Floral Shaker Cards

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great week so far 🙂 ! It’s TaeEun here today with two floral shaker cards. Using beautiful floral stamps and coordinating dies you can assemble a shaker card easier than you might think!!!

I’ve picked Wildflower Banner and Large Peony3 for my cards.

Let’s take a look at my first card.

To start off I’ve made the alcohol ink background panel on Yupo paper. I sprayed rubbing alcohol on Yupo and added alcohol inks on it by dripping and spread them by blowing. I used pink, yellow and green shades, as I planed to color the florals in the same color scheme. Set the alcohol ink panel aside, I stamped Wildflower Banner on a Bristol smooth paper in embossing ink and heat embossed it in gold. I colored it using Zig brush markers and clear glitter pen. Did you know that we have a Boutique section in our shop where you can buy the Zig brush markers and glitter pens as well? The sentiment is from Wildflower Banner stamp set as well. I stamped it in Noir and clear heat embossed it for some shine.  I die cut the image with Coordinating die and once again from a white fun foam. The frame was cut using two of the Double Stitched Rectangle dies (Large) from Adhesive foil paper gold and from a white fun foam as well.

Now it’s time to assemble the shaker card! I adhered a piece of clear acetate under the frame and the Wildflower Banner image using Liquid glue and then the die cut fun foam underneath. I put Belle’s Dress and Guava Sparkle Couture Mix into the wells and mounted the background panel. To finish off I added some dots on the flower centers using Pico embellisher.

On the second card I used coordinating dies to make a shaker window.

First I die cut a A2 sized watercolor cardstock with the Coordinating dies for the large peony and a leave from Large Peony3 as shown in the picture. I left the right edge uncut so that I can build the well for the shaker elements. I stamped and gold heat embossed the image on the positive die cuts and colored them with Zig brush markers. I mounted the peony and the leave on my card base.  I then colored the negative die cut panel with some Distress inks and splattered gold watercolor.

To assemble the shaker card I added the clear acetate sheet and foam adhesives under the front panel, put Medallion Gold sequins mix, Princess Glam, Violet Sprinkle and I Dream in Peach Couture Mix in the shaker window and mounted the card base with the colored images on the front part of the shaker card. I die cut the sentiment from Adhesive foil paper gold using hugs word die and added some branch cut with Petal Cut Peonies Standalone dies which I colored with gold watercolor. To finish off I added a strip of pink glitter tape on the right edge.

Peonies Birthday Shaker Card

Good morning and happy Easter! Vera here to share a fun shaker card. I am so into shaker card at the moment. Especially with having several fabulous couture mix from The Ton. They are simply so pretty and I couldn’t resist playing with them.

Here’s a look at the card:

I start with a panel that I trimmed slightly smaller than the card base. Then using my mini MISTI (which is available at The Ton shop under boutique) and the MISTI Creative Corner I draw the gray stripes using the wide end of my Copic.

Once that done, I die cut the rectangle opening using Modern Labels Coordinating Dies, adhere the acetate piece and stamped the sentiment from Modern Labels. I love all the beautiful sentiment on this set.

For the shaker, I used the Disco Spring Couture Mix and added a little bit of Periwinkle Seed Beads and Fairy Pink Sparkling sequins.

For the flower, I used Peony Cluster Mini. For now, this set is not available for purchase till May 2015. But, you will get it for free with any purchase of $150 and more. I didn’t get a chance to play with it during the release week, and been itching to play with it, because it is a pretty awesome set.

I stamped the image twice, heat embossed them with Rose Gold embossing powder and then color them with Copic. Then die cut them using the coordinating dies and adhere them to the front of the shaker opening.

I hope you find this card as fun and enjoy it as much as I enjoy making it. Well, peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope you all have a beautiful weekend and if you celebrate Easter, happy Easter and may you have a blessed one. Till next time….

Mele kalikimaka!

Hello! Emily here with you today to share some tropical holiday inspiration. I know I can get sick of the same old red and green color combinations, so I thought I would mix it up a little and have some fun with blues, pinks, and mint greens today… It almost reminds me of a hokey tropical shirt, Christmas style. 🙂 Let’s move on to the details!

To start, I heat embossed the Poinsettia Garden background stamp onto some Bristol paper with The Ton’s Rose Gold Embossing Powder. I watercolored the card using my trusty Zig markers and a wet paintbrush, then set it aside to dry. I die cut a rectangular frame using the Stitched Rectangle dies and some Mint Green foil paper, covered the back with acetate, then added foam tape all around the edge for my shaker window.

For the greeting, I used this gorgeous and classy sentiment from Mistletoe Kisses, stamped once in Red Sangria ink, then again (with the help of my MISTI) with Versamark and heat embossed with holographic glitter embossing powder to make it extra sparkly. Now, time to fill the shaker! I wanted a variety of complementary colors that would go well with my holiday tropical shirt background, so I chose Mint Flora Sequins, Peach Whisper, Rose Gold Sequins, Turquoise and Caicos Sequins, and and Mint Pearl Seed Beads. After I had created my shaker mix, I added my acetate window panel over the top, then adhered my greeting over the top of the shaker window, popping it up with dimensional adhesive.

And there you have it! A holiday card that Clark Griswold would probably go nuts for. 🙂 Mele kalikimaka! Hope everybody has a fantastic week and weekend!
