Today I’m sharing a card I made using the new release. At the bottom of this post there’s also some details about a big Spring Cleaning sale happening at the Ellen Hutson shop!
The first thing I did is create the shaker with one of the instax photo frame dies. I cut one piece from Kraft cardstock and the other from some double sided foam sheets. I find this is the easiest way to create a shaker.
Next I cut two rectangles that were the same size as the outside of the instax die. One from clear plastic and one from white cardstock. I adhered the clear plastic to the back of the Kraft cardstock using some liquid adhesive. Then I adhered the foam sheet to the white cardstock.
I filled the foam sheet side with gold star sequins and some brown sequins. Then I sealed it with the Kraft cardstock I cut out earlier. I like to make my shakers first and then adhere them to the front of the card.
I stamped the hand holding a cup of coffee on some 110lb Neenah Solar White cardstock and then I used my watercolors to carefully paint the hand and coffee. If you don’t have brown watercolor, you can mix red, blue and orange watercolors to achieve a coffee-like color.
I adhered the hand to the clear plastic of the shaker I created. I used that same brown watercolor to paint a coffee cup stain on my card base. Then I added the shaker over it. I die cut the banner that comes with the Instant Photo Frames dies and stamped a sentiment from the Everyday Punnies stamp set.
