3 cards and Giveaway!

Today I am sharing three cards using supplies from the September Card kit by SimonSaysStamp.

What I love about those kits is that you get supplies you wouldn’t normally order as a cardmaker/mixed media artist. So I fell in love with those acetate 3×4 cards!

Although they are supposed to be used on project life, I can not think a better acetate to use for your shaker cards! The kit also comes with gesso and I will be sharing a couple of ways to use it creatively in your cards.

CARD 1:

For my first card I paper pieced the balloons and used the adorable patterned paper from the kit. I have also used gesso over the stencil to create a white on white embossed effect for my card base.

CARD 2: 

For the second card I used a lovely 3×4 acetate card to create a shaker window. I have also used gesso to add some splashes and make the background more interesting.

CARD 3:

Another shaker card using a colorful patterned paper and a beautiful acetate card.  For the sentiment I die cut the word hello and placed it directly on the acetate.

    Hi Vicky, I love all your journal pages and have just started making Christmas cards, your work is so much appreciated, you have inspired me to try my own style of art journaling. In my early sixties’ I still love the bright colours, they light up my day’s, and so does your lovely work.
