Shaker on Top of a Shaker | Double Shaker Card | #TeamTinyAllShookUp


Hey Procraftinators! I am back with another Team Tiny video hop! This month, our theme is shaker cards. If you aren't familiar with Team Tiny, we are a group of YouTube creators who have 1,000 or less subscribors. Which means, our channels are not monetized - NO commercials! It also means that we, as small creators, are just trying to get off the ground and would appreciate your likes, comments and for you to hit that subscribe button, if you like our content. Below, you will find a link to my video. In the title and the description box of that video, you will find the unique hashtag for this hop, #TeamTinyAllShookUp. When you click that hastag, over on YouTube (not here), it will bring up all the other videos included in this hop and you can binge away on our content. Easy peasy!

I started by ink blending my card panel with Distress Inks in Antique Linen, Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot. Then, I splattered some water from my water sprayer and finished it off with a DIY shimmer spray that I make out of Perfect Pearls in the color Perfect Pearl and water. I quickly dried it with my heat tool.


Next, I went to work on stamping my shaker card window. I save my Cricut mat covers for stuff like this, however, you can use any acetate you wish - old packaging, craft acetate, embossable acetate, duralar, etc. I'm cheap and don't make shaker cards very often, so I choose to save the plastic covering from my Cricut mats. It works. I cut 2 circles the same size using my Cricut. I measured the starburst stamp from My Favorite Things - Say it in a Starburst stamp set and determined what size circle would work best for my needs. Then, I cut 2 of those circles. I also created a white cardstock frame to go with those circles. After my pieces were cut, I stamped the starburst and the sentiment "You Rock" in white opaque StazOn Ink. After I was done stamping with the StazOn, I used the StazOn cleaner to remove the ink from my stamps. I have heard varying things on whether or not the StazOn Cleaner is ok for photopolymer stamps. So, what I do is clean the stamp real well to get the StazOn ink off, because I have heard that ink itself is definitely bad to leave on your stamps, no matter what kind of stamp you have. Then, once the stamp is clean of ink, I take the stamp to the sink and I wash it thoroughly with soap and water to remove the harsh chemicals of the StazOn cleaner. Not sure if this is what you are supposed to do, but it's what I do. I don't use StazOn often, but so far, so good, no stamps have been harmed.



Next. I took the cardstock frame that I made with my Cricut and applied 1/8in Scor tape to the back of it and applied it to my acetate. This frame is to hide the foam tape that will be applied to the back of the acetate to form the shaker. If this doesn't make sense now, it will later. I carefully lined up my frame with my acetate. I made them the exact same size and I didn't want any overlap between the two. Plus, since Scor tape is a dry adhesive, there was no wiggle room here, like you have with a wet adhesive.

Next, I took my 1/2in XFasten Foam tape and lined it up in my paper trimmer and cut it to approximately 1/8in strips. I don't have any foam tape that is this width, so I had to make do. I don't cut very straight with scissors, so using my trimmer seemed to be the logical option here. I was afraid that my foam tape with stick too well to my trimmer, but to my surprise, it did not.


Once the foam tape was cut into very thin strips, I folded it in half so it was double the thickness and then I removed the backing paper so that it was easy to bend and maneuver in the shape that I needed it to be. I then took it and shaped it around my circle shaker piece. I made sure that each strip butted up to the next strip until I went all the way around the circle. You want to make sure that there are no gaps between the strips, otherwise you shaker bits may escape and make a mess. No one wants that. All my sequins and confetti are from Nuvo and will be listed in my supplies section at the end of this post.

I repeated the process for the lower, rectangular shaker. However, I made the strips slightly wider and I did not do them double thickness. I probably should've because this shaker portion does not shake quite as well as the circular one does. However, it is still a perfectly adequate cared, regardless.


Once I sealed up both shaker portions, it was time to adhere them to each other. I used 1/8in score tape to go around the back of the circular shaker to attach it to the center of rectangular shaker. Easy peasy!







I hope you enjoyed my card today. Don't forget to check out my video and click on that hashtag over on YouTube to see the other videos in this hop!

Concord & 9th Grateful for Everything | Delaney Jane Cards 500 Subs Hop

Hey Procraftinators! I am so excited that today is Renee, from Delaney Jane Cards' 500 Subs Celebration Hop! She recently got to the 500 subscriber milestone on her YouTube channel and we are all celebrating by being apart of this video hop for her. There will be a $25 Gift Certificate to the Not 2 Shabby shop awarded to one lucky commenter! Open to US or International residents. The timeframe to enter is open for one week. You must comment on the videos on YouTube, NOT here on my blog. There is more info over there in my description box.

Ok, now, that we have the housekeeping out of the way, we can get to the card. I chose to use the Concord & 9th Grateful for Everything stamp set for the majority of my card. I love the big beautiful, floral image. 

