panel.
  • Die-cut the panel using the largest die from the Nested Rectangle Small Stitched Die Cut Set and glue this to a black card.
  • Take a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of white cardstock, hold it over the right side diagonally until you get the look that you like and while holding it, cut off the excess paper hanging off of the right side and bottom.
  • Use the Watercolor Background Set and the two lightest colors from the Color Fuse Ink Set #5 to stamp the watercolor image on the bottom of the white cut panel.
  • Glue this panel to the Wood Fence panel leaving some of the pink showing on the right side.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Kittie Says Phrases #1 Set on a pink strip of cardstock with black ink and glue to the white panel.
  • Use the Hugs #2 Die Cut to cut hugs out of black cardstock and glue above the white panel.
  • Pop up the cut-out Gator on the card using foam squares and add a few self-adhesive rhinestones.
