Well, the holidays are officially over and it's back to the regular routine this week, but today is special because we have a particularly special stamp set in the latest Waffle Flower Crafts release.
Last fall, Nina reached out to the team and invited us to contribute a design or concept to a stamp set. We sent in our ideas and here's the result: the DT Mix Stamp Set!
My contribution to the set is the "Shake it off" sentiment. I love the song Shake it off by Taylor Swift. It was my favorite earworm of 2014. I thought that it would make a fantastic sentiment for a card because the truth is that we can all use this reminder from time to time...
It also seemed only appropriate that I make a shaker card using the Shake it off sentiment.
On a panel of white card stock, I stamped the plus sign pattern from the Pattern Play stamp set, then I die cut a circle for the shaker window. I covered the circle with acetate and bordered the die cut opening with foam tape. I poured in gold micro beads and backed it with white card stock.
I stamped the Shake it off sentiment on white card stock with Versamark and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. Once cooled, I punched the embossed sentiment from the card stock with a 1.5" circle punch. I added a few gold accents in the form of some enamel dots and a wood veneer arrow. I matted the panel with black card stock and adhered it to a white card stock base.
Here's the Shake it off card, shaken up. The micro-beads make for a fun shaker element and are rhythmic too!
