Shaker Card featuring Hero Arts Mermaid Kisses


Hello everyone and thank you so much for stopping by the blog!  Today, I'm doing a super simple shaker card that I feel packs a big punch.  Whenever you use clean line, symmetrical shapes for your shaker cards, the results are seamless, easy to assemble, and a fun card for your recipient.

I started off the card by making a fun watercolor background and then stenciled over it with Distress Oxides to get the water affect.  While letting that dry, I worked on my mermaid.  She was so fun to color with my alcohol markers!  After that I cut a frame using Lawn Fawn rectangle stitched dies and attached heat resistant acetate so that I could emboss my sentiment on it.
When heat embossing on acetate, remember to move your heat gun around a bit; don't stay too long on one area.  Ask me how I figured THAT one out. lol  Assembly of the card was so easy and came together seamlessly! I used double mounted foam tape on the back of the frame, and then poured these amazing sequins down on my background.  I placed the frame over it and bam...shaker done!
Thank you so much for crafting with us today.  Head over to the shop for some amazing deals and new products!

See-through Circle Card with Lawn Fawn's Slow Down and Enjoy by Mary Polanco

Hello everyone!  I'm so glad you are crafting with us as we have a blast with this super easy, but WOW card!  Today's card features Lawn Fawn's Slow Down and Enjoy Stamps.  I started off the card by stamping and coloring the elephant from the Lawn Fawn Slow Down and Enjoy stamp set. I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color them in both warm greys and cool greys.  (I'm saving the warm grey elephant for a future project).
Once my coloring was complete, I worked on the background and made it as simple as I could.   First I ink blended Distress Oxide in Worn Lipstick to get an ombre look.  Then I put a Hero Arts Stencil over it to get a tone on tone look.  Lastly, I spritzed the panel with water to get a more distressed look.  Once complete I used a circle die to cut through the inked up panel as well as the Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock.
I placed the front and back of my elephant together using foam dots and nestled him into the circle.  I finished off the card by …
