Pretty Pink Posh – Flourishing Fuchsias Shaker Card

Hi, Friends!

Welcome to today’s Pretty Pink Posh (PPP) post. I’ve created shaker card – which I love doing for PPP – using the Flourishing Fuchsias set along with a few other stamps and die sets.

I started by stamping and coloring the fuchsias along with a hummingbird image from Hummingbird Thanks.

Copic Colors:
R0000, RV10, RV55, RV19, V04, V17 (flowers+hummingbird)
G00, BG11, BG24 (hummigbird)
G12, G05, G17 (leaves)

After coloring, I die-cut the images and set them aside to work on the card and shaker portion.

I ink-blended a panel using Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink to die cut the Smile Shaker die. Using Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide ink, I ink-blended some in on a card panel before cutting a circle out of it – slightly smaller than the smile shaker die to give it a little accent ring. Then I ink-blended the card base to match underneath.

I added acetate to the back of my card panel, then adhered foam adhesive to it to create my shaker. I placed a fair amount of Spring Meadow and Sparkling Clear Confetti sequins on the card base over the ink-blended area, keeping it confined to a small area while I adhered the top of the card panel to the cardbase to seal in the shaker portion.

Next, I began arranging the flowers and leaves onto the card, arranging them to surround the smile shaker. The hummingbird is attached as I felt appropriate – flying towards a fuchsia at the bottom of my shaker.

To finish my card, I stamped a sentiment from the Encouraging Greetings set in the bottom right hand corner to fill in the white space. Ideally, you want to stamp the sentiment before adding adhesive and putting it on a cardbase – but since I used wide pieces of foam adhesive under it, I thought I was safe. I hope you enjoyed this card – thanks for stopping by today!
