Heart Filled Shaker Card | Brutus Monroe Blog Hop

Hey everyone! Today Brutus Monroe is having a blog hop all about our favorite techniques. Some of my favorite techniques involve using stencils, ink blending, and shakers so I created a card incorporating all of those things.


I started this card with a piece of Bristol Smooth paper. I blended lightly onto that with some Distress Oxide inks. I used the colors Wilted Violet, Abandoned Coral, and Worn Lipstick. I then took this months stencil from Brutus Monroe’s Stencil of the Month club and taped it down over that paper. I used the same colors of Distress Oxide ink over the stencil, darkening up those areas.


Next I used a die to cut a circle out of a panel of Neenah Solar White. I glued a piece of acetate over that cut out to make my shaker window. I added a mixture of sequins to the blended panel and popped up the shaker window over that with foam tape.


Next I took a piece of white glitter paper and punched a heart from it. I glued that to the middle of my shaker window. For the sentiment I stamped and embossed a stamp from the Love Bug stamp set with Alabaster embossing powder. I popped the sentiment strip up over the heart with foam tape.


To finish up the card I took some of the coral colored sequins from the Party Time sequin mix from Simon Says Stamp and I glued them around the sentiment.
