I finally got my Shakers & Sprinkles Make It Market Kit last week. I splurged on it back in May and then had to wait two long months to get it. Not sure I'll do that again, but I was pretty excited to get this kit despite the drama. I fell in love with the dies most of all, but I also love the stamps and luscious sprinkle/sequin mixes!
I spent the day over a friend's house who I don't see often, but is one of the few friends I have that love to stamp. I got to check out her new Stampin' Up goodies as well. :) I stamped out a few cute Chubby Chums images from her Paper Smooches stamps, so hopefully you'll see some cards using those soon. We both made shaker cards using my new kit.
I haven't made a shaker card in years and these dies made it super easy,
especially with the full sheet double-sided adhesive foam included in
the kit. Not to mention all the other goodies!
Bet that made you smile! It's so pretty and cheerful in person. I used one of the patterned papers from the kit for the background. I stamped the sunrays image in Harvest Gold ink on the white oval, as well as the word "sunshine" in black ink. That's where I messed up slightly. After adhering the white oval to the back of the sticky foam, I realized I hadn't had my oval straight when stamping. It's not super obvious, but the oval is slightly tilted on the card to keep my sentiment straight. lol Oops!
I used Harvest Gold cardstock for my frame and Summer Sunrise cardstock for the diecut word "scatter". Obviously, I got those colors from the sequins and patterned paper. I added glitter to the word before gluing it in place.
I love glitter on cards. It adds so much pizzazz. A girl has to have a little bling! Don't you just love that sequin mix? Such darling little flowers. I had fun making this card. :)
