Strawberry Shaker Card (feat. Lawn Fawn)

Hi friends. I had lots of fun making this cute strawberry shaker card using the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Strawberry Die Cuts and Lawn Fawn Strawberry Patch Die Cuts. I love that this large strawberry die comes with face elements you can add to make it cuter.

For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base. I also cut a piece of Stampin’ Up! Real Red 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock to 4-1/2 x 4-1/2″ for the top panel. I die cut the strawberry window from the panel using the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Strawberry Die Cuts.

Next, I die cut a ton of the seeds with the same die set from Simon Says Stamp 100# Black Cardstock and adhered them around the window. I diecut the leaves from Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Strawberry Die Cuts and Lawn Fawn Strawberry Patch Die Cuts from Authentique 6 x 6 Emerald Papers (retired) and added some dimension by coloring them with Tim Holtz Mowed Lawn Distress Oxides Ink. I cut the flowers from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock and colored the back piece with Lawn Fawn Guava Ink.

Next, I built the shaker element by adding a piece of Acetate behind the window and two layers of 3M Foam Tape behind. I added shaker bits from Queen and Company Fruit Toppings, Pastel Diamonds Toppings, and pink pearls from Bring On Spring Topping Refill. I sealed the shaker by adding a piece of Lawn Fawn 100lb Guava 8 1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock.

For the sentiment, I stamped part of it from the Lawn Fawn HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY Stampset and the rest from Lawn Fawn Simply Sentiments onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Ink and cut them down into strips. To finish off the sentiment, I die cut the word “BERRY” from Tim Holtz Idea-ology 8 X 8 Paper Stash Metallic Jewels Kraft Stock with Honey Bee Tailgate Alphabet Dies. I also added the eyes and a mouth from the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Strawberry Die Cuts which I cut from Simon Says Stamp 100# Black Cardstock.

Lastly, I finished it off by adding some highlights with a White Gel Pen.

I left the inside of the card blank.

Two Backgrounds Using the Same Die and No Stamping

Hello friends. Love making holiday cards but hate stamping?!? Here are two quick and easy holiday cards that require no stamping — only dies. I used the same background die from Lawn Fawn to create both, utilizing the negative and positive pieces that were cut. This is a great way to make multiple cards without waste.

I worked on the backgrounds simultaneously because it’s easier. First, I cut two pieces of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create card bases. Then I die cut Stampin’ Up! Berry Burst 8-1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock (retired) with the Lawn Fawn PEPPERMINT STRIPES BACKDROP Die Cut. I adhered the negative pieces to one card base first by using the positive one as a guide to place the pieces. Then adhered the positive background piece to the other card base.

I die cut two wreaths from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with the Catherine Pooler Joy Wreath Dies. Then colored them with Garden Party and Lime Rickey Inks from Catherine Pooler using direct-to-paper technique. To help keep them together and make it easier to adhere the sentiment I added a piece of Acetate which I cut with a 2-5/8″ circle die. I used the Stampin’ Up! Layering Circle Dies (retired).

I die cut the sentiment from a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and Stampin’ Up! Basic Black 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock with the Catherine Pooler Round of Merry Dies. I finished it by adding some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ivory Seashell.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Merry Messages Stamp Set with Stampin’ Up! Berry Burst Ink (retired).

Dimensions


I created a simple shaker for the second card. I die cut the sentiment from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with the Catherine Pooler Round of Merry Dies and colored it with Garden Party and Eucalyptus Inks from Catherine Pooler. I used blender brushes to create a gradient.

I die cut a piece of Acetate with a 2-1/2″ circle punch and adhered it to the back of the sentiment and added a very thin piece of 3M Foam Tape around the edges. I used Queen and Company Clear and Pink Diamond toppings (these are currently out of stock but I think will be back once Q and Co moves) and Candy Toppings to fill the shaker. I added another 2.5 inch circle behind the shaker from white cardstock.

I diecut a bow and several “snowflake” or “asterisk” images from Stampin’ Up! Gold Foil Sheets with the Catherine Pooler Retro Ornament Dies.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! ‘Joy to the World’ Paper Pumpkin stampset (Paper Pumpkin is a subscription box so this stampset is not available for purchase) and Eucalyptus Ink.

Hello friends. I’ve got another cute Halloween card to share with you all. This is a very simple shaker card using the Honey Bee Stamps Boo Buzzword dies and the Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad. Very little stamping and absolutely no coloring involved. I love making these kinds of cards!

