It’s the weekend!! YAY! I have had a crazy month (or two) and I am soooo tired! I have a report to finish up but I decided I needed to take a fun break just to keep myself sane! Today I am playing with a new stamp set that SNSS just released. This set is called Give Praise. I can’t wait to do a Bible journal page with this, but for today, I decided to try a shaker card idea from Jennifer Mcguire.


It turned out pretty good, though I am going to need some more practice to get the shaker a little more shaker-y….


I used some scrap paper and inked up a bunch of the stamp elements then colored them up with with my Copics. I ran the base background through my Cuttlebug with some embossing dies. Then with Circle dies, I created a frame. With Distress Ink, I dropped some color onto some watercolor paper and ran that though my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder. I cut out the elements for the shaker pieces and added sequins.

Now I am sitting here just shaking it for fun. See, my break was truly successful!

Have a great one and thanks for stopping by!
