Shaking up Smiles with Halloween Shaker Cards

Shaking up Smiles with Halloween Shaker Cards - Authentique, Creative Embellishments and Buttons Galore

Halloween is almost here.  Are you ready?  I'm ready.  Ok truth be told, I was ready but I ate the bag of candy I bought, HOWEVER I am all set with my Halloween cards AND they have been mailed.

Today my designed feature products from Authentique Paper, Creative Embellishments Chipboard and shaker mix and 3D Button finishing accents from Buttons Galore.  

Let's talk shaker cards and the amazing original shaker designs available at Creative Embellishments for holiday projects and general purpose crafting.  The Halloween shakers have my heart I think.  The cards today feature  the Creative Embellishments - Spider Web Shaker  and the Creative Embellishments Chipboard - Witch Hat Shaker

The cards feature Authentique's spooky fabulous collection, Masquerade, with the hauntingly classic Halloween colors and darling ephemera.  

 Authentique Paper - Masquerade Collection - 12 x 12 Paper Pad
Authentique Paper - Masquerade Collection - 12 x 12 Double Sided Paper - Number Seven
Authentique Paper - Masquerade Collection - 12 x 12 Double Sided Paper - Number Three


The Authentique's Masquerade - Number Seven (ephemera sheet) was the inspiration for the witch hat shaker card.  It's so dog gone darling it brings me back to being a little girl and scooting around with a broom pretending to ride it to the moon. 

I also happen to adore the Witch Hat chipboard Shaker  design from Creative Embellishments so it was a great combo.  I painted the chipboard with painted black and filled with Buttons Galore  Shaker Mix- Haunted House Sequin Tin.  

 3D bat buttons add the finishing touches here.  There are two different 3D Bat buttons used - Buttons Galore 3D Bat Buttons and Buttons Galore 3D Buttons- Bats .

The second card for the day is the sweet trick or treat spider web shaker card.    The Spider Web shaker was painted with a creamy white acrylic paint and filled with Buttons Galore Sparkletz Shaker Mix -called "Boo".  

The card was topped with a creepy 3D bat and 3D Spider Buttons from Buttons Galore.


Here's  the Sparkletz shaker mix that was used as well as the 3D bat buttons and spider buttons from Buttons Galore.  They make fabulous project toppers.
