Top Dog Die Shaker Blog Hop!

Oh you picked another great day for a visit! Top Dog Dies is having a shaker blog hop!  If you're following along with the hop you should have reached me from Nicki Sheck's blog.  If you want to start from the beginning you can get all the details here at the Top Dog Dies blog!
I am totally crazy about a shaker card!  Something about all that shiny bling just makes me silly!


I used the Top Dog Dies Feather Dies set to cut holes in the top panel of my card.  To help me decide where to cut the dies I cut some of the feathers and arranged them first.   Then I snapped a picture with my cell phone for a quick reference.
Top Dog Dies Feathers Set
There are three dies in the feather set, and you can run all three at the same time.  You can tape the dies down with washi but sometimes that leaves an impression of where the washi was - so I usually put a glue dot inside the die to hold it in place.
I finally got my hands on a fuser tool - so I just filled a photo photo sleeve with sequins, sealed it and adhered it to my card stock base behind the front panel. 
Ready to see more fabulous shaker cards made with Top Dog Dies?  Your next stop is my talented friend Vickie Zimmer!

This simply goregous card blew me away. From the feathers, the colours, the sequins and the awesome sentiment this card is outstanding. Thanks for all the great tips about holding down the dies and positioning them. I never would have thought to take a quick snapshot of the mask layout and then replicate it. Appreciated!

I like the way you filled up your die space. Some people only put in a few sequins, but filling up the space looks so much better.

loulou said...

Jeanne your shaker is absolutely stunning. Delicious colours. I think I'm going to have to get a fuse tool after seeing how easy shakers are created with it.
