Pool Time Shaker Card

Jeg har visst fått en forkjærlighet for Simply Betty stempler i det siste, men de er jo bare helt skjønne ~ og denne karen er perfekt for et sommerlig kort! Det er flere år siden sist jeg har lagd et shaker kort, og måtte lete lengelenge for å finne noe å putte oppi ~ tilslutt tok jeg et smykke jeg vet jeg ikke kommer til å bruke, og vips shaker-kort! :)

I seem to do alot of Simply Betty Stamps cards lately, but who could blame me.. they are so frickin' CUTE! ♥ ♥ ♥ I really enjoyed coloring up this sweet summer boy :)

EDIT: I am the top Tipper! :)


My Top Tip: Re-use old jewellery, or buy cheap when on sale, necklaces and earrings etc. and use them in your crafting! I didn't find any sequins or shaker pearls to fit my card colors today, so instead I gave an unused necklace a new life! I even re-used the clear plastic off a Spellbinder packaging, it was a bit thick so it was hard to get through the embossing in my Big Shot, so look for thinner plastic for shaker-windows if u plan to emboss! 
Instead of throwing out in the trash those empty plastic casings, save them ~ it's even great to store ez-mounted stamps on clear plastic! No need to shop for all of your crafting supplies ;)
