Shaker of Joy

Monday, December 14, 2015

Been busy, busy, busy working on Christmas cards, shopping, cleaning, etc.  I'm glad there's still about nine days left before I have to panic!  LOL

Again, I almost forgot to post this card for this past week's Muse Challenge.  I think I need to start setting my alarm for reminders.  I just make one card, then go on to the next and sometimes they just stack up!

It's been a while since I made a shaker card and I had some new Christmas shaped sequins so I made my rendition of the Muse a shaker. I used a Heidi Swapp stencil and Heidi Swapp Art Screen Ink (it's like the molding paste) for the background.  It actually came out looking a little silvery.  The shaker contents are tree sequins, clumpy glittery, a little green and raspberry glitter and iridescent sequins.  Usually I make my shaker to fit inside the background as well, but this time I wanted it to be more defined on top as an ornament.  The sentiment is from Ellen Hutson and stamped in Pink Pirouette.  I finished it off with a silver bow.





Blessings of Joy!

I love this, Nance! I've yet to make a shaker card. That's something we'll have to work on in 2016. Love the pink and green with that pretty silver bow!
Take time to breathe, my friend!

To turn this into a shaker is just brilliant and those glittery dots - awesome!

Gorgeous shaker card; a most wonderful translation of Joan's MUSE inspiration! I'm especially crushing over the pops of colour in the shaker! WOW! Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a sweet comment; you've started my Monday with a smile!
