Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Snowglobe Shakers + Newton’s Nook Designs
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.
I hope you all will be checking out the video and be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel and blog so that you never miss any of our daily posts (that’s 365 days full of inspiration!)! Thanks for visiting me today and have a great rest of the week!

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!
These cards are just adorable! I love shaker cards and these are just amazing!
