Playing in a Couple of Challenges

I took sometime today to join in a couple of challenges.  I do like the first of the month as there are many that run the month, and, start on the 1st.  I'm there.

I am starting with a new one to me, Kat's Scrappiness September Card Challenge - Bling.  When I saw the "bling" I knew I wanted to play along as I wanted to try making an Endless Shaker card.

I started with a panel cut from Kat's Mini Slimline Double Stitched Dies.  [This is the smaller slimline, which to be honest, I really like better.  The total measurement of this mini slimline is 6 x 3.5.]  I blended on some oxide inks, and used the STAMPlorations Circle Texture Coverplate for added texture.

The HB is from Simon Says Clean Line Everyday; Believe in You. I also used the set from My Favorite Things Party Balloons [with matching dies] for the balloons, and the cute tiny bows are from Pretty Pink Posh Twine and Bows.  The bling feature of this shaker is the beautiful shaker stuffing.  I used some of Kat's Scrappiness 6mm Sparkling Clear Solid Confetti Mix, along with some colored sequins I had in my stash.  Overall, I love this card.  I will be doing this Endless Shaker Style again for sure.  I love the look.
I went on to join in the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.  Once again, I was inspired to create another shaker card.

I started with the MFT Stitched Star Die-namics and made it a shaker portion for the card.

Since I was going with a white card base, the background needed something..... so into my stash of water colored backgrounds, and came up with this beauty, which also went with the Simon Says Sentiment Strip. I thought it paired perfectly. :)
Okay, that is it for my creating today.  I will tell you, I started these cards at 9:00AM this morning, and it is now 2:30pm.  Wow - long day in the stamp room.  Good thing I had a blast joining in the challenges right?
SIDE NOTE:  Affiliated links are used in this post at no additional charge to you for using my links, but, I can possibly make a little something.  Thanks so much.

Thanks for stopping by~

Awesome shaker cards, Vicki! You need to do a tutorial on the edge-less shaker, it's fun!

Beautiful slimline card! You nailed the bling. I love your endless shaker card! The KS double stitched slimline is one of my fav. Thanks for playing along with Kat Scrappiness Challenge.
