Our ballerina friend, Anna, visited us in the Clubhouse this week! We were so excited, because since she learned about stamping last summer, her mom has sent me pictures and videos of Anna watching my Youtube videos.
Anna has dabbled a bit into stamping and knows the basics, so I took the chance to have some fun and teach her some techniques!
I wanted to teach her how to make a Shaker Card, which is pretty easy when you break it down!
Die cut a circle in a solid color (here I used white), die cut a clear acetate sheet the same size circle, then die cut a frame with the same size circle with the next smallest size circle cut out of the center, creating a frame.
Adhere the frame to the acetate and on the back side add thin dimensional tape. It’s kinda like building a fence to keep your dogs in…you don’t want any open spaces to let the sequins out!
Add sequins and the backing and BAM! You’ve got a shaker element!
I’m completely smitten with this gumball machine look with ice cream and popsicles inside!

Then next technique was Clear Emboss Resist. We stamped the Doodle Garden Background stamp on white cardstock in Clear Embossing Powder, then blend ink over the top. The Embossed image will resist the ink and stay white! I LOVE this technique!
A simple doily die cut with the center cut out created a great back drop for the Hello die which we embossed with the Blue Confetti Trio Embossing Powder.
I love that my girls’ friends are interested in paper crafting…they are the next generation!
