Easy Frameless Shaker Cards + Video + Giveaway | Got Joy Creations Holiday Card Series



Hello and welcome!

Today I am super excited to be Guest Designing for Dana's Got Joy Creation Holiday Card Series for 2019 by sharing a fun tutorial with you. I will show you a super-easy way to create shaker cards without any frame or foam, thus the Fameless Shaker Card. I’ve had this idea for the longest time and I am finally sharing with you how easy they are to put together.

I will keep this how to write up really brief on this post as it is easier to watch the video, plus to win today's GIVEAWAY (valued over $100 box of craft goodies) you'll have to leave comments on the YouTube Channels to qualify! Also, I share tons of my tips and tricks that I have learned along the way to make the card making process easier.



  CARD DETAILS

For my cards I used mostly products from Studio Katia, see links below for all the products I used.


I began with stamping out the images from the HAPPY SNOWMEN stamp set and then used the coordinating  HAPPY SNOWMEN dies to cut them out. I then colored them in using Copic Markers.


Next, I created my background panels by adding some MOONSTONE GLIMMER PASTE to the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2” panels using the CONFETTI stencil.


To create the frameless shakers, I used a page protector and trimmed the plastic slightly larger than the card panel, leaving a 1/2 inch border around. I then trimmed off the corners of the plastic.


To the back of the card panel, I added strips of adhesive tape. I then added the shaker bits to the center of the plastic sheet and then placed the panel finished side down onto the plastic sheet. Next, I flipped up the flaps adhering then to the back of the panel, sealing in all the shaker pieces.


I then added the finished shaker fronts to the A2 card bases.


To finish off the cards I popped on the images I colored previously and embellished them by adding sparkle and shine wherever I could.

Now let me tell you more about this Holiday Card Series.


The GJC Holiday Card Series runs from November 17 to December 14. Like I mentioned above, there will be tons of giveaways, tutorials and discount codes from sponsors.  Each day Dana will have a Guest Designer on her blog sharing their holiday card ideas just like I did here today. Hopefully, you will find something to inspire you to create holiday cards for your family and friends this year. Follow along on her YouTube Channel and make sure you leave comments on each designer's posts or videos for chances to win.

GIVEAWAY

I will be picking ONE lucky winner from comments left on both my YT Channel and Dana’s YT Channel to win a box full of goodies valued over $100. Good Luck!

Winners will be selected December 16 the more comments you leave the better your chances are of winning.

A special Thank You to Dana for having me here today to share this with her followers on her Blog and YouTube Channel. She is one very special and talented lady that excites this community with her JOY of cardmaking.

Hopefully, you all enjoyed this fun way making shaker cards and maybe next time will try this Frameless technique out!

Stamping, Blending, No Line Water Coloring with Atelier Inks | Ink On 3


Stamping, Blending, No Line Water Coloring with Atelier Inks | Ink On 3 by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

Hello friends!

Today I am sharing the cutest no line colored holiday card that I created while testing out the new Atelier Inks from Ink On 3. You all, these inks are like nothing you have used before, I can see why they took 2 years to develop. They are truly unique because of their versatility! They stamp, they blend, they are water-reactive, you can watercolor with them and just look how bright they are 😍 And of my favorite thing about them is that they work so well with Fadeout Ink for no-line coloring!

CARD DETAILS

I started off this card by stamping out and my images using Fadeout Ink and doing some masking to add a hat, mittens and the block of Ice from the Snow Buddies Stamp Set to the Ducky from Platy-rific Pondies.

I then watercolored the images in using the Atelier Inks. I loved how buttery smooth the inks felt when I blended them on to the paper and how well I could layer the colors. To add shadows to some of the areas I used Twiggy Brown and was pleasantly surprised at how well it blended with the previous colors.

Once I had finished water coloring I then stamped out some snowflakes from the Merry and Bright set using Juicy Ink and then heat set them using Arctic White Ultra Powder. Since the background was white this made it difficult to see the snowflakes, so using very light pressure I blended some of the Atelier Peacock Blue ink around the snowflakes to make them more visible. I first blended onto some scratch paper before blending it to the background and then I also used a dry paper towel to clean off any ink that was on the embossed snowflakes.

The sentiments I used also come from the Merry and Bright set that stamped using a stamping block, but I wished I had used the Misti so I could have stamped it twice to get more of a solid impression. To finish off the scene, I added water under the ice block also using the Atelier Peacock Blue ink and slightly touched the bottom of the sentiment to make it look like the letters were melting into the water. 

To finish off the image I used liquid pixie dust on the ice block to add some sparkle and added glossy accents to the ducky's beak. To darken the eyes I used a fine line marker and for highlights, I used a white gel pen.

Here is a closer look at this cutie. Just look at all the different shades of blue I got using only Atelier Peacock Blue ink pad. Blended sky, watercolored the hat, mitts, ice, water, and stamped out the sentiment. Unreal right!? And I love how it goes from an aqua like color to a dark blue. This time I didn't use ink from the Reinkers but if I had you probably would have seen even more gradients in the colors.
