Back on the blog today with a new card & video, sharing a shaker card that I made using this gorgeous stamp set from Concord & 9th, called Crazy Awesome.
I did a bit of watercoloring with my Gelatos, that I really seem to like lately and it makes me happy to see that I get to use some of my supplies that I haven’t been using in a while! It happens so often to simply forget about the things I have, lol:)
So I started by stamping the floral cluster from the stamp set by following the circle that I have traced onto my watercolor cardstock. As always, I used my Canson paper. I also did some masking as I wanted to have more of those flowers stamped and that just filled my floral wreath.
Once all was colored and dried, I trimmed around the flowers and the leaves with my scissors so I was left with this huge colorful wreath to use for my shaker card. I really like the big circle stamp from the set, and because I wanted to incorporate it into my card, I stamped it and white heat embossed it on a piece of vellum. With all my elements ready, I created my shaker and mounted all onto a cream card base.
I had several try outs on this card and learned along the way where I kept making my mistakes. I just couldn’t get all those circle windows match with eachother and with the large circle stamp. So I used my MISTI and that made all so easy!
As always, you can check the how-to video right here on my blog or HERE if you wish to watch it on YouTube.
