New Waffle Flower: Gym Rat Slider Shaker Card

Hello everyone! I am so so excited to be here at Simon Says Stamp with a new video featuring some of the new products from Waffle Flower Craft’s June Release. In today’s video I demonstrate how to create a fun interactive card with the new Gym Rat Stamp Set and matching dies! I cannot get over the cuteness of this set! Plus the awesome 80’s vibe! I’m in love!! Let’s get started!

First, I stamped the rainbow background using the Plaid Play Stamp Set and Waffle Flower dye inks (My Pleasure, Oh Happy Day, You Said What, Chirp Chirp, Daydreaming, & Happy Go Lucky) onto an A2 panel (4.25” x 5.5”) of white cardstock. With the background complete, I moved onto creating my shaker hamster ball. First, I stamped a hamster and the wheel from the Gym Rat Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a scrap of white cardstock. I then created a quick mask by stamping the wheel onto a post-it note and then cutting the center out with scissors. I then nestled the mask into the center of the wheel stamp, inked up the stamp, removed the mask and then stamped it. This created a wheel with nothing in the center.

Next, I colored the hamster with copic markers and then die cut it and the wheels out with the Gym Rat Matching Dies. I also die cut a piece of acetate and craft foam with the wheel die as well. Next, I fussy cut the stand off of both the cardstock wheels and then cut the center out of the wheel I didn’t mask creating a ring. I then used the masked wheel as a guide and traced where to cut and then cut to remove the stand on the craft foam and acetate wheels as well. Next I adhered the cardstock wheel with the center removed onto the acetate. I then cut the center out of the craft foam wheel and then adhered that to the top of the remaining cardstock wheel. To finish off the shaker, I popped the hamster inside and then adhered the acetate wheel on top.

Next, stamped my sentiment onto my rainbow panel and then I created a channel for my hamster ball to slid in by die cutting the largest die from the Sentiments Die set into the panel. I then adhered the sentiment die cut to an A2 top-folding card base turned on its side and then added doubled up foam tape around it. Then, making sure I had a penny in place, I adhered the front panel onto the foam tape. Next, I doubled up a small amount of foam tape, rounded the edges, and then adhered it to the penny. Lastly, I adhered the shaker hamster ball to the foam tape on the penny.
