Sequin Shaker Blog Hop

I’m joining in on the Pretty Pink Posh sequin shaker card blog hop. It’s been a white since I’d made one of these fun cards and I’m thrilled with how my card turned out.

I Like You a Watt-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Simon Says Stamp
My shaker panel features the light bulb image from the Simon Says Stamp Watts Up set. I added a hand-drawn string extending from the top of the bulb to the top of the panel to ground the light, then stamped the set’s “I like you a watt” sentiment at the bottom of the panel in bold, contrasting red ink.

After tossing in a mix of sequins that includes Pretty Pink Posh’s Lemon Meringue, Lemon Drop, Sparkling Clear, and Gold Star sequins (plus a few other random ones from my stash!), I added the yellow dotted die cut frame on top. The frame is adhered on an angle to a gray card base over a long yellow fishtail flag strip. I accented the shaker with a pair of die cut hearts.

Materials Used:
Watts Up stamp set (Simon Says Stamp); Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Memento Luxe Dandelion inks (Tsukineko); Cherry ink (Avery Elle); Steel Grey and Lemon Drop cardstock, Die-namics Fishtail Flag Layers Stax die (My Favorite Things); stitched rectangle and stitched heart dies (Lil’ Inker Designs); sequins (Pretty Pink Posh); acetate; foam tape
