Capturing Smiles!

Capturing Smiles! 0

Hi Everyone --

Susan Weinroth here with you today to share a couple of cards that I whipped up with favorite Queen & Co. product.



"You Captured My Heart" is the first card that I created -- I love the ease of the foam front circle card and coordinating die.

)

I used lots of pink to create a monotone card and shakerbox with a simple multi-heart punch background.



For my second card -- "You Make Me Smile" -- I was able to use my very favorite camera die (fron the Picture Perfect Kit).



The camera die cut shape coordinates well with the "smile" sentiment!



Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at what I've been up to!

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

 

Thanks so much for joining me here today!

Mixing Paper Pads!

Hi everyone,
Nicole here today to share a project with you. I picked up the Around the Park 12x12 Mat Stack to document some vacation photos to the mouse's house... but when I opened it up, I found some pretty b-side papers that are perfect for girly page!
It is almost hard to believe that these papers came from a Disney themed paper pad right! The pretty floral paper in the Around the Park mat stack has lots of colors in it, so I was able to mix in some papers from the Heart Throb paper pad as well as the Picture Perfect paper pads too. 
I added in lots of fun  Queen and Co. embellishment to the floral elements on my page too - some Sparklers, Sunflowers and even some Petite Posies, along with some dots from the Heart Throb kit.
Supplies:
Heart Throb paper pad
Multiple Shakers - One Layout!

Good morning!

Mary-Ann Maldonado here with a fun summery layout using two foam front shaker sets.  I also used almost every color bling I had for this layout too!  You are supposed to when you have a rainbow, right? 

I started by choosing four photos of a pool day and printed them to size.  Then I created the sunburst shaker and applied them both to the center of the layout.    

I collected all the color bling I had to apply at the bottom and top of the page.

It seemed a little empty, so clouds above the sun was the perfect choice!  I used varying colors to help them pop as well.  I couple white Pom added just a little fluffiness. 

So, I actually used three die cuts and two foam shakers.  I think it is fun to mix and match.  You should try it!

Cloud Pop Up Die, Sunburst Shaker Set, Windows Foam Front Shaker Kit, Picture Perfect 6x6 pad, Simple Stripes 6x6 pad, Flirty Florals 6x6 pad, Delightful Dots 6x6 pad, orange Iridescent Pearls, Green, orange and red Sparklers, blue, purple, yellow, pink, red, green Rivets, blue Pinwheels, turquoise Twinkle Drops, yellow Lollies, white Pom Flowers, Toppings: Tiny Bubbles, Diamonds, Pops, and Bright Pearlies

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!
