Age is just a number – The 30 Day Coloring Challenge

It’s the last day of The 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Due to health problems this time not many colouring done. But every day I have taken me-time to read on the blog and look at all the beautiful things that were made. Kathy (The Daily Marker) it was great again, thank you so much and I hope next year an other Coloring Challenge.

This week I made a shaker card, it’s a birthday card for a friend. It’s often difficult to make up a male card  especially if you made every year for the same person a birthday card. But a shaker card I never made for him, so this time I did.
I used a stencil and three colours of Distress Oxide to blend numbers on the front panel.
Then I die cutted a heart out of that panel and with the same die and a smaller piece out if the die cutting nest, I cutted  a frame.
Out of three different colours of cardstock I die cutted numbers for the shaker part.
I glued the heart on to my base card and put  2 mm foam tape around it, that is my shaker part. Then I put the numbers in that heart.
Behind the heart opening that I die cut in the front panel I glued some transparent sheet, then I glued this part on top of my base card in such a manner that the transparent closes the shaker part.
To finish the shaker part I adhered the frame on top of the transparent.
The sentiment, Age is just a number in Dutch, I made on my computer, I cut it to the right size and finished my card by putting the sentiment with some foam tape on the card.

Dag 1 Merry Making Kaart 2

Bij de 2e kaart van dag 1 draait het bij de achtergrond om het embossen met embossingpoeder.
De kaart heeft 2 lagen goud embossing, de stempels zijn vintage gestempeld en ge-embost en daarna nog eens de bessen apart ge-embost.
Hierna met waterspetters en embossingpoeder “sneeuw” gemaakt.
Spetter water over je werk, strooi embossingpoeder erover heen en smelt je poeder met je heattool. Zorg ervoor dat je lang genoeg, niet te lang anders wordt het wit bruin, maar wel lang genoeg verhit zodat het water kan verdampen, dan zet het zich vast. Embossen met water kan alleen met spetters en niet met een hele stempel, heb je altijd embossing inkt voor nodig.
De tekst is 4 x uit rood gestanst en daarna bewerkt met embossingpoeder, alsof er sneeuw op gevallen is.
