The Pink Envelope


Hey folks!

I've got a really quick post for you today. The broken pipe that cause the flooding in my craft room is getting fixed today, so I can't do anything, but this post.

I've had shaker cards on my brain A LOT lately. I think everything I look at should be made into a one! So much so, I've made a point not to make any after I made this one. I just love the interaction someone has when they receive a shaker card. You just know that they are going to shake it and really check out your card. Plus, there are soo many options out there to make these bad boys! So groovy.

Speaking of Groovy. About a month ago, I cut out about 6 or 7 different styles of cards using some SVG Cuts files, a few Hero Arts Digital Cut Files and a few other digital die cuts with my Silhouette Cameo 2. I was going to go to town making them all into shaker cards. Life got in the way however, but before it did I managed to get to the one I'm sharing with you today.

As usual, if you are interested in any of the products I've used, there will be thumbnail links for you at the end of the post.

This was incredibly easy to make. I cut out all of the pieces for the Peace Sign Card from SVG Cuts and a piece of acetate slightly smaller than the Peace Sign. I mounted on the green AC Cardstock card base with strips of Fun Foam. I threw in some white sequins and the was that! 

Groovy is a Silhouette Cut File and I downloaded it from the Silhouette Design Store. I cut this out twice in white cardstock to give it some stability and glued both of those pieces together using Ranger Multi Medium in Matte. There wasn't any special reason for that, I just like it and that's what happened to be sitting right in front of me. I then covered a small sections in Glossy Accents and added Ranger Distress Glitter over the top. Done! Easy Peasy. Once it was dry, I used Glossy Accents to attach it to the top of the Peace Sign. 

I'm looking forward to doing the rest. I feel like it may be awhile though. My craft room is a mess and might stay that way for awhile. Bummer. Where there is a will there is a way and I have plenty of will!

Until next time! 


  1. So sorry you've been dealing with flooding/repairs, but love your groovy card!!

Making An Easy One Layered Card - Featuring Avery Elle and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a super easy and super fast one layered card with you all!

It's no secret that I love to mask and build up the images on a card. However, sometimes it's great to skip the masking and get the same effect. That's what I've done on my card today folks.

I'm a sucker for butterflies and if you make them rainbow and I will clap my hands like a demented seal. For real. So today I used the Butterflies Stamp Set by Avery Elle and did some basic Copic Coloring (color choices in thumbnail links below) in a rainbow color scheme.

On Neenah White Cardstock, I stamped my images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink with my MISTI Stamping Tool. You don't need a MISTI, but I'm a manic and it's almost impossible for me to line up my stamps again with a…

The stamp set I used today is Ah-mazing! It's the Hello Lovely Stamp Set by Concord & 9th and I'm tellin ya folks, if you're looking for something that has a whole lotta wow factor AND is easy, this is your stamp set.

Using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped my Neenah White Cardstock Panel with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.

There are some really groovy stamps in the set if you wanted to just ink them up and stamp them within the outline image, but I LOVED the idea of coloring this bad boy in.

Happy-ish Monday! I don't know what in the halibut it is peeps, but every time I think I'm going to do something different. Break out some mediums I've haven't used in a while. Do something other than flowers, it's abracadabra I have myself a card panel with lots of pretty masked flowers that must be colored in with Copic's. Oy. So, stop me if you've heard this one!

As usual, I start…
