Star Shaker Kit 2 Ways!

Star Shaker Kit 2 Ways! 0

Hello there!  It's Laurie Willison here with a couple of cards using the Star Shaker Card Kit  from Queen and Company, to make 2 cards.
This first card uses the negatives from the foam front....

I did a navy wash on watercolor paper and added that to a kraft card base.  Next, I added the stars and removed the the top layer and then used the baby beads to cover each of the adhesive stars.  I added in a simple sentiment die cut to finish of the card.
Next, I used the shaker kit.  I kept them nice and simple by adding in the Tiny Bubbles to fill each star....

I popped a die cut sentiment up on fun foam to complete the card.  Easy peasy!
Thanks so much for coming by today!  Have a great day!

For the Love of White Space!

For the Love of White Space! 0

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....

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...

 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!

Simplicity at its Finest! - Pretty Presents Shaker Kit

Simplicity at its Finest! - Pretty Presents Shaker Kit 0

Hey there!  It's Laurie Willison here.  I have 2 cards here today, with one design....and of course, clean and simple!
Both cards use all the elements from the June Kit...Pretty Presents.  This first card, I created a shaker box, using a white gift on a white background, so those toppings inside the box would pop!  I layered them onto the card base with a piece of green pattered paper from the pack included in the kit.

This next card also uses the patterned paper from the kit with the white on white theme, but this time, I used the shaker box foam and dies, just to create a 3D gift.  I love how easy it is to create a shaker box with this kit, but it also works for different looks.  I added the black cut outs down inside the box for a fun little detail.

Hope you are enjoying your Pretty Presents kits.  If you don't have one, now is a great time to shop!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Quick Summer Cards - Pretty Presents Shaker Kit

Quick Summer Cards - Pretty Presents Shaker Kit 0

Hello!
It's Laurie Willison here with 2 new quick cards using the newest June card kit, Pretty Presents Shaker Kit. With the hustle and bustle of school ending, summer starting, vacation planning, things get a little busy.  Look how easy it is to create quick and pretty cards with our kits. 

For the first card, I used the dies in a different way. I took the diagonal gift box die and cut the bow off. I took four of them, along with the negative strips left inside, and glued them down in pattern. I added in some silver thread and places that under the hello sentiment. That die was from a previous kit.  I used my favorite pattern from the kit paper pack, the pink chevron, for the fun hello!

For the next card, I cut out 3 of the box dies and included negatives with different colors. I popped them up on a white card base, after adding in a little scoring, some twine and a simple sentiment. Easy peasy!



That's all I have for you today! Hope you are having a great day and thanks for stopping by!
