Candi Bean Shaker.jpg

Hey everyone! Today I have a fun shaker card to share with you all. I just love the versatility of the Fancy Squares & Little Things Die from Creative basics for making things like shaker cards they layer together perfectly for a thick enough frame to make them super easy to hide the foam tape behind!

I coloured up this little lady from the Candibean  Blossom Girls stamp set with my copic markers and fussy cut her out then attached her to the front of this card as the perfect little image for it. I love this little ladies!

Cupcake Coma

Cupcake Coma 1.jpg

Hey everyone! I am here today for a fun weekend over at Passionate Paper Creations and Friends where we have teamed up with Stampendous! I have coloured up Cupcake Coma with my copic markers.

I appologize because I usually have a list of all the markers I used and I have misplaced the piece of paper that I had this one listed on. That will teach me for colouring on the deck.

I used some ancient patterned paper out of my stash from Fancy Pants, and Creative Basics Cutting Edge Borders 1 die. I kept this card very simple on the front and I love it!

Noor Blog hop card 2
The easel card base is made using Dutch Doobadoo Shape Art Square, ontop of that I used the Dutch Doobadoo Shape Art Label Romantique I did cut that in half to change the patterned paper using LDRS Creative Basics Borders Die Set (even though you cant see it in the finished card, its okay to do something and end up covering it up you can always use it again on the next card), I layered a die cut from the LDRS Creative Basics Background Builders Die 1. I layered the LDRS Guilded Doily die on the front of the card, and the LDRS Guilded Oval Die Set (just the small filigree piece cut twice) under the pearls for the stopper for the easel.
