Season's Giving Blog Hop




Welcome to this years 
Season's Giving Blog Hop!
(A list of all the blogs to hop on through are at the bottom of my post)

I'm super thrilled to be joining this talented group and be able to share
some of my unloved stash!
(unfortunately mailing only to the US)
I hope you'll be able to make it through my pictorial
and leave some comment love for your chance to
WIN a box full of goodies!!!
Let's get started shall we?

Today's card is a SHAKER...



Supplies needed:
Die cut shape, stamp set of your choice, Hero Arts Shadow Inks (not shown), Tombow markers, vellum, microbeads or sequins (basically anything you want to put in for a shaker)
Lay out pieces to create design of your choice.  I chose to go with a circle shaker with the Hawaiian Islands in my shaker and sentiment to be on the top and bottom of my shaker.  Once happy with your layout start die cutting circle!



I used some painter's tape to make sure my circle die cut stayed where I wanted it to, then ran through my Big Shot Pro.
I LOVE the latest
Simon Says Stamp Stitched dies!  They leave a stitched mark on either side of the cut line!!  Super cool!!!


On card front, stamp out sentiment and background stamp.  The sentiment was stamped slightly curved to follow the circle.  I decided to do a rainbow of ink colors using Hero Arts Shadow inks
 in Pale Tomato, Butter Bar, Green Hills, Pool and Grape Juice.
Place card panel on front of card to be able to center the inside stamped design of the shaker.


Tombow markers have been my latest coloring obsession
On back side of card front adhere vellum.  I decided to go with vellum because my card front was so full of color I wanted to mute the coloring of the Hawaiian islands a bit.


Then add foam tape to create a frame around the die cut image.  This will hold all of the shaker goodies!
I used some Martha Stewart microbeads in clear and blue with some leftover flower punches and placed in center of image on card front.


Remove foam tape backing and adhere to card front.  Make sure you have a good seal to keep all your shaker goodies in!

And there you have it!
Ta da....

   
MAHALO for making it through!
I hope you enjoyed that pictorial and if you aren't already following me
I hope you will!!
You can also find me on Instagram (StampnHI), Bloglovin', and Flikr'
so just click on over to those teal colored circles on the top right of my blog.

You'll have til January 5th (my dad's b-day) to comment to win
the loot below...


If you're going in order of the blog hop

  151. Hi! Shakers are all the rage right now. I have ordered some dies for just that purpose at Christmas. They are just so fun as you have shown with your fun card, I love that is like a map with ocean around it. I am part fish. My husband would love to visit Hawaii some day, he wants to do that bicycle ride down the volcano! I am just thinking, No. lol I've wrecked a bike or two as a kid and it's never good. I love paper crafting, die cutting and baking. Aloha and Happy New Year!
