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.

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!

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.

Waltham Egg Shaker Card
by Melissa Rusk

Happy Wednesday! Melissa here, with a fun shaker card using the Waltham Egg die.

IMG_8777wm

On the base of the card, I stamped the solid egg from the Springtime Bunnies stamp set and used a clear embossing powder to create an interesting texture on the card. The background of my shaker egg is a simple watercolor background using distress ink.

IMG_8779wm

I die cut one of the eggs from the Half a Dozen Eggs set to create the window on the front of the card for the shaker. Glue the Waltham Egg on the front of the card after the shaker has been created. Add pearls and ribbon for a final touch.

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

Happy Easter Shaker Card
by Shelby Thomas

Happyeaster2

Good morning Memory Box fans.  Easter, for those who celebrate, is just around the corner, and I'm finally on time for a Holiday!  I've made a shaker card with the wonderful "Happy Easter" die.  I cut the "egg" out of the white panel for the main shape (negative part of the die) and then cut again on paper colored with distress inks for the positive portion of the die.

Happyeaster

The shaker portion was created using the Fuse tool from We R Memory Keepers and then filled with various shaker elements.  I cut the Prairie grass twice for a layered look and then placed the eggs and chicks within the grass.  The paper behind the shaker element was created using distress ink refills and an acrylic block.  The distress colors were peacock feathers, squeezed lemonade and mowed lawn.  The grass was also cut from watercolor paper colored with distress inks using the refills and blocks using mowed lawn and twisted citron.

Thanks for swinging by today for a visit, and I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!

Happy, happy!

Hb-with-tag

Hi Memory Box fans. Penny here today with my most favorite color combo. Love, love, love Lime Green and Navy!!!!

Easy peasy to put together and makes a great "manly" card. The tag is really quite simple to make as Memory Box has virtually done the work for you.

 

For the card I used a White base and started building from there with Navy and then an embossed Lime card stock. Die cut the Paintbrush Happy from Navy and the Breezy Waves from all three card stock colors. Add to card as shown and finish with a stamped sentiment from the Birthday Bunnies set and a few sparkling sequins.

Hb-with-tag-sneak

For the tag I die cut the Stitched Happy Birthday Rectangle from White card stock, then colored the separate areas with Copic markers. Make shaker from a page protector and We R Memories Fuse tool. (Don't forget to add Shaker filler before closing...ask me how I know?!? ) Adhere to back of the Stitched Happy Birthday Rectangle.

HB-tag2

Die cut the smallest of the Stitched Octagon Layers, color and fold in half and attach to the shaker. Punch hole and add matching ribbons.

 

So...what is your favorite color combo? We would love to see what you are creating with the Stitched Happy Birthday Rectangle on our Facebook page.

 

Happy Crafting,

Happy Birthday Shaker
by Lindsay

Hello!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I have a fun Happy Birthday shaker card to share with you, using some of the new Spring Release! Shaker cards can take a bit longer to make than a regular card, but make a great gift for someone special. 

DSC_0016

I started by taking the Stitched Happy Birthday Rectangle, and cut if from white card stock. I then took a few Copic markers, and colored in the letters. I adhered a piece of acetate to the back, and a generous amount of foam tape, before sprinkling in a sequin mix. I then adhered another piece of acetate to hold all of the bits inside. 

DSC_0017

I set the shaker piece aside, and using the Straight Stitches die, ran my card base through repeatedly, creating a patter on the left hand side. I then adhered the shaker box! Now, shake, shake, shake! So fun!

Thanks so much for joining me today! Have a great, and crafty day!
