Here’s a quick little shaker card note that I created using some fun dies and stamps. The inside of the shaker card is filled with yellows, golds and some green butterflies to go for a twilight theme. Sometimes cards don’t need to say a lot – this is one of them and a simple note to say I love you.
Hello friend! For this project I pulled out my stash of dies to create the scenery and then colored up Audrina Swinging By Tire Swing to enjoy it. It’s been so hot this summer that I’m ready for cooler temperatures and for those autumn colors to emerge. Sigh. It will be a while for that to happen. But in the mean time, I hope you enjoy this project.
I was inspired by the Loads of Fun washing machine set and thought it would be funny to have a spinning load of socks – all of them mismatched, of course. So when I spotted the Reveal Wheel, I knew that was the combination I needed. The trick was to combine the shaker card idea with the wheel. What I thought was going to be easy ended up taking forever. But it worked and it’s so fun to play with.
Sometime little notes are needed which I have made a few. They have been quick to put together and I’ve enjoyed using the simple images from Lawn Fawn. This one for example – I stamped the characters in black which makes coloring very quick and less time consuming that no-lines coloring. Plus these little notes are a great way to brighten up someone’s day.
Every once in a while there has to be a card that doesn’t turn out the way we wanted and this one of them that I couldn’t fix. I’m just not happy with it. I think it’s the laundry! I might have to color up a new spin and change it.
For this bookmark, I decided to represent my family by their favorite colors. I was surprised everyone chose either red or blue – I thought for sure there would be a pink or green involved. But to coordinate with the paper I chose, I decided I would choose black for myself since black absorbs all colors and therefor would be considered a rainbow in my mind. 🙂 White is a lack of color. It’s a geeky thing or perhaps just a me thing.
