A Shaker Card - It's a Brand New Day - AVSC


Hi all,
I have another card to show you, this one is a shaker card on a easel base.
Are you loving this paper yet from Aunty Vera Scrap and Craft,
echo-park-coffee-12x12-co-ordinating-solids-paper-pack/ 

I am loving it ..

I created this card in two parts for you..
Part one: The Shaker.
All the bits..


I die cut the cut apart for the front of the shaker card with the Credit Card Sleeve and Tags eileen-hull-credit-card-sleeve-tags/ die I chose as an add on to my box.. 


 Using the Credit Card Sleeve and Tags die, tape the two frames together as shown with washie tape and cut out..


The frame...



I die cut the frame as shown above, the large front of the shaker card, a large piece of acetate and a larger clack cardstock piece for the back of the shaker card for stability..



Stamp the girl from the Coffee Understands - Picket Fence Studios (core Product) on to watercolour paper, colour her in using Distress Inks. Stamp her pants and top and coffee cup and her book on to different papers and fussy cut them out.  


I ended up fussy cutting her completely out. Adhere all the bits on her as shown.. 


I placed a little of the washie tape onto cardstock and fussy cut the tiny cup to place around her coffee mug and in the actual shaker piece..


Using the basic steps for creating a shaker card finish it off with a wooden cup cake.. 
The Credit Card Sleeve and Tags die is a perfect set for shaker cards..

 Part two:
The Card Base
Stamp around the two mats with the picket-fence-studios-coffee-understands-clear-stamp-set/  


Cut one piece cardstock at 3 3/4 inch x 9 1/2 inch, fold in half and on one side fold in half again as show in photo. (Easel Card)..
Cut one piece at 3 3/4 inch x 4 3/4 inch.


Cut four pieces of the solid cardstock from the Core Products at 2 1/8 inch x 3 1/2 inch
Ink the edges with frayed Burlap Distress Ink..


Adhere two of the pieces on the inside of the card as shown.


Adhere the 3 3/4 inch x 4 3/4 inch as shown to the base card remembering to only adhere the bottom half..


Adhere the other two pieces of cardstock to the back of the card.



Adhere the two stamped blue mats 3 1/2 inch x 4 1/2 inch as shown.
Adhere a cut a part on the bottom of the card as shown.
Adhere the pink embossed mat 3 1/4 inch x 4 1/4 inch as shown

Me and Heat

Hi all,
Wowza has it been hot here.. We are having a heat wave over in Tasmania and we sure know it..
I don't do so well with it being so hot and it is strange because I loved the heat
when I was younger so go figure..
Now I just seem to melt like a big bar of sludge lol and my poser bill is getting higher because of the air conditioner lol 
My daughter Cindy said to me Come down and we will get in to the pool and here I am holding the two little ones with the star trek hat on.. Can you see me..



I think the kids are trying to drown me here lol


Then they go to their other nan's and go down to the beach , all I can say is it is certainly hot enough for both lol  Oh to be a kid again Sigh!!!

Miss Charlie is having a rest.. Hard work you know playing in the water...


Miss Astaria is like well hurry up, I am playing in the wet sand here.


Miss Emmie is oh Look at me I am so innocent and look like an angel .. 


Ooh I would love to be doin this right now lol


love these grandkids xx

Pivot Tag Card


Hi all,
Today I was sitting in my craft room/ studio thinking what should I do now..
 I looked around and spotted a die I have had for awhile but never used (like 60% of my things lol) and decided yep I am going to do that..  Pivot Tag Card die by Karen Burniston..


SO the search for paper begins, yep 10 minutes goes by and I picked up a pad and thought that will do.. Figures out after a few tries how to use the die and voila the card is created.

I love this A5 card and can see myself creating different ones with the die.. 


The punch is from Ek Success, I simply punch hello out five times with the top one being from the gorgeous paper..


The paper is from Heartfelt Creations called the Countryside Evening..


Isn't this so cute and comes with the pivot Tag Card die.. 


I just love this paper.. The butterflies are from Ek Success..


I hope I have inspired 
you to create
glorious things
Hugs

A Card - It's a Brand New Day - AVSC


Hi all, 
Today I have a card to show you using the gorgeous papers I received in my box of goodies for the Creative Team Aunty - Vera Scrap & Craft (AVSC).. The Core products were Coffee Cardstock and Coffee paper pad by Echo Park Paper Co and a stamp set from Picket Fence Studios 'Coffee understands'. 
I lost my pattern for this card but found one by Sigrid Klingenberg, in an old magazine that is missing most of the pages lol  

- 20.5cm -
I cut the base from White Cardstock and the 1st mat from the blue paper (core products) in the box. The 2nd mat is the patterned cardstock from the (core products) in the box..  
Measurements as follows:
Cut Card base at 20.5cm x 15cm - white cardstock

From Blue Cardstock - 
Cut two 4.5cm x 14.5cm 
 - Cut six 3cm x 2cm 
- Cut one 9.5cm x 9cm 
-Cut one 10 x 9.5cm

From Patterned Cardstock -
- Cut two panels 4cm x 14cm
- Cut one 9cm x 8.5cm
- cut six 2.5cm x 1.5cm   

I also embossed a piece of the gorgeous pink cardstock with the add on embossing folder Tim Holtz ' On The Go'. for a panel behind the journal card.


After adhering all the paper together I got the ephemera pack out and chose three flags to place on top of the card wrapping them in a bit of washie tape first. The coffee ephemera name was place on top of the middle flag with 3D foam tape.  


I punch out two coffee cup tops from a piece of the patterned paper and painted them with Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I adhered them with 3D foam tape on each side. 


I love the confetti I chose as a add on to my box this month. I also painted flowers and odds and ends with the Nuvo Crystal Glaze and Kindy Glitz.. And isn't that embossed pink panel just wonderful..


I thought this card needed something else so I coloured the heart in with Distress ink on the tea pot and some Nuvo Crystal Glaze. Again I popped it on with 3D foam tape.


The finished card .. I just love how all this came together..


I Hope I have
Inspired you to Create
Glorious Things
