Ugh! SNOW! They keep changing the totals but we are to get between 5 to 18 inches! That’s way too much! I know that I keep on whining but I’m over Winter already! Hopefully this will be the last hurrah and we will be able to move on to warmer temps! It was another nice day at the Store! My friend Arnise stopped by and Angie was in too. I got some things accomplished and also brought my stuff home, the Store will be closed today. I’ll get to craft in the Stampin’ Galley! I had a quick dinner with my Parents when I got home, chatted with Heather for a bit and then Jim came by. We watched YouTube videos and just hung out. A nice relaxing evening with a friend, who could ask for anything more?!
It’s Tuesday and that means that it’s time for a new Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! This week we ask you to join us and make a shaker card…
I do love to make a shaker and it’s been a while since I have. I started out by cutting a piece of Solar White 80lb with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Ovals Stackables Lawn Cuts and using both sides to add some Fish Tank and Merman Ink to another piece of Solar White 80lb with my Mini Ink Blending Tool. All of my images are from the Sunny Studio Froggy Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped them all in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in with Copics. They are then cut out with the Coordinating Dies. I adhered the Lilly pad to my background and stamped the ripples in Fish Tank. The cattails and flower are then added and the sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. To make my frame I cut out a piece of Deep Blue with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles Stackables Lawn Cuts and adhered a piece of Acetate to back with Scor-Tape. A single layer of 3M Foam Tape is added and then I sprinkled some Pretty Pink Posh Holiday Shimmer Mix Sequins onto the background and adhered the frame over it. The frog and the flies are adhered with more 3M Foam Tape onto the Acetate and then the whole thing is adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I love that super happy little frog and the flies, so cute! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Shaker Card Challenge!
