Ocean Shaker

Hi Crafty Friends,
I gave a summer shaker for you today featuring this cute little sea creature from Ink N' Splatter's Seas Every Moment Stamp set. I stenciled the background with Altenew's Scallop Stencil and made a fun shape for the shaker bits.

  1. i really like how you put this together with the different shapes, the "sand", everything. My favorite sea creature would have to be whales. I don't know which I like best. We went on a whale watching boat trip in Alaska in a little boat with just the captain, and the whales got so close we were able to see down their blow holes. It was amazing. I don't remember which type it was, but it was COOL. The blow hole had 2 chambers...I didn't know that.

  2. Really cute shaker card! I love the way you created the background with the scallop stencil.
    I like dolphins!

    1. Forgot to put my name in there... again! Darn Google!

  4. Awww!! Those tiny shaker dolphins take the cake in this adorable card! I’m loving the extra photo you included to show how the your card used cool blues to chill off the heat of the hot summer: exactly how it asked!! I’m one of those who absolutely love interactive cards like this; perfect!!

  10. Cute card, Meghan! That little whale is adorable! Clever layering to get the shaker elements behind everything! Thank you for sharing your awesome creativity with us at Double Trouble for our "relaxation" challenge! -Donna

  11. Love the interpretation of the sun and sand in your adorable little whale scene created in the frame cut, creative and fun. And it probably wasn't easy getting all those layers under the shaker and still have the sprinkles on top of each of the patterns... great job. Thanks for sharing is us at Double Trouble and The Crafter's Cafe.
