Rainbow Shaker Card
by Michelle Bala

37

Hello there! Michelle here, sharing a rainbow shaker card! I used the newest Spring 2021 supplies!   

37

I created the card base, a  3 1/2 x 8 1/2  slimline style. I die cut the panel with the Slimline Basic Rectangle Die. 

Center and secure the Arched Collage Die, die cut.  Trim a piece of clear acetate and secure behind the die cut arch. 

Using the same Arched Collage Die, die cut each color of the rainbow. Save the extra cut outs for later projects.

Place each rainbow color into their perspective slot in the die cut panel.  Secure with washi tape.

Turn the panel upside down and add a layer of glue to each color arch. 

Turn panel right side up and center it on top of card base. Press firmly on rainbow arches. After a minute, gently remove washi tape.

Stamp the sentiment in the top, right corner.   Turn die cut panel upside down and add a double layer of foam tape framing out the rainbow.

Scatter a mix of sequins on top of the rainbow. Secure the top, die cut panel over the sequins and rainbow.

Die cut and adhere the butterfly.

Enjoy shaking!

Sending Love Shaker Card
by Michelle Bala

20

Hello there! Michelle here, sharing some of the fun new products for Valentine's Day! I used the largest die from the Scallop Pinpoint Loving Heart Die. This die is perfect for creating a shaker card. I die cut a piece of red cardstock than splattered it with white paint. Set aside to dry. 

18

Next, I used the Pinpoint Burst Plate and embossed a piece of aqua cardstock.  Adhere the embossed panel to the card base. When the top die cut panel is dry, turn it over and adhere a piece of clear acetate to the back. This is the shaker window. Frame out the shaker window panel with a double layer of foam tape and remove all tabs.

19

Sprinkle a mix of sequins onto the aqua cardstock where the shaker window will position.  Adhere the top panel over the sequins.  Last, die cut the sentiment Sending Love Posh Script two times. I used the Holiday Glitter Pad and aqua cardstock to die cut the sentiment. I adhered them together slightly off center. Than adhere the sentiment to the card.

Thanks for stopping by for a peek!

Hope you'll give this shaker a try!

A Winter Forest Shaker Card
by Michelle Bala

38

Hello there! Michelle here. Today I am sharing a shaker card I created using some of the newest collage dies, Pine Tree Collage Die, Wooded Glenn Collage Die, and Little Orchard Collage Die. I chose three coordinating shades of cardstock for the Collage layers. I die cut the tree tops with the Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad. Adhere the tree tops to the tree trunks before layering.
38

I trimmed a piece of clear acetate paper and adhered between the medium shade and darkest shade cardstock.  I filled with coordinating shades of sequins. Adhere all layers. I splattered with white paint to mimic snow.  

38

I embossed the sentiments with silver powder. I used two  of the newest stamp sets, Spirit of Christmas and Berry Wreath.  For a finishing touch I added some sequins.

Pocket Shaker
by Trina Pham

83C43ADF-73D2-4D69-9374-27BF9787D4D6

Hello there.  I have another fun spring scene card to share today.  This time it’s a pocket shaker card.  I apologize for the glare in my photos, but the plastic made it unavoidable.

So I started off by die cutting an A2 size panel from Bristol paper using the largest die from Rectangle Basics.  Adhered a few die-cut puffy cloud masks then ink blended Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac distress inks (di’s) with blender brushes to create the background.  Die cut the center with a rectangle die that is the same size as the frame in the Cherry Blossom Frame.  Wanted the shaker portion to stand out more, ink blended Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch di’s to it.  Mounted the remaining frame to a white card base.

7DF35C55-F5B9-4029-BF2E-0BA0105EF3E0

A plastic stamp storage pocket was then cut open and trimmed to slightly larger than the cut out rectangle.  Added strong double-sided tape to the edges on the back and positioned it over the plastic to use as a guide to cut away the corners of the plastic.  The corners will be mitred when folded over, which will reduce bulk.

847D45B8-96EB-4A58-89B0-D7E03742C5C0

Removed the adhesive liners from three sides and folded the plastic onto them.  Added the shaker mix through the opening then sealed it off to complete the shaker pouch.  Inlaid the pouch onto the card.

7FDAEA55-2108-45BB-A382-1203E001A872

To complete the scene, die cut the frame, branch and grass from Bristol paper and butterflies from glitter paper.  Colored with Copics then adhered them directly onto the plastic with either strong double-sided tape or liquid glue.

Thought it didn’t need a sentiment.  Or I could always add it later, so left it blank to finish.

I love not needing foam tape.  This makes it very mail-friendly.  And that’s it for me.  Thank you for dropping by.  Stay home and craft on!

Joy to the World
by Michelle Bala

26

Hello there! Michelle here, with a cute shaker card! I used the Petite Leaf Frame Die, Joy Airy Script Die, and

Merry and Bright Mistletoe Stamp Set.

28

I started off by inking up a piece of smooth Bristol cardstock with bundled sage distress oxide ink. Die cut the frame. I die cut the frame two times 

for extra leaves. I added color to the leaves with Copic Markers in shades YG61, YG63, and YG67.  I die cut the Joy sentiment and added

some shimmer with Stickles glitter glue in red. Set aside to dry. Emboss and trim the type sentiment.

27

To assemble the card, turn the leaf frame upside down and adhere a piece of clear acetate as your shaker window. Than, 

apply foam tape along the perimeter of the frame ( both squares) and all the tiny leaves.  For the shaker sequins, I like to place them

on the card base in a small cluster than place the frame on top so I can center the frame. Lastly, add the sentiments. For a finishing touch

I added some bells and twine. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Wish For This Day
by Michelle Bala

Hello there! Michelle Bala here with my first blog post for Memory Box! 

