Shaker Card Tutorial Using Tombow Dual Brush Pens

Hello, Sweet friends! Welcome to a week of FUN in collaboration with Tombow USA. We’re SO happy to be showcasing all of these tutorials from our different contributors and guess what? The Tombow team is playing along, too! You’ll find even more inspiration over on their blog.


We don’t have to tell you that there’s been a growing popularity with hand lettering! We bet a lot of you already own a handful of Tombow’s Dual Brush Pens for this purpose, but what if we told you that there’s SO much more you can do with them? Here at Sweet, we love stretching your dollars and we’re going to be bringing you lots of ideas this week on how to get more out of your Brush Pens.

Mamie Carson is showing off how to to color on watercolor paper and to create this rainbow fun shaker card. When we first asked if Mamie wanted to participate in the Tombow collab, she didn’t hesitate to respond YES!

About the markers, Mamie says:

These Markers are amazing. They blend like butter, have a lot of pigment, and the colors are vivid and beautiful. I was already sold on their adhesives, as I’ve used them for years, but now I’m obsessed with their markers, too! I even went out and bought their other marker sets to add to my new collection.

Here’s the video on how Mamie created this fun card (using REAL sprinkles!)

She continues:

The Life is Sweet stamp set is perfect for watercoloring with my new Tombow markers because you can play with all the colors to create different ice creams and top the card off with the lovely sentiment as the perfect focal point. I had so much fun creating this card!

Have you made shaker cards before? Do you have more ideas to put into the shaker? We absolutely love this fun card and hope that it’s inspired you to get crafting, too!  If you’d like to see more of Mamie’s tutorials, please find her on her blog or even better, You Tube Channel.

    This is a great idea, I love to stretch my supplies too !! So far, since I’m a newbie in cardmaking, I never try shaker card.
