Floral Shaker Card | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy March! One of the busiest months of the year for me, and I feel like I’m already playing catch up as I completely forget that I was supposed to post this card today! So here we are posting after dinner, before finishing the dishes and finishing up a project due tomorrow!

I might be running behind on blogging, but I am ahead of the seasons with a Mother’s Day card! I used some of my favorite floral stamps from Newton’s Nook Designs, I have a feeling they will be making more appearances on the blog in the next couple of months!

To create this card, I started by dry embossing the Basketweave Stencil on to an A2 sheet of cardstock, then cut a large circle out of the panel using the Circle Frames Die Set, and backed it with acetate to be the shaker front. Next I stamped and embossed the Floral Roundabout Stamp Set in white and ink blended over it using Distress Oxide Inks (in x, y, and z). I filled the shaker with coordinating sequins.

Next, I stamped and colored the image from the Daffodils Stamp Set using copic markers and die cut it using the coordinating Daffodils Die Set. I added it to the front of the shaker and finished off the card with the “Happy Mother’s Day” sentiment, stamped from the Mom & Dad Stamp Set onto a stitched banner die cut from the Banner Trio Die Set.

Rainbow Birthday Wishes | Lawn Fawnatics #116

Happy Sunday! Popping in quickly to share a quick, no stamping card inspired by the latest Lawn Fawnatics challenge – “Let’s Celebrate!

This card was inspired by my “no buy” challenge along with Carly’s latest card.

To create this card, I started by inking up a A2 piece of Bristol Smooth card stock to create a rainbow using distress oxide inks (in Shaded Lilac, Salvage Patina, Twisted Citron, Spiced Marmalade, Abandoned Coral, Kitsch Flamingo).

Next I embossed an A2 card front using the Echo Park Stencil – Birthday Balloons and then die cut the Giant Happy Birthday die from Lawn Fawn. I backed the embossed, die cut sheet with some acetate, and using the positive die cut as a guide, I adhered the pieces to the acetate.

Lastly, I backed the shaker front with foam tape and filled it with star sequins and added the rainbow inked background.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope y’all have a great rest of the week!

Books, Coffee and Snowfall | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Friday crafty friends! Hope you’re all having a great start to the new year. Popping in this Friday to share my first Newton’s Nook Designs card as them as part of their design team this year. Chase card is inspired by unusually, unexpected levels of snowfall in the Northwest this past December. We did not have a white Christmas, but we had lots of snow to make up for it through New Year’s.

To create this card I started by stamping the image of the girl from the Sips & Stories Stamp Set and colored it using copic markers (R05, 08, 14, 17, 22; Y15, 35; B02, 05; C00, 5, 7; E13, 15, 27, 34, 37, 57, 59) and die cut it using the coordinating  Sips & Stories Die Set

Next I created the card front using the Serene Stripes Stencil to dry emboss the striped pattern, and die cut a window from the panel to create a shaker using the Snow Globe Shaker Die Set.

Next, I created the shaker using distress oxide inks in Kitsch Flamingo and Salvaged Patina, and added glitter accents using the Petite Snow Stencil, and filled it with some clay confetti pieces.

Lastly, I embossed the “I’m so glad that you’re part of my story” which is embossed in gold onto black cardstock and fussy cut before adding it to my card front. 

I hope these cards inspire you to create something winter themed! Please make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog for more inspiration and don’t forget to tag #NewtonsNook or #NewtonsNookDesign on Instagram to share what you created!

Seed Bead Shaker Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Sunday y’all! I usually don’t blog/share on weekends, but I couldn’t resist sharing this non traditional color Fall cards using some new-ish products (and bonus! all the products are used at on sale till 11/1!).

When I started creating this card, I really wanted to see some of my seed beads to create a shaker, but after die cutting the shaker card, I didn’t want to let the inked die cuts go to waste so made a second card!

For my first “main” card, I started by inked up an A2 piece using distress oxides in Speckled Egg, Victorian Velvet, and Spun Sugar. Next I splattered it with water, and gold paint to add some texture. Next I die cut a random collection of dies from the Falling Leaves Coordinating Dies to cover most of the card front. After die cutting the inked background I kept the die attached in the same pattern and cut a piece of fun foam to help create the shaker.

To create the shaker, I backed the die cut panel with some acetate and then added the foam layer, and filled it with seed beads to match the ink blending. I used Aquamarine, Blush, and Cotton Candy from the Posh Seed Bead Bundle. I added it to a A2 top folding card base and finished it off with the Thank You Script Die cut from matte gold paper.

I was about to trash the die cut leaves, along with the foam cut outs, and I was like, wait I can make a second card! I used black ink to stamp the coordinating images on to the die cuts from the Falling Leaves Stamp Set, and then attached them to the matching foam die cuts. I added the Thank You Script Die cut from matte gold paper to the center of another A2 top folding card base and arranged the leaves around it.

Seahawk Themed Fall Critters | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Monday! Yup the Seahawks played a HORRIBLE game and it pretty much rained half the weekend! Thankfully we enjoyed the sun while it was out, and then I made use of the indoor time to get productive and prep for the week ahead! And since I meal prepped/planned for the week, I got in some crafty time this morning to finish this slimline card using the critters I colored last week!

Incase you missed the critters on the feed, you can check it out here and also my little adventure to get the stamps, here.

Copic combinations are listed above for the critters and for the leaves and acorns I used the following combinations : RV17, V05; V04, 12; E13, 15, 27, 59; YG 63, 03, 01; Y38, 17, 15.

