OMG OMG OMG! My card was featured in Kristina Werner’s February 2015 Mail Call!
Do you see it? It’s the pink shaker heart card on the upper left corner! (see video at 6 minute mark) Woop Woop! I am over the moon happy because I absolutely love all of Kristina’s cards, techniques, and stamp/stencils.
TA DA – As you may recall, here is the card and previous blog post! When I first started stamping, I watched all of Kristina’s youtube tutorial videos and purchased all of the products she recommended for beginners. Flash forward 5 years later and I am still watching her videos and purchasing her products!
Thank you Kristina for featuring my card in the February 2015 mail call! I am happy as a clam…
Or should I say… Happy as two scottie pups!=)
I love this card because the sentiment is so sweet and so are the little pandas:
I made the shaker window using a die cut for 3×4 pocket cards. I love how the edges are rounded off. For the sky background and hillside, I used a combination of pink chalk inks from memento and distress inks.
I wanted to create that summer sky where everything looks like cotton candy. Yum! For the final touches, I added pretty pink posh sequins for the shaker card. It is hard to tell from the photos but the pandas are standing in front of the clear window so it adds some dimension. Remember that somewhere out there, you are loved by someone, everyday. period. =)
It must be a fish! lol?!
I wanted to make a cute duck shaker card but he looked lonely in the waters so I made a little fish friend to keep him company! For the clouds, I used some white foam and then added wink of stella.
I just love the green/teal sequins – it give that pop of color when the card gets shaken! And like the sentiment says remember to: Smiles. Be Happy!
Fun facts about ducks: Most male ducks are silent and very few ducks actually “quack.” Instead, their calls may include squeaks, grunts, groans, chirps, whistles, brays and growls.
Ugh! Martha Stewart’s Christmas paper just kills me! It’s so cute.
The paper is so adorable I didn’t want to do anything to it besides stick it on some cardstock! However, I decided to make a little shaker card by cutting out one of the mixing bowls and using a sweet sentiment stamp right underneath it! I considered adding some ribbon and buttons here and there but I just think the patterned paper stands on its own! Now if only I can buy sheets and sheets of it and save it for Christmas’ to come!
love love love love love this Christmas paper pad!
