Craft Trend Report: Rainfall Shaker Cards

Every month we see so many of your lovely projects on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube and it’s so amazing to see and be a part of such a truly inspiring crafty community.

From scrapbook layouts to incredible cards, we are constantly wowed so we thought we’d join in and share our current favourite crafty inspiration for June in our first ever Craft Trend Report!

Here we will be sharing inspiration that you guys have created as well as popular trends in craft and other tutorials we think you will love.

This month we are taking a look at Rainfall Shaker Cards! So let’s get started.

Laura Dovalo – Bagatelas De Papel

This wonderful trend has been around for a little while and seems to have started with the incredibly talented Laura Dovalo. She created this unique type of shaker card for Create and Smile just under a year ago and it has only grown in popularity from there.

Her lovely design features 18 rows of delicate thread and beads representing rain and a variety of papers and stamps to create a cute autumnal theme.

If you’d like to see how Laura created this wonderful card, check out her YouTube tutorial or check out her blog to see what she used!

Laura was also featured on the My Favorite Things channel where she made 2 Magical Rain Shaker Cards as part of their May Release Sneak Peek. These cards feature frames around the card making it a hybrid of the shadow box card and rainfall shaker card. I think you’ll all agree that it gives a super pretty end product.

Marine Simon – Blue Marine Craft

Marine created this card after being inspired by Laura’s video. Her design features stunning shades of Blue oxide inks blended beautifully and textured with small splatters as well as the adorable Bluebird Rainy Day stamp set.

She also provided us with a helpful tip! Powder the edges of your foam tape to decrease the stickiness. This lets the “raindrop” beads move freely without getting stuck behind the clouds or ground.

Channin Pelletier – Craft Ghetto

Channin Pelletier has created another stunning card with a similar theme. This card also features a rainfall shaker effect but in the form of a rainbow on a full panel shaker card!

We love this colourful twist on a rainfall shaker card and it’s super easy to make if you follow her video tutorial. We especially love the clear sequins she has used to give her project a little extra magic. If you love this as much as we do, check out the full tutorial here!

WOUW sooo many awesome shakercards here, that it´s impossible to pick just one, so guess I´ll have to spend a day watching them and find out, which one is easiest to make then ha ha ha



Love these - esp the one with beads on threads! That must've taken ages to get them all spaced so well!
