This week i cleaned out my craft room, and sorted my sequins into new storage containers… and i realised that i have sooooooo many sequins. I thought that i would make some shakers tonight – and i wasn’t going to skimp on the shakey bits!
First up, i created a three panel shaker card with a rectangle die on a A2 card. I used my distress oxides to create a fun blue background inside the shaker panels.
I added some critters from Lawn Fawn to swim in my shaker sea, and then added a Simon Says Stamp hello die to my card. I added some red ink to the top of the pink die cut, to mimic the cute octopussy.
Next up- a baby card, because my sister-in-law is being induced today! Weeeee! I can’t wait to find out if we are getting a new niece or a new nephew. If its a girl, then i am all set with this card! First up, i used a Mama Elephant heart die to create three heart apertures and added lots of sequins behind.
I used a sentiment from a Paula Pascual stamp set, but replaced the work baby with the Heffy Doodle Baby Heffy cuts die. I stacked up a few layers to give it some dimension. So cute!
So technically, this is not a shaker card at all, but it was inspired by shakers. I used some dies from Studio Katia to create a frame, and then from the inside piece, i used the Heffy Doodle stitched strips of ease dies to cut strips out of this section. Then I replaced every other strip when i stuck it all down onto some acetate.
Through the windows, I created my own rainbow using lots of buttons – another surplus in my craft stash! To turn this into a card (and to hide the fact that the last strip was wider than the rest! teehee) I added a cute leprechaun from Heffy Doodle -layered on some black craft foam. I also used the Good Luck die from the Heffy Doodle clover frames dies. I love this card a lot!

Lovely shaker cards !!
