Did you see my video tutorial on making Shaker Cards from your die-cut rubber scraps? Here is another example–this isn’t the easiest stamp set for this technique though…I’d recommend starting your Shaker Card with a more rounded image, like the Sock Monkey in my video tutorial.And if you want to see the step-by-step tutorial, here are the photos of my project as I was working on it…
Start with the stamped image (the tree), the rubber from the die-cut stamp set, the card and the backing from the tree stamp (if you still have it).
Trace the tree backing paper onto the layer that will cover the ‘guts’ guts of your shaker card. Cut out the shape, leaving about 1/8″ edge between the line and where you cut–you don’t want the hole to be too big or else the ‘guts’ of the shaker box will show.
Carefully use your Craft & Rubber scissors to trim the rubber so that it will fit under the ‘pretty’ top layer of your card.Peel off the rubber from the foam and press the foam down around the stamped tree. Add some microbeads or glitter to the tree.
Peel off the paper layer and lay down a piece of Cello Bag to hold the beads in place. If there are any areas where the foam is narrow, consider using Crystal Effects to be sure the foam is sealed to the cardstock and the cello bag… you don’t want your microbeads to leak out!
Then just assemble with the top layers and admire
Have you ever stamped on ceramic tiles with Craft Stampin’ Pads? I LOVE this project!
This evening was my Ceramic Sensations Tile Class, where everyone made a set of 4 tile coasters and a matching muslin basket liner. Everyone got the Seasons of Friendship stamp set (from the Holiday Mini Catalog) and it’s the perfect set for this project.
Each tumbled marble tile features a different season and uses the Craft Inks to match:
These are the tiles that Patty P. did at the class–she had the great idea of including both the season AND the cool words from the Season of Friendship stamp set… “The season of friendship lasts forever.” Love that!
After you stamp with Craft Ink, I like to seal my tiles with a clear acrylic spray. Use 3-4 very light coats so that the ink doesn’t run. The tiles still work as coasters since the spray doesn’t cover the cracks and crevices in the surface.
Ever drool over those beautiful ceramic season tiles in my stamping room?
