Goodbye Fall...

Fall is over. Didn't the time go fast? Up here in Minnesota we already have snow on the ground and have woken up to 12 degree mornings. As a farewell, I created this shaker card using a fun Sparkle Blend that fits perfect with the theme.
The Sparkle Blend I used is called Be Leaf in Yourself and it is exclusively found at White Rose Crafts LLC. I used this blend because there are mini leaves and the colors are great for Fall. I love the greens, reds, yellows and oranges.
Don't forget to stop by the blog daily for lots more inspiration.

With Gratitude Shaker Card

Hello Crafty Friends - Annie here with a shaker card using a mix of Gingerbread Man Sparkle Blend and Very Cranberry Sparkle blend. These two blend are perfect for your Fall cards. 

I have been clearing out my craft room and I found a few card kits that I hadn't used. I decided to give one ago for this card. I used a Paper Pumpkin kit from 2016. 

This kit was perfect because it was designed to be a shaker kit. I only used the following: Card base, Leaves cut outs, Die cut bits, Acetate window & twine. I used the Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blends for the shaker bits.

This blend combines rich reds, browns
 and a touch of beautiful gold and green
. it's has crystals, micro beads and muti-hued no hole beads.
 So lovely with it's glitter, shiny metallic and matte elements

This Sparkle Blend has holographic brown sequins,
 gold glitter sequins, little crystals,
 and the tiniest gingerbread men ever. 

Paper Pumpkin Thank You kit
Gold Glitter paper - Jot Brand

Let's get started on how I put this shaker card together.

First, I stamped all the squares and the sentiment.with the stamp set provided in the kit.  

Next, I adhered the strip of gold paper towards the bottom of the card base. Then, I adhered the 3 stamped squares above the gold glitter paper. Next, I added the gold paper to the top of the card base. I set it aside while I work on the card front panel.

I adhere the acetate film to the back of the leaf die cut panel. Then, I place foam strips and some foam squares.  to the back of the panel. 

 Then, I place the mix of Sparkle Blends onto the card base on the stamped squares. Next, I placed the front panel onto the base. Making sure that the Sparkle Blends stay inside the sqaures

Now, I placed the fishtailed banner piece to the left hand corner. Then, the stamped sentiment piece on top of the banner. I added a bit of the gold glitter paper under sentiment. Finally I added a bow.

Happy Birthday

Kelli here today showing a card I made for my older brother!  His Birthday is just a couple days after Thanksgiving, and every once in a while falls on Thanksgiving, but not this year.  I used the Birthday Bash Sparkle Blend for his card today, showcasing the stars and balloons, and party hats!  This blend is super cute I love it!

I made the background using Dr. P.H. Martin's Bombay inks and a Darice stamp set!  
I picked out the Balloon, Party Hat, and Star sequins for his card today.  

I also stamped on the inside and added a Party Hat Sequins to this little candle as well!
