You Are Magical Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)


Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this CAS (clean and simple), shaker, You Are Magical Card.


I made this card for my niece Tea who's 7th birthday is tomorrow. 

This shaker card was so easy to create. I used stamps from an ADORABLE Jane's Doodles 'Magical' stamp set. LOVE!!! :o)

I was inspired with colors from a photo below shared on Addicted to Stamps and More blog for the challenge #255 - Photo inspiration. :o)

I stamped a dragon on a thick watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the dragon and colored edges with black marker. As a finishing touch I added white highlights and dots on the dragon and set it aside.

I mixed various sequins to get my own mix. :o)

Then I worked on shaker construction. 

I cut a white carstock panel, a bit smaller than a card base, and cut out circle window on it. I stamped a sentiment below the window and glued a piece of acetate on the back of the panel to close the window. I glued foam sheet square with a circle window on it on the back of the panel, filled the window with shaker mix and glued it on the card base.

Lastly, I glued 3-D foams on the dragon and placed it on the card. To make the card sturdier, I glued a white cardstock paper panel inside the card. :o)

    Striped 40th Birthday Card (Fairy Tale Challenge #174)


    Hi everyone! :o)


    It's time for a new challenge over at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

    Our theme for this fortnight is #174, Zahlen / Numbers. Use numbers on your handmade projects.

    This time our lucky winner will win this lovely embossing folder.


    And here is my take on the challenge: CAS (clean and simple), Striped 40th Birthday Card.


    I made this card for my partner's brother who's 40th birthday was yesterday.

    To make this card I tried an awesome Jennifer's McGuire Masked Stripe Inlay technique. What an awesome technique and a great way to use paper scraps. I love the result!! :o)

    To make striped panel, I used 4 various blue colored cardstock paper scraps, cut them to various size stripes and glued them as shown and described on Jennifer's blog. Check her blog post and video for more details and how to make striped panel. :o)

    When I glued all stripes, I trimmed the panel and heat embossed in white number 40 on it. I used numbers form Happy Little Stampers 'Big Bold Numbers' stamp set.

    Lastly, I glued the panel on a white top folded square card base and my card was finished.

    Card dimensions: 102 mm x 102 mm (4" x 4")

    List of supplies:
    • Happy Little Stampers 'Big Bold Numbers' stamp set
    • white cardstock paper
    • blue cardstock paper scraps (4 colors)
