Shake it

Hi, everyone hope you're all good.

Some more projects to share with you today.

A shaker card made really easy with the SHAKE IT pouches from Impression Obsession.
I bought these at the last Harrogate show and i'm really mad with myself I can't remember the seller,
I hope they are there at the next show.
They are self adheshive and only about an 1/8th" deep. you can buy overlays too but I used the Sizzix top note die from Stampin Up and cut the oval with the large nessty.
Stamps I used are from Molly Bloom, Rudolph Joy and Gingerbread Garland.
Copic colouring ( I will get back into telling you the colours i've used )
Cardstock is Bazzil bling green and the real red from SU paper is Forever Friends Cosy Christmas stack
Greeting IO clear stamp word window and modern label punch SU
Holly leaves Quickcutz
To make the shaker I used German glass glitter, it's really nice and  makes a lovey shaky sound.
It could have done with just a bit less so you could read the word, but hay ho!! I'll know for next time.

I'm sharing this with Truly Scrumptious challenge ~ shaker card

More projects...

Treat pouches  

christmas bauble

Box for the bauble
The inspiration for these came from some lovely talented SU demos.
The tutorial for the treat pouches can be found on our sweet Monica's blog here thank you hun fab video x

I'm sorry I can't give credit for the bauble as i've lost the link but she made a pumpkin.
I've had the paper kit called Christmas Jingle from SU for a while. It came with cardstock, papers and diecuts a brilliant kit... i'm so sorry it's not in the catty now.

I cut  18    6" x 1/2" strips with victorian cutter on my Rotatrim. Needs to be heavy weight paper.
Punch a hole through all the strips on both ends, a crop a dile would be best so the holes are in the same place.
 Push a large brad through one end and a length of 3/8ths ribbon then through the other end, the ribbon is in the center of the bauble. Pull to form a circle and tie a knot in the ribbon.
Move the strips of paper around evenly.
The poinsettia flowers are with Marianne Die but I split the paper after I cut them to reveal the inside makes them look more like mulberrry paper. Thanks again to Monica. x
I put some flowers inside too. scrolls are sizzix sizzlits dies swirls scribbles from SU
Stamp used on the treat pouch is from the sparkly and bright set SU

ABC christmas challenge is ~ unused stash 

Thanks for stopping by have a good evening,
