Today’s Free for All Challenge (F4A373) on Splitcoast is to have something w/ wheels. I used a cute little golf cart & made a shaker card with it.

To make my shaker, I die cut the white panel, put into my Misti, stamped the Golf Cart w/ Memento, colored w/ Copics, then over stamped w/ Versafine. I also did an extra of just the area behind the shaker. Then I used a craft knife to cut out that area on the top version. The shaker pouch is just part of a clear envelope..the kind embellishments or stickers come in. I put some sequins in it then closed it up around any open edges. I like using these clear envelopes because they don’t add a lot of bulk & are still mailable. I did add some foam tape around edges of the top panel to give the shaker just a bit of room.

Here’s a little tip for you..see the brown sequins? They were actually gold..I colored them w/ a dk brown Copic (a brown Sharpie also works). Yep. It works! I added a little pennant for the greeting since it wouldn’t fit anywhere else. The green bg was stamped w/ the green ink & the Everything Golf Bg image.

Here are the Copics I used.

A big congrats to DJ Rants, the newest Featured Stamper (FS528) on Splitcoast! We were on the ODBD team together for quite a while & I’ve been an admirer of her fab gallery for a long time. After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the birthday theme & most of the layout, but I used different images, different paper & left off the top frame.
To make my birthday card, I die cut 3 white panels then sponged each of them from the top left inward, letting it fade to white in the lower right. I stamped & die cut the big Happy on the largest layer so the section wouldn’t be missed when the other layers were added on top. The little birthday was stamped on the lower right of the top panel. I also die cut 2 more big Happy dies out of white to shadow the stamped version. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

The theme for today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT626) is “The Eyes Have It”. We are to feature eyes or glasses in some way. So I have this quick little birthday card featuring a trio of frogs. Originally, their glasses were part of snorkel gear, but I cut that part off, leaving them w/ big glasses. 
After stamping, coloring & fussy cutting 3 of these frogs, I die cut 3 windows in a white panel & backed it w/ a pale blue panel. It looked a little too bare, so I used a splatter stamp to add the lt blue dots.  I also stamped, colored & fussy cut some balloons & party hats (both from the Party Pig image) to add along w/ the greeting to add to the bottom frog.

Here are the Copics I used.
