This month I am sharing a shaker tag made with the  Cherry Blossom Retreat collection. The image has been colored with Prismacolor pencils and then I used the smaller tag shape to cut it out. The bridge was stamped with embossing ink and embossed with Copper embossing powder.


I used the Eyelet Circle & Basics Small die to cut the opening for the shaker, added the acetate in the window, and then cut a second tag and stamped the sentiment in the circle. I added the sequins and then adhered the two tags together with pop dots. The larger tag shape was cut from white card stock.  I added the dog and kitten from the Happy Camper collection.

Are you finished with your Christmas cards? I have one more card for some inspiration.
It's a very simple gate fold card using the O Holy Night collection.
For the inside I used the Noel Sentiments stamp. I used a craft knife to cut around the bow design on the card panel and then slipped the sentiment panel under the bow.

Heartfelt Creations August Alumni Blog Hop

Hello friends!  It's time once again for the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop. The hop starts at 8AM EST on Friday, August 30th, 2019 EDT and closes Monday, September 2nd at 11:55 PM EDT . Winner will be announced on the HC Facebook page on Wednesday September 4th, 2019. 





Every year we have a Blues and Barbecue event for our Habitat for Humanity program. I like to support them by donating something for their sale. This year they had these bird houses and asked several of us to decorate them. I started by painting them with craft paint.

This one reminded me of a gingerbread house and so I used the Sugarspun collection to decorate it. 

I loved how the corner piece from the Ornate Pocket Accents Die fit perfectly under the roof. The birdhouse was finished with a coat of water based varnish.

I also created a card to correspond with the birdhouse. I like to use mesh instead of acetate for the shaker window. 

edit: I should have called it tulle instead of mesh.  Sorry!
