I love a versatile tool and the Dewlet die is just that. The perfect little (but not too little) teardrop for petals, leaves, raindrops, balloons, and whatever else you think of. In this card, I’ve used the die as a stencil to draw out a pattern as well as a die to cut out shapes in that pattern. And that simple repeating pattern gets jazzed up with pen detailing, glitter, and a couple of shaker windows, too.
If you get the blues being away from friends and family, this is a sweet card to say how much you miss them. Change up the color scheme or sentiment, though, and it could easily be a baby or wedding shower card. Add some flowers and you’ve got an April Showers card. All from a simple repeating background and a few well-chosen embellishments.

I love shaker cards but I really don’t make them all that often. I was looking around my craft room and found some googly eyes and thought those would be fun in a shaker card. Plus I was thinking this months color, Sangria would make a really cool eery sky.
Watch my video below to see how I used Delicata, VersaColor and Sheer Shimmer Spitz to create my eery sky and how I put together my shaker card. Enjoy!

I long for a white Christmas again, but in the meantime I am creating some beautiful snow themed projects using the exquisite new Delicata Sapphire Blue ink. I love how the blue and silver compliment the soft snowflake theme inside the window. It has certainly become one of my most favorite new ink colors—perfect for all my blue needs.
Time: 45 minutes
Use a die-cut and cut a window out of smooth white cardstock. I use washi tape to secure the parts in place and make sure they cut where I want the window to be.
Use Delicata Sapphire Blue with direct to paper technique to ink all around the window. Remember to only apply slight pressure or repeatedly tap the ink onto the cardstock to add color. TIP: Dragging the ink pad may damage your inkpad on sharp corners and edges.
Ink the top edge of an embossing folder with Delicata Dark Brown Shimmer and emboss the wood grain onto your inked panel. Blend some Delicata White shimmer around the edges of the panel for some added shine.
Build a shaker box with acetate and foam tape and fill with sparkly snowflakes. Adhere card base, shaker and window together.
Punch some leaves and adhere it to the front bottom edge of the window. Add a paper strips with a stamped sentiment over the punched leaves to form a plant box look. Finish off card with diamanté and snowflake elements.
