Shake it shake it shake it!

Today the Impression Obsession designers are sharing shaker cards with you! I used the large circle Shake-It ™ pouch with this beautiful gold embossed snowflake stamp. I love these shaker pouches! They're self adhesive, come in several shapes and sizes, and are oh-so-so-very easy to use!



I added Kaisercraft pearls to the snowflake, then sprinkled some of Barbara Trombley's Vintage Glass Glitter, made from real glass, on the inside of the shaker pouch. Then I carefully aligned the circle design over top of the pouch, and this is the result. This meets the Saturday Secret Crafters challenge this week too...seasons! The "Saturday Surprise" theme is "more than one..."so I used several snowflakes here; the current "Cute Cards" challenge is "Teen Terrors" (I have a thirteen year old young friend who loves all-things-snowflake!).



I used the Let it Snow stamp from this clear stamp set, stamped with Coal Black Versafine Ink and clear embossed with Ranger Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder on a panel cut with Labels Six Nestabilities dies.


Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you'll have time to stop by the other designers' blogs too...they'll give you some fabulous inspiration! The links to their blogs are on my sidebar to the right. And don't forget...YOU too can play in the challenge to win a $25 gift certificate for some FABULOUS IO stamps!

That is so elegant, and I love the idea of shakers all ready to use - takes a lot of work out of the card making.
