Hi, friends! On Monday, my crafty friend Marika visited me. We made a card together and had so much fun. 😄 We decided to make a Springtime Shaker Card with Hello Bluebird Stamps and Dies along with two terrific stencils from My Favorite Things.

Make sure to watch the video below for tips and tricks on how to make this card.

First, I stamped and colored images from the Springtime and McGregor’s Garden Stamp Sets from Hello Bluebird. Like I mentioned in the video, my coloring technique is beginner friendly and super fun to do!

Next, I created a scene with the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil from My Favorite Things along with their Grassy Edges Stencil. Of course I used Distress Oxide Inks to do the blending. These inks are such a joy to work with! 😍

Afterwards, I made the frame for my shaker using a die cut from the Stitched Rectangles Die Cut Set from Lawn Fawn. This time I used Scotch Foam Mounting Tape to add dimension instead of Fun Foam and liquid adhesive. However, both ways work! Finally, I filled up the shaker with the Pink Lemonade Couture Mix from The Ton along with Sparkling Clear and Lime Sorbet Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Hi, again! Last week, Kristina Werner shared a video on how to create a super easy shaker card. She uses foam tape, doubles it back on itself and then removes the release paper. This inspired me to create my own blog post on my favorite technique to make sequin shaker cards. 😄

In the video, I’m showing you how to make a clean and simple shaker card with acetate, foam sheets and liquid adhesive.

I don’t have any foam tape so whenever I make a shaker, I like to use Fun Foam. These are white foam sheets that are easy to cut to any shape. You can also use die cuts with it to match the shape of your shaker window. In the past I made shaker cards with foam tape, but the sequins always tended to stick to the edges even though I used kitchen flour or anti-cling powder to take the stickiness away.

I filled up my shaker with the Belle’s Dress Couture Sequin Mix from The Ton. This mix is just so pretty! I love that shade of yellow and the small gold sequins and teeny tiny flowers are great eye-catchers. To add even more sparkle to this shaker, I also added some Crystal Cloud Circles Confetti from Tonic. 💛

A couple of weeks ago, I shared a card made with Hello Bluebird stamps. I promised I would share more cards featuring these fun products, so here you go! 😀 I used the McGregor’s Garden set again. That little bunny holding the flower pot makes me so happy. He looks adorable. I also colored two of the small birds to match with the sequin shaker. 🐥

That’s it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by. I’ll see you soon. Big hugs. 💌

Hi, crafty friends! Sorry I’ve been MIA lately. But guess what? On Tuesday, I’ll be finishing up my 9-week internship at kindergarten. I’ve had so much fun and I’m sad to say goodbye to the kids, but I’m looking forward to graduating in June and more crafty time this Summer Break. 💛

While my internship has been keeping me busy, I’ve had the chance to check social media now and then. I’m always on the hunt for new product that makes me happy so when I saw Hello Bluebird’s feed pop up, I was giddy. Talk about cuteness overload. 😍 I picked out a few stamps for upcoming blog posts and video tutorials.

For this card, I mixed and matched different designs. I used McGregor’s Garden and Springtime to create a cute Spring themed scene. I also created my own patterned paper with the Country Gingham Background.

Stamped Springtime Scene Ft. Hello Bluebird Stamps

I started by stamping a flower from the Springtime stamp from Hello Bluebird. Then I used masking paper and slowly built up the scene. When masking, remember you want to stamp the images you want to be at the front first and take your time to fussy cut the paper. It’s quite therapeutic. 🙃 I combined the Springtime set with McGregor’s Garden. I love how these stamps can be mixed and matched!

Stamped Springtime Scene Ft. Hello Bluebird Stamps

After coloring my masked Spring-themed scene, I created my own patterned paper with the Country Gingham Background stamp from Hello Bluebird. I simply heat embossed the pattern with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from WOW and added color with Distress Oxide in Squeezed Lemonade. These inks blend like butter!

Finally, I added some sparkly touches here and there with a Tonic Nuvo Aqua Flow Pen in Glitter Gloss and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I 💛 my Tonic products.

That’s it for now! I’ll be back soon. Big hugs. 💌
