Hi friends! Karla here today with a fun sparkly New Year card to kick off 2018! I recently picked up some fun Shimmerz products from the SMS Shop – Shimmerz Gold Glimmer Blingz and Hi Ho Blingz, which are liquid metallic paints and Puttin’ On The Glitz Paste-eez, a sparkly texture paste. I love using gold and silver together on New Years cards, and these were fun to work with! I also grabbed three different sequin mixes – In The New  Year,  Rollin Rustic and Blue Moon to use in the shaker portion and on the front and inside areas of my card.

It’s the last week of our ‘tools’ theme, so I thought I’d run you through the steps I used to create this card using some crafty tools I have. I started off by using a cutfile that the awesome Laura Rumble created, which I uploaded to Cricut Design Space. Then, I cut it out using the negative cut as the shaker portion and used a gold pen and the write tool to write my message for the inside of the card (shown below).

I used some plastic packaging, some Tattered Angels Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist and the gold and silver Blingz to smoosh the card background with the metallic watercolours. I also used the gold to paint over the Hello diecut for a little extra sparkle.

The glittery Paste-eez was neat to use with a Heidi Swapp star stencil to add a little more subtle texture and glitz to the right of the card front.

I grabbed the three sequin mixes I was using – In The New  Year,  Rollin Rustic and Blue Moon, and put a few from each package onto the area of the card that would be the shaker. After adding a piece of acetate behind the numbers and some double sided foam tape around the edges, I carefully pressed it on the card.

I love the look of the Shimmerz Gold Glimmer Blingz painted onto the hello diecut cut from black cardstock, and this pretty star from the ‘In The New Year’ mix looks great on the card front!

Here’s a look at the inside where I used the Cricut pen tool to write my sentiment using a gold pen. I outlined parts of the lettering with a black pen after to highlight the words and then added some more gorgeous sequins!

Creative Cards With Karla – Typewriter Card and Bookmark Set!

Hello friends! Karla here today, and I hope you’ve had a wonderful week so far. I’ve been having fun with the SpiegelMom Scraps June theme – Take Us Back June – and been thinking of lots of retro icons to have fun with this month. I found some fun typewriter paper along with a cut apart image in my stash and decided it would make a great card and bookmark set. While I was looking through my sequin mixes to see what matched my project I found some lovely colours in the Holiday Traditions sequin mix and then grabbed the Mocha Mint Dream sequin mix to go along with it. Now, I wouldn’t have automatically grabbed these two mixes for either a summer or a retro project, but I realized they work and I need to mix and match more of the mixes that I might be overlooking!@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @projectlife #fusetool #bookmark #card #giftset #stamping #ribbon #sequins #cork #spiegelmomscrap

I recently picked up one of the Becky Higgins Fuse Tools and I am loving it! I love the look of shaker pockets, but when it comes right down to it, I just don’t have the patience to think about all the details to make that little shaker area! Well, this made it sooo easy! I cut the typewriter card out of the cut apart sheet and used a pocket page from my stash to fuse around 3 edges. I glued on my cute Cork Confetti Heart and added some sequins and glitter to my pocket before fusing the top. Easy-peasy!! I used some Scor tape to tape my pocket to the card base and added a little tab at the top stamped with a greeting from an older CTMH stamp set.

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @projectlife #fusetool #bookmark #card #giftset #stamping #ribbon #sequins #cork #spiegelmomscrap

Inside, I used a stamp from the Your Next Stamp Whatnot Sentiment Ten set and added more sequins and some washi tape along the bottom. A few dots of Stickles on the letters add a bit more bling! Well, I couldn’t stop at just a card, so as I was thinking about what I could create next with my fun Fuse tool I thought a bookmark would be great! It could fit into an envelope with the card and add a little something extra for that special person! I layered on my papers, stamped with the typefont CTMH stamp set and created the pocket the same way as above, using more of the Holiday Traditions sequins and the Mocha Mint Dream sequins again. I punched a hole in the top, and since I was using a thick ribbon I wasn’t worried about anything coming out of the hole.

Here’s a look at the back of the bookmark – where I again used the YNS sentiment stamp.

Shake those shaker cards!

Hello my friends!! Jody here today with a quick & easy card share. I created this card for a recent birthday & love how it turned out. I started by embossing a 4.25″ by 5.5″ piece of white Neenah card stock with one of my favorite polka dot embossing folders. Next, I ran it through my Big Shot using one of the Kaiserkraft Stitched Circle dies.  In order to have the stitches NOT show on the card, I ran two sheets of that size cardstock through the Big Shot on the side opposite the raised dots.  I positioned the metal die where I wanted to create the shaker window and used washi tape to secure it in place.  I totally killed two crafting birds with one stone!  Now have another card base ready to go for my next card.

After I had my window cut out on the cardstock, I trimmed down a piece of white craft foam and lined up where the window would go. I placed the metal die where I wanted it and again secured it with washi tape before running the foam through my Big Shot. Then I adhered a piece of acetate directly behind the embossed cardstock to create the front of the window.   I followed up by adhering the die cut foam on the backside of the embossed cardstock which created an area to add my sequins.  I poured about 2 teaspoons of Pinky Pie Pink sequins into the window area and added a few random pink hearts from the Hearts on Fire sequin mix. 

After adding my sequins, I put adhesive all around the edge of the circle to create a seal when I added the patterned paper backing to my window.  For the finishing touches, I added a wood veneer word from Michael’s Craft Store and some fabulous Maggie Holmes Gold Glitter Thickers, which I’ve been hoarding big time!!  Easy peasy!!

Here are photos of the products used to create this fun shaker card!!

Thanks so much for checking out the blog today!!  Being the shop owner and always thinking of more ways to accommodate my customers, I’m thinking about adding a few options for cardstock to the shop.  What do you think about SMS offering 8.5 by 11″ Neenah white cardstock and 12×12 American Crafts white and kraft cardstock in single sheets?  This would affect some shipping methods and costs slightly due to the size of the box needed.  I’d love to hear your feedback!

I hope you all have a creative day!

Jody

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…
Ka

Love/Anniversary Card

Hello…

Ka here with an anniversary card for my first post as a Sparkler.

Anniversary Shaker Card

For this sweet card, I colored the cute hedgehogs from Avery Elle More Stories stamp set and the branch from Sweet ‘N Sassy Love Birds stamp set using my Copic Markers. I white heat embossed the sentiment from Sweet ‘N Sassy You and I stamp set after blending the background with distress inks.

Anniversary Shaker Card Detail

After coloring the images in and cutting them out by hand, I created a shaker window using a heart die cut. I filled it with Love Beats Sequins mix and sealed it with foam tape.

Well I hope you have enjoyed my daily dose of inspiration and don’t forget to stop by the SMS store to pick up the Love Beats Sequins mix!

Have a great week!
Ka
