Welcome to my first, of three, STAMPlorations Throwback Thursdays, where we select a previous card/project - one of our own or a teammate's - and 're-vision' it in three ways.
My Throwback inspiration is my Layered Snowman Luggage Tag shaker from November 2017 (I made 20 of those for my nephew's kindergarten class!); plenty of 'little' details to spark new ideas. Details like: dots, shaker elements, circles, kraft...you'll see what I mean.
I drew inspiration from the shaker and dots, and revisited them in card form. I've created a frameless shaker (inspired by the fabulous cards/videos by Ilda, of I Love Doing All Things Crafty fame). Clever, simple, not too bulky and still wonderfully shaker-y! Here's the basic shaker base...
and here's the completed card, filled with shimmery fun!
The snowman/snowball circles inspired my second card; another of my 'let the stencil be the star of the stage' creations. The Retro Circles stencil is such fun 'as is'; the addition of a Skinny Sentiment makes for a quick-and-easy card. A trio of onyx pearls completes the look.
Sharing a couple of closeups to show how well the stencil and the die cut letters take ink, without losing even an iota of detail!
As the original creation was a tag with a kraft base, I 'had' to replicate that in some fashion, which I've done here. I shifted gears from whimsical to 'dainty' for my slim white/kraft panel (I've yet to decide if I'll add it to a card base or leave it as a tag) that features one of my all time favourite stencils - Happy Flowers - and a sentiment from Bloom Happy.
Scattered Straw (to create a subtle glow in the flowers' centers), Tattered Rose and Shabby Shutters distress inks make for a soft, pastel palette.

All three of your NEW designs are adorable... but, I'm not sure you can 'out cute' the snow dude - nobody could!! xx
Oooh, these are all fabulous!!
Wonderful variety of cards and cute snowman shaker tag.
Wonderful cards. The second is in one of my favourite 'feel good' colours, so I love it for that reason alone but I also love that stencil AND the skinny sentiments! Lovely.
These cards are fabulous, Carol. I've been wanting ot make one of the shaker cards like your first one! I love it in action. Your second card is a wonderful color and I adore the movement of the circles. And finally, you are showing off your fantastic ink blending skills in the flower card! Love the colors and the softness. Thanks SO much for sharing, Carol! Big hugs!
Wow, amazing projects! Fabulous designs and techniques. The shaker card is really cool and creative.
So pretty! Love the cards and the colors you chose.
What a cutie-patootie snowman! Although he sure ate too much, LOL!
that original tag is very cute! And sparked such a great variety of new projects. That floral stencil is SO pretty the way you've used it!
Great cards! The colors you selected are so fun. Nice job.
Beautiful! I love your projects!
I love how you were inspired by your tag to make three completely different cards, Carol. I have a tendency to go too literal and need to follow your lead and think beyond the original.
wow, stunning techniques and projects, I love shakers!
