Easy Shaker Card Using Vellum and Faber Castell Pencils-Gerda Steiner Designs and Paper Temptress





Aloha Guys!

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.

Gerda Steiner Designs Kitten with Chickens Shaker Card

Aloha Guys!

Today I’m making a card for Gerda Steiner Designs March Challenge Card.  I’ll be making a Shaker card today, I love shaker cards:)  For those of you that are not familiar of this Progressive Challenge that Gerda has, I’ll explain a little about it.

Once you purchase an image and participate in the current challenge she has going on.  Next Month, she’ll email you the following month’s challenge image for FREE.  This is an ongoing thing as long as you participate in her challenges, which is super Awesome!!  This month’s image is this Kitten with Chickens.  I’ll leave a link below if you’re interested.

Today I’ll be doing some watercoloring so I printed this image out on watercolor paper.  When I’m printing a Digital image on watercolor, I print them out on 90lb. Strathmore paper so it doesn’t jam in my printer.  I then cut out the image using the Lawn Fawn’s Large Stitched rectangle.  I also cut a glitter card stock as well as 6 frames that’s bigger that my focal panel to create a frame for my Shaker.

I colored this using a Simply Art watercolor pallet.  This is a very inexpensive watercolor set that you can purchase for $6-$8 depending on where you get them.  This is my first time trying these out and surprisingly, the colors were very vibrant.  I noticed that it does give a chalky finish once the paint dries.  If you rub your fingers across it, it rubs off on your fingers a little.  So you might want to use some type of fixative on it if you’d like.  For me, this was going inside a shaker, so it didn’t bother me but in the future, I might add some fixative.  I out together my shaker card and put some paper cut sequins, stars and hearts out of several dies and also added some iridescent glitter inside.  I didn’t use any foam adhesive today, instead I made the dimension using card stocks.  I do have a Full video tutorial on this on my Youtube if you like to check that out.  Thank you so much for visiting and Please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  Thanks so much and Mahalo:)
