Happy Halloween!

Hi everyone! I have a easy and fun Halloween card to share with you using a New Layering Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs September 2022 Release. No coloring and I hope you enjoy. I will have a coupon and supplies listed down below.

This is such a neat stencil set. I love layering stencils. I used the New Layered Bands Stencil. I chose to use traditional Halloween ink colors for my card today. It comes with 2 stencils and its very easy to line up. I used Hammermill cardstock with Catherine Pooler Orange Twist, Catherine Pooler Martini, and Lawn Fawn Grape Jelly ink. When I was done ink blending, I cut out my panel with a stitched square die from my stash.

I then used a scalloped Circle die from Lawn Fawn with white cardstock and ink blended it with Grape Jelly ink to match. I had these cute glittered Halloween stickers so I added them to my scalloped circle. I stamped a sentiment from Lawn Fawn onto my square panel and added it to a coordinating card base, I added foam tape to the back of my scalloped circle before adhering it on. Lastly, I added some black sequins. I hope you like my card using the New Layering Bands stencil. Use my code VonFan10 to save 10% off your purchase.

I used Bunch of Boys Stencil with the Onesies Stencil for my Mini Slimline Card today. I used Hammermill cardstock with the Onesies stencil first using Pinkfresh Studio Mint ink. I then used the Bunch Of Boys Stencil with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink.

Happy Pumpkin Spice Season!

Hello my friends! I hope you are doing great. I have a Fall card today. I’m so excited for the Fall Season. Yay!!!! I am participating in the current Inky Paws Challenge #182 by Newton’s Nook Designs.

This challenge is a color challenge. You are to use Orange, Green, Black, and Green. I had so much fun making this card. I used Newton’s Nook Designs Pumpkin Latte Stamp Set. I stamped some images with My Favorite Things Extreme Black ink onto white cardstock using my Misti Stamping Tool. I colored the images in using my Copic Markers. I then used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut my images out as I do not own the coordinating dies. I decided I liked this image with the girl holding pumpkins and a latte for my card design best.

I used cream cardstock from my background. I used the Marvelous Masks Pumpkin from A Colorful Life Designs and ink blended with Catherine Pooler Orange Twist ink and Lawn Fawn Clover ink. I used second to the largest pumpkin mask. I cut my ink blended pumpkin cardstock with my paper trimmer as well as some black pattern paper from Pink Paisley’s retired Spellcast paper pack to layer it onto.

I placed my pumpkin background into my misti stamping platform and stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the Pumpkin Latte stamp set. I used Versafine Clair ink in Green Oasis with Clear Embossing Powder. I layered my background and pattern paper to a A2 card base. Foam was added to my ink blended cardstock before added to my pattern paper using liquid glue. I added my image with foam squares. I masked my card base to ink blend the edges with Orange Twist ink. Finally, I decorated my card using green liquid drops, white gel ink accents, and a cream twine bow.

Hi everyone! I hope you’re doing great. I have a Fall card today that I made for the Sweet’ n Sassy Facebook Fall Challenge. I will have supplies that are still available listed down below for you!

I don’t have any Fall Stamps from Sweet ‘n Sassy unfortunately so I used this Beautiful stamp set called Special Blooms for my Fall card. I started out with Hammermill cardstock and I stamped and heat embossed the Shiplap background stamp with WOW opaque white embossing powder and Versamark ink. I ink blended it with Gina K Designs Mustard ink. I love how it turned out. I then cut it out with a rectangle die using the second to the largest from a older MFT die set. On white cardstock, I stamped one of the images from Special Blooms with black ink and colored it in with my Copic Markers. I colored it in with Fall colors in mind. I hope I succeeded. I then fussy cut out the image.

Next, I cut out some more white cardstock using the largest rectangle die and ink blended it with Gina K Designs Prickly Pear ink. I layered both panels together and added it to a A2 card base. To make my card a little more Fall I used an old Martha Stewart leaf paper punch and used ink daubers to ink up the leaves. I used some more Gina K Designs ink in Tomato Soup, Christmas Pine, Prickly Pear. I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment from Happiness Blooms with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and Hero Arts Clear embossing powder. I cut down my sentiment using my paper trimmer. I then added foam tape to the back of my image and sentiment. Finally, I added all my elements and now I have a Fall card. Yay. I did embellish my card with Orange You Glad Sparkle Blends and pinched my leaves for dimension. I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to my leaves and center of blooms for fun.

