was day 3 of summer – will today be day 4? Possibly, but it’s amazingly windy. No doubt it’ll bring the clouds over!
It’s so sad that I count our
summer in single-digit days! LOL……..or I’ll cry!
morning I uploaded my video which shows how very easy it is to make a
shaker card using our fabulous new Adhesive Foam Strips.
If you saw the
video I made showing all the goodies I received from the new annual
catalogue, during the pre-order, you may recall that I said to let me
know if there was anything in particular you’d like to see me do.
the requests I received was for a video showing how to make a shaker
card using Painter’s Palette.
Using the new strips makes an amazing difference!
Previously, we’d cut strips from
the edges of Dimensionals sheets and then they were only half the
height of the new strips – 1/16″ against 1/8″ – so we had to double layer them!
As I didn’t have
any Washi Tape in Flirty Flamingo, I decided to use Designer Series
It worked well but I think it may have looked better had I made
the strips more narrow. Overall, I’m happy with the card.
Then I went on
to make the Night of Navy card because I do have suitable Washi Tape.
I kept to
the same design although I changed the sprinkles from stars to hearts
and I think this was a mistake.
The shaker cards I made with stars, were
really good “shakers” but the hearts kept bunching up!
If you look at the Flirty Flamingo card, it looks packed with shakers, but it still shakes really well.
The stars are definitely smaller and all vary in size.
I used Cucumber Crush for the card I made in the video and stars for the shaker – the result was very satisfying.
Yesterday, I had my latest Stampin Up! order delivered and it includes the Limited Edition Thoughtless Branches Stamp Set and coordinating dies.
Hopefully, I’ll be working with it today, so watch this space! Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
