Fairy Celebration Shaker

I'm shaking things up with the Fairy Celebration stamp set.  It's no secret that I love shaker cards.  They are just so much fun!  And when you pair a shaker card with fairies and a great sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, you get magic!


If you saw yesterday's post, I told you that I stamped a bunch of the fairy images onto Watercolor Paper with Basic Black archival ink and watercolored with an Aqua Painter and various ink pad refills.  I find it easier to stamp up an entire sheet of these types of images to watercolor all at once and then I'll have images ready for a variety of projects.  It's a great time-saver!



I have a feeling that Stampin' UP! is trying hard to promote shaker cards.  You need 3 things to create the perfect shaker:  Foam Adhesive Strips, Window Sheets, and layered punches or die cuts.  With all the layering framelits dies in this catalog, it's going to be fun to see what shaker cards everyone creates.  I made this stand-alone shaker with the Layering Circles Framelits and filled it with Dazzling Diamonds glitter, AKA Fairy Dust.




In case you think I forgot, I'm still working on the shaker card tutorial.  It will be worth the wait!  I'll be sharing more shaker cards throughout this week, so make sure that you have subscribed to receive email updates (in the right column).

Thanks so much for stopping by!  You'll find the complete list of supplies for this card at the end of this post.
