10 Shaker Card Hacks You Should Try!
everyone its Justine and welcome to a new video today I'm continuing with my April collaboration this time with crafty not shifty aka Laura and she we are going through some of our favorite

shaker

card

hacks

since we both love

shaker

card

s so I'm starting off with

shaker

pouches now this is the first new

card

that I'm creating in this video and this is going to be using the my favorite things

shaker

pouches they come separately in packs where you can buy these plastic sheets already
10 shaker card hacks you should try
made and they have coordinating dies as well that fit perfectly around them there's all sorts of shapes from clouds stars martini glasses gift

card

holders as well rectangles circles all sorts of things and they come in a variety of depths too so if you ever wanted to do let's say a candy pouch or something that would work too they even have one for lip gloss so I'll link to all those below in the video description or a link to the general page where you can find them all if
you're interested and then went ahead and I cut the largest rectangle from the set this is the set that is supposed to go with the

shaker

pouch itself and I'm saving the middle so that I can die-cut the sentiment from it and this frame now fits perfectly around the plastic I'm going to grab some of this adhesive from scrapbook comm this is 2 inch adhesive and I'm going to put it on the back here and just trim it a bit and the reason why I'm doing that is the sentiment I'm
going to be die-cutting from my favorite things is very very fine and I don't want to have to worry about gluing that with liquid glue because that would be a pain in the butt so I'm going to be die-cutting this birthday sentiment from my favorite things that's also fairly new and I do I cut that with my Gemini junior die-cutting machine and now I can simply just peel it right off my paper and it's got the adhesive already on it so I am going to be putting this just directly on
the front of my

shaker

pouch because why not and you know you can add things on the inside of your inside of the

shaker

pouch on the outside of the

shaker

pouch just want to make sure you want the sequins covering it or the beads covering the sentiment or do not want that and that's going to determine whether you put it on the inside or the outside of the

shaker

pouch now let me tell you this adhesive that I'm using from scrapbook comm is sticky it's crazy sticky and you know it is
really just great I know it's gonna hold on there with no issues whatsoever and it comes in a variety of sizes from four inches to I think one eighth of an inch and I have I think all of them now and I've been using them so much lately and I absolutely adore them they're often on sale as well so I'm gonna link to all the sizes below in the video description now I'm just slowly peeling away the wishes and I'm going to stick it on the front of the

shaker

pouch window and
don't forget the little eyes for the top of the eyes in birthday and wishes because that just really just adds that fine detail so now I'm going to set that off to the side I'm going to create myself a nice colorful background here using some Catherine Pooler dies I'm using my blending brushes here you see how great of an impression I get with the inks how smooth and how I don't get any harsh lines and I've been obsessed with these I have a whole video on them if
you're interested I'll link to that below in the video description also okay I need to stop saying that because that's getting annoying and but anyway any information you have is below and any information you need is below so if you ever are looking for anything it's down there so I'm just going to go ahead and create a nice blend between a bunch of different colors here I think these purp these colors here are perfect for going along with a silver that I have for the
10 shaker card hacks you should try
frame and birthday wishes as well I think the silvers gonna really look nice against that orange and pink color so I have my

card

base ready four and a quarter by five and a half folded it in half of course and then I'm going to put this panel here over top now it's a little bit smaller but it doesn't matter because my frame is going to be covering it anyway I'm now going to go ahead and I'm going to use this beautiful mixture of butterfly sequins from Ellen Hutson it has a
bunch of regular sequins flowers and butterflies and it just so happened that I grabbed this out of my sequin thing because my sequin organizer because all the colors seemed to coordinate perfectly with my background I didn't even plan that how awesome is that and it's perfect it's got those summer colors summer sequins and they're all ready to go so I'm going to add some liquid to the back of this I find this the best to use the liquid adhesive gives you a chance to kind of
shimmy it into place to if need be and I'm going to glue that directly on to the

card

base and then I'm going to add the frame over top now I'm going along with my thumb and just really pushing that down there I don't want any chance of this the glue lifting and some sequins getting under there or anything like that in fact once I add the frame I'm going to take a little bit to move it as well so I'm just going to turn the sound on for a brief portion so that you can hear
the

shaker

actually moving as well as the background to the TV show that I'm touching right now as I catch up on Game of Thrones while filming so that's the end of the first

card

now for the rest I'm going to show you other techniques like this one is foam sheets but I'm actually grabbing footage from older videos so I will link to those below in the video description and for each one of these I'm just going to show a portion of the

shaker

card

that is important so you can
see here I've die-cut this trick or treat' frame I've added some acetate behind it and now I have a piece of foam and this is obviously a very intricate die and I wasn't too sure what to do with it so what you can do actually instead of putting together all sorts of foam tape or using a

shaker

pouch is you can die-cut this using foam and you can see here that I have the super thick piece of foam all ready to go and I actually cut this down because this specific die didn't
actually cut the inside out but of course you're going to want to save this more for dies or it's going to do that so this is perfect for example if you're doing a

