Boo to You Candy Corn Inspired Shaker Card with Pretty Pink Posh

Thursday, September 7, 2023

I am back with a new video using Pretty Pink Posh Halloween products to create a shaker card inspired by the Candy Corn Glass Shaker Beads! I think the orange, yellow and white (with some black) are the iconic Halloween colors and I wanted to use some of my favorite images from the latest release on this card, too. I started with die cutting my background with the largest Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die and the pumpkin from the Boo To You Coordinating Dies to create my shaker window.

To use the emboss resist technique, I stenciled on my spider web layer of the Layered Spider Webs Stencils with embossing ink and used clear embossing powder on the wonky rectangle. I also added the pumpkin stamp from the Boo To You Stamp Set with black ink and clear embossing powder to the pumpkin cut out. Now that the embossing is done, I added inks in the color scheme of a candy corn! I started with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide on the bottom right, then blended into Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide and finally a little touch of Picket Fence Distress Ink.

I buffed off the ink from the embossing powder and then added a little bit white gold metallic watercolor splatter. The final touch of stenciling is adding in the spiders to my wonky rectangle with the second stencil from the Layered Spider Webs Stencils with a black stencil paste.

While my spiders are drying, I moved on to die cutting some of my favorite images from the Halloween Mug Additions Dies out of scrap cardstock in kraft, yellow, orange, white and black. I added a little ink to my white pumpkin and yellow hat belt, but I assembled them together with such ease and they are so cute! I also stamped my Boo To You Stamp Set sentiment with embossing ink and white embossing powder onto black cardstock.

Once my background was dry, I assembled my shaker together and added the Candy Corn Glass Shaker Beads and you can see each detailed step in my video today. The pumpkin was adhered to a spider web patterned paper, I created my well around the pumpkin, added the Candy Corn Glass Shaker Beads and closed it with the spider web wonky rectangle panel that also has acetate. Next I added my die cut images and sentiment around the shaker window as well as some yellow clay confetti circles from the Clay Confetti Wheel #4 for some little, final touches. I hope you enjoy this shaker card and you’re having so much fun with the latest release!
