May 1st creation

Happy May!


I am hoping to resume my daily “matchup” card that I dropped the ball on way back in January.


Today’s challenge: Papertrey Ink stamps + Sassafrass Lass paper + shaker card


2016 Card 51 - Papertrey Ink On My Couch


I forgot how hard shaker cards are LOL.  I avoid them even though I took a class in last year making them from a kit (that I still haven’t finished…ha).   I made two mistakes with this one – forgetting to ground my images and not adding enough sequins.   I do like how it turned out but there is definitely room for improvement on the next one. To add a little pizzazz, I paper pieced the lamp shade, chair and pillow. This is still one of my favorite techniques in crafting!


Thanks for stopping by!
