Halloween Fun

Hello everyone! It is Kathy back to share a fun Halloween Shaker Card using the new Candy Sack stamp set and a rainbow of Distress inks. Here are the supplies you will need to get started:

Start by setting up your stamping platform, pre-aligning the stamp. Rather than centering the image, I placed the candy sack above center to allow room for the sentiment below on the finished card. 

After you have everything lined up, the most important step is to prepare your acetate with anti-static powder on BOTH sides. It will reduce the stray embossing powder and will buff off after you have applied the heat.

Once you have the acetate ready, place it on your platform. Ink up the stamp with embossing ink and stamp the image on your acetate. Cover the image with Raven Ultra Fine Detail Embossing Powder and lightly tap off the extra. You may want to hold your image against a white piece of paper to see if there is any stray powder that needs to be removed. Apply heat and emboss the image. Use a soft towel to buff off the anti-static powder.

With Distress ink blend a rainbow background on a 4 ¼ x 5 ½ inch piece of cardstock.

Die cut the frame and background.

Prep the background piece with double-sided tape. Using the frame as a guide, place the background on your card panel and adhere. 

Next, place your embossed image on the frame and trim off any excess. Using double-sided tape attach your image to the frame, making sure the embossed side is facing out. 

Place foam tape as close as possible to the edge of the background. Be sure all corners meet so your shaker fill won’t leak out.


Pile your sequins and confetti in the middle of the back panel. Remove the paper from the foam tape and place the frame in place around the background, sealing everything inside.

Stamp and emboss the sentiment on a piece of cardstock matching the card base and adhere below the image. 

Happy Halloween!
