Christmas Bunny Shaker

Greetings! Today I have a new shaker card to share that uses several of the Add-On products for the White Rose Crafts December Subscription Kit.

I started out with the sweet Christmas Bunny stamp from Wild Rose Studio. I colored her in Wintry colors with my Zig Clean Color markers. Then I had to figure out a way to make a shaker window, without cutting off her ear. I used a heart die from Lawn Fawn's Magic Slider Die set and taped it into place. Then, I put my top plate on top (I use a Sizzix Big Shot machine), but only to the top of her ear. This way, the die wouldn't cut beyond the plate. Then, I turned the paper and die sideways, and repeated the process to cut to the side of her ear. I wound up with what's shown in the photo below.

You can see that her ear hasn't been cut because of how I placed the top plate. Then, I just used an X-Acto Knife to cut around the ear and remove the inner portion of the heart.

For my background, I applied some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink with a cosmetic sponge to the outer portion of the piece. I made sure the ink was dry, then I used VersaMark Ink to apply snowflakes from the Dovecraft "Magic and Sparkle Snowflakes" stamp set. Then I heat embossed Ranger's Holographic powder. It's hard to photograph them, but they are really lovely in person.

Inside my shaker window I used the "Frozen" Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground and I backed the area with Blue Shimmer Paper from Craft Creations, which is actually in the December Kit.

I love the overall soft look of this card. And I think it is very sweet. It was fun to experiment with how to get the die to work around the bunny too! Please be sure to visit White Rose Crafts to see not only the December Kit, but the Add-Ons as well. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some

Day 1 of 31 Days: Come as You Aren't

Greetings! It's officially the most wonderful time of the year! Today is Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween. I have participated in every 31 Days (what are we at? Year 5?) and I am so excited to be doing it again. For my first project. I use a bunch of Stampendous' newest Halloween images. I started off with the fantastic witch label from the Halloween Labels Cling and Die Set  and colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I then stamped the spiderweb and a spider from the Spider Fear set and embossed with with Star Dust embossing powder. I created my card base out of Sweet Potato cardstock and stenciled the Swirls Stencil with Gray Flannel Memento ink. I didn't make it solid, rather I wanted the stenciled image to fade in and out of the background. Then I inked up the bottom edge of the card base with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed Marcastie Embossing Powder on top. The card needed a little something further, so I stamped a sentiment from the Spooky Wishes
