In all the years I've been card-making (about 17, now), I have never made a shaker card.  So, this week's Just Add Ink challenge, set by Paula, really pushed me out of my comfort zone!

After watching a couple of You Tube videos, I plucked up the courage to give it a go, and here's what I came up with:

It's a bit hard to see in this photo, but I sprinkled some glitter in with the little punched-out stars, to soften the look a little.  (You can see that better in the top pic.)

Stamps: Something for Baby, Itty Bitty Banners, Dictionary
Card: Pistachio Pudding, Hello Honey, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White
DSP: Lullaby Designer Series Paper
Ink: Baked Brown Sugar, Hello Honey, Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake and Whisper White stampin' pads
Other: Baby's First framelits, Window Sheet, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Basic Rhinestones (coloured with Coastal Cabana Blendabilities), Itty Bitty Accents punch, Bitty Banners framelits, Hello Honey stitched satin ribbon, sponge daubers, foam tape (not SU!), Dazzling Diamonds glitter
Make sure you check out the fabulous creations of the rest of the Design Team.  We hope you'll play along with us at Just Add Ink this week; we LOVE seeing what you make!


  1. See, we always keep learning, right? This is a beautiful card, Christine, really gorgous with the sparkle, stars and rhinestones! Love that you used the buggy framelit to create your shaker space - such a cute idea!

  2. Don't know why you waited so long! The card looks great, the colours are soft and subtle and I love that you used the debossed side of your embossed square. Love the stars and glitter - so pretty.

  3. I absolutely love your idea of a baby carriage shaker Christine - what a wonderful idea for a first!!!shaker. Love that you filled it with stars too :) xxx

  4. YAY it was your first time too! You did such a fab job and I really like the baby carriage - super cute.
