Bitty Bears Birthday Shaker | MFT | Copic Coloring

Has it really been since July since I have blogged??!!  Gosh!!  Well, for those that read my blog - my apologies!

To make up for it, today I am sharing a birthday shaker card featuring the Bitty Bears set from My Favorite Things.  This set is way too cute, and so happy I have it in my collection.  And, the best part is you can create multiple cards with it for different occasions!!

To start, I stamped out the images I wanted to use with my card onto a piece of smooth white card stock ( my favorite is the PTI Stampers Select White) and I used Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink.  Then, I colored in my bears with Copic Markers using E43, E44 and E13 for the body. For the present, balloon and cupcake, I used R39, RV25, RV29, V05, V06 and V09.  Once colored, I used the coordinating dies to die cut them out.  I set them aside, and worked on the background of my card.

I inked up a piece of white card stock using Picked Raspberry, Candied Apple and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inks.  I love doing ink blending with these inks!  So much easier than traditional distress inks.  Once I was happy with my result, I used my Distress Sprayer to get some water droplets and the distressed look.

Then, I worked on the shaker portion of my card by die cutting a piece of white card stock with the Grid Background die from Mama Elephant.  I went ahead and stamped out my sentiments from the same Bitty Bears set directly onto my Grid die cut panel.  These sentiments fit perfectly!!  Then, I cut down two strips of acetate and adhered the strips on the back of the panel on the ends, and left the middle without acetate.  I added a bunch of foam adhesive, and then added some seed beads in each of the squares on the ends.  I carefully removed the paper backs of the foam adhesive, and added my ink blended panel, and viola!  I have my shaker!

All there was left to do was to add my bears in the middle and I also used foam tape to do this.  To complete the card, I added this whole shaker panel to an A2 Pure Poppy card base..and shake...shake...shake!
So fun!!  I also have a video tutorial if you wanted to see how this one came together!!

I hope not to be absent from my blog this long again!  Thank you all for taking time out of your day to visit me!
