Hey there friends! Today I’m joining Concord and 9th in celebrating their latest release, and to kick things off, I’m excited to share the Flower Shaker Shapes stamp and die set. For those of you who love shaker cards, you are going to have SO much fun with these!
To get started, I created my background panel by stamping the abstract circle image from the Flower Shaker Shapes stamp set on white cardstock. Ballet Slipper was my ink of choice here because I wanted the shaker flower to be the focal part of the card. Speaking of which, next, I heat embossed one of the large flowers from the stamp set on Oceanside cardstock using clear embossing powder. I was going for a tone-on-tone look here, and this created exactly what I was hoping for – along with some extra shine on the embossed areas.
Next up, I stamped “you made my day” on Ballet Slipper cardstock, a wavy sentiment that coordinates perfectly with the banner die in the Flower Shaker Shapes die set. With my die cutting machine ready to go, I cut out the flower, the sentiment banner, as well as a bunch of mini circle confetti pieces from glitter cardstock. The Flower Shaker Shapes bundle comes with 3 confetti shape options – circles, flowers and hearts – so you can create whatever fun little bits your heart desires!
Finally, it was time for assembly. I die cut a circle right in the middle of my background panel which I would then place the flower shaker window over. I backed the flower die cut with acetate, then foam tape, then secured it over the background panel. After flipping that piece over and covering all but the window area with foam tape, I gathered all my confetti bits in the shaker window, glittery side facing forward.I sealed up the back of the window with Peacock cardstock, then mounted it all on my A2 card base.
I hope you’re feeling inspired to craft up some shaker card goodness, and if you’d like to check out the rest of this release, you can find it on Concord & 9th’s site, Ellen Hutson, and Scrapbook.com. Thanks so much for stopping by!
