Birthday Shaker

Cute sketch from Seize the Birthday challenge.  I wanted to create a shaker card for a class and this was perfect for it.  I cut my own confetti in several colors and sizes to match the paper.  I had in mind to stamp a cake inside the shaker but glued it all together before stamping. Enjoy!

I had a couple of ideas for this sketch but this cute heart was my choice.  I used a circle instead of a square and placed the two bands behind it.  I punched a heart than a circle around it, trimmed a piece of a die to insert between the layers with dimension.  Enjoy!

Just For You

Got together with my friend Lili to work on a workshop we were both having.  The idea was to give the sentiment a less solid look, so I created my own ink pad using 6 different ink refills without thinking on how I was going to put together the card.  When I saw the sketch from PPA I knew this would be perfect for my already stamped sentiment.  This was not an easy card to put together, it was hard to come up with a color for the background, none of the colors looked right.  So after leaving it aside for a while, the Marina Mist was embossed, two Melon Mambo strips were added and some flowers.  Definitely, this was a team card idea.  Thanks Lili.   Enjoy!

You're just my type Valentine

Not sure how I feel about this card...too busy?  I wanted to use the sketch and this new paper that I thought would work well together.  I heat embossed the typewriter, dry embossed and used a couple of punches.  Enjoy!

I like punches better than dies, and these balloons have a good size.  I clear embossed the balloons for some shimmer.  I like them outside the frame. Enjoy!
