You’ve Put a Spell on Me! Shaker Card!



OK, I’m a little addicted to the big shaker cards. These types of cards, for me, don’t take long and look very noticeable!

I stamped the witch and the frog (from the Best Witches stamp set) about 1/2″ from the bottom. I colored the bottom with the Crumb Cake Blend marker- I didn’t want them to look like they were floating if the sequins weren’t there. The witch was stamped with Memento ink and colored with Blends: Fresh Freesia, Granny Apple Green, Bronze (for her broom), SU800 (Medium Light) for her skin tone, and MD300 (Medium Dark) for her hair. The frog was stamped with Granny Apple and colored with the light Granny Apple Blends.

Using the Stamparatus, I stamped the spiders (from the Betwitching stamp set) all across the top.

The gingham paper is from the Gingham Cottage DSP.

The sentiment is from the Best Witches stamp set. I stamped on Basic White, then used the Stylish Shapes dies to die cut.

For the sequins, I used the green from the For Everything Sequins and I also used the Sparkle & Shine Sequins.

The ribbon is the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon.

Here’s my video on how to make these shaker cards:

Gnomes in Snow!


I don’t make a lot of cards that have snow- I’m in Florida! We don’t get snow! But, a few cards with snow are required!

This was a card we made in my first Holiday Cards class this year. I used to have a Holiday card class every month from June-November in my home town. When we moved, I didn’t make cards for a while until about 3 years ago. I’ve had holiday classes the last 3 years, but this year I decided to try and have one a month from June-November. So far it’s working!

I die cut the gnomes and the mushroom from the DSP. The foxes I fussy cut. The background paper is also the DSP.

I die cut two pieces of Basic White cardstock with the Gingerbread dies to make the hills. After I die cut them, I thought using the Painted Texture embossing folder would make them look like snow.

After arranging all the gnomes and foxes and gluing them down, I then added some of the white Pearlized Enamel on the showing edges of the snow hills.

The sentiment is from the gnomes stamp set. I die cut it with Stylish Shape dies.

Here’s everything I used!
