Hello Sunshine Collaboration – Day 1

I’m thrilled to be starting a three day collaboration series with Scrapbook.com featuring products from Catherine Pooler Designs. Most of the products are from the new Hello Sunshine release from Catherine along with a couple of previously released favorite products. I’ll include a supply list below my signature to all the supplies each day during this collaboration series.

For today’s card, I decided to create a festive shaker card. I started by creating a piece of DIY patterned paper. Using one of the circle stamps from the Punctuated Party Stamp Set, I did some repeat stamping on a piece of white cardstock using Catherine’s inks in Be Mine, It’s a Boy, Melon Ice, and Mint to Be. For all of the inks except Mint to Be, I stamped off once before stamping on my panel to keep things more subtle. The Mint to Be is a soft enough color, stamping off wasn’t necessary with it.

Next, I moved on to creating the sentiment for my card. I wanted to create a soft rainbow effect to coordinate with my DIY patterned paper, so I did some very soft ink blending using the same ink colors and the Life Changing Blender Brushes. Even though I only used the four ink colors, it actually looks like seven colors due to the new colors created where the inks blended together in the overlap areas.

Once I had the ink blending done, I used the Celebrate Word Die to cut out the sentiment. I went over the entire word with clear Wink of Stella then added a coat of Glossy Accents to give it some shine and dimension. I then set it aside to dry. I used the word die to cut out three more of the word from white card stock. I adhered them all together stacking them one on top of the other. Once the Glossy Accents was dry on the rainbow word, I then adhered it to the top of the stack.

To create the shaker, I cut a circle into my DIY patterned paper using a 3″ circle die from the Scrapbook.com Nested Circles Decorative Die Set. I adhered a piece of acetate behind the opening using doubled-sided adhesive then added a double layer of foam tape around the opening and the rest of the panel.

I filled the opening with a generous amount of sequins from the new Charleston Sequin Mix from Catherine. I removed the backing paper from all the foam tape then adhered a top-folding card base to the panel. I adhered the stacked rainbow word die centered over the shaker window and that completed the card.