Well that finishes my card. I hope you like it, I had a lot of fun using what I had in my stash to make a Fall card for the challenge.

On this card I used Marvelous Masks Onesies Stencils #2, Bunch Of Girls Stencil, and Onesies Stencil. These stencils are so cute together. I started out with Hammermill cardstock.

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing great. I have a Flamingo card today. Mini Slimline and I hope you like it! I will have supplies listed down below for you! My motivation for this card were these Flamingos I recently seen at the Las Vegas Flamingo Hotel. They were very thirsty, it was so really HOT that day.

I started out using a gel press print that I had made previously. I used a Monstera Mini Slimline die from Trinity Stamps to cut out using my Gel Press print. I think it looks very tropical. I used a Flamingo die from Scrappy Tails Crafts. I cut out all the pieces with white cardstock. I ink blended using a Bubblegum and Guava ink from Simon Says Stamp. I added foam tape to my feathers before adhering them. I ink blended the nose or beak with black ink.

I used a fun sentiment from Taylored Expressions that I stamped in Bubblegum ink on white cardstock. I cut it out with a paper trimmer to fit my Mini Slimline panel. I glued my panel to a white Mini Slimline card base. I then added my flamingo and sentiment with liquid glue. I added some sequins and clear glaze and that finishes my card. I hope you like it.

Hoppy Halloween-Inky Paws Challenge #180

Hi everyone! I hope your doing great today. I have a fun Halloween card and I chose to participate in the Newtons Nook Inky Paws Challenge #180-Sketch Challenge. I will have supplies listed below for you!

Here is the card I made using the Inky Paws Challenge #180-Sketch:

It’s been so long since I joined the Inky Paws Challenge and it was definitely time. I love the sketch. I first started out looking through my stash and I found this cute Halloween Stamp called Hoppy Halloween which is a retired stamp set. It is a older stamp but still one of my favorites. I started out with some Neenah Solar White 80lb. Cardstock. I stamped and heat embossed the image with Versafine Black Onyx ink and Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder. I colored the image in with my Copic Markers and fussy cut it out.

I made my background using white cardstock with Catherine Pooler Grape Crush and Glam ink using Blending Brushes. I flicked some water droplets and dried the excess with a paper towel. I then used the Flying Bats Stencil with a Black ink refill and Tim Holtz Distress Grit Paste Snowfall. I applied the paste using a spatula. As it was drying I spritz some Lindy’s Gang Violaceous Violet and let it dry some more. I cut it out with a A2 Stitched Rectangle die. I used a oval die with white cardstock that I ink blended with Simon Says Stamp Twilight ink. I flicked water droplets and dried the excess with a paper towel. I then used a grass die with black cardstock and green cardstock. I ink blended the green cardstock a little with Catherine Pooler Martini ink. I spritz some Lindy’s Gang in Steel Shimmer Spray to darken it a little and add shimmer. I cut my grass borders with the same oval die.

I thought my card needed something else, so I used the Gingham Stencil with the same purple inks Glam and Grape Crush on white cardstock. I ink blended it a little more to match my flying bats background. Next, it was time to put my card together. I glued my stenciled background panels together onto a A2 card base, adding a black cardstock strip to separate them, trying to copy the sketch. I added foam tape to my grass layers, bunny image, and oval die-cut. I stamped and heat embossed this cute sentiment with Clear Embossing ink and Wow Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder on Black cardstock. I cut my sentiment down to fit onto my card front and added it with foam tape. Lastly, I added white gel accents with my Gelly Roll Pen and black sequins. I hope you like my card, I had so much fun making it.

Unicorn Shaker Cards

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well. I have my last GDT project for Doodles Paper Playground today. I hope you will enjoy it. I will have supplies listed down below for you!

I chose to use the Sassy Unicorn Sparkle Blend Mix for my cards. I made an Infinity Shaker card for this one. I stamped my cute unicorn images from Mama Elephant A Unicorn’s Dream Stamp Set that I stamped with black ink. I colored the images in with my Copic Markers. I used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut all my images out.

