It was another really nice day here yesterday! I’m liking their forecast that we are to have a warm December! Hopefully that will carry into January, February and March as well! I had a very productive day yesterday! I was at my friend Sue’s most of the day working on some listings for Etsy. I spoke to Michael for a bit and then headed back home to have some dinner with the ‘rents! After dinner I came home and puttered around the house for a bit and then watched a movie. Today I’m going to be productive again and get some little errands done that I have been putting off and spend some quality time in the Stampin’ Galley too!
Today is Tuesday and it’s time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! This week we have a sketch from Maggie…
My card starts with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The panel on the card is a shaker… shocker! LOL! I used the Simon Says Stamp Snowflake Block Die to cut out a piece of Solar White 110lb and the center from a piece of Smoky Slate. A piece of Acetate is adhered to the back of the Smoky Slate with Scor-Tape and the snowflake panel is adhered to the acetate in the cut out with Elmer’s Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. Two layers of Foam Tape around the back make a nice well for my shaker material. I added some “Vintage” Frosted Sequins and Silver Seed Beads before adhering a piece of Night of Navy to the back. Three banners, also cut form Night of Navy, are adhered to the card with SNAIL and then the shaker is adhered with more Scor-Tape. My greeting is from the PinkFresh Studios Christmas Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Ranger Silver Embossing Powder on Vellum. I flagged the left side of the Vellum and adhered it to the card with Ranger Multi-Matte Medium. As simple as a shaker can get! I’m still loving that Snowflake Block Die and the great blue, white and grey color combo! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper sketch challenge from Maggie!

Stunning card Justin! The color balance and placement of the elements is absolutely perfect. Fab color combo!
Thank you Dana! Have a great day! 🙂
Your card is absolutely elegant! I love your shaker cards and also love the blue and white, especially the snowflakes on the acetate. It reminds me of a snowy day with the sun shining. That being said, I think the three flags at different levels really catches the eye. Fantastic job!
Cold and dreary here today. I had plans for wrapping gifts today but instead we had two sets of visitors so I have not accomplished the tasks I had in store but instead got to sit and talk with friends. I’d say that was a good way to start the week. Have yourself a Terrific Tuesday my friend. Love and hugs, XO 🙂
Thank you! I always have fun making a shaker and I really do love that Snowflake Block Die!
It has been really nice here! I even had the top down in the car yesterday! Sometimes it’s nice when plans change like that! Love to you! XOXO 🙂
