Thinking of You !

What a day - rain rain rain and still it keeps coming !!!! BUT what a great excuse for being down in my stamp room! I popped down to the States yesterday and visited one of my favourite stamp shops - Stampadoodle and I found these shaker containers by Impression Obsession. What a quick and easy way to make a shaker card. The best bit about them is they, (well the oval ones at least) are Nesty friendly. At the moment they come in a small and large circle, small and large square and the oval. Here I stamped using Justrite from the oval Thinking of You set, and yes you can see they fit nicely in there too. What a find !!
I stamped the image in versafine and clear embossed it so I could colour the image with copics. The white card stock was too stark for the rest of the card so I decided to use the air brush and make it a pale pink background. I framed the oval using nestabilities. I thought it finished it off quite well. When making a shaker box its an idea to fill it with something, I forgot to put my micro beads inside so I had to peel the card stock off very carefully and add them !!!! Oh, I forgot to mention the shaker tops are self adhesive, how cool is that.

I used a border punch, ribbon and rhinestones to finish off the card. The rhinestones were clear so I used one of my copics to give them a hint of pinkness.

Thanks for looking, have a great day!
