Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge #7 Botanicals For You Mother’s Day Shaker Card

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you. The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

So this is week 7 in our challenge and the sketch comes from the lovely Hannah from!

So for today’s sketch….

Today’s sketch caused a stir I can tell you, the ladies in the group were all saying “What???” but I knew straight away this sketch only meant one thing, Shaker card!!!! I also knew what stamp set I was going to use, the Botanicals For You Stamp Set from the Sale-a-Bration catalogueyou still have one month left to take advantage of the Sale-a-Bration promotion. I have gone in to more detail about the Sale-a-Bration promotion at the end of this post if you need to know more about how to bag these bargains.

For my card base I used Watermelon Wonder A4 Cardstock cut at 4 1/8 inches and scored at 5 7/8 inches.


I took a piece of Window Sheet cut to 4 1/8 inches x 5 7/8 inches and stamped the sentiment from the Botanicals For You Stamp Set in White Stazon Ink.


While I waited for that to dry I took a piece of the Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper cut to 4 1/8 inches x 5 7/8 inches and sponged on some Watermelon Wonder Classic Ink  on to the larger rose images on the paper.


I adhered my DSP to my card base. Taking another piece of Watermelon Wonder cardstock cut again at 4 1/8 inches x 5 7/8 inches I die cut out a frame with my Bigshot and the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits using the partial die cutting technique to get the right size of frame. I then adhered my window sheet piece using some Fast Fuse Adhesive. I popped on some Stampin Dimensionals all around my frame with no spaces so my sequins would not fall out.


I then placed some Sequins on my card front and popped on my frame. Using some more white stazon ink I used the small floral images from the stamp set in the corners of my frame and finally added some Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Pen to finish. I then used the Project Life Corner Punch to round off my corners.


I stamped another sentiment inside my card with white Stazon ink and another floral image and that finishes my card for this week’s sketch challenge.
