Hello Friends, 

I am back today with these Rainbow Snowflake Shaker Cards featuring supplies from the Peace On Earth Release from Simon Says Stamp. The snail mail from the US to Canada is killing me... Simon Says has already had another Handmade Holiday Release since this one😱 Thankfully still plenty of time before Christmas!

I had fun creating these cards using my clear bag shaker technique, which makes the assembly process easy when making multiples.

Here is how these were made.
  • Lay the snowflake stencil onto a white cardstock panel. Since the stencil is fairly delicate and light I used tape to hold the stencil in place. 
  • Use sprays to add color to the background. Anywhere the stencil lays will remain white. I used 3 colors to create a rainbow mix using Distress Oxide Ink Sprays. (See links below)
  • Remove the stencil to reveal the background for the first panel.
  • Use the ink left on the stencil and flip it onto another white cardstock panel. Use a paper towel to press the image in place.
  • I then dipped the stencil in the excess spray and gave it a light water spritz and repeated the previous step to create another background panel.
  • Now to create the shakers themselves I used Version One of my Clear Bag Shaker Card Technique. Watch IG Reel below. Or you could easily create these cards using my original DIY Frameless Shaker Card design as well or use a premade shaker creator.
Here is a visual using a different background but the process is the same.

Below is the first background created with the sprays and the stencil over the panel. For this first card, I added an extra step to the clear bag. I used the Merry Hot Foil Plate to add the Merry using Aura Glimmer Foil to the top of the clear bag. You will need a Hot Foil System for this step or if you have a die you like you can just glue it to the front of the clear bag. I was so excited when I saw Amy Rysavy share this foiling technique on plastic in a recent post that I had to try it myself on these clear bags.

To the front of this card, I also added some more Harmony Snowflakes dies cut from Gold Foil Mirror cardstock. The Christmas Sentiment Strip comes from the Sentiment Strips Reverse Love Peace Joy set. I then finished the centers of the snowflakes with Iridescent Round Gems

These next cards feature the negative results of the sprayed stencils. I think I love these backgrounds more as the snowflake images are more visible. For these cards, I used sentiments from the Sentiment Strips Love Peace Joy, and added a Silver Mirrored Cardstock  Harmony Snowflake Dies to the fronts.

And finally, this last card was done exactly as the previous one only using a different sentiment.

I know I have a shaker problem and I am slowly working through my issues one shaker at a time πŸ˜‚ But honestly I am so happy to finally use the sequins and shaker bits that have I have been hoarding for years, and I still haven't really made a dent in them. I hope these fun-filled Rainbow Snowflake Shaker Cards inspired you today.

Merry Poinsettia Christmas Card | Hero Arts

Merry Poinsettia Bunch,Christmas Card,Hero Arts, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, Black,metallic watercolor set, Watercoloring,

Hello, my cardmaking friends! Today I am sharing this Merry Poinsettia Christmas Card created with the Merry Poinsettia Bunch Stamp and Dies from Hero Arts.

I have been wanting to experiment with watercolors on Black Watercolor cardstock for a while and thought these poinsettias were the perfect excuse. I used metallic watercolors as I thought they would pop off the black cardstock the best and add more shimmer and shine to the finished project.

To create this card, I stamped out the Poinsettia Bunches twice onto the Black Watercolor Paper using Versamark Ink. I then heat set the lines using Gold Emb. Pwd. Next, I colored in the images and then used the coordinating die to cut out both Poinsettia Bunches. To the back of the bunches, I added foam tape and popped them onto the front of an A2 Black Card Base, and trimmed off any pieces that hung over the edge.

For the sentiment, I heat embossed with the same Gold Emb. Pwd. and trimmed the banner to fit across the entire width of the card front. I then glued the banner to a layer of the gold Glitter Paper Holiday Sparkle paper that was then glued to the front of the card.

For some finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the flower centers and berries and added some gold pearls.

Now is the time to SHOP if you've been waiting... check out this amazing dealπŸ‘‡


I hope you enjoyed today's Merry Poinsettia Christmas Card.  I have a busy week ahead but hopefully, I will be back to share more projects with you later this week! Thanks so much for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting!

Turtle Dove Holiday Clear Bag Shaker Card | Inkon3

Turtle Doves, Christmas Card,Clear Bag Shaker Card, flat, Inkon3, Vellum shaker, Frameless,Card Making, Stamping,handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, Love Birds, Holiday Wreath,

Hello, my friends!

I am back today with another clear bag shaker card. I told you they are addictive! If you missed how these are assembled check out this blog post πŸ‘‰HERE. This time my card features a few of the newly released stamp sets from Inkon3. This card is part of the Inkon3 New Release IG Hop happening now over on Instagram. Make sure you hop on over there for inspiration and a chance at winning a $25 GC to their Shop.

This darling image comes from a combination of the Holiday Wreath and the Love Birds Stamp Set.
  • Stamp the images out using Fadeout Ink
  • Add color to the berries using the coordinating stamp with Atelier Sweet Petunia Ink
  • Do the same for the leaves using Atelier Goddess Green Ink Cube
  • Re stamp the wreath now using Juicy Ink
  • Heat set the image using Gold Rush Emb. Pwd
  • Stamp the sentiment using Blackout Ink
  • Fussy cut the wreath and the birds
  • Color in the birds, I used Copic markers
  • Add Liquid Pixie Dust to the birds for a layer of sparkle
  • Use foam to pop up the birds onto the wreath
  • Glue the finished wreath onto the front of the Clear Bag Shaker Panel
  • To create the shaker card base, see version one of my clear bag shakers HERE 
  • Finish by adding glossy accents to the berries

I added a piece of vellum to the clear sleeve along with an acetate sheet to add stability to the front panel. The vellum adds a softness to the card front and hides the inside of the card. 

The image below is what the shaker card looks like when opened up. If you prefer the softer look, you could use this side on the front of your card. I like seeing the shaker elements on the front. You could also skip the vellum and make the front completely see-through by only using the acetate in the sleeve. The wreath on the front is large enough to conceal a written message on the inside of the card.
