DeNami Design Surprise Monster Birthday Shaker Card!

Hi Everyone! Elizabeth here with a fun surprise birthday card! I decided to shake things up a little with this card and have the main scene be in the inside of the card with window that you can get glimpse that there’s something inside.

To create this card I stamped the window on some green pattern cardstock from Lawn Fawns Polka in the Meadow and fussy cut it out and used a knife to cut out the inside. You don’t have to use pattern cardstock for the window. You can also stamp it on colored cardstock or white cardstock and color it in. I chose the fast and easy way of the pattern cardstock. Next, I die cut the yellow pattern cardstock, also from Lawn Fawn, with a stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp. While I had the die out I went ahead and used it on some white cardstock for the inside panel. I stamped the white panel with the Happy Monster Party stamp and Happy Birthday in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink and then colored in the monsters with Copic markers. To line everything up I held up the stamped panel with the yellow panel in front and then the window in front of a good light source so that I could see the monsters. I lined up the opening of the window with the monsters and carefully used some washi tape to hold the window where I wanted it. I used a knife to cut out the opening using the window as guide. Do the same thing with the card base and you are ready for assembly. To create the shaker part used very thin double sided tape and adhered the acetate to the back of the window. Then, I used foam tape to create the well for the sequins and adhered another piece of acetate. I attached the panel on the inside of the card and the yellow panel on the front of the card being careful to line up the openings. Lastly, I added the shaker window to the front of the card. I hope that you enjoyed this card and it inspires you to think outside of the box when it comes to your stamps and cards!

DeNami Design Noah’s Ark Shaker Card

Hi Everyone! Elizabeth here with another fun project for DeNami Designs! Todays project is my absolute favorite kind of project! Shaker Cards! I love making shaker cards! They are so fun and easy to make!

For this shaker card I used a gender neutral plaid from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid 6×6 pack, so that this card can be for someone expecting a boy or girl baby, or even twins. I used a frame die from Taylored Expressions Frame in Frame die set to create the shaker frame and kept the inside piece to use as the background in the shaker, that way I’m not wasting any paper! I stamped Congratulations on the background piece in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. Next, I cut a piece of acetate just slightly smaller than the frame and used a Scor Tape to adhere the acetate to the frame. Then I cut some Scotch foam tape to go around the frame and adhered it the frame making sure that I didn’t leave any gaps in between the foam tape so that the sequins couldn’t escape. I set this aside to work on the ark. I stamped the Noah’s Ark on some white cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. I kept the coloring fairly simple with Copic markers. For the zebra, I used a very light grey and very light blue on top of each other and then went over that with the colorless blender to lighten it some more. This gives the effect of some shadow and the zebra still looks white. For the lion, I colored him in a yellow and then for his mane, I used a darker yellow that has hint of orange and brown, and flicked the color on his mane. Next, I fussy cut the ark out and to give it a finished look, I went around the edges, from the back, with a Memento Tuxedo Black marker. By doing this from the back, if I slipped then the black would be on the back of the ark instead of on the front! I adhered the ark to the frame with Scor Tape and Zots Bling Dots. To make the card, I adhered the background to a top folding A2 card base with Tombow tape runner after carefully lining everything up. Next, I lay out my Doodlebug sequins on the card and spread them out over the background. I like to place the frame over the sequins to get an idea of whether or not I need to add more sequins and if so which color. Once I have the right amount of sequins, I carefully line up the frame with the background and adhere the frame to the card base.

I loved making this card! I hope that it inspires you create some shaker cards! Until next time!

DeNami Design Spring Birthday Shaker Card!

Spring is finally here! Yeah! April showers are here and the flowers are starting to bloom, well if you don’t have deer like I do! Haha! For this weeks project the theme is spring and I have been wanting to do a shaker card for a while now and I thought why not now?! Not only is this card a shaker card but I also did watercolor for the card.

hbd-1609-1

To make my card I created my watercolor panel first. To create watercolor panel I used Distress Ink in three colors, which are listed below in the supplies. Next, I die cut the panel with a frame die from Taylored Expressions that creates a frame and the main panel. I stamped happy birthday in Versafine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. For the flowers and bugs, I used the Flower Patch and Bitty Bugs stamp sets. I used Lawn Fawns Hippo die ink so that it would be soft on the background. Next, attach the acetate to the frame and then attached Scotch foam adhesive around the frame. After that, I attached the back panel to the card base with a Tombow Extreme Tape Runner and then placed my shaker bits  on the back panel. For my shaker bits I used a selection that I had picked up my local Michaels. Last, I placed I attached the shaker window to the card base making sure that everything was lined up perfectly.

Below is a list of supplies that I used along with links where you can purchase them! Enjoy!
