Good Morning crafty peeps!!
I'm here today bringing you a pretty little shaker card using a beautiful range of products from Sweet Stamps called Piccolo!
When I first saw this pretty floral tree image I knew I wanted to use the Piccolo Enamel Powders to add color and dimension to the shape.
I used the Piccolo Embossing Powder Adhesive and covered the entire outside edge and several of the flowers with the adhesive liquid. I applied Shamrock Dreams Enamel Powder and heat set it. I repeated that method with Mardi Gras Enamel Powder and Copper Kettle Enamel Powder to cover the rest of the tree. I finished the tree with dots of metallic pearl paint around the edges - and set it aside to dry.
I die cut an A2 sized frame out of brown glitter cardstock and layered in on top of the soft brown snowflake paper. After the tree was completely dry, I used it to trace a window in the middle of the snowflake paper, cut it out and fit the tree into the window.
I attached clear transparency to the back of the piece, making sure to cover all the little openings in the tree, and then used foam adhesive to create a well for my shaker.
I filled the shaker with brown seed beads from my stash and Sugar Beads from the Sweet Stamps store. (I wish I had used a few sequins or confetti to make the shaker a little more obvious, but there's always next time!) Lastly, I adhered the whole front piece to an A2 cardbase!
I had SUCH fun working with these products and I can't wait to break out my Piccolos again! Take a look at the Sweet Stamps store for tons of pretty and intricate shapes like this!
Have a wonderful weekend queenies!
