Hey everyone! It is July 1st!! Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians! That also means it is time for a new challenge over at The Greeting Farm, this month the challenge is all Shaker Cards! Just think you can make one of these super fun shakers and win $50 store credit!
I had so much fun making my little card, I created this little aquarium feeling card, with a mermaid in it, using the Little Mermaid Stamp Set, and the coordinating dies. I culoured some water behind here and attempted to make the rest of the card front look like metal!

Hey everyone! Today I have a sweet little shaker card, I promised myself I would eventually use my fuse tool.
I really like how flat the shaker cards lay when you make them with the fuse tool, although they do not shake as much as the ones made the old way with foam tape and acetate the thinner profile is worth it.

Hey everyone! It has been a while, I am hopefully going to be here and be blogging more frequently. But today I am here with a fun card!!!
The back round of this card was made with Hero Arts Gold embossing powder, and the flowers from the SSS Life is a Journey stamp set, I then took a piece of card stock slightly larger and covered the edge of it in the gold embossing powder as well and layered it in behind.
The shaker card was made using Doodle Bug Peacock Vellum, the large star inside is from Heidi Swapp’s Colour Magic star chipboard pieces (I don’t know if these are still available anywhere, I then filled the rest of the shaker card with Studio Calico tiny star wood veneers, and studio calico sequins in aqua and pink.
To close the shaker I put a piece of acetate on tip and wrapped washi around to hide the foam tape, the washi tape is from an older My Minds Eye line.
The sentiment is from SSS Birthday Messages stamp set, again embossed using the Hero Arts Gold embossing powder. I, then, cut a slit on either side of the shaker element and fed a piece of May Arts Sheer ruffle edge ribbon in turquoise and tied it in a bow.
Here it is folks! My first project for the Scrapadabadoo Design Team. I got to play with the Indigoblu Kit in a Box, the gilding this creates is simply stunning and I am in love. Did you take notice that I made a shaker card with a vellum front and filled it with the mega flakes? I think it is so awesome that you can see them through, they move around its awesome. The shaker part of the card is 2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″, I used foam squares around the outside that are 1/4″ wide then created a mask for the center out of scrap paper 2″ x 3 1/4″, so that I could use flitterglue around it and on the sides of the foam and use the mega flakes on that as well. The butterfly was covered in Flitterglu then I used the Mega Flakes on it as well. I then wrapped and tied some Twine, similar to the Burlap String around the shaker element and tied a pretty bow. The wood veneer saying yay is from my stash, I am not sure if you can use any fun little element here. Below it I stamped my sentiment on a banner I had die cut ages ago, you could easily cut a strip of paper, cut a V in each end and fold it to create a similar look. I then adheared the whole shaker onto a piece of scrap striped patterened paper, it looked like the cardbase needed something more to it so I took some Distress ink in Dried Marigold, and Worn Lipstick. Mixed those together and added a bunch of water and just did a light scribble of it with a brush right on the card base. Thanks for stopping by Hugz Jess
Hey everyone! Happy monday! I made a fun little shaker card here, and I must say that shaker cards have been really popular, which makes sense considering how popular sequins have become.
The images (actually, all the stamps used) are from Lawn Fawn’s Critter Ever After stamp set and I coloured them with my Copic markers. I created my shaker card using a piece of Canson 140lbs Watercolour paper that I coloured using my Peerless watercolours that I recently recieved (they are heavenly but I will leave that for another post). then adheared the castle the 3 yellow stars and stamped some small stars right on the watercolour paper, then put foam sqares around the outside, filled with sequins from Neat and Tangled and 3 buttons, and stuck of piece of acetate cut to the same size on the top (I believe the acetate is from spellbinders packaging). Then wrapped some pink Washi Tape around the outside to hide the ugliness that is the foam squares.
So this got adhered to some cloud paper (its an Amy Tan design but I am not sure what collection) that was cut down from 12×12, and the grey woodgrain paper I believe is from Simple Stories DIY Boutique paper pad in 6×6.