I created a slim line shaker card. These cards measure 3 1/2 by 8 1/2. 

Create your card base at 31/2 by 8 1/2. Trim your top layer with the same measurement.

Ink up this panel using shaded lilac, wilted violet and chipped sapphire distress oxide inks. 

Splatter with some water than white paint.  Allow to dry.  I stamped the branches from Winter Greenery

Stamp Set with forest moss and evergreen bough distress oxide inks. Die cut the branches than set aside.

After the top panel has dried use the smallest star from Shining Star Die Set and cut four 

windows.  Trim acetate and adhere behind the star windows.  Ink up a piece of cardstock with

evergreen bough and die cut with Wish Airy Script word die. Emboss and trim the sentiment from the 

stamp set Grateful Autumn.

Using foam tape, adhere the top panel to the card base. Be sure to add shaker sequins before. 

Adhere the die cut branches and trim off  edges. Adhere die cut sentiment and embossed sentiment. 

For a finishing touch I added some rhinestones and glitter glue. 

Hope you give it a try!

Shaker Card Fun
by Melissa Rusk

Hi friends! Today I have a fun take on a shaker card using one of my favorite dies from the Spring release, the Underwater Scene die.

IMG_9965

To switch things up on this card I cut out a circle on the front of my card that was a little bit bigger than the Underwater Scene die and then I glued my shaker to the inside of the card. Such a fun change!
IMG_9965

I die cut everything in white and then colored the background circle in a deep teal color with a blending brush and some ink. I sprayed it with a mist of water to create some droplets of lighter color. This can be done with most dye inks.
IMG_9965

I built the shaker by gluing the Underwater Scene to a piece of acetate. Then I added two layers of foam tape around the edge of the frame and then put in some sequins. I sealed it up with the teal circle and then glued it to the inside of the card.

The birthday fishes sentiment from the Oceanside Typewriter Sentiments set finishes it off!

Thanks for stopping by the blog, have a wonderful day!

Be Jolly Shaker Card
by Isha Gupta

Hello and Welcome! It's Isha with you today. Are you enjoying the new Holiday release products? They are AWESOME isn't it? I just started playing with them and it's so difficult to stop.  Have you started creating your Christmas cards already? We have a wide range of dies and not to forget the adorable stamps too :)

So, for today's card I used the All Heart Snowman as my main focal image and created a shaker card with it. FUN!!!

Isha_MB_Aug18_Card1

I started by making a square top fold card. I then sponged it using distress oxide inks for an Ombrè effect. Once I was happy with the background, I flicked some gold color shine onto it and let it dry. Meanwhile, I die-cut the dainty circle frame using the Wrapped Holly Circle Frame die and applied Tsukineko Delicata gold ink to it to match it with the gold splatters.

Now I die-cut the All Heart Snowman, I colored the nose and the heart using copic markers and kept them aside. I then die-cut this piece in a circle to fit in behind the circle frame.

Now I adhered the acetate piece onto the back side of this focal piece. I adhered 3D foam tape onto the acetate and made sure not to leave any gaps in between so the shaker materiel stays inside the 3d foam well. Now I filled the shaker area using chunky glitter and some iridescent stars. I closed this using another piece of acetate.

Now I adhered this piece to the cardbase and added the circle frame to it. Finally, I stamped the sentiment using the black ink and adhered the colored heart and the nose.

 

Here is a close up.

Hope you got inspired from today's card. Have a wonderful crafty day!

Swirling Ghost
by Shelby

Boo2

Good morning everyone!  The nights are definitely getting cooler and the days just a little shorter which means Fall is definitely on the way with Halloween right around the corner. I love the warm colors of Fall and used them for today's Halloween themed shaker card.

Boo

The background was done with Distress Paints (barn door, mustard seed and carved pumpkin) and water creating a marbling effect.  I inked up the edges with Black Soot to tone down the colors.  The Swirling Ghost Circle die is a die whose cut is meant to stay in the paper so I used that for my shaker window.  I then cut another Swirling Ghost Circle from white paper and cut out the ghost portion and adhered to the in the paper cut. I discovered a whole bin of googly eyes I had stashed away in a dark corner of my craft room and popped some on the largest ghost to increase the cuteness factor!

Boo3

I added a few more of these stinkin cute ghosts from the Swirling Ghost die and then stamped the word Boo over top with black archival ink to finish it off. Thanks for stopping by for a visit today!

You're one in a melon!
by Shelby Thomas

Watermelon2

Good morning Memory Box fans!  I hope you're enjoying the new release and getting a little inspiration! On June 4th, 5 random people (from the comment sections) will be chosen to win their choice of one of the new releases.  So the more comments you leave this week on the posts, the greater your chances are of winning....easy peasy:)

Watermelon

For today's card I used the stamp set, Thanks a Melon and the coordinating die set, to great a fun summery shaker card.  The watermelon pieces were stamped with MFT hybrid ink and then colored with Copics.  The background was created using distress inks (twisted citron, mowed lawn and spun sugar).  I created the shaker element using the FUSE tool from We R Memory keepers.  Love that tool and how easy it is to make the shaker elements.

Watermelon3

The sentiment, also included in the set, was stamped with versafine in black using the MISTI.

Thanks for popping in for a visit today, and don't forget to visit later today for another fabulous creation by Melissa.
