Originally I scored the upper left and lower right corners, but they didn’t show up very well, so I added gold pen to the score lines.  The holly was painted with  Artist’s Loft Pearlescent watercolors found at Michaels .   The sentiment is from  A Festive Season by Penny Black and also heat embossed with gold.

(2018 c135) Lawn Fawn Birthday Shaker

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Shaker card background was made by impressing Lawn Fawn:  Stitched Leaves into the back side of Kodak Photo Paper,  As you can see on the zoomed in photo below:

I am soooo frugal that I save everything and This was a leftover photo that had been printed on the front side & 2 pictures had been cut out with a circle die for a scrapbook page long ago.

Next I colored the background by adding the powdered Pigment product called Color Burst by Ken Oliver then spritzed with water I covered the leaves to protect them.  Then I colored the leaves with Ranger Alcohol Inks  Sandal, Terra Cotta & Lettuce plus a little 91% alcohol.  The background inside the shaker circle was made with Yupo Paper and Ranger Alcohol Inks  Lemonade, Sandal,  Red Pepper & Lettuce.  The sentiment was cut with Lawn Fawn Happy Birthday Boarder Die.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

UPDATE:  As you can see below I added the regular sized Crazy Bird on the front of the card!  I thought it was just a little too plain so I added the big bird who must be encouraging more break-outs!  The photo on the right was the original post, I left all the other photos as originally posted)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAToday I used  Shrinky Dinks (this is a different product from yesterday’s shaker elements.  This one has a rough side that you can color)  I tamped with Jet Black Stazon Ink and cut out with Spellbinders dies. On the right you can see the tiny shrunk birds sitting inside their dies to see the shrinkage.

Here is another photo below showing the shaker elements and there is one bird that is making a break-out through the bars (he is actually on the outside of the acetate.  The cage frame is cut with Sizzix Bigz Die Caged Bird (Which is no longer available)

Shaker card FUN today!  I appologise for the photograph quality, it was hard to catch the yellow color on the cardbase (look closely at the upper left corner of the last Photo to see  almost the true yellow color),  but the yellow vellum showed up well.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The book mark was stamped with my newest Lawn Fawn Thanks A Latte  and colored with CopicsThe background was colored with Artist’s Loft Pearlescent watercolors found at Michaels .  I added 4 gold oblong sequins that look like leaves to the bookmark.   OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe leaves on the card base were first colored on Kodak Photo Paper with Ranger Alcohol Inks  Lemonade, Sandal,  Red Pepper, Valencia & Lettuce.  The leaves were cut out with Lawn Fawn:  Stitched Leaves.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Happy birthday was cut with my OLDEST Lawn Fawn product:  Lawn Fawn Happy Birthday Boarder Die.  That was mounted on black card stock and strong adhesive was applied to the ends only so that the book mark could be slipped behind the  sentiment.  That way the bookmark can be removed and used.  The first photo was taken before I laminated the bookmark, because I often have problems with glares when photographing.

Sadly this CUTE stamp set called Smitten Kitten appears to be discontinued at Sugar Pea Designsbut they still have the dies (hopefully they are just temporarily out of stock?) I stamped them on white cardstock and colored with Copics.  Then I covered the images with Fine Line Masking Fluid Pen Fine Tip 4449 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI cut the tops of the kitten’s heads out and then used stencils and sponged  with Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger to create the blue carpet and On another piece of white card stock for the chevron wall paper.  As you can see photo on the right  the shadow shows where I “Popped Up” the fussy cut portion of the kitty’s heads by applying Helmar: Liquid Scrap Dots and letting it set overnight.
