Hummingbird Shaker Card - All Dies

Hello, everyone!  Before I get started, I would like to welcome two new followers - Swissie and Bunny - thank you for joining me!  Today I made a hummingbird shaker card using all dies, no stamps!


We have hummingbirds at our feeder again this summer and they always inspire me to make some hummingbird cards!  Have you heard of Gina Marie Designs?  If you're on a tight budget like me, you will definitely want to check out her shop, called Scrapbook Outlet.  Her prices are fabulous, and I have been super impressed with her customer service. The dies cut beautifully! I am not affiliated with Gina Marie, but I have become a big fan! On my card I have used several of my new Gina Marie Designs dies:


I die-cut black craft foam to layer behind the hummingbird and sentiment to add some dimension. The frame is cut from gold mirror cardstock. The patterned paper is from ColorBok and I splattered it with black watercolour paint.  I made my own sequin mix for inside the shaker and added some sequins to the card.

Hi my dear friend, I'm so glad to see that you have founded a bit of time for yourself and craft! Your shaker card is adorable, with the hummingbird silouette and the splatters!! Love the touch of pink with the flower sequins that matches with these inside the window, this colour seems always to me as your own personal touch... Love also very much the gold frame with its scallop edges and the stitch. This is a great die! Thanks for having make me know G.M's site, I think that I will ask her a quote for international shipping, the prices are really good and she has a lot of wonderful items!!
Send you and Brian a lot of hugs...
Good luck on the challenges!

Hi Kitty, Just saw your link on a comment at another blog, so easy to zip over to see what you're up to. I love hummingbirds, so I'm really liking this one. Love the shaker style, and the bling of that wonderful gold frame. Pretty card..I've been seeing the Gina Marie brand around Blogland, but it's nice to hear a trustworthy recommendation from someone who's used the products. TFS the link, and recommendation. Hope things are well with you. Hugs & happy wkend.
