Hello! Amy Sheffer here today with a pair of encouragement cards. 
 
You Shine Brighter
 
For my first card, I chose this uplifting sentiment stamp from Papertrey Ink. To go along with the sentiment, I watercolored an intense night sky made up of shades of blue, turquoise, and purple. I started out with Zig watercolor brush markers, then added intensity with ink refills.
 
 
You Shine Brighter
 
Next I added various embellishments as the stars in the sky: White Pinwheels, star sequins from the Sequin Topping Set, and Petite Posies.
 
 
You Shine Brighter
 
A touch of black and white striped twine helps bring out the darker ink colors and the black star sequins.
 
 
 My next card is just about the complete opposite in style. This time I focused on simplicity and lots of white space. I die-cut a gray cloud out of a pattern from the Flirty Florals Paper Pad and stamped it with an encouraging sentiment from Papertrey Ink.
 
I stitched lines from the cloud down to a rainbow of Twinkle Drops for rain. Everything is mounted with foam adhesive to a white scalloped card base. Super sweet and simple.
 
 
Supplies: Flirty Florals Paper Pad, Red Twinkle Drops, Orange Twinkle Drops, Yellow Twinkle Drops, Green Twinkle Drops, Blue Twinkle Drops, Purple Twinkle Drops, and Clear Twinkle Drops

Multiple Shakers - One Layout!

Multiple Shakers - One Layout! 0

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!
