I went with a mostly pink monochromatic theme for my card… but colored up a brown chicken so it would pop on the card. I don’t make too many shaker cards… for whatever reason they don’t usually work out for me, but this one did! I had so much fun creating it!
I have a process video for this card on the SFL YouTube Channel. You can check that out here…
The FOTM card kits have been selling out quickly each month! Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss out on receiving this kit! And don’t forget about the reveal and hop tonight at midnight EDT… the design team and our guest have lots of fun inspiration to share!
Slimline cards are the “in” thing right now and I thought I would jump on in and make a slimline shaker card! I am using ingredients from Collection 4 from the SFL Flavor of the Month June 2020 Card Kit. This kit has sold out, but I will link items that are available to be purchased separately throughout the blog post.
To begin my card, I cut a frame using this Slimeline Marquee die from “Orange Fizz” cardstock. I then die cut 3 pieces of pattern paper from the “On the Playground” paper from Collection 4 for the windows. I then glued a piece of acetate to my frame and put that aside to dry.
I colored the slide image with Copic Markers (R27, R59, YG17, G28) then fussy cut the image. I put that aside and put my pattern paper pieces to my card base. For my card base I used “Blu Raspberry” cardstock. I used sequins from the collection for my shaker bits.
Once I carefully add my frame to my card base I add my slide and the enamel dots also from the collection.
I started out by using the Sunday Stamps sketch #56 for the basic layout of my card. It was a perfect layout to use the ribbon that came in the Weather Together collection of the kit. And, I decided to turn the 3 circle elements on the sketch into small shaker windows.
I chose the Blu Raspberry cardstock from the kit as my A2 size cardbase and the rainbow striped paper from the Weather Together collection (collection #3 in the kit) for my mat.
To make my shaker windows, I punched 1 inch circles from heavy duty white cardstock and then used a 1.5 inch scalloped circle punch to punch around the 1 inch circles to create my shaker frame. I repeated this 15 times (because I couldn’t seem to make foam work for these small frames🤦♀️)! I added the clear transparency circle (1.25 inch circle) under my top layer of the scalloped frame. Then I just used liquid glue to add the other 4 scalloped layers. This gave my frames some depth.
I wrapped one piece of the ribbon from the Weather Together collection around the bottom of my card mat and then the other down the left side so they overlapped. Then I adhered my card mat to the cardbase.
I punched 3 more of the scalloped circles to use as my shaker window base layer and adhered these on top of the vertical strip of ribbon. Then came the fun part of adding the sequins (and of course I added a few too many!).
I stamped the “You are awesome” sentiment from the Little Lady stamp set (from the Little Lady collection #4 from the kit), backed it with the turquoise side of one of the papers from the Weather Together collection. I decided to add it under the middle shaker window. Then I added some 1/2 inch punched circles from that same turquoise paper to the upper right hand corner of the card. I think it turned out very cheerful and would make a great encouragement or congratulations card!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed this bright and cheery project! If you have a tip for adding the dimension to tiny shaker frames, please let me know!!!!
Hi crafty friends! Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde with a fairy fun shaker card to show off SFL’s new release! (Sorry I couldn’t help myself.) Shaker cards are fun, versatile and add a little something out of your ordinary everyday card. Over the years I have watched many videos of how to make them, different methods and tricks. Every time I sit down to make a shaker card I feel like I’m learning for the first time. I will say this card might be the one I had the least amount of trouble with but please note the trouble is mine not in the technique itself. It’s actually a very simple process I just struggle with it for some strange reason. I have to take each step slowly so that I don’t glue the wrong pieces together. I was so happy with the way it turned out!
Here’s a quick run down of what I did:
stamped sentiment on the clear acetate sheet (after hitting it with an Embossing Magic Pad so the embossing powder wouldn’t cling where I didn’t want it to) with VersaFine black onyx ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder
the image from Winter Fairies by SFLwas stamped with Memento black ink then was colored with Prismacolor pencils & maybe Derwent inktense pencils (I keep them in the same case and when I’m coloring I am usually just looking for the right color not which brand)
fussy cutted out the image and then went around the edges with a Memento marker in black ink (gives it a finished look even if your edges are a little rough)
Above I’ve included the links on the pics for the individual products or you can click the pic below where I’ve included the link to get the bundle.