I used the In The Clouds Cover Plate die that I cut out with pattern paper and and white cardstock. I ink blended the inlay die-cut with blue ink and stamped a sentiment onto it. I then used some old clear packaging to make my shaker cover. I taped the ends with double sided tape and added my Sassy Unicorn Shaker Sparkle Blends. I then secured the top with double sided tape before adding it to my A2 card base.

On this card I used the same kind of pattern paper and white cardstock with the In the Clouds Cover Plate. I stamped my sentiment onto the die-cut. I used foam tape and packaging acetate to make this shaker card. I added my Sassy Unicorn Sparkle Blends before securing my shaker onto my A2 card base. I then glued my rainbow and added my unicorn with foam tape.

Lastly, I added some sequins onto my panel and some Lawn Fawn Sparkle Glaze to the clouds. I hope you like my shaker cards. Boy did I have fun these last 2 months Guest Designing for Doodles Paper Playground. Visit their shop here you won’t be disappointed. Thank you to Amber and the Team for having me.

I placed the mask over to ink blended any white spaces. I cut my panel smaller than a A2 size.

I stamped the surfboards from the New Another Day in Paradise and colored them in with my colored pencils. I cut them out with the coordinating Sweet Cuts. I stamped my sentiment also from the same set and added some clouds from the Vacation Stamp Set. I love the clouds and sweet cuts so much. I glued my surfboards and then popped them up with foam tape. I used a E23 copic marker for dots on my sand for interest. I added a A2 kraft cardstock to my A2 card base and added my panel. Lastly, I added some clear glaze drops. I hope you like my card. Happy 10th Anniversary to Paper Sweeties. Leave a comment on the Paper Sweeties Blog to win.

Meow Cat

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well. I have some cards I made using the New Meow Cat stencil that were super easy to make using A Colorful Life Designs August 2022 Release. I will have supplies and a coupon code down below for you!

I chose to do two cards just with different ink colors. On this card, I used Lunch Bag cardstock from Brutus Monroe with Bubblegum ink. I ink blended it with my large blending brush. When I was done ink blending I used a retired stitched rectangle die set from My Creative Time to cut it out. I then used the largest scalloped rectangle die to cut out pink cardstock to layer my stenciled background. I then glued everything to a A2 card base. I flicked some Metallic paint in Silver and Unicorn from LH Colors with my paint brush onto my panel and added some Soft Pink liquid drops to finish my card.

On this card I did the same except I used Seafoam ink and added some Sky blue liquid drops to match this panel. I felt I didn’t need a sentiment and I could always stamp inside when ready to gift.

Do you love Neapolitan Ice Cream? I do. Ever since I was a little girl. I used Sparkle Blends Neapolitan for my card and I knew I would have to do a traditional Ice Cream card. I first used a embossing folder stamp and die set from Sizzix with white cardstock for my background panel. I cut it to be A2 size before running it through my Spellbinders Platinum machine. I began cutting out my scoops, cherry, and cone from My Creative Time Retired Set You Make Life Sweet Stamp and Die Set. It is a older set from my stash. I used colored cardstock from my stash.

I ink blended the chocolate pieces to look darker with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink and the Cherry with Pinkfresh Studio Berrylicious ink. I glued my scoops to my cone and added it to my panel with foam tape. On pink cardstock, I stamped my sentiment from the same set by My Creative Time. I cut it into a fish tail banner and added it to my panel with foam tape. I ink blended pieces of my panel, Ice Cream Cone, and sentiment with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink and my blending tool. I love the Neapolitan Sparkle Blends so much I placed a bunch on my card. My panel was added to a A2 card base. I hope you like it. It was so much fun to make and I need one of these treats to enjoy.

A Colorful Life Designs August 2022 Release

Hello. Happy August. I hope you are doing well. I’m super excited for the New Release today. 16 NEW Designs. So much fun! I have a few cards to share using the New Lover Boy Stencil and Furry Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs August 2022 Release. I will have supplies, a video, and a coupon down below for you!

