Double Shaker Christmas Card

I've been having a lot of fun creating shaker cards lately and when I seen this double layer shaker card on Julia's Zed Squared blog I knew I had to re-create it with a Christmas theme.

If you want to know how to create the double shaker card have a look at her blog, she has a great video.

I love all the little items in my shaker card and with the Lawn Fawn Stamps and dies it was super easy; no fussy cutting needed! Except for the holly and the scarf, I fussy cut them.

The deer is apart of their Party Animal stampset and it's super cute! I love how I can make the animals work for any occasion.

I'm entering my card into the last Lawnscaping Challenge of 2015! The theme for this challenge is Merry Christmas!

Calling All Hereos Birthday - FMS200 - FM222

It has been a very long time since I have been in the craft room and created anything. Life has completely taken over and I am finding it hard to get into the craft room.

I needed to get some crafting therapy so today I decided to see what challenges were out there and what I could come up with. 

I found two challenges and instantly I had an idea for a card. 

Thank you Freshly Made Sketches and The Friday Mashup for your inspiration!

This sketch was simple but it was perfect!

The challenge at Friday Mashup was to create a Birthday card using any technique, I chose to do a reflection technique using vellum as well as a water-colour background.

Here's what I came up with:

Stampset: Calling All Heroes and a Paper Pumpkin Stamp
Paper: Basic Black, Shimmery White, Whisper White, Lost Lagoon, Vellum
Ink: Versa Mark, Archival Black, Lost Lagoon
Markers: Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight 
Accessories: White Embossing Powder

Paper Crafter Sampler - May - Wooden It Be Lovely

Panels, planks, pallets.  What do they all have in common?  They're all made of wood.
Wood, be it recycled pallets, old fences or barnyards, has evolved into home d├ęcor and arts and crafts.  It's the later of the two in which the design team was given a challenge to create projects with a wood theme.
The May issue, "Wooden It Be Lovely" offers project ideas using stamps and textures resembling wood.  We've really come through with an array of ideas, each unique.
Keeping in theme with the wooden theme, the template of the month is a Garden Bench with a sweet Hardwood background stamp.

Here's a few sneak peeks of what you can find inside this issue.

April ~ The Potting Shed

Springtime and the flowering season is upon us. It's time for getting down in the dirt to weed the gardens and plant fresh petaled pretties. What a great time to beautify your home indoors and out. 

This month the Paper Crafters Sampler celebrates the flowering season with "The Potting Shed". In this issue you'll find beautiful paper floral creations.

The template of the month is a Garden Trowel, with a triptych design. Embellish the inside and outside, securing the closure of the flaps with the trowel handle.


Here's a few sneak peeks:
