Birthday Balloons Fuse Tool Shaker

Hello friends! Today I have a fun fuse tool shaker card to share with you! This card features some stamps from the Party Like a Panda stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.


To begin I took a piece of Canson watercolor paper and blended across is with a few different colors of Distress Oxide inks. The colors I used are Tumbled Glass, Seedless Preserves, Worn Lipstick, and Squeezed Lemonade.


I sprinkled clean water onto my Distress Oxide background and soaked it up with a paper towel. This lifts up some spots of ink across the panel. Next I took Brutus Monroe Aqua Pigment in the color Pearl and splatted some drops of that onto the panel. To finish up the background I added even more splatters with some of the Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide ink.


I took the Party Like a Panda set and picked out the balloon sentiment. I stamped that onto vellum with Versamark ink and embossed it with Alabaster embossing powder. Next I took the Birthday sentiment and stamped it onto some white cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I fussy cut both of those sentiments out with scissors. For the last sentiment I picked out one of the smaller one, embossed it in white on black cardstock, and cut it into a strip.


Using my Fuse Tool I turned my background panel into a shaker pocket. I filled that pocket with some large clear glitter and clear micropearls. Once it was closed up I adhered it to an A2 size card base with my ATG gun. I then glued all of the sentiments to the front with a combination of both liquid adhesive and foam tape.


For the finishing touches on this card I first went over the balloon letters with Copic markers to give them some color. I then went over them with Nuvo Crystal Glaze to give them dimension. Using my Wink of Stella glitter brush I added sparkle to the other two sentiments. Finally I added some sequins around the sentiments white I then filled with the Crystal Glaze.
