International Highlights Winners Blog Hop - August 2022

I’m so excited to be featured in the the International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop hosted by Kylie Bertucci. I was selected to participate in this hop by finishing #10 in the August 2022 International Highlights. Thank you to everyone who voted for my watercoloured pomegranate card.

I created this fun shaker tag card using the Stampin' Up! Celebrate with Tags Bundle. When I first saw this bundle I knew that this die was perfect for making Shaker Tags which are perfect as a tag or also to add to a card base. Isn't this pretty in Blushing Bride and Black and White. The For Everything Fancy Sequins are so pretty with pink, white, iridescent and gold sequins and even little pearls! The package includes blue and green ones too! So fun!


  1. Cut Blushing Bride card stock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2". Fold on score line to form card base.
  2. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Embossing using the Timeworn Type embossing folder.
  4. Adhere to card base
  5. Cut out large tag die from Blushing Bride card stock
  6. Cut stitched rectangle opening in front using die. This can be done in one step when you cut the die out.
  7. Cut the side flap pieces off
  8. Cut Basic White cardstock 2" x 3"
  9. Stamp hearts in Blushing Bride ink and adhere to the inside of the tag
  10. Cut Window Sheet 2" x 3" and adhere to the rectangle opening.
  11. Adhere Adhesive Foam Strips around window opening so there is no gaps.
  12. Add sequins - note do not over fill or you may have issues with getting the shaker to seal and the sequins will spill out! (Trust me, I speak from experience :)! )
  13. Peel off backing on foam strips and close tag to seal in the sequins.
  14. Cut 4" of ribbon, fold in half and put through tag
  15. Adhere tag to card base.
  16. Cut out heart from Blushing Bride cardstock
  17. Adhere to tag
  18. Stamp sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento ink
  19. Cut out using Die or Paper Snips
  20. Adhere to card base
  21. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  22. Stamp hearts using Blushing Bride ink
  23. Adhere to inside of card.