Once I was done with my copic coloring the images from the Fall Critters stamp set, I die cut them with the coordinating dies and set them aside. Next I created the background for the shaker, as you can’t make a Pretty Pink Posh card with out a shaker, right? I die cut a slimline panel, covered it with the Leaves Background stencil and inked it up with distress oxide inks in Wilted Violet, Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold, Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn, and Fossilized Amber. The stencil is a delicate one so ink up carefully!

I created the shaker window using the View From My Window slimline die from Crafty Meraki. You can also create a similar one using the Window Frames Die from Pretty Pink Posh like I did here. I added acetate and foam tape and an assortment of sequins to match my ink blending.

At this point I realized I hadn’t added a sentiment! So I embossed the one from the Fall Critters stamp set in gold onto black cardstock and fussy cut it. I added it on the bottom window and arranged the critters and fall foliage around the windows to finished off the card.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you were inspired to create something! Make sure to tag me @everydayengineered and @prettypinkposh on Instagram and join the Facebook group so that we can see what you have created!

Non dimensional Shaker Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Friday Y’all! It’s been along week, and so I’m ready for the weekend with some extra help with the kids and time with some friends, and fingers crossed some crafty time! I have two cards that I have been working on for wayyy too long! But enough about that, let’s get to the card that I have finished!

I see a lot of chatter on social media about extra postage for mailing shaker cards, so decided to play around and try to create a “non-dimensional” shaker card using confetti and tulle.

I started by stamping the wreath image from the Winter Wreath Stamp Set with brown copic friendly ink (leave the stamp in the MISTI to restamp it after coloring). I colored the image using copic markers, restamped with watermark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder, and die cut with the coordinating die.

Next I die cut two stitched slimline rectangle and cut out two offset windows on one of them. Using tulle and double sided tape, I created “pockets” that I filled with Berry Bright Confetti Mix. I embossed the sentiment from Penguin Pals Stamp Set, before adhering the colored wreaths with more double sided tape. I finished off the card by adding a sprinkle of Holiday Jewels Mix.

Embossed Shaker Birthday Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Hump Day! I keep thinking it’s Tuesday, so I clearly need to get started on my extremely long to do list! So let’s keep it short and sweet here and get straight to the card!

This card is possibly my most CAS card yet! I love the end result and it was so quick and easy to make! Just make sure that you have heat resistant acetate!

To create this card, I started by dry embossing the small balloon stencil from Layering Balloons Stencils on to an A2 piece of white paper. Next I die cut the shadow die from the Birthday die cut set to create the shaker window. I heat embossed the word birthday from the Birthday stamp set with white embossing powder and the happy on to a strip of black card stock. I created the shaker window by layering the acetate behind the die cut window with liquid adhesive, and added lots of foam tape to create “box”, filled it with the latest fad, clay confetti! and backed it with an A2 piece of card stock. Lastly I added the strip sentiment to finish off the card!

I hope that this inspires you to create something crafty at the end of your day! If you do, and share on Instagram, be sure to tag me (@everydayengineered) and Honey Bee Stamps (@honeybeestamps)! We love to see what you create!

Gnome Garden | Crafty Meraki & Newton’s Nook Design Collabation

Good morning and Happy Friday! Popping in bright and early to let you know that there is Instagram Hop (with prizes!) hosted by Crafty Meraki and Newton’s Nook Designs.

I’ve recently been creating scene cards and enjoying it! Pair it with my first love, shaker cards and the you got the best kind of card! And let’s throw in some gnomes for added cuteness!

To create this card, I started by die cutting the View from my Window slimline die from Crafty Meraki and backed it with acetate, and added foam tape to create the shaker. Then I die cut a backer for the shaker and inked the areas that would peak through using the Petite Clouds Stencil from Newton’s Nook Designs and blue ink. I stamped and colored all the images from the Gnome Garden stamp set and die cut it using the coordinating dies. Last part of the scene was die cutting and inking up the grass, using the Land Border die set.

Before assembling the shaker, I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set onto the card front and added the grass strips. I filled the shaker windows with blue seed beads before sticking it to the backing. Lastly I added the colored die cuts to finish off the card.

Thanks for stopping by today! I make sure to hop along and see what everyone else created! I hope that you have a fun and crafty weekend! Keep cool!

Butterfly Shaker Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Saturday! I hope y’all are having a great weekend and get to have some crafty time! It’s time again for #ammismakecards! Make sure to head on over to Instagram to see what my fellow Ammi’s have made!

The theme/key word for this month’s challenge was ‘Shaker Cards‘, so of course I had to pull out my Pretty Pink Posh products as she introduced me to shaker cards almost a decade ago when she was just a blogger! So proud to see how far she has come over the years!

I usually have my shaker as the top layer of my card, but I’ve recently been loving how it looks behind diecuts. To create this card I started by inking up the new released Butterfly Background stencil in rainbow order using distress oxides (in Kitsch Flamingo, Festive Berries, Dried Marigold, Scattered Straw, Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass, and Shaded Lilac). Then I die cut the bigger of the two butterflies from Bold Butterflies Dies to create the shaker window. I added acetate and lots of foam tape and filled the shaker window with Unicorn Dreams Clay Confetti.

I die cut the larger butterfly from Bold Butterflies Dies, this time from purple glitter paper, adding it with foam tape on the shaker window. I didn’t adhere it down all the way to ensure that confetti shows through. I finished off the card with a embossed sentiment from the Simple Sentiments on a strip cut from the Quick Stripes die cuts.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today and I hope you head over to Instagram to see what everyone else created!
