Happy Thanksgiving to my crafty American Friends!

Here in Canada, we had our celebration already but many of you that I have come to know and love over the years are from the US, so this post is dedicated to you. Here are some colorful maple leaves to represent the Canadian in me that is thankful for you!

Today's slimline card features the new Thankful For You Stamp set and a few of the new mini ink cubes from Inkon3

To make this card, 
  • I stamped out the solid stamp of the maple leaf using a different ink of the mini ink cubes each time slightly overlapping one to the next (see links below for colors).
  • Next, I prepped the entire panel with an anti-static bag to do some heat embossing.
  • I went back over each leaf and stamped the outline using Juicy Ink and then heat set the lines using Gold Rush Emb. Pwd.
  • For the sentiment, I stamped out the Thankful using Shark Tooth White Atelier Ink and then heat set it using Arctic White Emb.Pwd. which was then fussy cut and glued in place with black foam dots.
  • I then trimmed the slimline panel and added it to another Gold Glitter panel that was then glued to the card base.
  • To finish off this card I added a few gold pearls.

Rainbow Snowflake Shaker Cards | Sprayed Stencil Backgrounds | Simon Says Stamp

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 😂 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.
