Jennifer Snyder here to share some whimsical Halloween shaker fun.  I created two shaker cards using the darling shaker chipboard sets from Creative Embellishments.

Here are the chipboard shaker sets used in today’s featured cards: Creative Embellishments – Boo Shaker and Creative Embellishments – Gnome Shaker.

Here is the first card.  How adorable is this gnome shaker set!  The fabulous little gnome can be decorated for any occasion.

I did alter the shaker set a bit to make the beard dimensional and not part of the shaker.   I also opted to adjust the top shaker layer to accommodate the dimensional beard.   Scroll down and I’ll show you what I did.

Below is an image of how I finished the beard using some molding /texture paste applied thickly. I actually used Aleene’s True Snow Paste for the beard because it has a hint of glitter.  My photo image didn’t pick up the little glitter flecks, but in person, there is a delicate touch of shimmer in the Halloween gnome’s beard.  He’s quite fetching.

And white opaque paste will work; molding paste, texture paste,  etc.

After the snowy white beard dried, I assembled the shaker.  I did not want the beard included as part of the shaker so I cut the top layer apart.  I needed to cover the nose and cheeks – so I had to bend and shape to fit, but it worked out well.  I was happy.



The shaker was filled using Hocus Pocus Sprinkletz shaker mix,  a new Halloween collection of Sprinkletz from Buttons Galore.  The candy corn 3D Button is also from Buttons Galore.
Creative Embellishments – Jolly Jack O Lanterns are great finishing accents.  They have been painted with orange acrylic paint, then topped with orange embossing powder for added texture.

Here is the second card.  What I really love about the BOO shaker set is that each letter is a separate shaker and can be finished uniquely.
The chipboard was simply painted with black acrylic paint.  Nothing fancy.
The darling little critters represent my three gray cats, “The Grays” ( Frannie, Macy and Eddie).   They are nutty and create a ton of shenanigans at my house so it’s only fitting that the sentiment reads “Purranormal Cativity”.  The stamps and dies are from Spellbinders and Fun Stampers Journey.
The shaker mix here is a new collection called Doo Dadz from Buttons Galore.  Super fun and sparkly.  The 3D ghost buttons are also from Buttons Galore.
One last item of interest – the paper is from Doodlebug Design’s Candy Carnival 6×6 collection.  Totally adorable and spooktacular.
