Celebrate the LittleThings - Shaker Card
Today is all about celebrating the little things - those little achievements that typically get overlooked. Some days (actually…most days) it's all we have.
Summer is a great time to enjoy a fruity celebration. Whether you prefer a glass of sparkling water, fruit juice or something with a bit more kick, I've got you covered. Glam things up a bit by serving your preferred beverage in a special glass -something a bit fancy. We are celebrating after all.
I am presenting a fun margarita shaker glass from Creative Embellishments filled with the cutest shaker mix from Buttons Galore and More.
Repurposed Paper andSentiment - From Baby to Cocktails
We recently had our first grandchild, a little girl, and I wanted adorable paper for special baby cards.
I purchased Doodlebug's - Bundle of Joy Collection because the colors and patterns are joyful and make me smile.
Re-purposing supplies is a cool way to stretch your supplies and budget. This is a great example of using paper collections for other than the intended purpose. While the collection theme is the celebration of a baby girl, most of the patterns in this sweet Doodlebug collection lack any reference to babies. Setting the baby theme aside, the colors actually remind me of a fun fruit salad - or how about a fun fruity summer drink? Yep - that too.
And that's how baby paper became my summer cocktail paper. Makes sense, right?
Circling back to the baby theme again. The shower theme was baby animals and it so happened FSJ Fun Stampers Journey/ Spellbinders has a darling Baby Farm Animals Stamp Set. How lucky am I!
Today's economy favors those products that are versatile and can be repurposed.
In the process of finding the perfect sentiment for my fun cocktail shaker card, I pulled this stamp set out again and used my all-time fave sentiment stamping ink, Black Licorice True Color Fusion
from Spellbinders/ Fun Stampers Journey.
Do not overlook the sentiments on your stamp sets.
This card features some other Spellbinders products as well.
Thedecorative oval die is from Spellbinders Elegant Twist Collection by Becca Feeken. I love oval dies because they are so versatile and such a card making staple. This die has added pizzaz.
Once again, I'll tell you how much I love Spellbinders Black Licorice True Color Fusion Ink Pad
for stamping sentiments and images. My favorite ink for clarity and small details and doesn't bleed.
I have a few other products I need to mention because they have added such convenience to my shaker making crafty life. These are products I love when using Creative Embellishments - Shaker Sets.
The Crystal Ninja CRYSTAL KATANA Mixed Media Pick Up Tool and Nuvo - Deluxe Adhesive for gluing the shaker layers together. This dries crystal clear and has a super fine tipfor apply small thin lines of adhesive.
