Today I’m making a Quick and easy vellum shaker card using Paper Temptess Card stock/Vellum and Gerda Steiner Designs Rubber stamp called Monster Kid. I’ll be using several different products today, and I’ll explain a little about these products as I go. First off, I’m using Gerda’s Rubber stamp today, and she has Digital stamps, Clear stamps and Rubber stamps available in her store. I use her Digital and Clear stamps all the time, but I think this is the first time I’m sharing her Rubber stamps. Just to explain a little about her rubber stamps, her rubber stamps come in Rubber only form. Which means, it doesn’t have the cling cushion that you normally use to stick the stamp on to your acrylic block. You have the option to mount them onto a cling foam mount if you choose to do so. I like to use my bare rubber stamps with the Aileen’s tack it over and over glue, which I explain in the video. Her rubber stamps are excellent quality and it’s very thick and deeply etched, which will give you a really great impression. I decide to use watercolor pencils to color in this image and I’m using the Faber Castell’s Art grip watercolor pencils. These watercolor pencils are highly pigmented, great quality pencils which blend really easily, as you can see in the video. They’re available in color family sets as well as different quantity sets. I have a few of the color family sets, and I didn’t have all the color pallet available to me, so I implemented the Peerless watercolor as well. These are fantastic pencils, and I love them dearly.
I also made a simple shaker portion, using some of Paper Temptress’s yummy colored vellum. I love making this simple shaker, which is simple to make yet very fun. Her vellum is perfect for things like this, because they are very thick and high quality. I love these purple and orange card stocks, which also has some texture to them, which will add some more interest to this card. Her card stocks are very thick and sturdy, making them very easy to work with. I hope you like this card and please check out the video for the step by step tutorial. I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please subscribe and follow for more inspiration and ideas. Thanks again.
