Pink & Main – Sending Sunshine & Smiles Shaker Card

Welcome crafty friends! I’m over on the Pink & Main blog today with another peek at the upcoming release for April. We had a little flub last week and were rushing the month faster than we meant to. So you get two weeks of sneak peeks instead of one.

Today’s design started one way and definitely didn’t turn out as planned. But when this happens we just improvise or make changes. No big deal. The original plan was to put that sweet mushroom on top of the “h” in hi but it just wasn’t working for me. I went back to the drawing board and found these other sweet images in a different upcoming set and thing the end result is pretty darn cute!

The layered scallops rectangle die set is fabulous and comes with two sizes of scallop layers and two sizes of stitched rectangles to give a finished look on top, PLUS the awesome giant “hi” and even more! Such an amazing set and made it really easy with a little acetate and foam tape to create a shaker.

Today’s shaker filler is sparkling cotton candy flock with glitter. It just seems to float around when you shake it which is so fun and doesn’t add a bunch of extra bulk or weight to the card.

My images come from Sunshine Days and Mush Love. The are from Mommy Lhey is just adorable and so fun to color and create with. You’re going to love these new sets so much!

I chose to stamp and heat emboss my sentiment in grape soda embossing powder on vellum before die cutting it and carefully adhering it with a thin layer of liquid glue. Isn’t it a fun touch?

For finishing touches I added black glaze pen to the butterfly and sun’s eyes and stardust Stickles to elements of the cloud, sun, mushroom and butterfly. A little extra sparkle never hurt anyone and I love it!
