Have a ball shaker card

Hi again!!! I've been trying to post this card for several days now and finally have been able to do it! I've been holding back on updating my Mac because the latest update no longer uses iPhoto. And I have been using it all these years to edit my photos. Anyways, I broke down and updated my computer last week and then I was having issues getting my photos so I could post on blogger. Ugh! It worked today so now I can do some posts. 
Here is a shaker card that I made using Lawn Fawn's "sweet smiles" stamp set. I didn't even get to use the matching dies but hopefully will make another card to use the dies. This card was a 2 step process. I stamped the gumball machine twice so that I could make the shaker card. One for the inside of the gumball machine and the other for the card itself. I also cut out a bunch of gumballs to use for the shaker part.
I remember having one of these when I was growing up. And after you ate the gumballs, you use the machine as a piggy bank.
Thanks for coming back to read my posts! Hope you're having a great weekend!!!

Whew! The days have been flying by and it's already half the year. I thought I'd share some cards that I made recently. Lately I've been spending more time on Facebook and Instagram and neglecting this blog. 
The first 2 cards were made for our stamp club swap that we did the beginning of June. Our theme was to use the word "congratulations". I decided to make a simple card that could be used for either graduation or a baby. I used a Hero Arts stamp set called "playful animals" and "congrats" clear set. Patterned paper is Doodlebug Designs. And the cat is really glittery. I used wink of stella clear over the cat. 

The next card is a new stamp set from Lawn Fawn. It is called "fintastic friends". It's such a cute set! And I had to get the stitched borders die set. I love all the different stitching dies that are in the set.
Today I finally finished this good luck card. I was struggling all week trying to finish it. I just could not get it right. You should see how much cardstock I wasted. It's all in my rubbish can. The stamp set is from Lawn Fawn called "my lucky charm". If you click on the picture, you will see the splatters of gold shimmer spritz in the background.
If you've been checking back to see if I posted anything, sorry it's been awhile. Now that I have a real full-time job, I don't have as much time to spend making cards. If you're on Facebook, please friend me or follow me on Instagram @ccmiyashiro.
Have a great weekend!!!
