Love You Shaker

Hey everybody! Happy Tuesday – I hope you’re having a good week so far! It’s super chilly here and we’ve driven in the snow to doctor appointments and grocery shopping, but otherwise trying to stay indoors where it’s cozy! I’ve popped in today to share a quick Kat Scrappiness Creative Influencer inspiration project featuring the Love Lightbulb Shaker Card Kit! I totally love shakers and I used this one as the focal embellishment on the front of this ‘love you just because’ card. I used a gold and black color combo with Kat Scrappiness Gold Solid Confetti Mix (with a few black sequins from my stash) and the Friendship Greetings stamp set.

I cut a standard A2 side-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and layering panels from Darice black cardstock and Stampin’ Up Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum. I colored the shaker frame with a Kirarina Wink gold metallic marker and the ‘love’ element with a Copic Sketch black marker.

I used Kat Scrappiness Gold Solid Confetti Mix along with a few black sequins from my stash as the shaker filler, and then adhered a few random pieces of the gold confetti on the background. Using the Kat Scrappiness Friendship Greetings stamp set, I stamped the word ‘you’ on a scrap piece of Solar White cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, trimmed it, and adhered it to the lightbulb.

I cut the inside panel from Solar White cardstock, embellished it with strips of the foiled vellum and black cardstock used on the front, and stamped the sentiment (from the same stamp set) in black ink.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas

Hi friends! Welcome 2023! Sure can’t believe it’s here already… seems like we just rung in 2022! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #48 – Anything Christmas Goes! I used the Hot Off The Press Forest Snow Globe Chipboard Kit as the focal element on this adorable shaker card done in neutrals. I typically don’t use tan and gray together, but this totally works!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock, a layering panel from kraft corrugated paper and four strips of CutCardStock Shadow Gray cardstock in varying widths. I created the focal shaker element using the Hot Off The Press Forest Snow Globe Chipboard Kit, and enhanced the globe with a layered circle frame cut from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Silver cardstock. I colored the tree, rabbit, deer, geese and base with alcohol markers. I sprayed the background with Tattered Angels Pewter Color Wash and flicked silver paint from a Posca silver paint pen over it. Finally, I created snowbanks with layers of Solar White cardstock. I assembled the snow globe and added a pinch of homemade snow mix consisting of Stampin’ Up Snowflake sequins, Neat & Tangled sequins, Spiegelmom Snowy Fields sequins, and Pretty Pink Posh Marshmallow Seed Beads. The final step was adding a sentiment from the Concord & 9th Tiny Trees Turnabout Stamp Set stamped in Catherine Pooler Black Jack ink.

I cut the inside panel from Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Silver and Shadow Gray cardstock used on the front. I stamped a sentiment from the Concord & 9th Home for the Holidays stamp set in Catherine Pooler Black Jack ink.

Merry Christmas Scene in a Bottle

Hey everybody! Happy Friday – I hope you’re having an awesome week! I’ve popped in this morning to share another Kat Scrappiness Creative Influencer inspiration project with you! I know I’ve shared many times that I absolutely love shakers – so instead of a ‘message in a bottle’, we have a ‘scene in a bottle’ which is one of the many relatively new products in the store. In addition to this Christmas Scene in a Bottle Shaker Card Kit, I used the Christmas Gnomes Stamp Set, Friendship Greetings Stamp Set, 3mm Sparkling Clear Droplets and 4mm Sparkling Clear Droplets to create this Christmas card with an inked background! So fun!

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock. Next, I DTP-inked a panel of Strathmore Bristol 100# Smooth with Ranger stormy sky, faded jeans, prize ribbon and villainous potion distress inks. When it was completely dry, I flicked water on it and blotted it with paper towel, and adhered it to the card base.

I colored the cork on the end with a brown Tombow marker and added some CutCardStock Brown Bag Kraft paper to resemble cork. Next, I used brown, red, gold and green Tombow markers to color the scene in the bottle, and applied Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops to the trees and ground for the snow.

I assembled the shaker, laid down 3mm Sparkling Clear Droplets and 4mm Sparkling Clear Droplets onto the background, and adhered the shaker over top of them. I adhered a few more clear droplets on the background and added a stamped and trimmed sentiment from the Christmas Gnomes stamp set, which completed the card front.

I cut the inside panel from #80 Solar White cardstock, stamped a sentiment from the Friendship Greetings stamp set, and layered the panel on CutCardStock Basis Medium Blue cardstock.

Saddle On Up

Hey everybody! How’s your day going?! Life is beautiful here in southwestern Colorado and we’re totally enjoying our slightly cooler Autumn weather! I’m stoked to be back this afternoon with another Keep It Simple DT inspiration project to share! You know how I love me some shaker cards, and this one featuring products from the new Little Cowgirl Birthday release is the absolute sweetest one ever! I used the Little Cowgirl Birthday Collection Pack 6×6 Cardstock, Little Cowgirl Birthday Die Cut Pieces and Little Cowgirl Birthday Sentiments Stamp Set, along with the Back To Basics Rose Collection Pack 6×6 Cardstock and Back To Basics Rose Enamel Hearts which are already in the store.

