Shaker Dots
by Marybeth Lopez


Hi there! Marybeth here with a some more inspiration for the : Lots of Dots Challenge! Just click on the sidebar that says challenge for all the details on how to play. One random entry will win a prize ! Hope to see you play along. 


I decided to make a shaker card using Poppystamps Dotted Border to add in my shaker.  I used the leftover watercolored paper then cut out as many dots as I could. I love the sound of the dots.


I sure love using the Peerles Water Colors to for a  vibrant  look.


The Circle Frames work  so well for shaker cards. I  layered them with cardstock , the second layer is acetate then the rest paper and or fun foam. 


  I love these Poppystamps Sending Scribbles stamp and die set!  After the watercolor paper dried, I stamped and cut out the flower images. The envelope is from Birch Press Design.

Hope you're having a great week !

If you were in the path of the storms I hope you are safe, know that you are all in my prayers.




Lovely card. You are right about the noise. I echo you comment about all in the path of the storms this week and thank you for making it.

Hi Marybeth, This is such a pretty card, very fresh-looking and the 'pops' of colour are gorgeous.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Oh Marybeth, this is just gorgeous!

Hello Maribeth, how noble of you to pray for those who are going through calamity, I join you to your prayers ... on the other hand I love your shaker card this deliciously adorable and elegant, I was fascinated by those flowers, thank you for sharing it

Marybeth, your card is so beautiful. That is a fun idea to use dots die cut for shaker filler. The flowers are beautiful and bright. Love it!

Wow! So beautiful!!!

Beautiful, eye-catching and such a versatile design for many occasions! We'll done!

BEAUTIFUL WORK, Marybeth! I LOVE the vibrancy of the flowers & the dots! AND it looks like those Peerless Water Colors are a GOOD PRICE!!! ;) Something ALL Crafters LOVE! LOL I LOVE the vibrant colors on the white too, AND that you've made this a Shaker Card! SO FUN!!!

Absolutely beautiful! xxx

Woww que lindo me encantaron las flores y los colores !!!

This is a beautiful card and I'm so pleased to see this die. It takes forever to punch enough dots for a shaker and this is wonderful die to do that quickly.

Love "confetti"!!!! and colors!!!! Beautiful card!!!

Love the pretty vibrant colors.

I like how the confetti dots perfectly match the flowers. Beautiful shaker card!

Beautiful shaker card, Marybeth! Love the creative use of the circle dies and the dots die. No one time use kits required, dies that can be used over and over in as many creative ways as we choose, love it! The colourful flowers are gorgeous. Thank you for sharing this beautiful, inspiring card today, just the inspiration I needed. I can use these techniques for my grandaughter's birthday card this month.

what a vibrant card! I thought the flowers were cut from felt!

Beautiful !! Loved those bright flowers against white a lot !

Wow my kinda colours bright and bold and love how you created the dots perfect match using the same colours and don't they look fab too perfect thank you for sharing your super pretty card.

Hi, Marybeth! Thank you very much for sharing the tutorial for the shaker card. I used your instructions to make a shaker card for my Grandaughter's birthday card. I also added a slider underneath the shaker, from your pictures of the bee slider. The card was a huge hit! My grandaughter and son were trying to figure out how I made it, I thought my son was going to take it apart.
Thank you for sharing your creations and excellent tutorials on this blog!
