Thanks for stopping by, crafty friends!
Today I have a cute little card to share with you. I love these little shaker images from the Spellbinders stamp and die set, SHAKE IT UP. This set is so cute! It has a few fun images and coordinating dies. I saw this set and thought that I needed to make a shaker card- obviously!
I first stamped out the images from the set using my MISTI. When using cling stamps in your MISTI, be sure to remove the foam piece from behind the grid paper. This allows more room to stamp down, since cling stamps already have their own foam attached to them.
I stamped the images on watercolor paper using my BRUTUS MONROE DETAIL INK. After I dried the ink with my heat tool, I colored the images with my ZIG CLEAN COLOR BRUSH MARKERS, giving the images a watercolor look to them.
Next, I cut a square out of my card base, creating a frame. I then also cut a piece of STERLING GLITTERSTOCK just the right size to nestle into the square. I love how this extra piece of glitterstock adds to the shaker window.
By the way, the shaker window that I used is actually the negative piece from some of the new BRUTUS MONROE DECO FOIL. After you foil a project and peel off the foil, you are usually left with the negative piece. I often feel like these pieces are too pretty to throw away, but can’t always think of what to do with them. Using them for a shaker window seemed to be the perfect solution for this problem!
Once I added foam adhesive to the back of my card, surrounding my shaker window, I filled the shaker area with NUVO DIAMOND SEQUINS. I love these sequins because although they are clear, they seem to pick up on any color they are paired with.
Lastly, I added my little images to the front using more foam adhesive, and then added a little glitterstock bow onto the left one.
If you watch my video, you will learn that this shaker card gave me lots of problems when creating it, but I prevailed and I love how it turned out!
