Crazy Card Party Challenge--Paste!

No not pasties! But we did consider that for a moment! This week at Crazy Card Party, Dee is challenging us to use paste. I love paste and use it all the time.

I tinted my paste light blue with my new Hero Arts ink and made a sort of trellis background with a stencil. Fun stuff!

Hope you play along with us this week and show us how you use your paste! Be sure to check out what the other Party-Ers have come up with.

Crazy Card Party Challenge-- Shaker Cards

This week on Crazy Card Party, Patricia is asking us to shake it up with a shaker card.  I made my first shaker card back in the spring for my mom. As you can see here, I put too many sequins in and they kept getting stuck!

So I tried a new technique this time and it worked better. But I won't first attempt at this card ended up in the confetti got stuck again...this time on the glue because I didn't wait long enough for it to dry when assembling the shaker part. Gong!!

This time I used a few pink sequins plus some flat confetti...silver hearts and silver wedding bells since it is a wedding card for our friends getting married this month.

Be sure to go check out the shaker cards created by the other Party-Ers!

Crazy Card Party--Die Cuts

This week on Crazy Card Party, Avril is asking us to use die cuts. I kinda cheated...I am only showing you the negatives of my die cuts...I hope that counts Av!!

I used my Simon dies to cut out these speech bubbles and backed them with some cool chevron Crate paper. I found English, French and German words for thank you in my PTI stash.

I hope you give your dies a work out this week and be sure to see what the other Party-Ers have come up with over at Crazy Card Party!

Crazy Card Party--Patio Lanterns!

This week it is my turn to host the Crazy Card Party challenge and I thought an inspiration photo would be a great idea...cue the Kim's time for some Patio Lanterns! A warm summer evening...out on your patio with a cold drink and the warm glow of some pretty patio lanterns...

Here's my anniversary card for my was 16  years for us at the end of June...

Take from the inspiration photo what you like...jars, lights, lanterns...anything at all...and don't forget to sing a little Kim Mitchell while you are at it! 

I hope you play along with us this week and be sure to check out what the other Party-Ers came up with!
