Today I am sharing a magical rain shaker card with the adorable “Puddle Play” stamp set by Hello Bluebird.
First, I stamped out all of my images and cut them out using my Brother Scan’n’Cut. Then I colored them using Arteza and Zig Markers.
Then, I used Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink to ink blend the background. I splattered Lawn Fawn’s Liquid Pixie Dust onto it to add some sparkle. I die cut a hill and cloud border using the Grassy Knoll die. I ink blended the clouds with Faded Jeans and the hill with Bundled Sage Distress Ink.
I added pencil marks to the top and bottom of the panel – 0.25″ apart. I added a strip of foam 2mm foam tape to the top and bottom of the panel and pressed each individual string that held the beads into the adhesive. I repeated this process for every pencil mark I had made. Then I added a second strip of foam tape to seal the strings in and cut off the excess strings on the top and bottom. I added little strips of foam tape to the sides of the panel as support for the clouds and hills. Then, I used some anti-static powder tool and ran it along the top on bottom side of the foam tape (where the beads may touch it) so that nothing will stick to it.
Here you can see some pictures of what the mechanism should look like:
I added both the clouds and the hill to the panel. Then I realised that I had forgotten to stamp my sentiment. I added the panel into my stamp platform and as best I could stamped it onto the cloud using Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink. Then, I added my images to the card and adhered everything to an A2 sized card base.
Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
