I've been playing with the April Showers Bundle which includes the following:

- Puddle Play Stamp Set
- Puddle Play Dies
-April Showers Stamp Set
- April Showers Dies

I shared this card the other day HERE and said I would share soon what I did with the piece I cut the clouds from. 

I made it into a shaker card! 
I added a piece of acetate to the back and a bunch of craft foam around the clouds and the edges of the panel to make pockets for the sequins.

I blended the same colors of ink that I used for the sentiment onto another piece of white card stock to place behind the shaker openings but first I poured in some sequins. After adhering that together I layered it onto a piece of black card stock that I cut just the tiniest bit bigger to give it a frame and then adhered it to a white card base.

I used the MISTI to stamp the bear, then colored him in using a blender pen and some more of Catherine's great inks. Before I cut him out with the coordinating die I put him back into my MISTI to re-stamp it so that the lines would be nice and crisp after coloring. I adhered him to the card and called it done. But of course I spent a few minutes shaking it and watching the sequins move around.
