Pairing Jillibean Soup's Coffee and Donuts clear stamps with DCWV Good Eats paper pad (interior sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Bicycle Built for You), I made this card for my cousin's bridal shower. Still a learning progress when it comes to alcohol markers and fussy cutting, but who doesn't love sprinkles! :)

Here is a second attempt at a shaker card and my first time using alcohol markers and distress inks. (Definitely jumping in headfirst lol) I decided to create an underwater themed card using this adorable Jillibean Soup stamp set, Whale Done. Distress inks are so fun to work with, especially on watercolor or Bristol smooth paper. Copics however, definitely take practice. After this card, I almost decided to give up on alcohol markers, which was almost a relief because it would've saved me a lot of $$$ lol. However, practice makes perfect and I easily fell in love with them. Luckily, I found that Blick Studio Brush Markers are an amazing alternative that give very similar results. In the end, I actually really like the way this card turned out. :)

This was the very first card I made using my Cuttlebug die cut machine. It came with the die to cut out the Hello sentiment, as well as the little dots. This card design was featured in the pamphlet that came with the machine. This was my first ever experience with a die cut machine and making a shaker card, so naturally there were some hiccups. First, I used Tombow Mono Multi glue, which I did not realize stayed tacky when dry. Second, I used lightweight single sided paper for the shaker bits, which was not a good decision. And third, I did not know what an embossing buddy was. In the end, I had a sticky card with white shaker bits that completely stuck to the sides of the shaker. Overall, its a bit of a mess, but I definitely learned what not to do, so hopefully sharing this can save someone else from making similar mistakes. Happy crafting! :)
