Hello friends, welcome back to a brand new Studio Monday! Today I have another clear shaker card to share with you, this time using some of our Simon exclusive stamps and dies! I also am going to share some inspiration on creating multicolored die cuts and a bit of easy Copic coloring, so let’s get to it!
For this card I have used the Birthday Wishes Frame die, as well as the Cuddly Critters Accessories stamp and die sets; all of these products are Simon exclusive and they are so much fun to use together.
I really like the versatility of the Cuddly Critters Accessories stamp set; while it is technically meant for using with the Cuddly Critters stamp set (which is so dang cute by the way!), it can also be used alone, like I have done here. The balloons that are included in the set are just the perfect shape for any style of card, and I like having the option of using either the heart or traditional circle… or both together! There are also coordinating dies that go with the Cuddly Critters Accessories set, which saves a lot of fussy cutting!
I wanted to create a clear shaker card today, and the Birthday Wishes Frame makes it SUPER easy to do so! I even did some multicolor die cutting, which I will be sharing a few tips on in today’s video (at the bottom of this post). What makes this die cut more unique than other frame dies, is that the brush script “birthday wishes” sentiment is attached to the frame, so everything die cuts as one whole piece. Pretty nifty, huh?? I will show you in the video below how I put this entire shaker card together, so be sure to stick around for that!
Inside the shaker I wanted to use colors that matched my balloons; so I grabbed some Pretty Pink Posh sequins in Marshmallow (4mm and 6mm), Aquamarine (4mm) and Sparkling Clear (6mm) to fill inside my shaker’s well. I think the way the sequin and balloons coordinate together looks fab!