Here is the first card I made. I think these dogs are so cute from the New Lover Boy Stencil. I ink blended using Gina K Designs Honey Mustard ink on Hammermill cardstock. When I was done ink blending, I flickered some gold paint using Starry Colors from Gansai Tambi. I cut my cardstock to be A2 size. I added it to a A2 card base. I stamped my Taylored Expressions Woof sentiments onto kraft cardstock and cut them out with the coordinating die. I added 2 strips with foam strips to my card front. I added sequins to match, super easy.

On this card I ink blended the dogs with black ink on Hammermill cardstock. I just wanted to do a border of them for a different look. I chose to color their bows and hearts with Copic markers. I used the New Furry Stencil for my sentiment using black ink. I cut out my cardstock to be A2 size and added it to a A2 card base. I inked around the edges with my blending brush. I added some heart enamel stickers to finish this card.

I chose to make another card just because I love this stencil. I ink blended on Hammermill cardstock with Aspen, Espresso, and Sunshine ink. I alternated my inks to have all 3 shown. I love this color combo, not my typical combo. I flickered some metallic paint splatters using LHColors in Gold and Limeade over my panel for a fun look.

I cut my cardstock with a Taylored Expressions Die. It was bigger than an A2 panel so I placed my die over it to cut it to the right size. I glued my panel to a A2 card base. I then added a white heat embossed sentiment strip from Taylored Expressions Woof Stamp and added it with foam tape. I then placed some sequins from Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blends in Sunflower. That finishes my cards. I hope you like them.

I flickered some Metallic paint over my ink blended panels for fun. I would position my stencil so that I could easily make 2 Slimline cards with it.

Embossed Butterfly Cards and Matching Envelopes

Hello everyone! I have some cards and matching envelopes I made using Embossing Folders and Butterfly coordinating dies. I will have details and and supplies listed down below.

I played with Embossing Folders from Simon Say Stamp for my cards today. On, this card I used Magnolia Branches and the Graceful Butterfly Set. I love how the Graceful Butterfly Set comes with cutting dies. I would cut out my butterfly pieces with white cardstock. I would Spray them with a little bit of water and run them with the Graceful Butterfly embossing folder through my die cutting machine. I used my Simon Says Stamp Detail brushes with Catherine Pooler Chiffon ink, Catherine Pooler Lemon Whip, Twilight Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated ink, and Mint from Pinkfresh Studio. I ran my white cardstock A2 size through my diecutting machine with the Magnolia Branches Embossing folder. I ink blended it to match my butterflies.

I added my panel to a A2 card base and added a butterfly with foam tape and glued the one with liquid glue. I added a silver foil black sentiment strip from my stash with a foam strip. Lastly, I added clear sequins and embossed a envelope to match.

On this card I used the Geometric Lattice Embossing Folder with the Graceful Butterfly Set. I did the same thing cut the butterflies first, spray them with water, and emboss them with the Graceful Butterfly set. I used inks Bubblegum and Morning from Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated inks. I also used some Catherine Pooler Grape Crush. I used my detailed brushes to get in the Nooks and Crannies. I ran my white cardstock A2 size through my embossing folder-Geometric Lattice as well as a envelope.

I added my butterflies with liquid glue and my foiled sentiment strips with foam tape. I added clear sequins and added my panel to a A2 card base.

On this card I used the Magnolia Branches again with the Graceful Butterfly Set. After running my butterflies through the embossing folder I ink blended lightly with Bubblegum and Morning ink and Pinkfresh Studio Mint ink for the leaves. I ink blended my embossed matching panel to match. I thought this one looked good with a white embossed envelope. I added a foiled sentiment on glossy white cardstock sentiment with foam strips onto my panel. I molded my butterflies a little to have some more dimension before gluing them. I then added some clear sequins before adding it to a A2 card base.

On my last card I used my leftover ink blended butterflies. I glued them to a white Geometric Lattice A2 panel and added my gold foiled sentiment strip with a foam strip. I added my panel to a A2 card base and added clear sequins. I hope you like my card sets. Which one is your favorite? I ad fun making all of them.

As always I have so much fun making cards with stencils. The Possibilities are endless and this month I used my gel press for a lot of my projects for .

You’re The Best

Hello everyone! I hope your doing great. I have another card for My Guest Design at Doodles Paper Playground. I will have details down below for you!

