Sending Hugs Shaker Cards (from laminating pouches)

 Hello and welcome back. It’s Karen here today and I’ve got a couple of shaker cards to share with you today made with the sweet, new Sending Hugs stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs. I’ve made both my cards into Christmas cards but this stamp set is so versatile and could be used year round to send a paper hug, especially during these difficult times!  I’ve made both my shaker fronts from laminated pouches and I have a video for you if you want to see how I made them.  

PLEASE CLICK HERE to watch the video.



This is my first card and I have to say I love that sentiment! I actually made this into a Christmas card which I think will be totally appropriate this year as we all stay socially distanced (I added  a Christmas sentiment inside).  I’ve listed the copic marker colours I used down below.  The Double Stitch Rectangle Frame die is from Poppy Stamps and the little silver bush is die cut from the Sizzix Holiday Greens, mini die set. The shaker front is made from a laminating pouch with MFT’s Christmas Background stamp done in white ink. 



This is my second card, and although it’s not a shaker card, there is some dimension to it as some of the trees are attached to the frame and sit off the background.  I added some Stampendous Shaved Ice flakes to a laminating pouch to just cover the outside edges of my card front, so it gives it a slightly frosty look.  The sentiment is the Snowy Merry Christmas die from Poppy Stamps and I’ve added some Nuvo Glitter Accents in Fresh Snowfall on the tops of the letters.  

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great day! 

Copic Markers used:

Snowman - BG0000, C1, C0, Y38, YR16, B66, B63, BG57, BG18

Rabbit - W3, W2, W1, E40, C0, R20, R00, RV55, RV17

Hello, Margreet here.
I made this card with Make a Wish Mouse Blowing out Birthday Cake Candle for Gerda Steiner Designs.

The base card has a square passepartout.
I embossed the cardstock before using distress inks Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers. 
The mouse and cake are colored with copics and fussy cut.
The word Happy is stamped with Versamark and then I put Distress embossin...
