Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

Holiday Sparkle Card

Of course, O'Tannenbaum is a perfect pair with the Sparkle & Shine products as well as the new Shaker Shapes dies!

Tree closeup

I stamped the tree inside the shaker using a variety of inks to make it look more realistic.  The Aqua Mist sparkles were added using an image from Sparkle & Shine Holiday Additions set, followed by a 2-way glue pen and a little bit of glitter.

Shaken

The shaker itself is created with the Shaker Shapes: Circle die collection, topped with an Aqua Mist frame.  I filled the shaker with die-cut vellum stars (from the Shaker Shapes: Star die collection).  I also added a bit of Fake Sugar from the original Shakers & Sprinkles kit.

Sparkle

"Sparkle" was die-cut from white cardstock and then coated with Prisma Glitter, perfect for the theme of the card!

Border

I added a small border fo the diagonal stripes paper from the Sparkle & Shine Holiday Pad at the bottom of the card.

Down

This would definitely make a beautiful tag design too!

Time to Shine Card

The new Sparkle & Shine products as well as the Shaker Shapes dies can be used for things other than shaker cards!  They are all gorgeous on their own!

Shine

I used the Shaker Shapes: Star die to cut into my Soft Stone card front and left everything intact on my die platform while carefully removing the die.  I then placed the "Shine" die on top of that and ran it through my machine a second time.  Being careful to reserve all the pieces, I adhered all of them, including a white version of the word, onto my white card front.

Sentiment

This small Summer Sunrise banner was stamped with a sentiment from Sparkle & Shine in Orange Zest ink.

Sequins

I created some custom sequins using the new sequins die and Raspberry Shimmer cardstock.  I also cut some stars (using the Shaker Shapes: Circle dies) from Summer Sunrise bitty dot paper and tiny stars (Shaker Shapes: Star) from Orange Zest.  The tiny stars were coated with Glossy Accents.

Down

I also used a white gel pen and ruler to add a frame around my card front.  Here's a few quick tips on drawing your own frames.  Measure and mark each of the four corners with a small dot.  Then connect the dots by placing the ruler along the OUTSIDE of your line, rather than what will be the interior of your line/frame.  By turning the card and keeping your ruler on the outside of your line, you reduce the chances of smudging.  Keep the pen nice and vertical and be sure to "get it going" first on a piece of scratch paper.  I hope this helps some of you!

Christmas in the City Card

Of course the Shaker Shapes can be paired up with SO many previously released sets!  I thought it would be fun to make a little something with City Scene.

City

I stamped the buildings and trees for the interior of the frame and then added the taxi cab with a bit of foam tape.  I glittered a strip of Soft Stone cardstockto add as the "street".  I stamped the snowfall around the buildings in Soft Stone ink and then added some additional glitter.

Shaker

The shaker is filled with die-cut confetti and snowflakes (included in the Shaker Shapes: Snow Globe die collection) in Aqua Mist and New Leaf.  I also added a few teal seed beads.

Sentiments

The label included in the Snow Globe die set was cut from the top snow globe layer.  I backed it with white cardstock that was stamped with a sentiment from City Scene Holiday Sentiments set.  "Christmas" was die-cut from New Leaf cardstock using the new Wet Paint Holiday dies.  What other sets from your stash are you dreaming of pairing up with one of the Shaker Shapes dies?