I cut a top-folding square card base along with layering panels from the 6×6 Collection Pack and the 6×6 Rose Collection Pack, and adhered the floral panel to the card base. I made a frame out of the rose panel and added several Scotch 3M Foam Strips to the back side. I adhered the large cowgirl on pony die cut from the Die Cut Pieces to the background panel, and added some Kat Scrappiness hollow square confetti (free sample with an order). I stamped a sentiment from the Birthday Sentiments Stamp Set in Memento Rich Cocoa ink on a lighter shade of rose cardstock in the Rose Collection Pack, punched it with a circle punch and layered it on a slightly larger Solar White cardstock punched circle. I added a Rose Enamel Heart to the punched sentiment, which completed the card front.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock, embellished it with leftover strips of cardstock from the 6×6 Collection Pack and the 6×6 Rose Collection Pack used on the front, and stamped another sentiment from the Birthday Sentiments Stamp Set in Rich Cocoa ink.

Hey Chickee!

Hey everybody! I’m back with one last post on this fine Saturday morning! I’ve been asked to guest design for InkyStamper for the month of October, and I can’t tell you how much fun I’ve had playing with their super adorable stamps and dies! So stay tuned for posts every Wednesday this month! ;)

Now for the surprise… Chickee is being released today for World Card Making Day! The stamp set is FREE with a $30 purchase and the die is only a $5 add-on! How awesome is that?! I had the privilege of creating a fun shaker note card using these stamps and die as an extra project, which I paired with Doodlebug Design Gingham-Linen Rainbow Petite Prints 6×6 double-sided cardstock (some of my favorite cardstock!) and Picket Fence Studios Rainbow Sequins from the store. What friend wouldn’t love to get a card featuring this gal?!

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from Doodlebug Design Gingham-Linen Rainbow Petite Prints which I adhered to the card base. I stamped Chickee on Solar White cardstock, colored her with alcohol markers, and cut her with the coordinating die.

I cut a frame from CutCardStock Pop Tone Lemon Drop cardstock using the Cottage Cutz Double-Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stuck some 7 Gypsies Architext Tall Base Chicken Wire to a piece of acetate cut to fit the frame, and adhered it to the back side of the frame. I laid the frame on the card front to get an idea of where to stamp the sentiment and adhere the image, and once that was done, I added four Scotch 3M adhesive foam strips to the back of the frame, laid down some Picket Fence Studios Rainbow Sequins, and adhered the shaker to the card front. I adhered three loose yellow sequins, which completed the card front.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it strips of the gingham and yellow cardstock used on the front. I left the panel blank, leaving plenty of room to write a custom message.

Congrats see-through shaker

Hey everybody! Happy Hump Day – I hope you’re having a great week! I’ve popped in today to share another Kat Scrappiness Creative Influencer inspiration project! I’ve been playing (again) with the Kat Scrappiness Oopsie Daisy Layered Stamp Set and coordinating dies, along with the Kat Scrappiness Mini slimline Postage Stamp Edge Dies and Congrats Word Die, and created a pretty congrats card. I love shaker cards, and rather than creating one with a traditional shaker, I created a see-through shaker element on this card that really gives it some pizzazz!

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from Sunny Studio Striped Silly cardstock. I cut an aperture into the card front with a Kat Scrappiness Mini slimline Postage Stamp Edge Die.

Using my We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool and a pouch, I created a shaker element (with a blue and clear sequin mix sample that Kat tucked into one of my orders), adhered it to the back of the aperture, and concealed the edges of the pouch with a white cardstock frame to give it a clean finished look.

I stamped and die cut a single daisy (using the Kat Scrappiness Oopsie Daisy stamps and dies) which I adhered to the bottom right corner of the aperture. I used the Kat Scrappiness Congrats Word Die for the main sentiment, cut from Solar White cardstock.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Royal Sundance Midnight Blue Linen cardstock and Sunny Studio Striped Silly cardstock. The sentiment is computer-generated and placed so it’s visible through the see-through shaker.

Have a Magical Day

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! I hope you’re having a fabulous week! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring our Bright Silver Foil cardstock which is a must-have (along with the Bright Gold Foil cardstock) in my studio. I created a shaker card and used alcohol ink on the silver foil cardstock to create the background for this adorable fairy-themed birthday card!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from Mantis Green cardstock and Bright Silver Foil cardstock. I dropped Ranger Aqua, Sailboat Blue, Citrus and Lettuce alcohol inks along with Ranger Alcohol Blending Solution onto the silver foil cardstock, used an air blower to move it around the foil, and set it aside to dry thoroughly. I die cut an oval frame from Kale Green cardstock using the Cottage Cutz Double-Stitched Oval dies and a fairy castle from the silver foil cardstock using the Scrap Man Fairy Castle die.

