CTMH Technique Blog Hop Shake It Up

Welcome to this month's Technique Blog Hop, featuring Shake it Up! 

I am going to create a Shaker Card, because they are so fun to create, and give! Today I am focusing on a completely clear, easy and FAST shaker Card!

If you are coming from Melissa's Blog you are on the right track. Let's go ahead and get started!

First we will start with the supplies used - 

Now on to the project -

Using my stamp set and thin cuts, I stamped out an umbrella, beach chair, lemonade glass and sentiment.
I created an ombre effect on my umbrella seen above with lagoon, glacier and sapphire inks.The Beach chair is stamped in Lagoon and Desert Sand. Next my stamped images were adhered to the outside of a 4x6 Flip Flap.

I adhered two black sequins to the inside of the Flap-flap, behind the sentiment. I am using these as placeholders for my gift card. this way when the shaker card is shaken,the gift card stays in place.

Next I filled my flip flap with sequins from my stash. Before removing the adhesive strip I cut the ends of this area down slightly to fit snugly inside the flip flap. To cover up the adhesive, I added some shimmer trim. 

I really enjoyed working with the Flip Flaps and am excited to see what the other ladies have created for their Shake it Up project. Please consider leaving a comment before heading to Annemarie's Blog to see her Shake It Up creation.

#100 Day Project - Weekly Update

Weekly Update - Day 26 through Day 39

Welcome back! Lets jump right in where we left off last week, with Day 26.

DAY 26 - Wet Embossed Look as a Card 
Here are 3 cards from Day 25's tip, on wet embossing

These took no time at all, and add tons of character!  I challenge you to try something new today! 

Day 27
Let's Jump on to a Scrapbook Layout - The Huge Cut Above Kit "Little One" Featured in April was a HUGE Hit - Using my Cricut, I changed the title from little one to, 'Love You Beary Much'... my workshop guests LOVED this...guess what the little one title can be utilized on a card!!! - If you missed out on this kit - I have just a few left in Stock and you can purchase one here -> "Little One Kit" This includes the Love You Beary Much Title.

Day 28

Two ADORABLE cards to show off. 

"Always be yourself, unless you can be a unicorn, then always be a unicorn"

"Have a magical day"

These two cards were created with the "little dreamer card making stamp + thin cut bundle" and the "little dreamer paper"...which is brand new! 

I challenge you to create a simple card! Back to basics! 

Day 29
Lets look at these cute cards! Embossing to the next level! 

Two Tone Embossing - or what i have been calling it. I went on a roll with this technique....I created a YouTube video showing you exactly how i created these cards you can watch that here ---> DanYellScraps Tutorials

One, Two, Skip a Few - Day 35
Shaker card with faux watercolor embossed background - exclusive inks rubbed on the inside of an embossing card, with the inks overlapping to avoid harsh lines. Two Circle dies cut at the same time, to create a white border for the shaker window. unicorn suspended on clear fishing wire, to give the floating appearance a real feel. :) I challenge you to get creative.

Day 36
Embossed look without an embossing folder!
To achieve this look - I die cut 20 hearts from the Hearts Thin Cut Set. This ahs to be my favorite Set, because you actually get two hearts from each cut - you get an outline heart - then you also get the negative space heart. 

I ran each heart outline through my xyron sticker maker
I adhered all of the hearts in a random, but planned fashion. I knew I wanted the edge hearts to "fall off the edge".

I flipped my base over, and cut off the overlay! 

Here is the final result, with a raised banner stamped in the "thanks form the bottom of my heart" from the happy heart stamp set.


Using Negative space from Die cuts (FRUGAL RIGHT!!!)

While the technique is the same as Day 36 - the result is completely different. Remember don't throw away those negative images when Die Cutting. Save them, because they can be used in your next creative project! 

Day 38

Double embossing - To be honest, i didn't really care for the results from this technique. 

You emboss your cardstock, then you will put the card stock back in the folder facing the opposite side you originally embossed on and off centered. This works really well with large background images such as trees.- That being said - I found a way to use these for Day 39 - so stay tuned. 

Day 39

Sunburst Card using double embossed cardstock....Rubbing three yellow inks over these double embossed images - i was able to "save" this technique from my trash can.
Super simple card - with lots of character. 

What would you create from a double embossed image?!?!

Thanks for stopping - see you next week for some more tips, techniques, and projects.
