This may well be my favorite Saleabration set – Party Pandas I used these cute little guys to create two shaker cards. There are a few differences (besides the colors!) so let’s take a look at them.
I used the Sweet & Sassy Framelits to make the openings on both cards. This one is a 4 x 5 1/4 white piece with some Tangerine Tango DSP behind it. The hat, ballon and heart on the envelope were colored with Stampin Blends and the openings were filled with some retired beads and sequins. After I die cut the openings, I put the die back over the opening and used a Tangerine Tango Stampin Write Marker to make a stitched line around the hearts.
The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
For this card I switched to Calypso Coral and used the Diagonal Stripe stamp to create a tone on tone background. The piece is slightly smaller- 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 – because I wanted to add a black mat to the back. And I ditched the patterned paper on this one and just used white. The Party Pandas will be available on January 4th. Have a favorite? Let me know! Hugs, Fran
I love shaker cards but have a terrible time deciding how much filler to put in them. This one is stuffed! But boy, does it shake! I used the Balloon Adventure stamp set and matching die and Tasty Treats Specialty paper to make this card. The Sprinkles Embellishments inside match the paper. Very fun – if a little too full. Hugs, Fran
Let’s shake up the weather! This card uses Weather Together as a Shaker card. I started by die cutting a circle and used the adhesive foam strips around the circle to make the holder for the sequins. The easiest way to do this is to remove the paper from both sides of the strips. Then it goes around any shape without any cutting or stress. Add a window sheet to the back and stamp your sentiment in Stazon. Stamp and die cut the umbrella and place it on top. Use more adhesive foam strips around the edge of the front piece and adhere it to your card base.
Then shake it! So cute and easy! Hugs, Fran
Shake it up, baby! This shaker card features a sneak peek of a new set – Layering Love. There is also a great new product coming soon – Foam Adhesive Strips. These are 1/8″ deep strips of foam that are 9″ long. They make making shaker cards easy!
The colors are Smoky Slate and Basic Gray for the card and the hearts are Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry. Check out the pretty ribbon! It’s the new 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon in Sweet Sugarplum. I can’t stop shaking it! Hugs, Fran
