Shaker Cards

Hi everyone,

And a happy Friday evening to you all.

I've been admiring the shaker cards that seem to be "on trend" at the moment, in particular I've been inspired by recent cards made by the very talented Kim and Darnell.

So I thought I'd have a go ...

This one has been made with a free digi image from Handmade Harbour, so I'm linking this one to Midweek Papercraft Party.

Supplies Used
Cupcake digi by Handmade Harbour, coloured with Promarkers and the topping is coated with glossy accents.
Stampin' Up Card and DP

My second one is for the current challenge over at The Card Concept, which is "Monochromatic Purple". My card fits the "Clean and Simple" category.

Supplies Used:
Hero Arts butterfly stamp and matching die
3 different purple inks
Stampin' Up butterfly embosslit
Purple sequins

Okay, that's me for this evening.  Here's hoping we get some nice weather for this May Day weekend.

Thanks for popping in
Take care

Suze xx

You've got the shaker card down now, for sure! Love the butterfly - the moving sequins add to the flutteriness (see I can make up new words!) So glad you joined us at the Card Concept!
