Unity Stamps Shaker Game Card

It’s been a while since I made one of these… and I have a few new variations in mind, I just haven’t had time to do them yet. This is one I made for the Unity Stamps Facebook Group challenge which is currently ‘watercolors’. Unity (Show and Tell) using Warm inside

The circular frame is  made using a Gina Marie Designs Die “Mini Heart Lace die set”
These are the 3 inch circular windows, 1/4 inch deep  and the balls are approx 5 mm.  No foam padding needed as they are already deep enough, just fill and glue.. or glue and fill.. depending on what kind of shaker you are making.

Watercoloring was done on  Canson Mix Media 9×12  with Gansai Tambi watercolors & a BrushH2o

Humorous Christmas Card ..getting ready for 2017

This is a Bugaboo Stamps Friday Freebie, if you didn’t grab it..you still have a few days left to get it before the new Freebie comes out.  It’s called “Winter Penguin Trio”  I am still playing with Christmas images… nothing like getting a head start on next 2017 cards lol.

I knocked up a super quick and simple card. It’s just a single fold on an 8.5×11 sheet of Black card, the image was printed on Canson mixed Media and colored with Chameleon pens. I added the inside sentiment to the bottom of the photo, just so you get the intended humor.  The image is foam popped on a sheet of Darice foam and the sentiment is a die cut from a Momenta die I picked up on clearance at Hobby Lobby last week.  I cut it on black card then rewrote the sentiment with a Zig Chalk Pen.  Tore up the edges and sponged on a blue ink edging.bug_penguin_trio

Supplies:

Recollections 65lb card -Black
Canson Mixed Media Paper 7×10
Chameleon Pens
Zig Chalk Marker Dual tip – white
Momenta “Believe” die – Hobby Lobby clearance
Craftsmart Dye Ink Pad  –  Light Blue
Darice Adhesive foam sheet
Zig Photo Tape

Anyone for Crochet?… crafter humor framed artwork

Once again my  project was directed by the image and sense of humor…  I love it when an image speaks to my inner clown and they get along perfectly  LOL.  Sometimes an image just clicks in your brain and other times you have to sit and stare at it and wait for the ideas to come… This will be a fun one to add to my abandoned Art bucket … maybe.

This is one of the new Releases from Cute As A Button .. this is “Harley”
She is colored with Zig Kurecolor, Chameleon  Pens and a touch of Marvy Detailer, Ranger Distress Pens  and Zig Memory System writer pens.

The edges were inked up using crafts smart ink pads and then she was mounted on  some striped paper “Recollections – Red Denim” from Michaels using Zig Photo Tape.  I just mounted her in an old frame I had laying around.

For anyone struggling to read..it says

“They said I was Anti-Social”

“So I answered an ad on Craigslist, It said ‘WANTED, ladies with killer crochet skills”

It’s a crafters joke and a play on words…  croquet/crochet  for those that ‘don’t get it’caab_nr_halequin_wmd
You can find her in the Cute As A Button store, along with the other New Releases for September.

If Star Wars was written by a woman…..

Not everyone is a big fan of circus’s and clowns.. or bad humor.  BUT you had to have one or the other… and this is me and my blog so if you are a regular visitor you will know I  like to put a different twist on images sometimes.  I don’t always use things in the way they were intended… and that’s ok.  The great thing about art and crafting is  we all have our own spin on things, our own sense of humor and our own set of friends..crazy or otherwise.

The original is colored with a mix of Chameleon, Zig Kurecolor and Ranger distress pens then imported and reprinted with the sentiment.  She will be “abandoned” with a forever stamp for someone to find and mail on, or keep.

If you want to make postcards, be sure to check your Post Office website to make sure you are within the guidelines they issue.  Here they have very specific min and max sized and weight of cards for postcard mailings. I shall pop a quick spray of clear coat over the top to protect the card face and  then she is good to go on her merry way, wherever she may roam.

This is a card I have had on my todo list for a good 4 months or more.. and I finally got to do it in the wee hours of this am.

I love these kind of fill in the blank cards, so much fun to personalize them to the recipient.

Mother’s Day Shaker Game Card

The Blog Challenge  at Cute As A Button CAAB this month is “Mother’s Day”  and I chose to  make a fun Shaker Game Card which is suitable for any occasion when you need to let your mom know how much you love her and wanted to say “Thank You”.

I kept it super simple  to maintain the focal point and message conveyed.  I love the Black, white and red combo… it’s very clean and classic and suitable for both sexes and all ages. The ornate scroll backing to the shaker is very  gender neutral too so you could use this idea with a  variety of image themes, for any occasion. I had a bunch of precuts for the shaker card windows, so that made this a very quick and simple card to  make.
