Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
It's the first wintery day here in Calgary. The snow is blowing and falling and it really feels like a regular fall for this area. Of course it will be summery again by Friday but that's the sort of thing that happens out here on the prairies.
In an effort to spread warmth, I thought I would share a fun shaker. Yep! More pumpkin spice! YAY!!
To begin, I used my outside stitched rectangle to remove my window from a piece of 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock. From that piece I stamped the mug from Lawn Fawn's "Pumpkin Spice" stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink; then coloured it with Copic markers.
I also stamped a bunch of the little shakers and cut them out using the Brother 2 Scan N Cut. I cannot tell you how much I love this machine.
For the front panel I sponged Dried Marigold and Rusty Hinge Distress inks to colour the panel, when it comes to creating that fall red this is my favourite combination. I splattered that with clean water and blotted it dry with some paper towel. Then I set it aside to dry completely.
I then stamped my greeting using Lawn Fawn's Black Licorice ink for the first and last part, and CTMH Autumn Terracotta ink for the "Pumpkin Spice".
Once that was done, I put together my shaker card. Instead of having all the shakers at the bottom, I glued a couple of the to the back panel of the window. So now, even when the card is upright there's still something there.
Finally I adhered my mug directly to the front of the window, then mounted the whole piece to the front of a standard A2 sized card base.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar or over on Facebook. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
