Mouse Shaker Card

Hello everyone!  Today is my day to post on the Victorine Originals blog.  I have this bright shaker card to share with you.
 I started by stamping the V.O. Mouse With Umbrella stamp (also part of the Mouse Set 1) with Versafine Onyx Black ink on watercolor paper.  I used Crayola Watercolor pencils and an aqua brush to color in the image.  I made it into a shaker card using GMD double pierced circle in and out dies, acetate, foam tape and sequins.
I used a GMD stitched rectangle die for the front panel.  The papers I used are from Doodlebug Design Fun In The Sun 6x6 pad.  The sentiment is from V.O. Floral and Sayings stamp set and I added some GMD Watermelon Colors enamel dots around it.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Emoji Fidget Spinner!

If you have kids, more than likely you will have heard about fidget spinners.  My boys have been asking to get one and I was leery at first, but they really are fun for the kids to play with!
Here is the emoji fidget spinner that we got from Oriental Trading.  It is totally a win-win since it has emojis on it.

My oldest son is 10 and he had the easiest time spinning it.  He really did a great job in a short amount of time playing with it.
My 7 year old and 4 year old have smaller hands and it wasn't quite as easy for them to spin in the air.  They could do it, but it would spin longer for them if they held it on the table.
And just so you know, both my husband and I have played with it too :)  They are fun!

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Sewing Framed Art

Hello all!  Today is my day to post on the SVG Attic blog.  I really was excited to make this project!  It is a vinyl saying with paper and lace accents in a frame.
The vinyl saying comes from the JGW Just Sew set.  I cut it out in black vinyl with my Silhouette Cameo and layered it on the patterned papers I chose from DCWV's Royal Gypsy stack.
I added navy lace hem facing around the bottom and used the thimble and diamond quilt block files from JGW Parlor Patchwork as well as the scissors file from JGW Just Sew to the left corner.  The finishing touch was a threaded needle that I wove into the lace.  I then placed it all into a 8.5x11" frame.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Twine ~ Happy Father's Day!

Hello all!  Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!  The Trendy Twine DT has lots of Father's Day inspiration for you on the Trendy Twine blog today.  This is the card I have to share with you.
I started out by stamping the large "Father Calligraphy" stamp and die cutting around it with a GMD stitched rectangle die.
The papers I used on this card are from DCWV's Luxe Lodge stack.  I die cut the front edge of the card with a GMD pine bough border die and wrapped Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine around that edge.  That color of Trendy Twine is one of my absolute favorites!  It is so versatile and perfect for masculine projects.

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
