Rainbows, Hearts and Love – Shaker Cards

Rainbows, Hearts and Love – Shaker Cards

.
Jennifer Snyder here with some cards full of love.  The two cards don’t match in style but the theme is the same…hearts, love, and Creative Embellishments fabulously fun shakers.
My cards featured today were created using the following chipboard shaker designs from Creative Embellishments:

    

The first card uses the versatile Heart Shaker Set simply painted white.  I try to keep the shaker sets less complex so the shaker becomes the star and not the technique used on the chipboard. 
 
In this angled view, you can also see I have painted the inside edges of the chipboard as well.  I like to do this to create a clean look.  

 

How to fill your shaker card? 

Shakers are so much fun to create and filling them is every bit as fun.  You can use sequins, buttons, beads, smaller pieces of chipboard,  glitter, or whatever you find.  I am not a big fan of glitter because it tends to react to static inside the card once it is sealed.  
 
This particular shaker is filled with shaker mix from Buttons Galore and More: Buttons Galore -Sprinkletz Candy Hearts.  These are sweet polymer clay hearts that look a lot like those favorite candy hearts.

They are easy to use and tend not to react to static inside the shaker as much as glitter and sequins.
In addition to the bold bright shaker mix, the paper is equally bold and cheerful.

This is the second card – very different with a romantic vibe.
in it’s natural kraft chipboard state.  No treatments needed to be done to the chipboard because it matches well with the paper.
Here is the side view.  The LOVE design is such a smart and beautiful design.
The shaker mix on this card is also from Buttons Galore and More/28 Lilac Lane.
It’s a rich gold blend of traditional round sequins, fun stars and hearts shaped sequins and a coordinating collection of beads.

Thanks for stopping here.  Check out all the shaker designs by Creative Embellishments here.
