Hello everyone, Jackie here today with this cute shaped shaker card. This new collection from Joset is absolutely fantastic, the shaker die set is so versatile and can also be used without adding shaker parts so it is a must have set! Anyway let get started.

Step One:

First we need to create the circular card part. place a medium sized circular die on top of a top folding A2 card blank ensuring to leave a tiny bit over hanging at the top crease. You may have to run this through a few times as it will be quite thick.

Step two:

Die cut a further two circles. Ink blend one circle with a selection of blue inks then attach one to the front and one to the back making the card base more sturdy.

Step three:

Next we need to create the shaker window. Die cut a handful of circular frames and glue them all together, I have glued 5 together however you can make this part bigger by adding more layers.

Step four:

Use the inside of the metal frame die to draw a circular shape on to a piece of acetate then cut this out. Glue the prepared circular frame to the acetate, die cut one more circle and glue this to the reverse side then set the aside to dry. Tip: I find a white gel pen just about works on the acetate.

Step five:

Die cut lots of shaker bits and carefully lay them on top of the card base then glue the prepared acetate part on top. Set aside to dry with some weight on top to keep in nice a flat.

Step six:

Make up the bee as normal with two exceptions. Cut two of the same leg as he is flying and you will only need to use two wings. Use a little ink blending to add some dimension then add some white gel pen dots to finish the look.

Step seven:

Next we need to add the base stand. Die cut four of the stand pieces and glue two together (these need to be study) Glue one to the front and one to the back ensuring they line up when the card is shut. Add a sentiment strip, I have white heat embossed onto black card and popped this up on 3d foam pads.

Step eight:

Finish of by adding a flower, I have chosen to only add one flower but you could add as many as you wish.

It made a lovely change to make a shaped card and these shaker dies make the job really easy, I love that there is a shaker bits die included in the set too . . Thank you for stopping by today ‘Happy crafting’ Jackie xx

Hello all,

Esther’s new collection has become super fun again, really a party to work with. This time I would like to show you 2 shaker cards. The new set from Ester contains a super nice yarn card, which I used as a basis. The paper is from my own collection. I did use some stamps here and there to give it some extra detail.

Isn’t she cute, that nice girl sitting here doing crafts. it reminds me so much of my own daughters. Beautiful memories of when they were little.

For the 2nd card I also used a lamp from the latest Art-journal collection, it’s that nice too!

Die cut 2 yarn cards from design paper of your choice and reinforcements, I used the various circles but you can of course use what you like. Make an opening in a card with the rectangular die from the set.

I stick strips of double-sided foam tape on black cardstock and then I punched out another yarn card with an opening in the middle, just like the card made of design paper.

You stick a piece of acetate on it, I just used the plastic from the packaging, that works fine. In the shaker you put some nice shaking material of your choice. Stick the card with the hole in it over the acetate, the other card on the back. If you also want to stamp on the inside, as with card 2, do that before sticking it on. Dress up your card with some nice details such as a twig or an extra stamp. Put a string through the hole and your tag or card is ready. Nice with a gift or just to send just like that.

Also very nice in your own planner of course. 😋

See next time!

With love,

Happy Bunny

March 7, 2022

Hello everyone, Alice here again! Today I would like to show you another creation. It’s been sunny here all week so I felt like getting started with colors. I just love to work with a lot of color! This time I chose the cute bunny along with the easter eggs.

Behind the bunny is a shaking area. I used very nice shaking material for this. This contains small bunny’s. I love shaker material. Have a hole box full of it. I absolutly love it when it matches the animals. This shaker material is from Picket Fence. They combine perfectly with the characters.

I put the shaking material in a transparant bag. Close this well with clear double sided adhesive tape.

To nicely hide the shaking part I used the frame the floral burst background die (1801). You punch this out twice. You use part of it as a background. The second part is made into a frame. You cute out the middle part at 0.5 cm from the edges. In between you can confirme your shaking part.

On top of this you make the floral burst background part. This way you have processed your shaking part very neatly. For this creation I die cut the background die out of yellow cardstock.

After this I started working with the bunny and the decoration. This time I made everything out of colored cardstock. I did edit the edges with ink. Normaly I color everything with ink. Bute today I wanted to use the brighter colors of cardstock. This bunny is wearing his beautiful bow again today. I made these from the same paper as the background of the whole.

The bunny is sitting comfortably in the grass. Here also some nice easter eggs and of course tasty carrots for him.

Above the bunny a colorful bow of hemp cord. These in the same color as the shaking material and the easter eggs.

