This summer I’ve had the pleasure of being one of Reverse Confetti’s Fetti Friends, and today I’m excited to be part of the August blog hop. The July release included a whole bunch of fun new products including hot foil plates (more about those here), and today’s card highlights the Dog Days stamp set and coordinating dies.
I began this project by stamping and coloring a couple of images from the Dog Days stamp set, using my Copics and a palette of pale aqua blues, oranges, and a touch of yellow. The coordinating dies made cutting them out a breeze, and I used the Dog Days Sentiments to emboss a little “sending good vibes” on Concord & 9th Oceanside cardstock.
Moving on to the background, I wanted to make it look like the dog was suntanning next to a swimming pool. To do this, I made a quick ink blended panel to serve as the back of my shaker card. Next, I used the Deco Cover Panel and white cardstock to make a thick frame (or pool deck), and cut a rectangle out of the middle. With a piece of acetate adhered behind it and foam tape covering the edges, the shaker window was all ready to go.
I poured some iridescent stars onto the aqua ink blended background and mounted the window panel over top, sealing all the stars inside. Finally, I adhered the dog, umbrella and sentiment on top, and finished the card by adding some Glossy Accents to the dog’s sunglasses.
And there you have it, a fun and super cute summer-themed shaker card! Be sure to check out the other stops along the blog hop by visiting the links below.
