This edge to edge shaker card was made using Sizzix die by Tim Holtz- Ghost Town 2. The background was alcohol inks in various colors. For the acetate shaker part I actually used a roll that is made for cake collars, found in the baking department and very inexpensive.

I don't usually do multiples of one card design but I really liked this design, it is cute and easy to do. One sheet of 12" x 12" designer paper will make dozens of cards if you cut the strips at 1". New Stamptember Gina K set for sentiments and Craft Consortium "Made By Elves" paper.

There is something fun and just a little bit special with a matching envelope and the inside of a card that is decorated as well. The kids all love getting Halloween cards (and candy) so I am starting a bit early this year. Background is Hero Arts Halloween Scene embossed in white with a haunted house (Not sure who made this one), and Boo! sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.

This is to honor the passing of Queen Elizabeth, may she rest in peace. I really admire how she performed her duty with elegance, dignity, kindness, and grace.
The stamp set is called "A Queen's Crown" which is so fitting for today, by Colorado Craft Company. Embossed in Princess Gold (Ranger), embellished with rhinestones on Concord card stock and Real Red by SU.

For the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge of die cuts. I used a Spellbinders die cut "Marvelous Frames", Van Gogh artworks washi tape, a sentiment by Stampin' Up!, and Joggles foam stamp "Twinkling Stars and Moon" embossed in Mandarin Gold on SSS card stock.

For Simon Says Stamp Monday's challenge to use Stamptember products. I have not received mine yet so will be going with their September card kit Let's Celebrate. Holographic paper with the 3D embossing folder, sequins, and stamped sentiment. I colored the image and then added Crackle Accents.

I'm finally getting a chance to play with the new monthly card kit from Simon Says Stamp "Let's Celebrate". It's always birthday time somewhere and this kit is perfect for just about everyone.
I used all patterned papers from the kit for this, fussy cutting the flowers and cutting the sentiment with the die that is included. Flat for mailing, which is a plus!

Of course I won't be taking the whole set with me, it's pretty heavy!

I was coloring Beach Huts today, lots of different colors coming up in my card making this week. Before you know it it will be too late to be making summer cards and we will be diving right into fall and Halloween. I for one am definitely ready for some cooler temperatures.
Supplies used were Simon Says Stamp for the beach hut scene, die by Elizabeth Craft for dunes and Alextamping skies stamp. Pictured below, these hard to find skies stamps are phenomenal. It is one of the stamp sets that I will never part with. Got these many moons ago on ebay.
Oh, how I miss the beach and Boardwalk! Didn't get a chance to get back home to the Jersey shore this year and am a bit homesick. We didn't really have beach huts there, mostly lifeguard stands but the feel is the same.
The cute Beach Huts stamp set and matching dies are by Simon Says Stamp.

I am a big fan of lemons, I love the smell, the taste, the color. Such a summery fruit for me, I add it to so many things, both sweet and savory. I fell in love with this pretty designer paper selection from the Simon Says Stamp July card kit and used the paper along with some lemon shaker pieces and a bottle cap that reflected the soda sentiment from the paper. Summer Starfruit card base (Stampin' Up!).
