Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Snowglobe Shakers + Newton’s Nook Designs

Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Snowglobe Shaker using Newton's Nook Sweater Weather

Happy Monday crafty friends! It’s Nina-Marie here with you today, and I will be sharing a cute snowglobe shaker card set that features the Newton’s Nook Design’s Sweater Weather stamp set (and their Vegetable Garden set for the sentiment)!

Because the Sweater Weather stamp set has such a cute winter theme, I thought it would be fun to put the critters in a snow globe. By sprinkling sequins and seed beads from Pretty Pink Posh inside, it really captures the “snowy” feel perfectly! For the snow globe, I used the Lawn Fawn Ready, Set Snow stamp set and Ready, Set, Snow Shaker Add On die set.

I watercolored the images with Zig Clean Color markers and fussy cut them out; however, if you are not a “fussy-cut-person”, there are coordinating dies available for this stamp set. Because I stamped the images onto watercolor paper, I find it very helpful to use the Tim Holtz Mini Snip scissors. These scissors are not only very sharp (perfect for thicker papers), but they also have a small enough point to get around most corners/small areas.

These cards are also a perfect example at how you can pair supplies from different brands or stamp companies to create the exact look you are going for; by doing so, you open a whole big world of creative possibilities! Honestly, you are only limited by your imagination! :)

And if you are new to shaker cards, I want to give you this word of encouragement! Today’s card is a very simple shaker to create and I will be walking you through the steps I took in creating it from start to finish in the video below. I’ll also be sharing some tips on adding the foam tape around a curved area, as with the dome of the snow globe.

  1. Nina–once again you have awed me with your fun and creative cards! They brought such a smile to my face as I’m sure they would to anyone who received one of these cute cards. Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. I’m sure I am the only one in the world who has never made a shaker card. I thought I could figure out how it was done and when I watched your video, which was good by the way, you did it the way I thought a shaker card should be made. I have a question though. I don’t have a die cutter. Can I still make a shaker card without one? I want to try making one so bad!

  3. These are just too cute! I love this stamp set and how you’ve colored them. So cute for winter and Christmas and going on my wish list! Thank you for the tutorial and inspiration :-)

  4. Shaker cards are on my list for 2017 and I appreciate the inspiration! I will get busy with creating after our move— I am trying to accomplish some creating at this time but I am limited again on supplies – these are totally lovely! Shake, SHake, Shake!!

  5. I check this blog every morning to see what inspiration you have in store for us! I love the sweet card Nina made today!
