It's time for the So Suzy Stamps May Release for the Stamp of the Month Club! To kick things off this month, I thought it would be fun to create a flat shaker card with a "porthole". I have a fabulous circle die from Pinkfresh Studio that fit the bill perfectly, along with my WRMK Fuse. And, I love the stamp this month. Isn't it amazing?
To start, I inked my image with TH Brushed Corduroy distress ink and distressed my Authentique papers from the Anchored Collection with my TH distress tool. I heat embossed my sentiment on vellum with white pigment ink and clear embossing powder, than swiped a brown Tombow marker across each embossed line. You can grab that sentiment in Suzy's store, here.
Now it's time to FUSE! Just line up your ruler as close to the edge of your cardstock as you can. Don't forget to toss your sequins in before you fuse your last side.
When you're all done..... shake, shake, shake! It's fun to do and fun to give to your friends and family. Kids of all ages love shaker cards. This can even be displayed on a little wooden easel. It's the perfect card for the traveler, adventurer or lover of all things nautical. The sentiment that I used turns this into an encouragement card, as well. Have fun with the new Stamp of the Month!
I hope you enjoyed my project and handy tips. Check out Suzy's website and do some shopping while you're at it. Then take a look at the SAM club. Exclusive membership gets you special stamps each month, plus membership into a private Facebook group, fun giveaways and more!
