JustRite Shaker Card

Hello Blog Land Friends!

Congratulations to Dodie Martin aka Camera Girl on SCS for winning last months very generous Dolce Blog Candy!!! All she had to do to win was go to the Dolce blog and leave some comments on the Design Team's Cards! So don't forget to stop by and check out the fabulous creations my talented team mates have been creating!

This month on the Dolce Blog is featuring JustRite Stamps I have a shaker card to share with you today made with the JustRite BirdHouses Stamp Set that I received from Sandra and Betsy over at Dolce Stamps and Cards.

I knew right away that I would want to make a shaker card with this birdhouse.
I had never used Justrite Stamps before. I love how interchangeable they are. I was thrilled, the Tag Making Kit came with the stamps and the Spellbinder tags!! This Shaker Card was such fun to make! I used the smallest Large Scallop Oval from Spellbinders as a cloud template and sponged the background with Ranger's Tumbled Glass Distress Ink   I made some hand rolled roses and sponged them with Ranger's Spun Sugar Distress Ink. The Birdhouse is colored with copics and is popped up for added dimension. I stamped the image again and cut the leaves out for the roses. Since I store my stamps with out their packaging, I used the plastic packaging to cut the window for the shaker card, using the Mega Ovals. Adding some bird seed  goodies in between the panels. For a little extra pizazz I added Stardust Stickles to the wings of the dragonfly and the centers of the roses. I quite enjoyed using these Justrite Stamps!!
