Shake Things Up! CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month we are highlighting Shaker Thin Cuts. This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.  If you are coming from Debi McBain Blog, you are on the right track!

It was so much fun using some new products to create this card. I was disappointed when the thin cuts for this stamp set sold out but it really isn’t hard at all to fussy cut. I will mention that you do not need much “filler” in a shaker card like this where there is a sentiment underneath. I used pieces from the Loose Sequins to embellish my card.

Supply List: Thin Cuts – Shaker Window & Confetti, Shaker Window Foam & Acetate, Wonder of the Season stamp set, Carmine ShinHan Marker, Sap Green ShinHan Marker, Almond Cardstock, Intense Black Ink Pad, Gold Sequin Ribbon, Gold Loose Sequins, Tis the Season Paper Packet, and White Card & Envelopes.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto Michelle Johns’ Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!

    Thanks, the ribbon was very easy to use. My first plan was to use it around the circle and it would have placed well there.

  3. So so pretty! Like Melissa, I have not yet tried using the sequin ribbon. I’m definitely going to have to do that now! This has to be my favourite Christmas set this year. I really like the sentiment being in the circle! Thanks!

  4. Your card is gorgeous! Is the sequin ribbon difficult to work with?

  8. I really like the way you’ve used the sequin ribbon with the sequins inside the shaker card. The sentiment with the Poinsettia is lovely too.

    Thank you. The sequin ribbon is easy to use. My original idea was to put it in a circle around the shaker window.

I would love to hear what you think!
