Inspired By Stamping: Seed Pack Shaker Cards


Hi, all!  I'm back with a fun card that uses gorgeous products from the Inspired By Stamping online store.  We are featuring our favorite techniques this week, and I chose to make a shaker card...with some faux stitching! :)  Come and take a look...


The shaker portion was made using stamps from the Garden Seed Packets stamp set.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  The window was cut using the Fancy Labels 3 dies.  I think shaker cards are super fun, and this seed packet was screaming to be made into one!


I used a variety of patterned papers and some fun cotton ribbon to finish this card up.  The faux stitching was created with a fine tip Sharpie pen.  I just love faux stitching--it looks real most of the time, but without having to get a machine out. ;)


The inside of my shaker is filled with some fun, bright, springtime fresh sequins that match the colors of my patterned papers.  I think it's really enjoyable to choose a fun shaker filling!  This one was pre-made, luckily, so all the guess work was taken out of it and I could work on pairing all the patterns together.


I really like the way this turned out!  The colors are fresh and fun, and I actually really like the way I colored the flower. :)  What do you think?  I'd love to hear in the comments below!


I'm entering this card into these fabulous challenges~




That's all for me today!  Thank you so much for stopping by--your visits make my day!  I hope you grab all these goodies from the Inspired By Stamping store today!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
