Whimsy Stamps May 2018 Release - Day 5

Saturday, May 5, 2018

Happy Saturday friends. I hope you are having a great day so far. I'm back today with a fun shaker card using some more new products from the latest release over at Whimsy Stamps.

I started by die cutting some woodgrain card stock with the two largest dies from the new Card Builder Windows die set taped together to form a frame. I love the stitching details these dies add. And the woodgrain card stock adds such nice texture.

I also ran these dies through my Big Shot 5 more times with plain white card stock so I could build up my frame without having to use foam tape.

I pulled out the new Beaded Curtain stencil and blended on some Spun Sugar Distress Ink over top of it onto the smaller inside panel.  

I then reached for the older but still favorite Flight of the Butterflies stamp set and used the VersaFine Clair Pinecone ink pad to stamp both the butterflies and the sentiment. You guys, this ink is absolutely amazing. This was my first time using it and I am in love. The coverage is amazing. I did have to stamp my image a few times since I was stamping over the texture of the woodgrain card stock but again, I am in love!

I added some acetate and flat sequins and my shaker card is complete. Thanks for dropping by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

This is lovely, Alanna. I really like the texture of the woodgrain and how you used it to frame the shaker. The flat sequins are fun and I sure love me some butterflies. So glad the ink works well for you! Happy weekend! Hugs!