Thank you so much for stopping in today and checking out the blog! Take some time and look around the other design team members have done some really great work with this release. No such thing as too much inspiration right?
This stamp set is very versatile. It has sentiments for “Bee-lated Birthday”, “Hello”, a little encouragement with “snailed it” or say thank you with “you’re tweet” and more. I also love that this set has 2 boy images – they will be perfect for my young nephews!
I first stamped out the 1 boy with the kite image, the sun, and stamped out the bee image 3 times. I colored them simply with Copic markers and then cut them out.
I then flipped through the pattern paper and found a fun, busy pattern for inside my shaker window and a plain pink for the outside frame. Once I cut my inside panel and frame I used liquid glue to adhere a piece of acetate to my frame. Once that was dry I added the foam adhesive. Lastly, I put A LOT of sequins in various sizes and shapes into my window area before adding the frame to the busy “window” panel.
Lastly, I added my images and sentiment. I finished with a little Wink of Stella clear glitter brush to the wings of me bees.

Hey, everyone it’s Lynnea! I have another under the sea themed card for you using fun products you can grab in the Scrapping for Less shop! This time I’m making a super fun shaker card! And there’s a video!
I LOVE the My Favorite Things Ocean View Porthole die and as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make a shaker! My shaker is quite simple, but for a step by step tutorial make sure you watch my video below! I started by picking out some of my favorite papers from the Echo Park Vitamin Sea paper pack. I wanted to keep the patterns masculine. I always have a shortage of cards for guys in my stash and these papers and stamps are perfect for guys!
Once I picked out my papers I die cut the waves patterned paper with the Ocean View Porthole die – you could just use a circle die, but I wanted to make sure that my window was perfectly sized, so I just used the die. I adhered some acetate to the back of my waves paper and used foam tape to make a circular “well” at the back of my patterned paper and filled it up with sequins and little anchor pieces. I used another piece of patterned paper to seal up my shaker. I die cut the Ocean View Porthole die three times from heavy white cardstock and stacked them together for dimension and then glued them onto the front of my acetate.
To finish off my card I stamped the cute little shark and sentiment from the La-La Land Crafts Jaws Because stamp set. I colored him up with alcohol markers and used a dotting technique for texture. I trimmed him out and added him to the front of my shaker with the sentiment strip. That’s it! Super simple and super cute!
Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here on my new blog and ready to get Kraken. using this great stamp set by Newton’s Nook, and other supplies from Scrapping For Less, I had some fun crafty time putting this together for you to enjoy.
Using the Amalgam Ink I stamped out the images of the Kraken, Bottle and Scroll. Using my Scan n Cut I cut the images and then the bottle again from a card panel.
Using the water layers from the Shadowbox Ocean Set and stitched rectangle dies I cut the panel to the exact size I wanted and then started playing with my Oxides.
First I used Salty Ocean and Broken China to blend on the bottom of the main panel, and the 3 water layers. I the varied with the Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade and Abandoned Coral to create the sunrise. Once satisfied with the blend, I grabbed my Radiating Rays Stencil and the Squeezed Lemonade again to get those rays just right.
I used Nuvo liquid clue and adhered a panel of acetate to the inside of the top panel, I then adhered one of the water layers. I added some foam tape around the sides and put in some sequins from my stash. I had already added the scroll with the “Let’s Get Kraken” sentiment to the panel of my cardbase, so that it would show through when the main panel was attached. Once the top panel was added to the base with the shaker intact, I was able to add the 2nd and 3rd water layers along with the Kraken in its rightful place among the waves. After adding a few water drops to activate the Oxides, my card was complete.
Hello Everyone! Christine with Pattercrafts here with a birthday card using products from the Banana Split Level of the March Flavor of the Month! I wanted to do one more card with this kit before the April Card Kit Reveals this week. I decided to make a shaker card since it has been quite a while since I made one last.
Using these fun Mod Rectangle dies I cut down some pattern paper from Collection 2. I stamped the greeting with one of the sentiment stamps found in the “Sentiment Stamp Set” included in the banana split level package. The party hat is ephemera included in Collection 2.
Thank You So Much for stopping by today. The March Flavor of the Month Card Kit is still available if you are interested. Click Here
