I made a shaker card using the new Seas The Day stamp set and the coordinating Seas The Day dies.
I started the card out by stamping, and copic coloring the cute Octopus and Turtle from the set, along with the starfish and some coral and greenery.
Then I die cut the Octopus, Turtle and starfish. 
Next, I die cut several frames (about 10), made with the two largest Stitched Rounded Rectangles Dies, to create a window for the shaker. I also die cut two of the largest Stitched Rounded Rectangles for the background and the inside of the card. Next, I suspended the Octopus and Turtle inside the shaker frame using some clear thread, they can move around just a bit. I stamped the bubbles on the background using some coordinating ink. Then I added the background panel to a A2 card base, followed by the shaker frame with the suspended Octopus and Turtle. Next, I took some Heat Resistant Acetate and embossed the "Seas the Day" sentiment in white from the set. I added some sequins and seed beads to the shaker window before layering the acetate and two more frames on top of that.

The Octopus and Turtle move around the shaker card
just a bit, its a really fun card.

The sentiment is a little hard to see in pictures, so here is a close up of it. I hope you were inspired today!! Shaker cards are so much fun and the possibilities are endless!!

Summer time is definitely a time for several occasions, Graduations, Family Reunions, Weddings, Vacations, etc. So for my card today, I made a bridal shower card to help inspire for all the weddings coming up. I used the Congrats Die on this one.

First, I dry embossed the white glitter cardstock with the Next Level embossing folder in Heart, then layered the purple dotted paper and die cut the heart window. I also die cut the heart window out of a white top folding card base. Then, I added some sparkly white tulle to the heart window and surrounded that with score tape, to act as a window for the shaker elements. Next, I added some iridescent, silver, clear, and purple sequins mixed to the tulle window and sealed it. I added the panel to the card base. Then I added the "Congrats" that I die cut twice in Silver glitter and white across the heart window. Then I popped up the bra and panties that I cut out with the Cricut from the Forever Young cartridge in black and purple. Finally, I added some Sparkle pen and a rhinestone to the bra.

For my card, I used a few newly released products The Scoop stamp set, The Scoop coordinating Dies, Beach Bum 6x6 paper pad, Hello Die and the Stitched Rounded Rectangles Die to create my Red, White and Blue card.

I started the card by stamping, coloring and die cutting the boy with the ice cream cone from The Scoop stamp set and die. Next, I die cut a rectangle window out of the white card front panel with the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die then  I added the sentiment "What's the Scoop?" to the bottom of the window in black ink. Then, I embossed the panel with a We Are Memory Keepers Next Level folder- Dotted. I popped up the panel on a white card base and added some of the navy patterned paper from the Beach Bum 6x6 paper pad to the window and added the cute boy on the top.
I die cut the Hello from white and red card stock for dimension and added it to the top of the card. Finally, I finished the card with some enamel dots after I added the boy to the window.


I always try to add a little something to the inside of the card and I added a strip of the patterned paper and a colored and die cut ice cream cone from the set.

For my cards today, I used the new Aloha Pineapple stamp set, Aloha Pineapple coordinating dies and the Shades of Spring 6x6 paper pad.

I used several colors of inks to stamp out two of the cute pineapples from the set and added a face to each one, then I die cut them with the coordinating dies. Then I stamped the heart in several colors to coordinate. Next, I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiments from the set. I added some burlap to kraft card bases then added the pineapples to the top of the burlap. Then I added the hearts and a few drops of coordinating Nuvo crystal and glitter drops. 



I used some of the orange chevron patterned paper from the Shades of Spring 6x6 paper pad for the sentiment on this card.

For my project, I made a fun 2x2 Mini Album using several products from this month's Pink and Main release, along with the Xyron Create a Sticker Max, 1.5in. Sticker Maker and the Wedge Shaped Permanent Glue stick.



I started the mini album by using a Lori Whitlock svg, a 2x2 accordion mini album, that I cut with the Cricut Explore Air 2 out of the Beach Babe 6x6 paper pad and a few other coordinating card stocks. Then I ran those pieces to adhere them through the Create a Sticker Max and built my album, the few pieces that only needed a little bit of adhesive, I used the Wedge shaped glue stick and built the album.


Next, I went on to decorate the cover. I stamped, colored and die cut the images from the Sending Waves stamp set and the Sending Waves Dies. I stamped and die cut the sentiment in white and used the Stitched Rounded Rectangles die (Smallest One).


The pages all together in the accordion album. 
The pages are simply decorated to leave plenty of room for journaling, pictures, stickers, etc. I used the Stitched Rounded Square Die to create some journaling spots from some lined project life cards. The album has about 5 of these spots.



I also used The Scoop stamp set and The Scoop Coordinating Dies. I also used the Stitched Rounded Rectangles die for the sentiment from the set. How cute are these images?!? The Create a Sticker Max was perfect to add all these images to the album.







