Merry Christmas Step Card Shaker

Hi everyone! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’m stoked to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! Seems I’m always in Christmas mode so I created a classic step card and added a snowflake shaker element which I filled with our Snowflake Sequins. I used clear gemstones from our Clear Jewel Bling and Clear Bling Strips to embellish the snowflakes on the front of the shaker.

I used a step card die set to cut the card base from CutCardStock Basis Navy cardstock along with layers from CutCardStock Curious Metallic White Silver cardstock and Hot Off The Press Snowfall 6×6 double-sided papers which I adhered to the card base. I built the shaker element with the Hot Off The Press Snowflakes Ornament Chipboard, using the Snowfall patterned paper for the inside and added several additional die cut rings (using two circle dies) cut from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock to make it just a tad deeper and then filled it with our Snowflake Sequins. I painted the outside rim and edge silver with a Posca Silver paint pen and colored the snowflakes on the front of the shaker with alcohol markers in blue tones, adding clear gemstones from our Clear Jewel Bling and Clear Bling Strips to embellish them. I adhered a tied snowflake ribbon to the top and added a sentiment stamped in blue ink on Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock from the Trinity Stamps A Sentiment For (Almost) Everything stamp set to complete the card.

Here are a few more shots of this awesome card.

And one more peek of the card folded flat for mailing. I sure do love how this turned out! Shakers are among my all-time favorites!

Happy Birthday, Gnomie!

Hey everybody! Happy Hump Day – I hope your week is going well! Can you believe another month is almost behind us?! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped in with a fun shaker card I created with the adorable Trinity Stamps Just For You stamp set along with the coordinating Just For You die set. Trinity Stamps has been celebrating their 3rd birthday all month long (and I took advantage of a great birthday sale and bought several stamp and die sets), so I thought it only fitting to share a birthday card! I sure do love me some gnomes and they have some of the cutest! ;)

I cut a square top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock, and cut a square aperture with a My Favorite Things Die-namics Wonky Stitched Square STAX die along with a frame from CutCardStock Basis Magenta 80# cardstock which I adhered to the outside of the aperture. Using the Trinity Stamps Just For You stamp set, I stamped the gnome on Solar White cardstock, colored her with alcohol markers, and cut her with the coordinating Just For You die set. I used my oh so lonely We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool to seal a large pouch filled with Melted Icicle Clear Twinkle Sequin Confetti Mix and adhered it to the back side of the front flap so it was visible through the aperture. I adhered a second piece of white cardstock with a square aperture on the back side of the front flap to conceal the edges of the pouch. I stamped and die cut the sentiment, and adhered it beneath the aperture. The finishing touch was the addition of some pink bling.

I embellished the inside flap with patterned paper, and adhered the stamped, colored and die cut gnome in the center so she was visible through the aperture.

And one more peek… such a super cute stamp set! Thanks, Trinity Stamps, for celebrating your 3rd birthday and for having such an awesome sale! ;)

If you’ve got it, haunt it!

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a great week! I’ve popped in today to share an awesome DT inspiration project for The Project Bin! I used the fun Haunt It stamp set for this fun shaker card which I paired with several awesome coordinating Halloween papers! So hard to believe it’s almost Halloween… then comes Thanksgiving… and then comes Christmas! This year has literally flown by!

I love shaker cards and this was so fun! I created a 5-1/2″ square top folding card base and adhered the layered front panel. I stamped the sentiment in the center of the round shaker element, built the layers and threw in some Halloween confetti, sequins and seed beads. The final touch was the addition of a black enamel dot in each corner.

I embellished the inside panel with paper and cardstock strips, stamped the sentiment in black ink and layered the panel on black cardstock.

And one more peek… can’t get over how fun this is! Love this stamp set!

It’s Your Birthday

8/1/20 Top 3 at Crafty Friends Challenge Blog!

Hello again, friends! I’m back with the other card I finished up yesterday afternoon for The Outlawz Challenges. It’s been a while since I’ve made a shaker card so I figured it was about time because they are SO fun! I’m entering this into the Festive Fridays Challenge where our sponsor this month is Fred She Said and the themes to choose from are Summer, Celebrations, Child Birthday or Christmas. I chose Child Birthday in hybrid form with digital and clear stamping.

I created the card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and rounded the lower right corner. I used bright and cheerful birthday papers from one of my favorite paper pads. I colored the image with alcohol markers and cut it with a circle die. I also cut the craft plastic with the same die and then cut a frame with that die and one slightly smaller. Using those two dies, I cut another ‘frame’ from teal craft foam to adhere beneath the pink cardstock frame. I love the colored foam to peek out from the edge of a frame or image! The shaker filler is a mixture of Pretty Pink Posh Marshmallow Seed Beads and Confetti.

I embellished the inside panel with a leftover strip of the striped paper and the pink cardstock used on the front, and stamped the sentiment in Ranger picked raspberry archival ink. I colored the tiny stars in the sentiment with Sakura Clear Star Gelly Roll pen.

And one more peek… so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it! I think our middle granddaughter will love this for her birthday in October! ;)

Happy Easter

Hi friends! Happy Saturday – hope you have a wonderful weekend planned! I have a fun project to share – an adorable Easter shaker card! I absolutely love shaker cards and it’s been a while since I created one so I figured it was about time. ;)

2020_0101008

The background panel is silver foil cardstock. I adhered a stitched rectangle die cut on top of that with a layered horizontal strip. I used a super cute Polkadoodles digital image along with a couple of my favorite stitched oval dies to cut the image and create the frame. I used acetate and shaker filler from my stash to complete the shaker.

I kept the inside fairly simple with a layered Polkadoodles digital sentiment cut with stitched rectangle dies.
