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!

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. ;)


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.


And one more peek… totally loving how this turned out!
