Painted with Love Shaker Card for Freshly Made Sketches

Don't you love killing two birds with one stone? Well, not literally! I mean being able to complete two tasks by doing one! Today was a good example. I have a Catalogue Launch coming up on Saturday, so I've been working on samples from the Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration Brochure for that. I was planning on creating a shaker Valentine card using the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and the new Gold Glitter Flakes. I've also been dying to enter a card challenge and the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week seemed like a good fit. I took a quick look at the sketch:

and designed my card.

The location of the shaker cut out was, in large part, determined by the locations of the gold foil on the paper, trying to keep as much of it as possible. But my memory of the sketch was also skewed by my annoying Left/Right disability. If you tell me to turn left, I really have to concentrate to remember which way that is. Luckily, I grew up playing the piano, because that's how I remember which is which, imagining my hands on the keyboard. Anyone else have this problem besides me?

I didn't stop to think about it this time, and once I'd already cut my shaker opening, I realized that it was on the wrong side for the sketch, but decided to go ahead and enter it any way!

  • Location aside, I really like this design and you can't go wrong with this Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper! It's so rich and luscious with all those broad brush strokes and gold foil that anything you make with it is going to look good!
  • I used the Sweet & Sassy Framelit dies to die cut all the heart shapes in this card, including the shaker card opening, the frame for the shaker opening and the other hearts on the card front.
  • I love the combination of the Calypso Coral, the Blushing Bride and the Gold. So pretty.

  • I took the heart shape that I had die cut from the shaker opening and reversed it to show through the Window Sheet window. I used the Amazing You stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure to stamp the words You are simply.. on it.
  • Foam Adhesive Strips are perfect for forming a barrier around the area where the gold glitter needs to go and are double adhesive sided so that you can stick it to the window sheet and another piece of cardstock behind to lock in the Gold Glitter Flakes.
  • The die cut sentiment is from the Celebrate You Thinlit set from the SAB Brochure as well. It is one of the two Level 2 rewards for spending $120 in one order.

This is a BIG way to earn rewards during Sale-A-Bration! And there are many ways to do it! You could join my Stamp Club. My last host earned $125 in rewards plus a half price item! That extra $35 in Stampin' Rewards from Stampin' Up! during Sale-A-Bration for qualifying orders really makes a huge difference!

You could host your own party by inviting some friends over to have some fun stamping! You earn the rewards from their orders!

You could host a Facebook Party or a Catalogue Party. The ideas are only limited by your imagination! Let's get together and figure out a way for you to take advantage of this great offer in a way that feels right for you!
