How To Use Foam and Acetate Sheets to Make Shakers

How To Use Foam and Acetate Sheets to Make Shakers 0

Hi Queen and Co fans! 
Rebecca here with a couple of new shaker cards made with the Foam and Acetate refill sheets. There are a couple of extra steps that you need to take if you are making a shaker from the sheets versus from a Queen and Co Shaker Card Kit.
For example, you have to die cut the foam yourself. Any of the Queen and Co Foam Front Dies perfectly create card sized shakers.
You will also need to cut your own card base and provide your own envelope.
But these extra steps only take a few minutes and, with the refill sheets, you are able to create any shaker that you have the die to create.
Check out this quick video where I show all the steps to create a shaker card using a Foam Front Die and the refill sheets.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Multiple Shakers - One Layout!

Multiple Shakers - One Layout! 0

Good morning!

Mary-Ann Maldonado here with a fun summery layout using two foam front shaker sets.  I also used almost every color bling I had for this layout too!  You are supposed to when you have a rainbow, right? 

I started by choosing four photos of a pool day and printed them to size.  Then I created the sunburst shaker and applied them both to the center of the layout.    

I collected all the color bling I had to apply at the bottom and top of the page.

It seemed a little empty, so clouds above the sun was the perfect choice!  I used varying colors to help them pop as well.  I couple white Pom added just a little fluffiness. 

So, I actually used three die cuts and two foam shakers.  I think it is fun to mix and match.  You should try it!

Cloud Pop Up Die, Sunburst Shaker Set, Windows Foam Front Shaker Kit, Picture Perfect 6x6 pad, Simple Stripes 6x6 pad, Flirty Florals 6x6 pad, Delightful Dots 6x6 pad, orange Iridescent Pearls, Green, orange and red Sparklers, blue, purple, yellow, pink, red, green Rivets, blue Pinwheels, turquoise Twinkle Drops, yellow Lollies, white Pom Flowers, Toppings: Tiny Bubbles, Diamonds, Pops, and Bright Pearlies

Different Ways to Use Toppings!

Hi there! 
Laurie Schmidlin here and I've got a couple of cards featuring different ways to use Queen & Co's Toppings!

One of my favorite things when creating, is to add special little details.  They just seem to give cards that little something extra!  Queen & Co's Toppings and smaller flowers are the perfect embellishments for this!

For my first card, I created a heart shaker using items from the Heart Throb Kit.  I filled the heart with blue and green Tiny Bubbles (from the Tiny Bubbles Toppings Set).  The patterned paper on the heart shaker is from the Simple Stripes 6 x 6 Paper Pad.  For embellishment, I adhered little blue stars from the Fimo Fun Toppings Set.

For my next card, I used some Sunflowers and Posies to add color embellishments to my jungle themed card.  I started by die cutting the Foam Front Die - Window (one of my favorite card front dies) and added it to a piece of patterned paper from the Pretty Presents 6 x 6 Paper Pad.  I tucked in stamped and die cut images and then added a few yellow posies (from the Baby Bling Book -Posies) and Orange Sunflowers.
