Time for our new challenge ...

Today, we're releasing our new Shaker stamps sets, now available at! Not only are they super fun images, but our 5 new sets come with a die and an action wobble to get you started!

Here's a little peek at the new products!

Cheri is with us today to show us what she's created with her new Shaker!

Hello Ai Fans!
It's another exciting release day! It's time for new Shaker stamps and images! Hold onto your hats these are going to make you chuckle and put a smile on your face!
Today for the New Shaker release I am using the oh so adorable "My Feet Set" (#4680). This cute set comes with the stamped images, die, sentiment and action wobble. Great value for your money that's for sure!
 To start I gathered up all the supplies I needed. I am using papers from the Tailored Expressions Create A Scene Halloween 6x6 collection.
 I stamped my image onto Copic X-press it paper with Memento ink in Tuxedo black.
I coloured both the monster and the extra set of feet with my Copic Sketch markers
 I cut all my Design Paper and sentiment out using the Spellbinders Large Octagon metal dies. I am making a 5.5" square card. My base layer is cut at 5 1/2" square, the purple layer is 5 6/8" square and the patterned piece is cut at 5 1/4" square. 
I glued the octagon pieces onto black cardstock. Using my Mini Perfect Layers tool and craft knife I cut around each of the octagons using the 1/16th mark on the ruler. 
I wound some purple twine around the left hand side and attached it to the back of my bottom layer. Now that everything is ready I attached all the layers onto a 5 1/2" square pre-made card base. 

I added little googly eyes to my monster. The monster and sentiment are popped up with foam squares. I made a twine bow and attached a pumpkin button to it. The last step is to add the action wobble to the feet and then lining them up with the full image, attach them to the monster.
 Here's the side view so you can see how things are layered and the wobble is attached.
Copics Used:
Monster: V91, V93, V95
tummy and feet pads: BG90, BG93, BG96
Pumpkin: YR02, YR04, YR07, Y18

Below is a quick video of what the action wobble "shake" looks like!

Thanks for stopping by today! Head on over to the Ai Online store and check out the new releases! You're gonna love them!

Thanks, Cheri!
