One Little Piggy Watches HSN Craft Day.......

This week's blog theme is 'Animals'.  I was going through my stamps and ran across this Piggy Bank 2 Stamp from the Stamps of Life.  I thought a ha!  It's animal week.  So I pulled out my Fuse tool and created a shaker card.

Here are the cards:



On this card I used foam tape behind the top layer to prop up the front of the card from the card base allowing the sequins to move around when you shake the card.  I used Stazon ink, but it didn't 'stick' to the acetate.  Bummer - right.



I must say this one is my favorite.  I went ahead and used Stazon ink on this one, but followed up with my Sharpie to clean up the lines.  I entered this card into the challenge at Your Next Stamp Blog.


Here are the products I used to create these shaker cards.

Thank you for stopping by the blog today.  Tune in tomorrow for a new theme - embossing.

Have a great day and be inspired.

Romans 11:33  Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!  How unsearchable his judgements, and his paths beyond tracing out!

Please take a moment to pray for the leaders of our nations.  That they look to a higher power for guidance and wisdom.  And that they consider the good of all nations in the decisions they make.
