“C” the “S”

Today I have another card  for Virginia’s View:layers and dimensions,  ATSM:HOLIDAY CHALLENGE

and CASology:Week 140:Spring


 This card has two layers of watercolor paper, a layer of white stamped with the sentiment and a layer of white vellum. I’m also playing at  The Card Concept #32 {Coral, Aqua, Green & White}. I think my card would probably fit into the “Clean and Layered” category? I’m also playing this over at Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge – Beginnings.

IMG_2664My card has several layers, leaves, watercolor paper popped up with foam tape, and the center from the die cut. I do some more of the smooshed watercolor background papers left, so of course I’ll be playing with those again soon!IMG_2668

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks so much Kristie!

Shaker Donut

I’d like to present a sweet little shaker card to you…..

After making some shaker cards for the first time for Virginia’s View Shaker Challenge, I keep coming up with shaker card ideas. 🙂 They are so much fun!!








There’s lots going on in this little shaker, homemade embossing paste pink hearts (the recipe is in this post), sequins & beads and a little glossy accents glazed donut with sprinkles. I used a SU triple flower punch for the pink frosting, along a small circle punch.

Despite my bottle of Glossy Accents exPLODing all over me and my table, I had a lot of fun making this card. I’m playing this card at Curtain Call’s Donut Delight Challenge and SSS’s Wednesay Challenge: Simon Says Add A Little Texture.
