Posts Tagged ‘shaker card’

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge this week, so a big Congrats to Susan, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a bunch of adorable gnome cards in her gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the gnome & shaker elements, but used different images & dies, different colors & moved my greeting to the inside of the shaker window.

For my card, I colored & die cut the cute gnome (yay!there are now matching dies!), then I die cut the white bg & also cut the circle into it. I stacked 2 of these fronts together to give it some depth for the shaker behind it. Then I used 2 sizes of stitched circle dies to make the frame around the opening.

A couple of stitched snow hills were added at the bottom w/ a line of stickles for a little sparkle. The shaker pouch is actually a clear bag that something came in & I used my fuse tool to seal it all around before attaching it under the top layers. The circular greeting was stamped directly onto the card front & I used my Misti to stamp it in sections w/ different colored ink &/or markers.

Here are the Copics I used for the gnome.

For the Inspiration Challenge we’re headed across the pond to a lovely site. I chose THIS for my inspiration.

My card today took way longer that I planned on spending but that’s how it goes sometimes. I wanted a twig wreath w/ stars on it but I wanted them to be a silver/gold mix & look a little rustic. The stars were pretty easy. I die cut them then covered them w/ a mix of silver ink on the inside & gold ink around the edges then sprinkled on 2 different embossing powders. One is a gilded gold (mostly clear w/ gold flecks) & the other was a stardust powder (mostly clear w/ little sparkles & a hint of silver). I did the same for the grosgrain ribbon die & bow die cut. On the wreath, I die cut it out of brown then used the same gold ep just in places here & there. Then part that took too long happened because I thought w/ the open area in the center, why not make it a shaker? But the sequins looked too bright & shiny. So I did the embossing again on a piece of ivory & die cut the sequins using a sequin die. Big trouble! Most the embossing flaked right off. So….I had piece sticker paper w/ most of the stickers gone & just the borders left. I peeled it off & stuck my sequins to the sticky side & embossed them again. That worked. I should have thought of that first! Then I put it all together & stamped half of the greeting on the front w/ Versa Clair nocturne & sprinkle the gilded gold powder on it & embossed it. You can see it in the close up but head on, it just looks black.

Here’s the inside.

Today’s Free for All Challenge (F4A373) on Splitcoast is to have something w/ wheels. I used a cute little golf cart & made a shaker card with it.

To make my shaker, I die cut the white panel, put into my Misti, stamped the Golf Cart w/ Memento, colored w/ Copics, then over stamped w/ Versafine. I also did an extra of just the area behind the shaker. Then I used a craft knife to cut out that area on the top version. The shaker pouch is just part of a clear envelope..the kind embellishments or stickers come in. I put some sequins in it then closed it up around any open edges. I like using these clear envelopes because they don’t add a lot of bulk & are still mailable. I did add some foam tape around edges of the top panel to give the shaker just a bit of room.

Here’s a little tip for you..see the brown sequins? They were actually gold..I colored them w/ a dk brown Copic (a brown Sharpie also works). Yep. It works! I added a little pennant for the greeting since it wouldn’t fit anywhere else. The green bg was stamped w/ the green ink & the Everything Golf Bg image.

Here are the Copics I used.
