I had a fun day of stamping today. I haven't stamped anything in a couple of weeks! It took me a while to get going but once I did, I was on a roll. I am getting things ready for my Stamp Clubs next week. We are going to do shaker cards using Stampin' Up's new shaker frames. They are double-sided adhesive foam circles that let you make any card a shaker card! Five of the foam circles are sized to coordinate with a variety of SU's Circle Punches. You get 36 total circles: 6 of ea. size. I haven't done a shaker card in several years and when I used to make them, I used bits of foam tape on the image. The shaker frames make it so much easier!
I was trying not to use the larger frames since I want to save them for my clubs. So I took a couple of the smaller frames and cut them and made them into a larger circle. Just make sure you make the ends meet so your filler doesn't fall out.
Here's the finished card. I used Gift Givers stamp set along with Serene Snowflakes. I used Mica Flakes for the filler.

Here is another shaker card that I made also. This time I used Holiday Lineup, one of my all time favorite sets.

Another stamp set that will work good for a Christmas shaker is Snow Much Fun. I want to make a shaker of just the snowman's belly! Maybe tomorrow!!
Meanwhile, my kitchen should be finished tomorrow!! Sonny did a lot of the painting yesterday and he hopes to finish tomorrow. Here are a few before and after pictures.
