Shaker Card – Sketch and Color Challenge #54

I’m here today with Your Next Stamp (YNS) and the Sketch and Color Challenge #54 and my final post as a DT member.

I’ve been on this team for the past year and a half.  I had an amazing time. Karen has been amazing and her design are super cute and fun to work with.   I’ve made some great friend with my fellow design team members.  Deciding to step down was a hard decision to make but a much needed one for me.

I will continue to support Your Next Stamp and because a participant in these challenges, LOL!! That will be fun.

Each challenge has a sketch and a color combo to choose from.

Take a look at the color combo:

Hero Arts Shaker Tag – a2z Scrapbooking December 2016 Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a a2z Scrapbooking Challenge. The theme this month is Anything but a Card!!

anthing-but-a-card-banner

Take a look at my tag:

Here is how I created this tag:

I gather all of my supplies needed to create a tag:  Hero Arts Joyful Tiding Tag Set, Hero Arts Raspberry Ink, Hero Arts Black Ink, Lucy Abrams Ivory Sequin, We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool, We R Memory Keepers Photo Sleeves,  and Tombow Mono Adhesive Plus, We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-dile and a ColorBox Art Dauber.

I die cut three tags so that I could stack them on top of each other.  Then I used the sponge dauber to add some color using the Hero Arts Raspberry Jam Ink.

Once the top tag was inked to my liking, I adhered the two additional tags with Tombow Mono Adhesive Plus.

Once all of the pieces were in place, I used the Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment on the tag.

Now the tag is ready to become a shaker.

I gathered all of the supplies need to create the shaker portion of the tag.

You need a We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool, We R Memory Keepers Fuseable Photo Sheets.

Place the finished tag inside the plastic and line the die up over it.  Use Washi tape to hold it down.  Then you want to glide the fuse tool around the die, sealing it.

Once you add the sequin is added inside, seal the top of the tag the same way you did the body of the tag.

Punch a hole using a We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-dile and string a piece of string.

Nice and easy! Super cool to create!

YNS Feature Day – Favorite Technique

Hello everyone!!!  I’ here today with another YNS creation to inspire you and a chance to win a stamp set of your choice!!

On the 22nd of the month, YNS Design Team creates more samples featuring YNS products and shares them with all of you!!

The super duper awesome part of it all besides our awesome samples, you could win a stamp set of your choice!!  Now how super cool is that!!

Scroll to the bottom to find out how!!

This month we are focusing on “Favorite Technique”!!  The DT created projects related to the technique they love the most.

My favorite technique is creating shaker cards/tags. I love creating the shaker pockets.  Its so much fun and relaxing.

Now take a look at the card I created to inspire you:

happy-halloween-shaker-tag-yns

YNS Supplies: SpookTacular Halloween Stamp Set, Scallop Circle Die Set,Happy Haunting Die Set

Other Supplies: Little Things Spider’s Web Sequin, Vellum, Clearsnap Colorbox Black Embossing Powder, We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool, We R Memory Keepers Fuseables Clear Sheets, Small safety pin, We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile, Black Ribbon, Versamark, Tombow Mono Adhesive

Creating this simple tag was super easy to do.  I used the fuse tool to trace the outside of the scallop circle die to seal the edges, leaving a small opening.  I die cut the ghost and added them plus the sequin inside the scallop fuseable sheet.  After that I sealed the scalloped sheet.  Then I used the Crop-A-Dile to punch a hole and added the ribbon.

Now its time to add the sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and sprinkled black embossing powder on top. I heat set it and adhered it to the front of the shaker pocket with Tombow Mono Adhesive.

What do you think?  Would you give this technique a try? Let me know below.

Now on to that prize!!
