Summer Shaker Card

Hi crafters! Monica here sharing a fun summer shaker card which features: Annie Sunshiny Days!
I used Recollections Chunky Glitter for the inside of the card.
 I then took some acetate and foam tape to make the shaker card.  I used a die from Frantic Stamper for the actual shaker portion of the card.

Easy Panel Card

Saturday, April 22, 2017
Hi crafters!  Monica here  sharing this 3 panel card I made using the Pop Out Flower Corner die from Tutti Designs dies.  
I simply cut the card in 3 separate sections and then used some white cardstock to mat against the black.  This brought out the colors better.

Then I added some red gems to the flower centers to brighten up the look and used a sentiment from some Heartfelt Creations papers.

Easy Distressed Card

Saturday, March 11, 2017

Hi crafters! Today is my first post using the dies from the Tutti Designs February release.   This collection features dies as I would say from the Orient.  You will see a Kimono, a Pagoda which I used for my post today along with some papers from the Graphic 45 "Bird Song" collection which could not be a better match right?!!

So, I went with a more vintage look.  First, I scored some black paper at 5x6.5 then I added a layer of baeige cardstock and used hm... not sure what this thing is, but it is like an old fashioned shaving razor, but with sharp teeth it works beautifully at creating a distressed edge to the paper. 
Then I used some Tim Holtz distress ink in "Walnut Stain" to give it an more distressed look.  Then I used another piece of Graphic 45 paper for an additional layer.  I tore an opening along the top just for a vintage old fashioned or tattered feel.  Then I fussy cut some of the images from the Graphic 45 papers to create the background.  I fussy cut a girl from the Orient and places her behind the Pagoda.  Then added a sentiment and some rhinestone trim to brighten the pagoda!

Here is a closeup where you can really see the pagoda.  I really loved how this turned out!
Really hoping you enjoyed my post and would love to hear your comments.

Hope everyone enjoyed my card and thanks for stopping by!

Any Occasion Card & Foamiran Tutorial

Saturday, March 4, 2017

Hi crafters! Today I am here sharing a card perfect for any occasion using the following Tutti Designs dies: Garden Background TUTTI-170 & Nesting Stitched Rectangles TUTTI-217 . I used some patterned paper from Heartfelt Creations with the Garden die for the background and then I used the stitched rectangle as the focal point on the card for my sentiment and embellishments. Once I diecut the rectangle I embossed the paper to sort of fancy it up...
 For the flower I used some foamiran which yes I have grown addicted to (love this stuff).  I used a flower punch to punch out some flowers as seen below.  Once you have your flower using some tweezers lay each flower on your heated iron.  This causes the foamiran to melt.  As you see in the 4th photo it begins to curl or cup.   
Next form some buds with each flower and then you can ink the centers to give it some added color and depth.  
 For my flowers I used 3 layers.  Unfold each flower bud and with a heat gun adhere them to one another staggering each one. 
 Below is my completed card with everything pieced together.  I added a chipboard sentiment and inked it so it pops off the paper and remember to "Love Life" for it is the only one you have!!!
I hope everyone enjoyed my post and thanks for stopping by!
