Hi Peeps! It’s time for a new challenge over on our Unity Show and Tell page on Facebook!
This is my 3rd and final month to host and I have to say I am a little bit sad about it! This has been so much fun! I have really loved chatting with all of you and I have especially loved all of your creativity and inspiration! Thank you so much for joining me!
So let’s talk about the September challenge!
This month is all about TECHNIQUES!!! Pick any one you love! Pick one you have never tried! We aren’t picky over here LOL You don’t have to stick with the same technique either! Show us all your favorite techniques!
I did a shaker card from Momenta. I tried something new to me. I have never used these dome things before. [I won’t be mailing this large and in charge card LOL] It came with the die set. My favorite part about shaker cards is die cutting all of the shaker bits! I usually use sequins and beads or those tiny clay pieces, this time I decided on just paper! I cut and cut and cut! As I cranked my bugs handle all my issues just drifted away! I could have used my big Spellbinders machine and cut lots more at a time, but I truly love die cutting so I always grab my Cuttlebug and get busy!
I am a junk journaler, so trash often becomes treasure over here LOL My sweet daughter Carlee bought new makeup brushes. This GORGEOUS glitter paper was behind them and she said Hey Mom! I think you will want this gorgeous paper! You bet I do Doll! But we can’t let trash pile up or then that Hoarders TV show will roll in! LOL Plus this is definitely not very grungy like my journals usually are so it was perfect card material! These background dies are a MUST! If you don’t have them I would pick them up as soon as you can! They are perfect for shaker cards! They are Falling Stars and Fall Out Hearts. You can see them both HERE.
They are so PERFECT for filler and now I can get started on 2 more cards! Backgrounds are done!
These came with the shaker card set.
I grabbed Up, Up & Away and embossed it. Then threw on some Yasutomo watercolors, More bliss! I love the shimmer they provide and they do not photograph for me well! But I LOVE them, I can’t stop using them!
Up next I grabbed Chic Script Salutations, this die set is another must have! I LOVE the shadows! They are really a must have and my favorite for the thinner fonts!
I think we need a Shake, Shake, Shake! Shake your booty! stamp don’t you? LOL
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you will come on over to our Unity Show & Tell Facebook page and join the challenge! I can’t wait to see what you make!
Have fantastic day and I’ll see you Thursday!
