Shake Shake Shake!

Love Shaker Cards!

I've been wanting to try a shaker card with the Jar of Cheer set. As predicted it is one of my favorite sets!  It coordinates with the Jar of Love bundle.
At the last card club meeting we made a fun shaker tag.  But this could easily be converted to a card.


 The assemble is a bit tricky but well worth it!  I've broken down the steps here for you.

Assembly

Stamp two complete jars (the body + lid)

Cut out using big shot: One jar with inside cut out and one jar just the outside cut.

Reserve the blank inside of the jar - this will become the sentiment tag.

Stamp the tree on the inside of the jar (this is the back) and Merry on the extra piece that was the inside of the card.

Glue clear window sheet onto wrong side of jar.
Build up the sides of the jar with foam strips. You will want to use as little strips as possible.  I started with a strip for the top and the bottom them filled in my sides.

Pour your "snow" into the area built up. Then remove the backing on the foam strips.  It's important not expose the adhesive on the strips before pouring in your snow as it will stick to the strips and you want get a good seal.

**Note: It's easy to want to really fill your area with glitter however you need to provide room for the glitter to move.  Resist the urge to over fill!

Club Cards

Oh What fun . . .

we had at our Thursday evening club card meeting!  We experimented with One Sheet Wonder Cards.  For those that took advantage of the paper offer in October this would be a great solution to maximize your use of a single sheet of Designer Series Paper.  I plan on doing a video however in the meantime I'll post separately on how I cut up the 12 x 12 sheet and the 6 cards I created from it.

I copied the Christmas card (thanks again Pinterest) and the fall card was October's Paper Pumpkin.  It's a shaker card and we had a lot of fun making these!

 























Stay tuned for my next post on the 6 OSW (one sheet wonder) from the DSP (designer series paper)!

Are you ready for Halloween!

I just can't think of any occasion the jar set can't cover!  The jar of haunts set is just too sweet not to creat some cards from!  I used some extra thick clear embossing powder to give it a real glass look!

Calling All Paper Fanatics!

Great Offer from Stampin' Up to stock up!

Just like in my wardrobe when I create cards I tend to not use patterns!  However I may be doing more pattern mixing in the future as this is a deal most won't be able to pass up!
