BSS MONDAY IDEA - VALENTINE EASEL SHAKER CARD

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

This week's idea is a Valentine Easel Shaker Card.

Close up of sweet stamped image


Card folded for mailing


Card opened


What I used

Stamps - Whipper Snapper Designs - (MY782) Tropical
Love
Sentiment - Penny Black-From the heart (30-207)
Paper - Pebbles
Stencil - Memory Box (88506) Texture Rings and Puddles
Border punch - EK Success
Heart die - Sizzix (657021) Hearts Primitive #3
Spellbinders die - (S4-346) Labels Twenty-Two

How it;s done

Card base is 41/8 x 51/2 inches
folded tent style

open card and fold the front in (valley fold)
to create easel.

Line the inside with coordinating designer paper

Cut 3/4 inch from bottom of the front of the card
and adhere border, so that the inside designer paper
peeks out at the bottom of the card when closed.

Die cut your colored stamped design. Die cut a piece of acetate.
 Die cut a frame with the same die, using the one you cut the stamped image
with and the next smaller one in the set. Adhere the acetate die cut to the frame
 Adhere foam tape around the frame making sure not to leave any edge not taped.
Place small amount of small micro beads or glitter on the stamped image
and adhere the frame over it to create the shaker.

Adhere the Shaker to the bottom portion of the card only.
Adhere the sentiment inside using pop dots, so that the
easel will stand alone.  Decorate the front with small hearts
and rhinestones.

BSS MONDAY IDEA - Sparkle Heart

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

This week's idea is to use a double sided Adhesive sheet to glitter the
background on an open heart die.

Click on the pictures to see an enlarged version to see detail.


The finished card


Close up of glittered heart




White textured card stock base is 6 x 5 inches tent folded.

Die cut the heart in the center of a 6 x 41/4 inch piece of white card stock
(Spellbinders -Vines of passion die 9S2-4022)
Cut the border out at the bottom of this same piece.
(Spellbinder's - A2 Scalloped Borders 2 (S5-214)
On a separate piece of pink card stock, 6x1 1/4 inch die cut
the border again.  Adhere the pink border to the white heart piece,
so the borders match.
Adhere a piece of designer paper 6x1 1/2 inches to the bottom of the
card base.
Adhere a 3 1/2 x 6 inch piece from of adhesive sheet to the card base.
Be sure to burnish it with your bone folder so the top protective layer will
come off easily.
Remove the top protective layer and adhere the piece with heart and
borders, being sure to press down on the heart so it is stuck too.
Now sprinkle a generous amount of glitter and rub around with your
fingers before tapping the excess off.
Front Sentiment (My Favorite Things - Home Spun Hearts clear set
Inside Sentiment - Penny Black-From the Heart clear set (30-207)
Inside border - Martha Stewart

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great day.
Until later...........

Do You See What I See

Hello friends.  Another cold front is passing through, and I am nursing a slight sore throat and cough.

I decided as I was putting away my Christmas papers and stamps and dies, that I would not put away the ones I hadn't used yet.  The one I am showing you today, I bought last year and didn't even ink it up this year....until today!

A CAS card for me today.  Really unusual for me, but
wanted to try my hand at coloring with distress inks.



I stamped on water color paper, colored with distress inks
and a water pen.  Added the sentiment which is a
Memory Box die, and added the bow.
There are ten birds and animals in this little
scene.  Stickles on the star and snow on the ground.

Going to enter this card into the challenge at
ABC Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes with the option of Antlers

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later.....
