See the Hello Spring Greeting Card I made on the Brutus Monroe blog today. Used the New Roses Background stamp from Brutus Monroe and last years Hello Spring. Also used an image from Calico Collage Simply Spring digital images.
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!
Make sure you head over the Brutus Monroe Blog to see all the details on how this Hello Spring Greeting Card was made.
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.
What a great time to use a snow globe than this? The globe is from the Joys of the Season Cricut Cartridge. It was cut at 4.5 in. tall. The top most layer was removed as I wanted to stamp on the top layer and not have holes cut through the image.
Brutus Monroe Stamp Set Oh Deer was used. This little fat deer makes me laugh every time I see him. Stamped with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven on a scrap of white card stock and then fussy cut. Water colored with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Cork, Tattered Leather and It’s Black. Also used White High Impact paint by Tattered Angels.
VersaMark Stamp pad was mashed onto Deer image and snow globe then Ranger Clear Holographic embossing powder was applied and heat set. This gives the appearance of being inside a snow globe.
Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Brushed Corduroy applied to base of the snow globe.
Cut white card stock at 4 in. x 5.25 emboss with Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder. Use Tim Holtz Disressed Ink Tumbled Glass and blending tool to add color around the edge. Mash VersaMark stamp pad to embossed image, cover with Ranger Clear Holographic embossing powder, heat set.
Blue card stock cut at 4.23 in. x 5.47 in. adhered as the first layer on a standard A2 greeting card. Layer Snowflake background. Assemble snow globe and adhere on top of embossed layer. Use pop dots to adhere Deer on top.

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.

Today I’ll show you How to make a thinking of you card with Christmas Stamps. I got the idea because I’ve been doing so many Christmas cards and had the stamps already on my desk. But it is time to switch gears and make non Christmas cards.
Pulling some supplies from my stash I knew I could make a great Thinking of You card with these Christmas Stamps. I used the Script embossing folder from Cuttlebug, the embossing diffuser from Tim Hotz, gold and metallic green embossing powder, Versa Mark ink, Tim Hotlz Distressed ink and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists – Cork, Coffee Shop and Blarney.
The paper used was bright white cardstock and some textured green cardstock that was in my stash. I have so much paper that I have no idea where the green came from. My goal this past year was to use up as much of my stash has I can. I’ve been making progress, but I still have lots of stuff to use!
The top piece is cut at 3 inches square and then a green layer 3.25 inches. The next white layer was 4 inches by 5.25 inches. The last green layer was just shy of 5.5 inches by 4.25 inches. This last layer I like to make just a tad smaller than my standard A2 card (8.5 x 5.5 card folded in half).
Not sure where I got the Thinking of you stamp. Wish that stamp companies would print their names on the sheets of acrylic stamps. When the packaging is gone you don’t know where it came from unless you were smart and remembered to write it down or place the items in a notebook. Silly me forgot to do that. lol
There is a video of the whole process, please watch and let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today.
Now that you know How to make a thinking of you card with Christmas Stamps, what will you make?
