Stamp Ink Paper Challenge 90 - Shaker Cards

I've been away on business for a week and  haven't had a chance to make it back to the craft room. I've been itching to take a stab at a few challenges so you may see a few posts today as I stamp away and submit my projects.

It's the first time I'm submitting a project to the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge and It's a shaker card challenge.  I've made a few shaker cards in the past and love the outcome.  This was a fun project and I thought I'd give fussy cutting a try. I used a stamp set for this shaker card that doesn't have a die.  I'd love to hear what you think...

Card Measurements and Supplies:

card base: Whisper White #100730 4 1/4" by 11" scored at 5 1/2"
base layer: Sweet Sugarplum (#141418) cut at 4" by 5 1/4"
shaker layer: Whisper White cut at 2 1/2" x 4 1/4"
Window Sheets #142314
Scrap: Basic Gray #121044
Foil Sheet Silver #132178

Ink: StazOn Ink #101406
So Saffron #126957
Wisteria Wonder #126985
Perfect Plum #126963
Sweet Sugarplum #141395
Island Indigo #126986
Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker #100082

Stamp Set: Beautiful Ride #140738  (retired)
Thinlitslit Set: Sunshine Wishes #141489
Ornate Tag Topper Punch #137416 (retired) great substitute is Scalloped Tag Topper #133324
Bakers Twine - Blushing Bride #141683

SNAIL Adhesive #104332
Fine-Tip Glue Pen #138309
Stampin 'Dimensions # 104430
Foam Adhesive Strips #141825

Stamp the Love Bug image on the Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and cut out the image using papersnips.  Stamp the image again on the window sheet using the black StazOn ink.  Line up the cut out with the stamped window sheet and adhere together using SNAIL adhesive.  Using Foam Adhesive Strips, outline the car image and fill with sequence or confetti.  I used confetti I already had in my stash but I would suggest Stampin' Ups Metallics Sequin Assortment #138390 or Brights Sequin Assortment #138389.  Once the sequins is added, remove the adhesive and adhere the scrap Whisper White backing.  

Punch out a scrap Whisper White piece of card stock using the scallop punch and layer with the punched basic gray piece.  Cut out the word "love" and the heart form the Sunshine Wishes thinlits on to a scrap pieces of coordinating cardstock.  Adhere to the card front using the fine tip glue pen.  Stamp balloons from the same stamp set on to scrap Whisper White cardstock and using paper snips, fussy cut the balloons and with an Aqua Painter, color the balloons using Wisteria Wonder, So Saffron, Sweet Sugarplum, Island Indigo and Perfect Plum ink. Adhere to the card front using dimensionals. Using a black Stampin Write Marker, draw in the balloon strings.

Wrap bakers twine around the card front twice and tie in a bow. Using dimensionals, adhere the front panel to the card base.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I hope this project inspires you.