Using the smaller of the two oval dies, I die cut an oval aperture into the alcohol ink background and a piece of dark green craft foam. I adhered a piece of acetate behind the aperture, adhered the craft foam, and then adhered the Kale Green oval frame to the front of the inked background.

I added a pinch of Kat Scrappiness Mirrored Clear Confetti Dot Mix to the Mantis Green cardstock panel and adhered the background, sealing in the confetti. I stamped the sentiment from the Prickley Pear Stamps Best Unicorn Buddies stamp set in Catherine Pooler Lime Rickey and Spruce inks, trimmed them and layered them on a scrap of Kale Green cardstock, and added them to the card front. The final step was adding small Eyelet Outlet turquoise gemstones to the silver foil fairy castle and adhering it to the acetate.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of Bright Silver Foil cardstock and Mantis Green cardstock. I stamped the sentiment (from the same Prickley Pear Stamps Best Unicorn Buddies stamp set) in Catherine Poole Lime Rickey ink and layered the panel on Kale Green cardstock.

And one more peek… this shaker card is so stinkin’ cute I can’t even stand it! The alcohol ink background worked so well on the silver foil cardstock to create the background, and I love the silver foil fairy castle!

live your dream shaker card

Hi friends! Happy Thursday! Is the weather still pretty chilly where you are or is it warming up any? We are seeing very gradual increases in our temps during the day although we did recently get more snow, and we sure need the moisture. Overall, though, our winter has been pretty mild so we’ll probably have a warm summer! I’m thrilled to be back on the Clear Scraps blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a pretty encouragement card in a green and pink color combo featuring our Mini Shaker Milk-Can and our 5×9 Circles Dots Stencil. Both products are new in the store and really fun to play with!

Let me start with an up-close shot of the Mini Shaker Milk-Can which I created first. Several of the embellishments are recycled from a tag my friend Ginny (from Polly’s Paper Studio) included in one of my orders a number of years back. The tag was super adorable so I kept it… but it got damaged while we were full-time RVers and I didn’t want to throw the entire thing away, so I salvaged the bow, the bird and the ticket. I adhered patterned paper to the chipboard back along with a small paper doily, a punched circle from another patterned paper, and the ticket. I adhered the next two chipboard forms, added white sequins, and adhered the acrylic divider (with the protective film removed) along with the remaining chipboard form. I adhered the bird on a die cut branch, three paper flowers, a charm, and the bow with hot glue.

I cut a mini slimline card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from 80# Solar White cardstock and patterned paper. Using the 5×9 Circles Dots Stencil with a dauber and green and pink distress inks, I stenciled the design on the white cardstock panel. I adhered the short patterned paper panel to the bottom, inked the edges, and adhered the panel to the card base. I die cut a shape from green cardstock using a labels die and adhered it to the card front. I adhered the finished shaker along with some iridescent gemstones which completed the front of the card.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with the patterned paper used on the front and a narrow strip of green cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in green ink and layered the panel on green cardstock.

And one more peek… this shaker was super fun to create, along with the stenciled background, and I’m thrilled with how the card turned out!

Howdy, peeps! Happy St. Patty’s Day to ya! The weekend is almost here and I hope you have something fun planned! Our weather is starting to warm up and it’s just beautiful outdoors! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’m back this morning to share another sample I created a while back for Prickley Pear Stamps – a fun Halloween card with a coffin that opens up to reveal shaker elements and die cut bones inside! Bahahaha… I had THE best time creating this! This card features our Dancing Skeleton stamp set and coordinating Dancing Skeleton die set along with the inside sentiment from our Bats 2 stamp set.

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis Light Brown cardstock along with a wood-look layering panel from My Mind’s Eye Howdy Doody paper pad which I adhered to the card base. I added a light brown cardstock strip down the left side of the card front that I embellished with a strip of Eyelet Outlet gold film strip washi tape and clear bling colored with a brown alcohol marker. Using the Dancing Skeleton stamp set, a piece of acetate, and several double-sided adhesive foam strips, I created a 3-D coffin shaker which I embellished with some paper flowers. I stamped the RIP sentiment (from the same stamp set) in the lower right corner prior to adhering the coffin to the front of the card.

Here’s a shot of the open coffin revealing bones die cut from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock using the Dancing Skeleton die set. The shaker filler consists of spider confetti from stash, Pretty Pink Posh Silver Shimmer Seed Beads, Spiegelmom Scraps Snowy Fields Sequin Mix, and Doodlebug Design Orange Sequins. I added homemade hinges and a small magnet closure.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock and embellished it with a strip of the wood-look paper used on the front as well as a narrow strip of CutCardStock Basis Light Brown cardstock. I stamped a sentiment from the Bats 2 stamp set in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and layered the panel on light brown cardstock.

And one more look… so so so happy with how this turned out! These stamp sets (and dies) are amazing and create some of the most fun cards!

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!
