Inspired by May Park

Today I’m excited to share a shaker card with you.

IMG_1566I have been having a lot of fun making shaker cards recently!
I have also recently been admiring the work of May Park and came across this card of hers this morning. DSC_5397Isn’t it beautiful?

Here is one more of May’s lovely creations.


Back to my card……


I sponged the background with pink for the flower and green for the stem. On another piece of card stock, I then sponged a yellow center, drew in some details with a black marker and punched out the flower’s middle. Next I added 2 layers of foam tape to create two separate shaker sections. Then I added green beads to the stem and pink beads and flower sequins to the flower section.

IMG_1546The leaves, I stamped, fussy cut and popped up with foam. They are from PTI’s Pretty Petals stamp set. I added some vellum SU punched butterflies to the sentiment strip. The sentiment is from PTI’s A Cheerful Heart Stamp Set, which I absolutely love.

I’m going to play this over at Less is More’s Week 212 Wings Challenge, at the Butterfly Challenge’s #24 Butterflies + R is for Ribbon and at SSS’s Monday Challenge: No Rules.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. This is simply gorgeous and clever! I love the contrast of vibrant colors on the florals and then the airy, softness and muted tones of the vellum butterflies, a perfect balance. Always such a treat to stop by your blog and see your lovely creations! Oh and a bit belated but congratulations on the year of stamps, wow!! If you ever get a stamp set you think needs another home, I’d absolutely be willing to make the sacrifice and give it a nice, safe home. Hehe 🙂
