Our challenge was to create using a Fall theme and it must be a Shaker....so I used GKD's Showtime Stamp sets "signs of autumn" and "thanks a million".
You should have come from Miesje's Blog Weren't her shakers amazing!! and You can always start the hop right from STV...
This first card is the one I had done last week for this hop prior to my new grandaughter being born..had intended to embellish it more but kinda like it with sentiment being the focal. Cardstock is GKD's Green Grass and dp is Basic Grey's "Pyrus"
i know - i did a green pumpkin..but i wanted to use that gorgeous orange mesh stuff and thought it was too much orange if I framed my shaker using orange also...
TIP: dont use popcorn for a shaker - i had to triple stack my pop dots!!! grooooaaannnnn....
so after being gone a few days, when I came home the other night my craft desk still had everything out from making the above card...so I made another one before putting everything away...here you go!
the cardstock is GKD's Sand
used the red, yellow and gold Gelato's (love working with those, thanks Jennie!)
shaker is filled with Gala Glitz gold...pic doesnt show the leafs in the shaker stamped lighter
TIP: if you dont have those pop dots sitting tight next to each other, the tiny beads in the glitz come rolling out...what a mess!!!
so I am DONE doing Shaker Cards for awhile.... now that you have a couple tips on what NOT to use LOL...head over to STV and enjoy Gina's Tutorial on Creating a Shaker Card they really are easy
I made it difficult on myself (-:
now your next stop is over to Karen's wonderful blog She has no problem creating shakers ...
thanks so much for joining in our hop...hope you are getting some inspiration and looking forward to seeing your shaker card over on STV!
