Circle Shaker

Have you played along with our Circle challenge yet? There's still time! For my card, I created a shaker card using a Shake-It pouch and stamps from Impression Obsession. I used Earth Ultrafine Flower Soft and some coffee grounds for my filler. I used a brown Blo-Pen for a quick spritz of speckles across the card.
LinkYou can click over to my blog to see how I created the word border around my circle opening! Remember, if you'd like to join in on the Sprinkle challenge, pull out the Flower Soft - you might even win a prize! Post your Circle project in the Splitcoast Gallery using the keywords flowersoft (one word) and FSC36. We'd love to have you join us!

Country Flower Shop

I made a yellow card to cheer myself up on a particularly gloomy day - this little flower shop from the Country Village Topper collection is so inviting. I used Meadow, Lemon, Citrus Crush, and Earth Flower Soft to add dimension to the scene, and a Sakura glaze pen on the window and door.

Thanks for looking! Be sure to check in tomorrow for a new Sprinkle Challenge!

Snow Globe toppers

Here's a fun little die-cut card featuring the Christmas Snow Globe toppers - these toppers are made to be used with the dimensional Display Globes, but they can be used alone or in a frame like I've created here with Spellbinders dies.A couple of angled shots to show the dimension you can create with these decoupage kits - I used glitter and Polar White Flower Soft to add snow to the scene.

Christmas Tree Pyramid tutorial

OK! Here's the tutorial I promised last week on assembling the Christmas Tree Pyramid cards. You'll need to start by cutting out the pyramid panel, and scoring from the point to the opposite angles, as shown:
Next, you'll cut out the decoupage pieces - each piece is numbered so you can keep them in order as you cut them out. I find it easiest to cut with a craft knife.

Here are all the cut out pieces, ready to shape and assemble on the card.
Take each piece, turn it over, and add some dimension by laying it on a foam pad and pressing into it - I used the wooden end of my embossing stylus, but you could use a rounded pen cap, or anything else with a similar shape.
Turn the pieces face up and press into the top of each piece - this will make the bottom rise a little, and also flatten out the top so it's easier to glue to the card.
The tree on the pyramid has some red lines across it - these are the guidelines for attaching the cut out pieces. Beginning at the bottom, line up the pieces one at a time to create the tree.
Here's the card with all the pieces attached.
Working one section at a time, add Polar White Flower Soft to the tree... I used a little glitter as well. Here's my snowy tree....
...and my completed card!Thanks for stopping by!
