Hello friends!

Today's post is going to be super short and sweet. I have waaaayyyy too many things to do right now, so I will keep this brief! 

Alex Syberia Designs need to reach its funding goal to be able to go ahead and manufacture this beautiful collection, so please, help them! You can back them on their Kickstarter Campaign and help them spread the word about it! 

UPDATE: They have reached their Kickstarter GOAL!!! Thank you all that joined us and for supporting this campaign! Make sure to join today's Instagram Hop to enter their amazing giveaway of 15 prizes!

Today I have two inspiration cards today featuring a few of their beautiful sets.

To the background, I used the Modern Stripes Stencil 6x6" and applied Moonstone Glimmer paste to create a Slimline sparkly background. To extend the background I simply rotated the stencil once half of the paste was dry.

For this next card, I thought it would be fun to create a Christmas theme. So I added used Christmas colors to do that. This cute card features the From All of Us Stamp Set 4x6" and Coordinating Dies

For this background, I used the Fancy Background Stencil 6x6" with Gold Glacier Paste.

It's funny how your mind works, I knew there was something missing from this card, and it wasn't until now that I figured out what it was. I forgot to add the Celebrate Word Die to the top of the card. I since have and it really does complete it. Facepalm, LOL! If I end up taking new photos, because this is bugging me now, I will update these, haha!

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!

how to,handmade card,Stamps,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,stamping,Create Your Own Happy Stamp,Die cutting,Autumn cards, Fall, Floral Card,Alex Syberia Designs,card making, Kickstarter

This first card features the Create Your Own Happy Stamp Set 4x8" & Coordinating Dies. I also used the Fancy Background Stencil 6x6" to dry emboss the background panel. Hard to see it in the first pic but you can see it better in the next two. I also used the Stand-alone Dies | Celebrate Word Die to complete the sentiment.

The inks for this card are from Simon Stays Stamp and the embellishments come from Studio Katia.

This time for the background panel I used the Fancy Cover Die A2 (5.5x4.25") and used kraft cardstock behind it to coordinate with the colors I used.