I started by cutting a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100lb Black 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make the card base. I also cut a piece of the Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad to 4 x 5-1/4″. I diecut a window from it with the Catherine Pooler Designs Scallops & Dots Dies, added a piece of acetate with double-side tape and added some 3M Foam Tape to make the shaker element. I added sequins from the Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest Sequin Mix and backed it with another piece of pattern paper from the Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad.

I diecut the sentiment with the Honey Bee Stamps BOO Dies from the Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad and Simon Says Stamp 100lb Black 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock (for the shadow). I stamped the rest of the sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamps BOO Stamp Set onto some more black card stock with Versamark Ink and and heat embossed with WOW Embossing Powder in Super Fine Opaque Bright White.

I diecut ghosts, bats and pumpkins from the Honey Bee Stamps Haunted House Add-On (this die works with the House Builder Card Base Dieset) from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″, Simon Says Stamp 100lb Black 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock, and orange cardstock from my scrap stash.

I finished it off by adding some Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest Sequin Mix.

Spring Shaker Card Featuring Catherine Pooler Designs Pitter Pattern Stampset

Hi all. Need a fun card for Spring or to pick someone’s spirits up? This fun shaker using Catherine Pooler Designs Pitter Pattern Stampset is a great option.

I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base and a top panel to 4 x 5-1/4″. I stamped the medium and large rain drops from the Catherine Pooler Designs Pitter Patterns Stamp Set with CP Cummerbund, Suede Shoes, and Juniper Mist Inks, then dies cut four of them with the Pitter Pattern Dies. I added 3M Foam Tape to the back of the panel to create a shaker panel, added some Catherine Pooler Designs Porland Sequin Mix and adhered it to the card base.

I diecut two umbrella bases using the Catherine Pooler Designs Under the Umbrella Dies from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″. One I colored with CP Chiffon and Limoncello Inks, using an ink blending tool and the other I used the direct-to-paper technique with CP Black Jack Ink on the handle only, cut it out and adhered to the yellow umbrella base. Then diecut the patterned section from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″, adhered them to the umbrella base and adhered the umbrella to the card.

I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 13/16 x 3-13/16″ which I colored with CP Chiffon Inks using the direct-to-paper technique. I stamped a sentiment from Catherine Pooler Designs Pitter Patterns Stamp Set onto another piece of Neenah Cardstock with CP Black Jack Ink and cut it to 5/8 x 3-1/16″ and adhered them to the card I finished the card by adding some sequins from the Catherine Pooler Designs Portland Sequin Mix.

Cards, Christmas, Slimline

Super Easy Christmas Slimline Shaker Card featuring the Catherine Pooler Candy Cane Slimline Die

Hello everybody! I don’t know about you but I love a good shaker card and when it’s easy to make I’m all for it! I also love slimline cards so I decided to combine the two. This new Candy Cane Slimline Die from Catherine Pooler is perfect for all kinds of backgrounds You can layer it, inlay the pieces or do a tone on tone like I did here. The other die that I am loving from the Jolly Holiday release is the Peppermint Twist Cover Plate Die. You will see how I used it for this card.

I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 3-1/3″ for my card base. next I used the Candy Cane Slimline Die to cut the front panel and adhered it to the card base. I used the My Favorite Things Stitched Circle Scallop Frames (I think this is no longer available but you can achieve the same look with a scallop circle die or punch and a smaller circle for the inside) to cut out a frame from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″.

I stamped the sentiment from Catherine Pooler’s Nice List Stamp Set onto another piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Catherine Pooler’s Cranberry Fizz Ink and used a 2-1/4″ punch to cut it out.

I put together my shaker element by adding acetate to the back of the frame, using a punch to cut it out, some foam tape behind that and adding some Queen and Company Topping Pastel Diamonds in red, green and clear. I adhered the circle with the sentiment and adhered the whole thing to the card.

To make it more festive, I used Catherine Pooler’s Cranberry Fizz Ink and a direct-to-paper technique to color some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ then diecut it using the Peppermint Twist Cover Plate Die. I adhered several of the peppermints around the card front and added some Bottle Green and Ivory Seashell Nuvo Crystal Drops to the peppermints for some dimension.

On the inside of the card, I stamped another greeting from the Catherine Pooler’s Nice List Stamp Set with Catherine Pooler’s Eucalyptus Ink and some more peppermints. And that completes this card.

Cards, Encouragement, Faux Embossing, Just Because, Stampin' Up!, Summer, Techniques

Faux Embossed Background Using Dies

Hello friends. This faux embossed technique that I discovered a few years ago and is a great way to add dimension to your card without having to emboss. It can be done with most images and all text. I used the word dies from Nothing’s Better Than Bundle from Stampin’ Up! to create an embossed background. But to step it up I also decided to add a shaker element to the card.

