Shaker card

Happy King's Day! Before heading off to some King's Day activities I've got a card for you.
Yesterday our niece turned 14! She becomes a real lady, so I made her a ladylike shaker card with a shabby-chic touch. I used Crate Paper's Craft Market dp and the flower die from the Confetti line, also Crate paper. To add some extra dimension to the flower I used silver thread and gold sequins. Between the layers of the flower I used foam tape. The leaves are from vellum. The shaker part is filled with silver and gold sequins. I personalized the card by stamping her name into the shaker part.

Story book

Between studying and some chores I made two cards with Avery Elle's Story book. The sentiment on the first card is from Papertrey Ink. The alphabet I used for the name on the second card is from Lawn Fawn. Background papers from Echo Park. Unfortunately, I can't get the colours right at the moment, but I distressed the white paper with antique linen and tea dye to give it a warmer and softer look.

I'd like to participate in the current CAS-challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.

Thanks for hopping by!

Let's play

My sister asked me to create a card for her friend's daughter who turns two. I pulled out my new set from Lawn Fawn Let's Play, some Echo Park papers and started to build a nice scene. I used foam tape to add some dimension to the card. My sisters request was to use the name of the little one as well.The little dots of the ï were a bit of a problem considering the foam tape. So I added a piece of foam tape to the paper and ran it through my cuttlebug. Problem solved!

The next card is my mass production card at the moment. I stamped these balloons in all kind of colours depending on the receiver. Pinks, red, yellows and oranges for female cards and blues, greens and greys for male cards. Quick and easy! It is a 10x10 card. Love that size!

Last week I was in the UK with a group of students. It was a great week! However, I'm a little bit behind (read: far behind) household chorus and study things. I'm going to use this day off at the best!

Wish you all a blessed Easter!
