Dazzling Butterflies - Miss Ink Stamps

Don't you just love shaker cards??  I do and once you've made one you realize how easy they are (as long as you remember to put the acetate behind your window BEFORE you put the popup tape on (I may or may not have done this several times).

I knew I wanted a natural palette for this one so I started with a kraft base.  For my next layer I diecut the rectangle pattern; ink blended with Peeled Paint distress ink and then used Mowed Lawn through the Leafy Green stencil.  I wanted the stenciling and background to vary in depth and color so I was lighter in some areas than others.

Next I die cut my smaller rectangle panel, lining it up with the heart die inside and taping it so they would stay in place and my window would be where I wanted it.  The acetate was attached behind my window and I added popup tape to the entire panel but specifically around the heart to keep my bits and pieces contained to just the window.

I cut a smaller panel from the kraft and stamped the Have Heart image onto it with Versamark and embossed using Altenew Rose Gold for the wood slice lines.  I attached that piece to the stenciled layer, arranged my Dazzling Butterflies, some clear sequins and some beads in the center the stamped heart and then popped my window panel over the top.

Next I added my images from Springtime Banners and moved them around until I was happy with the layout.  Then I attached them with varying thicknesses of foam tape.

I stamped a simple sentiment from the Everyday Sentiments set (LOVE the wide variety of sentiments on this set!) onto a kraft piece of paper in Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I just popped it up at the bottom and added a few sequins and I was done!

(Check out that color shift in those Dazzling Butterflies!)


And there you have it!  It's been extra warm here in the Desert Southwest and I've been feeling Springy lately... can you tell?

Thanks so much for stopping and hope you'll come back again soon!

This shaker card is beautiful, I love the combination of the kraft cardboard and the green background you've made and that stamp is adorable. Hugs, María.

I am particularly fond of shaker cards and I love this one! Love the colors against the kraft and the green background frame sets off the image.
