Wishing You a Slice of Happiness (Queen & Company)

Hello! Today I have a really fun card to share using Queen & Company‘s Fruit Basket Shaker Kit. It’s one of my favorites, probably because I adore the cute fruit shaker toppings.  They’re adorable in the shaker as well as outside, used as little embellishments.  🙂

Queen & Company Fruit Basket Shaker Kit

The kit includes a themed paper pad, dies, stamp set, custom toppings and foam/acetate pieces. Plenty to make quite a number of shaker cards.

Along with the tiny grapefruit slices, I also added in some Diamonds, pink Pops and yellow Gems.  The diamond toppings are amazing and available in sets or individual refills. I use a lot of clear diamonds so that is awesome news to me!

To adhere the outer frames and additional toppings on the card front, I find that Sheer Glue works best. If I accidentally use a bit too much glue and it squishes out from underneath, I use a dampened Q-tip or corner of a paper towel to gently wipe away the excess.

If you think you’ll love the Fruit Basket Shaker Kit so much that you may run out of supplies, also available are refills:  Fruit Basket paper pad, Fruit Toppings and Foam and Acetate pieces.

Thanks for stopping by!  🙂

Starfish Wishes & Mermaid Kisses (Queen & Company Under the Sea Shaker Kit)

Hi everyone! Thanks for visiting today!  I’ve been playing some more with Queen & Company‘s SUPER fun Under the Sea Kit. It truly is an amazing kit!

Queen & Company Under the Sea Shaker Kit

Lots of dies, toppings, coordinating stamp set, foam/acetate, idea sheet… All you really need is adhesive, ink and card stock. But plan for time, only because it is SO addictive!

Queen & Company Under the Sea Shaker Kit

Here I’ve used the sweet mermaid again, adding an embossed panel of bubbles and a star fish behind her. (My first mermaid card can be found HERE.) I used a Kirarina Wink White Pearl glitter pen to add a bit of detail to the starfish. I love that the dies cut the faux stitching. That little bit adds so much!

Queen & Company Under the Sea Shaker Kit

Inside the mermaid’s tail, I used toppings from the kit as well as a sprinkling of tiny white stars from Jewels. Sooooo soooo cute. And sparkly! I also decided to add a bit of blush to the mermaid’s cheeks. I used Jane Davenports Birthday Suit Pastel Palette and a q-tip.

If you like the ocean or know someone who does, I highly recommend this kit for some super quick and EASY cards they are sure to love! (Refills also available!) When grabbing your kit, also pick up the brand new Sea Stone Bundle.

They coordinate PERFECTLY! (They’re on my wish list.)

Fun with Sentiment Stackers and Foundation Dies (queen & company)

Hello! Today I’m sharing two more cards using Queen & Company‘s awesome Sentiment Stackers and Foundation Dies.  (You can view my previous posts using these fun products HERE and HERE.) Each Sentiment Stacker set comes with 20+ dies and a coordinating sentiment stamp set.  And the Foundation dies are perfect bases for sentiments or stamped images. Very versatile!

On this card I used the flower die from Foundation Dies 2 and sentiment from Sentiment Stackers Dies 2.

I cut thin strips of Delightful Dots patterned paper, adhering each strip to white cardstock in a rainbow pattern then die-cut into the flower shape. Once adhered to my card front, I added Solid Goosebumps to each center.

Here I created a super quick and easy baby card using Sentiment Stackers 2 and Foundation Dies 1.

The sentiment was assembled and adhered to the foundation dies, then adhered to pretty Flirty Florals patterned paper. Lastly, I added a few irridescent white Spirals.

You can always see what’s new and exciting with Queen & Company HERE. There are LOVELY new Sea Stones…

…which would go perfectly with the Under the Sea Shaker kit. Aren’t they lovely?? (I have two posts with three cards each using the Under Sea Shaker Kit here and here.)

Thanks so much for visiting today!

(Not) Feeling Crabby about Queen & Company’s Under the Sea Shaker Kit

Hi everyone! I’m back today with more from Queen & Company‘s new Under the Sea Shaker Kit. (You can see my previous post HERE.) The kit is so much fun, and so easy. Basically, all you need in addition to the kit is base card stock and glue.  🙂

I first used this cute crab. After die-cutting his body from patterned paper, I die-cut him again from white card stock, placing the white under the patterned paper for a bit more stability. Once the crab was assembled and adhered over the blue wave paper, I cut pieces from the leftover foam (from the middle of the body) to place under the claws and eyes.

I also used a Paper SmoochesPolka Dots Border die to cut “bubbles.” The dies cut many small circles at once so I keep that set handy. There are so many uses for it.

Next, I used the cute dolphin. Inside I placed toppings from the kit.

After stamping the sentiment, I cut the sides at an angle, punched holes and tied in place using string. (It is also secured in the center with adhesive.)

Lastly, I have a sweet seahorse. Inside, I placed a couple of the toppings from the kit as well as a sprinkling of clear diamonds.

