Shakers, Sprinkles, Tinsels and Tags

Hello! I have been playing with my new make-it-Market Kits the past few days. The first kit I got was Shakers and Sprinkles, and I just received the Tinsel and Tags kit a few days ago. I have made  several of the shaker cards, and given most of them away. I have made two ornaments from the T&T kit so far.The first one I stamped the tree, house, deer and snowman with the coordinatings stamps in the kit.

 The second ornament I used black for the sky layer, and left everything else white for a nighttime scene.

Then I got to thinking that maybe some of the scenery dies in the T&T kit might work with the S&S frames for a shaker element. I used the oval frame from S&S, the house layer and small banner from T&T. I stamped the coordinating images from the set, added some fun snowflake tinsel from Michaels, and some of the faux snow from the T&T kit. With a little trimming, the rounded house scene worked perfectly!

Two things I would change next time - less of the snowflakes, and not make the snow layer popped up with foam tape - the filler gets caught behind the layer. I did use two layers of the foam tape to give the shaker more depth though - I think that helped. So many ideas floating around in my head. :) Thanks for stopping by!


  1. These are great. I love the oval.

  2. Oh Susan, these are really wonderful. I've got both of those kits, and have not yet begun to play. I love how you were so clever to combine both kits. I'm pinning all three of these.

  3. I'll be pinning these as well!! I have the kits, and have not had time to play. I have two weeks of vacation coming up at the end of November, so I need to make sure I have all my supplies so I can crank things out!!
