MCT: Favorite Stamp Of The Month: Believe In Your Dreams

So I decided to create a beautiful dreamcatcher shaker card using this set along with many other wonderful MCT products! It took a lot creative thinking to come up with it! Though I love the way it turned out!

I first cut out a piece of white card stock using the largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More. I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the die cut with the Oxford: Cuttlebug embossing folder. I really love the pattern it creates!

I stamped the three leaves from the Believe In Your Dreams Stamp Set on aqua card stock. I did so by stamping them with Versamark Ink along with Recollection's Gold Embossing powder. Then I cut each one out with the coordinating dies from the set. 

I cut out the hoop or ring out using a couple of circles from the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies. I then used one of the paint splatter stamps from Family Is Everything Stamp Set to add some gold to the ring. 

I used two ovals from the Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies and Seasonal Greetings Stamp Set to create the string like pattern inside the ring. I glued the ovals together and then added a gold circle to the middle that was cut out using a die from the Build A Banner Stamp Set. Then I added a cute little heart to the circle also from the Believe In Your Dreams Stamp Set. I glued the ring onto the pattern of ovals and then cut the overlapping pieces off with scissors. 

I wanted to make it into a shaker so I glued a piece of Vellum onto the back of the ring. Next, I added pop dots all around the back edges. I then filled the back of the ring with two sizes of gold sequins along with little hearts that were cut out using dies also from the Believe In Your Dreams Stamp Set. I closed the shaker by glueing on another circle on the back. 

I stamped on the sentiment from Believe In Your Dreams Stamp Set onto a Vellum strip that was cut out using the Stitched Belly Band Dies. I then attached it as well as the dreamcatcher parts onto my embossed rectangle die cut. I finished the card by adding a few circles to look like beads on the dreamcatcher. I cut them out using a die from the Boughs of Holly Stamp Set.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!
