Today, I’m going to share with you a fun shaker card using a suite of products that’s drowning in texture, color, and fun under the sea images. If you’re thinking the Tranquil Texture Suite from the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog you would be correct. Since it’s summer this suite was perfect to play around with since I adore going to the beach and walking on the shore at sundown or even going to the aquarium and looking at the sea life. Which is something I love to do.

This card is really a very easy one to create.  It only took me about 16 minutes and would have been less if I hadn’t had to look for some of the supplies, since I had misplaced my window sheets.  I had to come up with a quick solution to my problem.  So I used one of our 6″ x 8″ cello bags as my window.  I just trimmed it down using my Stampin’ Trimmer for a quick fix, you would be surprised what you can come up with in a pinch.

This suite is overflowing with images and embellishments that were designed to give your projects gorgeous texture.  For the inside of the shaker I used the new Tranquil Texture Sprinkles;  with it’s tiny beads and pebbles inside the Tranquil Texture Sprinkles create the perfect elements in this under the sea shaker card.


If you notice below there are a great mix of seed beads, beads that look like sea glass, pebbles, and clear sequins.  There are a ton of great colors in this mix.  With these wonderful embellishments and the Tranquil Texture Designer Series Paper you will be able to create mouth watering texture with ease.

I stamped the Octopus in Pumpkin Pie classic ink to compliment the colors in the Tranquil Texture Designer Series Paper.  The Tranquil Texture Designer Series Paper features the following colors: Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Fresh Fig, Mint Macaron, Night of Navy, Soft Seafoam, Tranquil Tide, Whisper White.  With all those wonderful colors you can see why I paired it with Pumpkin Pie, and my Coastal Cabana card base.
