Welcome to Friday friends! It’s not common that I’ve posted 3 days in a row! Wow!
Speaking of rowing, I have a fun shaker card to share with you today:
I thought it would be fun to pull out my Lawn Fawn Float My Boat stamp set and create a “porthole” scene shaker style card. I cut circles with the LF Stitched rectangle dies and then used the LF Ocean Waves die to cut the circle in half which creates separation for the ocean scene. I took the top half of the panel to create the sky by blending in distress inks and then used other distress inks for the bottom portion. I stamped the birds from the stamp set over the sky and then I inserted the sailboat inside the wave. As you can see, the sailboat is paper pieced with the LF Beachside Paper pad. I’ve used this paper pad to also layer throughout my card design.
I found some cool looking shaker sequins with stars to put inside my shaker “porthole”. I also used the stitched circle die to cut out a piece of acetate for the window and then I used a stitched circle frame die to cut out a white frame around my acetate shaker window. I then stamped the banner from the LF Bannertastic stamp set and cut it out with the coordinating die. I then stamped the sentiment from the Float My Boat stamp set and then popped it up with foam tape over the “porthole” shaker window until it was high enough to lay over top of it.
I mounted these onto the starry navy paper from the paper pad as well as the same red that I used on the sailboat, which was then layered onto a white A2 sized top folding card base. I used heavy weight due to all of the layers and shaker details.
Wouldn’t it be nice to be sailing on the water about now? OK…sorry…went off on a short day dream there! LOL!
Can you believe that I’ve went through SIX WEEKS of this ICAD so far?! I have struggled at times going in to figure out what to do for the prompt on a tiny index card, but I have to say that I have built quite a collection and in a few more weeks I will have completed the entire challenge! Here is the link to the ICAD 2018 challenge if you are interested in what it’s all about: Daisy Yellow ICAD 2018
And here are the results from Week 6:
This week was slightly out of my comfort zone, but I went ahead and pushed through it and I’m glad I did…learned some pretty cool things! 🙂
Next week I’m going to a fun crafty event for 3 full days at a friend’s house that she puts on every year with several of her friends and family. I will be teaching a class with my mom and I look forward to lots of crafty fun with painting, food and friends! Maybe they will let me share some photos! If not, I will just try to remember to post on Instagram/FB what I am up to from time to time with my crafting if you follow me there!
Thanks for dropping in! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
