Hello everyone!….well there’s only a couple of days left in July and what a stormy, wet and windy July it has been here. The amount of rain we have had, is unheard of. It seems every time I look out the window it’s chucking it down!
It’s time again for another challenge with Just Add Ink! This week we have a colour challenge with 2 of the In-colours and Basic Black.
I used the Art Gallery Stamp Set to make a floral card.
The Design Team used the colors in a variety of ways. To see their beautiful projects go to Just Add Ink. Perhaps you might join the Challange too.
Nikki suggested that we “Just Add a Shaker” for our Just Add Ink Challenge this week – I was wrapped about that – cause I love Shaker cards. They are really fun to make, send and receive.
Shaker Cards that I have previously made, usually include a window front design, with one or two types of “shakeable” materials sandwiched between two tightly sealed layers, so that the shaker contents are visible.
For this challenge though, I decided to make what I am calling an “Open Shaker Card”
I made a window that goes all the way through the card. I then strung a whole load of beads on some thread and placed them in the window. So they “Shake” up and down on the strings.
I used the Plentiful Plants Stamp set with a retired die and embossing folder.
While playing with Shaker cards this week I also made another Sunflower Shaker that was based on a card I made about 15 years ago, while going to some card classes in NZ.
I used the Sunflower dies to create an inlaid Sunflower and then turned that into a Shaker.
Here is the original Shaker that I made in class all those years ago……..
So now I have shown you a few different Shaker Cards, you can go to Just Add Ink to see what the Design Team have made and share your Shaker Cards with us too.
