Watercolor Window Shaker Card!!!

Hello everyone! I am here today to share a card I made! This one is super exciting for me because not only did I get to play with watercolors for the background but I did something NEW! I created a window shaker card! I think that is what it is called lol??? I used Craftin Desert Diva's "Fancy Frame Dies" to create a shaker on the front card panel. In this shaker I used some CDD "Fairy Dust" sequins along with some purple glitter I had in my stash. I then used my Tim Holtz "Salty Ocean" distress ink to blend on the frame. As well as some "Mowed Lawn" distress ink on the grass I cut using CDD "Outdoor Landscape Dies". This beautiful Digi is from Craftin Desert Diva's as well and it is called "Blooming Cricket" ! The sentiment comes from CDD stamp set "Be Inspired" and I embossed that with some gold embossing powder. I also used my embossing pen to cover the hearts on this image as well and heat embossed it with some gold! This is not my original idea by any means I got this from an old video from K Werner Designs on YouTube! Here is the link to the video that inspired me "Friday Focus-Birthday Card"! If you don't already know who she is please head over now and check her out! Now on to my version of the shaker window!

Craftin Desert Diva Sushi Card!!!

Hello everyone here today to share this card I made. I had a freakin blast with this one! I know I say that a lot but seriously come on!!! How cute are these little Sushi Digi's! Colored these up using my spectrum noir markers and fussy cut them all out with my Tim Holtz "Tonic Scissors". This card base is from my stash that I ran through my die cutting machine with a chevron embossing folder. Of course CDD "Fancy Frame Dies" were a must as well on this card! To create the watercolor background I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink "Mowed Lawn" by smushing it down my acrylic stamping block and spraying it with my water bottle and then taking a clear acetate sheet (this can even be what your stamps come on) and then rubbing it down on the block to pick up then ink and smushing it down on your watercolor die cut. I also used some Tim Holtz Distress Ink "Spiced Marmalade" distress ink for the splatters and then on the chevron card base I splattered on some of my black dye ink I use for all my sentiment stamping. Last but not least the sentiment comes from CDD "Kitchen Cuties" stamp set! 

Here is a close up of the Sushi Digi's and the dimension I added to this card!

Here is what I made..

I had a blast layering all these Digi's together on my computer to create a scene on my card! I used School Bus Digi and Flower Power Digi! I colored these digital stamps in with my spectrum noir and copics. I used my Fancy Frame dies for the layers. And I actually created the yellow and polka dot layer with my distress ink pads and then put a stencil over top and sponged in the green ink for the polka dots. I then traced all the dots with one of my black doodle pens. Then I used that pen to help draw my flower stems and the road. last but not least I added some stickles and Sunny Day Sequins to the middle of the flowers. I am so excited for back to school! Can't wait to be able to give this to one of my girls new teachers. Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card today, I really appreciate each and everyone of you!
