Fruit Shakers from Summer to Fall

I had so much fun making shaker cards with the Queen and Co Fruit Basket kit!
Combining the patterned papers with some bright cardstock and a lemon shaker made it easy to create a fun, summery card!
 But the kit doesn't stop at summer lovin'! You can easily create an apple shaped card that would be perfect for a teacher thank you!

 I love the sentiment stamp set that comes with the kit too. And the "Awesome to the Core"sentiment will be perfect for my kids' teachers!

Distress Oxide Ink Layered Stamping on Kraft Cardstock

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is to use Ranger products and Splatter It!
I used the Distress Oxide Inks to stamp on the Kraft cardstock and then I used Distress White Picket Fence ink to flick white splatters on top.
I filmed a short video to show how beautifully the Distress Oxide Inks stamp on Kraft and how easy it is to create white splatters with the Picket Fence Distress Ink. Check it out here:

Distress Oxide Splatters on Resist Stamped Background

Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday challenge is to use Ranger products and Splatter It! So I decided to create a card with watercolor Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink splatters.
AND this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge is to use Simon Says Samp products for a Happy Birthday project! The background stamp I used is called Simon Says Stamp Circle Doodle Background and it is one of my favorite background stamps!

After smearing the Distress Oxide inks on a craft sheet, I got it really wet with a paint brush and then flicked it on top of a stamped and heat embossed background. By drying in between colors, I was able to layer up the Distress Oxide splatters without creating muddy browns.
I figured the colorful splatters were perfect for a birthday card, so I used the Poppystamps birthday sentiment die to create a die cut inlay sentiment.

Want to see how fun it was to splatter all those colorful inks? Check out this video I filmed:
