I missed out on the latest Global Stampers blog hop as I have been unwell & busy with my girls while hubby was away for work. I thought I’d share with you instead the table gifts I made for my fellow Demos at a recent Stamp Camp I attended.
I was inspired by some charms made by Tiffany Almeida. I recreated them using the Magical Day stamp set and here’s how mine turned out…
Aren’t they the cutest?! The mini embroidery hoops in our 2018 Occasions catalogue are so versatile. I stamped the images using Basic Black Archival ink, then coloured them in using our Stampin’ Blends on the reverse side. I cut tiny strips of Whisper White Thick cardstock to seal up the hole at the top & inside of the hoops.
The images were then punched out and adhered to the hoops using our Fine-Tip Glue Pen. I filled the hoops to create a shaker, you can see below for individual fillings that match each image, then sealed off with another punched piece of Window Sheet.
The trick with these shaker charms is patience & lots of it! There is a lot of drying time involved, so if you want to recreate them be sure to plan ahead and allow yourself plenty of time. I wouldn’t rush it with heat setting either as the Window Sheets will warp.
Let’s have a look at each individual image & their fun shaker fillings. A tip before adding the filling, dust the inside of the hoop and window sheets with the Embossing Buddy to avoid static.
First up we have the Knight in the larger hoop…
I filled this up with the Gold Glitter Flakes, keeping it nice and simple 🙂
Next we have the Wizard, also in the larger hoop…
I stamped the ‘sparkle’ image a few times in White StazOn (retired) & coloured them in with the Stampin’ Blends & added them with a bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter.
Next up is the Dragon in the smaller hoop…
I stamped the ‘flame’ image a few times in Basic Black Archival & coloured them in with the Stampin’ Blends & added them with a bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter.
Next is the Unicorn, also in the smaller hoop…
The Unicorn also has a few of the ‘sparkle’ images with a bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter.
Last is the mermaid in the larger hoop & is my favourite piece…
It’s a little hard to see but I stamped the ‘seahorse’ & ‘bubble’ images a few times & coloured them in with the Stampin’ Blends. Then I added them with a bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter.
These shakers were so much fun to make & the ladies that received them loved them.
I hope you were inspired to create some cute shaker charms using these new embroidery hoops. Thanks for stopping by today.
Until next time, sending you lots of crafty hugs! 🙂
