Today on Stylin’ Stampin’ INKSpiration, the designers are featuring a fun batch of shaker cards. You’ll definitely want to check out their creations HERE. I am sharing a card that we made at a recent demonstrator shoebox swap that uses several new products from the upcoming Holiday catalog.
For the window part of the shaker, I used the new Detailed Santa Thinlits die. There is a very cute stamp set that coordinates with the die called Greetings from Santa. To keep this card super simple, I stamped all the sentiments in Real Red ink and used Thick Whisper White card stock to make this card very sturdy. The Candy Cane Lane Bakers Twine is also new. Doesn’t it remind you of a candy cane? It’s got a bit of metallic shimmer to it.
If you are going to make a shaker card, you’ll need to have Window Sheets and Foam Adhesive strips, as well as something to “shake”. I filled my shaker with mica flakes…yet, another new product from the Holiday catalog!
You’ll be able to order from the Holiday catalog beginning September 1st. Luckily, that is right around the corner.
Personal Update: As many of you know, I live in Kokomo, Indiana and our town was hit very hard on Wednesday with multiple tornadoes. Amazingly, there were no fatalities, only a few minor injuries. The damage is widespread, though.
We were fortunate to not have any damage to our home or business. The power has been out at our home since the storms, but was finally restored this morning. We had to close our office yesterday, but have reopened today. I consider us to be very blessed. Many of our friends are dealing with unimaginable hardships.
Please keep the town in your thoughts.
Thanks for stopping by!
