Shakers!

Hello, Our new Design Team member Elizabeth, at Just Us Girls, is our hostess this week and she has asked us to make Shakers for our Trend this time around. If you know me you know that I am intimidated and struggle with Shakers and I don’t really know why. However, that is until now! Amy R from Prairie Paper and Ink has a video out that shows you how to make full panel shakers. I am pleased to announce that this was a game changer for me! I need to go ahead and donate all the unused shaker shapes I have purchased in the past, as I don’t think I am going back that way again. LOL But who knows! I have linked up the video for you above!

I am also linking up over at Happy Little Stampers for their Stencil Challenge of Anything Goes!

Card Details: This shaker was made with leftover packaging that I had yet to discard…thank goodness! If you look closely the plastic has a bit of a wave to it, which was a happy accident since I do have a beach theme. I regrettably tried to shade the flip flops with a Grey Copic. Most elements are from Honey Bee Stamps-Flippin Fabulous, the things that are not are… the two types of leaves and those are from Stampin Up. The stencil is from Whimsy Stamps and called Swish. I used Oxide Inks, Prismas, and some Copics to color. The stars I added to the Flip Flops are from who knows. The sequins mix I picked up at my local stamping store and it actually has shells in it. Super fun! Oh, and the bow on the flip flops is sparkle paper.

The inside of the card says…Flippin Fabulous! This card has already been received by the recipient…the sweet Darnell. I wanted to send it to her since she recently decided to stop the Twofer Challenge, and to tell her know how fabulous she is and to thank her for all the love she puts into this great hobby of ours. I hope it brightened her day just like she brightens ours. She still has another challenge blog that she runs called NBUS, you should definitely check it out!

I hope you will consider coming by Just Us Girls and checking out my fabulous teammates cards and then playing along!

Happy Creating, Nanc’

Happy 60th- Make Us Laugh!

The inside of my card says….P.S. I am still younger than you! LOL

Hello,  Hope you are having a great day! Have we got a great topping for you starting at Seize the Birthday!  Lindsey has asked us to ” Make Us Laugh.”  Who doesn’t like to receive a card that makes you laugh! Such a great idea Lindsey! However, if that is a struggle for you, any Birthday card will do. The toppings are always optional. I made the above card for my sister as she just turned 60 on Tuesday.  She really loved it! Especially the inside, which I have written for you above. I am the baby of the family and some say spoiled. LOL.

Shaker cards and I don’t always see eye to eye.  I always get the stupid idea to add glitter or something of that nature inside and it sticks to the acetate and becomes all milky and that drives me crazy. Well, I did it again. However, I did manage to get the majority of it out this time.  NOTE to SELF…Acetate and glitter do not work well together.  Then I also decided at the very end, to add the 60’s, and not sure that was a wise idea either. What’s done is done! Stay tuned as sometime in the near future this MFT Shaker die set may be for sale really cheap. LOL   Card was made with all MFT products! (Thanks to Barbara Campbell for bringing me the sentiments to let me use on her visit.)

Before I go, I would like to give a HUGE thanks to Julie for being such a fabulous Surprise Party Guest. We really enjoyed your work!! Please play along with us any chance you can!

PLEASE hop on over to Seize the BIrthday, as I am sure you will get a chuckle or ten out of the team’s cards!  Nanc’

Sip Sip Hooray!

Hello!  Vicki is our hostess this week at Just Us Girls and she has a great photo for us. As soon as I saw those wine glasses on the table I knew I was going to break out one of my new MFT sets ( Margarita Shaker Die and Spirited Sentiments) and make a shaker card.  The only thing that completely backfired is, I decided to finally open up my Gelatos that I have had for ages and see how they worked.  Little did I know, or use my brain, that they smear when you rub your finger over them.  So now my background paper that was once white is now pink. If you know my style you probably know that I don’t do shaker cards very often, but it was fun.  If you look closely my margarita glass has sugar on the top (fine glitter)…I prefer sugar over salt! What about you?

Please come over and check out what the ladies did, and before I go I would like to say thanks to my pal Linda for being such a fabulous guest this month! Nanc’
