Hello friends! Today I'm here with a jellybean shaker card featuring the new How Have You Bean? Stamp Set and coordinating dies and the the Add On Dies. My favorite thing about the How Have You Bean Stamp Set is that you can used the faces to customize the jellybeans or you can leave them plain, depending on your mood or the occasion you're creating the card for! I have loved this with previously released Lawn Fawn stamp sets, like the Sweet Smiles Stamp Set used on THIS gum ball card and THIS one, too!
For the background of my card, I die cut two large stitched rectangles from Watercolor Wishes 6x6 paper using the A2 sized Large Stitched Rectangle Die. From the green rectangle I die cut two grassy borders with a new Simple Grassy Hillsides Die.
For the greetings, I stamped two phrases from the How Have You Bean? Stamp Set in the upper right corner using Jet Black Ink. I stamped the Hello from the Yay Kites Stamp Set with Lawn Fawn Mermaid Ink above the phrases for a two-tone greeting. I love the look of the scripty greeting in a different color!
I adhered one grassy border directly to the background and popped the other one on top with two layers of foam adhesive.
For the jellybean shaker, I stamped the jellybean images, lid, and jar from the How Have You Bean? Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock using Jet Black Ink and colored in the images with Copic Markers before die cutting with the coordinating dies. Instead of the coordinating jar die, I used the coordinating Add On Dies to die cut the jar, a backer and a transparency to create the shaker. To easy make a dimensional shaker shape, I die cut the jar frame from Fun Foam backed on both sides with Stick It that way I didn't have to try and trim or piece pieces of fun foam together to make the shaker "well". Easy peasy!
I assembled the shaker as shown below in the video, adding a few loose jellybeans as my shaker material, and then tucked the jar into the grass on my card. The lid was adhered next to the jar in the grass so that it appears the lid popped off and the jellybeans scattered!
I adhered the extra jellybeans throughout the scene, finishing with a layer of Glossy Accents to make them a bit dimensional and shiny!
