Post#156 Shaker Money Pouch using Fuse Tool

Ever since I saw the tutorial for a shaker money holder/pouch by Vicki, it has been on the top of my ‘try to make’ list…..the only thing stopping me was that I didn’t have enough sequins to fill the pouch…so in the end I just couldn’t wait any longer and this is my first ever attempt…I’m sure I will try more of these when I finally am able to buy a big bag of sequins…but here’s the first…
If you click on the link and follow the tutorial video in Vicki’s post,you will understand how easy these pouches/money holders are to create with a fuse tool….
I actually placed the die cut and stamped sentiments inside the pouch,which I later realised that I shouldn’t have…anyways,that was the front of the pouch…..on the back of the pouch I simply stamped with white stazon ink…
To decorate the pouch I have used multi-coloured rhinestones….and to close the pouch at the top I have used a wide ribbon and closed it at the top using a gold string…
Hope you liked this…..

Post#155 Thanks A Lot Card

This card would have been a simple black and white card but I added a bit of bright red just to make it eye catching….
The card base is plain black…..the top layer is white which has been stamped and heat embossed with black embossing powder…I then added a thin strip of black glitter cardstock and a strip of silver card at the base of the top layer…and stamped the sentiment at the top in red ink…
I rounded all the corners of the top layer and card base before attaching it…..and finally I added a few red rhinestones on the card….
Hope you liked this card…

On the top layer I have used distress inks and stars stencil to create a background….and stamped a ‘hip hip hooray’ stamp with Grape Soda Ranger Dye Ink….I used a tag die and stamp to create a tag to decorate the card..the top tag also has a die cut word ‘celebrate’….

Thank you so much for visiting my blog…Hope you liked today’s card….

Post#149 Embossed Birthday Card Wrapped With Gold String

After making quite a few brightly coloured cards,I wanted to make a card with a light colour theme….
First the top layer of this card has been sponged using various distress inks….then it was embossed using the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder….I wrapped a gold string around it and glued three thin strips of paper on one side…
For the sentiment stamps I used gold cardstock and stamped with black stazon ink and then punched them out using circle punches….to decorate the card I have used various tiny punches with the same gold cardstock as well as a few rhinestones…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#144 DIY Background Birthday Card

This card was so much fun to create…..mainly the background….all you need is some water soluble colour and a drinking straw…and very soon you will have one of a kind background ready for your card…
I used Peerless watercolors and a Pentel Aquash water brush…after picking up the colour I wanted,I dropped a few drops of colour on the card..it’s easier with the water brush….and then the fun started…I took a drinking straw and blew air over these droplets….very soon the water started running/spreading in all directions…I did the same with 2-3 more colours…
Since the background is the hero of this card,I did not want to hide it under unnecessary embellishments,so I simply adhered a die cut word ‘happy’ from gold cardstock and stamped the word ‘birthday’ under it…
There is a layered gold and orange butterfly and a couple of tiny ones on the card…on one side is a strip of gold and red cardstock…
This is a fun technique to try with kids…you could even create your own wrapping paper this way…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#143 Birthday Hugs Shaker Card

After trying out this shaker card technique a couple of times with circle frame dies,I wanted to try creating a shaker card with a large heart frame….

The card base is plain orange with a silver first layer and an orange top layer…two sides of all these layers have been rounded with a punch…

To create the main heart frame,I used the two largest Kaisercraft nesting hearts dies….but since I needed to die cut more heart shapes in the same size,I used Washi tape to keep the dies together….this way all the frames were exactly the same shape…there are seven frames cut from white cardstock and stuck together to create a well to house the shaker elements..

Inside the frame,I have adhered the die cut word ‘hugs’ from glitter cardstock and stamped the words ‘sending birthday’ above it…and then all that was required was to add a bit of sequins for the shaker….

There is an acetate layer glued on top to close the shaker….and the topmost heart frame has been cut out of glitter cardstock….

I really like this bright  and glittery card…hope you do too…

Post#142 Dream Catcher Encouragement Card

Post#140 Thank You For Your Kindness

At the start of this year,I’d like to thank everyone who has encouraged me a lot with their kind words and appreciation….means a lot to me….

The card I’m sharing today is made from Kraft cardstock….the top layer has been stamped with tangerine ink and a leaf stamp repeatedly to create the background….Then I randomly coloured a piece of paper with peerless watercolors and die cut them with a leaf die….

I have arranged a gold string on the top layer and attached it as well as the two leaves…the sentiment has been stamped on a gold cardstock label… added a few sequins as well…

Hope you liked this card…

Thank you for stopping by to take a look…

Post#135 Merry Christmas Green & Red Shaker Card

I made this shaker card using the WRMK fuse tool and a photo pocket…the card is not bulky at all which means that it can be posted normally with no extra postage or special packaging..

I started with a piece of green cardstock 5×12″ and scored the long side at 4″ and 8″….this is so that one section gets folded in to create the backing section for the shaker pocket….which also means that the section between the two score lines would be the front of the card and had to be die cut for the shaker to show through….I also die cut and embossed a thin frame from red card stock to go around the die cut space…

Once the shaker pocket was filled with sequins,I stamped an image of a scarecrow with white ink and attached the pocket at the back of the die cut space and glued in the backing section of the card….all that was left was to attach the stamped sentiment and the card was ready…

I’m quite pleased with how this card has turned out….hope you liked it too…
