.Whale of a Time DSP Shaker Card

This fun Shaker Card shows off that cute Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper.  This collection of paper has some awesome sea life images.  It really makes you feel like you are right there in the water.  If you look closely, check out the sequins!  Some have the shape of shells and are very iridescent.  It not often that I make shaker cards, but do love the look and fun style.

Here are a couple helpful hints on how to first add your window sheet, then add adhesive strips around the window.  The window well contains your sequins or other items you may use to shake.  Remover the adhesive backing and add a piece of card stock to cover the well so it is easier to finish the card.  I hope this inspires you to make a Shaker card someday soon!  I plan to showcase this Whale of a Time DSP some more before the month ends.

This card was a sweet surprise of “Happy Mail” from my friend Betsy congratulating me on earning the Stampin’ Up! Maui Elite Incentive Trip this coming May.   In addition to the trip congrats, Betsy gave a shout out for being recognized at the Stampin’ Up! Leaders Summit recently held at the end of August as being a leader of courage.  Stampin’ Up!’s Leadership team recognized many Demonstrators throughout the event and it was an unexpected surprise.

It has taken courage to find ways to stay connected with my customers and team and overcome many challenges along the way.  Meeting via Zoom with my team has been a wonderful way to stay connected.  Seeing & hearing each other allowed me to encourage them to step outside of their comfort zone.  Five team members stepped up to create a video of a Make N’ Take to present at our Mini Catalog Extravaganza Team Event.  The Team Share & Connect nights are a great time for some quick stamping ideas and so much more to stay connected with each other.

I am very proud of my team for all they have done in the past several months as I have watched them gain confidence, share their creativity, and welcome new members.  We welcome anyone that would like to become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and be a member of the Inkin’ with Heart Stampers Team.
