With Valentine's day quickly approaching, I'm working on another Valentine's day card. First I sized the images to my desired dimensions and reversed one of the whales to make them a couple. Next I printed the digital out using my printer, then I used my Brother Scan n Cut to cut out the images. My Spectrum Noirs were used to add color to the digital image. The ocean background using Ranger Posh Impressions Rainbow Inks, Luminous Metallics in the following colors: Violet, Blue and Teal. I placed chunky sequins and beads in the center of the card for the shaker aspect of the card. I finished it off by finding the paper for the shaker card border in my paper bin and cutting it using scalloped rectangle stackables and adhering to my card using foam tape.

Newton's Nook Designs current Inky Paws Challenge is Use a Heart and the Neat & Tangled challenge blog called Little Tangles and the theme is Anything Goes. I used Newton's Nook Designs stamp set called Beautiful Wings and Neat & Tangled stamp set Floral Heart. I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color the images. The sequins are from Neat & Tangled collection Bubble Gum mix. My design inspiration for this card came from Daria from Neat & Tangled.

For my first critter swap for 2017 I used this free Gerda Steiner Designs image. First I printed the digital out using my normal printer, then I used my Brother Scan n Cut to cut out the image. The Brother Scan n Cut didn't cut all the small inside details of the image so I used my hobby knife to give it a clean finish. My Spectrum Noirs were used to add color to the digital image. "Have a Mice" was created using cole's ABCs lawn cuts by Lawn Fawn . I finished it off by finding the paper background in my paper bin and cutting it using large stitched rectangle stackables by Lawn Fawn. I hope you enjoyed this card. Happy Crafting!

Happy New Year!!! I hope everyone is having a happy and healthy New Year. This is my first blog post for my very first design team, Jess Crafts Digitals; you can find out more about Jess Craft Digitals by clicking here.
In the craft world we are already working on Valentine cards. My first Valentine's day card for 2017 is a shaker card, it also happens to be my first shaker card. To cut out the elephants and the background I used my Brother's Scan and Cut machine. I colored the elephants using my Spectrum Noir markers, the male elephant is a few shades darker than the female. I used 3M foam tape to make the layers for the shaker card and acetate sheets for the shaker window.
