Simon Says Wednesday Challenge “Anything Goes” #2

I hadn’t planned to make a 4th of July card but I had an idea in my head that needed to get out!  I used the Tim Holtz stencils “Stars” and “Rays” along with his inks in Candied Apple and Chipped Sapphire.  I just masked off the areas and also embossed it with clear embossing powder.  The word “celebrate” is also a Tim Holtz dies.  Happy 4th!

My First Shaker Card

I have resisted making a shaker card for quite awhile, they have been one of the “in” things in the card world for awhile.  I have watched several videos (thanks to Jennifer McGuire & Kristina Werner) and I know they aren’t hard but they are time consuming.  I needed to make a birthday card for a certain 7 year old this week and decided it was time to finally make one because I know she will enjoy it.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Festive Berries for the background.  The heart embossing is by We R Memory Keepers.  I used a Sizzix circle die and the Happy Birthday and Cupcake dies are by Simon Says Stamp.  I used various sequins and hold punched hearts & stars out of glitter paper to fill the shaker.  I am happy with my first shaker 🙂
