Happy Birthday using Easter Shaker Die

I'm back again today and since I was having fun with this Happy Easter Shaker die from Pretty Pink Posh I thought why not use it for a Birthday card as I wanted to make a special card for one of my sweet friends on IG who is celebrating their birthday. May all your wishes come true Michelle!! 

Also, joining one more time with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of Anything Goes. Here you go

I really love this Happy Easter Shaker die so I thought by cutting out the word Easter, I could turn it into a Happy Birthday card and use the beautiful elements of the die. So after I cropped the word out, I colored the flowers, leaves, and the "HAPPY" using my copic markers. 

For the word "Birthday", I used the Fox Friends set and stamped it down using black ink against the white. 

To make this into a shaker, I ended up die cutting the Happy Easter Shaker die again using white fun foam to act as the middle sandwich and than used an oval shaped die to cover the shaker.

To fill up this shaker, I used: Spring Blooms Sequins Mix as it has an assortment of pinks, purples, and iridescent sequins. Also, added several Mini Sparkling Clear Flowers and a couple of flowers from the Spring Flower Sequins Mix 

As you can see, the oval shape die fits perfect behind this Happy Easter Shaker die 

For the inside of the card, I decorated it by using the Scallop Oval Die along with using the new Bunny Friends stamp set as this little guy screams "fun, sending hugs, celebration, and more" to me. 

For the sentiment on the inside of the card, I pulled out Birdie Friends and stamped the banner sign. Later, I cut off the legs from the banner to have just the rectangle frame. Added foam mount to pop it up as this is what helps to hold the card upright so one can place anywhere.

Happy Easter Shaped Card

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter today. I've been having some fun playing with this Happy Easter Shaker die from Pretty Pink Posh and decided to try and create an Easter Egg shaped card to sit upright since this die has so many beautiful details. 

Very easy to make and even the kids could have fun doing one. Also, joining over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of Anything Goes   

For this card, I started off by die cutting the Happy Easter Shaker die and put it aside while I created a background using alcohol inks.

Next, I die cut the alcohol inked background using an Oval basic shape that fit perfectly behind the Happy Easter Shaker.

From there, I grabbed the next size up from my Oval shape dies to placed on top of an A2 size card and ran it through the die cutting machine.

Next, I scored the front top panel of the oval card at 2" and used a bone folder to make sure it was flat. From there, I die cut a single Oval shape using the same size using teal card stock and glued it down to the bottom half only. 

For the inside of the card, I decided to decorate by adding a Scallop Oval Die as I love the inverted scallops and it fit perfectly over the Oval Shape. 

From there, I couldn't resist but to use this new Bunny Friends stamp set again so I stamped one of the bunnies in the center and colored using my copic markers.
Here is one more Easter Egg shaped card using pink colored card stock, but I ended up using the the Scallop Oval Die on the top of this card as I love the stitching around the oval.

For this card, I created the alcohol background using blue colors.  

Again, I stamped one bunny using the Bunny Friends in the center and colored using my copic markers. 

For the sentiment on both cards, I pulled out Birdie Friends and stamped the banner sign to add a word. Later, I cut off the legs from the banner to have just the rectangle frame. Added foam mount to pop it up as this is what helps to hold the card upright so one can place anywhere.  

Had lots of fun adding several colored jewels:  WatermelonPansy PurpleLemon Drop, Pink Blush and Shamrock for the leaves.

Birthday Celebration with Flowers and a Shaker

Back again today with a Birthday shaker for one of my sweet friends on IG who is celebrating their birthday and I wanted to wish her the very best day possible and all year long. Also, joining over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of Anything Goes   

For this card, I'm using the Bold Blooms set from Pretty Pink Posh and started off by stamping several flowers using inks from Altenew using different colors. Next, I reached for the Coordinating Die which came in handy since I added a couple more flowers and leaves. 

To create the shaker, I pulled out one of my favorite, the: Stitched Pieces from Pretty Pink Posh and created some clouds in the middle using Maliblue ink from Simon Says Stamp along with foam blending tool from ranger.

Next, I die cut a couple of borders using the Stitched Borders 1 collection using gray card stock and glued under the shaker on each side.

