Birthday Shaker

Hello again!! It’s time for a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Recycle It

We are showcasing Impression Obsession Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $25 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

I’m actually recycling two parts of this card. The rainbow is a panel I ink blended and never did anything with so it ended up in my “unfinished projects” bin as well as the white panel that I die cut with the Fab Floral Pinpoint Plate and decided to go a different route. Well, both are perfect for this exact challenge!! I had LOTS to choose from. My “unfinished projects” bin is overflowing. I need to do this challenge more often. I forgot to take a picture of both before I cut them up for this challenge, but here are the two I’m recycling.

I used a Nested Circles die to cut out the window of my shaker. I used the ink blended panel to cut out the Small Candle die from Impression Obsession several times and then I ink blended a piece of scrap card stock with Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade distress oxide inks for the flames.

I die cut the Big Wishes sentiment out of Glossy Black Card Stock for the top layer and Black Card Stock for the bottom two layers.

I glued a piece of Clear Acetate on the back of the card front and framed the shaker window with Foam Strips and then covered the rest of the panel with Foam Tape. Then I added my shaker bits. I used several different bits from my stash including Assorted Moonshine, Shaker Garnish and Crystals by Little Things By Lucy’s Cards.

I used a side folding card base as my backing and added a few sequins to the front. I went over the flames on each candle with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen and then some Crystal Glaze to make them nice and shiny.

This card was SUPER easy to make since I had most of the components already made!!

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!
