For the love of COLOR!

Hi there!  Laurie Schmidlin here with a couple of fun and bright cards to share with you!

I absolutely love color!  That is one of my favorite things about Queen & Co...all the beautiful colors!

I created a shaker card using the Balloons Shaker Kit and Balloons Card Front Die.  My favorite part about creating shaker cards is adding the toppings!  I added three different kinds to the balloons:  Pops, Fimo Fun, & Tiny Bubbles.

Supplies:  Balloons Shaker Kit, Balloons Card Front Die, Pops Topping Set, Tiny Bubbles Topping Set, Fimo Fun Topping Set

 



My next card is a clean and simple card with pops of bright, cheerful colors.  I started by die cutting the film strip (from the Say Cheese Shaped Shaker set).  I then added some Red and Yellow Wallflowers and a couple of Yellow Sparklers.  I grounded the die cut sentiment by adding a strip of striped patterned paper (from the Stripes Paper Pad).

Supplies: Stripes Paper Pad, Say Cheese Shaped Shaker Set, Red Wallflowers, Yellow Wallflowers, Yellow Sparklers

Different Ways to Use Toppings!

Different Ways to Use Toppings! 0

Hi there! 
Laurie Schmidlin here and I've got a couple of cards featuring different ways to use Queen & Co's Toppings!

One of my favorite things when creating, is to add special little details.  They just seem to give cards that little something extra!  Queen & Co's Toppings and smaller flowers are the perfect embellishments for this!

For my first card, I created a heart shaker using items from the Heart Throb Kit.  I filled the heart with blue and green Tiny Bubbles (from the Tiny Bubbles Toppings Set).  The patterned paper on the heart shaker is from the Simple Stripes 6 x 6 Paper Pad.  For embellishment, I adhered little blue stars from the Fimo Fun Toppings Set.

 

Supplies
Heart Throb Kit
Simple Stripes 6 x 6 Paper Pad

For my next card, I used some Sunflowers and Posies to add color embellishments to my jungle themed card.  I started by die cutting the Foam Front Die - Window (one of my favorite card front dies) and added it to a piece of patterned paper from the Pretty Presents 6 x 6 Paper Pad.  I tucked in stamped and die cut images and then added a few yellow posies (from the Baby Bling Book -Posies) and Orange Sunflowers.

How to Create Ombre Shaker Cards

How to Create Ombre Shaker Cards 0

Hey Queen and Co fans! 
Rebecca here with two new cards featuring Queen and Co. fabulous shaker products. 
Once you realize how easy it is to create shaker cards with Queen and Co Foam Front Card Kits, dies and Toppings, you can start getting fancy! I wanted my shaker cards to have an ombre look, so I created a front panel with a blended Distress Ink background and filled my shakers with a variety of Toppings in different hues.



Start with a smooth piece of white cardstock slightly larger than 4.25 x 5x5 inches. Ink the cardstock with inks creating an ombre effect. I used Tim Holtz Distress inks because they are easy to blend, but any inks you have will work.
Cut the card panel with a Shaker Die that has a repetitive pattern like the Chevron or Dots.
Put your shaker card together using a variety of Toppings. The great thing about owning several sets of Toppings is that each color in the sets has a slightly different hue. Cover the completed shaker with your inked card panel and add a few coordinating embellishments and you’re done! Ombre shakers can be bright and summery and are perfect for a variety of occasions!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
