#386 Nuts & Bolts Robot Shaker Cards

Friday, February 11, 2022

This past December (?) Stampin' Up! was having a Starter Kit special for new Demonstrators. There were quite a few things I wanted and it was cheaper to go with the Starter Kit ... so ... I did.  

I'm at a point in my life where I just want to enjoy the creative process in whatever way it speaks to me. And, let's face it, stamping is in my DNA.

I was hoping to share LOTS more by now but Covid hasn't been kind.  Shug got it for Christmas and then I got it.  And then mom got it.  Thankfully, I was able to stay with her and help her during her recovery after she was released from the hospital.  (YES, my 83 year old mom was RELEASED from the hospital!) It kicked our butts but we're starting to get things rolling again.  Thank you, Lord!

I did have the opportunity to do LOTS of making at mom's and I enjoyed it so much! Of course, mom swooned over everything I did ... LOL! Nothing like your mom cheering you on.  {smiles}

I have been OBSESSED with these card front shaker cards (also known as edge-to-edge shakers).  They are so easy to make and bring so many smiles ... it just makes me happy.

I love giving each card its own unique identity ... like the inside of this Nuts + Bolts card.  

Isn't he a cutie!  These robots were super easy to color. I used my Copic markers and flicked the color on.
I'm so amazed by all of the great dies that are available now ... WOW! They really allow you to take card making to a new level ... and I love that!
I'm trying to use at least ONE product I already have every time I create.  This time it was a cloud stencil.  Yes, I'm obsessed with Distress Oxides and embossing ... thankfully it's an obsession I can live with.  LOL!
Seriously ... wouldn't you LOVE getting this happy little fella' in the mail? This card just brightens my whole entire day.
And don't forget the inside:
I hope this inspired you today ... or at least brought a smile to your face!
