Anything Goes in my last Repeat Impressions Challenge Blogpost



Happy Wednesday everyone! It's time for another fun challenge at Repeat Impressions. If there is a 5th Wednesday in the month, the challenge is my favorite: Anything Goes! Make any card and link it up for a chance at some great Repeat Impressions rubber! For all the details on what you can win and to see the other Rock Stars cards, please visit our blog.

I am fascinated with shaker cards especially when there are more than one shaker. I used the smallest square die in Repeat Impression’s Flip Die Set to cut the three diagonal openings in the card front. Then I laid the card front on a craft sheet on an electric griddle and melted some embossing powders around the edge for a fun look. I stamped “Dream Big” and then flipped the piece over on my Scor-buddy. I applied some acetate over the square holes and created individual shakers with two layers of mounting tape around each square.  I added some colored sequins and beads to each window. Here is a picture of how that looked, and also one with the shaker elements all shook up:



I find that attaching the front to a shaker card is easiest if it is the same size as the shaker layer and I push both layers into the left upper corner of the Scor-buddy (or any scoring tool) and attach them lining it up that way.

Today is my last day on the Repeat Impression’s design team. I have been a member of the Rock Stars for over five years now. Wendy gave me my first chance to be on a design team and I have enjoyed every minute of designing with her wonderful stamps. But it is time for a change and I decided I needed to free up some time to pursue some other adventures. I thank Wendy and Bill and Repeat Impressions for everything and hope to be a part of some blog hops occasionally with my friends on this wonderful team.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at 613 Avenue Create and Craft Your Passion.
