Shape Shakers: How to create quick and easy Shaker cards

The new Shape Shakers from Hampton Art & Jillibean Soup have been hitting the stores and we've heard you LOVE them! We do to!!!

If you haven't seen them yet, they are a collection that has die-cut cards, shaker containers, stamps, dies and sequins. These components make creating shakers so EASY!

I've broken down how to use the different elements of the collection into pictures. At the end, they are all pulled together into a short video.

STEP 1: Stamp on the die-cut card base.

STEP 2: Fill the Shaker with Sequins (or other items)


STEP 3: Remove the paper backing to expose the adhesive on the shaker.


STEP 4: Open the card and drop the shaker into the die-cut opening of the card.


STEP 5: Close the card.


STEP 6: Press & Rub the back of the card to make sure the shaker is attached.

STEP 7: Open the card to see the shaker attached to the inside of the card.

STEP 8: Close the card and finish embellishing the front.
You are READY TO SHAKE!!!


Want to see the steps a bit quicker? Click play on the video below. :)



I can't wait to see what you guys create with them!

Have a great weekend!

Hello Love Bug card by designer Patty Folchert

Welcome to Valentine season! Here is a cute card using some brand new Jillibean Soup and Hampton Art tags, stamps and papers.

Hello Love Bug card by Patty Folchert

The card base is a 5” x 7” white card stock. Then I chose the blue, pink and red patterned papers to coordinate with the denim tag and red stamped ladybug and sentiment. The border strips were cut in different heights some 3/4 “ and some 1” and all 4.5” long. I used the white brick paper as a mat and stitched the borders for added texture. Then I zigzag stitched the denim tag across the bottom in white thread. I adhered the white brick mat to the card front.


Next I stamped the ladybug and sentiment onto white cardstock in red ink and cut out as shown. The fussy cut lady bug was then added with foam dot to the denim tag. I cut the Love Bug sentiment out in shape of a square and added the red mat then adhered with a foam dot. The hello word bubble was added from the pea pods set of Summer Red Raspberry Soup with foam dots as shown. Next I tied a red satin ribbon bow and adhered with glue dot to the top of the tag.
A handmade valentine is the final result, sure to bring a smile to your chosen Love Bug.

Valentine Wishes,
Patty Folchert
