Posts Tagged ‘shaker card’

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.

Welcome to Day 12 of Tracey McNeely‘s 25 Days of Christmas Tags! I’m here representing Serendipity Stamps w/  an all die cut tag using their beautiful Ornament die along w/ some gorgeous snowflakes from their Snowflake Reverse die. This is also for Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge (FS510). A big congrats to Jen! I chose THIS to case. I kept the gold & white w/ the gold glitter, but I made a Christmas tag instead of an Anniversary card & I used different papers & different dies.

For my shiny tag, I die cut a white stitched rectangle then die cut the ornament in the center. Another ornament was die cut out of the gold mirror board & I fit into the opening and carefully attached it from the back side. Using the fuse tool, I made a little shaker pouch out of a cellophane bag & filled it w/ sequins & gold micro beads. A foam sheet was attached behind the ornament panel before the shaker pouch was added & the whole thing was attached to first a piece of gold glitter card stock, then to a larger piece of die cut patterned paper. The tag topper was made w/ a tag topper die but it was about half this size so I used my resizing technique to make it twice as big & added a strip of gold glitter c/s. All the little gold snowflakes were added along w/ the die cut Merry.
