    I was lucky enough to make a few samples for the Stampers Anonymous booth at this years Creativation with Tim Holtz wonderful new stamps and stencils. Today I want to share a close-up look at the shaker card that I made.

    I used the new entomology stamp set (CMS328), one of my favourites from the new release, not least of all because of that background stamp! Can you believe how many stamps Stampers Anonymous crammed onto one stamp sheet?!

    I also used the new hive stencil (THS105)! I love the total lack of symmetry and organic look to it.

    I stamped the bee a bunch of times onto distress watercolor cardstock with black soot distress archival ink. Watercoloured fossilized amber over the body and a light wash of tumbled glass over the wings, using distress markers scribbled onto a non stick craft sheet and picked up with a water brush.

    Yes I fussy cut all these bees! I find fussy cutting so relaxing, it’s my jam (or honey in this case)!

    I created the background by stamping that gorgeous background stamp from the entomology set onto distress heavystock with hickory smoke distress archival ink and covering with a frayed burlap distress wash. Spread texture paste through the hive stencil, and once dry, blended in fossilized amber and brushed corduroy distress inks.

    I die cut a postage frame from idea-ology substrate sheet, adhered acetate to the underside with distress collage medium and mounted over strips of black adhesive foam. Using the new ornate trims stamps set (CMS326) to create a cute vintage border.

    Finally I mounted the shaker card over metallic and classic kraft stock (sanded of course). You can see the shaker card “shake it” over on my instagram.

    Next on this blog hop is the very lovely and talented Joy Kennedy.

    Hope you’ve enjoyed my shaker card and that this blog hop inspires you to create.
