New Year’s Shaker
by Trina Pham

DB8250CD-6CD4-44E1-BAE3-1C190FB4A755

Hello and happy Boxing Day!  Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.   Now that Christmas is over, my card today focuses on the next big celebration.  And since the edge-to-edge or infinity or pocket or frameless or flat shaker card (yes, it is known by all these names!) is so popular right now, I thought they pair well together.

3 things come to mind when I think of new year’s - glitz, glam and gold! 😉  Started by creating a golden bokeh background on watercolor paper.  Using the wet-on-wet technique, applied clean water to the entire watercolor panel, then randomly dropped in various colours of yellow
from my Gansai Tambi" watercolor paints.  Once dried, used DIY circle stencils from my stash to add white pigment ink and white gouache paint with a sponge dauber through these stencils.   Trimmed the panel down to A2 size and spritz with a shimmer spray for some sparkle.

Next, a piece of clear plastic was trimmed to slightly larger than A2 size.   Added strong double-sided tape along the four sides on the back of the panel.   Remove the release paper from three sides and fold the plastic over and secure.  This will create a pocket with the opening on one end.  Add in the shaker bits , then close off the final side.

Mounted the shaker panel to a white card base.   Die cut the letters from gold glitter paper, then adhered on top of the plastic to finish.

Thank you for joining me today.  Have a safe and happy new year!  See you next year!

Snowman Shaker Tag
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  Counting down the days until Christmas.  Time to start holiday gift tags for me.  I have a shaker tag using the Nested Globe dies and the Snowman House Frame die set.  

 

Background:

Adhere the Poppy Stamps Flurries Wide Washi Tape to a light blue from the Ocean Blue paper pack. Then die cut the 3rd largest die from the Nested Globe die set.  On the back side use a white paint pen and write To and From.  You can also use a embossing pen and use white embossing powder.  Die cut the same Globe die from acetate. 

120E2CDA-1F0E-4FAE-8FD8-74D5BC312588_1_201_a

Base:

Die cut the largest die from the Snowglobe Bases from Kraft Woodgrain card stock 2 times.  Ink blend the base with Distress Antique Linen and then Gathered Twigs to just around the outside edges.

Shaker Frame:

Take the 3rd and 4th largest die from the Nested Globe die set to create a frame.  Die cut the frame from white scrap card stock 3 times.  Die cut the frame from the white Polished Foil pad.   Glue the 3 frames together with thick glue, making sure there is glue everywhere.  Also glue in string in-between one of the layers.  Take 1 of the inside pieces of the scrap white card stock and trim about 1" off with a hill shape to create a snow bank.  Ink blend with Fresh Ink Silicone Blue at the bottom of the snowbank.

BFAC41B7-F0FF-461A-A1A0-42D891D47D55

Snowman House Frame:

Die cut the snowman and trees from white card stock.  Ink blend Distress Rustic Wilderness on the tree die cuts from the top down leaving the bottom white to make it look like stock.  Ink blend Fresh Ink Silicone Blue around the snow man. Mask off the snowman body and color the snowman arms with a brown watercolor marker.  Color the hat black, nose, and the scarf red or any other color you choose using watercolor markers.  ** Trick to fix inky mistake.  I got ink on the snowman so I took a white Gell pen and colored the full die cut to hide it**

Assembly:

Glue the stacked shaker frames on top of the background.  Glue in the snowbank, Trees and snowman.  Add Distress Rock Candy glitter.  Glue the acetate die cut then the frame die cut form the white foil paper.  Glue 1 of the snow globe base die cut on front. Cut 4 strips of scrap paper the length of the snow glove base and glue behind the shaker base. Glue the other snow globe base the the backside for a finished look on the backside.  Die cut the top Let It Snow Posh Script die from white Festive Glitter paper. Adhere to the front on the snow globe base.

Sea Shell Shaker cards and Coordinating Tags
by Michelle Bala

30

Hello there! i'm so happy to be sharing some the newest Under the Sea products!!! Today I am using three Grand Shell Dies and created shaker cards and coordinating tags. All the Grand Shell Dies come with two dies, a shell body die and an outline die.  I used Copic Markers to color the shell outlines of the shaker cards and distress oxide inks to color the shell body's. All sentiments are from the stamp set Joyful Moments. I used the Polished Foil Paper Pad to die cut the shell outline for the tags. I added some Pastel Jewel Rhinestones.

This first shell is the Grand Tulip Shell.

This is the Grand Scallop Shell.

Floral Shaker Card with Video
by Sara Cook

Welcome everyone.  Hope you're ready for some creativity.  I have a floral shaker card featuring the Stained Glass Floral die cut from the spring release.  I have a video for this card as well, link is below.

Watermark test image20210226_130043

Start by die cutting the Stained Glass Floral die out of 110lb white card stock, twice.  Keep 1 set of the flower petals and leaves.  Use Washi or low tack tape to secure the petals and leaves back into the die cut.  Color each petal using Copic markers, YR07 for the dark tone and YR02 for the light tone.  Flick the darker orange from the bottom of each petal to the middle leaving streaks.  Use the light tone, YR02, and blend from the bottom to the top.  Take the YR07 and color just at the bottom on each petal.  For the center of the flow use Copi Y00.  Don't worry about any extra color on the outside of the die cut, that is why the other die cut is for. For each leaf use the same technique with YG03 the dark tone and YG11 as the light tone.  Glue the other die cut on top.

For the top paper of the shaker card, choose a paid pattern from Madras Plaid Coral and Green. I chose one with grid lines and centered the die in the middle.  Cut the paper to 4"x51/4", keeping a 3/4" boarder from the cut out on each side and top of the paper. Glue acetate on the back side making sure to cover the square cut out.  Glue on the Stained Glass Floral die cut on the shaker window.

Watermark test image20210226_130216

On the back side of the plaid paper add double sided adhesive around the cut out.  Make sure not to leave any gaps.  Create a top fold A2 card out of 110lb while card stock.  Place the shaker element in the center of the card base.  I used HAI Supply TMM Cherry Blossoms.  Remove the bacon from the foam tape, center, and place on the card base.

Die cut Glade butterfly base out of white 80lb card stock and the top die from the darker gold from Polished Fold Pad.  Color the butterfly base with Copics.  Go from darker on the outside to lighter on the inside blending the colors.  Darkest is YR02, then R20, and Y00.  Glue the gold top to the bottom. 

Die cut Just a Note Posh Script bottom die out of 110lb card stock and top die from the darker gold from Polished Fold Pad.  Glue the top die cut on the bottom. 

Glue the sentiment below the shaker window and the butterfly in the bottom right hand corner pop the shaker window

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!

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!
