My Very First Shaker Cards Share (Featuring YourNextStamp)

Goodmorning lovlies!
I have been busy crafting lots of cutness and I wanted to share two cards that I made! I created my very first shaker cards and I'm in love with them. I can totally see myself becoming shaker card addicted! I created both of these cards using stamps from another one of my favourite stamp companies Your Next Stamp. As many of you know, this company is a Canadian based company, which makes me love them even more. They have the cutest stamps and I have been loving all of their releases! I will include the link below for their site, definitely sign up for their emails because they often share coupon codes. I have had a wonderful experience with their company and will definitely be buying lots of stamps from them in the future.
So here is my first card that I created! I made this card using the stamp set Bunny In The River. I just love the sweet little critters on this set. I copic coloured this image and paper pieced the sweet umbrella and little ribbon. I used wink of stella on the ribbon, which just added a sweet little shimmer of glitter. I used Doodlebug twine in the swimming pool (blue) colour. I created the circle using my 21/2" circle punch and filled it with tons of sequins. I will share how I created this shaker in an upcoming post. But for now I just wanted to share my card.
Here is a picture of the Copic colours that I used!! To colour up the sweet little bunny I used C2 and C4. This is my favourite grey colour combo, these colours blend so nicely. The little chick was coloured using Y21 and Y35 for his body and YR02 and YR04 for his little beak. The water was coloured using B00 and B12. I also used R20 to colour in the little critters cheeks and gave them little dots with my white gel pen.
Here is my second shaker card that I created! I just love how this one looks so cute and colourful. I made this card using the stamp set Plant Some Kindness and Oh Deer. I have to say of all of my stamp sets that have deers on them, this one is my absolute favourite. That deer was sooo fun to colour and he is a perfect size. I just love the sweet little hearts on his bum and the little flower behind his ear. Such a sweet image, a keeper for sure! I copic coloured the flowers and deers and I used Pretty Pink Posh sequins for the shaker pocket. The twine that I used is the bubblegum (pink) by Doodlebug. The paper that I used for this card was from the Doodlebug Hello Spring paper pad. This card is the perfect thinking of you card! :)
Here is a picture of the Copic colours that I used! To colour up the sweet deer I used E53 and E55 for the light coloured portion. For the darker part of the deer I used E57 and E59. These colours are another favourite of mine. I used R20 for the deers cheeks as well as adding alittle white dot with my gel pen. Those sweet little flowers were so fun to colour up. I actually cut off the stem portion of the stamp and just wanted the little flower. I used FY1 to colour the inside of the flowers and RV02 and V06 for the petals. The little butterfly was coloured using FV2 and V06. I hope you enjoyed this little share of my latest card creations. Please leave me comments, I love hearing from you.
