Hello everyone! Welcome back! Katty here to share a fun Shaker card. I began with a circular card floral cut file from the Silhouette Studio. I fell in love with this card the moment I saw it. I am drawn to anything floral.
I decided to add my sentiment behind the shaker area. I used a stamp set from Teresa Collins and Heat Embossed the word “Bloom” using white embossing powder. I then filled the shaker area with the Indian Summer Mix, which are beautiful orange sequins. I also aded a border around the card using the flatback green sequins from the A Day in the Woods Mix.
I love how this turned out. It just screams Spring.
There is a video on my channel if you’d like to watch.
Hi Folks, Laura here today with a quick post sharing a fun shaker card.
I was sorting through my sequins and decided to mix the last few from a couple of different mixes together. I had some pinks from Magical Ocean and yellow and gold from Sunny Smiles. These were the exact colours of a vase of flowers I had on my bookshelf, so I knew they would work together. Now that I have completely used up these two mixes I have space for two more!!
I grabbed a doily and carefully cut the centre out using a craft knife. Rather than use foam tape as I usually would I used glue gel to pop up and adhere the shaker. I preferred the clear gel in this instance as the foam tape would have shown through doily.
I tied a length of ribbon around the card, and added an extra bow, in colours matching the sequins. A small stamped greeting finished it all off. I challenge you to think about your supplies a little differently… what can you make a shaker from?!
Here we are on day number 3 of this fabulous weekend! The Sparklers and our guests have totally inspired me to try a few new things and I’m just so thankful and thrilled to have them creating with me! Today, we are welcoming the wonderful Bonita Rose to the hop. I cannot wait to see what she created especially for today 🙂 Let’s get today’s party started with the line up!
Jody here again!! For today’s layout I wanted to accent patterned paper with mixed media. I thought this would be a little tricky with this map paper from Fancy Pants Good Fellows collection. I’ve played around the highly technical packaging technique ‘smooshing’ on patterned paper and found that the mixed media isn’t as forgiving as it is on cardstock. The mixed media tends to soak in, like immediately!
So, I decided to let more of the patterned paper show on this layout since it compliments my bike riding theme. I only accented smaller areas and the edges with some Keep Palm & No Yolking Coloringz and added my favorite Chunky Cork Stars! I’m really happy with how this turned out, especially since masculine layouts are not my strong point. I also used some Marmalade Distress Ink to ink up the edges of my layout to really define it.
Happy Saturday and welcome back to our Triple Hop weekend!! Today we have more of the Sparklers DT girls AND three awesome guests ready to inspire you. Welcome Missy Whidden, Alex Hunter and Karla Yungwirth!! Thank you so much for joining us and sharing your creativity with the SMS fans!
Today is all about SEQUINS and all the creative things you can do with them in your paper crafting. There is so much more to sequins than just shaker cards and today we want to knock your sparkly socks off, so let’s get started! Here’s today’s sparkly line-up:
It’s Jody here on the SMS blog and I’m totally thrilled! Today, I’m kicking off Sequin Saturday with this fun layout. I started off by creating my background with Shimmerz Dazzlerz Pucker Up Pink and watering it down with a a few sprays of H2O. I smooshed it around on a plastic Ziplock baggie. I put my hand inside the Ziplock and used my fingers to smoosh & kind of stamp my color onto my American Crafts white cardstock.
Next, I added Pink Paislee branding stripes along the middle to ground everything. Then I added more layers from there, beginning with some black cardstock from my scraps bin. I knew I wanted to pull in black because I already had my title planned out. I added a few messy layers behind my 4×4″ black & white photo and then mounted it all onto the black cardstock, backed with craft foam for some dimension.
In my layout I used my Summer Sunset sequins (which you can pre-order now) to accent the direction & angle at which my girls are “dabbing.” Using sequins to accent movement in a layout really helps your eye move naturally across your layout. Give it a try! Pull out action photos such as a sporting event, children dancing, running, etc. Use the sequins as an extentsion of the energy flowing from your photo or photos.
Another fun thing I did on this layout is add some stamping by pulling stamps from my stash. The “Carefree” stamp is a mystery to me BUT the “#together” stamp is from an American Craft super cute roller date stamp set.
The black die cut heart is from the free SpiegelMom Scraps cut file “Mermaid Hair Don’t Care” found here.
Finally, here’s a close up of the smooshed Pucker Up Pink & water with the Summer Sunset sequins.
Thank you for spending your time with us again today! Next, you’re on to Missy and all the awesomeness on her blog!!

Hello friends! Katty Miranda here to share a fun birthday shaker card. I made this card for a good friend. I am loving this months new sequin mixes. They are so fun. For my card I began with a blue cardstock base. I then took a grey and white stripe paper from the Jen Hadfield Home Made collection. I cut a piece slightly smaller than the blue cardstock. I then cut a rectangle out of the center of that stripe paper and I added foam mounting take to the outer edge of the rectangle. I used this to create a shaker area in the center. I used some of the lovely new Passion Flower sequins as well as some of the Gold Stardust and the Gold Sequin Confetti. I added a piece of foam tape in the center where I knew my sentiment would cover it.
For my sentiment I used a Hero Arts stamp set called Chalkboard Style Messages(CL810) and black StazOn Ink. This card turned out very simple but very pretty. I hope my friend loves it!
Hi all, Lea’s here. I made a card to accompany a small gift for a friend … a printing with GELLI plate suggested me to use it to create the base of the card, I distressed all sides and I created two snatches from which come out pieces of lace. I attached this base to a slightly larger cardstock and to which I attached the washi tape all along the perimeter, so as to create a frame to the printed base. I added half doily paper and the net, and in the middle I created a thickness with cardboard and where I attacked a cutout printed clipping and I added the sentiment. Two delicious clothespins enrich the title. I added to complete the new and beautiful sequins mix, Alma Mater.
