Prickly Before Coffee Shaker Card + Giveaway

Coffee Lover's Summer Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello and Happy Summer! To kick off the summer, I'm sharing a coffee themed shaker card I created using the brand new Cuppa Cactus stamp and die set from Newton's Nook Designs.

I always love a good coffee themed card and combing coffee and cacti with a shaker card seems like a perfect combination to me! Wouldn't you agree?

I stamped the adorable cactus onto watercolor and then colored the image using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. To create the shaker, I die cut the rectangle stitched frame 5 times from white cardstock and then glued the layers together using Therm O Web Mixed Media Liquid Adhesive. The shaker is filled with a mix of sequins and seed beads. You can find a detailed supply list at the bottom of this post.

  2. What a super fun card! Love the stamps and the prickly ... ehm punny sentiments!
    I love spending more time outside in the summer, even if it's in the shade in front of the house. Also love eating out. I live in a touristic area (Crete, Greece), so some of our favourite tavernas are only opened in the tourist season.
