Camp Create Day 3: Spectacular Shakers

Hello All,

Welcome back to Carson's Creations and thanks for stopping by! This is my second post again because I have been following along with My Favorite Things Camp Create every day this week (just scroll down for my Paper Play Sketches post). I have been enjoying each day because I am actually learning a new tip or technique from every video. Today's skill for Day 3 was Spectacular Shakers.

When I first saw the Camp Create title I was a bit disappointed. I have created shaker cards before and was never quite happy with my final products. The sequins would always get stuck to the side of the window frame or the depth was too shallow and the sequins wouldn't move.  After I watched the video by Laurie I felt more confident that I could make a shaker that worked.

Using white craft foam is brilliant! Lining up the circle you cut from the cover on top of the foam was wonderful. The best tip was using the static bag around the inside of the window. The rest just fell into place. 

I used the MFT flamingo die and Tickled Pink stamp set. The sentiment is heat embossed in white powder.

Here is Wednesday's badge.

Looking forward to Camp Create ~ Day 4. I wonder what the craft will be?!?!

Until tomorrow,