I had to do another shaker card. A Lemon and Blueberries Shaker Card. So I chose this New Lemon Die that I purchased called Lemon Zest from Spellbinders. I used Circle dies from Waffle Flower Crafts for my Blueberries. My motivation came from a Cosmetic Bag that I had seen at Marshalls while shopping with my Crafty Friend Tina. I did my card from memory so I left a few things out like strawberries but that’s okay maybe next time I can recreate it better. I used Hammermill cardstock to ink blend my background pink like the Cosmetic Bag using Guava from Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated ink. I cut out my background with a stitched A2 rectangle. I ink blended the rest of my Hammermill cardstock with inks using Catherine Pooler Chiffon, Lawn Fawn Clover, Pinkfresh Studio Sunshine, Lawn Fawn Freshly Cut Grass, and Simon Says Stamp Twilight Pawsitively Saturated ink.

I ran the dies on the ink blended areas to retrieve all the die-cuts needed for this card.

I glued all my die-cuts together and glued my lemons and blueberries onto my pink ink blended A2 panel. I used a A2 clear card sleeve to make my shaker pouch. I used a tape runner to fold my sleeve tight around my card. I trimmed a little off the top and begin placing Lemonade Sparkle Blends into it. I placed a few blue and green sequins from Twilight Meadow Sparkle Blends to match my leaves and Blueberries. I love the clay pieces and the blends, they are just fabulous. I used my tape runner to secure my shaker pouch. I then added my shaker panel to a A2 card base. I added a gold foil strip sentiment from my stash and that finishes my card. I hope you like it.

Smile Breathe and go Slowly

Hello everyone!! I have a fun card for you today. I hope your having a great day. I used the Striped Hexagon Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs July 2022 Release. As always I will have supplies and a coupon code for you down below.

I first started out with some white cardstock, gel press, brayer, inks, and of course my Stencil. I used some yellow and black ink for my inks on my gel press. My process is to use my Misti and lay my gel press in it. I apply inks and use my brayer to glide it onto my gel press. I lay my stencil down while I glide my brayer in upwards and downwards strokes. I grab my cardstock and lift my stencil off and press my cardstock onto my gel press. I did the same process 2-3 times to get the look I was happy with. I cut out my panel with a Stitched A2 rectangle die.

I stamped these cut Bees from Honey Bee Stamps with black ink and colored them in with my Copic Markers. I cut them out with the coordinating dies. I applied them to my panel with foam tape. I used a pre-made Ephemera foiled sentiment pack that was free from Pinkfresh Studio. I also applied the sentiment with foam tape.

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well. I’m so excited to be Guest Designing this month and next month for Doodles Paper Playground. I love their Sparkle Blends. I will have supplies listed down below for you.

I wanted to make a shaker card because the Sparkle Blends are so much fun to work with. This one that I used is called I Love The 80’s. So fun. I’m an 80’s Baby Yay. I first used Hammermill cardstock and ink blended the Paint Splatter Background Stencil from Lawn Fawn using Catherine Pooler ink Pucker Up, Catherine Pooler ink Orange Twist, Lawn Fawn ink Freshly Cut Grass, Gina K Designs Electro Pop Neon Ink Blaring Blue, and Pinkfresh Studio ink Sunshine Chiffon. I cut out my panel with a A2 Stitched Rectangle die.

I cut out the Canvas and Easel and Art Supplies dies using white cardstock. I ink blended them to match. I used the large Paint Splatter die to make my shaker window with the Canvas Die-cut. I also used a sparkle stamp image from the Just Add Glitter stamp set using Pucker Up ink. I layered my shaker window with packaged Acetate and foam. Next, I placed my Sparkle Blend I Love the 80’s into my shaker and sealed it up using my Sparkle image background. I glued it to my easel. I glued everything to a A2 card base. I had this fox colored and ready in my stash from Butterfly Kisses Flip Flop Stamp and Die Set. I just popped up my critter and added a few Sparkle Blends sequins to my card. My sentiments were stamped with black and Pucker Up ink from the Just Add Glitter stamp. That finishes up my card, I hope you like it.

Sending Happy Thoughts!

