Queen and Company - Circle Shaped Shaker Set Revisited

Hello Friends!
I'm back with more cards featuring the Circle Shaped Shaker Set.

For my first card today, I’m sharing a shaker, but for my second card, I’m sharing a little twist on the fun dies included in this set. Here we go!


First up, I wanted to take this beautiful shaker that features all three layers of circles, and really dress it up, so I added swirls of blended ink and heat-embossed sentiments to the base of the card. The pretty sentiments are included in the kit, and I used colors of PTI's Aqua Mist and Distress Oxide Abandoned Coral for the blending. For the shaker I used paper from the Dots pad and Birthday Bash pad.


I added a lot of sparkly bits and bobbles inside and outside the shaker, including pearls, rhinestones, and Diamond Toppings, as well as pretty dots all over the shaker itself. I added a touch of striped ribbon and some flowers to the card for a romantic twist. I used Queen and Company Pom Flowers and Glitter Flowers in Purple.


I also added sweet little Nuvo drops on the acetate shaker and a few leaves using 1Canoe2 Twilight stamps, heat-embossed on vellum. 


For my next card, I pared back the layers, and challenged myself to use the shaker dies in a different way! 


So I came up with a wee rainbow, cut using the circle dies, out of pretty Queen and Co paper patterns - the Flirty FloralsDots, and Stripes paper pads. I matted the card onto some sweet paper from the Dots Paper Pad collection, along with a scalloped edge on both the top and bottom.


I once again pulled out my 1canoe2 Twilight stamp set, and stamped a spray of leaves at the top of the card in pretty Archival Ink colors of Magenta Hue, Tea Rose, Viridian, and Sap Green.


To mimic raindrops, I used a collection of Rhinestones, Pearls, Nuvo Crystal Drops, and Nuvo Jewel Drops in Limoncello, Rose Water,  and Sea Breeze. I love, love, love these sweet translucent dots so much! :) 


I added a sweet Glitter Flower to the rainbow, and a stamped sentiment using the little stamps included in the set with a dash of Buttercup Archival ink.

Is it just me, or isn't it super fun to step outside the box and explore all the different ways to use crafty products? I keep my stash pretty streamlined, so I looove when a die or stamp can do double duty! Which means that this little set is a big hit with me :)

Thanks for joining me, dear friends. Have a great day!

Ivana
