I'm back today to share some super fun cards with you all! I haven't made a Shaker in ages and I have some (hoarding some) sequin mixes that I've been looking forward to using.
If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I have links (some affiliate links) throughout and at the end of the post. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.
I started by stamping the Images from the Lil Hoot Stamp Set by Hero Arts on Neenah White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. I colored them in fairly quickly with Copic's.
After coloring them in (you can see my color choices below), I followed pretty much the same Partial Die Cutting Technique that you can see here in Jennifer McGuire's video. I've linked to think video a several times because she does a great job (always!!) showing how easy this technique is. I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle Die and I fussy cut the rest of the image.
The Stitched Rectangle Die from the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes is almost always my go to when I want to trim down a Panel.
I used the same Stitched Circle Die to die cut windows into some Fun Foam, and I also used it to cut 3" x 3" squares from a Scor-Tape Sheet. I needed two of those for each card. I placed one on one side of the Foam Window so I could lay a piece of Hero Arts Acetate over it and the other one went on the other side of the Foam Window so none of my Sequins would escape.
On the Yellow Bear Card, I used the Champagne Sequin Shaker Mix by Lucy's Cards. For the other two Cards, I used Enchanted Evening and Iced Berries by Kennedy Grace Creations. This is the first time I've used KGC Sequins. I've gotta be honest peeps. I. Am. In. Love. They are soo well done. No little round floaty's (the little circle from the hole in a cupped sequin). All of the shapes are consistent and the colors are perfectly matched! Be sure to go check this girl out and pick up some. You WON'T be disappointed.
I finished these guys off with a few Sequins from each Sequins Shaker Mix and I used Hero Arts Folded Note Cards from the Sunshine, Foliage and Sea Mixes.
That's it! Easy peasy.
I shared a sneak of my this card the other day in THIS post, but now you can head over to the Butterfly Reflections Ink Blog and check it out. I hope you enjoyed my cards today!
Until next time!
