Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today’s card was inspired by the current Ai Blog Challenge called “Shake it Up!” and asks you to create a shaker card or have something that shakes, moves or even wobbles!

Let’s start by creating the basic design of our slimline card. To do this we will die cut a frame and center panel using the Ai Slimline Die Set (5463).

Now let’s get to the brand-new Ai Hot Air Balloon Set (5789) that we will be using today. This fun set includes several different sizes of the hot air balloons so that you can create some beautiful scenes with lots of perspective and interest.

We will stamp three of the large balloons onto the inside panel of our card. Let’s also stamp one more onto some Gina K. Masking Magic and cut this out using our detail scissors. This mask will be used when we stencil the clouds in the background. It will keep us from getting any color onto the balloons.

Next, we can temporarily place these two pieces back together so that we can stencil some pretty clouds in the background using the Lawn Fawn Cloudy Stencil. We will be using the Lisa Horton Crafts – Cloud 9 – Metallic Interference Ink Pad in Teal Twist for the clouds. This ink pad is so unique because of the interference nature of it which causes it to change color depending on the cardstock color it is place on. I will show you these differences in today’s video!

To add a bit more interest to the background we can add a few birds using the Lawn Fawn Beach Sunset Stencils and some Tim Holtz Black Soot ink.

Now we can color in the balloons using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Wine Red, Bright Yellow, Orange, Scarlet Red, Yellow, Aquamarine Blue, Cobalt Blue, Smoky Teal, May Green, Green, Beige, Mid Brown, Cool Gray 3.

We will now add some pretty metallic accents using the Signo Gel Pens in Silver and Gold!

We can build our shaker card by adding some clear acetate to the frame and then adding some 3D Foam Tape (remember to double this up) around the edges of the center panel. Let’s place some pretty clear sequins inside the shaker area and assemble the card and add a few extra sequins to the outside of the shaker to bring everything together!

Next, we can add a few sentiments using the brand-new Ai Mini Birthday Sentiment Set (5866) and the Ai Birthday Sentiments Set (5735). We will stamp the sentiments onto some black cardstock and emboss with white embossing powder. We will die cut these sentiments using the Ai Flag Double Stitched Dies (5133). I’ll show you a little trick for adjusting your dies to fit your sentiment!
