Hi there crafty friends! Today I’m sharing two more cards using Queen & Company’s latest hit, Halloween Hooplah Shaker Kit. (You can find my two previously posted Halloween shaker cards here.) There are so many fun elements to this kit. My favorites are the patterned paper and the teeny tiny toppings – candy corn, eyes, spider webs, stars… As my daughter would say, it’s “chill.”
On my first card, I just had to use those tiny candy corn toppings, so I used the candy corn foam shaker shape with the candy corn dies. A wonderful element to this kit is the additional candy corn die pieces, making it super easy to cut the yellow and orange parts of the candy.
Once the sentiment was stamped and the shaker was in place, I adhered the panel to one of my favorite prints from the coordinating patterned paper then stitched a zig-zag border around the edges. I added a few “escaped” candy corns outside of the shaker for a bit more interest.
Next I used the cute pumpkin shaker and die elements. When adhering the pumpkin outline next to the pumpkin shaker, I nipped away the part of the outline that would have fallen behind the shaker. Doing so allows the shaker pumpkin to lay flat without any raised areas inside the shaker border.
Beneath the stem on the shaker pumpkin, I placed a piece of foam cut from the negative pieces of the pumpkin foam outline. I always save those pieces just for this purpose. It ensures that the popped up parts are the exact same height as the shaker.
The curly stem was created by cutting a thin strip of yellow patterned paper then wrapping tightly around a round toothpick. Once wrapped, I slid the toothpick away, trimmed to the desired length and adhered the piece beneath the stem using Scrap Happy Sheer Glue.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
