Loved making this card. I’m so ready for Spring to arrive. We have fluctuating weather here in Oklahoma. One day it is freezing the next it is 70 degrees. Soon we will be able to say Hello Spring for good!
Stamped the Roses Background and then sprayed with one of my favorite products: Glimmer Mists.
Today I’m sharing a Cricut Beautiful Shaker Card for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Challenge # 295 Sequins or other Embellishments. Sponsored by SpieglMom. Projects are to have at least one Cricut cut and Sequins or other embellishments.
For my project, I decided to make a shaker card using the Yellow Frame from the Stand & Salute Cartridge.
Cut pink texture card stock at 3.25 in wide. Use the cut image to then cut a window out of a piece of fun foam. Cut a piece of white cardstock the same size as the top, this will be the back.
I find that cutting a back the same size as the front makes putting a shaker card together much easier.
White card stock cut at 4 in x 5.25 was used for the background. The Tim Holtz stencil and Texture paste was used. Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist colors: Party Pin and Cranberry Zing colored the background. Rouge Chalk in from Brutus Monroe was used around the edges of the A2 Greeting card.
On the back piece of the shaker card stamp the Botanical Background stamp from Brutus Monroe with Embossing Ink. Then spray with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists: Party Pink and Turquoise Blue.
Stamp the Botanical Background stamp on the pink shaker card front with Rouge Chalk ink from Brutus Monroe.
Sharing a Bubble Background & Embossing ATC (Artist Trading Card) from the Maremi’s Creative Cafe #52cafecards Challenge. I joined the Creative Cafe just over a month ago and have loved very minute I’ve been in the Facebook group. There are so many talented people in this group. Go and join now, you won’t be disappointed.
Marta has begun a challenge. #52CafeCards. A weekly challenge where a word prompt is given based on the alphabet that we are allowed to interpret into an Artist Trading Card.
Since this weeks prompt is Bubbles I decided to try a technique I saw on the internet a while back. Fill a bowl with water and dish soap. Blow bubbles and then spritz with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Rake your paper, or in this case the ATC through the bubbles to pick up the color. Simple enough.
My suggestions, Use a large bowl and use one teaspoon or more of liquid dish soap. Blow lots of bubbles. Heck if you have a kid, have them blow the bubbles for you. lol The more bubbles the better. When the spray hits the bubbles they tend to pop. So the more layers of bubbles you have the better.
Fun technique. I’ll try this again. I may even hook up a small air pump from a fish tank to make the bubbles for me! Wish I would have thought of that before my video! lol
Hope this gave you another great idea of how to make a fun ATC. Using Bubble Background & Embossing ATC sure looks good to me!
Using the Calico Cottage Young Love digital images I’ll show you How to Make the Young Love ATC’s. These are great Valentine ATC’s that you can give out to friends or send in a mail swap. I plan to give these out at an event to a few friends.
Beginning January I have become a Design Team member for Calico Cottage. Being able to use her images for art projects is so much fun! The Young Love digital images I knew would be perfect for little Valentine ATC’s.
For today’s project I used these items in addition to Calico Cottages images:
A Happy Valentine’s Day Stamp – unknown maker. I’ve had this stamp for many years and I’m not sure where it came from. It may be a stamp that I got in a grab bag at a stamp convention or one that was made for me years ago.
Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven was used to stamp the Happy Valentine’s Day phrase. I love this ink as it dries fast and it is waterproof. Great for when I want to watercolor or spray mists over the top.
Tim Holtz Distressed Ink – Picked Raspberry. The distressed ink was used around all of the images and over the Happy Valentines’s Day phrase.
From the 7 Gypsies Trousseau Stamp set that has been discontinued I used the phrase “from my heart”. This was embossed in gold using Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink and gold detail embossing powder.
Little Heart stamps are from Brutus Monroe Stamp Club – Little Monster for January 2017. I’m loving this little set with all the stamps so much can be done.
One of my favorite items to use is Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on this project I used Viva Pink (discontinued but the same as Vintage Pink) and Cork.
For a final touch a small self adhesive rhinestones from Paper Studios were used. I just love adding a little bling when I can.
Here is a video of the process.
