Sister Stamps Release #5 - Miyako

Welcome to another day of Sister Stamps release and today I am featuring the ever so cute Miyako!  I recently found a lot of different heart confetti as I cleaned out one of my drawers so it prompted me to create this Valentine shaker card.  I used to be intimidated by shakers and thought they were hard to do.  But after much trial and error, I found them to be simple to make with the following tricks:

1. Rub the acetate with a used dryer sheet to remove static so the confetti "shakes" and doesn't stick to the acetate.
2. With a small brush, lightly "paint" some cornstarch or baby powder on the sides of your mounting tape so the confetti and micro beads don't stick to it.
3. I found 3M Scotch brand mounting tape works best.  I buy the roll and cut it in strips to fit my window.
