Our Daily Bread designs February New Release Blog Hop!

Hi everyone!!! Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs February New Release Blog Hop!!! The team is very excited about the new sets and we are sure you will be too! Check out the New Release post HERE to see the new sets plus some older set combination ideas as well!


For my sample today, I wanted to do something a bit different, so I created a shaker card. Since the theme this month is all about the sea, I chose Spellbinders Big Scalloped Ovals for my shaker to match the scallops on the seashell designer paper.

To create a shaker, you will need either a sheet of clear acetate, or you could recycle any clear plastic packaging. I am using one of the plastic sheets from an ODBD stamp package, since I store my sets in clear DVD cases. I taped the die to the plastic sheet and ran through the Grand Calibur to cut the shaped window.



To create the top frame of the shaker, the same sized die was used with teal cardstock, then the next smallest die was lined up on top of the cut piece, taped in place, and ran through the Grand Calibur.


The white oval you see will be the bottom of the shaker, on which a scripture will be stamped. All three of these pieces are the same size, cut with the same die.



If you choose to stamp your bottom piece, do it now, before you add the foam tape. I used a scripture stamp from one of the new ODBD sets, "The Sea", then sprayed it several times with "Pearl" Glimmer Mist. I then cut tiny pieces of foam tape to line around the outside edge of the bottom piece, two layers high (so that the beads will be able to move). **Trial and error tip#1: Next time I would use a smaller die on the inside to cut the opening so that my foam tape doesn't have to be cut so small. **Trial and error tip#2: if you would like to make a shaker for yourself, I would suggest making a square frame (or a more plain shape) so that the foam tape will be easier to handle....much less work!


Before you fill your shaker, I would suggest adhering it to your project first so that it is stable. I used Scor-tape on the back and adhered it to my card. I glued the pearls inside, rather than using the adhesive dots which are already on the back of the pearls....in case there was any residue, I didn't want the beads to stick to the pearls!



Next, I filled the shaker with blue, green, and white beads. I then peeled off the paper from the foam tape strips.



The clear plastic oval was carefully lined up and pressed onto the foam tape adhesive strips.



On the back of the "frame", I cut little pieces of Scor-tape to make sure that the frame would stay adhered to the plastic shaker cover.



Here is the finished card! Hope you try one for yourself! There are so many variations......you can use Flower Soft, dew drops, bird seed, sand, or anything you like on the inside.

Karen said...

Fantastic shaker card! Love the rope frame for additional authenticity of the sea. It actually looks like you have mini Monkey's Fist knot on it. Thank you for sharing your artistic talents.

Rosella said...

What a great card! Love all the unique details you have included.

Janice said...

Oh, I love it! The color combo is beautiful and the shaker is just too cute. And the robe frame is the perfect finishing touch. Absolutely beautiful card.

Sabrina said...

I love shaker cards - this one is fabulous. Those blue beads really do carry the sea theme, and the paper is great - this reminds me of a visit to Cornwall and all the marine-themed stuff in the gift shops there.
Laughing at your trial and error tips, I think I've learned both those! I think some people use a silicone glue to create odd-shaped frames, but I hate the stuff. I've had success with cutting two layers from fun foam using dies, and sticking them together - easier than tape!

Donna D said...

Wow! Thanks for including the step by step directions for creating the shaker. Love your card.

Patricia Huber said...

Thank you for the instructions on the shaker card. You put a lot of work into cutting out all those little pieces of tape! lol I absolutely love all of the different things you have on this card...the little knots, the scalloped edge, as well as the fabulous shaker!

Irene said...

Love the shaker, but I can see why you suggest using a simpler design. What patience. thanks for your inspiration.

Kelly Sas said...
