Each month the Paper Crafts Go-To Gals challenge each other to create a project featuring products from a selected company. This month we’re pleased to feature products from Hazel & Ruby.
I decided to make a quick and simple shaker card from the Party On Pic Pockets. Pic Pockets are clear, pre printed pockets that can be used to create banners, mini picture books, wall art, beautiful cards and more! Each set contains 6 pieces with 6 unique designs.
I chose this striped pocket to make my card. I trimmed a bit off the side to make the pocket fit the front of a Clear A2 sized card. I was able to add some red line tape behind a few of the printed stripes to adhere the pocket to the front of the card.
I then added sequins to the pocket and closed the opening with more clear tape. Next, I die cut several layers of DCWV Pink Foil card stock with the new MFT Happy Die-namics. (I have a serious crush on this word die!) I adhered 3 layers of the Happy to resemble chipboard and lift the title off of the pocket.
I wanted to able to write a sentiment inside the clear card so I added pieces of white card stock sized the same as the front window to the inside of the card as well as the back. Sandwiching these layers to the inside and back allowed me to hide all of my adhesive as well.
Once last tip – I added a reverse cut Happy to the inside front cover to finish the card and cover the adhesive from my front title.
I loved the birthday themed release this month!!! Birthday cards are the ones I am always making so these new goodies were be an awesome addition to my stash!! Love your releases again this month Laina!!

Hop on over to the MFT Blog to see the Birthday page I created for my son. I got real inky with this one and tried some new techniques with the MFT inks. Love sketches? I included one for the page as well!
I couldn’t part with this pretty leftover scrap from my title die-cut paper and decided to use it for a much needed card.
I trimmed the scrap paper down at an angle and adhered it to my card base. I inked “Birthday” from the Delicious Birthday stamp set with Sour Apple Dye ink. Before stamping the image, I added some Gumdrop Green Dye ink to the bottom portion of the sentiment with an Ink Blending Tool. I love how the inks blend and create an ombre effect. After stamping I die cut the sentiment with the Sentiment Strips Die-namics and adhered with pop dots. The little accents at the top were cut from the page scraps as well. Easy and economical!

For today’s blog hop I chose to work with the new Everyday Circus collection. I feel in love with the mix of rich color and textures in this eclectic collection.
The collection embellishments include die cuts, tags, stickers, and library pockets. The library pocket was a snap to dress up with stickers and add my journaling.
I layered several tags and die cuts to this cluster of embellishments. Although this collection has a “Circus” theme, it really can be used for any type of page.

Between the Summer Break madness that happens around this house, I managed to squeeze in a little time this week for some quick cards and coloring. My pal Teri knows how much I love my new Copic markers and made sure I had some cute stamps from Technique Tuesday to use.
Instead of my usual over-thinking and making my cards too complicated, I took the clean and simple approach. (I tend to think of that 4×5.25 rectangle needing as much products as a layout!)I really love how these turned out and plan on continuing this approach to overcome my fear of making cards.
For both cards, I stamped my images directly onto a Neenah Solar White card stock base with MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. MFT Hybrid Ink is my new go-to ink especially when using Copic markers. The black is more dense than Momento and leaves a crisp streak-free image every time.
After stamping, I added some quick color and shading to the open areas with my trusty Copic markers. I finished off the design by adding strips of patterned wash tapes. Quick, simple and fun!
