Toadstools Shaker Card | Stamps + Dies

Hi there! Lynda is here on the blog today with a gorgeous Autumnal shaker card created with our fantastic TOTALLY TOADSTOOLS stamps and new co-ordinating dies, and our BRANCH OUT stencil.

Autumn is such a beautiful season and my favourite to reflect in my crafting. The rich tones all around never fail to inspire me and get my creative juices flowing. Totally Toadstools from Visible Image is one of my go to stamp sets, as fungi also happens to be one of my favourite things, and now I am delighted to say that they have just released co-ordinating dies. What a game changer!  

As soon as I saw them my mind turned to the idea of using them to create a fun shaker card as I had recently purchased some lovely seasonal table confetti that I thought would be perfect inside. 

To begin I cut two pieces of card to the same size and used the largest die to cut an aperture from one of them.

Using a stamp platform I placed the aperture sheet over the full sheet and lay my toadstool stamp inside. 

I stamped the image inside the framed area and set aside. 

I then set to work on my scene, using Distress Ink to create a background around the aperture. 

I stamped the grasses stamp to create some depth. I also stamped and die cut them, along with two of the smaller toadstools and coloured. 

I used the recently released Branch Out stencil on the edge of my card. 

Once happy with my scene I created the shaker by adhering a sheet of acetate behind the aperture and using foam pads around the shape of it to create a ‘wall’ to hold my leaf confetti in place. I coloured the main image,lined the cards up and secured together with more foam tape. 

To finish I layered some leaves on the outside, along with the die cut elements. Some autumnal toned Flowersoft added more texture and dimension to the image. 

Visible Image have released more co ordinating dies for some of their most loved stamp sets, so do take a look. You will find lots of amazing inspiration over on their social media pages!