Behind this part another cheerful checkered design paper. Again in the same colors. Finally made this entirely on silk finish cardstock.

This was my creation this time. I hope it makes you happy as I do.

Until next time! Lovely greets Alice Brinks

Snow Globe Shaker Card

December 22, 2021

Hi Friends and welcome to my last blog post for the year for Elizabeth Craft Designs. It was a little over a year ago when I first began my journey with Elizabeth Crafts. Creating with their florals and A5 Planner dies this past year has been so much fun. I just couldn’t close out my year without sharing one final Christmas Card. 

At this point, I am not sure what 2022 will bring with Elizabeth Craft Designs, but I hope you love my final project. 

The florals were designed using Florals 12. I know I have shared a lot of projects with these florals but Christmas to me isn’t just a day, it isn’t just a month, it’s a season. And this Season my family and I have much to be thankful for!  So with Christmas season upon us, I set out to create one last Christmas Card for 2021.

Here on St Joseph Island, we see deer all the time. They are almost sighted each day we head out for errands. I couldn’t resist creating a shaker card with Joset’s Snow Globe and those deer and trees from the Winter Scenery Set.  

To begin with, I cut out the globe on pattern paper and on craft cardstock and than traced it out on acetate so I have a full size piece for the front of the globe. I fussy cut out foam tape and taped the back trim of the die to create a shaker card. I placed glitter on the inside of the shaker.

I cut four of the trees from the Winter Scenery Die Set and cut thin strips of foam tape to adhere to the back of the trees to add some dimension to the globe. I adhered the deer from the Snow Globe Sidekick Set to the front. I just love how this looks, it creates an awesome winter scene in that globe doesn’t it? 

Die cutting out 6 large and 6 medium florals along with 6 leaves I colored and shaped them (if you are a member of the Elizabeth Crafts family Group on Facebook, I did a Live on Friday, Dec 17th and you can see just how I shaped and created those gorgeous florals here: Live Facebook with Karan. If you are not a member, be sure to become one so you can view the replay)

So getting back to my card, I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment from the Classic Christmas Sentiments set using White Embossing Powder and attached that to the bottom of the card. 

My final step was to add snow paste and I thought some Art Stones would be a nice touch and look like snow balls around the florals. 

Thank you for following me along this year with my craft shares for Elizabeth Craft Designs. Have yourself a Merry Christmas and I am praying that 2022 will see us all back to normal. Blessings for a bright, prosperous and Healthy 2022!

Yes it was snowing when I took this photo, so fitting for the style of my card Happy Scrapping and I hope to be sharing more with you in 2022!

Aloha Shaker Card

June 16, 2020

Hi there,

it’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create this shaker card:

Step 1: Die Cutting

  • cut out three flowers and their add-ons – two from pink and yellow cardstock and one from a stitched panel cut from white cardstock – use the Stitched Rectangles and the Tropical Florals die sets
  • add some acetate behind the open flower window on the card panel with clear double-sided adhesive

Step 2: Adding Color

  • use Distress Ink (Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick) and a Blending Brush to add color to the die-cuts
  • add some splatters with watered-down Distress Ink too – Fossilized Amber to the flower stems and Peacock Feathers to the card panel

Step 3: Stamping the Sentiment and Assembly

  • stamp the sentiment from the Beach Sentiments set with Distress Oxide Ink (Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers) for an ombre look
  • create a shaker element behind the flower opening with double-sided foam adhesive and fill it with pink sequins
  • add a strip of pink cardstock and a strip of black and white patterned paper to the left side of the panel before adhering it to a cardbase

I hope you got inspired.

Happy 4th of July Shaker Card

June 21, 2018

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s Frances Byrne here and it’s my turn to share a tutorial with you all today. With the 4th of July being less than 2 weeks away, I thought I would create a shaker card to celebrate the occasion. 

Of course, living in Australia I don’t actually celebrate the holiday, but I had fun playing with a number of the new die sets which included the 4th of July & Frame It/Stitched Rectangle die sets.

Hello Elizabeth Craft Designs fans!  Birgit back with you with my last post for Elizabeth Craft Designs.  It’s been such a fun year working with the Elizabeth Craft Designs Design Team and I wanted to send a special thanks to Els and Joep, Joset and Frances for letting me be part of this amazing team for a whole year.  Life has just gotten crazy busy for me and it’s taking me down a different path, one that doesn’t allow as much time in my craft room as needed, so here I am with a final project.  I’ll miss you all!
