Shaky Birthday

Hello! It’s Friday, which means I get to create and to make customer thank you cards this afternoon… if my little toddler naps today. We went to her well baby checkup on Wednesday, and when I mentioned that my 2-year-old was skipping naps a lot, the doctor had the audacity to tell me that some 2-year-olds stop napping.

No. Nope. No. When my oldest child stopped napping at age 3, I knew I was being cheated. Because all the baby books and baby classes said they would nap until age 5. So she stopped at 3, of course. And then my son stopped napping at age 3, and that was really just the worst. So I’m sorry, but I do not accept that my 2-year-old is done with naps. She’s getting a later bedtime instead.

What were we talking about? Oh yeah. This super fun shaker card.

Stampin' Up! handmade birthday shaker card using Party Hat Birthday & Party Hat Builder framelits, Marbled background stamp, washi tape - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I cut a rectangle out of the Whisper White cardstock with my Stampin’ Trimmer (2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″), then cut the background piece slightly bigger. Before I glued the Window Sheet to the back of the Whisper White piece, I embossed it with the Polka Dot Basics folder. I glued a piece of a Window Sheet, slightly larger than the window, to the back of the Whisper White cardstock.

The background piece is stamped in LL Twist with the Marbled background stamp, which I just got, and which I now love. It reminds me of cake frosting. After I stamped the background, I attached Foam Adhesive Strips all the way around the edges of the background piece, careful not to leave any gaps for the shaker bits to fall out. The shaker bits come from the Party Hat Birthday bundle. I stamped the party hat stamp with all the cakes, hats, and gifts on it in all three colors, Emerald Envy, Berry Burst, and Lemon-Lime Twist. There is a coordinating die for this stamp that cuts out all the little bits. So I stamped it twice in Berry Burst and once each in Emerald Envy and LLT. The Emerald Envy and Berry Burst ones are in the shaker, and I used three of the LL Twist ones for outside the shaker. Once the shaker bits were in and situated, I attached the Whisper White piece to the background with the foam strips, then attached the whole thing to the Berry Burst card base with more foam strips and my favorite glue.

After I stamped the sentiment, I flagged one end with the Banner Triple Punch, then glued it to the card front. I added the little LL Twist bits with glue and Mini Dimensionals, then a strip of Myths & Magic Washi Tape and a strip of washi from Basics Pack 1. Then I added sequins and I was done.

Hey! My husband bought me a new phone on Black Friday (it was seriously cheap), and one of the perks of that new phone is that I have loads more storage space now, so I can do videos more often! This is not a Facebook Live video, so I get right to it. That’s new for me. :) I hope you enjoy it.

Feathery Friends

Stampin' Up! Wood Textures paper, Feathery Friends host stamp set, Birthday Blooms - handmade birthday card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Hey! Today’s card is pretty simple as far as layers and embellishments go, but I love how it turned out. I used the Wood Textures designer series paper (included in the October DSP sale!) and decided to heat emboss these cute little flowers from the Feathery Friends host stamp set directly on the paper. You can’t buy this stamp set — you can only earn it and buy it with Stampin’ Rewards with an order over $150 or a party that goes over $150. Isn’t it cute?

Stampin' Up! Wood Textures paper, Feathery Friends host stamp set, Birthday Blooms - handmade birthday card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

The card base is Emerald Envy, which is terribly underappreciated. After I mounted the embossed background on the card base, I added a piece of the Pool Party 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon and zigzagged it back and forth until I liked how it looked. I Glue Dotted that down, then added the sentiment. The sentiment is stamped on Whisper White in… well, honestly I’m not sure. I thought I used Calypso Coral, but in the pictures it looks like Tangerine Tango. Either one would look great, though! The sentiment is from the Birthday Blooms stamp set, and the flowers are from the same Feathery Friends set. The circle is cut out with the Stitched Shapes framelits. I popped the sentiment up on Dimensionals, being careful to only place the Dimensionals above and below where the ribbon was.

All of the items I used in my card can be found in my online Stampin’ Up! store (linked supply list is at the end of this post). Make sure to use the October Host Code (below), and I’ll send you extra goodies!
