Mama Elephant "Tiny Heroes" Shaker Card and 30 Day Color Challenge Day #9

Happy Tuesday everyone!! Today was the last day of classes for the High School students and tomorrow starts exams. I am so happy that you would think that I was the student. My daughter certainly isn't since she is one of those students. Charlotte is studying away for her Chemistry final. A week from today starts our summer vacation and I cannot wait!

Today I thought I would share with you a card that I had SO MUCH FUN making. I have been coloring away with The Daily Marker's 30 Day Coloring Challenge.


This challenge has made me dig out some of my under loved and not used stamp sets (hanging my head in shame about this) to have fun coloring with. Today I am showcasing Mama Elephant's "Tiny Heroes" set. Can I tell you that I LOVE this set? I actually made THREE cards but will be sharing them later on in the week.


I started off this card by coloring and die cutting the stamped images. I then die cut a white panel using an MFT die and misted it with soft teal Prima Color Bloom and bubblegum Tattered Angels. After the front was dry, I die cut a hole in the center. I then die cut pink circles to insert in the middle.


I am not going to go through how to make a shaker card because there are plenty of tutorials out there and I am not an expert in the least. (In fact, I stay away from them because I am usually terrible at them!!) Anyway, I filled the shaker with turquoise, pink and star sequins to match the little heroes. Didn't this come out so cute?


This was just one of those days that I was on a roll with mojo!!!

I thank you for taking the time to stop by tonight. I know summers are so busy for people!!

I think these images and that background are perfect for a shaker card. I still haven't made any shaker cars, maybe I should try sometime.
