Shaker Shaker EVERYWHERE!

Has this ever happened to you?  I made a shaker card yesterday and just after sticking the shaker part together the glue failed......result

Snow Dust, Ice Diamond & Micro Beads EVERYWHERE!

So after a few moments of ugghhh and clean up I started again and this is what I created.

I used the following supplies to create this project:- Chameleon Color Tone Pens and Pencils, Penny Black 30-447 Hedgy Joy (Hedgehog stamp), 30-441 Christmas Hugs (Little Bird),  51-389 Hedgy Joy Cut-Out (sentiment & hedgehog)  30-439 Gather Around (snowflake stamp), 51-372 Winter Branch die, 51-376 Stitch a Snowflake (smaller snowflake), 51-395 Snow Family Cut out (other small snowflakes), Aladine Izink Nuit, Mer du sun & Outremer Dye ink & White Pigment ink, Pinflair Iced Diamond and Snow Dust, Creative Expressions Micro Beads, white, blue and brown card and light blue patterned paper, sequins, dimensional foam and acetate, nesting circle dies, Stickles glitter.

How to 
  1. I die cut a circle from white card and added Izink Mer du sud ink using a blending tool, I then added the deeper shades of Nuit and Outremer to the outside edges.  Water was then flicked onto the circle to create a mottled effect and then the whole image given a muted frost by going over with a light application of white ink.
  2. The branch was die cut from brown and white card and both elements stuck together to give the appearance of snow on the branches. The bird was stamped with black dye ink and coloured with Chameleon pens & Pencils cut out and then all elements adhered to the card.
  3. A circle frame was cut from white card and acetate added, then filled with the shaker elements. and the coloured circle panel glued to the back.
  4. The Hedgehog was stamped using black dye ink and coloured with Chameleon pens then cut out using the corresponding die and then attached to the front of the shaker element.
  5. Snowflakes were cut from white card and the sentiment from blue card, the snow flakes were glittered with Stickles and then the elements arranged around the shaker panel.
  6. The patterned paper was distressed around the edges with Izink and small snowflakes stamped, all elements were then mounted onto the card and sequins added to finish.
I hope you enjoyed seeing today's project and that you do not suffer a similar fate to my shaker card disaster!!!

Hugs Cathy
