Merry Merry Week - Day 1

September 24, 2018

Hi everyone, this is Nicky with you today sharing an 'infinity' shaker card I made using 'Merry Merry' which is a stamp set from the most recent release.


I took a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiments in white then ink blended in Spun Sugar and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks.   I applied a few sequins and other glittering embellishments with glue and once dry  I slid this panel into a stamp storage pocket, easing it down all the way to the very end.  I then put together a blend of sequins, stars, micro beads .. you name it and poured those into the pocket making sure that they only go on top of the decorative panel and not behind.  Once satisfied with the blend and the quantity I firmly wrapped the rest of the storage pocket around the back of the panel and stuck it down really well and then stuck the whole thing to a sturdy card base of 110lb cardstock which such a weighty card needs.

I'm in love with this moose from 'Polar Peekaboo Pals' and so I stamped it onto more Bristol Smooth using Ranger Archival Ink in Potting Soil.   I die cut the image and I watercolour painted it using Kuretake Zigs and highlighted a few points with a Uniball Signo White gel pen and stuck it onto the lower right of the front panel.

Such a fun and interactive card style for any time of the year.  I hope you like it!

I will see you again soon, thanks for stopping by to read today.