I decided to add several shaker elements into each rectangle matching the corresponding flowers. For the pinks at the bottom, I combined: Petunia Seed Beads, 4mm Sparkling Clear Sequins, and 4mm Pink Blush

In all of the rectangles, I also added several Mini Sparkling Clear Flowers to combine with the other shaker elements. For the sentiment on the bottom, I pulled out the Everyday Greetings and heat embossed the words using white embossing powder.

At the end, I added some foam mount under the little flowers to pop them up over the leaves.

Happy Easter

Since Easter is around the corner, I thought I would make an Easter card using this cute Bunny Friends sets from Pretty Pink PoshAlso, joining over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of Anything Goes   

For this card, I wanted to challenge myself a bit by trying to create a one layer card, but at the same time, I keep thinking maybe a shaker and in the end, this is the result. 

I started off by using my copic markers to create the background scene along with adding some grass at the bottom. I thought to myself it's a good way to practice flicking upwards. 

From there, I added these cute little bunnies along with using the Coordinating die to cut them out perfectly. At first I was going to placed them flat onto the scene, but later changed my mind and added some foam mount to pop them up a little.

From there, I added the sentiment by using the new Happy Easter Script die for the word "Easter" and ended up die cutting it three times to glue them together to add some dimension. Next, I used the Fox Friends set for the word "Happy" along with some white embossing powder. 

I couldn't resist but to add these adorable Bee Friends to the scene and let me say, the Coordinating die for this set was beyond helpful.

Last but not least, I added some new jewel using Watermelon for the yellow and pink bunnies, Shamrock for the blue bunny in the middle, and Lemon Drop, for the background. In the end, I added a Scallop Frame which I also die cut three times and glued together for dimension.

Happy Birthday Shaker Card

I'm back today with another card. This time I combined a few stamp sets from Pretty Pink Posh to create this Happy Birthday shaker card for my grand daughter. Also joining the challenge over at Seize the Birthday with Birthday Theme

For this card, I pulled out Storybook 3 as they are fun to use to split up the scene and add little shaker items. So I began adding clouds using (Salty Ocean) distress ink along with (Mowed Lawn) for the grass. 

I really love the font script from the new Happy Easter Script die so I used the word "HAPPY" and added the word "Birthday" using the Fox Friends set.

This bunny is so cheerful from the Bunny Friends that I couldn't resist but to use along with the spring flowers and Coordinating die which helped me cut them out perfectly.

Since it's a celebration, I stamped a little party hat, present and balloons using the the Birthday Friends set along with the Coordinating Die to help me cut out the images as well. Added some foam mount tape under the bunny to add a little more dimension. 

Last but not least, I added some new jewel using Watermelon, Pansy PurpleLemon Drop, along with some Sparkling Clear Confetti Mix sequins for the top portion of the card. For the bottom portion, I added some Spring Green seed beads to finish off the card.

Happy Birthday using Sparkle Dot Patterns 2

I'm back today with another card using the new Sparkle Dot Patterns 2 set from Pretty Pink Posh along with the new jewels as I'm loving them. Here, I made a different flower and created a birthday card for one of my friends at work.

Again, I started with an A2 size card base and penciled in two lines, both horizontal and vertical using the middle as a guide. For this flower, I placed the one petal on top of the horizontal line on top and than the other petals next to them.

I ended up added a pencil dot approx 1/2" above the center line to help see where I wanted the steam to start.

From there, I drawed in a steam by curving it and stamped down the leaves using the new Cherry Blossoms set with Antique Linen Distress ink as I was planning on coloring using my copic markers.

Next, I removed one petal and stamped using a light grey ink (fog-SSS) and repeated the process until the four petals were done. From there, I erased all pencil lines before adding the jewels.  

Afterwards, I placed one of the flowers from the new Bunny Friends set on top of the petals and colored it yellow to add a Lemon Drop jewel in the center.

To color in the steam and leaves, I used my copic markers as I wanted to practice no line coloring. Next, I used the Happy Easter Script die to cut out the word "HAPPY" four times to stack them together since I wanted to add some dimension. Afterwards, I pulled out the Fox Friends stamp set to use the word "BIRTHDAY".

Last but not least, I used these fabulous new jewels in Watermelon, Pansy Purple, and Shamrock for the leaves at the bottom.
