Shake It Up

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.

This side of the room has not seen the paint yet - tomorrow though
