I Need to Quit! - Rubbernecker Stamps

Welcome back!  I'm sharing with you a fun shaker to send to anyone just because!  With a red, white and blue color scheme it's perfect for summertime giving!

I started by die cutting the shaker cover using the Nested Scallop with Half Holes largest rectangle and the Star Bursts/Fireworks dies together by taping the fireworks in place where I wanted them and running them through my Gemini.  Then I flipped it over and added a piece of acetate over the cutout fireworks and then foam tape around the entire panel.  I used the foam tape to block off the area where the sequins would go so they wouldn't just fall to the bottom of the shaker and then some additional foam tape for support on the rest of the shaker.

I eyeballed where the sequins would go and placed them onto my blue base and popped the top over them!

I cut the margarita glass and contents from Copic friendly paper and colored the pieces before gluing them together.

I colored my margarita slush in a red, white and blue and then added some sparkles using red and blue gel pen and just dotted it on and then some Wink of Stella for the white center.  I colored the straw in stripes and added gel to that also.  I popped the glass up onto my base.

Finally, I stamped my sentiment onto some white cardstock using Serene Color Burst Ink and then centered it with a banner die and cut it out and added it to the card.

Finally a few more sequins as if they escaped from my shaker and I was done!  I'd drink that drink!  

Thanks so much for stopping by today and hope you come again soon!
