Shaking up Some Positivi-Tea

Shaking up Some Positivi-Tea

Hi everyone and welcome!  It’s Karen here today and I’ve got a shaker card for you that features the new Gerda Steiner Designs stamp set called Positivi-Tea.  This is such a sweet stamp set and makes such an uplifting card that can be sent to anyone during these difficult times when we’re all trying to stay healthy and sane. 

This is the front of the card and as you can see, it’s got a shaker element to it. I’ve die cut the shaker frame several times from a Sunny Studios Frilly Frames Herringbone die, but any frame die would work here. I backed it with a purple pearl cardstock and filled it with some coordinating shaker elements. Since I wanted to have a fun inside element, I’ve only added the sentiment and this sweet bear to the front of the card. I coloured him with alcohol markers (listed below), and mounted him just at the side of the card. I white heat embossed the hearts on the cup and teapot from a small heart stamp I found in my stash. 


So for the inside fun, I’ve added the little mouse with his tea set, complete with a used tea bag! I coloured and fussy cut them out before adding them to the card.  I love that inside sentiment and I think it’s just such a nice, inspiring message to send anyone. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great day! 

Alcohol markers used:

Bear - Spectrum Noir in BG 7, BG 5, BG3. Copic markers in C1, C0, R00

Mouse - Copic C2, C1, C0, R00

Tea Set - Copic B66, B63

Tea Bag - Copic E25, E31, E53, Colourless blender 0.

It was sheer genius and the minute I saw it, I thought about using her technique with Gerda Steiner's pigeons. If you haven’t seen Jennifer’s video, here’s a link to it - Cards with Simple Movement.


Now, I know this is not your typical wedding card, but it is a fun...
