Creative Escape Papercrafting Fall Frenzy Kit and a Shaker Card


Hi.. this is my 4th card for Creative Escape Papercrafting using the Fall Frenzy Kit. For this card I am sharing a shaker with fun sequins. I save lots of plastic shapes from scrappy packaging to create my shaker cards... they are perfect and the many shapes and sizes are awesome.


Description

This kit is packed with hand-picked goodies to enable you to have a fall card making frenzy.  It’s perfect for Thanksgiving cards but also has elements that you can use all year.
The kit contains:
1 “Forest Feast” Lawn Fawn stamp set featuring 14 images and 11 words/phrases (made in the USA)
1 “So Thankful for You” Lawn Fawn die, approx. 5.75″ long (made in the USA)
1 Echo Park “A Perfect Autumn” 12×12 Double Sided Paper 3″x4″ Journaling Cards (cut into 2 pieces for shipment) (made in the USA)
1 Echo Park “A Perfect Autumn” Seasonal Stripe, approx. 12″x1.75″ (made in the USA)
12 double-sided 6″x6″ sheets of Echo Park “A Perfect Autumn” paper (made in the USA)
1 sheet of 8.5″x11″ yellow card stock
2 sheets of 8.5″x11″ kraft card stock
3 sheets of 8.5″x11″ white card stock
1 sheet of 8.5″x5.5″ copper card stock
1 sheet of 8.5″x5.5″ water color paper
1 sheet of 8.5″x5.5″ alcohol marker paper
1 Fall Frenzy sequins mix (1.5 teaspoons of sequins)
3 assorted die cut pumpkins (various sizes)
10 assorted die cut leaves (various colors and shapes)
3ft of yellow and white cord
3ft of  jute twine
3ft of natural hemp cord
1 bottle of Golden Sunset Nuvo Glitter Drops (1 fl oz)

So to start this shaker card... I pulled the plastic form to hold the sequins, some accents, paper and a cut small sentiment and the base cardstock.  I am using a square to accommodate the shape of the plastic size.


I decided it would be really colourful... so I also make the background base for the shaker super colourful using  rows of fun bright strips.


I cut the plastic to be a perfect square.... and filled it with sequins. This piece of plastic actually had the border edge that would allow me to slide the print paper background into the slots... glue is added to all the outer edges to contain the sequins.


After it's glued I use clips and papers clips to hold it firmly while it's drying.


I now put the rest of the layers together. A beige behind the shaker section and then I wrapped and tied a bow around the shaker section .. then glued it to the background base.  All this was then mounted to the fun bold red cardstock and mounted to the base white cardstock card.


In the close up you will be able to see the details.... as the layers and fun twine tied bow in this one.


Here is the section with the matted sentiment applied.


Here is my finished shaker card.

Thanks for stopping by... I'll have many more cards from this kit to share so hope to see you again soon....... have a great day.

Do all the scoring and cutting... then fold on the lines.

Once you have the base you pull papers, accents and trims that you would like to use to decorate your card. .... anything goes at this point. I fussy cut the owl from paper and matted it. The kit came with some super fun leaves and pumpkins for you to use.


Start with some base prints to fit the pieces into place. 



Mix and match the prints any way you like... lots of options.


I popped dotted the owl to stand out off the front of the card.


Here is my finished card showing you all the details on all sides for your viewing.


I added nuvo glitter around the edges of the owl image.... the sparkle is perfect.


More up close shots for your viewing.


What a great die cut sentiment.


It folds down flat to put in the envelope.

So glad you could stop by today. Hope to see you again soon,

Creative Escape Papercrafting using Fall Frenzy Kit


Hi.. this is my 2nd card for Creative Escape Papercrafting using the Fall Frenzy Kit. It is also an easel card showcasing lots of amazing layers, colours and accents with some cool stamping.


Description

This kit is packed with hand-picked goodies to enable you to have a fall card making frenzy.  It’s perfect for Thanksgiving cards but also has elements that you can use all year.
The kit contains:
1 “Forest Feast” Lawn Fawn stamp set featuring 14 images and 11 words/phrases (made in the USA)
1 “So Thankful for You” Lawn Fawn die, approx. 5.75″ long (made in the USA)
1 Echo Park “A Perfect Autumn” 12×12 Double Sided Paper 3″x4″ Journaling Cards (cut into 2 pieces for shipment) (made in the USA)
1 Echo Park “A Perfect Autumn” Seasonal Stripe, approx. 12″x1.75″ (made in the USA)
12 double-sided 6″x6″ sheets of Echo Park “A Perfect Autumn” paper (made in the USA)
1 sheet of 8.5″x11″ yellow card stock
2 sheets of 8.5″x11″ kraft card stock
3 sheets of 8.5″x11″ white card stock
1 sheet of 8.5″x5.5″ copper card stock
1 sheet of 8.5″x5.5″ water color paper
1 sheet of 8.5″x5.5″ alcohol marker paper
1 Fall Frenzy sequins mix (1.5 teaspoons of sequins)
3 assorted die cut pumpkins (various sizes)
10 assorted die cut leaves (various colors and shapes)
3ft of yellow and white cord
3ft of  jute twine
3ft of natural hemp cord
1 bottle of Golden Sunset Nuvo Glitter Drops (1 fl oz)

Up first I laid out on orange paper the stamp images I wanted to work with.


I used my mini misti stamping tool.


I thanks matted the main background paper. and cut some other pieces.


With pieces ready I also stamped the sentiment.


With the basics all ready I foam popped up the pendant cluster.


Here is the photo of my main front part of the card. 


Using my Big Shot Express I die cut the Lawn Fawn sentiment.


I shaped the card base to form the easel style. My easy method is to just fold the front panel into the centre at the half way fold. To form the front I cut an extra piece the same size as the full front panel and decorate it.



The front panel  gets glued to only the one half section of the fold.


Now on the inside I decorate the  panel with a cardstock background to start.


I then use smaller pieces to decorate the inside, add the extra stamped and matted section and through the upper section I use a border piece glued on top of all the layers to make the ledge to hold the front panel up in place.


The die cut sentiment was added to the front and the card is done.... and the easel portion of the card is perfect... Easel sections also add some extra colour and decor to a card.





Thanks for stopping by... hope to see you again soon.
