Hi! I know many of you are still enjoying the shaker-card-trend. Today I have a fun tip to add stamped images that shake… but don’t end up upside-down, Also, I am part of a blog hop that I think you will like.
I think it is *such fun* to have stamped images floating and shaking around in a shaker card. However, sometimes the images end up upside-down and it drives me batty. 🙂 All you need is a little clear string and the problem is solved!
That unicorn/pegasus (pegicorn?) is from the new Jane’s Doodles Unicorn Stamp Set. I like Jane’s images because they are easily to color and have a playful hand-drawn look. I first colored it with my Copics… and added shimmer with my Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen.
The sentiment is from the Jane’s Doodles Cactus Stamp Set and is white heat embossed on Hot Off The Press Heat Resistant Acetate. The background in the shaker window is the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Circle Doodles Background Stamp. The frame from my shaker window? It is the My Favorite Things Single Stitch Square Frames Dies. I glued 10 together for a good-looking shaker. 🙂 But you could use foam tape instead.
In the video I show how I suspended the stamped image on clear thread so it is allowed to move a bit… but not flip around and go crazy. It makes a huge difference. (I recommend THIS clear thread, but any would work.)
On the background of my cards, I used metallic cardstocks from Gina K. These papers are so classy!
I thought a few leaves would be fun inside a shaker, too. These are from the Jane’s Doodles Thankful Stamp Set.
