How To Guide - Step 1

Place the die plate, from the Blossom Bouquet Stamp And Die Collection, on to ONE of the pieces of

7 x 5" white card, and run it through your die cutting machine. Keep the "waste" white card to assist you with the next step.  

How To Guide - Step 2

Place the die cut element back in the "waste" card, and secure in your Eureka with the magnet. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Ink up the stamp, from the same set, with the Onyx Black Versafine. 

Stamp in place on to your die cut element, as shown here. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Use your watercolour paints to paint your stamped image. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Once the ink is dry place a circle mask, or cut one out from a piece of copier paper, over the circle in the centre of your artwork. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Splatter the white Confetti paint over your artwork, as required. I like lots of splats!!

Remove the circle mask and dry off the paint. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Ink up the sentiment stamp, from the same set, with the Onyx Black Versafine, and stamp it in the circle panel. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Apply the red liner tape to the back of your painted die cut element, and adhere the acetate in place. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Adhere the shaker or double sided foam tape, around the edges, ensuring there are no gaps in between the tape.

Set this to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Ink up the stamp from the Textured Wall Stamp Collection, with the Iced Spruce Distress Oxide. 

Spritz with water and stamp on to the second piece of 7 x 5" white card. 

Dry this thoroughly, then trim to 6 1/2 x 4 1/4" (slightly smaller than your die cut element). 

Wipe over the background with an anti static bag. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Lay the painted topper on your craft mat, and remove the backing off the foam tape. 

Wipe the inside of the acetate with your anti static bag, then place your sequins on top of the acetate, being careful not to touch the acetate. Use a pokey tool to spread the sequins out flat, around the acetate.  

How To Guide - Step 12

Carefully place the stamped background over the top, with the stamped image facing down, making sure you press it down firmly, all around the double side tape, so no sequins can escape!

How To Guide - Step 13

You can now turn your artwork over, and give it a good shake, to loosen up all the sequins! 

How To Guide - Step 14

Adhere this on to the black card. 

How To Guide - Step 15

Adhere this on to the front of your top folding, grey card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 16

To finish your shaker card, add sequins where required.