I started by cutting a piece of Bumblebee 8-1/2X11 Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base. I die cut the “Cocktails” word with the Love You More Than Dies from Bumblebee 8-1/2X11 Cardstock several times. I adhered them to the card using Tombow Mono Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added some Bumblebee Classic Stampin’ Ink to the top of the text and edges of the card base with a Sponge Dauber. Adding ink gives it more of an embossed look because it highlights the raised edges.

I stamped the outline image of the cocktail again as well as the sentiment onto a scrap piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I used the solid stamps with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Ink and Misty Moonlight Classic Stampin’ Ink to create an ombre effect for the drink. I used a Sponge Dauber to soften the line between the two colors on the stamp before stamping. I colored the glass with Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blends and the Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter.

I stamped a second version of the solid image. I used Bumblebee Classic Stampin’ Ink for the fruit and Misty Moonlight Classic Stampin’ Ink for the umbrella. I trimmed the image to a piece, measuring 1-1/2 x 2-1/4″ and left the second solid image without diecutting. I cut another piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock to 2 x 6″ and used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to punch one end, creating a tag. I adhered the rectangle piece with the image to the tag and then cut out the center of the drink. I stamped a sentiment from Nothing’s Better Than Stampset with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Ink onto the tag. Then added Acetate and Foam behind the tag, some Clear Diamond Shaker Toppings, adhered the extra stamped cocktail beverage behind and adhered the tag to the card. I finished it off by adding ribbon in Misty Moonlight. Since I don’t have any Misty Moonlight Ribbon I found some white grosgrain ribbon from my stash and colored it using Misty Moonlight Classic Stampin’ Ink and added some Pearls which I colored yellow with a Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.

On the inside of the card, I stamped another sentiment from the Nothing’s Better Than Stampset with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and the cocktail outline image with Bumblebee Classic Stampin’ Ink.

Shop Your Stash Day 1: Birthday Shaker Card

This month I decided to challenge myself to NOT buy any new craft supplies (with the exception of necessary supplies like white cardstock and adhesive). Like many of you, I realized that I have been spending a ton of money on cleaning supplies, hygiene and groceries since I have had to order online more than usual so it was time to cut some corners. I also thought this would help people who are struggling financially but who still want to craft.

I went through my stamps, dies, stencils and picked out some that I know I have not used very often and combined with the other things I already own. I alos thought it was a good time to go through my already made card stash and see what categories I was low on –birthdays is one such category so I started there.

For this card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base and a piece of Neenah 80lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 3-7/8 x 5-3/16″ for the top panel. Next I created a window, measuring 2-15/16 x 2-15/16″, using the Sizzix Framelits Die Set 8PK – Squares to make the card front look like a polaroid. I also wanted it to be a simple shaker. I also diecut a black frame, measuring 3-3/8 x 3-3/8 x 3/16″ from Simon Says Stamp 100lb Black Cardstock. I used the 5th largest and the 6th largest dies.

Card front

I adhered the black frame onto the front panel window and added 3M Foam Tape behind it to create the shaker element and set that aside. Next, I used a scrap piece of Neenah 80lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and marked off the window using a pencil. I stamped the balloon from Sugarpea Designs HB2U Stamp Set. This was included in the Young At Heart Stamp of Approval Box from Catherine Pooler (SoA boxes are no longer available). I used Catherine Pooler Designs Be Mine, Bellini, Shea Butter, Garden Party, It’s A Boy, and Sweet Sixteen inks. I trimmed the panel a bit so it would fit behind the window, I added bows and strings to the balloons using my Micron 08 Pen and some sparkle with the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Clear Fine Glitter Brush Pen. Then filled the shaker with Pretty Pink Posh 4 mm Sparkling Clear Sequins and Martha Stewart Crafts Iridescent Glitter in clear (no longer available). I adhered the background to the shaker and the shaker to the card base.

Next, diecut a sentiment from Catherine Pooler Designs ‘Celebrate Die’ from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and Simon Says Stamp 100# Black Card Stock. I used a direct-to-paper technique using Catherine Pooler Designs It’s A Boy Ink to color the white sentiment. Once dry, I adhered the two together slightly offsetting the black layer to create a shadow, and adhered that to the card.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Sugarpea Designs HB2U Stamp Set and Catherine Pooler Designs Sweet Sixteen Ink. And that completes this card. I challenge you to Shop Your Stash and share your creations below in the comments.

Easter Cards featuring Simon Says Stamp’s Faberge Egg Dies

Happy Friday friends! Hope you are all doing well and are safe. With Easter right around the corner, I’m sharing some more super easy cards. These were made easy using the Simon Says Stamp’s Faberge Egg Dies.

