Hydrangea Shutter Peekaboo Card



Hello my crafty friends,

My card today is a Shutter Peekaboo card that I created.  Last week on Susan’s Garden Club Live Susan did one of these cards so I had to try one.   I made one years ago way before I was making Susan’s flowers boy they really dress this card up.  I had an inspiration picture in mind when I did the flowers so decided to combine the card with my inspiration.

this was my inspiration for the flowers:


Finished card is 5″ X 7″

Susan did a video for creating card which can be found here

The patterned paper I used was an old Close to My Heart – Laughing Lola.

For the flowers I used white Soft Finish Cardstock colored it with Distress Oxide Inks then cut flowers.  Flowers were shaped using Susan’s tools and molding mats then built.

Sentiment in the peekaboo is a Close to My Heart stamp.

Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words Happy Birthday was used cut from cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back – once from black and once from white.  I adhered the black first then white offsetting a little to give a little shadow.

This card is really a fun card just need to take your time and go step by step.

Hope that it is an inspiration for you to make your own Shutter Peekaboo card.

Thanks for stopping by today and until next time – Happy Crafting!

Friendship Hydrangeas


Hello My Crafty Friends!

Hope that everyone is enjoying their summer at least to the best of your abilities during these trying times.

Today I have a card I for a friend that has just had hip surgery so will be going to visit her soon.  I (re)created using a technique called Black Magic for background and an arrangement that Susan did a couple of weeks ago.

Card is a 6″ X 6″ created from white Soft Finish Cardstock 110#

6″ X 6″ Black cardstock using Distress Oxide Inks (I used 3 color Sprays) create background.  Tear around the edges and use Distress Ink to ink edges (Antique Linen used here).  Video for Black Magic backgrounds can be found at end of video found here 

Hydrangeas were something I had already created so not sure what colors or techniques that I used.  A couple of ferns were laid down first (but they really don’t show so not needed) added my hydrangeas and leaves using Kids Choice Glue.  Placed them so that there would be room for sentiment.

Stamped sentiment in black ink on white cardstock tore edges then inked with the Distress Ink Antique Linen used dimensional dots to adhere to card front.

Hope this is an inspiration for you and you will go play!

Thanks for stopping by and until next time – Happy crafting!

Remember Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s new release with Spellbinders is just a month away – you will love it!  I am so proud that she selected me to be on her Design Team I started on her team with Elizabeth Craft Designs.
