Hello everyone. I’m back to share more of Queen & Company‘s new Winter Wonderland Shaker kit. 🙂 You can see my previous post/samples here. I had a lot of fun with this kit. There are just so many variations! All of my samples are cards but the shakers would be so cute on scrapbook pages and gift tags as well!
As mentioned previously: The kit includes 30 steel dies, 6×6 patterned paper pad, 3×4 clear stamps, eight exclusive shaker toppings and nine foam/acetate shakers. As a holiday bonus, outline dies are included in this kit as well ($8.95 value).
Also available: A coordinating Winter Wonderland Solid paper pad, topping refills, and soon to be available foam and acetate refills. There are also Holiday Sprinkles 1 and Holiday Sprinkles 2 on sale.
On this card I die-cut packages from the patterned paper. Using the same “gift box” die, I varied the height creating the appearance of different sizes.
Inside, I placed shiny toppings from the kit as well as a sprinkling of clear diamonds. Once assembed, I adhered over a flag shape from Foundations 2, then layered atop the other pieces. As a finishing touch, I added white accent dots to the red patterned paper using a Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen.
Here I used the super sweet ballerina in the round globe/shaker. I love that there’s a die for her tiny dress and teensy slippers. I die-cut a piece of vellum as the back of the shaker. The snowflakes still show through, they’re just a little more subtle.
Inside, I used pearls and tiny snowflakes from the kit. Before securing the acetate over the shaker, I used Sheer Glue to adhere several of the tiny snowflakes within the globe so that when the card is standing, the snowflakes are still “suspended.” The assembled globe was then adhered over a scalloped panel and stitched strip die-cut using Foundations 4.
Lastly, I created a non-shaker card using the sleigh dies. I first die-cut the sleigh from the leftover foam from the center of one of the globes. I then adhered a red die-cut sleigh over the foam, adding gold dots along the edge using a gold Zig paint marker. (A gold Sharpie would work just as well.) After die-cutting the rails, I colored over that piece with the gold marker as well, then adhered.
I placed the sleigh atop a scalloped rectangle from Foundations 2, tucking in a scattering of small die-cut gifts. The sentiment was stamped onto a flag strip, then cropped, placing the sentiment portion over foam tape.

Thanks so much for visiting today. 🙂
