#Friends #Selfie shaker card

Hi everyone,

Well it's another hot, humid beautiful day here after quite a thunderstorm last night. The air conditioning is off, the windows are open and the wonderful summer breeze is blowing through the house quite freely. Love it!

Today's card I am sharing is for the Simon Says Stamp 'Splatter It' challenge here.

I used a couple of fairly new Lawn Fawn stamp and die sets and some distress ink to create my shaker card.

I created the frame using the SSS stitched rectangle die set to frame my selfie photo. Used some plaid paper to die cut the selfie frame.
The background piece was done blending some distress inks together.
Stamped the elephant and mouse and coloured with Copics.

Arranged the frame pieces, added some tiny glass beads and then added the frame with some foam tape to create the shaker. Before that I added some splatter with teal spray.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi everyone,

Well it's been a while since my last post. Have been working on the kitchen, had a mini vacation and just enjoying the summer although the weather has not been very nice at all. As a matter of fact there is a lovely thunder shower going on right now. The tile guy is in the kitchen installing the backsplash (which is the final touch in my complete new kitchen) so hubby has gone to pick up some lunch.

In the meantime I have a card to share using some new Lawn Fawn products.

Watercolured the background piece in 2 different colours and added some Pearl shimmer. I then used an embossing folder to add a little texture. I think it looks like waves.
Die cut the Aloha 3 times and the palm tree top and layered the whole panel on to some patterned paper.
Added some finishing touches with Nuvo accents.

Hi everyone,

Today's card was created using a SSS stencil for the background and 2 different Altenew stamp and die sets.

I started by creating my background using the Diagonal stripe stencil from Simon Says Stamp and 2 different distress inks.
I taped the stencil to my work surface and applied one colour first then turned the stencil once and created the other colour of stripes going in the opposite direction. Die cut the whole panel with a wonky rectangle die.

Stamped and die cut the leafs with different green inks. Stamped and die cut the flower and coloured with Copics. I then added some little white dots to the flower with a gel pen.

The sentiment was stamped and die cut. Added some green accents with Nuvo crystal drops to my card and Wink of Stella to the flower.

Well that's it for today.

Birthday wishes

Hi everyone,

Today I have a card for the current SSS challenge to add a Bit of Sparkle here.

I used a Tim Holtz stencil and blended the background using 2 distress inks overlapping the colours and then die cut the panel using a stitched rectangle die. For my sentiment I used some double sided tape and added some copper glitter to that and rubbed it in with my fingers. I used a SSS die to cut out the sentiment and added it to my card. Added some Nuvo crystal drops and popped up the whole panel with some foam tape and added that to an orange piece of cardstock.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by,
