For my first project, I created a trio of smaller sized shaker cards featuring the new Hamster Family Stamp Set. I combined this set with the new Wooden Frame Die Set. To start, I first diecut 3 wooden frames from white card stock using the smaller of the two rectangles included in the Wooden Frame Die Set. I then stamped my sweet little hamsters onto a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I colored my images with Copic alcohol markers and used the coordinating Hamster Family Die Set to cut them out. Next, I trimmed three pieces of smooth white card stock to 3″ x 4″ and blended them with Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks. I simply fussy cut a snow slope from white card stock to use as a mask when blending my sky. Next, I added my sentiments and a few snowflakes from the Cozy Holiday Sentiments Stamp Set.
Once my background pieces were finished, I then trimmed them down to slightly smaller than the white wooden frame (2 7/8″ x 3 7/8″) and adhered them to a teal card base of 3″ x 4″. I adhered some clear acetate behind each window frame, added some chunky white glitter to each card as my shaker embellishment (to resemble snow), and used some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape to attach each frame to my card base. Super fun and easy!
For my second project, I used the larger rectangular frame and oval frame from the Wooden Frame Die Set and combined them with both the Hamster Family Stamp Set as well as the gorgeous Holiday Stripes Die. I diecut this striped background from a piece of red carsick and adhered it with liquid adhesive to a white A2 (4.25″ x 5.5″) card base. I then adhered my white frame on top of the perimeter of my striped background.
Next, I stamped my sentiment from the previously released Winter Hamsters Stamp Set onto the bottom portion of my frame. I added an oval frame (cut from red card stock) to the center of my card to which I adhered my hamster with 3D Foam Adhesive Tape for added dimension.
