I've been making cards for my huge extended family as usual, and for the last part of last year, for craft fairs. Unfortunately, I wasn't blogging much. One of my goals for this new year is to blog more often and expand my audience. So now I needed some direction.
For that I went to the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge. here's the sketch.
And here is my take on the sketch:
I used the MFT stamp Penguins in Paradise stamp and die sets. I colored the images with copic markers and decided to create a shaker card.
Oh my headache. I used SUPER small seed beads and they kept falling out of the card. I was ready to throw the whole thing away. Then I remembered that I had bought myself the We Are Memory Keepers Fuse Tool Duh.
I made a pocket from a page protector and gathered up all the spilled seed beads and fused it shut. And, it worked!
I made the frame with Law Fawn's Stitched rectangle dies and then went to work on the background.
I used pattern paper from my stash and the My Favorite Things Stitched Snow Drift Dies to make the beach scene. I inked the edges of everything for a little depth.
The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Merry Messages stamp set.
Now I have something warm to look at during our blizzard this weekend.
