Creating Shaker Cards with Queen & Co.

Hello everyone!! I’m happy to be here today to share some super cute shaker cards from Queen & Co. with you.

Queen & Co.

It’s been a long time since I created shaker cards, so this was so much fun to do. Once I started I couldn’t stop. I love that type of crafting. The ideas just flow because the company made it that easy for me.

Let’s take a look at the cards I created:

Fruit Basket Kit

I told you once I started I couldn’t just make one card. I had to make three. I used the Fruit Basket Kit for all of the cards created.

The kit contains:

(9) Fruit Theme Dies

(1) 6×6 Paper Pad with 24 sheets

(3) Yards of Twine

(15) Coordinating Foam Fruit Shapes with Acetate

Droplet Stickers (Watermelon Seeds)

Exclusive Fruit Toppings

Exclusive Sentiment Stamp Set

Epoxy Dot Stickers

 

With all of these goodies, you can make 15 of cards from one kit. Very cost effective.

Let’s take an individual look at them:

Lemon Card

I have to admit, my favorite of the three, is the lemon card. It’s so cute and I was able to make a clutch bag to go with it.

Fruit Basket Kit

I love the look of the lemons. They are fun and bright. They just cheer up a dull room. Plus, I love the taste of them.

My plan is to send this bag and card to my dear friend Wanda! She is amazing and is so deserving of a thank you!

Let’s zoom in:

Fruit Basket Kit

Did you see the lemon shaker pieces? I love them!!

Creating this card and the others was easy because Queen & Co kit their products with everything you need to create this card.

Strawberry Card

Fruit Basket Kit

Delicious!! I love the mix and match of the colors and the patten paper. The pattern paper included in the kit is double sided so it easy to mix and match the different pattens by color.

Fruit Basket Kit

Take a look at the tiny strawberry shakers/toppings. Aren’t they cutes? They make me want to eat strawberries right now.

Apple card

This apple card is perfect for teachers. Teachers would love this fun interactive card.

Fruit Basket Kit

The sentiment stamp set in this kit is fabulous. All of the sentiments are fun-loving. They match perfectly with each fruit.

Again, the shaker pieces just adds to the beauty of the card.

So what do you think? Will you give Queen & Co. a try? How about creating some shaker cards for your next project. Let me know.

Altenew May 2019 Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s May 2019 Stencil Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the new stencils.  If you arrived here from the talented Laurie Willison blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Let’s take a look at my wall calendar:

Illusion Spiral Stencil

Wow, I love this calendar page! I used the Illusion Spiral Stencil for this amazing effect. I was playing around with it and decided to try it on my wall calendar. I’m glad I did.

Decorating this wall calendar page was a breeze. Adhere the stencil where you want the image with purple tape and add color with a blending tool. Nothing to it.

My style is clean and simple so adding only two spirals that looks different allowed me to maintain that style.

To add texture, I add a couple of acetate die cut butterflies, green fields enamel dots and stamped a sentiment from the fancy greeting stamp set.

Altenew May 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil/Ink/Enamel Pin Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s May 2019 Pin Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the new stamps, die, stencil, ink and enamel pins.  If you arrived here from the talented Vicky Papaioannou blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Let’s take a look at my gift boxes:

Ombre Alpha

With Mother’s Day around the corner and two of my coworkers celebrating their birthday, I thought it was fitting to use the new stamp set and pretty paper to create super cute gift boxes.

I used Altenew’s new Ombre Alpha stamp set and the beautiful Blushing Blooms Paper Pack to create these tiny gift boxes.

Here’s how to create these gift boxes:

Pick 4 different patterned papers from the Blushing Blooms Paper Pack.

Use the envelope punch board to create the box shape. The only need these ruler measurements:

Set the 6×6 paper at the 1.5 measurements and punch. Then slide the paper down to the 4 measurements and punch.

Now all you have to do is turn the paper 90 degrees and slide the paper to the first score line punch and score and slide down to the second score line and do the same thing.

Repeat for the remaining side.

Then you want to cut the scoreline on the side of the box that has the bigger tabs. Cut just to the first score lines and repeat on the other side.

Fold the box adhere with tape and your finished.

For the tag, use the Mini MISTI to stamp the letters and use a tag punch to punch them out. I used a retired Stampin’ Up! punch.

Video:

Let’s take a look at some close-ups:

These two boxes are for my coworkers. They celebrated their birthday last week and I wanted to surprise them with a small token to celebrate them.

Ombre Alpha

I metal stamped the heart and created a necklace for each of them. The gift tag is a great addition to this little box.

Ombre Alpha

Here’s what the boxes look like from the top. They are nice and compact, perfect for a nice small gift. Each has tissue paper in them.

The other two are for my sisters, for Mother’s Day!

Ombre Alpha

So what do you think? Would you create cute boxes like this?

One last look:

Altenew April 2019 Washi Tape/Embossing Paste Release Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s April 2019 Washi Tape/Embossing Paste Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the new washi tape and embossing paste.  If you arrived here from the talented Alex Syberia blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Let’s take a look at my planner page:

Embossing Paste

I love decorating my planner with card making supplies. Altenew’s new Embossing Paste looks amazing on these pages.

Here’s how I created the two-tone color butterfly:

Embossing Paste

Scoop out a small amount of the embossing paste on a piece of disposable plastic (I used a zip bag, it was on my desk).

Then I added a small amount of color from the Puffy Heart Ink Spray and Sunkissed Metallic Shimmer Ink spray to the embossing paste and mixed it in.

Place the Flowing Butterfly Stencil where you want the image and apply the color paste evenly.

Gently pick up the stencil to see the image.

Embossing Paste

Stamp the sentiment from the Reason to Smile stamp set above and/or below the image.

Embossing Paste

Let’s take another look:

Embossing Paste

I also created a bookmark for my planner as well, using the same method as before.

Embossing Paste

Here’s a close up. Look at that texture and depth.
