I wanted to create a 'Big Apple' shaker card, so I used my Scan-n-Cut to cut an apple shape.   I cut the inside of the shape out with a PenBlade and used this as the frame for my shaker.   I stamped the skyscrapers directly on the acetate with Staz-On ink and then created my night sky by blending Distress Ink and stamping the stars from the Newton Dreams of New York stamp set right onto the night sky.   I like the illusion of dimension having the buildings stamped right on the acetate gives.  I filled my shaker with sequins from Simon Says Stamp & Pretty Pink Posh, and closed it up with foam  tape.

I stamped and die cut several of the skyscrapers and positioned them across the front of my card, being sure to overlap the ones stamped on the shaker so it creates a seamless look....love that!   I really like the simple black and white buildings and then the POP of color from the shaker element! 

Okay....so I didn't use Newton.   I know, right?!?  I can't believe it either.    But it does show you the versatility of this stamp set....and I'm sure Newton will get a little love soon! ;)