For the back of the album, I added a Stitched Rounded Rectangle Die in white to add the name and date.

Front and back covers.
This little album came out so cute and I think it will be perfect for our kids to record their summer memories in!

For my card today, I used the newly released Congrats Die and Coordinating Congrats Stamp Set, perfect for all occasions and it coordinates great with so many other Pink and Main stamps. I started the card by die cutting several of the "Congrats" from white cardstock for the background, then die cut it in silver shimmer card stock with the layer piece in Vellum card stock. I layered the two pieces together and adhered it to a white panel. Next, I stamped the coordinating sentiment right below it in black ink. Then I added the white die cut congrats to the rest of the background, for a tone on tone look. Finally, I added some gold glitter die cut hearts and some clear sequins to finish the card off. I added the panel to a top folding white card base.

Woo-Hoo!!! Today is my crafty BFFs, Stacey's Birthday!!!
So of course, I had to make a fun card using a couple of her favorite companies to go with her gifts.
I hope you have an amazing day my awesome friend!!!
Eat some yummy stuff and be a queen for the day!!

For Stacey's card, I used one of the card bases she sent me to try out, Mermaid card stock (Lawn Fawn) for the base layer, I used the Perfectly Plaid Rainbow 6x6 (Lawn Fawn) die cut with the Basic Set die (Mama Elephant). I also cut the coordinating layer in white card stock and I heat embossed in silver the "Make a Wish" sentiment from the Make a Wish stamp set (My Favorite Things) toward the bottom of the panel. Then I die cut the cake layers from the Interactive Birthday cake die (MFT) in purple and from the Under The Sea 6x6 (Doodlebug Design). I had to cut this piece twice because the first time it was upside down!! That's okay, I used it on the second card. I'm not about wasting from my mistakes, especially precious DB paper!! I die cut the candles from white card stock and copic colored them and added them to the cake top. I used some pearlescent teal cardstock for the pull tab for the slider. I added some Nuvo Glitter drops in White Blizzard to the cake and candles, I think it looks like pretty sparkly frosting. I even added some droplets around the card and some sparkling clear 4mm sequins (Pretty Pink Posh.) 

This is the card with the cake slider up to reveal the second layer, isn't that just so fun?
I love it!

This is my second card, made with my "whoops" cut out!!! Hahaha!
Upside down scallops, why not?! :)
I just used an orange card base from Lawn Fawn- Fake Tan.


Thank you so much for stopping by!!

Have a wonderful day everyone!

For my card, I used the Need Coffee stamp set, which also has newly released coordinating Need Coffee dies too!! I started with a white top folding card base, next I layered some fun coordinating coffee themed patterned paper from Doodlebug Design then used the Stitched Rounded Rectangles Die (Largest one) to die cut the background. Then I added a doily cut in half to look like a rug for the girls to stand on. Then I stamped the sentiment on the bottom half of the doily in dark brown ink. Next, I stamped and colored the girl with black, copic friendly ink, I colored her hair, curlers and skin with copics. I paper pieced the rest of the image with coordinating papers and added some white gel pen accents, glitter brush pen and some glossy accents and popped the girl up with some foam adhesive. Then I finished the card with some enamel accents.

For my Summer inspired card, I used the new Too Cool Stamp set and coordinating dies from the May 2017 release.

I stamped and colored the bear with the ice cream and then paper pieced his cute shirt. I used paper from the Shades of Spring 6x6 paper pad, I die cut a dark blue rectangle from the stack with the Stitched Rectangle die then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from the set in white on the bottom. Then I popped up the bear on the rectangle. I cut some large fishtail banners to the card base, one shorter than the other to a side folding A2 card and round the corners on one side. I added all the layers to the card then finished the bear with some glossy accents and sprinkles to his ice cream with several different colors of Glaze pens.

Then I finished the card off with some bright and colorful enamel dots.

Hi Everyone!
Today I am sharing a second card as a Guest Designer for Gerda Steiner Designs.
I made another summer inspired card using the
Pool Piggies 4x6 clear stamp set.


For the card, I started by water coloring a piece of water color cardstock with several blue distress inks then added some water droplets, finally I sprayed it with some shimmer mist to sparkle. This will be the water part of the river for the pig to float on.
Then, I took some kraft card stock and die cut it with some wavy border dies to look like the beach or shore, depending on where the river is, I added some dots with copic markers to look like sand. I also double stamped the sentiment in two colors of ink, with a misti stamp tool, in tan and brown.
Next, I stamped and colored the pig, then I stamped the round float and ball on some patterned paper and paper pieced the float.




I added some glossy accents to the ball, pig to look
like water droplets and to the fish for bubbles.
Then I added some stickers to the card for some accents.
The pig looks like he is having fun and so relaxed!!
Thanks again to Gerda and Macy for
letting me be a guest designer.
I hope to have inspired you !

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!
