#589 – A Precious Shaker Card

Hello! Continuing withΒ Winnie and Walter 3rd Birthday Celebrations, I made a few more cards this weekend. I’ll post them one by one. The first one is shaker card, made using Winnie & Walter My Precious and Scenery: Stripes stamp sets.

You Are Precious To Me

I used MISTI to stamp the gems on a card panel. The first time I am using MISTI for this purpose – I usually just eyeball and stamp.. and I have only used MISTI when I need to stamp the image twice.. or some special cases.. So anyway, easy to see how pretty it came out. Once done, I stamped the stripes and then the sentiment on another panel using MISTI too. I then adhered these together to make the shaker, finally adhering it to the card base.

You Are Precious To Me

This card goes to the following challenges from the Winnie and Walter 3rd Birthday Celebrations –

#588 – Seize the Birthday – Inlay Diecuts

Hello and welcome to a new challenge at Seize The Birthday! The topping this time is to use Inlay Die Cuts. But if you don’t prefer that, you can choose to go without the topping, and just make a Birthday card. Choice is yours! πŸ™‚

Seize The Birthday - The Toppings

Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes

Joining us once again is our Suprise Party Guest Rahmat!

And here’s my inspiration card –

Happy Birthday

I made a very simple card for your inspiration. I first die cut the sentiment, took it out, then the flowers, one by one. I then watercolored them all, and placed them back together.

Happy Birthday

To finish my card, I placed the panel on the card base with a strip of striped washi tape on the side. I also added Nuvo Glossy drops in Buttercup for embellishing.

Stop over the Seize the Birthday blog and checkout more amazing inspiration from the rest of the DT and from Rahmat! And don’t forget to play along!

#587 – Love & Adore You

Hello! I loved making the card last time, with flowers, made from vellum pieces stacked above each other; and thought of making another using the same idea. I also tried making it vintage, but this one ended up looking vintage-ish..hmm… but I really do love how it has turned out! πŸ˜€

Love & Adore You

I first heat embossed the heart and flowers with gold embossing powder on vellum, which I then colored using Zig brush markers. I colored the flowers underneath the vellum last time, this time, I added it on the top – any case, you’ll have to wait for it to dry anyway! πŸ˜‰ I then fussy cut them out. The sentiment, I cut from a cardstock, which I had painted with gold acrylic paint – it looks beautiful with the gold embossing – not too overpowering, but still shiny enough to stand out! πŸ™‚ I am glad I used it too! Well, I also did stack it with a few layers before adding it to the card. Assembly was mostly easy, once I knew where to place what!

Here’s the supply list:
Neat & Tangled Heart of Gold stamp
Simon Says Stamp Sketch Ranunculus stamp
My Favorite Things Love & Adore You die
My Favorite Things Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle die
DCWV Fresh Floral Stack pattern paper

I used Basically Essential stencil with some white embossing paste for the background, topping it with flowers from Winnie & Walter’s In Bloom: Addie’s Garden. The flowers are vellum, with white heat embossed images, colored using Zig brush markers. I trimmed them, then arranges them with the sentiment from Stamplorations Amazing die and a tiny ‘you’re’ from Winnie & Walter’s The Big, The Bold and Party.

#585 – Happy 3rd for Winnie & Walter & Happy 300 for Friday Inspiration File

whew…that’s a long title…!! πŸ˜€

But that’s what this post is for – celebrating two fantastic achievements! I wanted to take part in these, by, of course, playing with their challenges! πŸ™‚

A very big congratulations to Winnie and Walter for completing a very successful 3 years and a big congrats to Kara Vrabel (of K and R Designs) in giving us 300 weeks of inspiration by way of her Friday Inspiration Files!!Β  I am a big fan of both the company and the lady! And I’ve made a couple of cards to be a part of both challenges. Showing the first one here –

Hello Friend

I made this card inspired by…quite a few things, actually. πŸ˜‰ First, I was inspired by Aga’s card (Week 265), then I wanted the card to have three colors, and got the perfect set of colors with the Seven Hills Crafts Challenge this month. I got the perfect stamp set too – Winnie and Walter’s In Bloom: Eva’s Favorite Flowers. This stamp set is just perfect when you want to make anything geometrical! Love it!! πŸ™‚

Aga #265:

So, after drawing some light pencil lines for reference, I eye balled and stamped all the images, finally coming to the sentiment. I was super tempted to add dimension or even embellishing (it really is tough for me to make such a super CAS card!!) but I left it be.. Oh, and I did add that circle using a green gel pen from Uniball… I wish they had every color I wanted, the pens are great!

Hello Friend

Well wrapping off – I am submitting the card to the following challenges –
