S2G Birthday Bash Continues...Shaker Style!

Happy Thursday Everyone! One more day til TGIF! Did you ALL enjoy the wonderful Birthday Bash Blog Hop???!!! Well I have to say that I certainly did. What awesome work from the S2G DT's!

We're celebrating the WHOLE month of February for S2G's 1 year birthday! It's been soooo much fun so far. Are you ready for another fun Birthday Challenge??? This week we're challenging you a bit different. We've got a TWIST and that is to use CONFETTI and we would love for you to use that confetti in a SHAKER CARD! I will be honest, I was hesitant at first since I've never made one and have always admired those that did. They look so fabulous and fun but really hard to make. Well I'm  here to tell you that it really wasn't that scary to make. LOL! Took me just a few minutes longer once I figured out what I wanted to make which for me is the longest part! LOL!

Here is my shaker card. I used a new Birthday Image called Party Favor and Border. Love this set since you can use it for soooooo many things. I picked the Princess Crown. One of our DT members LOVES her Tiara's (LOL!) so I made this just for her! She's not been feeling well lately and thought this may cheer her up a bit! I used some of the new yummy DP digi paper from S2G and bordered that with my MS loop border punch. I just love this punch! Then I added some pink organza ribbon for that girly look! My shaker part was made using the flower nestability. I cut the frame out using 2 of the sizes and then used the larger one to cut out my acetate for the front. Then I cut some foam mounting tape to go all around the edge of the flower. I set that aside and started working on my image. I colored the crown with copics and popped up the diamonds, the heart and added rhinestones. I used the flower nestability to cut out my image so that it would fit perfectly with the frame. Then I added my glitter (was supposed to be confetti so we'll just pretend that it's confetti-LOL) and placed very carefully the image onto the foam tape! VIOLA! A shaker card. OMG I was so excited once I got this finished. I was dancing around shouting "I DID IT" "I DID IT"! ROFL! My dog and DH thought I had lost my mind! What do you think? I really like how it came out! You can find the tutorial on how to make the shaker card over on the S2G Challenge blog! You can do!

Deb - this is FABULOUS! Love the colors - the image - the rhinestones - the border bunch... well everything! Especially the shaker part! THANKS FOR SHARING

Ann said...

Nope, you didn't lose your mind! This is adorable-I think Olivia and Jenn will have to duke it out for this one. Olivia may only weigh 8 pounds, but she's a force to be reckoned with when it comes to this princess thing!

Jeannie said...

Really like this Debbie, probably because it is so girly! That ribbon is gorgeous!

Peace & Luv,

Cat said...

Fabulous card, Deb! I love the borders and ribbon! The rhinestones are just the right blingy touch!

rather confusing sites lately, this cleared up some confusion I had.
