Aug 11, 2022 | Annual Catalog, Creative

Just a bit of housekeeping:

If you haven’t checked out the free gifts during Sale-A-Bration, a quick reminder that August 31st is the last day to take advantage. New items have been added to the free gift list! If you were thinking of getting either the Rings of Love DSP or the Wonderful World bundle before they sold out-they have been restocked.

Now, let’s get into the card. This is (obviously) a shaker card. They are very easy to make with our Fabulous Frames dies. Our Stitched Rectangle dies would work great as well. For the acetate you can use leftover packaging from your embellishments or the sheet from our Photopolymer stamps sets.

The stamp I used is from the Good Feelings stamp set. This set is amazing because it does most of the work for you in one simple step. I’ve mentioned in posts before that I love to create custom backgrounds and this is one I had set aside. I did some ink blending (colors listed below) on Thick Basic White and then cut with the Fabulous Frames dies. Once the stamping is done and your pieces are cut, the assembly is fairly quick and easy. Below are some tips and tricks if you are interested. A complete product list is listed below as well.


Let your ink blending backgrounds dry completely so the oils from your fingers don’t leave marks.

Considering cutting and stacking multiple pieces of your shaker frame. This is much easier than trying to make a shaker well that is deep enough for your shaker bits with foam adhesive strips or sheets. It is also seamless and doesn’t require cutting foam adhesive to size.

If you use adhesive strips to adhere your well to your card, don’t remove the backing all at once. Remove backing from one side only, get it lined up and then remove backing from the other sides.

If you find that your shaker bits are sticking to your acetate, rub your embossing buddy or a dryer sheet over it.

Don’t want all your shaker bits to fall to the bottom of the card, adhere a few in random places. You’ll notice I did this on my card.