These were super fun and turned out cute. Since it was a digital download I can reprint these as many times as my printer will allow. So long as I don’t run out of ink. lol If I needed to make 20 or 30 I could very easily since most of the supplies were things I had on hand.
Hope this inspires you. Now that you know How to Make the Young Love ATC’s, how many will you make?
Ever wanted to see how an embossing resist works? Head over to the Brutus Monroe blog and see the full details on how I made this card.
Love how the embossing shines through. I also was able to use up one more pink envelope from my stash. This has been a goal for 2016 that will continue into 2017. Will continue to use up the things I have in my studio the best I can. Hope you are able to find ways to use up things in your studio in the new year as well.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today.

Embossing Resist Coloring your own paper, did you know you can color your own paper? Well you can, with the help of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, it’s easy.
I’ve been playing with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist for a few months now and I love this stuff. Also got a new stamp set from Brutus|Monroe, Beautiful. The set has beautiful swirls around the words and lots of great images to go with the words.
This Pink and White card turned out beautiful! In my stash I have a box of hot pink envelopes that I’m on a mission to use up. Well making this card has helped me use one more of those envelopes. In fact I made two of these cards I liked how it turned out.
I could see myself stamping out the words and hearts on several sheets of white paper and then going back with different colors of Glimmer Mists. Each card could be a different color. That is the beauty of stamping.
What colors would you use for this project? Looking at my boxes of envelopes I see that I have some purple and teal envelopes. Maybe that is what I’ll do next!
This was a very easy card to make with an embossing resist coloring your own paper. This video shows the whole process.

This post is all about Stash Challenge Dies 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. The current weekly challenge is to go back and choose a previous challenge. Looking back through the challenges was fun. It was a hard decision but I finally found one that I wanted to use, from the May 2016 challenge.
Digging around in my stash of dies I found the label or note die from Stampin Up and an old Star die from Sizzix. I knew that these would be perfect for this project.
Thankful that I have a stash of chipboard in my studio, I die cut one of each. Using acrylic paint I covered the star until it was coated to my liking. Once the paint was dry I then sprayed with Summer Chalk Shimmer Sprays – Zest – Brutus|Monroe and a gold/copper Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels.
When the spray dried I used the MISTY to help with positioning the poinsettia from the Sketched Holiday Set – Brutus|Monroe. Stamped with the Brutus|Monroe embossing ink, then gold embossing powder.
A technique I like to use, take a Zig two way glue pen and go around the edge of the star, then dip into gold embossing powder. Heat the powder until it shines gold.
Time to tackle the label or note die from Sizzix. Because this is for the Stash Challenge Dies 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and I have decided to use more than one die. Taking the Mini Chalk Ink pad Suede from Brutus|Monroe I went around the edge.
I just love the Tissue paper from Canvas Corp Brands, found in a mixed media pack. Tearing a strip and using white glue I glued a strip at a diagonal on the label die. Then filled the corners with additional strips. Sprayed with Summer Chalk Shimmer Sprays – Zest and a gold/copper Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels, I love the shimmer it adds.
Reapply the Mini Chalk Ink pad Suede around the edges and between the strips. While the ink is still moist on the paper dip into gold embossing powder and heat. This really makes such a beautiful background, makes me think of a gilded box that has aged.
Tied a bow out of a cream and gold ribbon. Don’t forget to shop in the Christmas ornament isle the next time you go out. That is where I found the little gold and glitter stars. Using three of the stars and a glue dot I placed these at the top point of the star with the ribbon glued with white glue. The star was layered on top of a small strip of burlap, then the label. Last I used a gold embossed napkin.
This is a very elegant Christmas card and I feel that it was perfect for this Stash Challenge Dies 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.
Today I shared a Non Traditional Merry Christmas Card over at Brutus|Monroe.
Most everyone thinks of normal traditional colors for Christmas, the red and green. This project needed to be something different! Love using the Summer Chalk Shimmer Sprays to color the images. It is a great way to think outside the box when creating. Using non traditional colors like teal and light green really makes this card pop!
In this project I used the new Christmas flowers Sketched Holiday and Holiday Sentiments from Brutus Monroe. Use my link to place your first order and get a discount. Help me earn brownie points with Brutus Monroe, by using the link provided.
