I Lava You

Greetings, crafty folks! I've got a shaker card to share with you today that features the Unicorn Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground. I went very clean and simple with my last shaker, so I decided to go a totally different route with this one.

I have this really old stamp from Judi Kins of this funky lava lamp. It's just begging to be turned into a shaker, don't you think? So I pulled out my stash of Distress Oxide backgrounds to see if there was anything I liked for this stamp and I came across this brightly colored, very watery-looking piece. It has a lot of movement and the colors worked perfectly with the Unicorn Sparkle Blend, so that's what I decided to go with. I stamped the lamp with VersaFine Claire ink on to the background and cut ut the center with an X-Acto Knife.
 
I built my shaker quickly with foam tape and added the Sparkle Blend. I made sure to get some Fimo pieces in there, like the green smiley face. I love how colorful and opalescent this Blend is! It really is my favorite one. I backed the shaker with a scrap Distress Oxide background, and then I realized I forgot to add my sentiment. Oops! Thankfully, with the amount of foam tape that I added to my background, it wasn't a problem stamping on the surface. I used the Storybook Alphabet from Stampendous.

I wanted a little more shine on the front of the card, so I added a few additional sequins with On Point Glue from Imagine. I added my background to a white card base and called it a day. Since the background was made ahead of time, it took hardly any time at all to make this card.

I encourage you to go through your stamps and see what portions you can remove to turn them into shakers. I bet you have many stamps you can use for this technique! I have been having a good time trying to look at my stamps in different ways so that I can make them shakers. If you are interested in getting some Sparkle Blends for yourself, please visit White Rose Crafts LLC, as they are the only shop that you can get them. There are lots of Sparkle Blends to choose from, and they are all truly beautiful. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
