JAI #404: Just Add A Shaker

Hi!

Have you missed me? I felt a bit sorry for my poor, neglected blog, but my building work has finally been completed. I wasn't able to get into my craft space the whole 4 weeks of the work, so it's great to be back creating again. Last weekend's On Stage event was the perfect timing to reboot the ole mojo.


This week at Just Add Ink Di set the challenge, and it's to Just Add A Shaker. What an awesome challenge!


The best part about making a shaker card for me is choosing what will go inside the shaker. Sequins and glitter are fun, but sometimes you just need to think outside the box! While I was pondering, my eye fell upon a bag of dried lavender that a lovely friend had given to me, and that kick started my card.

I actually made this card before the renovations started and during the middle of Sale-A-Bration. I used two SAB stamp sets, that are now no longer current. The lavender image is from Lots Of Lavender. It's such a pretty set! It was stamped on scrap card and then fussy cut to layer over the top of the shaker window.

You may be able to see the second SAB set in this picture. I used one of the 'sprinkles' stamps from Eclectic Expressions to create a subtle feature across the front of the card. How lovely does the dried lavender look in the shaker window? It smells great too!

The Lots Of Lavender stamp set coordinates with the Lots Of Happy Card kit, so I used a sentiment stamp from the kit to complete the inside.

That's it from me for now - my first Just Add Ink card in little while. It's great to be back into the swing of things again! See you over at the JAI blog.

Bye for now,

Tina
