Stampin’ Up! announced it’s retired list yesterday – while we are sad to see some of our favorite products leave the catalog, we are certain that some amazing new products are on their way. As we introduce the 2016-2018 In Colors to you, we know we have to say goodbye to the 2014-2016 In Colors. Today’s Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that share some great ideas – featuring Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Tangelo Twist, Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I have so enjoyed the Retiring “In Colors” and it is bitter sweet to say goodbye to such great colors.  If you are in love with these colors it is time to purchase them if you have not!  Stampin’ Up! will be soon introducing new In Colors witch will I’m sure be fabulous also!  I decided to make a shaker card for you today using the stamp set Honeycomb Hello  and the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Dies (both on the retiring list)!!!!

Honeycomb Hello

Honeycomb Hello





A few details:

  • Using the Hexagon Hives Thinlits Dies cut out the shapes using Blackberry Bliss Card Stock and Whisper White Card Stock.
  • On the Hexagon pieces stamp the different images from Honeycomb Hello using Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, and Tangelo Twist inks.
  • Make frame using Hello Honey card stock and the Stampin’ Trimmer (You can also do this with rectangle framelits if you have them) but, it is real easy to make a frame with the Trimmer.  Also, make a frame using Mossy Meadow card stock.  After making the frames add them to your Blackberry Bliss Hexagon Hives Thinlits.  Finally add a window sheet to this layer.
  • Add desired sequins and glitter!!!   Remember, to be creative!!
  • Add a back layer to the shaker.  Then glue this to the card base.

Global Design Project…#GOP012

This weeks challenge over at Global Design Project is CASE the Designer.  This week we are challenged to CASE the very talented Mr. Brian King.  He is amazing and full of ideas to make stamping so fun!  GDP012 Case the Designer

The idea of the challenge is to take any elements of this card to make your own card.  I decided to use the colors the soft blue and white with the bold red.   Then I wanted to use the square shape… I also used the basic layout for the card.  I did not have any cute little penguins or other winter animals.  So, I replaced the penguins with the trees from Festival of Trees.  festival of trees bundle

This is a great stamp set in the Annual Catalog.


The card base is Mint Macaron card stock cut at 10 inches and scored at 5 inches.  The frame is made from Cherry Cobbler card stock and the Squares Collection Framelits.  Inside the frame the background is Soft Sky that was stamped with the little snow flakes from Holly Jolly Greetings.  Stamp the flakes with versa mark ink then add White embossing powder.  Heat emboss the snow.  IMAG2526

One tree is inside the shaker and the other is predominantly on the outer layer.  It is hard to tell but, there is a layer of snow on the inside of the shaker as well as the two layers on the outer layer.  The shaker consist of sequins and glitter (white and silver)  The trees are stamped with Mint Macaron ink on shimmery white paper.  The sentiment is stamped with Smoky Slate ink.  IMAG2518

Posted by on Nov 15, 2015 in Shaker Card, Wonderland | 0 comments


This last week was very busy with work (my real job). It just seemed to fly  by.  I did not get the chance to share with you guys. I truly missed sharing and creating.  I normally try to make something everyday.  This helps keep my creativity flowing.  I am hoping that I will be back to this practice this week.  I miss you guys when I am not sharing with y’all.  Today’s card has been setting around on my desk all week waiting for me to put it together.  The majority of the design was developed over the weekend.  Then it sat waiting for me…Finally, Saturday morning it got assembled.

I love looking at all the different creations on the internet by very talented card makers.  One of the obvious trends I have seen this year is Shaker Cards!  I love all the different ways artiest have come up with new shakers.  And what’s more fun than a card with sequins and glitter!!!!

I am part of a very talented group of stampers called InKing Royalty.  The leader of the group Brian King sent me some fabulous sequins by Stampin’ Up!  When I received the little gift. I decided that I had no excuse now.  I have to try and make a shaker card….

Now, what to make…. The colors of the sequins were black, clear, white, gold, and silver.  This led me to a winger card.  Something snowy.   I landed on the stamp set Wonderland. I had been working with this set and decided the trees would look nice and snowy. This would be perfect for the winter card I wanted.


This stamp set is so very pretty.  The trees are perfect pines.  The antlers are going to come in use very soon.   The two sentiments remind me of Christmas Eve and the peace and quite that can be found in the chaos of the season.


This was so much fun to create.  First, I stamped the pines in versa mark ink.  Using white embossing powder and my heat gun I embossed the stamped pines.  Then fussy cut the image out.  (DO WHAT,  yes…fussy cut the pines!!! Actually, they were quite easy)

The card base is Basic Black card stock cut at 5 1/2 inches and scored at 4 1/4 inches.  The layers are Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (5 3/8 by 4 1/8) and Basic Black (5 1/4 by 4) There is also a Window Sheet layer that is 5 1/4 by 4.   The Basic Black layer middle was cut with the rectangle from Seasonal Frame Thinlits.  This made a perfect frame for the shaker card.  The frame was then embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder and Big Shot.

The word snow was cut out twice. Once with glimmer paper and once in Basic Black.  The two were layered so that the black would shadow the glimmer paper.

The assembly of the card was quite interesting.   I wanted the sequins to stay towards the top of the card.  So my “house for the shakers had work around the tops of the tree.  The first thing I did was glue the tress to the frame.  Then I added the Window Sheet layer to the frame and trees.  Then I used microfiber cloth to clean the window sheet.  I added the “house” for the shakers using foam tape.  (next time I will build up a larger “house” by layering two foam tape strips on top of each other.  This will give the sequins more room to shake)  On the Glimmer paper is a very small pile I added Sequins, Gold Glitter, and Silver Glitter.  Making sure that the pile was small enough that they would fit into the “house” . Then add the frame to the glimmer paper and wa-la you have a shaker card.

This card was so much fun to make.  I am looking forward to making many more in the future.  I hope each and everyone of you have had a great Sunday!
