Snowflake Shaker Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I have a another snow globe shaped card but this is an actual shaker card.  The Nested Globe dies make it easy to create snow globe shaker cards.  



Die cut the 3rd larges die from the Nested Globe die set from white card stock  Ink blend with Elements Della Blue allover and then around the edges with Dark Denim.  Heat dry completely.  White heat emboss the Aurora Snowflake stamp.  Then stencil the Snow Flurries stencil with white pigment ink .  


Take an A2 black side folder card and line up the largest die from the Nested Globe die set so the left side edge does not cut the fold and run through the die cutting machine.  Take the largest and 3rd largest Nested Globe dies and die cut a frame from black card stock.  Adhere a piece of acetate behind the frame die cut.  



Adhere the background to the center of the shaker card.  Then add black foam tape around the edges.  Fill with Distress Mica Flakes.  Then remove the backing from the foam tape and adhere the frame.  Die cut the Celeste Snowflake Trio from white card stock and adhere the largest die cut to the center and the 2 smaller on the frame.  Adhere a Merry Christmas Black Greet Tabs to the center of the snowflake.

Aurora Snowflake Shaker
Trina Pham


Hello there.  I have a super easy white-on-white snowflake shaker card to share today featuring the Aurora Snowflake die from the 2023 Christmas collection.  It’s my first true white-on-white card since I did’t cave and use silver for my sentiment!

Started by die cutting the snowflake opening in the center of a 4x5.25-inch white woodgrain paper panel using the background shadow die.  Adhered a piece of acetate behind it then added foam strips on the perimeter to create the well in which to house the shaker bits.  Add the shaker bits and then seal it in with a piece of cardstock. 


Die cut the snowflake itself from white glitter paper.  White heat embossed the sentiment onto vellum then punched it out with a 3/4-inch circle punch.  Assembled onto a white card base to finish.


And that’s a wrap.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.IMG_0323

Snowflake Shaker
by Trina Pham


Hello everyone.  I have a simple snowflake shaker card to share today using the Gloriette Snowflake Collage die from the current 2022 Christmas release.

Started by doing an ombré watercolor wash background on watercolor paper using Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo and Picked Raspberry distress inks. Once it was dry, used the outline snowflake die to die cut an opening.  Backed the opening with acetate, then die cut the detailed snowflake from white glitter paper.  Adhered the glitter snowflake on the acetate within the snowflake outline opening.  


Flipped over to the backside and added foam tape around the snowflake to create a “reservoir” for the shaker bits.  To help prevent the shaker bits from sticking, applied an anti static powder along the foam tape.  Removed the foam adhesive lining and filled the reservoir with a combination of clear drops and sequins.  Covered the back with a piece of Bristol paper.  White heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock, then assembled the card onto a white card base to finish.  


Before I go, I want to wish my fellow Canadians a happy Thanksgiving today.  Thank you for joining me.  Have a wonderful day.

Butterfly Birthday Shaker
by Trina Pham


Hello there!  It’s been a while since I last posted, I almost forgot how.  😂*lol*   Anyway, I have a fun and simple birthday shaker card to share today featuring the Butterfly Coterie Collage and Posh Birthday Wishes dies from the May 2022 release.

Started by trimming two A2 size panels from Bristol paper.  Took one of them and die cut from it twice with the butterfly die to stretch the butterflies across from corner to corner.  The Posh Birthday Wishes foil plate was then hot foiled in black using the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System, and die cut out with the matching die.


On the other panel, ink blended Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry, Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Citron distress inks before prepping it for an infinity shaker to go behind the butterfly panel.  To minimize bulk. the small clear Fairy Drops were separated out and used for the shaker bits.  Assembled the card onto a white card base to finish,  


That does it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today,  Have a wonderful day.

Pretty Pink Valentine's Shaker Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I have another flat shaker card using the Verdant Leaf Collage and Cottage Flower Stem.  This is an simple and quick card to recreate that is fun for the recipient.



Die cut the Verdant Leaf Collage die from a light pink/purple paper from Vibrant Violet pad.  Die cut the Sprinkle Heart Collage die from the darker shade of the same hue paper.  Adhere the hearts around the frame and sides one either side, leaving the bottom free of hearts.  Die cut Sending Love Posh Script die from a med tone matching glitter paper from the Graceful Garden Glitter pad.  Adhere to the bottom of the frame.  Add a matching gem from Autumn Fairy Jewels to the top of the Sending Love die. 



Die cut the Cottage Flower Stem from the same color as the frame and heart die cut, light pink/purple paper from Vibrant Violet pad.  Trim the stem off the Cottage Flower.  Shape the bottom and second layer. Glue the second layer to the bottom layer just in the center.  Add a yellow Autumn Fairy Crystal to the center.  Adhere the flower to the leaves from the Verdant Leaf Collage.


Shaker background:

Cut a darker hue from the same pink/purple paper from Vibrant Violet pad slightly smaller then A2 size card panel.  Take a plastic package sleeve from a die and trim down around 6" x 7 1/4".  Add double sided adhesive to the back of the card panel.  Remove 3 sides adhesive backings and tightly wrap the plastic around the panel.  Trim down the corners diagonally on each corner.  Add matching glitter to the open side. Remove the backing and seal the last side.



Adhere the frame to the shaker with double sided tape.  Adhere the shaker to the front of a A2 size card.

New Year’s Shaker
by Trina Pham


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.  



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. 



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.


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**


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


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.


This is the Grand Spiral Shell.

Thanks for stopping by!

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.

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


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


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! 


Thanks for peeking! Hope you enjoy the rest of your week!!
