For the Reveal Blog Hop, I made a shaker card with Whispers of Comfort - Hydrangea Stamp Set. I started with making the card base by cutting two same size shapes from white cardstock with Jasmine Sunset Tonic Layering Dies. One of them was scored 1,5 cm from the top. I added glue above the score line and adhered two shapes together. 

A must have tool for the technique I used, is the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I stamped the image with Jet Black StazOn to the Embossable Acetate. While keeping the acetate in the corner of the Platform, I removed the stamp from the lid and placed the sentiment stamp to the acetate right side down. I closed the lid of the Platform to pic up the stamp and made sure that the sentiment is straight. Then I removed the acetate from the Platform and stamped the sentiment to the scrap piece of paper. I placed the stamped acetate back to the Platform and used the sentiment underneath as a guide to see where the image covers the sentiment. With alcohol base Blender Marker, I started to erase part of the flower. After this was done, I stamped the sentiment to the acetate with Jet Black StazOn.

I moved on to the fun part - coloring with glitters. Glitter coloring is done on the back side of the Acetate. I applied Brushable Glue with small paint brush to the Butterfly and flower centers and covered it with Butterscotch Microfine Glitter. Then I moved on to the leaves. First I applied glue to the darkest parts of the leaves and covered it with Shamrock Microfine Glitter. Gecko Microfine Glitter was adhered to the rest of the leaves. Flowers are colored with Caspia Sea and Ocean Breeze Microfine Glitters.
Watch the Demo Donna's Hydrangea Thank You February Stamp Kit Video to see how the glitter coloring is done.

To make my shaker card, I stamped the image to the middle of the pattern paper. Then I cut it out with x-acto knife from the inside of the frame. The stamped frame is covered with Sakura Glue Pen and Butterscotch Microfine Glitter. To make the layer match with the card base, I used the same die from Jasmine Sunset Set. But instead of die-cutting, I traced the inner border to the pattern paper and cut it out with scissors.
I adhered the stamped Acetate layer behind the pattern paper frame. Another piece of pattern paper was used as a background for the shaker element. I adhered few sequins to the background and added Bronze Glass Glitter and more sequins from my stash inside of the shaker window.
Did you knew that Sparkle N Sprinkle carries sequins? Go, take a look. They are gorgeous. 

I didn't want to take a shine away from this lovely Hydrangea image, so I didn't add many embellishments. Just a piece of lace and light blue bling strip. Those diamond like elements are actually empty. I added Pale Periwinkle Nuvo Jewel Drops to fill them.

Whispers of Comfort - Hydrangea is a really gorgeous Stamp Set to have. I had so much fun playing with it on the Acetate and to color it with Microfine Glitters. I hope you try it out and share your masterpiece with us in Facebook Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge Group
