I was asked to help Celebrate Nation Craft Month with our friends from
Right At Home Stamps. A fun blog hop and prizes...who could resist?
I had the opportunity to attend a StampingAway weekend last fall in Newton, Kansas with a few crafty pals and received this super fun crafty stamp set as part of the SWAG! There is more information at the bottom of this post on how to have a chance to win this fun set.
Here are a couple of shaker cards I made using this stamp set.
Before now, I think I had only made one shaker card in my lifetime...sad I know. I went to a stamp party the other night and was taught this awesome trick with a clear envelope/sleeve, that made making a shaker card easy peasy puddin' pie.
Just complete the panel that you want as your focal point. Then place it inside one of the clear envelopes, folding over the excess on the non-open side and taping down. Then pour your sparkly goodness in the opening, fold over and tape down and you are all set to go. You can add the shaker piece to your card front. Pretty spiffy!!
The second card is more traditional shaker card, using fun foam.
I used a frame die and cut the frame from the stamped and decorated panel. This allowed the rainbow to be on the frame as well as the focal piece. I used the black fun foam so the dimension would be highly noticeable. If I were going to do more Id probably use white as the foam tends to smoosh out under the pressure of the big shot. I plan on making a few more of these and giving them to my craft group that meets regularly as a fun little surprise.
