Teach Me Tuesday: Shaker Cards

Hi there my friends! I have some exciting news to share with you today. I've been stupid busy lately with work and stamping and just life in general, but things are going to get way more fun in a few more days. If you've been hanging around me for any length of time, you may know that I have been dreaming of quitting my full-time job and going full-time Stampin' Up for quite some time.

Well guess what? That day has arrived! My official last day in the office is September 29th, making me a full-time Stampin' Up demonstrator as of October! And I've already got a super busy schedule lined up. I'm so excited!

In  my excitement I thought I'd try something new. So let me introduce you to Teach Me Tuesday. This will hopefully become a series of videos -- and I'm not committing to every week yet, but whenever I feel like I have something to share with you (on a Tuesday... ha ha) -- well, there will be a Teach Me Tuesday video. :)

So today, the Teach Me Tuesday Video is focused on shaker cards. I sort of got addicted to making them a couple of weeks ago after doing one for my Stamp of the Month class. Then a friend saw it and wanted a class featuring all shaker cards -- so I made four more! So today, I'm going to share with you how to make two different types of shaker cards.

Here is the first one that started my shaker binge. It features the Jar of Love stamp set and the coordinating Everyday Jars framelits.


Here are the products I used for this card:
Jar of Love Stamp Set
Everyday Jars Framelits
(Get the bundle! It's cheaper!)
Pool Party Ink
Bermuda Bay Ink
Basic Black Ink
Mica Flake Trio Pack
Window Sheets

I also used Crumb Cake (#120953), Bermuda Bay (#131197), Basic Black (#121045), Daffodil Delight (#119683) and Whisper White (#100730) cardstock.

Okay, second up is a fun holiday shaker card. The card is created a bit differently than the one I made above and I show you how to make both of them in the video below. Here is the card:


Fun, right? Here are the supplies I used for this one:

Hang Your Stocking Stamp Set
Christmas Stockings Thinlits
(Get the bundle!)
Window Sheets
Mini Jingle Bells
Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine

And here is the video! I hope you enjoyed it... please leave me some love if you like the Teach Me Tuesday video idea... and if you have some things you'd like me to "teach" you - let me know that, too! And just so you know... I chatted a bit too much this time so the video ends rather abruptly. Oops! I'll be better next time... promise! :)





Have a wonderful Tuesday!
