Shaker Cards - Simon Says Stamp July 2014 & August 2014 Card Kits

Weekend was great, had some time and was highly inspired by my youtube brigade to give a shot to the all popular Shaker cards this season.

Also I had seen Kristina Werner's 1 stamp 1 Card Friday Focus video and was highly inspired by it, so decided to create 2 Shaker Cards one with the Simon Says Stamp July 2014 Card Kit and the other with the Simon Says Stamp August 2014 Card Kit.

The difference or the USP of these cards is that I have use every element from the Card Kit, including the Shaker elements. I decided to stamp and cut the elements like envelopes from the SSS July 2014 Card Kit and the Ice Cream sticks from the SSS August 2014 Card Kit

The SSS July 2014 Kit has this lovely stamp of a small envelope, I stamped that with Ranger Archival Black ink and then coloured the envelopes using Tim Holtz Distress Markers and applied wink-a-stellar glitter to give it some character. I used a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch standard A2 size Card base. I created the back panel with Tim Holtz water colour paper and embossed hearts from the SSS July 2014 Card Kit and gave it a wash with the Festive Berries distress ink, before stamping the sentiment with the Archival Black ink. I am going to be using for the Casology challenge.

The SSS August 2014 Kit has the lovely stamp set with ice creams. I created a small ice creams by stamping the images using Ranger Archival Black ink and then coloured them using Tim Holtz Distress Markers. Again the card is a standard size A2 card. For the background panel I used Tim Holtz water colour paper and embossed the double scoop ice cream using Ranger white embossing powder and then coloured them using Tim Holtz Distress Inks. It is such a Happy Card I so loved looking at the Double scooped ice cream and the shaker full of Mini Ice creams. On this I used a Vellum as a base for the fantastic sentiment 'All you need is ice cream'

Hope you enjoyed the two shaker cards I have made for you, looking forwrad to your comments and inputs.

Kimono Card - Simple yet elegant

This is an out of turn post 'Masculine Monday' will return soon...

Here is a simple yet elegant card that can be used for any occasion.

The kimono is the traditional clothing of Japan. There are many different types of kimono worn by men, women, and children. The cut, color, fabric, and decorations of a kimono may vary according to the sex, age, and marital status of the wearer, the season of the year, and the occasion for which the kimono is worn.

The Kimono Card is a simple adaptation of this traditional outfit and can be decorated and customized for the required occasion, be it a Birthday card, Thank You Card or Miss You Card. By changing the paper, colour, it can be customized to any occasion.

Enjoy the Kimono Card
