Don’t you love the plaid?  It speaks of Fall weather and I’m so ready for it.  Here in MD, we are finally getting some fall weather.  The 80s of last week are the 50s of this week.

The shaker has enough sparkles to make the sound you need for a shaker, keep the insides moving around, and still read the inside saying!  I have found out less is more when it comes to shaker cards.

You Are the Sunshine Shakers

You Are The Sunshine Shakers

The February Stamp of the Month (SOM) S1802 Sunny Thoughts is a wonderful stamp set.  I had this vision of creating a shaker card with the sentiment “You are the Sunshine in My Pocket” with a sunshine shaker.   You can see why from the sentiments in this set:

I ended up creating a 2 cards for this, using two different options.   The first one was creating using the Design Space and the sunshine overlay from Artbooking.    Cut out the overlay at least 14-15 times to create the shaker.    The idea comes  from Jennifer Mcquire and some shaker ornaments she made.  She did hers with a die.  For mass production, I prefer using Design Space!

It’s a little tedious to glue all the layers together.  The look you get is well worth it.  You can make any image you want to cut out multiple times and make a great shaker from it.  Get the acetate from Staples in a box of transparencies.    They work great and are inexpensive. Cardstock is Black, Lemon, and Tangerine, all CTMH.  Fill with Queen and Company toppers.   Use a sponge dauber to swirl around Lemon ink on the sentiment to give it some depth and color.

The second shaker is made using Queen and Company’s sunburst foam card front and die:

The Making Waves  purple paper went on top with Lemon cardstock as the base.  The Lemon cardstock shows through like rays of sunshine and the yellow toppings added some bling and shake to it all.   The purple/white dots background and texture paper really makes the Lemon pop.  The large circle die from CTMH cuts the circle for the sentiment but you can use the circle from Art Philosophy (if you have it) or Access, and cut at 2.5″.  Distress the circle with Lemon ink and a sponge dauber.

February things to keep in mind:

Thanks for stopping by to checkout my creative world.  Catch this sunshine of a stamp set.  It’s sure to brighten someone’s day.   If you need some creative help,  I’m here to help you out – give me a call or email me: info@lindacreates.com!!

Good Days Start with Coffee

Good Days Start with Coffee

I had a fun time making this card.  Been in a shaker cardmaking mode for a bit and this was great fun to use the coffee beans in the shaker with various toppings from Queen and Company.   Another card for the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop.

I used Stamplorations coffee mug to cut out the center of the shaker from No Worries paper from CTMH.  Sapphire is the background cardstock (25% off this month).  Cut transparency out  and put on the back of the paper creating the window.  For the coffee beans to work, you need to double layer 3D foam tape.  Create a box on the Sapphire cardstock and add your shaker fillings in.

Mount the top of the card on the 3D foam tape.  Stamp the sentiment from My Favorite Things – LLD Perk Up in Sapphire on Lagoon paper.  Cut out the  “and you”.    Put the sentiments as shown.

Some of the beans are a little big and don’t shake around very well.  Love the brown and blue combination.  The card smells amazing with the coffee beans in it.  =)

You Are My Happy

You Are My Happy:

What a fun shaker, right?  This is another retired stamp set that just called out to be used with this great background paper from Sugar Rush!  Did you get your paper pack yet?  If you have not, it’s retiring on April 30th.  It’s definitely a sweet paper pack.  Here is some of the beautiful things you can create with it:

The little dog is stamped, fussy cut, colored with Shin Han Touch Markers.   Use 3D foam tape to pop the little guy up.

Liquid Glass is great to add highlights on this card.  It’s on the nose, tag, and ice cream cones all around.  If you look at the ice cream cone on the dog, it’s got Clear Shimmer Pen on it first and then the Liquid Glass.

The shaker and dies are from Queen and Company.  The shaker insides are seed beads and sequins from my stash as I was running out of Queen and Company toppings.  This card will be in the Shaker Card Party Buffet in April/May.  Come and Play or host one at your house!

April is a great month!  Here are the links to all of the great specials:

Happy Wishes On Your Day

Happy Wishes On Your Day

This is the last butterfly shaker card and created to send greetings to an upcoming nuptial, birthday, or individual celebration.  The paper is from Hello Lovely, which is retiring on April 30, 2017.  

You can see the wonderfully subtle papers here which work well for all elegant occasions.  I think it would even work well for babies if you use the opposites side of the flower paper.

I chose to use Lemon cardstock for the butterfly because I really wanted it to stand out.  I see all the yellow butterflies in the spring so this paper works out so well for this card.  Yellow creates such a happy feeling.

The shaker (butterfly) and the die are from Queen and Company.  The insides are from my seed bead and sequins stash.  I love these little shakers as they make making shakers so darn easy you can’t help but fall in love with them.  The foam is thick enough (you can make the 3D foam tape thick enough by layering it up) to allow the shaker insides to move freely.

When the card stands up, you can see that I took the inside of the die cut and put it directly on the card base, inside the shaker.  This allows the shaker to be put over different papers.  You can see the bright yellow (I just love our Lemon paper) through the transparency (which Queen and Company provides in all their kits).   This card will be in the Shaker Card Party Buffet in April and May.  Come and play!

April is a great month!  Here are the links to all of the great specials:

Life Gets Stormy

Life Gets Stormy:

Unfortunately we all have moments or times in our lives where life is not working out well.  Thank goodness for those friends who walk life with us when we can barely do it.  This shaker card celebrates those relationships.

I love the sentiment and it comes from a wonderful stamp set that is retired from CTMH.  I love it some much it has a permanent residence in my stamp collection.

The contents of the shaker are “happy”.  Flowers, stars, pearls, silver beads and more “toppings” from Queen and Company (Shaker, die, and topping are from here).  This card is on the Shaker Card Party Buffet.
