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.
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.
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.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week.
