Kenichi is SHAKIN' things up!!

LinkWelcome back!!! Day 2 of DT previews for Sister Stamps Release #7!! Hope you are loving what everyone is sharing with you... Jenny's cute slider card and Debi's awesome card scene! Told you these girls ROCK! I bet a lot of you are pinching yourself waiting for RELEASE day to come!! hehehehe.... it will, very soon!

Today Kenichi decided to take over my blog and shake things up a bit... AND he has a playful little friend by his side...
this is a type of card i haven't done in a loooooong while!! a SHAKER card!! again, with Kenichi and his little furry friend, i wanted something a little interactive to portray them having some ball chasing fun.... aren't they so sweet together?!

i'd be lying if i said working with these cuties were easy.... actually boy images are hard to work with because you have to refrain from using all those cutesy, pretty, girls embellies and papers... it would have been easy to grab some washi paper and create a card but i want to show you that these cuties can be paired with many different papers... i used papers from DCWV The Pets Stack... and i was happy to find some that really worked with Kenichi.... micro beads are from a MS set i had lying around... finally got to use them! hehehe... and i used a MS border/embossing punch... sentiment is from TGF's OA Just for you set...

just wanted to share that it is a shaker card... LOL... this is another fave interactive card my son loves... he walks around the craft room shaking it and laughs up a storm... melts my heart to see him enjoying the creations as much as i had fun making them... =)

So far, what image is your FAVE from this release?!? Go and visit Jenny and Debi too for more ideas and inspirations on these FUN FUN FUN release!!

come back tomorrow for yet ANOTHER (and last) preview!! what's more, these boys will be available for you to grab up and get creative with tomorrow too!! ain't that fabulous?!? see you then!!!
