Today is day two of the Creative Team’s inspiration hops for the new All the Trimmings release coming later this week from Catherine Pooler Designs. Several members of the CT are participating in a video hop today, so be sure to head over to Catherine’s YouTube channel for the start of the hop. Once you watch each video, you’ll find the link for the next stop in the hop in the video description.
I’m not participating in the video hop today because I’ll be up in the blog hop taking place tomorrow. Even though I’m not in the video hop, I still thought I would share a card here on my blog made using products from the new release.
Even though this isn’t technically a Hanukkah card, I was inspired by the beautiful blue and silver color combination I often see on Hanukkah cards. I started by stamping the Flourishes Background Stamp on white cardstock using VersaMark ink then heat embossed it using silver embossing powder. I then used a mini ink blending tool to apply the new Suede Shoes ink over the entire panel. I wanted an ombre look so I layered the ink darker at the bottom of the panel and let it go lighter as I moved toward the top.
I used one of the new Nested Label Dies to cut a window from the panel to create the shaker window. The sentiment is from the previously released Candy Cane Lane stamp set stamped in Suede Shoes ink.
To assemble the card, I adhered a piece of acetate behind the die cut label opening. I adhered double layered foam tape on the back of the panel and enclosing the label opening. I added some blue and silver sequins to the card base along with a few metallic stars then adhered the embossed panel over it and that completed this fun shaker card.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today. If you missed our big Instagram Hop yesterday, there’s still time to participate for a chance to win one of three $25 gift certificates to Catherine’s online store.
