HARD CANDY CHRISTMAS

Brandi’s Hard Candy Christmas set is so much fun for making shaker cards! •fist pump•

I stamped a ton of the candy in yellows, greens and pinks and then die cut them so I’d have lots at the ready to use as filler and embellishment both. They’re so cute mixed in with some sparkly sequins!

I used double layers of foam tape so things could shake around freely and was careful not to “over-stuff” the fillers. Gosh, I actually think this is one of the prettiest—and sweetest, LOL!—holiday cards I’ve ever made!

The candies adorning the front of the card were garnished with Diamond Stickles. HAH! Don’t let the culinary terms fool ya’, tho—this is strictly EYE candy. •wink•


GODZILLA STRIKES!

Welcome to the September EBE Release Hop!

So. I KNOW. I KNOW Dino-mite Christmas is, in fact, a holiday themed DINOSAUR set, but I just could not resist having “Godzilla” stomp into the city with birthday wishes. It just cracks me up!!! Did you ever watch Godzilla movies when you were a kid?

I had to incorporate Brandi’s Backyard Party set for the greetings and cake. Godzilla’s flaming breath is the latté steam from A Breve Note. When everything just falls into place like this, ya’ gotta run with it. Am I right?!

Inside, the card reads, “You party animal” (also from the Backyard Party set). I mean, seriously . . . •chinkle•

My granddaughter (almost 7 yrs. old) love dinosaurs and to my surprise, can identify/name a number of different types—she knows more than I do!

HOP ROSTER:


NEW EBE JULY 2019 RELEASE HOP

Ellen Hutson has a new release for the summer, with some super cute stamp sets by Brandi Kincaid and fun new dies! We’re hoppin’ to share it! My project features a fun window design with an aquatic theme, using Subbing In

Used one of the Waves Dies to create a mask and blend ink over to create my ocean on my base card—the sub was stamped and white embossed on sunny yellow card stock and then die cut out—windows were die cut separately from the sub and then I traced the windows from the sub onto the front of the card so I’d know where to put the dies to cut

After gluing the sub in place, I lightly traced the window openings again, so I’d know where to stamp Jelly inside the card—so cute to have her peeking through the window! Erased the pencil lines before I started coloring.

Sea critters get me every time . . .
