Hello and welcome back crafty friends! I’m still celebrating the Waffle Flower April 2021 release with another project using the Spotlight Triangle Stencil! Let’s not waste any time and get right into it!
I began my project by cutting a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock to 4″ x 5.25″ and taping the stencil to the paper using masking tape. I chose a few PinkFresh Studio inks to use, which include Sparkling Rose, Apricot, Sunshine, Fresh Pear, Sky Blue, Lavender, Ballet Slipper and Ocean Breeze. I began inking the triangle in rainbow order until I had covered a good bit of my panel.
The white space on the card was bothering me for whatever reason, so to take care of that, I lightly ink blended Ballet Slipper over the entire panel. This still wasn’t tickling my fancy .. Do you ever have projects that don’t come together like they did in your head?! Gah .. so frustrating! I then took my stencil and ink blended Ocean Breeze over some of the triangles that I had already done. This was much better!
When I began this project, I really didn’t know what direction it was headed! I took the stencil again and applied some Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel Iridescent to some of the triangles. This ended up being tedious, because I could only do one triangle at a time. While that was drying, I cut a frame from black cardstock using the PinkFresh Studio Diagonal Stitched Rectangles, and die cut the Oversized Hope three times from black cardstock as well and adhered those together using Craft Tacky Glue.
After seeing the frame and sentiment on my panel, I decided to take a turn and make this into a fun shaker card. I applied Scor-Tape 1/8″ around my black frame and trimmed a piece of acetate just smaller than the frame and adhered those together. I then trimmed 3M Foam Tape to fit the frame and provide space for my shaker bits.
I stamped my sub-sentiment from the Oversized Hope stamp set in VersaMark ink on black cardstock and heat embossed that using Simon Says Stamp Detail White Embossing Powder, and trimmed it out using the Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Label Dies. I glued the Hope sentiment directly to my colored panel and placed foam tape bits on the smaller sentiment for support. I added my shaker bits and adhered the frame. That was then attached to my card base, which is Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock.
That does it for today! I hope you enjoyed this shaker card project, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! There’s still time to join the blog hop to celebrate this release! Check out my post from Monday or head to the Waffle Flower Blog for all the details!
