StampFairy Challenge - Shaker Cards

Today's Ramblings: Good morning. Well here we are into May. Hard to believe Summer is on it's way. The days are getting longer, my favorite part is watching the sun rise from my craft room window in the morning, with a cup of coffee, while I am posting on here.

Today's DT Challenge: The new theme at StampFairy Challenge is "Shaker Card". GASP!!!!

If you have never made a shaker card before, you kind Netty's tutorial {here}.

I have been so excited to share with you my very first shaker card. I've had a recycling idea in my head since I first saw the challenge schedule.

I made this shaker card using the lovable Panda Paul {found here}:


I used the packaging material from these gems to get my shaker bubble:

After hours of work and mishaps, I think he turned out quite well!


Card Ingredients:
StampFairy digi; KI Memories and Recollections papers; Recollections cardstock; Copics; Circle Nestie;
Fiskars Threading Water punch; Celebrate It ribbon; Primas; Recollections gems; Dress It Up button; hemp twine; recycled packaging.

I made Panda Paul for the following challenges:


Well I do hope you will swing by and look at the rest of my teamies fabulous shaker card creations - we all did a great job (if I do say so myself!)
