Default Are Shaker cards out of my league?

I LOVE the look of a shaker card, they are among my favorite! BUT, they seem SO hard when I picture myself making one! Do you HAVE to have Nesties to do them or will punches of different sizes work?

Another quick question, where would be a source for the plastic that goes over the top so the stamped image is visible?

TIA, you ladies are the BEST!

Shaker cards are super easy, they just look like a lot of work!

If you ever buy clear stamp sets from Papertrey you get a sheet of plastic that the stamps are manufactured on. After you put the stamps into the case then you have a sheet that is perfect for a shaker card!

I use the plastic that ziplock bags are made of. I think it's pretty much the same, you just need a see-through material and ziplocks are something you have in your own house.

Here are stamps that make shaker cards also. I love the cupcake one, it makes a great card.

I use acetate, doesn't even need to be the thick sheets, ordinary copier weight. And I don't have a Cuttlebug, let alone Nestabilities, so that's not a barrier. Punches work great, or if you have any sort of cutting system. I sometimes use the Fiskars ShapeCutter.
Try one and have fun

here is one I made that doesn't even use any punches or anything. I just cut the girl out with a craft knife. I stamped her, she's a silhouette stamp, then cut her out.

For clear stuff I actually used some of the packaging that the stamps came with.

the stuff inside is cupcake sprinkles.

I think they only thing you really need is foam dots or foam tape.

It's one of those great techniques that look hard, but aren't really.

I hadn't even HEARD of Nestabilities the lat time I made a Shaker Card! Punches or any cutting system will work- and you can do it. They are really fun cards to make. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Now I want to make one too! Thanks for reminding me about this really cool technique.

If you ever get salad from the salad bar in the grocery store, you can wash the containers and cut out the top and bottom to use whenever you need some clear acetate. They are heavy weight and very clear.

I just made a shaker card and video tutorial and posted it on my blog this week. They really aren't hard to make. I used to think the same thing. Check mine out. I don't make them really fancy. I usually use a simple design.

Happy Stamping!

I've gotten 5 sets in the past couple months... but I've thrown all those plastic sheets away!

Here is a shaker card that I made for Christmas one year. I think I made about 30 of them. I used acetate for the shaker part and I cut out the middle of the globe with a craft knife. They aren't that hard but everyone thinks you spent a ton of time on it!

Kathy your card is beautiful. Where did you get the globe stamp from? I have been wanting to get one for myself.

Also I was wondering if the double sided carpet tape would work for the shaker card? We have some left over from some carpet repairs we did and I would like to use it up.

Just to reassure you, I started stamping 10 years ago after I saw a segment by Dee Gruenig on the Carol Duval show. I went out and bought all the supplies to duplicate the card and guess what it was... a shaker!! With heat embossing!! For my very first card ever!!

And guess what else... it wasn't that hard!!

My little tip (if it hasn't already been shared) is to use craft foam sheets instead of foam tape or foam core board. It cuts super easy and is pretty cheap. With foam tape, you have to be really careful that you don't leave any gaps where the shaker guts could come out, but with the craft foam, you have a completely enclosed "pocket" of sorts. I really prefer it! HTH!

There is a cheaters version I was shown by my SU demo. She used a paper CD envelope (available at Staples). She stamped a piece of paper and put it inside the CD envelope (which already has a clear window). She stamp the front of the CD envelope with a similar design that you put inside. Then put in some glitter or confetti shapes and lick it shut. Mount that to sqaure cardstock cut slightly larger. Then mount the entire piece to the front of a card. Put a sentiment inside and you are done! No punching, no acetate or foam!
It really looks cute.

FYI to everyone interested in making shaker cards -- my friend Jody (texasjodylynn) has discovered the coolest adhesive thingies just for shaker cards. I can't explain them -- you just need to see them for yourself. Go to her blog at Confessions of a Ribbon Addict to check them out.

I agree. Shakers are super easy, but only a stamper will know that. I did last year's Christmas cards as shakers and it was very easy. Used punches and Colluzzle(sp?) square for the shaker part. You can do it. Be sure to share. Here's mine.

Also I use transparency sheets for my plastic. I use it on my shaker cards and my acetate cards. I'm a teacher so I always have extra transparencies! The excess from laminating works well too!
