Mixed Media ATC’s with Laura

Mixed Media Mania

Hi Chaps, Laura here today with some more ATC’s.

@spiegelMomScraps @ShimmerzPaints #spiegelMomScraps #shimmerzpaints #artisttradingcards #ATC #sequin

These were made on some regular cardstock with inks, gelatos and, of course, Shimmerz.  I added some brush lettering sentiments hand written on some scraps of watercolour paper.  I find the Shimmerz products work well for brush lettering – it is just a matter of adding the right amount of water to get a nice inky consistency.

I added a few sequins from Crushin On Purple and picked out a couple of blue sequins from Hot Right Now.

Thanks for stopping by,

Cards for a Scientist

Card and Tags Header

Hi Chaps!  Laura here today.

I have a friend who is a science teacher with chemistry being her specialist subject.  For a while I’ve been thinking about some chemistry themed cards for her and this is what I came up with…


I have used a combination of these sequin mixes; Crushin’ on Purple, Fairytale 2, Mirror Mirror confetti, Lucky Charm.


And this second shaker card uses Magical Ocean Sequin Mix.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Birthday Shaker Card

Hello… Ka here with a fun birthday shaker card. I simply cannot wait until Spring! This card had me dreaming of warm weather, smelling the Spring fresh air and walking on green grass! Spring should be here any day now, I hope…

Birthday Shaker Card 1

For today’s card, I inked up the cute pup from the Mama Elephant Playful Pups stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored him with Copic Markers. I cut him out by hand and set him aside while I worked on my shaker. I used different sizes of Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Dies to die-cut the cardstocks and Mama Elephant Femme Frames for the scalloped rectangle. I created the shaker window using a stitched duo square dies and the grass using the grassy border dies from Lawn Fawn.

Birthday Shaker Card Detail

Once everything was cut, I stamped the sentiment on the acetate using Black StazOn ink. The sentiment is from the Mama Elephant Mini Messages stamp set. The final step involved assembling everything together on a Neenah 110 lbs cardstock and an assorted mix of sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps Shop.

Well that’s it for me today. I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s dose of inspiration.

Until next time…
