World’s Simplest Shaker Card

Sunday, February 28th, 2021

Hey, Hey!  It’s Chala here for your Funday Sunday blog post! Today I thought I would share the world’s simplest shaker card.  No need for foam tape or struggling with getting your shaker elements into that tiny little well you had to create.

All you are going to need is your favourite shaped die cut (I will be using Memory Box’s Large Circle Burst Die) a clear baggie or plastic packaging, Scor-Tape and some shaker elements such as sequins. However, you can use almost anything or create your own shaker bits!

Here is the video to see how I created the world’s simplest shaker card.  Enjoy!


Happy Crafting!

Wine With Friends

Sunday, January 17th, 2021

Happy Saturday! It’s Deb here, for the Design Team. Normally, Saturday is a great time to enjoy wine with friends; unfortunately, these days we can’t do that. *sad face* It seems that right now, practically everywhere in the world is on lockdown, so today’s card is for the friends we can’t visit. Yes – that is the reason behind why I chose today’s word prompt to be ‘friends’ for the Scrap ‘N Stamp Daily Challenge!


If you haven’t already joined the Daily Challenge, I hope that you’ll consider it! Each day there is a new word prompt, to use as a jumping off point for your project. Simply share your card/project in the Facebook Challenge Page HERE, and use the hashtag #SNSCHALLENGE.  At the end of the month, one lucky participant is randomly chosen as the WINNER of a $50 GIFT CARD to Scrap ‘N Stamp! That’s a lot of goodness you can get for yourself.


I’ve combined some ‘old with new’ for this card; a new Lavinia stencil, with an older MFT Shaker die.  It’s been so long since I’ve made a shaker card, I really had to think about it! Especially because I discovered that I had run out of the Shaker inserts for this die.

I like the stenciled background, and how the sequins appear to be bubbles, floating out of the glass! I figure it’s been a while since I’ve shared a glass with friends, so we should make it champagne, aka sparkly wine!


I decided to make a slimline card, just because I like using the new Picket Fence Studios Slim Line Die Cutting System.  First, cut 2 pieces of white cardstock with the inside layer die. On one of the pieces, apply Worn Lipstick Distress Ink through the Lavinia Stamp Pods stencil.  Next, use the MFT Wine Glass Shaker Die to die cut the glass shape from the stenciled paper. Die cut another glass from dark pink cardstock.  Create your shaker, using the Gina K.  Clear Quartz Solid sequins. Use foam tape to attach the top stenciled/die cut layer to the 2nd piece of white cardstock. Now, attach the card front to a dark pink card base.

Next, stamp the sentiment from the MFT Good Time to Wine stamp set. I wanted to layer the sentiment on 2 strips, so stamped the first part, then masked off the stamp to ink the 2nd half of the sentiment. Next, die cut the 2 sentiments, and attach them to the card front with foam tape or squares.

Finally, glue on some extra sequins, for the ‘bubbles’.

In the photo above, you can see the added dimension of the sequins, shaker and sentiment strips. The stencil is a great way to add a background & more depth, without adding a physical layer.


Don’t forget to create and share your project for today’s prompt of ‘friends’, and/or any other day! Hopefully, we’ll all be able to have wine with friends in person, soon. Until then, have fun creating!

Lawn Fawn – Loads of Fun!

Lawn Fawn – Loads of Fun!

Hi Everyone! I am straying away from our poppy theme to celebrate some great news that I heard from a co-worker of mine. She’s expecting! This is very exciting as most of my close friends are all done having babies. So, I couldn’t help but get excited to make a baby card and I have been wanting to use the Lawn Fawn – Loads of Fun stamp set for awhile.

While searching through my stash I became disappointment. I didn’t have all the sentiments or pattern paper that I wanted to use, so I improvised and used my Silhouette program to create what I wanted. If you don’t have the silhouette program that’s okay! You can use Microsoft Word, Pages or something similar to create the same thing.

I also wanted to make this into a shaker card…but with a twist! I was using a technique of Jennifer McGuire’s to make some Christmas cards and thought it would work perfect for this one too! It is using laminator sheets and embossing power for the window. I like how this ups the look of the shaker card from just using plain acetate sheets.

It is much easier to watch this card come together instead of trying to describe it…so, click on the video below!