I added a couple of stars die-cut using the center piece from the sand dollar and adhered a sea shell sequin into each center.

You can find all of the extras available for the kit HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Queen & Company’s NEW Under the Sea Shaker Kit

Queen & Company has a new shaker kit, Under the Sea, and it is hugely addictive! And it is big! The set includes 16 dies, an Under the Sea paper pad, 27 foam/acetate pieces, custom toppings and a 4×6 stamp set.  I created six cards, three of which I’m sharing today. It is seriously soooo cute. Shaker cards are so much fun anyway…but these? Eek!

Queen & Company Under the Sea Kit - Mermaid

First I created an adorable mermaid. So so so cute! (I can’t help repeating myself.) The hair die cuts a little slit where the forehead is inserted. Such a nice touch.

Queen & Company Under the Sea Kit - Mermaid (close-up)

I used Foundation Dies #2 to cut the circle and scalloped border then placed Irridescent Purple Goosebumps between each scoop. In the tail I added shell toppings from the kit along with purple Under the Sea Diamonds. They’re SUPER sparkly. I love the diamonds because, you know…diamonds! 🙂

Queen & Company Under the Sea Kit - Sea Shells

Next I have a card using two of the different shell dies from the kit. I first die-cut diagonal strips from Foundation Dies #1 then white embossed the sentiment on the bottom strip.

Queen & Company Under the Sea Kit - Sea Shells (close-up)

Inside the pink shell I placed pink Under the Sea Diamonds, shell toppings and a sprinkling of glass flake toppings. I don’t really know if they’re glass, but they’re pretty.  🙂

Queen & Company Under the Sea Kit - Shark

And lastly (for today), I have a shark. He’s filled with the blue and black glass,  and clear bubbles (all included) as well as clear diamonds.

Queen & Company Under the Sea Kit - Shark (close-up)

The sentiment panel was die-cut using Foundation Dies #2 with a blue Goosebump on each side. (I ran the die-cut sentiment strip through my die-cutting machine twice, sliding down one side in the die to shorten the strip.)

Should you decide you love this kit as much as I do, there are refills available also: foam/acetate refills, topping refills, dies (available as part of the kit or separately), and Under the Sea paper pad. And don’t forget the super sparkly Under the Sea diamonds.  🙂

Thanks so much for visiting today! I’ll be back soon with three more cards using this fun set!

Foam and Foil Fun (queen & company)

Hello! Today I’m using some fun products from one of Queen & Company‘s latest releases — sentiment stackers and foundaton dies, fun foam, foil and flowers. A comprehensive list of all products used can be found at the bottom of this post.

This quick and easy birthday card was creating using Foundation Dies 2, Sentiment Stackers 1 and 2, pink glitter foam and Candy Land 6×6 patterned paper.

The glitter foam comes in a pack of seven sheets in rainbow colors. So sparkly!  I die-cut Celebrate from white foam and layered atop the glitter foam for added dimension.  So easy!

For this card, I adhered a block of foil to white cardstock then die-cut using “thanks” from Special Word Dies 2 and “friend” from Special Word Dies 1.

Orange Daisy Flowers were adhered using Sheer Glue with a sprinkling of orange and yellow Jelly Gems adhered in the centers. All pieces were adhered to a block of my favorite Simple Stripes 6×6 patterned paper.

Thanks so much for visiting today.  🙂

Shaker Garden of Baby Peonies

Hello everyone! Today I have a fun card to share combining a cute Stamping Bella image with the fun of Queen & Company‘s shaker elements.

Stamping Bella Peony Baby in a Pot

I used super-sweet Baby Peony in a Pot (and coordinating die) with a sentiment from Mail Chick. After stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloring with Copic markers, I die-cut each image then layered atop the shaker.

Stamping Bella Peony Baby in a Pot (close-up)

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E07, E08, E09, E11, E21, G21, G24, G28, R20, RV66, V01, V12

Unfortunately, the foam shaker kit, Lines, is not currently available. But inside, I placed Rubble (shaker topping), then used Simple Stripes paper over top. I cut a small slit in each pot to insert the sliver of black card stock (as a sign stick), assembled the signs and inserted each pot behind the stripes. To add a bit of dimension, the sentiment strips were each adhered using Kool Tak clear foam squares.

Queen & Company’s Happy Hearts Shaker Kit

Hi everyone!  Earlier this month I posted these two cards on Instagram but then realized yesterday I had not yet shared here.  Both use Queen & Company‘s new Happy Hearts Shaped Shaker kit.

The kit includes four heart dies, twelve foam/acetate shakers and a 3×4 clear stamp set. Toppings sold separately. I used pink and white Pops inside my shaker.

The super cute paper is from new Happy Hearts 6×6 paper pad.

On this card, I used two different heart dies from the kit and focused a bit more on a less feminine color scheme.

Inside the shaker I used Diamonds, Gems and black and white Sequins. As a finishing touch, I adhered a few blue Bubbles.
