#JOSTTT005 Balmy Tropics

The Facebook group I belong to, The Joy of Sets, has a fun monthly Tic Tac Toe challenge blog (check it out here) and this time around, I actually achieved TWO rows! I was having a difficult time trying to decide what to do at first. But once I decided to stop overthinking it, it just started to flow. I love all the layers on this card and how there is such depth – some things are popped up on one Dimensional, some on two and the shaker component is made with the Foam Adhesive Strips. I can’t stop shaking it – I love the sound of the diamonds in it! Interactive shaker cards are the best!

Here’s the #JOSTTT005 May Challenge:JOSTTT005 Challenge

I did Green-Flowers-Stripes and Stripes-Blue-Emboss and I’m feeling so accomplished!

Silly for Spinners

As the day of the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog release approaches, it’s always bittersweet. I am super excited for all the new colors and products, but also a little forlorn thinking about products past. I needed to make some Birthday cards for kids and I really like to have some kind of interactive element to them. Hunter suggested I make spinner cards. I hadn’t used my spinner pieces in years! I decided to brush off several retired items to make these cards and I’m so glad I did. I’m having a hard time not keeping one for myself just to fiddle with!
