Space and galaxy theme is one of those themes that I will probably never be tired to play with. Add there geometric stamps and make a shaker out of them and a good time is guaranteed. Today I will be sharing a cool geometric Galaxy shaker card I made for collaboration of Studio Katia and Krumspring.

But before I start I wanted to let you know that you can now purchase Studio Katia supplies over at Simon Say Stamp. Yay!

For my card I was using Krumspring One Triangle at a Time and Star Power stamp sets and Studio Katia Elongated Dotted Hexagons die set. I think these sets are made one for each other. This background reminds me star constellations (well, kind of) and I thought it would be fun to make a galaxy card.

To start off I created a space-like background onto a Tim Holtz watercolor panel using Rusty Hinge,  Squeezed Lemonade and Peacock Feathers Distress inks. I pressed each ink pad onto a Ranger craft mat and sprayed a bit of water on each inkpad print. Next I took a Tim Holtz watercolor panel and wet it by also spraying with water. After that I was placing my wet panel into diluted inks on my craft mat, picking them up with it. Wet panel made them blend together smoother than it would if the paper was dry.

After I covered the whole panel with inks and was happy with the result – I added water droplets with my Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer, let inks move and blotted off with paper towel. Finally I inked the over using the same inks (and inking each background area with corresponding ink).

I let my panel dry completely, putting it aside for some time. My next step was white embossing and I needed it to be bone dry.

The Krumspring One Triangle at a Time stamp was white embossed onto the panel. After sprinkling embossing powder I flicked the panel from the back side to shake some powder off as I wanted my embossed background to be uneven. After heat setting it I drew over some lines with embossing marker to make them thicker, in favor of unevenness.

I die cut the panel using Elongated Dotted Hexagons dies and also die cut the same shapes out of sticky-back black foam and black cardstock.

I assembled the shaker onto a black card base using all these die cuts, pleasing different parts of the die cut shape on different levels. I added Iridescent Seed Beeds and Stars into the shaker. To adhere acetate piece Ranger Glossy Accents was used.

The sentiment was white embossed onto a black stripe and white embossed the star onto a watercolor one, coloring it with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink. Both stamps are from Star Power set.

Lastly I adhered the sentiment, star and several Crystal Clear sequins onto the card.

This is old and classy technique – die cutting a background and then leveling die cut parts for 3D design with continuing pattern. But it every time impresses me ;) It’s one of my to go recipes of a card ;)
