Hex Yeah!

Hello! Today I am sharing a card that I made my son for his birthday. He loves shaker cards, so I knew I wanted to go in that direction.  I actually used 4 Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground on this card. One of them is Copper Penny from the new release. And I finally have the Hex Yeah stamps and dies from Simon Says Stamp and CZ Designs, that I knew he would think was cool.

I made 4 shaker windows using the 2 hexagon dies in the set. I actually kept them attached so that I didn't have to worry about measuring the distance between them. Once I laid out my first set (the top 2), I rotated the hexagons so that the little one would sit in where I just die cut it. This allowed me to cut a larger one with the proper spacing. I repeated this with the larger hexagon to cut the final little guy.

As I mentioned, I used Copper Penny Sparkle Blend in the upper left hexagon, followed by Peacock Pizzaz, Be Leaf in Yourself, and last but not least, Breakfast at Tiffy's. Look at the square sequins in Copper Penny! I knew my son would love the contrasting Blends. I backed the shakers with Gold Shimmer Paper. I really like adding fancy paper behind the windows. To jazz up the background, I wet some gold Fine Tec watercolor and splattered it all over. More shine is always good with my boy. The "It's your birthday" is from Stampendous.

Needless to say, my son loved his card. There was a lot of shaking going on after he received it. I think it's a pretty cool card too.

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
