I made this shutter card today while my daughter is in her preschool class. The most difficult part of this for me was cutting the slits. I had a hard time with my hobby blade probably because I don't use it much. I used sanding blocks to fix my choppy cutting job :). This is a cool card and great for when you don't have much to say because there isn't much room to write in it ;)!
I wanted to show off this cute explosion box/scrapbook that I recently completed. Of course I haven't gotten around to putting photos in it or decorating the outside of the box but I still think it's cute enough to show off! I used the pop up cake die inside but instead of the three layers of the cake, I only used the top two to make it fit. This is going to be a great gift for whomever I decide gets it!
These photos are a little tricky because they are both mirrors but I wanted to show you SU's Decor Elements. These two mirrors are the first times that I used this product. I really enjoyed making these and plan to decorate a wall in our family room using some different ones that I ordered. If you like these and want to know more about them please contact me. I will be having a decorating party at my home soon!
I made this to try out the technique 'emerging color.' I stamped the butterfly dots image on white cardstock (in Melon Mambo ink) and then stamped over it with the solid butterfly image in Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. The last step is to brayer a color on for the background color (Soft Suede ink) and take a rag and wipe the excess ink off the embossed butterflies. The butterflies, ribbon, and the scallop around the salutation have dots on them and bring the whole card together.
