Kitty Christmas #CTC015

Kitty Christmas

My card today is for Case This Card challenge #CTC015, a theme challenge for Christmas from Jesse Holton. This was made for a customer who loves cats. You can’t really see it in the picture, but I used Wink of Stella to add snow to the hills and trees.

Happy Stamping!

Fall is on Its Way – PPA312

PPA312 Thoughtful Branches and Flourish ThinlitsPPA-312-Aug04Stampin’ Up! is offering a limited time bundle, so of course I had to use it! Plus with the new Holiday Catalog sneak peaks, I was feeling ready for fall.

I used a brayer to color the background. Die-cut the tree. Cut little squares / leaves for my shaker. The card is 4.25″x 5.5″ with a 0.5″ border frame. Used Flourish Thinlits for my branch of leaves. On the circle sentiment, just drag the edges through the ink pad for some extra color.

Foxy Friends Snowy Shaker Card

Stampin' Up! Foxy Friends Snowy Shaker Card

This is my first attempt at making a shaker card. I love how easy Stampin’ Up! makes it to coordinate so that I can spend more time being creative.

Tips: Make sure you add enough snow / glitter before closing shaker. When you think it’s enough, add just a little extra! Also, when adding multiple card layers inside the shaker, you may want to double the foam thickness to make sure there is room inside to freely shake.

Stampin' Up! Foxy Friends Snowy Shaker Card Inside

Notice the Stampin’ Up! patterned paper is double-sided; so the colorful chevrons are the backside of the snowy scene. The Pool Party blue frame is cut out using the same thinlit as the front. The paw prints are heat embossed in silver to help tie in more of the little foxy theme.

Update Someone asked me how I made this, so here my explanation.

Start by making the inside of your shaker scene, leave a 1/4 to 1/2 border to adhere the foam strip. I used the reversible paper because you can see it from both sides.

Attach the front paper (blue chevrons) to your base card. I used a thinlit to make the front opening, but you could just use a trimmer. Cut through both layers.

Attach the window sheet to the backside of your frame. Line foam adhesive all the way around on the plastic. Inside this space I used white beads and glitter to make my snow.

Carefully peel off the foam adhesive paper and stick your scene into it. Since the card front is thick, you may need to score the card in two spots to fold properly.

Decorate inside of card. Then shake and admire 🙂