Hello everyone! I hope you are feeling great today. I have a card using the Striped Balls Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs July 2022 Release. I will have supplies listed as well as a Coupon Code for you down below!

Isn’t this a fun stencil? I used my gel plate again for this one. I applied Rose Quartz and Laid Back Lilac paint from Dylusions onto my gel plate and laid my stencil down.

I was subtle so when it was dry I ink blended with Flirty Fuchsia ink from Catherine Pooler using my stencil and blending brush.

Next, I cut out my panel out with a A2 rectangle die and glued it to my A2 card base. I added a sentiment from a Simon Says Stamp Stamp and Die Set that I had premade already in my stash. It was applied with foam tape. I added some Ballet Slipper Rhinestones to decorate. I hope you like it. Use my code VonFan10 to save 10% off your purchase of stencils. Shop the Newest Release here.

Hello everyone! I have a card today using a New Stencil called Even Pairing Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs July 2022 Release. I will have supplies and a coupon code for you down below.

I love this New Even Pairing stencil. It is so neutral, so it will look great with anything you choose. I wanted to use it with foil. I placed my stencil over some A2 purple cardstock from my stash with Transfer Duo Paste and then let it dry over night. I then used Silver foil and ran it through my Spellbinders Platinum Machine.

I had this Pinkfresh Studio Celebrate Foiled Sentiment in my foil stash. I just layered it with another die-cut using the coordinating die and white cardstock. I also had a leaf die-cut in my stash from Simon Says Stamp that I had used with Mica Distress Spray in Brushed Pewter. I glued everything to a A2 card base using liquid glue. Lastly, I added some Silver Metallic Matte Pearls from Pinkfresh Studio. I hope you like my card for today. It was a lot of fun.

Geo Framework Stencil and a Gel Press

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well. I have some cards using the New Geo Framework Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs July 2022 Release and my Gel Press. I will have supplies and a coupon code down below for you.

On this card I started out placing my 5×7 Gel Press in in my Misti. I placed some Dylusions Paints in colors Rose Quartz and Island Parrot. I placed small drops and used my Brayer up and down before placing my stencil onto my paint. I used my brayer again and lifted my stencil to place my white cardstock over it. I got this cool print. I then ink blended over this print when dried with Catherine Pooler Lime Rickey dye ink with a Blending brush. I cut out my panel with a A2 Rectangle die. I added a premade gold foiled sentiment and some sequins. My panel was then added to a A2 card base.

On this card, I did the same fun gel press process. This time I used Rose Quartz with Desert Sand Dylusions Paint. I then ink blended in certain areas with Catherine Pooler’s Something Borrowed dye ink. I love the way this print turned out too. I cut it out with the same rectangle die and added a sentiment from the same foiled premade pack. I added some Gold Matte Metallic Pearls and added my panel to a A2 card base. I hope you like them. They were so much fun to make. Use my code VonFan10 to save 10% off your purchase of stencils. Check out the New Release here.

Summer Cards using Waffle Flower Crafts Tropical Card Kit

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing great today. I am so happy to be back crafting. We visited family and that was nice and it can be tiring. I was away from my craft room so I was eager to get back. I have some Summer Cards using a Beautiful Kit from Waffle Flower Crafts called the Tropical Kit by Galine Filippenko. I was so lucky to have won this kit. I will have supplies listed down below for you!

I love crafts that involve Summer and Tropical Themes.

This is the first card I made. I first cut out all the pieces to put my cute birds together. I then cut out some Tropical Leaves and flowers. This kit comes with plain, gold glitter, and pattern paper. The Gray cardstock paper is from my stash.

I stamped and Heat embossed my sentiment from the stamp set included with Versafine Black Onynx ink and Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder on gray cardstock. I put my card together onto a A2 card base. I embellished with some Stardust Enamel Dots from my stash.

I decided to make a shaker card since this kit comes with Satin Rainbow Confetti embellishments. I used a Circle die set from Waffle Flower Crafts to cut out a circle in my green cardstock. I did the same with my green foam. I used some packaging acetate for my window. This kit does come with circle shaker covers and I will have to use them next time. I used my powder tool and Adhesive Permanent tape Runner to put my shaker together. I layered it on another pattern paper from the kit.
