Shake, Shake with the Divas

Tuesday, July 28, 2015


Happy Tuesday... today I have a fun Shaker card using the Two Paper Divas stamp Peace & Joy. This is a great sentiment stamp for Christmas cards. I love the different fonts they used in the sentiment. 


I created a white card base and then I die cut a square from the front panel and a created a template using a pencil on the inside panel. I stamped the sentiment inside and heat embossed it with Gold embossing powder. 


I created a second panel for the front of the card and trimmer it an 1/4" shorter all the way around and die cut another square and embossed it with striped embossing folder in the Big Shot. Using the Fuse tool and a Gold Shaker mix from Lucy Abrams I created a shaker pouch and adhered that over the opening in the front of the card. I added the embossed panel over the front of the card using dimensionals and then I created a Gold Glitter frame from some additional square dies and some Gold Glitter paper. I tied some Gold Thread into a bow along the bottom of the front to fill in that white space a little.


This is one of those cards you have to see in person.. It's very shiny lol. Head over to the Two Paper Divas blog for more inspiration.

Happy Monday everyone... I hope you all had a great weekend! Today I'm flashing back with the Alley Way Stamps using a fun set called Black Beard's Loot. This set is great for Masculine cards.. or any Pirate fan. And there's a greta companion set for it called Land HO. 


I found some cool Map paper in a stack from DCWV and though it was perfect to use with this set. I stamped the chest image onto a piece of watercolor paper in VersaFine Black ink and then I colored it in with some Kuretake Watercolors. This set of watercolor has some greta metallics in it and I used a touch of the gold watercolor over the coins for a bit of shine. 


I created a Chocolate Chip card base and then I added a piece of the pattern paper trimmed to size and then I adhered the image panel with some dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment onto some more Chocolate Chip card stock and heat embossed it in white.

Happy Saturday everyone.. Today I have a fun card using one of this month's new release sets from the Alley Way Stamps called Cha Cha Cha


I stamped the cactus images from Cha Cha Cha onto some white card stock in Memento Black ink using the masking technique. I colored them in and created some background color with Copics. I stamped a few of the banners from the Cake Day set and colored them with Copics as well and cut them out. They were added over the cactus with a glue pen. 


I created a Kraft colored card base and I added some black card stock then mounted the image panel over it leaving a thin boarder peeking out. I stamped the sentiment from Cha Cha Cha onto a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock and added it as a tab above the panel and a banner from Real Red card stock along the bottom edge. Super cute!

Happy Wednesday.. my friend Nicole over at the Right at Home shop is releasing her very first Stamp set tonight and there's a fabulous Design Team helping spread the word and we all created some great projects with this fun new set


This set is adorable and very versatile... I created two cards one is a regular A2 size and the other is a 4-bar size to show how this fun set can be used! 


One my first card I created a Navy card base and I added a piece of pattern paper. Then I stamped the images onto a piece of white card stock that was die cut with the MFT Zig Zag Stitched rectangles die set. I used Lawn Fawn inks in Lobster, Deep Sea & Black. I added that panel to the card base at an angle as well with some Plus Glue Adhesive. For a touch of bling I added some Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh in 4 & 6mm.


For the second card I created a 4-bar size card base from white card stock and I added a piece of Lawn Fawn Let's Polka paper to the lower half. I die cut a piece of white card stock with one of the MFT Stitched basics edge dies. Then I stamped the flowers using some more Lawn Fawn inks in Sunflower, Freshly Cut Grass & Walnut. I stamped the sentiment in Walnut ink along the lower panel and added some of the exclusive Right at Home Sequin mix!

Happy Saturday everyone.... It's time for some fun with the Alley Way Stamps!! Today I have a Clean and Simple card using the fun new set Oh Splat and a set from the June release called Lite Brite!


I created a Black card base that was Top folding and then I stamped the Splats using some Lawn Fawn inks onto a white panel. I stamped the Hello from the Lite Brite set in VersaFine black ink over the Splats so you could see them through the little circles in the word. I love the look of the rainbow colors !


I trimmed a 1/4" off the side of the white panel and added it to the black card base. I felt it needed a touch of bling so I added a few Rhinestones.

These penguins crack me up there are 4 sets of Waddles and they are all full of fun penguins. I created a white card base and I added some embossing paste with a stencil. While that was drying I stamped the penguin image and banner onto a piece of white card stock and colored it in with Copic markers. Then I die cut the images using a stitched circle die.

Christmas with the Divas!

Saturday, July 18, 2015

Happy Sunday everyone.. I hope you had a great weekend! It's Christmas today on the blog with a fun watercolor card using one of the new releases from Two Paper Divas called Deck the Halls. This is a fun set full of ornaments. 


I stamped one of the ornaments onto a piece of watercolor paper three times using some Black Soot Distress Ink. I stamped it off twice so I would get a lighter image. Then I colored them in with some watercolors and added a faded background as well and some splashes of color. I stamped the strings in VersaFine black ink as well as the sentiment from the Holiday Sentiments set. 


I trimmed the watercolor panel to size and added some strips of Gold Glitter paper along each edge and added it to a Black card base. To bring in a little more gold I added some Gold glitter gumdrops from Your Next Stamp. I really like how it just has a touch of sparkle. Head over to the Two Paper Divas blog for more inspiration and looks at this month's release.