shaker

card

where you're cutting out a word you could use the negative part of the foam to have the frame around the word so you don't have to do all those intricate foam tape placement and things like that but are the sort of traditional ways of doing a

card

but this is a great way to have a foam

card

or a frame
around your

card

rather for the

shaker

bits that is really affordable as well as very versatile and you're never going to get that chance of your beads or your sequins or anything like that falling out the next one I have is how do you get multiple colors for example on a

card

so let's move into this beautiful

card

that I created from Ellen hi Ellen Hudson's hand dies and we're gonna use these dies here for my our frames so the first thing I did was I cut out my front panel so I
10 shaker card hacks you should try
have all my die cuts already here lined up all good to go and I had six hands and what I wanted was all sorts of different colors to kind of represent all sorts of different people working together I then went ahead and traced those hands on to my

card

another

card

panel that I was going to be adding the backgrounds to and I have full video tutorials of all of these as well I'm just going through the very basics of it and then went ahead and laid down some color on top of each of the frames
just to give it a little bit of a more colorful background and something that's very vibrant I then went ahead and I actually started to paper piece or two piece pieces of foam tape around each one of the frames being very careful to ensure that I was not going on top of any of my pencil lines where I would end up seeing the tape so you can go ahead and make your own sort of custom frames like this like the way I did but it does take obviously a little bit of work and some patience in order
to get it done and I use some 3m foam tape for this I find it easy to tear easy to work with and easy to take the backings out off and you really want to make sure you're choosing tape that really works well for you and that you don't struggle with it all another thing you want to make sure is that you actually cover all the pieces of the area so none of your

card

stock sags the next thing I'm going to do is I'm going to go ahead and add all of those different seeds and everything
to my

card

s I'm using a variety of jewels from pretty pink posh which are perfect because they make a lot of noise when they shake and they make it just extra fun then I went ahead and peeled off all the backings of all of this and just placed the front back on with all the acetate already on there so remember there is a layer of acetate between the beads and the hands that are die-cut and here's a look at that final

card

here I think this is such a great

card

the next one is unusual
window so just so you know you don't have to use things like a traditional circle or a suggest traditional square or acid traditional rectangle and I realized I probably

should

have put this before the hand video because you just saw this technique in the hand video as well but I did want to show off this

card

because it is my number one ultimate favorite

card

of all time so I went ahead and I die-cut three of these butterflies and they're a beautiful butterfly die from Concord and ninth
and I'm making a number 10

card

which is a bit of a landscape style

card

and a long one i pasted three pieces of patterned paper behind my dies to make that a little bit simpler and I went ahead and I did the same thing as I did on my previous

card

and I went and I traced the butterflies onto the

card

so I knew where they were gonna be and then went ahead and made my frames just like I did in the previous

card

with three different kinds of seeds now don't forget you could do colors you
could do seeds you can do sequins you could do glitter inside these you can do candy or paper confetti whatever you want in that your

shaker

it really doesn't matter the only thing you have to remember is to put acetate behind those butterflies because for some reason I always forget to put the acetate and then I have windows that don't have any glass and the beads just gonna fall out and it's crazy so anyway I put those down and then they acetates there it sits I already put it
on off-screen and it shakes so nicely but what I thought would be cool was adding that die cut back on top and that's what I wanted to show you that was a little bit different than the previous video so I went ahead and I added those butterflies and I only glued the body of them so that the wings popped up this is seriously the best

card

ever I absolutely adore it someone very special got this

card

now for my last technique I wanted to talk about how you can actually step up your

shaker

card

s a little bit and that's embossing on the windows so I am using heat-resistant acetate as well as a Merry Christmas stamp for Mama elephant and I put the acetate inside my Misti now you can see how old this video is I'm using a whole different craft mat and probably in the different countries I'm creating this and I add my stamp here right on top of the acetate and using my magnet to help keep things down and for this

card

here it's so important again heat-resistant acetate
not all acetate can handle heat embossing and you can do this on top of vellum on top of you know acetate whatever you want and then I just peeled this off it obviously was going to come up with the clear thing there and then acetate and then I just stamped it using some Versamark ink onto the panel itself I kept that tissue behind the window because I wanted to be able to see a little bit better what I was doing and I then at color it embossing tape what is super imperative here is that
you're using an embossing bag I didn't own one at the time so it was a little bit messy and so when you cover it it

should

n't be staticky because you've used that embossing pay bag and the static is now gone for me the status the static wasn't gone and I had to use a dry brush in order to get it off just try and use minimal heat on the acetate heat up your heat gun as long as possible before putting it directly to the acetate so it melts quickly embossing powder will melt
quicker on acetate than it will on paper because it heats up more so you don't have to keep it on there long so that's the end of this video as well you can see that in the final product don't forget to check out Laura's video for some more
