Sunshine Kisses
Rainbow Wishes

I wanted to share another really cute 
card I made today.

This time, I made a shaker card with an
adorable stitched cloud die I have.

Hope you like it!

(click to enlarge pic.)

I used the Stitched Rainbow die from Papertrey Ink
and a Cloud die from an unknown source.
The background is the Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables
die from Lawn Fawn.
The sun is from the Beach Palm Tree and Sun file by
Lori Whitlock in the Silhouette Store (Design ID 28210).

I couldn't find the right stamp to use for 
my sentiment so I typed this one up  
and did a print and cut on my Silhouette.

In order to create my shaker, 
I cut out 8 of the clouds with the cloud die and layered them
on top of each other with glue to create the depth needed
for the size of beads I was using.

You can check out this video I googled from YouTube HERE to get a
better idea of the layering effect.  She starts to layer at about min 3:30
on the video if you want to skip ahead.  It's a good video so you might
decide to watch the whole thing.

I ended up scanning and tracing the shape of the cloud to my 
Silhouette in order to cut the layer of acetate for
the face of the shaker.

I used Fun Foam for the top layer of my 
Cloud shaker and filled it with fishbowl beads.
I love how it turned out.

Hope you enjoyed my card today!

Happy Mother's Day

I wanted to share the lovely
Mother's Day card I made for
my MOM this year.

Not to worry...she has already received it
and LOVES it so no spoiler alert...LOL!

I watched a video by Jennifer McGuire on 
shaker cards using tulle instead of acetate
to hold the sequins in place.

I couldn't wait to try it out...It gave the card 
such a nice soft look.

Here you go...

For the base of my card and back panel, I used cardstock
from Papertrey Ink soon to be Ink to Paper.

I created the circle shaker window by
from Queen & Co and filling it with
sequins from Lawn Fawn. Unfortunately,
I don't know the name of the mixed color. 

The cute floral patterned paper is from the
Flirty Florals 6 X 6 paper pad that comes in 
You can also buy it separately HERE.

The "Mom" on the front is from the

Then I finished it off with the Sentiment from
from Queen & Co.

This card exceeded my expectations.  I'm so
happy it turned out the way it did and I was
able to get it off to my Mom in time for 
Mother's Day.

Hope you all enjoyed this as much as we did. 

Wishing you all a Happy Mother's Day!
