Stampendous Virtual Catalog Party - Day 1 - A Shaker!

Stampendous! is celebrating the July Catalog with a Virtual Catalog Party for their retailers! Each day a new product will be featured and there will be a video and other artwork spotlighting it. Be sure to check Stampendous!' blog throughout the week so you don't miss anything! Here's a link to the participating retailers.

Today's spotlight shines on the fun and fabulous Dome Jar Shaker Die Set, which is ever so versatile. Here's what the website says about this set. 
"16 dies let you create a snow-globe style dome, a bubblegum machine, or a canning jar, plus they can all be used with the newest member of the WindowRama family, a darling vertical card that fits in an A2 envelope when folded flat. Perfect for shaker cards, window cards, and more. Our July 2020 release contains tons of clear, cling rubber, and wood mounted stamps that coordinate perfectly with this set."
 I've used the Dome Jar Shaker Die Set with the new Gumball Greetings Perfectly Clear Stamp Set to create a shaker card that stands up on its own, but can fold flat for mailing!

  1. Using the base die from the Dome Jar Shaker Die Set, cut green Bling cardstock twice to create the front and the back of the card.
  2. On one of the two panels, use the two score lines and fold both sides backward to form the front of the card.
  3. On the other panel, use the two score lines and fold both cards forward to form the back of the card.
  4. Position one of the two Dome dies in the center of front panel of the card, secure with tape, and run the panel through the die-cut machine.
  5. Remove the dome-shaped die-cut and retain for another use.
  6. Use the base and dome top die to cut copper cardstock.
  7. Use the scored semi-circle die and the handle die to cut silver cardstock.
  8. Use the other semi-circle die to cut the black cardstock to form the hole under the flap where the gumball would appear. Not shown above. Oopsy.
  9. Fold the scored semi-circle along the score line and adhere to copper base using strong glue or red liner tape.
  10. Use a brad to adhere the silver twisting gizmo thingy die-cut to the copper base.
  11. Add Washi Tape to the bottom of the card front panel and secure in the back.
  12. Adhere the copper die-cuts to the card front as shown.
  13. Flip the card front, add adhesive around the window, and adhere the acetate. See Image A below, which will show the assembled card front.
  14. I wanted to try layering cardstock instead of using foam tape so that perhaps the shaker contents would act appropriately and not stick where I didn't want them. See Image B below.
  15. Use Memento ink to stamp the gumball image onto white cardstock.
  16. Color with Copic markers, then use one of the two rounded rectangle dies from the set to cut the image panel. See Image C below.
  17. Using the circle die, cut scraps of yellow cardstock, then add shading with Copic markers and white accents with the white gel pen.
  18. Use Memento ink to stamp the sentiments onto pink cardstock scraps and cut with the heart die.
  19. Secure three hearts to the edges of the dome on the inside of the card with red liner tape.
  20. Add the other hearts and the circles to the well formed by the black cardstock.
  21. Seal the aperture with the image panel.
  22. Adhere the back of the card to front of the card.
