Well hello there and Happy Friday! Today I have a fun shaker card to share with you featuring stamps from Newton’s Nook Designs!
And did you know that Newton’s Nook is having a special naming vote for the adorable little bunny that is featured in many of their previous stamp sets?? Be sure to read through to the end of this post to find out how YOU can help us name this cute little girl!!
So how about some inspiration using this cute little bunny? I’ve created a fun and festive shaker card for today, which is perfect for a birthday or other celebrations.
The bunny in this card is from the Touchdown Tails stamp set, which was released last fall. I love the sports theme of the set because a lot of my family and friends are sports fans and makes this a perfect set for creating cards for all of them!
I started off by stamping the little bunny onto white cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink; I then colored the bunny in with my Copics. I will break down the colors below, and they are also linked over to Simon Says Stamp down in the products section at the bottom of this post:
- bunny: E0000, E50, E30, E43 (body); RV00, R21 (cheeks)
- pom-pom: Y000, Y21
- cheerleader outfit: RV55, RV66
Once my image was colored, I fussy cut her out using fine tip scissors.
My shaker is created using a Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Circle die, which I die cut from cardstock-covered craft foam. The foam piece is layered under a piece of transparency, and a second cardstock scallop frame (this time without the foam), it adhered overtop.
I then attached my bunny to the inside of the shaker, which is filled with sequins from Pretty Pink Posh (Fairytale Fuchsia, Lime Sorbet, Pink Blush, Sunshine Glow, Gold Stars, Lemon Meringue, Sparkling Clear and Iridescent mini stars). Normally I put my critters outside a shaker, but for this card I chose to add the bunny inside instead so as to appear as if she is throwing confetti around her to celebrate something! :)
My shaker element is layered onto a 4 1/4″ square card base; there is a slightly smaller panel layered between the card base and the shaker which is stamped in Squeezed Lemonade distress ink using a My Favorite Things background stamp.
And because I wanted to keep with the bunny-throwing-confetti idea, I used a mixture of the same sequins in my shaker to create falling “confetti” cascading down the card! I love the fun effect it gives, what do you think?
If you liked today’s card and want more shaker card inspiration, here are a few other recent shakers that I have created! Click on the photos to be taken to the corresponding posts.
