Hello, crafty friend! I am delighted to share a cute set of shaker cards with you today featuring the “Cute Boots” stamp set from Spellbinders. It’s really perfect for the rainy weather we’ve been having here lately.
I started with white paper and used distress inks and shimmer spray & drops to make the wet & stormy background.
The little cuties were given a sunny disposition with bright alcohol marker coloring. There isn’t a die for this set, so I used a pair of detail scissors to trim them out. I also added a bit of white detailing with a gel pen.
A hefty amount of blue and clear iridescent sequins in a variety of sizes was added into the domed shaker area.
I forgot to take a picture of the inside sentiment. I stamped it in black. It says, “when life gives you rainy days wear cute boots and jump in puddles”. How fun is that?! I also stamped a few of the secondary elements like the rainfall and umbrellas around the border with bright complementary ink colors.
Well, that does it for me again. I would love to know about your experience with making shaker cards. If you’d like to check out more of my crafty creations, you can view my Project Gallery join me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and YouTube.
Until next time… stay crafty! – Laura Evangeline
