Altenew and Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop

Hello!

Today I'm participating an awesome collaboration of Altenew and Pretty Pink Posh. You probably just came from Lisa Elton's blog if not, please start at the beginning from Altenew blog and hop along and have many chances to win prizes along the way.



A few week's back I made my first shaker card and I had so much fun making it so I decided to try to make another. I used a co-ordianting die to cut my shaker window and I used the same die to cut the shaker "space" from fun foam. I found that making a shaker card this way was very easy since you can just glue the layers together. So here is my card:





I made this into a video tutorial. You can watch it here or in HD in Youtube.




Supplies:
Stamps: Bejewelled and Striped Florals from Altenew
Sequins: Lilac Garden Flowers Sequins Mix from Pretty Pink Posh
Dies: Bejewelled Die from Altenew
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Onyx Black, Picked Rasperry Distress Ink
Superfine Silver Embossing Powder by Ranger
Copic Markers: 0 - N0 - N1 - N3 - N5
Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen
