MFT - Mice Time to Celebrate Shaker Card

 Happy Saturday!

Today, I have a shaker birthday card for our grand-nephew to share.  The cheese background die cut is one I found on Amazon.  I glued a piece of acetate behind the die cut to create the clear front for the shaker.  Then, I added thin foam tape around the 4 large holes, filled them with clay sprinkles and added the base card.

The Mouse and sentiment are from a My Favorite Things stamp set - "It's a Mice Time to Celebrate".  I colored the image with Copic Markers and cut it out by hand, then added it to the front.

Spellbinders Hot Foil - Peony Anniversary

Happy Saturday!

Today I have an anniversary card to share.  I like to send anniversary cards to all my siblings, nieces and high school friends, so about 8 cards a year.  

The last few years, I've just made one design and then personalized it with colors from their wedding...purples, pinks, peach, yellow, blues and burgundy so it makes a really nice variety.  I even googled peonies colors and they come in so many colors, so I though this was a great hot foil plate to use this year.  The plate is from Spellbinders - Peony and I paired it with another Spellbinders glimmer plate Yana special sentiments plates with dies.

I've made 3 versions so far...purple, pink and peach.
Purple was the 1st one I made into a card, for a May anniversary.  
The hot foil is gold with pearl accents.

Copic Colors: V12, V15, V17, YG61, YG63, YG67

A Day For Daisies - Flower Maiden 1

Happy Saturday!

Today, I have a couple cards I made with a digital image from A Day For Daisies called Flower Maiden 1.  This is one of those images I purchased over 4 years ago and I don't think I ever used until now. I love the whimsy and elegance of this image, all at the same time.  I think it makes a perfect image for a birthday card.

I colored a few of these images, different hair colors and different dress color.  Above, I colored a blonde maiden in purple.  I tries to match hair color and favorite colors of the person I was making the card for.

Sweet Blooms Border - Mother's Day

Happy Saturday!

Today, I have the Mother's Day card I made this year.  I used my Glimmer Hot Foil Machine for this card.  The Hot Foil Plates are "Sweet Blooms Border" and "Yana Sentiments & coordinating dies" by Spellbinders.  

The white cardstock is Hammermill 110lb weight cardstock.  I've had great results with this cardstock, perfect impressions.  The Glimmer hot foil system uses a combination of heat and pressure to transfer the gold foil to the cardstock.  

I colored the flower border with Copic markers.
Copic Colors: RV14, RV17, RV19, YG61, YG63, YG67, Y35, Y38, E55

If you missed the post were I got into Hot Foil see the post from May 7.
