Welcome to the Lawn Fawn December Inspiration Week!
Today the Lawn Fawn Design Team is showcasing the brand new Octipi My Heart Stamp Set and coordinating dies and new Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Dies! I created a shaker card for this love-themed shaker card!
I stamped the octupus, hearts, and bow from the Octipi My Heart mini stamp set and the seaweed and coral from the Fintastic Friends Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock using Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink and colored in the images with Copic Markers. I die cut the images with the coordinating Octipi My Heart and Fintastic Friends Dies, adding detail to the images with black and white glaze pens and the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker.
I die cut a frame for my shaker from smooth white cardstock using a new Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Frame and a Large Dotted Rectangle Frame. I colored both with Barn Door, Picked Raspberry, and Spun Sugar Distress Inks. I spritzed the pieces with water from a Distress Sprayer and blotted the pieces dry with a paper towel.
I stamped the greeting(s) from the Octipi My Heart Stamp Set on a piece of acetate using Cotton White StazOn Ink. I love stamping my greetings for shakers on the acetate window so that the greeting is never covered up by the shaker material.
I assembled the shaker as shown and filled it with some micro beads for "bubbles" in this underwater love-themed scene! The larger hearts were adhered to the front of the shaker for a pop of color.
To makde the background of the card more interesting, I added a couple of layers of die cut smooth white cardstock. The background is still white but so much more interesting because of the texture of the die cuts! I used the largest Fancy Scalloped Rectangle and a Small Dotted Rectangle Die for create the layers.
