My first project I want to share with you is just adorable and I give full credit to Debby Case Donovan for the inspiration for this card . Debby shared a card on our demonstrator Facebook page and was kind enough to share how she created it .  If you'd like to see some of Debby's creations she has a Facebook page Bee happy Cards and Crafts .That is one of the things I love about being a Stampin ' Up ! Demonstrator ,our stamping sisters are there to help day and night as this group is world wide !
Okay so now for my card 

Okay so now for my card ! I have used the adorable mermaid from the set called Magical Day . These cute images also have mactching framelits ! How cool is that ! I began by carefully gold heat embossing the image onto my window sheet . I did this on low heat and made sure the heat gun was hot before turning it onto my stamped image . Then I coloured directly onto the  BACK of the design using my Stampin "Blends ! I created my shaker and filled it with our new gold  flakes , some irridescent sequins and some left over silicon beads from a previous project which by a happy accident matched my project ! These are easy to colour with our reinkers - just pop in a used embellishment container shake  and allow drying time before using . For my sentiment I have used the new framelits from the SAB catalogue  , Easy peasy ! Then I added some of our gold ribbon !

Now I was in love with these cards now so there was no stopping me ! Next up was this gold embossed blue rose  in a shaker card as well . I have embellished this one using the new Painted Love gold stickers . Wouldn't it be awesome if we could grow a blue rose such as this ! There's something about a blue rose that makes me happy .

I would also like to share this card very simply created , if a little time consuming but if you love to colour this DSP was made for you ! I have used the framelits again on this card and layered my Wink Of Stella black dies onto a Soft Sky die to make it pop . A pretty bow finishes this card off !
