Hello everyone! I have a super fun and very “Springy” post to share today. Queen & Company has a new shaker kit, and it is perfect for creating cheery cards to wash away all the drabiness of winter.
The new Garden Party Shaker Kit includes 36 steel dies, a lovely 6×6 patterned paper pad, a coordinating 4×6 clear stamp set, 21 foam/acetate shakers and 12 shaker toppings. It’s sooo cute and so much fun!
How cute is that wagon??? I used the coordinating Garden Party Outline Die to die-cut the base outline shape of the wagon. The outline dies are not required; they just make it easier to cut the base for the inside of the shaker. Sometimes I simply trace the base die shape and then trim to fit. (Clear as mud?)
Behind the wheels and a couple of the flowers, I used foam squares cut from the negative leftover foam pieces. I also placed a gold Petite Posie in the center of each flower.
Next, I created a watering can and flowers, layering atop a scalloped die from Foundations Dies #2.
I also created a cute window box full of tulips. Check out the dirt shaker toppings. *Love*
I again placed some foam pieces behind a few of the tulips and stitched a heart button onto the die-cut hand trowel.
You can find all things Garden Party (kit, refills, etc.) in the Queen & Company shop HERE. Note that also available is Garden Party Solids, a paper pad of 24 double-sided sheets of solid paper, perfectly coordinating with Garden Party patterned paper. As an additional note, I highly recommend Sheer Glue for adhering paper and embellishments over acetate. Of my handful of adhesives, I find that it works best. Just my opinion. 🙂
I’ll be back soon with three more fun cards using this kit!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
