Spinning Unicorn Shaker Card + A Dreamy Distress Oxide Background

Hey guys! Today I am sharing another one of my spinner/shaker cards and this one is dreamy! This card features the Fairy-Tale Friends set from My Favorite Things.

I started with a large piece of Canson Watercolor paper taped to my work surface. I blended onto that with Distress Oxide inks in the colors Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, and Peacock Feathers. Next I took the Clouds stencil (also from MFTStamps) and I used Hero Arts Unicorn White pigment ink to blend some subtle clouds across the background. I splatted some clean water onto the background and lifted it with a paper towel. I then splatted some Pearl Aqua Pigment ink onto the panel. I then cut the background down to 6x6.

I stamped the unicorn and rainbow from the Fairy-Tale Friends stamp set onto Neenah white cardstock with Gina K Amalgam ink. I then colored them in with Copic markers and cut them out with the Scan N Cut. I quickly blended a second background to look like the first. I used the nested circle dies from Hero Arts to cut a ring from that background to be my shaker frame. Using that same die set I cut another ring out of a sturdy plastic, two rings out of white cardstock, and a circle out of plastic sheeting to be my shaker window. I glued the window circle to the frame with liquid adhesive.

I blended some colors onto one of the white cardstock rings to roughly match the background colors. I then glued that ring on top of the other white ring to make it a think piece. I glued that ring to the center of the background and then used the inside edge as a guide to place a circle of doubled up foam tape on the panel. I filled that circle with my shaker sequin, placed my plastic ring around the foam tape circle, and then closed up the shaker.

I glued the unicorn to the plastic ring and the rainbow to the center of the shaker window. Next I die cut a bunch of clouds out of vellum and white cardstock and some stars out of white glitter cardstock. I glued all of those to the plastic ring as well. I picked out a sentiment from the set and curved it on my Misti door to fit around the shaker frame. I then stamped it and embossed it with white embossing powder. It would have been easier to do this before assembling the shaker, but I didn’t think that far in advance on this one. For the finishing touches I added some dashed lines with a white gel pen and some glitter to my colored images with a glitter brush.

Ocean Scene Shaker Card | Distress Oxide Ink Blending

Hey y’all! Today I am making a card featuring another Distress Oxide ink blended ocean sunset! After doing the last one I just had to make another. This time I created a little scene and it is a shaker card! I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth paper and masked off the bottom with some painters tape. I blended the sky using Distress Oxide ink with the colors Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, Abandoned Coral, Tumbled Glass, and Salty Ocean. I then masked off the sky and blended the ocean with the same colors excluding the Squeezed Lemonade and adding in Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot.

I then painted in some soft cloud with clean water, dabbing up the ink with a paper towel. I used a Copic Multi-liner to add three little seagulls to the sky. I used the Nested Circle dies from Hero Arts to cut my blended panel into a large circle. I then cut a piece of Neenah Desert Storm, thick plastic, and a scrap piece of paper with the same die. I cut a wavy line across the Neenah Desert Storm circle to create the beach for the scene. I used some Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide ink to add some shading to that piece. I picked out a sentiment from the Beautiful Mermaids stamp set and emossed it on the plastic circle with white embossing powder.

Using the scrap paper circle as a base I started putting the shaker together. I glued the blended circle to it first. I then placed the plastic circle on top so I could line up the beach and glue it to the front of the shaker window. I created a frame using two circle dies out of Gina K Designs In The Navy cardstock. I glued the frame to the plastic circle and then added foam tape around the edge of the back. I added Coast sequins from Lucy’s Cards, large clear glitter, and clear Micro Pearls and closed up my shaker.

I stamped a mermaid from the Little Mermaiden Agenda stamp set from Mama Elephant onto some Neenah cardstock with Gina K Jet Black Amalgam ink. I colored it with Copics, cut it with the Scan N Cut, and then glued it to my scene. I made a 6x6 card base and glued a piece of patterned paper from the Bee’s Knees pack onto it with my ATG gun. I then adhered the shaker to the center of the card. I took three pieces of think twine and braided them together. I wrapped that around my shaker and glued it down with liquid adhesive.

I had a small amount of warping on the plastic from heat embossing the sentiment which caused a noticeable dip in the shaker frame. To fix that I filled the dip with foam tape and then adhered a second frame on top of the first. Using some gray Copic markers I added a drop shadow for the mermaid and some texture on the beach. I then took a white gel pen and added highlights to the mermaid and some dots to the beach so that it looks like it id glistening.

Sending Faraway Hugs | Vellum Framed Shaker

Hey everyone! I hope your day is going well today. I have a shaker card to share with you today using some products from Simon Says Stamp.

1.jpg

I took out the Rose Lattice Background stamp and stamped it with Versamark ink on Bristol Smooth paper and embossed it with Alabaster white embossing powder. I then blended over that with Distress Oxide inks in the colors Spun Sugar, Abandoned Coral, Festive Berries, and Aged Mahogany. I cut the background down to 4.25 x 4.25.

3.jpg

Next I picked out the circular frame from the Leafy Frames stamp set from Simon and I stamped it on vellum with Versamark. I embossed that with the Alabaster embossing powder and fussy cut around the outside of the frame. I found a circle die to fit the middle of the frame and cut that out.

I cut a ring out of Plum Hero Arts cardstock and glued it to my leafy circle frame. I then added acetate to the back and went around the circle with doubled up foam tape to make my shaker window. I filled shaker with large clear glitter and adhered it to the ink blended background.

For the first half of the sentiment I stamped the ‘sending’ on vellum and embossed it in white. For the second half I picked a smaller sentiment and stamped it with Dusty Rose on white cardstock. I popped up both sentiments with foam tape. To finish up that card I went over the smaller sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter and added some Moonshine sequins.

I stamped the fish from the set with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink and colored him in with Copic markers. I then cut him out with the coordinating die. I embossed a sentiment from the set on Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock with white embossing powder and cut it down to a strip.

7.jpg

I cut the fish bowl from the Fintastic die set out of Sea Glass cardstock. I cut the inner section of the bowl out of a panel of Neenah cardstock and glued a piece of acetate to the back. I then took the Sea Glass bowl and glued it to the front of the panel.
