Shaker Pocket Tips and Tricks - Ice Cream Sundae Shaker | Honey Bee Stamps

Shaker Pockets, birthday, Tips and Tricks, Ice Cream Sundae, Honey Bee Stamps, how to, hand made card, Stamps, stamping, die cutting, card making, frameless shaker, ilovedoingallthingscrafty,

Happy Monday crafty friends!

Today's post is all about sharing my TIPs and TRICKs for creating the perfect shaker using a Shaker Pockets. If you have played with them before, you may already know not all shaker pockets are made the same way, as they are all manufactured differently for various companies. Even though the original idea for these pockets was mine, I had no part in manufacturing them, but I have perfected ways to make them all work. 

This yummy Ice Cream Sundae Shaker is very straightforward to make so I will skip the how-to's today and focus on the tips and tricks.

SHAKER TIPS & TRICKS when using Shaker Pockets

  • TRY NOT to remove the protective film until it is glued to the card base, this will prevent scratches and keep the front clean. If you do remove it, place it lightly onto the front until you need to glue or add elements to it.
  • USE and bone folder to crease the tabs down as flat as possible.
  • TRIM insert/background panel 1/8th inch from the top and the side (2 sides only)
  • DO NOT overfill the pocket with shaker pieces. I fill about 1 inch height from the bottom.
  • USE strong adhesive to secure the finished pocket to the card base. Recommend Redline tape.
  • PLACE tape along the entire perimeter of the pocket, as close to the edge of the tab as possible. Include at least one piece down the middle, more for larger pockets.
  • When attaching the card base to the Shaker Pocket, ALIGN the bottom edges with each other before pressing them together. This ensures perfect alignment of all components. Ensure the card base is the same size before attaching them together.
  • USE strong adhesive to attach elements to the front of the acetate. If using liquid glue, place a weight on top and allow for drying time.
  • IF there is glue smudging or accidents, USE a baby wipe to wipe off excess glue and gently wipe it with a clean microfiber dry cloth to remove streaks while still wet. 
  • IF mailing the shaker, AVOID adding extra bulk to the front of the panel. Instead, stamp on the background panel and add die-cut pieces to the inside of the pocket or directly onto the acetate without using extra foam or dimension.
  • AVOID using small glitter and microelements with these shaker pockets. These shaker pockets have tiny openings at each corner to allow for air compression. Using small glitter or microelements may result in them escaping through these openings, potentially causing a mess and reducing the effectiveness of the shaker pocket.

PHOTOGRAPHY TIPs
  • I take my photos in natural light, in front of large windows. It is difficult to take pictures of these reflective cards when sunny and there is direct light as you will end up with glare on the reflective surfaces. I will wait until the sun is not shining directly into the window or when it is cloudy. 
  • If I can't wait, I have also used tissue paper on the window to diffuse the light when it is too sunny. 
  • Use foam boards to block the reflections that you may see when looking through the camera lens.

I used coordinating papers and double-sided it to make it sturdier. Fold the stand and tuck it into your card for the recipient to display.

Gnome One Like You Mini Slimline Shaker Card | Studio Katia

Happy Weekend Friends! 

I hope you all have been well. I have been meaning to share this card for a while but hadn't gotten around to it. To be honest, life has been getting in my crafty way, lol 😆. A couple of weeks ago, I broke my ankle when I missed one of my stairs, and although it is way better already, I am still limping around. I have been trying to be a good patient, but when you have ants in your pants it can be quite the blow. So needless to say I was feeling a bit down and blue last week and binge-watched all the shows. Being on social media made me feel worse cause I want to do all the things and can't, plus being on the phone too long strains my eye. But this week I finally made it down to my craft room and found a comfortable way to support my ankle while I create for short periods. Crafting has always been a great distraction and thankfully it has been helping with my winter blues, and these problems I am having! Anyways, let's talk about this cute Mini Slimline Shaker Card featuring the cutest little gnomes from Studio Katia.

CARD RECIPE


I was inspired to make this card from a scrap piece of blended background I had previously made. I thought the new Mini Slimline Small Hearts Cover would make the cutest little rainbow shaker pieces for a shaker card. So that was exactly what I did, and then began the rest of the card.

  • Stamp out the gnomes from the Gnomies Stamp set using copic-friendly ink.
  • Color images using Copics, and add white gel pen details for highlights.
  • Die cut the stamped images using the coordinating Gnomies Dies.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the stamp set onto the smallest Simple Dotted Hearts die cut.

  • To finish I glued the heart onto the front of the pocket and then added the gnomes using foam tape. 
  • I then completed that card by gluing on a few of the Bubblegum Pearls.
On the Studio Katia Blog today they are announcing the current Design Team. I am happy to continue another term with this amazing group of artists. I also love that I am helping to support a local to me small Canadian Stamp Company.  To learn more about the small but mighty team, stop by the SK Blog.

Rainbow Shaker Birthday Cards | Studio Katia

Rainbow, Shaker, Birthday Cards,Studio Katia,Infinity,Frameless Shaker,Edge to Edge Shaker,flat shaker,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, Shaker Pockets

Hello Friends!

I am back again today to share these two fun Rainbow Shaker Birthday Cards featuring the NEW Shaker Pockets! If you are following me or Studio Katia on Instagram, you may have seen these already in a Reel that was shared this past weekend. But for those that missed it here are all the details!

Fun fact: Did you know that these pockets were developed as a direct result of my DIY Frameless Shaker Cards, no kidding! In fact, Katia was the first person I approached to turn the DIY version into a product to make life easier for anyone who hated messing with foam tape to create shaker cards. 

Since then various other companies jumped onto this idea and have created them too (I must admit I couldn't contain my excitement about these and did share this idea with others at Creativation). Even still, I am so happy to see Studio Katia finally releasing these as they truly are a game changer when it comes to making shakers.

CARD RECIPE

  • Begin by creating the background. For both these cards, I used a piece of pattern paper from the Black on White Paper Set. I then Ink Blended the rainbow starting with yellow ink in the center and then ink blending with pink and blue to create the rainbow blends.
  • Trim the piece of paper to create a background for a mini slimline shaker and an A2 shaker.
  • Remove the protective layer from the Shaker Pocket.
  • I added strong adhesive tape to the back of the card panel, but you could also apply it to the side tabs of the pockets.
  • Next, I wrapped the tabs around the panel and secured three sides to the card panel, to create a pocket. 
  • I filled this first shaker card with Silver Foil Discs, then sealed the last pocket tab.
  • I then attached the panel to an A2 Card Base.
For the front of the card:
  • Stamp out the Birthday Sentiment from the It's Your Birthday stamp set. Use ink that sets quickly or you can heat emboss it too.  
  • Die cut the sentiment done on vellum, using one of the Dotted Balloons Dies.
  • Apply small dots of glue to the balloon behind the stamped image to hide the glue dots.
  • Finish by adding a bow.

This next card was done the exact same way with a few differences that I will point out next.

If you have never made a shaker because they look complicated, or you hate messing with foam tape, like I did, I promise you this is the easiest way to make them and the results speak for themselves. Just look, aren't they magical! Give these a try, I think you will love them!
