Jenifer Snyder here to share some of Creative Embellishments trendy chipboard designs with you. 
I’ve noticed a few trends gaining popularity as the year progresses; Artist trading Coins and shakers.  
 
Creative Embellishments is at the forefront as a trend setter with it’s innovative chipboard ATC and shaker designs. The ATC (artist trading coins) are perfectly sized for traditional cards and awesome for shakers.
 
These are the chipboard pieces  I used on the cards shown today.

It’s very simple to turn your ATC’s into shakers using Creative Embellishments – Coin Ring and Shaker Acrylic Pieces .  These were made to coordinate with the ATC’s as spacers to create shakers. 
Artist Trading Coin- Coin Rings for Shakers
The chipboard pieces on this first card were lightly sponge dabbed with white acrylic paint.  Next after the white acrylic dried, I used a dry paintbrush and lightly painted aqua and green accents on the sea horses and a bit on the starfish.  
The paper is designed by a wonderful artist with a flowing watercolor style; Alexandra Renke – Seahorses. 
I filled with sequins and crystals from Buttons Galore – Sparkletz.  They have an assortment of colors and bits for the perfect filler.
TIP:  Add your filler then use a good adhesive to seal the shaker with the pre-cut acrylic piece that comes in the kit.  I used Beacons 3-in-1 glue because it dries clear and works well with a  variety of surfaces ( acrylics, plastics, wood, metal, fabric, canvas).
My second card is still designed in keeping with the seaside theme yet a little more conventional.
The chippies are painted with ivory acrylic and a dab of light blue.

The papers used on this card are from Stamperia’s Sea Land 12×12 collection – a peaceful and soft collection perfect for seaside projects.

 

I did add a wisp of cheesecloth under the chipboard word and some glass beads.

Thanks for stopping here.  Happy Crafting.
