A Simple Shaker Card

I used to make shaker cards ALL.THE.TIME.  It’s been FOREVER since I’ve made one, so today was the day!  I was inspired by challenge GDP174 from the Global Design Project for this week.

This image immediately brought a shaker to mind, Ionly had to figure out what stamp set to use.  Since I just made a card with Butterfly Gala Bundle, I had supplies out on my desk for that bundle so I went with it!

I have been dying to give the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits a try, so that became the base of my design.  I chose to do a flat shaker to keep it easier.  The card is simply a Granny Apple Green card base with a layer of the same color card stock and a designer paper as the top layer.  I would have used designer paper by itself, but with a shaker you want a sturdier cover.  The paper comes from the gorgeous FREE Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-bration Catalog.

I cut the center of the shaker frame with a stitched rectangle, then created a frame to go over top with two dies cut at the same time.

As you can see, you just set them evenly on the Big Shot to cut out a perfect frame.

The shaker portion is just Iridescent Sequins inside a small bag.  I taped the bag to the back of the front layer of card before attaching it to the card base.  Use Tear & Tape adhesive for a firm hold.  More info about how to make shaker cards of all styles can be found HERE.

For the final touches, I added a strip of Pineapple Punch card stock with the sentiment.  I added a small butterfly that was stamped with Memento Black Ink and colored with Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  I originally thought I would use both the large and small butterflies that I stamped and punched out, but the small by itself was all the card needed.  Over all, I am super pleased with how today’s shaker card turned out!

A big thanks to the Global Design Project team for the inspiration!!

Christmas Shaker Card

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is CHRISTMAS CARDS WITH MOVEMENT.

ccmfall3

Of course you know I had to go with a SHAKER CARD since it’s my favorite style of movement card!

candy-cane-christmas-shaker-becreativewithnicole-com

This is a flat shaker and I only did the top portion of the card so the gingerbread man could be along the bottom.

candy-cane-christmas-shaker

The card features two stamp set that work beautifully together, CANDY CANE CHRISTMAS and COOKIE CUTTER CHRISTMAS.  I also added in the coordinating CANDY CANE LANE WASHI TAPE AND DSP.

candy-cane-christmas-shaker-becreativewithnicole-com

What I love about this type of card is how easy it is!  Shaker cards with height require more time to assemble since you have to work with foam adhesive.  This flat style of card skips that step so you can move fast yet still have the wow factor of the shaker.

STAMPS:   Candy Cane Christmas, Cookie Cutter Christmas

INKS:  Real Red, Soft Suede

Party with Cake Funfold

I have a really FUN card for you today!  I am so loving PARTY WITH CAKE and wishing I’d ordered it sooner!

Party with Cake becreativewithnicole

Another bold card!  This stamp set is just so perfect for the bolder brighter look.  But wait until you see the inside!

Party with Cake becreativewithnicole.com

It’s a Pop Out Swing Shaker card!!  I originally make this type of card last fall and it was very popular.  If you’d like to see the original, click HERE to see the card and video with instructions.

Party with Cake

The original Pop Out Swing Shaker that I did had the typical shaker front with window sheet and dimensionals.  For this one I went with the flat shaker using VELLUM CARDSTOCK.  The bits and pieces inside the shaker were the cut outs from the die cuts that coordinate with the stamps called PARTY POP UP THINLITS.  I also added a few sequins inside and out.  The die cut sentiment was also from the left overs from die cutting.  It’s so fabulous to have a use for the intended die cut and the scraps…love it!

Party with Cake becreativewithnicole

I hope you enjoyed this card today, I sure had a blast creating it!  Give it a try for  yourself, this funfold card is so addicting!

Shake it Up!

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week we are all about shaker cards….woo hoo, just my style!

I was so excited to make another shaker this week, I didn’t know where to start!!  I knew that spring colors were a must so that guided me to this……

For You shaker becreativewithnicole

Seriously springy, right??  I really love the bold greeting against all the soft colors, really makes it pop!

For you shaker

It all started with the Sale-a-bration set BOTANICALS FOR YOU.  I love the small flowers with the ginormous greeting.  BUT, the greeting was way too big for what I needed, so I used a bit of painters tape to mask off the word “just” so that “for you” would fit just right!

For You Shaker becreativewithnicole.com

Inside the shaker I placed small punched flowers along with silver and white sequins.  I also added a few flowers to the front of the card to dress it up a bit.  I think I achieved what I was going for, I really see spring when I look at this happy card!  Check out the supply list, I’ve added all the products I used so you can make your own happy spring shaker!

STAMPS: Botanicals for You

INKS:  Archival Black, Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzaz

A Nice Pot of Tea

Another challenge we had for the Creative Crew this month was to make a card with a positive /negative design.  Can you guess what I made……..

Teariffic by becreativewithnicole.com

If you guessed a shaker you were right!  It’s been awhile since I’ve made a shaker so this was the first thing that came to mind!  A Nice Cuppa and the coordinating Cups & Kettle Framelits made this a tea-riffic shaker card!

tea shaker

I wanted it to look like you were pouring a cup of tea, so I used gold microbeads inside the tea pot.  I also added a few sequins under the spout to look like the tea was pouring out.

tea riffic shaker by becreativewithnicole.com

This is such a fun stamp and framelit set!  You can get them both for 15% off when you purchase the bundle….isn’t that fantastic!!  They work together beautifully as the framelits have some things that you don’t get in the stamp set.  So many ways to use these!

Wonderland Flat Shaker

I’ve been away for a week, sorry I haven’t shared any ideas with you.  We just moved to a new house after living at the previous house for over ten years.  Do you know how much stuff a family of 5 can collect in that amount of time??  A LOT!!  We are exhausted but glad to be settling into our new home.  Things are still chaotic, but I am SO READY to get back to stamping and sharing!!

Here’s a fun card I made before all the moving started, it’s with my favorite set WONDERLAND.

Wondeand Flat Shaker becreativewithnicole.com

I just love these flat shakers!  It’s hard to see in the picture, but there are trees stamped behind the vellum.  I wanted a winter woods effect with the sequins acting like snowflakes.  I even threw in a few of the snowflakes from last year’s holiday catalog because they were a perfect fit.

Wonderland

Since the trees in the background are harder to see, I added a couple tree tops to the vellum.  I love that they match perfectly with the washi tape……Mossy Meadow is such a lovely color for pine trees!

Wonderland Flat Shaker by becreativewithnicole.com

I added a couple of sequins to the front of the card as well.  They matched nicely with the silver embossed sentiment.  I don’t think I can get enough of silver embossing and sequins this holiday season!

Snowy Wonderland

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week we are featuring Christmas cards using BLUE,WHITE and SILVER.

create blog hop badge

I’m back with another shaker, I thought today’s hop would be perfect for this snowy scene.

Wonderland shaker card by becreativewithnicole.com

Isn’t this wonderful!  I bought a bag full of little snow beads last year and have a ton left to use, so here we go!  The perfect stamp set for this type of card, WONDERLAND.

Wonderland shaker

Here’s a close up of the shaker.  I stamped the trees in Night of Navy then added silver stars and the snow beads.  To dress up the shaker, I gave it a silver glimmer frame.

Wonderland shaker by becreativewithicole.com

For a bit more silver and to continue with the snow theme, I added Winter Wonderland Vellum over Whisper White.  This softness allows the bold silver embossed sentiment to really stand out.  I am so pleased with the silver snowscape, what do you think?

STAMPS:  Wonderland

PAPER:  Night of Navy, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer, Winter Wonderland Vellum

INKS:  Versamark, Night of Navy
