If you came here looking for the Bee Happy Blog Hop, please go HERE!
It's month four of our year long adventure into different card-making techniques,
folds and paper crafting products. We hope you got the chance to hop with us in January for the emboss resist technique and in February for ink layering, and March for the inlaid technique. It's not too late to hop and comment.
If you missed January's hop, you can still hop and comment by starting HERE.
February's hop, you can still hop and comment by starting HERE.
March's hop, you can still hop and comment by starting HERE.
This month we will be creating shaker cards and you won't want to miss the amazing and fun cards we've got for you today. We really love feedback, so please leave a comment on each of the blogs in today's hop. Each comment on the 12 hops throughout the year will be entered into a drawing for a $25 Blitsy.com gift certificate. Now on with the projects.
For my first card, I decided to make use of some new Color Splash Resist Paper and Watercolor Crayons that I added to my stash this month. I still have a lot of work to do figuring out how to use these items but I think it turned out fairly well. I cut the mason jar shape with my Cricut Explore and added some dripping honey and a lid (both also cut with the Explore). Added the cute little bee and sentiment and this card was finished.
Next, I made this triple circle shaker card. I added sequins to each of the circles and a few on the face of the card for decoration.
My last card was kind of a challenge. I took a digital stamp of a mouse with an umbrella and cut out the top piece of the umbrella where I added the sequins to symbolize some rain. I used some Tim Holtz distress ink to sponge on the sky, some clouds, and the grass. I colored the mouse with some copics. I added the bow and a sentiment to complete the card.
I hope you enjoyed my cards today. Up next is the wonderful and talented Lisa.
