NC Stampin' Up! Demos July Blog Hop

Welcome to the July NC Stampin' Up! Demos Blog Hop where we are celebrating all things summer. If you are following through the hop, you just saw the fantastic summery project by Laurie Meier

For today's post I made a shaker card featuring the Whale Done bundle which includes the Whale Done stamp set and Whale Builder punch.

I couldn't seem to get a good picture without any glare. I'm sorry about that. Here's a close up that might help you get a better idea what inside the circle looks like. There are lots more sequins, but they are pooled at the bottom and hidden by the whale and seaweed. You also can see the details of the Seabed embossing folder better in this picture.

I had a few issues with the shaker part and I'm going to share because maybe my experience will help you. I was out of Foam Adhesive sheets and tried to make due with what I have. Sequins have already fallen out despite the fact it seemed like I had a good seal. I am definitely waiting until I order new Foam Adhesive sheets before making another shaker card. It is so much easier and effective to just cut use my Layering Circles dies to cut a ring from the Foam Adhesive Sheet. Also be sure to use the Window Sheets. They are much easier to work with and give a better seal than other things you might think about substituting.

Here's how I finished the inside of the card.


Stamps: Whale Done
Punch: Whale Builder
Embossing Folder: Seabed
Dies: Layering Circles
Cardstock: Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Pretty Peacock, Sahara Sand, Smoky Slate, Soft Suede
Embellishments: Sequins

I am thinking I am going to have to get that stamp set and the DSP. Cute card

I love this DSP. I have not purchased it but it is now on backorder. I am happy someone used it for our blog hop.

I love your card and am wishing I had purchased this suite earlier. Now some things are back ordered and I’ll have to wait. That will teach me!

Jo Anne Hewins said...

That is some of the prettiest DSP. I love it. I had not thought to use the Foam Adhesive Sheets for a shaker card. Great idea!!!
