Hi there it’s Tracey back here today with a shaker card featuring the Bearing Gifts stamp set.
I started off by stenciling the Studio Katia Bubbles stencil on to the front of my card base using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink using the Studio Katia Blending Brushes. I blended the colour over the stencil the darkest in the centre getting lighter out near the edges.
I used the Dotted Patterns Set 4 die for my shaker on this card. Do you ever difficulty getting your shaker panel perfectly lined up on your card front? I tried a different method when building the shaker component on my card today. I die cut two of the Dotted Patterns Set 4 die and used Studio Katia glue to stick one down to my card exactly where I wanted my shaker to be. Then using it as a guide I built my shaker walls up using two layers of Studio Katia Foam Tape. I used my embossing buddy were within the walls of my shaker. I always seem to have static problems. I filled my shaker with Summer Fusion sequins, Crystal Stars and Iridescent Crystals.
The Studio Katia Acetate sheets are 6″ x 6″, perfect weight and crystal clear. I cut a piece to fit behind the shaker opening then I removed the baker on the foam tape and adhered the acetate on the top onto the shaker. Then I added my white top shaker piece over the acetate and it lined up perfectly because I could see where I was putting it.
I stamped Kobi bear and three balloons from the Bearing Gifts stamp set with Copic friendly ink. I cut the images out with the co-ordinating Bearing Gifts die set after I did some pretty simple one shade colouring with Copic makers. The balloons were adhered directly to the shaker and then Kobi bear and all the parcels on top with foam with foam tape.
I absolutely love my Studio Katia Halftone Lines cover die it is so clever. It cuts 13 strips of cardstock at one time in different widths but all are 5 1/2″ tall. Perfect to use for sentiment strips or they can be used to create a fun background. I stamped and white embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Bearing Gifts stamp set onto a black strip created with the Halftone Lines cover die. I trimmed it down and added it to the card with one layer of foam tap.
TIME SAVING TIP: I used the Halftone Lines cover die to cut one panel of white and one of black giving me 13 sentiment strips in each colour. I just popped them in the package with the die so I have some all ready to go when I am creating cards.
Thank you so much for stopping in today to create with me. Hope you are staying well and have a great week ahead.
