A Hug in the Shaker…

PrintToday on the My Favorite Things Blog is the Final Day of SHAKER CARDS!! Confetti everywhere this week!! πŸ™‚

Today’s idea was to show the inside of the card…a Peek-a-boo, if you will. I ended up making the inside basically “the card”. It’s funny how things happen. πŸ˜‰hawkins_jill_can't wait shake_wm hawkins_jill_can't wait shake_00_wmThe scalloped circle is actually from the Die-namics LLD Cupcake Stand set and works fabulously as a centerpiece, don’t you think? πŸ™‚ The tricky part on this one was hiding the foam. I didn’t completely excel on that task, but didn’t want to toss it either. Once again, a “handmade” card right? πŸ˜‰

This card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things: Die-namics LLD Cupcake Stand, Die-namics Stitched Circle STAX, Photo Booth, In & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle STAX (dies), BG Diagonal Lines Background, CS True Friends (stamps), Black Licorice (hybrid ink), Steel Grey (dye ink), Bubble Gum, Steel Grey, Ripe Raspberry (card stock). πŸ™‚

Hope you too have enjoyed the shaker fun this week!! There are PRIZES each day! πŸ˜‰

photoSketch Challenge #224 TODAY on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog!! Sure to be rockin’ cards by my teammates! πŸ™‚

Here’s a peek at my card this week: Die-namics Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX. Oh yea! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_sketch224_00_wmI used the Die-namics Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX repeatedly to get that one banner. It came together so well. LOVE that! Go check it and all the other fabulousness from the DT on the MFT Card Challenges blog today!

Here’s the sketch πŸ™‚

MFT_WSC_224Also this week, the MFT Stamps Blog is all about Shakers!!PrintHere’s one for today!hawkins_jill_sending happy_wmI recommend static treating all parts of your shaker card before you put the goodies inside. I did that here, but as you can see, some still sticks wacky. But hey, that’s the nature of the card. They are meant to shake, so a still shot is never quite as enjoyable as a good SHAKE!! Ha!! πŸ˜‰ The MFT Blueprints #24 has sequin die cuts, so that is what I used here. The possibilities are endless to make shaker cards. πŸ™‚

Gonna shake…

PrintToday on the My Favorite Things Blog is Day 2 of SHAKER CARDS!! Whoot! Love me a good shaker! Yesterday’s MFT blog post was fun, and I can’t wait to hop around today.
Here’s my take on a “flat” type shaker card. Right up my alley with my trusty sewing machine. I couldn’t get the Donut idea out of my head, so I just went for it. Sort of a simple card, but that little detail adds a fun touch I think. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_donut know shake_00_wmThis is also a great way to show how the MFT dye inks can do second generation stamping to get a whole different gradient! I only used two gray ink pads. Hooray!
