All roads lead home.....

Hello lovelies, I hope you are all well ? 

Well first of all sorry for my lack of being around, Blogger has not been letting me comment or post since last week! But hopefully it is all sorted out now. 

I wanted to share my latest card with you that I created for Crafter's Companion International Inspiration Team. 

I haven't created a shaker card and forgot how much i love these. It has been YEARS...and I do mean years since I made a shaker so there was a couple of hiccups but I got there in the end. 

I have used a stamp & embossing folder from the Nordic Range which i totally love. I have coloured the image using my Spectrum Noir Markers and my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. 
What do you think.....

Excuse the glitter I forgot to use my powder tool so ended up with static. 
The sequins are a total mix of some that I have had for years and Taylored Expressions, I also added some Microfine Glitter & Microbeads. 
The sentiment is from the same stamp set as the image (linked below) and I stamped it using Versafine and then used some WOW Embossing Powder. I cut the edges using the wave blade on my Crafter's Companion Clevercut. I was going to go for a different coloured card for the sentiment but the red just worked best and gave it a little pop of colour. 
I have lost my white gel pen so for the "snow" I used a fine paintbrush and some white acrylic paint. 

I hope you like the card, it really was fun and i will be making more. 
I hope you are all having a nice week and to my UK friends I hope you are all staying dry and warm. 

Thank you for stopping by. 

Happy Crafting 

The Microbeads I have I couldn't find, but I have found some pretty much the same in stock here.

  5. Such a cutie Tracy. Love this sweet shaker card.

  6. Another gorgeous card huni, love that stamp so that will be going into the basket once I have some pennies lol! The embossing folder is so very cute too. Your colouring is wonderful, as always. Thank you for the lovely comments on my blog hun, am rather rough right now so not crafting like I would like and struggling a bit more everyday. The depression that started to become a problem after I hurt my back is way worse too - sadly that's always what happens this time of year. Keep well and safe huni and if I don't make it back before I hope you and your OH have an awesome Xmas Karen xx
