Shaker Card using Simon Says Stamp July Monthly Card Kit

Welcome back everyone. I know in the video I say that I didn't have any  "good" yellow cardstock. Which is kind of true. But in the photos you will see that I used two different cardstocks as props. While they are not "bad" shades of yellow by any means they weren't what I wanted to match the ink of the suns. Ok, just had to throw that out there!

Watch the video here.



So this card colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown challenge (links below), which were yellow, gray, kraft and white. What a nice sunny color scheme! It's been hot here in the PNW well hot for us. I hope you all are comfortable where ever you are!



One thing about this card was that I did use one of the Tim Holtz Motiv papers, which was in a past monthly kit. You can still purchase the full 12x12 pack of this embossed paper! (link below)


The few Papertrey Ink products I used are; Heavy weight vellum and Clear cardstock

Deadpool Birthday Card



Watch the video here.

As you can see in the video the actual Deadpool portion of this card is super simple to make. I used my WRMK nesting circle dies in diameters of 3in, 2.75in and 1in. I added splatter to the background with Candied Apple distress ink and a Tim Holtz stencil.


The title was stamped with Ink Road's Block Alphas in black ink and the rest of the words are formed using a Brutus Monroe clickable letter stamp set. Which was really easy to for the words I wanted to use for the outside and inside of this card. I tore the paper around the sentiment and used a Xyron sticker maker to easily adhere them to the front. This card was definitely all about being quick and easy.

Simple Eclipse card | Distress Ink Watercolor | Concord and 9th Painted Rose


So with the Color Throwdown challenge hitting their 500th challenge I knew I had to make a card for this occasion and participate. No video this is just a quick post because I have something else scheduled for Monday's video.



I took a piece of Arches cold press watercolor paper and used the Concord and 9th Painted Rose stamp to offset to roses. I heat embossed with Versamark ink and Ranger white embossing powder. Then I painted in the roses with shades of Distress Inks.

I used the fabulous Chipped Sapphire distress ink on the background. That color is just a gorgeous blue! For the splatter I used the Kuretake Gansai Tambi Starry Colors (yellow gold shade) for the gold shimmer splatter. Then added white splatter with Copic Opaque white. I also used the same shade of gold to color in the leaves of the roses.


Once dry I tried the eclipse technique. I'm not sure who came up with this first. But I've seen it around and thought it would be fun to try. I used the Simon Says Stamp hugs die to die cut the blue background 4 times. Then I took some scrap Neenah 110lb paper and cut 8 die cuts of the hugs die, to layer. I stacked to of the white hugs together then added the blue hugs on top, then they could be glued on to the card. It gives just a bit of dimension and blends in so nicely but you can still see it. I'm going to have to try this one again!
