I have two cards today. I have a list of 14 challenges, and more than half of them are weekly challenges. Somehow it takes me until the week is more than half over before starting on the challenges.
Merry Monday #147- Stars, and SOS#190- Out of the Jar, and Simon Says Monday Challenge -No Rules. This shaker card incorporates stars in both the embossed panel, the shaker elements, and the embossed and inked background. The shaker bits and the embossing powder came from jars, small ones, but still jars.
I stamped, clear embossed and inked the background panel first, then die cut a window to create the frame out of one side of the inked panel. The clear pane was glued to the frame. A double layer of foam tape was laid on the base, the area filled with shaker bits-sequins, beads, gems. Two thirds of the card base was dry embossed, and the sentiment was heat embossed on Vellum. The completed shaker window was added to the card base last.

My second card is for the Card Concept #29 - Get well Soon, and the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes. This card is very simple, I started with a Navy card base, embossed the sentiment and then added a bow and ribbon strip towards the top. I grabbed a new to me tag die and cut a tag. Using multiple pigment inks I stamped paint splotches on the tag. After the ink dried the tag was hooked onto the bow.
