Thinking of You Shaker Card :)

Hello! My shaker/sequin obsession continues to grow. :) I started by stamping the clouds for the background using the super cute Just Thinking Of You set from Neat And Tangled. I stamped them with soft granite shadow ink by Hero Arts. Then I stamped the cloud where I wanted my window, and cut it out by hand. Then I stamped the cloud with staz-on ink on my acetate piece for the window. I glued my window into place with glossy accents. And then I filled up my shaker with sequins. I used snow white,  ocean breeze, summer sky, and crystal clear sequins from Neat And Tangled
The greeting is also from the Just Thinking Of You set from Neat And Tangled. As a finishing touch, I added some more Crystal Clear sequins to the front of the card. 

I hope you're not getting sick of sequins! :)

p.s. Here's a tip for stamping on acetate. You're most likely to mess up your stamping because it wiggles, so tape it down to your work surface, and then stamp on it. OH, and a Fiskars Stamp Press is your friend! Seriously! You NEED one. :)


  1. What a fun shaker card!!!

  2. So cute, you're really rockin' the shaker cards!
