She Believed She Could

Today's card for The Rubber Cafe is another glittery shaker card!

I used the January It's A New Year Kit Of The Month for this card.  I created a shaker box using white cardstock and the designer papers in the kit and foam tape.   I filled the shaker box with the sequins in the kit as well as a dusting of Diamond Clear Cool Highlight You're So Fine Glitter.

I stamped the images and colored them with Copic Markers:  BG23, T6, T4, T2.  I added some accents with the Sakura Stardust Pen.  I used the tape included in the kit to ground my image and frame my sentiment.

The sentiment on the acetate is stamped with Stazon ink.

Rose Thoughts....

It's Wednesday and I have another Fred, She Said card for you featuring the sentiment from the Carnation Plus Bonus Sentiments set.  This time I paired it up with the rose from the Corner Rose set.

I decided to add some paper embroidery to this card, so I used my Stampin Up! template and I also used the Stampin Up! Subtles Candy Dots along my stitched border.

The heart button was in my stash for some time, but is no more!

You Put The Happy In My Day!

It's Tuesday and I have an Endless Creations card to share with you today.  I got on a roll with making these flowers.  I stamped the BB15 Retro Daisy Open on various colors of cardstocks and then accented each one with Copic Markers.  Then I added white Signo gel pen accents to each blossom.  I did hand cut these blossoms out since I do not own the scan n cut machine...but it really doesn't take long and I enjoy such endeavors!

The leaves are from the EE46 KB's Lily of the Valley stamp.  I just colored them up and then cut them apart to create my leafy border.

The sentiment is D211 Happy in my Day.   The embossing folder is from cArt Us.

Hello Snowman!

Hello!  I'm blogging for Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps today....and how cute is this happy chap?
The sentiment is from CLR023A Mini Butterflies 2.  I colored HH0106 Pine Cones ATC and  FF0121 Snowman Postage with Copic markers and matted them up.  A touch of faux stitching and some twine finish the card.

Be sure to pop on over to the Prickley Pear blog for some more great inspiration!

Live, Dance, Laugh!

Michelle here with a glittery Valentine card for you today!  I used glitter in two ways on this card and it is really blingy and sparkly in real life.

For the base of my card, I ran Scor-tape around the edge of the cardstock base and then covered it with some Art Institute Red Rose Opaque Glitter.  The embossing folder is from cArt Us and is the perfect contrast for this card.

I stamped the EE0057 Jaco Bean Heart 2 with Stazon ink on acetate.  I then glittered the back of the acetate with Green Briar, Pink Smoothie and Baby's Breath Art Institute Glitters.  I cut the images out and then popped them onto the card with glue dots.

The FF0018 Live, Dance Laugh sentiment is one of my favorites, perfect for birthdays or just thinking of you type days. 

Thanks for popping by!  There are new stamps coming keep your eye on our blog for your first peek of the new release!!

Holly Berry House Revisted

It has been a long while since I made a card with Holly Berry House medallions.  This one I embossed in silver on Certainly Celery cardstock and then accented it with various Copic Markers in green tones.  I added some clear gems to finish the piece.

The embossing folder is from Cuttlebug and is done on white shimmer cardstock.  The pops of green cardstock are some shimmery Bazzill scraps.    Sentiment is typed up on the computer.

Thanks for taking a peek!

Collage Card

Today's card is a whole bunch of nothing! 

~The tag is from some clothes...I sewed it on the card with some fun paper embroidery detailing.
~The brad is from some school project the kids brought home and didn't want to keep.
~The buttons are from some craft projects and have been laying around here for eons.
~The music is a scrap of vintage sheet music from my scrap bin.
~The gold designer paper was a tiny scrap from a prior card project.
~The burlap pieces are also scraps frome a prior card....way to fun to toss out.
~And funniest of all is the zipper tab that I picked up on the ground somewhere. 

Do you ever make no-stamp cards in this fun collage style?