For the first card, I started by cutting a piece of Simon Says Stamp Cotton Candy 8.5 x 11” Cardstock and Simon Says Stamp Mint 8.5×11 cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ To make a card base. Then to make the egg-shaped card, I used the outline egg and just positioned slightly off the folded edge of the card. this will produce a shaped card.

I diecut out the Faberge Egg Dies from Stampin’ Up! Shimmer Paper in Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum (these are no longer available but Simon Says Stamp has tons of glitter papers). Next, I diecut two pieces of Simon Says Stamp VELLUM using the outer Faberge Egg die. This will go behind the front decorative egg. I also diecut two different pattern papers with the same die. I chose one from My Favorite Things Plaid Patterns Merry & Bright Paper Pad and one front an older Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow 6 x 6 Paper Pad (no longer available I think).

Once all the diecutting was done, I assembled both cards. I adhered the vellum behind the glitter Faberge eggs with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue and trimmed off the excess around the glitter egg. Then adhered that to the pattern papers and to the card bases. To embellish the cards, I used Nuvo Drops in Ripened Pumpkin Gloss for the pink card. I filled the wells at the top and bottom edges of the egg and the added dots of Nuvo Drops in Rhubarb Crumble. For the green, I added dots at the top and bottom of the egg with Nuvo Drops in Carnation Pink Gloss and filled the loop areas with Nuvo Drops in Caribbean Ocean Gloss.

Dimensions


For the second card, I wanted to make a shaker card. Unlike most shaker cards this one did not take long at all. 😀 I started by cutting a piece of Daffodil Delight 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base and a piece of Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow 6 x 6 Paper Pad (no longer available I think) to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2”. I diecut an egg window into the pattern paper using the outline die from the Simon Says Stamp’s Faberge Egg Dies. Then I added a piece of Acetate behind it with some Scor-Tape. I diecut the Faberge Egg from Simon Says Stamp’s ASSORTMENT GLITTER Cardstock 6×6 Pack and carefully adhered it to the acetate with some Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.

I then added some 3M Foam Tape behind it, creating a well around the window. I added some pink sequins from my stash as well as Queen and Company Pastel Diamonds in pink, yellow and orange and Queen and Company Pops Toppings in pink, yellow and orange. I adhered a piece of the Daffodil Delight Cardstock behind the shaker as well. Instead of trying to adhere it directly to the card, adding a piece of paper behind it is much easier. I adhered the shaker element to the card base and thought it looked a little plain. Even with the sparkle of the glitter Cardstock, it was missing something so I added a strip of Stampin’ Up! Melon Mambo 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock, measuring 1/4 x 5-1/2”. To finish it off, I added some Nuvo Drops in White Blizzard.

On the inside of the card, I cut down a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4-1/ x 5-1/2” and adhered it to the inside of the card base and added a strip of the same plaid pattern paper, measuring 3/4 x 4” to the bottom of the white panel.

Quick & Easy Valentine’s Day Shaker Card featuring Simon Says Stamp February 2020 Card Kit

This Valentine’s Day shaker card came together quickly with the help of the Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit. This kit includes:

While the kit is no longer available the individual items are available for purchase separately. The stampset is great for all occasions; there are several sentiments for love, thank yous and birthdays.

Card Front

I began by cutting the 8.5×11 inch Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Schoolhouse Red Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base and a panel of the Polkadoodles Timeless Rose 6×6 Patterned Paper collection to 4 x 5-1/4”. I diecut the 3 windows using the Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Trio Window wafer die and adhered the Square Shaker Trio Pouch from My Favorite Things behind the panel using the 0.125 inch Scor-Tape that came in the kit.

I stamped the ‘big hugs’ sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Exclusive 6×8 Inch Window Frames clear stamp set onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″, using Catherine Pooler Designs Rockin Red Ink. I added some Buttons Galore and More SPRINKLETZ SWEETHEARTS Embellishments to the the top and bottom of the 3 shakers and adhered the sentiment panel and two other white panels behind the shaker windows. I then adhered the front panel onto the card base.

I chose a lighter pattern paper from the Polkadoodles Timeless Rose 6×6 Patterned Paper collection and stamped the hearts border using Versamark Ink and Wow Embossing Powder Bright White Super Fine. I fussycut the hearts border out and adhered it to the card around the windows. I finished it off by adding some of the confetti hearts from Buttons Galore and More SPRINKLETZ SWEETHEARTS Embellishments.

Card Inside

On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4 x 5-1/4” and adhered a strip of the same hearts pattern paper I used on the front of the card, measuring 3/4 x 4” to the bottom of the panel.

