Celebrate Life Shaker Card!

Good morning! It seems to be feast or famine with me these days! What is this? My third/fourth post in a row? ;) 
 I am up on the SRM Blog today with a fun shaker card. I cut three hearts out and set those aside for a future project.  I inked the heart panel in shades of pink, orange, and yellow.  I glued a piece of acetate behind hearts and let it dry.

The piece under the hearts was water colored in coordinating colors.  I placed Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty foam tape around each heart andI snuck sequins in there before adhering.  I glued tiny cupcakes topped with rhinestones for the centers of each heart.

I added a sentiment from SRM Stickers from the Life is Good collection.  I also added silk ribbon from the Stamp Simply Store and a rhinestone as a finishing touch.

Justrite Multi-Step Don't Forget Bouquet

Hey there!  
I have another card to share with you today using a new set from JustRite.  This one is called, Don't Forget Bouquet.   I stamped the image using Versamark and then embossed it in white on water color paper.  I used my Zig Clean Brush markers.  
I am loving JustRite's new line of dimensional paints.  I added some dots to the hearts for extra depth.  The sentiment was handwritten with silver puffy paint and sprinkled with silver glitter.  I was afraid of messing up my card, so I wrote it on a piece of acetate and when it was dry, peeled it off and then glued it to my card.  
For a finishing touch I tied silver string into a bow.  I love leaving the "tails" long and flowy.  ;)
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I truly appreciate your visits!

January Release From JustRite-Sweet Flowers and Vines

Good morning my crafty friends!  It is the start of JustRite's January release! I am excited to share lots of projects with you! 
My first card is a coffee cup card.  I found this image over at the Silhouette store.

I created a shaker element using a heart die.  I glued acetate on the back.  I cut an extra coffee cup piece, used dimensional foam tape to adhere it to the back, after adding beads and sequins.  If you look closely there are 3 layers of coffee.  Rather than boring old coffee, I wanted a cappuccino. ;) I hand cut a piece of paper in the shape of the "froth", added liquid applique, and right after heating it with my heat gun, sprinkled glitter on top of it.  I took advantage of the 2 layers to create the shaker, and simply slid the "frothy" piece between them and glued it in place.

I water colored a flower and used a gorgeous new vine die from JustRite.  The sentiment is part of the brand new set called, Sweet Flowers and Vines. 
And as a last finishing touch I added dots around the perimeter of the heart and select areas of the cup using JustRite's new line of puffy paints!

I wouldn't be a good crafter if I didn't do a little enabling! ;) But you better move quick on this one, the sale ends today at 3PM! 
Be sure to stop by the JustRite blog to find more inspiration from the design team!
Have a great day!
