‘Tis the Season


Is it too early to start creating Christmas Cards?

Last week we created a shaker card using the Jar of Love Stamp Set, the Everyday Jar Framelits along with the Home for Christmas Stamp Set & the Hometown Greetings Edgelits.  I will be honest & say since purchasing the Everyday Jar Framelits I’ve wanted to create one of these cards so this was the perfect opportunity to do so.  The class loved it!  Something a little different & one that you can use for all occasions.  Don’t forget to try different shapes for your shaker cards.

My “Claytons” Shaker Card

When is a Shaker Card not a Shaker Card?  When it’s one I created & forgot to add my glitter & bling!!!!!  It wasn’t until I got it together that I realised I had forgotten to add all my shaker bits.

I’ve used the FREE “Widlflower Fields” DSP which is available through SAB.  The Scalloped Edge has been created using the Scallop Edge Framelit (Retired).  The window was created using the Word Bubbles Framelits (Retired).  Any of which can easily be substituted for different Framelits, Dies or Punches & Ribbon.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Shaker Card….

We finally managed to create a “Shaker Card” today in Crafty Creations.  A lot of laughs & giggles as everyone’s was different!  Isn’t it amazing how we all have the same kit, yet create something entirely different – which I don’t mind, as I think it is great that so many people can create a different card from the one next to them.

One of the ladies loaned me a magazine some time ago so that we could have a go at doing one of these cards.  I’ve had this card sitting in my “Crafty Creations” box for some time & finally managed to get it completed.  There are weeks that I am usually about 3 weeks ahead, BUT there are weeks where I am quickly creating the card the morning of the class.

The jury is still out on this card.  I love the products I used to create it, but I think if I was to do it again, I would add another layer.  It is very hard for me to create single layers – I always feel like there is something missing.

I don’t have a tutorial today as I’ve posted this card off in the mail sometime ago.

SC 067/12….

What a great challenge we were set this week over at Sunny Challenges & Creations.  All we have to do is create a Shaker Card – NO layout!!!!!  If you are like me, then I haven’t created one for so long that I can’t remember the last time I did one.

Measurements –
Base Card – Chocolate Chip – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 21cm x 15cm
Layer 1 – Cherry Cobbler – 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – DSP – 5 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ or 14cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 – Chocolate Chip – 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ or 8.5cm x 8.5cm
Layer 4 – Very Vanilla – 3 1/8″ x 3 1/8″ or 8cm x 8cm
Layer 5 – Window Sheet or Acetate – 3 1/8″ x 3 1/8″ or 8cm x 8cm

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Petite Pairs, Nature Walk
Ink – Chocolate Chip
Cardstock – Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
DSP – First Edition Speciality
Ribbon – 1/2″ Seam Binding – Cherry Cobbler, Crochet Trim – Victoria
Punches – 2 1/2″ Circle
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Sticky Strip, Glimmer Brad – Champagne, Glass Stampin’ Glitter – Gold (Retired), Stampin’ Markers – Marina Mist & Old Olive, Mini Glue Dots

I randomly stamped images over the DSP with Chocolate Chip Ink, prior to adhering to the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock.  I ran a piece of Cherry Cobbler Ribbon across the middle, tucked ends under & adhered to the Base Card with Snail Adhesive.

For my window, I inked my image with Stampin’ Markers – Old Olive & Marina Mist, stamped direct onto Very Vanilla, inked my sentiment in Chocolate Chip Ink & stamped onto the same piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock.  I placed my images onto the Cardstock, so that they would be able to be seen once I had adhered the top piece of Chocolate Chip Cardstock.

As I didn’t have any Double Sided Mounting Tape, I made my own.  I applied Sticky Strip all around the outer edge of my stamped piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock, ensuring that all sides were covered.  I cut 2 pieces of thick Cardboard – from the Glitter Paper – & adhered to the tops of the Sticky Strip, ensuring that all areas were covered as I didn’t want any pieces of the glitter to escape, applied another layer of Sticky Strip, carefully poured Glitter onto my image – not too much as you don’t want it to take over – punched a circle into the middle of the Chocolate Chip Cardstock with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch, adhered the Window Sheet to the wrong side & then finally to the top of the Sticky Strip.  I applied Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of this piece & adhered to the card.

I tied a bow with the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, found 2 small pieces of Crochet Trim that happen to be in the same container as my Ribbon & decided to use them as well.  A Glimmer Brad was attached to the middle & finally adhered to the card with Mini Glue Dots.

We hope you will jon us this week for this fun challenge.  Head over to Sunny Challenges & Creations to chek out what both Kris & Vicki have created, create your project, post to your blog or on line group & then link back with Mr Linky.  We would love to see your creation!

Have a great week
