StampFairy Challenge--a shaker card

EEK! This week at StampFairy Challenges the challenge is to make a shaker card. I have never made one and almost chickened out but figured, that's why it's a challenge so I thought I'd give it a shot.

Okay, I struggled big time with this but only because I messed up my cutting of the image as I should've left more space around it. But I didn't give up and I finished it...next time, hopefully, it'll be easier for me and look better! LOL! 



**edited to add--be sure there are NO gaps, even tiny ones in the foam tape on a shaker card when you use glitter!! I thought I had it sealed good...gave it to Belle this morning and well, now we have a very sparkly kitchen table! LOL! **

The little details~ digi Toby Spring Fairy, copics, My Mind's Eye Tickled Pink, SU scallop punch, Smooch Illuminate, Martha Stewart punch, glitter, flowers, stickles,

Netty said...

So many people are saying they've never made shaker cards before and it is lovely to see that so many have been tempted to try something new. I love your card. Annette xx (Stamp Fairy DT)

Sharon Basel said...

Danni I think this is the most wonderful card! First the papers and colors of your card are so cheery and perfect with Toby Spring Fairy. I love how you created the shaker window with the punches, the stickles to glitter it up and those wonderful flowers on the corners. And I think it amazingly clever to use those tiny butterflies mixed with glitter for the shaky stuff - even though it escaped! This is a fun technique and I'm so glad you tried it for the StampFairy challenge. It really is a fabulous card.
Hugs,
Sharon, SF-DT

Jerusha said...

Kristie said...

Wow, you've never made a shaker before? I used to make them all the time when I first started crafting. Great job trying something new!

ThePurplePlace said...

Hi Danni - I am so proud of your for taking part in this challenge especially since it's brand new to you! I had wanted to play, but simply ran out of time and I even had a Shake it Kit, I had bought specifically to make Shaker Cards. Even so, I thought it was hard and I then never found the time to catch up this week.

It's been such a crazy week and I hardly made any cards, as compared to a good week! BUMMER!!

I hope to try one soon and now that I have the kit, it should be easier!

There is also a good tutorial over at SF, for those who want to learn without using a kit.

I think the kits are pretty new, as they just starting selling them at my LSS and I saw a bunch there yesterday. They are by Impression Obsession and come in variety of colors styles!!

Check them out at http://impression-obsession.com

I think your card is wonderful!!

Hugs,
Lis
