Hi there, everybody! It's been a little while since my last post! Did you all have a nice Christmas holiday? Spend lots of time with family and friends and eat lots of good food? Oh, I hope you did! :) Well, as you can tell it is time for another Timeless Tuesday Challenge. This week, our Guest Hostess is the wonderfully talented Jessi Fogan! She has challenged us to make a shaker card....how FUN! You can read all of the details here.
As as extra little bonus, here is a fabulous tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers. For my card, I decided to use the new Lots of Thoughts set. I love that little champagne glass and strawberry! I also decided to make this card a little on the shabby side...a technique that I admire in cards but struggle with in execution. The patterned papers are from an Authentique 6x6 pad and I also used Flourishes Classic White card stock and papers from the Color Made Easy Poppy Collection.
My image was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I used the Spellbinders' Card Creator Fancy Postage Edge and A2 Card Creator A sets for my window and panels. Then, I did a little stitching around my card. For my shaker element, I used a variety glass beads to serve as my champagne bubbles. A little lace, ribbon, and the sentiment oval finish this card off. I originally planned on this being a New Year's card but with the use of these pink papers, I think it could be used for other special occasions too.
Well, that is all for my little card, but you should really check out what my team mates have created....I am sure there is a whole lotta shakin' goin' on.....lol! I hope you can play along with us this week for this super fun challenge....be sure you link up your creation for a chance to win a prize too! I can't wait to see what you create! I hope you have a wonderful New Year's and I'll be seeing you next week with another fun challenge! Take care...
