Jan ’22 Club Sursee: Stamp-a-Doodle

Hello, there! I am back today to share another card I created with this month’s Catherine Pooler Designs Club Sursee stamps & dies. If you missed the first one, you can see that HERE. Let me show you how I created this fun little shaker…

To start, I inked up the Stamp-a-Doodle background stamp with embossing ink and stamped it twice side-by-side on a white card panel & heat embossed it in white.

I then used a blending brush to pick up ink and brush over the embossed area to create an ombre background. The inks I used from left to right are Sixteen Candles, Oh Boy, and Minted.

I chose a sentiment from the Love-a-Phants stamp set & masked off the word “Love!” before stamping it in black. I then masked off the rest of the words and used foam daubers to ink up the word “LOVE!” to create a matching ombre effect.

I die cut the sentiment using a rectangle die from the Scallops & Dots die set.

I trimmed down the panel, so I would have a white border around my card, and slid it into a clear pocket to create a shaker card. This pocket was created using old stamp & die packaging I would have otherwise thrown in the garbage.

Before sealing the pocket I added Paris sequins and a few inked hearts cut from the Hearts-n-Tags die set.

Finally, I added the shaker element to the card base using foam adhesive.

Since I had several die cut daisies on my desk left over from playing with the new Doodle Flower dies, I decided to make a few shaker tags.

I die cut the shaker elements with the Skyscape Mini Cover Plate die and used left over bits of Under the Eifel Tower patterned paper. I stamped the background image and sentiment using the Stamp-a-Doodle stamp set, and once again used the Paris sequins mix for the filler.

These tags came together so quickly, I think I might make a couple dozen more to use for this year’s Valentine goodies. I really hope you enjoyed these as much as I have. I cant wait to share with you what’s in store for next month’s Club Sursee. You aren’t going to believe how cute it is!