I started by stamping out the whole arrangement with Gina K Amalgam Ink on Fabriano Hot Press Watercolor Paper in 140lb. Then, I only inked up the large peony in the middle and stamped in out on the same watercolor paper. It wasn't a clean stamping, as far as only getting the large peony. I didn't wipe down the image to only get the flower. I didn't care what else got stamped as long as the large peony was stamped nice and crisp. I planned on fussy cutting the peony and 2 leaves out when I was done coloring it. I did not show any of my watercoloring on camera for the video, as there was a time limit to the hop and I am an extremely slow watercolorist. Even speeding up the video, it takes me forever! I did use my Dr. PH Martin's Hydrus Watercolors, which I have been loving! I've been playing around with color mixing and figuring out how to get more colors out of the 1 set that I have. It's been fun!
After  coloring, I stamped the large floral image on a sheet of Avery Removable Label paper and cut the image on my Scan N Cut.  I used it to mask the large floral image that I stamped on my card panel. Once the image was masked, I used Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass to stencil through the Neat & Tangled Modern Triangle Stencil. I finished on the edges of my panel with just a tiny bit of Distress Ink in Mermaid Lagoon to give it a bit of interest. I removed the stencil, but before removing the mask, I lightly sprayed the panel with a DIY Mica Mist that I make out of Perfect Pearls and water. You don't want to saturate that Avery Label Paper mask too much though. It's not meant to get wet. You would want a real masking paper for wet mediums.. 

I removed the mask and then moved onto my sentiment stamping and finishing the inside of my card. I started by stamping the floral image on the inside of my card with Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass. Distress Ink doesn't stamp the greatest, but the inside of your card doesn't have to be perfect. I wanted a color that matched my card perfectly and wasn't going to be be hard to see when I wrote over it. Tumbled glass was used on the front of the card and was light enough that I could write over it no problem. 

Next, I stamped my inside sentiment from the Altenew Quilled Elegance stamp set that said "You are my favorite." I use the sentiments from the stamp set a ton. I just love them. I stamped that in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, so that it was crisp and clear to read. 
I moved on to the front sentiments. I used the sentiments in the Concord & 9th Grateful for Everything stamp set. I picked the scripty "Grateful" and a plain font that said "for you." I stamped them in VersaMark and heat embossed them in Ranger Gold Embossing powder. 
Once done with the front sentiments, I glued my card front to my card base using Nuvo Deluxe adhesive. I finished off by applying my large peony that I fussy cut and colored separately with foam tape. 

I hope you enjoyed the card for today. Please make sure that you visit Renee's channel at Delaney Jane Cards and give here some love. The next stop in the hop can be found in the description box over on my VIDEO.

Taylormadecards4u's Passport to Italy Kit - Design Team Project

Today, I am back with another design team project for Taylormadecards4u.com! This month, we are working with the Passport to Italy Kit, pictured below.

I chose to make 3 different cards this month using mostly the kit, but I did add a couple other elements that I cut using my Cricut.

For the first card, I decided to cut down one of the larger papers to card front size - 4in x 5.25in. I chose the one with the grapes, because I thought it represented Italy quite well. You know, with the whole wine culture and whatnot. I distressed the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I then, took one of the pieces of ephemera, uploaded it into Design Space, chose a font and used Cricut's Print the Cut feature to print the tag and then used the write feature to write on the tag. I wrote the sentiment "Life is what happens between coffee and wine." I thought it was a sentiment that could be fitting for everyday use. Once that was cut out, I distressed the edges of it with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. I chose a piece of burgundy ribbon from my stash and adhered it with score tape in areas that would not be noticeable, attached to tag with foam tape and attached to whole panel to the card base. I finished off the card by using Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew over the grapes to give them dimension.



For the next card, I chose one of the card sized panels with the cursive writing on it. I cut it down to 4in x 5.25in and then distressed the edges in Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I went to Design Space and put a heart shape on my mat and use a rectangle to slice it into 3 pieces. I changed each piece into a different color - red, white and green - to represent to represent the colors of the Italian flag. Once I cut that, I inked the edges of each piece in Distress Oxide. For the red, I used a mixture of Aged Mahogany and Fired Brick. For the white, I used Hickory Smoke. For the green, I used Pine Needles.  I attached the 3 pieces together using foam tape and then attached them to my card panel. I also cut out the words, Mi Amore in a script font several times and layered those up and attached them to the heart, covered them in Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen and then covered them in Glossy Accents.  As a finishing touch, I added a few Nuvo Crystal Drops in Simply White to the card.

 
Last, but not least, for my third and final card, I used the scripty background paper from the kit again. I chose some of the ephemera that to me, screamed travel theme - the luggage tag, a postage stamp, and a postcard and attached them to the card panel. When I did the luggage tag, I uploaded it into Design Space and added the date and the departing destination as USA, just for fun! I also cut out the words "Bon Voyage" from my Cricut and stacked them up several times for dimension. I covered the words in Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen and then covered them in glossy accents.  As a finishing touch, I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ebony black randomly on the card.
