What a fun challenge, warrior1991! Love the cupcake sprinkles in the card! Would never have thought of using those! After being brainwashed about only using archival materials for scrapbook pages, I forget that for cards we don't have to worry about that.
Since I am on a Christmas card kick, I think I need to dig out my snow globe die & stamp set--and my patience--and see if I can actually glue together two layers with glue that will hold GLITTER and not leak it all out when you shake it...
Can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!
Cool. I'll have to dig through my stash and see what I have. I might need to make some paper confetti because I'm not sure I have much else. I really want to get some fake snowflake fluff to put in Christmas shakers.
Here is my card. I used glitter, and so far it is staying put. This is the second attempt, b/c in the first one I buried that poor little bear in "snow" by putting too much glitter in. I managed to contain the glitter by putting in two layers of acetate--one just behind the silver diecut and in front of the foam diecut, and then a second layer behind the foam so I could fill it (not too much, I discovered ) while upside down, then add the acetate. That way I could see better when doing final assembly.
My card for the day incorporates three stamp sets in this little card. GinaK Autumn Wreath Builder for the leaves, LF Stamptember exclusive Nutty or Nice for the small acorn, and the SSS Nov 2016 card kit Nutty Over You for the sentiment. I added seed beads in with with acorns.
That card is gorgeous, GiantsFan. Great job using all those different manufacturers! I love the colours you chose, how you used the vellum to support your greeting, and those cute little acorns in there with the beads.
I sort of pinched Mel 's example for her challenge for this card, and added paper stars for my shaker element.
GiantsFan I love your sprinkles in the birthday cards, great idea and I'd love to try it... but considering my track record with small things I'll stick to digital versions! When I made the Nuvo dots the other week I found them dropping off my wheelchair hours later Your Autumn card is lovely too
grammadee well done on using proper glitter! I really like your globe
scrapnnana that's a beautiful vintage card, really lovely
Shaker pouch and dies from MFT, stamps from Mama Elephant (bunny and tree) and Hero Arts (sentiment). I used glass micro beads in the shaker pouch. I did use some Honey Bee bokeh sequins on the card but not in the shaker. I inked the background of the shaker with distress oxides and colored the images with copic markers.

I'm having some shaker challenges challenges, so still no card yet.
I found some fake snow in my late MIL's massive craft stash but I decided not to bring it home with me. I did think of this challenge at the time though. And then I had the bright idea to use coffee grounds in a coffee shaker card, which would smell delicious too. But then we drank the coffee instead... lol. I might still try that out though - course grinds, or maybe I'll use some coarse instant coffee, which is much less of a waste of coffee.
My goal is to get some tiny punched Halloween bats into a shaker. I inherited a bat punch that makes the most adorable little guys, but I haven't quite figured out the rest of the card.
Good grief! I'm not a shaker card person, so thanks for the good challenge.
I messed up several times on my way to making this card, but taking so long allowed me to use something from a later challenge on it - messy texture, as well as the paper confetti. I punched the tiny bats from scrap cardstock, slathered homemade texture past on a circular scrap for the moon, made a couple of circle frames, stamped and cut some more skelly-critters and puzzled over why they didn't include a skelly-bat?! Anyway, I think the owl is pretty cool too, and I like the creepy background paper I got at Michaels with the stamps, and the textured moon came out pretty cool. I probably should have added some shading or something to it, but I was scared to mess it up. I stuck a few bats on the outside of the shaker so it would be more obvious what the confetti actually is.
