Sweet Sunday......Somebunny Shaker


Happy Sunday Peeps!!!

We have some exciting news to share this week!

We are all thrilled to have anew home and a place dedicated to just our sketch challenge.
We are all pitching in on this so Karen is not so overwhelmed with running the challenge.

There are some new design team members, you will be excited when you see who! 

This week with all the the changes going on we decided to go freestyle, you can pick from any of the past sketches for your card this week. You can see them all HERE.


I decided to go back into the files and picked sketch 176


Well at least my version of it anyway!! This is a sketch I designed way back when so I thought it was alright to change it up just a bit!! LOL!!!

I decided to jump on board with the shaker card craze going on and make one


I used the MFT stamp set called Somebunny. This card was a real booger to put together, I had never made a shaker card before so it was an experience,  I need to work on my technique for making these but it turned out cute and that is all that matters right?

I picked up some fun sequins and stars to add to the shaker from work.
The image was stamped with black Memento ink and colored with my copic markers.
I cut my own banner myself since I don't have any dies like this, they are on my list to get tho. LOL!
 Under the banner is an acetate circle and two layers of fun foam that run the whole length of the banner. I cut circles in the banner with my circle dies. I glued this stack all together and added the colored image behind it all, first putting the shaker bits inside.
The DSP is some SU, can't remember name of the pack, the color is Strawberry Slush. I love that color!
I stamped the sentiment onto some white and curled it a bit and snipped the end.
I added it just under the circle and finished it with a button and some white bakers twine.
I added two white brads at the top that I cut off the back prongs and glued on using some crystal effects.
 OK that is all from me, head over to the new
and see all the design team cards.
Pick a sketch and link it up over there!
I am so excited about the new blog and our new designer team members

Thanks for stopping by today!

Vicki
