VIDEO: Let's Shellabrate Perfect Pearls Shaker Card featuring Lawn Fawn

Hi all and welcome back for another fun project!  Before I get going on this card I wanted to let you all know that I GOT THE JOB!!!  So this is a follow up from my last video and blog post where I shared that I had interviewed for a position that I was super excited about.  It is in no small part due to the amazing good vibes that you all put out there for me that I was selected for this new adventure and I just wanted to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my little heart!  I'm super jazzed about this next step in my career with the Department of Forestry and I'll be sure to keep sharing as my start date approaches!


Moving on to the crafty goodness, I wanted to create a soft and sweet shaker card for this project.  I was inspired by the Lawnscaping Challenge that was going on with a Celebration theme and thought it was a cute pun to create a custom sentiment for the Year Six stamp set from Lawn Fawn using the little oyster image.  I took the gumball from the Sweet Smiles stamp set and turned it into some pearls to stuff my shaker with.


By mixing some Perfect Pearls with water and using that for my watercoloring I was able to create a gorgeous shine on my images that really helped with the illusion of pearls!  I love pearls - every time we go to DisneyWorld I pick a pearl in the Japan pavilion at Epcot and it is one of my favorite Disney memories so this card was near and dear to my heart!!


I just love how the pearls shake around with that Iridescent Mini Star confetti from Pretty Pink Posh!  So sweet!  For a full tutorial, check out the video!  As usual, supplies are listed below.  I've gotten dreadfully behind on my crafting so I'm really going to try and make more of an effort to post more consistently.  I have a few projects filmed just waiting to be edited so keep an eye out!!  Thanks again for all of the job interview support!  Happy Wednesday!  Bye!

  2. Oh so beautiful Tara!
    Congratulations on getting the job! I had to chuckle when you mentioned how much you love wearing pearls. My daughter LOVES wearing pearls as well. She happens to be a jewellery designer (no surprise there! LOL) and wears them all of the time! With jeans or a lovely dress. She has even convinced me to "wear them" any time as I had the old school mentality about pearls. haha
