This month’s lovely cut file was designed by Laura Rumble, who is on the Sparklers DT for the 2nd year.  I’ve been such a fan of Laura for a long time so I was very excited that she designed this month’s cut file.  This would be perfect for a card front, or enlarged on a layout!  Bravo Laura!!

Starting today through October 31, there is an InLinkz linky tool in the right sidebar where you can link up a project created using this FREE cut file.  You’ll have all month to play along and link up!  Just right click on the photo (PNG file) and save it to your computer.  A randomly drawn winner will receive some awesome new releases coming November 1st, including sequins, cork and a Shimmerz Paints product of their choice!!!!  Yippee!!!!!

Hi everyone, Mandi here for your Tuesday Talent series. Today, I will be focusing on the Natural Burlap String Navy Blue Burlap String Gold Sequin Confetti and Silver Stardust Sequin Confetti products. The pattern paper I used on this card was from Fancy Pants “Good Fellows” collection. All of these are going to be used on a fun shaker card, which just happens to work for a guy’s birthday. We all know it is hard to make a fun guy card.

Collages

The shaker frame was so easy to make.

  1.  Adhered a piece of plastic (I used a piece of a page protector) to the backside of the chipboard frame.
  2.  Attached foam tape (I didn’t have any so I used foam squares) alone the four edge.
  3. Place sequins inside.
  4. Stamp image/sentiment to pattern paper that is the same size as frame
  5. adhere backing to frame.

To adhere the cork shapes, I applied adhesive to them with the x sticker maker from Xyron. I then laid the the cork stickers on top of the string, this acted as a tape to attached the string.

Thanks for stopping by and I hoped I showed you that sequins / shaker boxes can be used on guy cards.
