I started my card by stamping a ton of the balloons from the Party Balloons stamp set onto some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with Distress Oxide ink. The colors I used are Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, Wild Honey, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, and Tumbled Glass. I cut the balloons out using the coordinating die set.

I created a frame out of white cardstock using a rectangle die and glued a piece of acetate to the back of it. I then glued a row of balloons along the top edge of the frame. Next I took an A2 size panel of white cardstock and blended some clouds on it using a cloud stencil and a light gray ink. I glued another row of balloons on that panel.

I used some doubled up foam tape on the edges of my frame to create a shaker are and filled it up with clear sequins and micro pearls. I closed up the shaker with the cloud panel. For the sentiment I used the Happy Birthday die set from Pink and Main. I also embossed a few smaller sentiments from the Birthday Script stamp set and popped them up on the card.

For the finishing touches on the card I used my Wink of Stella glitter brush on the sentiment strips and I also added a few sequins on the front of the shaker.

Blossoming Cherry Tree Shaker Card | Simon Says Stamp

Today I am using one of the new stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp’s Fresh Bloom release!

1.jpg

First I stamped the tree from the Blossoming stamp set onto some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with Gina K Amalgam ink. I then colored in the image with Copics and fussy cut it out with scissors.

2.jpg

I created a background panel by blending some Distress Oxide inks onto some Bristol Smooth paper. I blended the colors Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick. I then used my fuse tool to turn the background into a shaker pocket. I used large clear glitter and clear micro pearls from my shaker bits.

4.JPG

I adhered the shaker pocket onto a card base and then glued the tree onto the pocket. For my sentiment I embossed one of the stamps with white embossing powder onto Simon Says Stamp Slate cardstock. I popped the sentiment strip onto the card with foam tape.

3.JPG

For the finishing touched on the card I first randomly added dabs of Glossy Accents to the flowers on the tree and sprinkle Unicorn Dust glitter onto them. I then used a white gel pen to add highlights and details to the tree. Finally I went over the sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter.

Easy Watercolor Background Shaker Cards | Brutus Monroe

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing a couple of really fun birthday shaker cards for the Brutus Monroe blog hop!

1.jpg

I started out by creating some colorful watercolor backgrounds using Aqua Pigment paints. I used a technique to make these backgrounds that is so super easy to do, I highly recommend checking out the video so that you can see how it is done!

2.jpg

Once the background were dry I used a large circle die to cut them into two circles. I then took the same die as well as a slightly smaller circle die to make two frames out of white cardstock. I also cut two circles out of some acetate. I glued the acetate circles to the frames to create my shaker windows.

3.JPG

I added some doubled up foam tape around the frame to create my shaker area. I then filled the shaker with Pastel Paradise sequins from Lucy’s Cards as well as clear Micro Pearls from Brutus Monroe. I closed the shakers up with the watercolor backgrounds.

4.JPG

I created two 5 x 5 card bases and glued some Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock to the front. I then glued my shaker circles to the middle of both of the cards.

5.jpg

For the sentiments I used a stamp from the Super Sentimental stamp set from Brutus Monroe and embossed them with Alabaster embossing powder on some black cardstock. I popped the sentiments up onto the centers of both cards and went over them with Wink of Stella glitter.

Rainbows and Unicorns Shaker | My Favorite Things

Hello my crafty friends! Today I am sharing a fuse tool shaker card using some products from My Favorite Things.

1.jpg

I used Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink and the cloud stencil from My Favorite Things to create a cloudy background panel. I then closed that panel up into a shaker pocket with my fuse tool, adding in some sequins from Lucy’s Cards.

3.JPG

I stamped some of the images from the Rainbows and Unicorns stamp set and colored them in with Copics. I also stamped a sentiment from that set onto Cotton Candy cardstock from Simon Says Stamp and embossed it with Alabaster white embossing powder.

2.jpg

I adhered the shaker pocket to an A2 card base with my ATG gun. I then glued the sentiment strip and the rainbow image along the bottom of the card. I die cut some clouds out of vellum and placed them above the sentiment. I glued the unicorn down over the clouds and onto the card.

4.JPG

To finish up this card I added some highlights to the images with a white gel pen. I then went over all of the clouds with my Wink of Stella glitter brush.

Sweet Carousel Shaker Card | Pink & Main

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a really fun and sparkly shaker card.

1.jpg

I stamped the adorable unicorn from the Sweet Carousel stamp set by Pink & Main onto Bristol Smooth paper and then colored it in with Arteza watercolor markers. I used the coordinating die to cut the unicorn out using my Big Shot.

3.JPG

Next I took an A2 size panel of white cardstock and cut a square out of it. I glued a piece of acetate to the back to make a window. Using foam tape I went around that window and then filled the space with large clear glitter. I closed up the shaker with a piece of light pink cardstock.

2.jpg

I took the unicorn that I colored in a glued it in the middle of the shaker window. I then glued the whole panel to an A2 size card base.

4.JPG

For the sentiment I picked out a stamp from the Sweet Carousel stamp set and stamped it onto dark gray cardstock with embossing ink. I embossed it with white embossing powder and then popped it up in my card.
