Hi everyone, Mandi here for your Tuesday Talent series. Today, I will be focusing on the Natural Burlap String , Navy Blue Burlap String , Gold Sequin Confetti and Silver Stardust Sequin Confetti products. The pattern paper I used on this card was from Fancy Pants “Good Fellows” collection. All of these are going to be used on a fun shaker card, which just happens to work for a guy’s birthday. We all know it is hard to make a fun guy card.
The shaker frame was so easy to make.
- Adhered a piece of plastic (I used a piece of a page protector) to the backside of the chipboard frame.
- Attached foam tape (I didn’t have any so I used foam squares) alone the four edge.
- Place sequins inside.
- Stamp image/sentiment to pattern paper that is the same size as frame
- adhere backing to frame.
To adhere the cork shapes, I applied adhesive to them with the x sticker maker from Xyron. I then laid the the cork stickers on top of the string, this acted as a tape to attached the string.
Thanks for stopping by and I hoped I showed you that sequins / shaker boxes can be used on guy cards.
Hello scrappy friends! I am changing things up a bit today and using the sketch that Lisa picked for the monthly challenge in the facebook group. I’ll be back in September with another Scraplift Sunday, though!
Here’s the sketch and the moodboard:
I really liked using these two pieces for my layout inspiration today. Here’s what I came up with:
I wanted to use that blue polka dot glassine bag that you can see behind the big focal photo in the middle. I decided to play off the blue color in the moodboard.
I have 3 little clusters on this layout. This one I used blue and white twine and a heart cork piece from the shop.
For the title I used the American Crafts Thickers called ‘Fancy’ from the Fancy Free collection, some Teresa Collins little aphas and the Fancy Pants Atwell puffy stickers.
For the top cluster I used the adorable Cork-Fetti Hearts mix. Isn’t this little banner of hearts just perfect?!! I love it!! I had the ‘Fancy Free’ puffy stickers and the word ‘yay’ worked on this layout because my son is opening and playing with a birthday present. I also added some twine and Gold Sequin Confetti. In this photo they are reflecting the light a ton!
Here’s a better view of the confetti sequins. I wanted to used them in place of mist in the sketch and I really love how it turned out.
