A savings of $10.00!!!
But just so you know,
due to the set up of the shopping cart,
$2.50 will show up and be charged for shipping,
but Tara has already deducted the amount
from the overall price of the stamps!
So no worries!!!

OR just the "Picture This" OR the "Picture That" stamp set
you will receive a free studio file!!!
((NOT SVG FILE))

Even another BONUS...
EVERY purchase will get the TCBJ "All That Glitters" pattern FREE!!!

It's all just AWESOME!!!

My Project:
I decided to make another shaker card!

I thought the chevron frame stamp from Tara's "Picture That" set
would be the perfect outline for the shaker!
I stamped some white cardstock with some teal ink,
then cut out the "window" with a craft knife.
I stacked more cardstock with "windows" cut out 
on top of each other so there was a "pocket" to fill with beads and sequins
I didn't do that by hand :)
I used my Cricut and the George cart to help make that easier!

My beads and Hawaiian "sequins" were both from JoAnn's.
The flowers are from Recollections and Studio G.
My paper is from The Paper Studio's (Hobby Lobby) Khloe Lane stack.

I topped off the shaker with the sentiment "Mahalo"
from the new Destination Fun stamp set...
Perfect for this card!

Here is a close up of the shaker and stamps:

Now hop along to the amazing Michelle
