Thanks for holding on here with me for my 3rd post of the day!  I am once again Guesting over on the My Favorite Things blog today!  In case you missed it, here is what I shared using some amazing stamps and Die-namics.

I am always in need of wedding/anniversary/love-themed cards so I thought I’d share some that I’ve made.
I am enjoying the shaker card trend again and I thought this one would be fitting for an “anytime” card for your loved one. I’ve used Blueprints 16 to die cut my frame from Steel Grey Card Stock and stamped it with the Diagonal Stripes Background with black ink.


My sentiment, from Always and Forever, was stamped with various inks onto white card stock as the backdrop for my shaker. The shaker is filled with mini star sequins, from Pretty Pink Posh, and the frame is embellished with enamel dots and a die-cut star from Blueprints 16 and adhered to Electric Red cardstock.


I love to use my dies to emboss as much as I love using them to die cut. I wanted to add some elegance but die cutting the large Peek-a-Boo Heart Frames was too much so I embossed it into a panel of Steel Grey Card Stock. My sentiment, from Together Forever, was stamped with white ink into the center of the heart with a few glittery enamel dots placed beneath.


Now let’s talk about that glittery banner border embellishing the top of my card. I’ve die cut the mini banners from Blueprints 16 out of glitter paper and aligned them up at the top of my main panel. A simple line of stitching across the banners, leaving the ends loose, adds to the elegant feel and also anchors them securely in place to the card.


Thanks again goes out to My Favorite Things for inviting me to guest on the blog!
