Mama Elephant Stamp Highlights: Love Quotes

Hello, hello, hello!  It's day 3 of the Mama Elephant December release highlights and today I'm highlighting a set I used for the stampeded, Love Quotes!  



Did I mention that this set has a coordinating die set for the birds and the speech bubble?  The speech bubble die was just perfect for making a shaker!  [Thanks to my pal Tessa Wise for the fabulous Teresa Collins sequins and paper by the way:)  I love those oversized sequins!]       


To make the shaker, I got out my Embellished Tag die.  It just so happens to be a perfect size for the foundation of my shaker.  The foundation is just what I call the foam part (I use play foam sheets) that holds the sequins.  When you are building a shaker, the aperture of the foundation piece needs to be slightly bigger than the shaker die cut.  Big enough so you can't see it through the shaker aperture, but not too big that the fillers get lost.  Here's a look at what I'm talking about...


On the front of my card, the little birdie is colored with Copics and I added the music note from Good Times.  The background panels are made with both of the Femme Frames dies.  


Thanks for stopping by today!  The stamp highlights will continue tomorrow, but today please be sure to visit these gals to see what they've done with this sweet set.  You're going to love them!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
