Today I’m making a Quick and easy vellum shaker card using Paper Temptess Card stock/Vellum and Gerda Steiner Designs Rubber stamp called Monster Kid. I’ll be using several different products today, and I’ll explain a little about these products as I go. First off, I’m using Gerda’s Rubber stamp today, and she has Digital stamps, Clear stamps and Rubber stamps available in her store. I use her Digital and Clear stamps all the time, but I think this is the first time I’m sharing her Rubber stamps. Just to explain a little about her rubber stamps, her rubber stamps come in Rubber only form. Which means, it doesn’t have the cling cushion that you normally use to stick the stamp on to your acrylic block. You have the option to mount them onto a cling foam mount if you choose to do so. I like to use my bare rubber stamps with the Aileen’s tack it over and over glue, which I explain in the video. Her rubber stamps are excellent quality and it’s very thick and deeply etched, which will give you a really great impression. I decide to use watercolor pencils to color in this image and I’m using the Faber Castell’s Art grip watercolor pencils. These watercolor pencils are highly pigmented, great quality pencils which blend really easily, as you can see in the video. They’re available in color family sets as well as different quantity sets. I have a few of the color family sets, and I didn’t have all the color pallet available to me, so I implemented the Peerless watercolor as well. These are fantastic pencils, and I love them dearly.
I also made a simple shaker portion, using some of Paper Temptress’s yummy colored vellum. I love making this simple shaker, which is simple to make yet very fun. Her vellum is perfect for things like this, because they are very thick and high quality. I love these purple and orange card stocks, which also has some texture to them, which will add some more interest to this card. Her card stocks are very thick and sturdy, making them very easy to work with. I hope you like this card and please check out the video for the step by step tutorial.

Today I’m making a card using the Brand New Release of Gerda Steiner Designs Monster Party, Now Available for purchase in Gerda Steiner Designs Store. I’m also using some of the Paper Temptress Card stocks, couple of my Favorite Vellum that the store carries. I’ll have all the links to the supplies I used in the descriptions below.
I absolutely Love this new stamp set, it has the most cutest Monsters ever, which I’m sure you’ll agree. I fell in love with this stamp set as soon as I saw them and I could not wait to start playing with them. This week was not a good week for me, I am sick and I still am but I could not resist the temptation to make something with this so I made something very clean and simple. I went ahead and used some of my Favorite vellums from Paper Temptress as well as her Crystal Mica Metallic card stocks. I personally Love Vellum and I have a hard time finding patterned vellum so I’ll continue to use these vellums, until I use them all up, lol. These vellums are not your ordinary vellum. They are textured but it’s also a Heavy duty vellum so your adhesive doesn’t even show up, unlike your ordinary vellum. I LOVE them ❤
I cut 2 of the vellum piece, with a MFT’s stitched bubble die and stamped out the sentiment that says, Do I smell Cake? I curved the sentiment slightly, so that it’ll line up with the thought bubble. I also stamped out the monster using MFT’s Hybrid black licorice ink on some Neenah solar white card stock. I colored the monster with my Shinhan Touch Twin Alcohol markers and attached it onto some Crystal Mica Metallic card stock from Paper Temptress. I hope you like this card and please check out the video for a full step by step tutorial. I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.

Today I made a card for Paper Smooches January Designer Search and the Sparks Challenge. I used Freezy Fellas stamp set and I also cut using MFT Die namics square grid cover up for my window panel for my card. I also cut snow banks out of Lawn Fawns Stitched hillside border die in various sizes. I cut a Designer Series paper from Stampin Up and a Vellum the same side as the square grid panel. I colored 3 snow mans using Copic Markers. I used the Tim Holtz tumble glass distress ink pad to give the snow banks some color. I first attached the snow banks to the Window panel to make things a little easier for me. I put the larger snow man out of the 3 in front of the window and put the other 2 behind the window to make it look like they are peeking in. After that I attached the Vellem to the back of this window with the snow banks. I then used a pencil to trace where the largest snow banks are going to be and put Foam adhesive all around the window and put foam adhesive along the top of the largest snowbank. This panel with be the front portion of my Semi-Shaker card. I say Semi because I used the washi tape to seal up all 4 sides of the window. I wanted to use vellum instead of the acetate because I wanted more of a muted background. I put some different sizes of sequins on the design paper and placed the window panel down and taped all 4 sides with the wash tape. I put the large snowman in front of the card using some foam adhesive and I stamped out the sentiment No Peeking with Stampin Up stamp with 2 different colors and punch it out using the Sampin Up’s Large scalloped die. I put foam adhesive on the sentiment and placed it on the top right hand corner. I have a Full tutorial on how I made this card on my Youtube Channel which I’ll be posting shortly if you’d like to check that out.
