Christmas Just Around the Corner!

It’s never too early to start on Christmas cards right?

I have officially retired all of my ribbon and am wondering if anyone wants a nice neat box of it!

Wishes from Under the Sea!

I used a new technique for this card. I colored in all my little stamp critters and then applied the Glossy Accents.  Once it was dried I used distress inks to create the underwater background. Love how it turned out!

Chickies Like to Shake Shake It!

So I wanted to try something new…

So I’m shaking things up with shaker cards! My bestfriend sent me an awesome youtube video showing how to make your own shakers and I’m officially obsessed!

I’ve filled this shaker card with beads and star sequins.  I found a great way to store all these goodies along with my other craft essentials and will be sharing that in my next post!

Flowers in June!

Right now we are experiencing a little June gloom but flowers are on the way!

This card was very fun to make because I used a few different die cuts and put it all together! And again, I got a little carried away withe glossy accent!

Gumballs just for you!

Yellow Submarine!

Actually this one is silver! A yellow one is on the way!

I used clear cs to make a glass window on the submarine and loved how it turned out! I also stamped the submarine on glittery silver paper which gives it a nice finish.  This is also my first card using distressed inks correctly. YAY!

I really need to combine stamp sets more often!
