Good morning Q&C fans!
Mary-Ann Maldonado here with two shaker cards for ya! I gotta tell you it is really fun to be given a die set and told go to town! There is so much versatilely to these sets. No rules, just plain creativity. I was assigned the Circle Shaped Shaker Set. The set includes dies and the coordinating Foam Shapes. 9 foam shapes to be exact and 3 different size circle dies. The Stamp Set that is included has several different themes. Making playing with this set, super easy and fun.
I decided to create a card based in the stamp sentiment: Something for the happy couple. I looked through my older die/stamp stash for something I could make two of, representing the happy couple. I found this fun Flamingo that came with a palm tree.
After layering the papers and creating the shaker, I filled it with coordinating Jewel and Pop Toppings, Iridescent Toppings and Pearlies. Adding a few stationary Metallic Bubbles in gold.

Metallic Bubbles- Gold

Toppings: Pops, Iridescent Bubbles, Pearlies and Jewels.
For my second card, I wanted to incorporate the Sunburst Die with the Circle Shaped Shaker. I first blended my base paper with a few colors representing the sun. After cutting out the Sunburst Die, I layered the Circle die on the Sunburst and re-cut with my Big Shot. Leaving a Circle background, showing the pretty blended colors.
I filled the Circle with various Confetti Toppings and Iridescent Bubbles. Tied a yellow Sparkle String bow and that was all!
Thank you for popping in today. I hope you are inspired to use other dies along with your newer ones. It is a fun technique.
