Beautiful Bouquet Shaker Shadow Box Card

Hi everyone!

April has been SUPER busy, so you may have noticed I took a bit of a break from blogging!

We had Easter, school holidays, a daughter who was in the Grease Arena Spectacular with rehearsals every day, not to mention trying to organise a house to get ready to sell and work!  Ughhhhh …..

So I am slowly working my way back into routine …slowly! Lol.

Today I wanted to share with you another one of my creations using Bronwyn Eastley’s fabulous Mermaid Shaker Shadow Box Card Tutorials.  I think its fair to say that I really enjoy creating with this design.  It makes a great card, with that extra wow, and surprisingly simple to make.

This time I used a simple Whisper White Base, and even though you can’t see it in the picture, the front is embossed with our Shimmery White Embossing Paste.  The background for this card is from the Painted with Love Designer Series Paper (DSP), which is thicker than our regular DSP making it perfect for a box style project.

Fill your centre with some Gold Glitter Flakes for some extra pizazz, but just a warning – the static with these things is amazing – so you need to position your acetate quickly! Lol.

Beautiful Bouquet was used to create the pretty bunch of flowers for this card.

You may be wondering where you write your message on this kind of card – simply cut a piece to size for the back panel and write away!

If you would like to create your very own Shadow Shaker Box, pop on over to the Addinktive Designs Tutorial Shop HERE.  Below are a couple of other creations using the same tutorial, so you can see just how versatile they are!  You can swap almost all of the elements for what you have in your own collection.

If you would like to recreate this card, simply click on the items below to go directly to my online store (for residents of Australia only). You had better be quick, as quite a few of the items used are retiring, including our Large Number Framelits – and once they have gone, they are gone for good 🙁

Happy Crafting everyone!

CTC 140 – Babies, Kids and Pocketful of Sunshine

Welcome to CTC 140, where this week the crew are taking inspiration from cards in the Babies and Kids section of the Annual catalogue, on pages 102 – 111.

Such a fun section of the catalogue to CASE!

This week I really wanted to show you that even though we are using the Babies and Kids section – you don’t necessarily have to make a babies and kids project.  You can take inspiration from any designs in the catalogue and create them to suit your need.

So here is the image I used this week –

You may remember last time I played along with this category, I CASEd the card on the right!  This week, I am CASEing the card on the left.

I hadn’t inked up my Pocketful of Sunshine yet and was dying to get it out for a play!  For this challenge I teamed it with Beautiful Bouquet Bundle and created this card –

Instead of stamping onto the background, I pulled out our gorgeous Embossing Paste for a bit of extra fun and texture to the card.

White craft ink gave me the stitching on the pocket and as much as I love the sentiments in the Beautiful Bouquet set, I decided to leave this one blank for now, so I can pop on a sentiment when I decide the destination of the card 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this weeks creation.  Don’t forget to hop all the way around and come back and upload your design to our Facebook Page HERE.

Now its time to pop over to the lovely Simone Bartrum and see what she has created for you all!

Happy Creating!
