How To Use Foam and Acetate Sheets to Make Shakers

How To Use Foam and Acetate Sheets to Make Shakers 0

Hi Queen and Co fans! 
Rebecca here with a couple of new shaker cards made with the Foam and Acetate refill sheets. There are a couple of extra steps that you need to take if you are making a shaker from the sheets versus from a Queen and Co Shaker Card Kit.
For example, you have to die cut the foam yourself. Any of the Queen and Co Foam Front Dies perfectly create card sized shakers.
You will also need to cut your own card base and provide your own envelope.
But these extra steps only take a few minutes and, with the refill sheets, you are able to create any shaker that you have the die to create.
Check out this quick video where I show all the steps to create a shaker card using a Foam Front Die and the refill sheets.

Heart Throb Shaker Cards!

Heart Throb Shaker Cards! 0

Hello, everyone!
Michele Boyer here today sharing two cards using one of my favorite paper pads EVER, Heart Throb.  The colors are so soft, so pretty!

First I used one of the Heart Throb patterns beneath a Waves Foam Front. I simply cut the patterned paper to just slightly smaller than my card front (which is included with the Foam Front Shaker kit). I filled the openings with Heart Throb toppings then adhered the acetate and die-cut cardstock cover.

I tied a bit of gold cord then stamped a die-cut tag and adhered it beneath the bow. I find it’s much easier to simply slip tags beneath bows, rather than tie them within. In doing so, the tag is secured in place without moving around or loosening the cord. (Stamps and tag die by Paper Smooches.)

Supplies: Waves Foam Front, Heart Throb Kit, Scrap Happy Sheer Glue

My second card uses more pretty Heart Throb paper as well as the heart, hello and love dies, all included within the Heart Throb kit.

Before adhering the hello and love words, I die-cut three of each and layered together to create thicker elements. I adhered a thin scrap of gray floral paper along the left side (much too pretty to toss), and left a bit of the white card base to show. Once everything was assembled, I adhered a few tiny floral Heart Throb toppings.

For the Love of White Space!

Hi crafty friends! 
It's Laurie Willison here.  I recently pulled out the Heart Throb kit from Queen and Co. and was inspired to make a couple cards.  I do love white space so this is how the first one came out....

July 2017 Queen and Co

I added some black striped washi along the bottom of the card base.  Next, I added the heart shaker foam and added some hearts from the kit.  I layered that with the heart shaped piece of acetate....already cut and so EASY to put together....and the topped it off with the stitched heart die.  I love how all the pieces work together so well!  Next, I added in the love die cut in some glitter paper and then heat embossed the "you" on black card stock.  So simple and so fun!

I wanted to go with the same sentiment but change up the look and color combo for the next card...

July 2017 Queen and Co

 I added in a heart die and then around the die cut, I glued several heart toppings, also from the Heart Throb kit.  I finished it off with the same glittery love and heat embossed sentiment as the first card.  2 matching elements with 2 totally different cards!

Hope you have enjoyed all the love here today!  So glad you stopped by.  Hope you have a great day!

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.

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.
