Another Shaker Card

While I'm sharing Father's Day cards (belatedly), this was the one I had made for my hubby (sorry for the light reflection in the window really seemed to jump off the gold foil heart near the bottom of the greeting).  This card was made with the b&w striped paper in the Pop of Pink pack and the Jars of Love stamp set and coordinating framelits.  The greeting I chose was 'You fill me with happiness' as it went with what I wanted to share to him on this inside:)

Bear Hug Card for Papa

I'm a bit behind on posting, but this was the Father's Day card I made for my Papa this year, but I thought I could post it anyway as it could easily work for other occasions and many of you might have men in your life who love the lake and fishing.

I used the Bear Hugs stampset and coordinating framelits for this card.  The background on the distressed whisper white piece was stamped in pool party with an image from the Work of Art stamp set.  The fish from the Bear Hugs stampset were coloured with an aqua painter dipped in 3 colours of SU ink.

Make & Take #3 - Shaker Card - Jars of Love with Pop of Pink

This was the third make & take at my new catty workshops.  This one, a shaker card.  The New Catty has some wonderful new strips of dimensionals that are great for making shaker cards!  All you need is a piece of SU window sheet and something to fill your card with (here I used hearts from the treat bag thinlets/framelits set, but the new confetti punches would work great too!).

I used the new Jars of Love stampset and coordinating framelits for all images, and that wonderful patterned paper comes from my new favourite pack, Pop of Pink:)

This card was made using the following products:

Make & Take #1 from My New Catty Workshops (June & July) - Treatholder

When you're counting your points, you look for things other than candy to put in treatholders...  When I found these adorable purse sized tissues recently, I designed this treatholder around them as a result:)  It's made using the envelope punchboard and a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock together with a piece of Emerald Envy dsp from the in colour stack.  I also used the Thioughful Banners new stampset and coordinating punch on this project.
