80's Art

or...the perfect card for a 6 year old girl:

and the inside:

The front is a shaker card full of fun and the inside I used the square I cut out for the front for the sentiment. I tried to add it to the front, but never got the design to look quite right. Then, brilliance descended and placed the sentiment inside another easel. 

When my niece saw this card, she squealed. She called it perfect and immediately made one. Hers had more bling than even mine and a lot more balloons!! 

When I first saw this paper on the Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Preorder in May, I thought I'd love it. Then I got it and and found it hard to work with. However, once I went all out with the combination of designs, it worked. So the lesson is: Go Big or Go Home.

Shaker cards have never been easier with Stampin' Up!'s Foam Adhesive Strips. All I have to do is make a square of foam to contain my Sprinkles Punched pieces and sequins. Easy. Clare, at age 6, found it "not as hard as I thought." I hope she doesn't think that all future cards will be shaker cards!

Happy Stamping!

Flourish Resist Ombre Video Tutorial

Quick. Easy. Cute. Those are my favorite kinds of cards to create. Today's share is a card and technique that is versatile and fun.

But, first, the card:

The ombre effect is pretty cool. I used a Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugarplum on the Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper, which comes pre-embossed with beautiful patterns. Simply roller on ink with the new sponge rollers. Then, slice the paper at an angle. Adhere, add embellishments, and voila'! a great card!

Today, I have a video to share of this card.

Happy Creativity!

Shoot for the Moon!

I am on a roll-literally, with this card:

The shooting star revolves around the world, which is just perfect for any celebration. 

Stampin' Up! has made these cards easier than ever with the Spinning Star Framelits. Just cut the base, adhere using foam tape, and add the moving element,

Some people use washers, but I find pennies have more weight and create better spins. 

I used my Many Marvelous Markers to color the images, along with Clear Wink of Stella for some sparkle. 

Happy Creativity!
