Long Shaker Card Feat. Mama Elephant The Birthday Bash (SSS Wednesday Challenge)

Hey crafty friends! Today is my last blog post and video as a Designer in the Spotlight at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. Yay! πŸ˜„

Are you ready for a new challenge? I sure am! This week’s challenge is Anything Goes. Easy! πŸ˜„ I decided to create a card using the Birthday Bash Stamp Set from Mama Elephant. I decided to create a long, super sparkly shaker card! πŸ’›

Make sure to watch the video below to see how I made this cute card.

When I started making this card, I honestly didn’t know what I was doing because I’ve never made a shaker using the stamp(s) as well as the coordinating die(s). 😳 So, I had to experiment a little bit and just went with it. However, I had so much fun making this card! And guess what? Jennifer McGuire recently did a video on how to make Stamped Shaker Cards. Oh, if I only knew that before I filmed my video. πŸ˜… It could have saved me a lot of time.

First, I stamped the big image from The Birthday Bash Stamp Set from Mama Elephant with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Neenah 110 lb Solar White Card Stock. This might be one of my favorite stamp sets EVER! 😍 Look at those adorable critters. So much cuteness. I colored the entire image with Copic Sketch Markers.

Then, I took a piece of white card stock and cut it to 9″ x 3,5″. I used the coordinating die from The Birthday Bash Set to cut out my shaker window. Of course I had to add some color so I grabbed Spun Sugar Oxide Ink, did some ink blending and added a few water splatters here and there.

Next, it was time to create the actual shaker! The easiest way to do this is to die cut your shaker shape twice out of Fun Foam. This way, the sequins will have plenty of room to shake around. I adhered both layers on top of each other with Tonic Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and a Tonic Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen.

I filled up the shaker with some clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and Tonic Studios. I also used some super fun confetti sequins from Lucy’s Cards. Finally, I heat embossed a sentiment banner using Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from WOW and added color to it with Spun Sugar Oxide Ink. πŸ’•

Thanks so much for stopping by. Big hugs!
