‘Leftover’ Rainbow Shaker Card | MFT Stamps

I love making 2 for 1 cards! More bang for your time, so why not! I shared a CAS card a while back and decided to save the negative space and use it and create a shaker! I was so quick and easy to put together, and it’s a birthday card that I always need a million of LOL!

As I mentioned, I created this card from a negative die cut left over using My Favorite Things Celebrate with Cake Die. I used Distress Oxide Inks in Worn LipstickWild HoneyTwisted CitronPeacock Feathers, and Wilted Violet. I splatted it with water and dried it with a towel, before die cutting! Then I embossed the sentiment from the My Favorite Things Celebrate Everything stamp set using black embossing powder. Next I back it with some acetate and filled it with sequins.

I finished off the card by die cutting some flames from some scrap cardstock backed with low tack tape so it stays in place so that I could color it using copic markers in Y13 and Y38. Once adhered to the card front, I added some glossy accents to give it some dimension.

Thanks for following along today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something! 

Happy Crafting!


Bunch of Balloons Shaker Card | Spellbinders

Summer was BUSY! As fun as it was, I am ready for football season, rainy crafty nights in and pumpkin patches! I have a thing for rainbows, plus I have a bunch of card from the summer that never made it on to my blog, so you’ll see a few of them pop up once in a while, like today!

I created this card for ScrapbookPal a few months ago and all most products are still available! Birthday cards are my most used cards, and I love being able to create gender neutral ones too!

I started my choosing out my dies from the Spellbinders Color Block Balloons and trimming down a piece of white cardstock to an A2 size.

I die cut the largest balloon from the A2 sized cardstock, saving both sides to use for a shaker. I cut the remaining pieces from a single sheet.

I colored the die cut pieces using copic markers.

I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Spellbinders It’s Party Time stamp set in black on to the card front.

I added acetate to the back of the card front and added A LOT of foam tape to create the shaker, and added the matching balloon on to the shaker back so it peeks through!

I added the remaining balloons and the strings! Don’t forget to trim the ends off!

Thanks for following along today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something! 

Happy Crafting!
