Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

How are you today? Did you enjoy yesterday’s card? I hope so because I have the “Shaker Card” as promised, and I did it by video … much easier than posting step by step pictures. PLUS, it’s saved on my YouTube Channel CLICK HERE so you can view it again, anytime you want. While you are there, I would love it if you would “subscribe” to my channel … then you would be notified that I’ve added more videos when you open up YouTube!

Grab a cup and “escape” for a little while and I will show you how I created my Shaker Card …

My apologizes for the scratchy throat … I do most of my videos in the evening because my sinuses are kicked in first thing in the morning! lol

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my blog / and video! I hope you have a beautiful day.

Simple Shaker Cards!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Shake it, Shake it baby … oooh, oooh!! I am excited to share with you today to cards that I created for my Technique Tuesday, Facebook LIVE. I’m sharing a super simple way to make Shaker Cards that I saw at my OnStage event last weekend.

The demonstration was done by fellow demonstrator Rosemarrie Gonzalez. She shared a really fun new suite with Ice Cream cones and Popcicles … your going to love it! But until then, let me know you the technique. Sit back for a few minutes and watch my Facebook LIVE from last night. Just click on the image below to watch the video …

Isn’t that a cool idea … using clear envelopes to create shaker cards. So quick and easy!! I had so much fun making the cards. You begin with your 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ card base scored at 4-1/4″ … fold in half. Your designer paper will be cut 4″ x 5-1/4″ – you could put some cardstock behind it if your want it a little sturdier for tying bows.

On this card I used the Trimming the Town Suite … I’ve used the designer paper and the All the Trimmings Ribbon Combo. The Snowflake Sequins are encased in the Clear Envelope.

The sweet little greeting comes from the Little Treats stamp set from the Little Sweets Bundle.

I had some die cut pieces left over from our Holiday Catalog & Virtual Retreat Party and used them on the inside of the card. They are die cut from the designer paper!

My next card is made for my daughters December birthday, and features the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper.

I began with a Highland Heather base and then slide my Feels Like Frost into the Clear Envelope before sprinkling in the Snowflake Sequins in. I was amazed at the change in the sequins … it picked up the color from the designer paper.

The ribbon was the fun part and accented the stunning paper, beautifully! I used the Layered Circle die and the stitched edge die from the Warm Hugs bundle.

When I trimmed the designer paper down to 4″ x 5-1/4″ … I used a piece of the scrap on the inside of the card. The Metallic Edge Ribbon is easily dyed with the Stampin’ Blends. You can also use our regular markers or even your ink refills!

I hope you enjoyed seeing how easy it is to create the fun and beautiful cards. Don’t forget you can even embellish the outside a little too!!

Thanks so much for hanging out with me today. Hope you were inspired to create “Shaker Cards” like I was when I saw it. I have listed the items used in the cards for your convenience.

Have a wonderful day ~

Snow Globe – Shaker Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend … Sunday turned out to be a beautiful fall day.

Today I want to share with you another retreat card … a shaker card! Our afternoon session include 3 cards that we created using the “Hearts Come Home” bundle. My mission was to show them how quick and easy you can create a shaker card.

Our background comes from the Merry Music Designer Specialty Paper. Using the Layering Circles Framelits dies, we cut 1 white and 1 window sheet from the same size circle. Then we took the scallop circle and the circle one size smaller that our precut circles, and layered them together before cutting to create our frame.

On the white circle, we stamped our house in Black and then our Santa in Smoky Slate. Our next step was to attach the foam adhesive strips to the outer edge of the white circle. Once applied, you can fill this with whatever you’d like … we used a large glitter and Red Glimmer hearts.

Once you have filled your “well” … remove the top layer off the adhesive strip and drop the window sheet over the top – press to seal. Next, we glued the frame onto the window sheet.

To create a snowglobe … I used the Everyday Label punch!! This is the punch that we used on the Merry Little Christmas Suite cards. Our  greeting was heat embossed in white and then the punch was aligned (1/2 way into the cardstock) to create the base… then punch!

Use the adhesive strip to mount the base onto the front of the card so it’s the same height as the globe.

Everybody loves getting Shake Cards, and now you know how to make a Snowglobe Shaker …. quick -n- easy!

Thank you for sharing a part of your day with me and visiting my blog.

Have yourself a great day!

Crazy about You …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been having a great time down in my Stampin’ Studio creating cards with all the new products from the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs.

Today I’d like to share a touch of Valentine’s day with you … before we know it, it will be here and we want to be prepared. I began with the cute new “Happy Heart” Textured Impressions folder and used it with the “Shimmery White” cardstock.


Sometimes I like to pull stuff out of my stash, that I haven’t used for a while. I find that most of the time is works beautifully together with our new items, and our Shimmery White cardstock is subtly beautiful with just a touch of shimmer.

I wanted to create a “Shaker Card” so I used the “Sweetheart” punch from the catalog and punched out a section for my window. I covered it with a piece of the Window Sheets and then used the outer edges of the stampin’ dimensionals to create the “well” in which I put my confetti in.

To create the confetti I used the “Confetti Heart Border Punch” in the Occasions catalog – pg.5. and punched them out in different colors, the punch already supplies you with different sizes! I then pealed off the backing from the stampin’ dimensionals and covered it with a piece of the Shimmery White cardstock.

Now, I wanted some type of greeting or verse on the inside so I decided to create my own with the “Crazy About You” stamp set. It contains 33 stamps and will create endless greetings and or verses for you. Here is what I came up with …


I snuck the little hearts out of the “Hello Life” stamp set to complete the look on the inside.

To finish the outside of my card, I added one more heart that I punched our of Rich Razzelberry. The heart comes from the “Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack”.

I wanted the “shaker” part of the card to be the focal point so did not add a greeting or ribbon to the front … just the one little heart. As it turns out, it matches those little hearts from the embossing folder perfectly!


Thanks for dropping by,,, have a heartfelt day
