Friend: Wish I Could Give You A Squeeze - Pretty Pink Posh

  Hello there! I'm so excited to share a colorful and fun shaker card with you today. For this card, I used the amazing Layered Citrus Stencils, the Hot Foil - Friend Script, and the Citrus Stamp Set. Trust me, the vibrant colors in this card will surely bring joy to the lucky recipient. To get started, I took a white cardstock panel in the A2 size and used the Layered Citrus Stencils to stencil a fantastic citrus pattern. I used Distress Oxide Inks in Dried Marigold + Spiced Marmalade, Mowed Lawn + Twisted Citron, Spun Sugar + Kitsch Flamingo, and Squeezed Lemonade + Fossilized Amber. The layered stencils allowed me to customize the colors of the citrus fruits, making it so much fun! Next, I used the Fancy Cake Dies to create a lovely teal frame. I attached a sheet of acetate to the back of the frame and added foam tape around it, creating a perfect space for the shaker bits. For the shaker bits, I used the Fruit Smoothie Clay Confetti , which features a delightful mix of colors.

Joyous Blessings - Spellbinders

Hello friends! Can you believe it's already the middle of the year? I used to think July was way too early for Christmas cards, but one time, whoosh! November came out of nowhere, and I was rushing to make those cards. Lesson learned – now I start early, right after my favorite companies release their holiday stuff. Lucky me, this year Spellbinders asked me to whip up some cards for their Holiday catalog. Today, I'm sharing this super cool square-shaped card I made with the new Christmas Bird Poinsettia Etched Dies . These dies are a blast and perfect for making Christmas cards. There are 13 thin metal cutting dies in the set, and they create this adorable bird sitting on top of a Poinsettia and candy cane bouquet. Use them together or separately to add some holiday charm! I'm totally hooked on using Spellbinders cardstock, and here's everything I used: Blues: Cosmic Sky , Glacier , Raindrop Gold: Brushed Gold Greens: Fern , Peridot , Rainforest Pink: Pink Sand Reds
