Have I got a fun project for you today! I'm back with another spotlight on Two Paper Divas Stamps with a fun, mini shaker card. I had such a blast making this, seriously, I did. Plus, I love that it showcases another way of using the Journal It!1 stamp set with that little word, "thankful". It's been a super hot and muggy summer, here in the South, and I am begging Fall to hurry up and get here. With that being said, I definitely had Autumn on my mind when I made this.
The easiest way for me to stamp multiples of a word is to lay down a strip of washi tape so everything lines up easily. I prefer washi tape because it's easily removable and I have a pretty good stash, but you can use any kind of removable tape. I stamped one line at a time, then dropped my washi tape down another line and repeated the process until I had enough stamped words to cut a
3" x 3" square. I simply eyeballed how far I needed to drop down my tape but if you prefer to measure, it's approximately 3/4".
Before cutting my square, I wanted to go ahead and color my words using my Kaisercraft gel and glitter pens. I snagged these recently and LOVE them. The pens have a super fine tip and were perfect for this project. I chose 3 Fall-ish colors to fit in with my Thanksgiving theme. Let me tell you, those glitter pens really make my stamped words sparkle.
When I finished, I cut a 3"x3" square using my Cuttlebug and my Spellbinders Celebrations pierced square dies, at an angle. Scroll to the bottom for a full supply list for all the items that I used.
I think these mini shakers would make a fun little place card at the Thanksgiving table, don't you? You could even add a little tag with each family members name. Festive and fun! Stretch your journaling stamps and give this a try. Stop back by this weekend; the new August stamps will be released at Two Paper Divas on 8/5 and 8/6 and there will be lots of fabulous samples from the design team.
