Dies R Us Watering Can

On the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog today! I have a fun shaker card to inspire you for your card making.  You can make this a shaker card as I did, or just a card without the shaker window.  It's your choice and your creation.
To make this card I started with a Swiss Dot embossing folder on white card stock.  Then I die cut the watering can and the mushrooms and leaves.  After I figured out where I wanted the watering can to be on my card, I used my exact o knife to cut a triangle in the panel, just under the spout.  I put two layers on fun foam on the back of this panel and then added my sequins and beads for my shaker.  The whole panel was then added to the base card.  Next I arranged the mushrooms and leaves that I had die cut and colored previously.  I think mushrooms need water too!  Anyway, they look like they do.  I drew in some green grass for the mushrooms to rest in and anchor them in the scene.
Here are the dies that I used.

  1. I adore Shaker cards! And yours is AMAZING! It is so unique and clever.....I LOVE IT! The watering can looks great showering your mushrooms and foliage. Really super cool!

  2. Oh, you clever, clever girl. How DO you come up with this stuff?? This is so stinkin' cute, and I love that you added the mushrooms instead of flowers. Such a cute design, and so very creative!!! YOU ROCK, and you knocked my socks off with this one!!

  3. WOW!!! This is so out of the box and creative. I love the mushrooms and water can. Waving the foliage and drawing the grass is perfect. Fabulous.

  4. I'm over the moon in love with this, Barbara! That barely visible shaker "spray" behind your mushroom garden is brilliant!! Hugs, Darnell

  5. I love your little garden scene and that you made the shaker to look like the pouring water.

  6. Adorable card and super dies used. Extremely clever making this into a shaker card and it's inspired me to use my watering can like this later when I use it again... I am now following you, found you on Judy's blog.xx
