You Amaze Me Shaker Card & Crazy Crafters Blog Hop With Dena Rekow

CCBH w Dena Rekow

Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with our Special Guest stamper Dena Rekow! This month we are excited to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) a project that has been created by Dena.  We hope you find great inspiration from the projects.  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Gail Davidson, or may have come from the person previous to me.  Be sure to click on the person listed under me further down the page to continue your journey on this blog hop.  We are thrilled that Dena said yes to playing along with the Crazy Crafters this month.  Thank you Dena!  I have created a shaker card for the hop today.  I hope you like it.

I chose to CASE this card of Dena’s:

Dena's Card

I love Dena’s cut away card and the use of washi tape underneath.  I chose to do something similar, except I added a shaker element instead of the washi tape.

You Amaze Me Shaker Card-1

I chose Mint Macaron for my card base ‘cos I just love it!  And I paired it with Basic Black for a bold contrast.  I used Metallics Sequin Assortment and also placed a few Mint Macaron enamel dots in the shaker section as well as on the card front.

You Amaze Me Shaker Card-2

The “you” from the Hello You Thinlits was cut in Mint Macaron and adhered to the top of the card front, and the sentiment from Crazy About You Stamp Set was white heat embossed under the shaker panel.

Tip:  If you are using photopolymer stamps, you can bend them into a curved shape to add interest.

I used the brand new Foam Adhesive Strips (coming out in the new catalogue) to adhere the shaker components and the card front to the card base.  It was so easy to apply to the wavy edges of the cardstock.  I think I’ll be making a lot more shaker cards with this fantastic new product!

If you like this colour combination, please feel free to save and share it.  You can find more inspiration on my Pinterest Colour Inspiration Board.
