Shaker Card Fun with Sweet Stamp Shop and Doodlebug

Lest we forget on this ANZAC DAY 2015…..Hubby and my eldest attended an ANZAC day service in our local town while I stayed at home snuggled in bed with my youngest. It’s so cold here at the moment and it’s not even winter yet! I had to get into my craft room and put some brightness back into my day! I knew exactly what i wanted to use and that was the new Doodlebug Design Collection Sunkissed. I love this collection for all it’s summer time themes and the colours are so bright and cheerful! I thought I’d make some Shaker Cards to add to the fun..Shaker cards are a lot of fun to make and add something unique to the front of a card or a project life page.

For the first card, I used the Sweet Stamp shop Beach Bum Stamp Set and stamped lots of the beach balls and sand buckets and spades, and a sandcastle onto X press it Blending card and coloured in with my Copics. I then cut a template for the stripes from a scrap piece of card stock, traced and then cut again using the stripes paper from the 6×6 Sunkissed paper pad. Next I adhered some acetate to the back of the paper, placed some foam tape around the edges of the template so the sandcastle, beach balls and buckets didn’t fall out when i placed them into each open stripe. I finished the card off by sticking the small polka dot paper onto the tape to hold the bits and pieces in and matted using the blue paper. I added some Enamel dots, paper twine and a stamp to finish it off.

So much fun seeing the balls and the buckets sliding around when you shake the card!

The next card I made I used some Nesting Circles and scollop circles to cut out my circles and scolloped border. Using the same technique of acetate, foam tape and some card stock on the back, I added some colourful sequins to the middle. Finishing the card with a Sunshine from the Sunkissed icons Sticker sheet, a few enamel dots and the same stamp. I love the noise this makes when you shake it around!
