Happy Hump Day! I have a shaker card for you today that I hope will make you smile! My oldest “peep” is home this week and I am being THE BIGGEST SPONGE and taking it all in! He is the one that lives in Boston that is a Montessori Teacher and this year he has 15 ducklings!
“Mr Llama is back” – Is it Larry, Liam, Lawrence……whatever – he is ADORABLE!
One of his friends from college just had a bouncing baby boy and I naturally HOPPED on it to say, “Can I make you a card” – With that…I knew that it could not be too frilly…so here you go!
It was SUPER fun and SUPER rewarding to make! I was so excited to make it and I hope that you find the pictures and the collage to be a help! Please feel free to email me or leave a comment if you need additional help!
What is on today’s agenda – PLAY TIME in my CRAFT AREA….(I admit, he is not so excited but I sure am) – I told him that we are going to make all sorts of goodies for his ducklings….stay tuned as I will blog about it!
Here are some tips that I think will help you! The Hearth and Home thinlits are perfect to make a shaker card and there are so many stamps that you could use to put behind the window….
- The Embossing buddy – if you run that over the Window Sheet before you adhere is and also try to run it against the side of the foam adhesive….it will help eliminate the static of the “shaker parts”
- Having the right adhesives are key. I know, I know – there are a lot of adhesives out there, but having the ones that I have used will make the whole process easier!
- The tear & tape works great with this (T & T) on the above captions….and when I cut the T & T in 1/2 to make a thin strip to fit this framelit, it was really easy and it did the trick!
I think that this DSP is PERFECT for this card, it gives a great feel for a simple yet super FUN card but when you shake it – WOW happens! Shaker cards sre HOT right now and they are really very easy – to me, I say you just have to dive in and give it a try. I was very happy with the end result!
Here is the “low down” on the card. I admit, I truly hope that Stampin’ Up! comes out with thick Very Vanilla Card Stock, this is why I mounted the DSP against a an extra piece of vanilla card stock…I like the extra support!
Have a fabulous day…..remember that my Product Share are available (click at the top header of my blog) and I am excited for the new catalog to be unveiled for YOU on my blog…..just less than 2 weeks – we can hang in there!
Yesterday I sent out a confirmation to those that requested a product share….if you did NOT receive one yesterday, please email me so I can make sure you are on the list.
Wish me luck with my peep today – I am in HOG HEAVEN (sorry Daisey) but I am hoping that he will get as excited as I am…..I am envisioning lots of 3-D’s….lots of cards for parents….I am just happy! :-
