This is the last card we did in Deb's shaker card class. Can you imagine? We did four shaker cards! Such a good deal! Be looking for another fall card class from Deb (not shaker this time) in October. She is a fabulous instructor and very well organized.

Besides Halloween cards, we did two fall cards in Deb's Shaker card class. We stamped the pumpkins and covered the back of our shaker card with it. We also cut out tiny leaves on printed paper that became the confetti. The words were stamped with a multi metallic pad.

Took a class last night at Angela's Happy Stamper store. Deb was teaching us how to make shaker cards. I've done them in the past and found it frustrating and not a successful as I would like, so I was eager to see what good tips Deb would be teaching us. Was not disappointed! It was so much fun I thought I'd share the joy. Good news with this card is the foam, paper, and acetate all comes in a very inexpensive kit! Deb has us kick it up a notch by adding printed paper. The images are by Taylor Expressions.

Halloween cards are much more fun to make, but what I've needed are some sympathy cards. This strip of printed paper was on my desk so I used it as the starter for this card. It was added to a strip of soft white paper and then placed on a gray/green card. After stamping the words, the paper was run over the black pad to put a bit of a boarder. Thought black paper behind the white would look too severe. Kept the look simple which seems more fitting for a sympathy card.
This is a new image by IO. I've been mulling around ideas of how to use it. Picked a simple way today by stamping it on some paper that was sprayed with Dylusion sprays and water. The image was stamped in Versafine black. Added it to some printed paper and then some stickers and it all came together pretty quickly.
