I am usually not a huge fan of making shaker cards… unless it is incorporated into the card as a subtle embellishment. Today’s technique us perfect for that! The video shares lots of tips on making the process easy and quick… and the different adhesives you can use.

My first card features the new Paper Smooches So Fairy Cute Stamp Set (SSS | PS). This fairy is so cute… as is the sentiment! I formed a shaker window around it with the coordinating die… and added a bit of Tonic Nuvo Golden Years Confetti inside.

I also covered my notecard with Sunny Studio Pastel Gingham Paper (SSS | SS) for a bit of fun.

My next card also uses the Paper Smooches So Fairy Cute Stamp Set (SSS | PS). I assembled this card in a similar way but first used a Sunny Studio Sunburst Embossing Folder (SSS | SS) to add texture to the background.

I like to use clear, sparkly confetti or sequins in the shaker window so it doesn’t cover up the stamped image. For this example and the last, I used Tonic Nuvo Golden Years Confetti.

This next card features another of my new favorite stamp sets – the Avery Elle Phonomenal Stamp Set (SSS | AE). Isn’t this clever? I created a shaker window with the stamped image and Honey Bee Clay Hearts inside.

I find this stamped shaker card technique can be used with a variety of stamp/die sets. Here I used the Mama Elephant Heart In Bloom Stamp Set with coordinating dies. This time I put clear gems in the shaker window. I LOVE this look.

I also stamped the Gina K Whisper Cardstock background with the Altenew Dainty Swiss Dots (SSS | ALT) and Gina K Amalgam Whisper Ink.

My next card shows that this technique works with even unique shaped stamps/dies. This features the My Favorite Things Birth-Yay Stamp Set (SSS | MFT). I stamped a “celebrate” sentiment from the My Favorite Things Party Penguins Stamp Set (SSS | MFT).

Those little animals are so cute… and the bit of moving sparkle adds fun!

My next example uses the cute Mama Elephant Flying With Friends Stamp Set. I applied Altenew Sea Breeze Ink (SSS | ALT) with a Picket Fence Life Changing Brush (SSS | PS) around the die cut window for touch of color.

I only put a tiny bit of confetti in this one since the image is smaller.

I find this technique is perfect for large stamp images and coordinating dies. I was excited to use the InkOn3 Magical Unicorn Stamp Set – isn’t that unicorn gorgeous?

I used larger Pretty Pink Posh Clear Confetti inside and they worked perfect.

My last card steps things up a bit. Not only did I do a stamped shaker, but I also added a “hello” die cut shaker. This features the Sunny Studio Love Monkey Stamp Set (SSS | SS) and Birch Press Hello Sugar Script Die.

I also white heat embossed the Altenew Dainty Swiss Dots (SSS | ALT) on kraft cardstock.

  1. Great ideas! I’ve gotten away from Shaker cards, but this video today inspired me to get started again. TY very much, Jennifer.

  2. Such cute cards!! You make everything look so easy. I need to get out of my comfort zone and give this a try!! Thanks Jennifer!!

  3. They are all so cute. I am always so inspired by your creations.

    What size card and backing for design do you use?

  4. I love how you color and make shaker cards. Maybe not something I will do immediately…still trying to perfect some of your other techniques… but every video you have shows me additional things that can be done. Thank you.

  5. Great ideas. I use Tonic Deluxe adhesive for my cards and it also works great. I need to find tiny shaker elements for small openings (not a fan of glitter). TheVagabond cuts through the foam with adhesive beautifully.

  6. Another awesome video. You are such an inspiration! I am going to try this technique this week. I also love how you added the “e” and the “o” on the last card. I would never have thought to keep them in the die like that, but it makes it so much easier! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Thank you, Jennifer, for the time you took to make this particular video. I happen to love shaker cards but I’m still finding my way in constructing them. That being said, I will be referring back to this very informative video again and again. Each card in this set was adorable and inspirational! 💗

  8. You said some people don’t like shaker cards! How can that be?!! My, oh, my! So hard to believe! And these are some of the best ever! I appreciate all the tips, like using the right sized shaker bits and the way you used a word die with the a shaker! That black cardstock did make a huge difference. And the different backgrounds. The pop of red sure made the gray stand off the white paper. I could go on. It’s nice to know I’m still teachable and have the best to teach me, i.e., you! Thank you!

  9. Hi Jennifer
    You sure have been busy, making videos… I watched all three this afternoon. All of them are so inspiring. Very clever techniques to some old ideas. Can’t wait to try some. Thank You for all your inspiration and advise. Like reinforcements on thin areas. Or black card stock behind the words to make them pop! Great ideas and a great job. On all three recent videos.

  10. I usually don’t like to make Interactive cards but I loooove making shaker cards! Thanks for the little tips here and there 🙂

  11. I am in love with Shaker cards! However, without a die cutter I can’t make them. Queen & Co have shaker card kits for those of us who don’t have die cutters & they are so much fun to use! I am trying to get other stamp companies to make shaker card kits so I have lots to pick from. I’m sure there are others out there like me who don’t own a die cutter.
    I love all of your cards! I never would have thought to use the rain drops in a shaker card but I kind of like it! I have those rain drops & I used them on a card with flowers & they do look like dew drops or rain drops. I love embellishments! My favorites are the ones that have yellow in them & there are quite a few! The Heart In Bloom & Unicorn are so beautiful! You make the best cards along with Kathy Rac!
    Now that I can watch YouTube videos on my big screen TV I have to check out some of your videos & I will!

  12. I loved your shaker card video today using stamped images. They turned out darling. The floral card was gorgeous. Thank you for the many examples you shared with us.

  13. OMGoodness! I {heart} Shaker cards! These are amazingly beautiful, every one of them! Your glitter bits and pieces have so much sparkle and shine–I need to buy them all lol TFS!!!

  14. Cute cards! I have several stamp/die sets that would be cute with this idea. I’ve always been paranoid about lining things up properly, but you make it look so easy. Thanks for another great video.

  15. wow Jennifer, what an awesome card. I love this kind of shaker cards where the focus is still on the gorgeous stamp and colouring. Great idea! Thank you so much for showing and have a great day.

  16. Oh my, these are adorable! You make the shaker process look so easy. Usually, I end up with sticky stuff on the acetate, and sparkles everywhere! Thanks for the awesome tips and clear video!

  17. DELIGHTFUL cards!
    LOVE the MAGIC you have created with this FABULOUS technique!
    THANK YOU for sharing and INSPIRING … and making me SMILE at your SWEET SPARKLE 🙂

  18. I am away on vacation and enjoying time by the pool watching you!! I am exited to go home and try this!! You never disappoint!! I am always amazed with all of your creative ideas. I loved how you showed how you changed the background on the “Hello”. It takes me FOREVER to plan out a card. You are WONDERFUL!!!

  19. Your cards are so fun! I’d wondered about the foam with adhesive already on it, so I appreciate your tip about the stick-it paper working out better.

  20. This is a great unique take on shaker cards and I’m definitely going to try this technique. Fabulous ideas and video as always. Thank you so much for the time you take to make such awesome, clear videos. I always learn new things from you.

  21. Thank you for making this fun video, I know it must have been lengthy for you but it’s very much appreciated by us out here. You had so many awesome ideas for this & it has set me off thinking what I have to utilise. Have a marvellous weekend, it’s mother’s day on Sunday in the UK so I’m wishing all is moms both sides of the pond an awesome day x

  22. Hello Mrs. Mcguire,
    What did you use to colour the unicorn with – alcohol markers or coloured pencils?
    I do so hope you respond.
