After making some shaker cards for the first time for Virginia’s View Shaker Challenge, I keep coming up with shaker card ideas. 🙂 They are so much fun!!

There’s lots going on in this little shaker, homemade embossing paste pink hearts (the recipe is in this post), sequins & beads and a little glossy accents glazed donut with sprinkles. I used a SU triple flower punch for the pink frosting, along a small circle punch.

Despite my bottle of Glossy Accents exPLODing all over me and my table, I had a lot of fun making this card. I’m playing this card at Curtain Call’s Donut Delight Challenge and SSS’s Wednesay Challenge: Simon Says Add A Little Texture.

Build a Bouquet

Here, I have a fun shaker card to share with you.

I used PTI’s Botanical Blocks II lilac stamp as the focal point in the bouquet. I inked up only part of the image and then drew in some finishing touches around the edge. I used some Stamping’ Up stamps to add to the bouquet.

I used some double sided foam tape, cellophane wrap and a variety of sequins and small punched flowers to make this into a shaker. I’m having fun making shaker cards!

I’m playing this card at PTI’s 8th Anniversary, Day 4: Build a Bouquet Challenge and Viginia’s View Challenge#12: Shaker Cards.

#12 Shaker Cards

Shaker 2!

Hi! I’m excited to be playing along over at Virginia View Challenge #12 is “Shaker Cards”.

And here it is:

I made a teeny-tiny sentiment shaker! It was a lot of fun to make. I stamped the PTI sentiment on vellum with VersaMark, applied black embossing powder, and heat embossed. Then I built the shaker box with clear cardstock, glitter, flower sequins, Tombow liquid glue, and Kool Tak Clear Adhesive Foam.

The card above is the companion to my first shaker card, see below and here. I used the background for the card above and added a new dark pink outline die cut to the inked background.

I did some ink blending and then die cut the paper with my PTI Peony Cover Plate Die. The secret to keeping this baby together is carefully adhering a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ inch piece of sticky label to the back of the image after die cutting, but before removing it from the cover plate die.

By pressing down firmly, you should be able to pick up all of the itsy-bitsy pieces. Flip the die over carefully, remove the image in its entirety. Check to see if any of the pieces did not adhere well enough, make any needed adjustments, gently press down on any loose pieces. Then, carefully peel back the outline.

I think that this is a fun card. The tiny shaker sentiment made me laugh! I added some glitter to the card front and rubbed it into the cuts where some of the white sticky label were showing through.

Hi! I’m excited to be playing along over at Virginia View Challenge #12 is “Shaker Cards”.

Here’s my first shaker:

Notice the butterfly landing on the Peony?

I did some ink blending and then die cut the paper with my PTI Peony Cover Plate Die. The secret to keeping this baby together is carefully adhering a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ inch piece of sticky label to the back of the image after die cutting, but before removing it from the cover plate die. I used the outline for the card above and the background for another shaker card.

Check to see if any of the pieces did not adhere well, make any needed adjustments, gently press down on any loose pieces. Then, carefully peel back the outline. Two cards await your creativity!

I cut out 3 different pinks to add dimension and interest to the peony.

If you follow along at Nicole Heady’s blog, you might have noticed that this card was inspired by this week’s MIM #200: Layering Cover Plate Die Cuts. I’ll be linking up a different card over there though!

I think that this is a fun card. Very different than anything else I’ve done. I’m pretty happy with the end product.

Thanks for stopping by!