Cards, Fall, Holidays 2019, Thanksgiving

3 Cards Using Happy Harvest Kit from Queen & Company

Hello friends. Well November is upon us and Thanksgiving fast approaches. I don’t know about you, but I like to send out cards to friends and family for all the fall and winter holidays during September through December. These cute shaker cards were made using the Queen & Company Happy Harvest Kit and are primarily Thanksgiving cards. Their shaker dies and kits make it super easy to create adorable shaker cards in a shorter amount of time than if you have to create them from scratch.

For this first card, I cut down a piece of Lawn Fawn 100lb Paper Bag Cardstock 8.5 x 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″ to make a card base. Then cut a piece of the pattern paper to 4 x 5-1/4″ Happy Harvest Paper Pad (may be unavailable) from the Happy Harvest Fall Kit (may be unavailable) for the top panel.

Using two of the pattern papers and dies included in the kit, I diecut the acorns and created the shaker element with the acetate, self-adhesive foam shapes and pearl toppings in 3 colors. I diecut a stitched circle from Queen & Company Foundation Dies #1 with some more of the pattern papers, a scallop circle from Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock, and 3 banners with the Queen & Company Foundation Dies #2.

I adhered the circles on the bottom 2/3rds of the card over to the left side of the front panel and trimmed any excess. Then adhered the banners and stamped a sentiment from the stampset (not sold seperately) included in the kit using Catherine Pooler Orange Twist Ink.

I added some Ashland™ Natural Jute Twine from my stash to the bottom of the card panel and adhered the shaker element and extra acorn image. I adhered the card panel to the card base and embellished it with some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Dark Walnut.

On the inside I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5″X11″ to 4 x 5-1/4″ and added a piece of Happy Harvest Paper Pad from the Happy Harvest Fall Kit, measuring 1-3/8 x 4” to the bottom. I stamped a “HAPPY THANKSGIVING” sentiment from the kit with Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso Ink.

Dimensions

For the second card, I cut down a piece of Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso 8-1/2″ X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″ to make a card base. Then cut a piece of the pattern paper to 4 x 5-1/4″ Happy Harvest Paper Pad (may be unavailable) from the Happy Harvest Fall Kit (may be unavailable) for the top panel.

I diecut the large banner from the Queen & Company Foundation Dies #2 set in a pattern paper from the kit and backed it with a piece of Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso 8-1/2″ X 11″ and trimmed around the banner leaving an 1/8″ border. I also diecut a smaller banner from the same die set, a stitched circle from the Queen & Company Foundation Dies #1 from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5″X11″ and a scallop circle from the same set with the green glitter paper included in the kit. I adhered the banners and the circles to the card panel and stamped a sentiment from the Happy Harvest stampset included in the kit onto the white circle with Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso Ink.

I created the turkey shaker using the dies and shaker elements included in the kit. I added some toppings in aqua light and dark browns. I finished off the card by adding some Love From Lizi Pin-stripe Peel-offs in Gold Mirror Moondust and Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ripened Pumpkin and Caribbean Ocean.

On the inside I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5″X11″ to 4 x 5-1/4″ and added a piece of Happy Harvest Paper Pad from the Happy Harvest Fall Kit, measuring 1-1/4 x 4” to the bottom. I stamped a “HAPPY THANKSGIVING” sentiment from the kit with Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso Ink.

Dimensions

For the third card, I cut down a piece of Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″ to make a card base. Then cut a piece of the pattern paper to 4 x 5-1/4″ Happy Harvest Paper Pad (may be unavailable) from the Happy Harvest Fall Kit (may be unavailable) for the top panel and adhered it to the card base.

Next, I created a double shaker element using the sunflower dies and shaker pieces using some of the Happy harvest pattern paper in the kit. I added some of the toppings in brown to the center and yellow ones to the sunflower portion.

I diecut leaves from the Catherine Pooler Fallen Leaves Dies from some of the green glitter paper included. I adhered the sunflower shaker to the card panel and then I diecut several of the sunflower frame the same striped pattern paper as the background and placed them on the paper, matching the stripes so that it appears as it is embossed. I adhered the stem and leaves.

I stamped the “Harvest Blessings” onto a piece of a brown polka dot using Versamark Ink and Wow White Opaque Embossing Powder, making sure to prep the surface with anti-static powder beforehand. I popped it up onto the card with some 3M Foam Tape and finished off the card with some Nuvo Glitter Drops in Orange Soda.

On the inside I stamped a “HAPPY THANKSGIVING” sentiment from the kit with Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake Ink. And that completes this card.
