Six new cards!

Hello again!  Just popped in to share a half-dozen new cards.  These were sent as part of a gift to my dad and stepmom.  I like to stock them with handmade cards (and they like to tease me that they won't be sending them back to me!) 

Thanks - I love being spoiled.
Supplies: All supplies by Stampin' Up.  Flower punch from the "Itty Bitty Punch Pack," stamp from "Afterthoughts."  

Happy Birthday! 
Supplies used:  Border punch from Fiskars.  Swiss Dot embossing folder from Cuttlebug.  All other supplies from Stampin' Up; flower stamp from "Button Buddies," sentiment stamp from "Something to Celebrate."  Isn't the Daffodil Delight/Baja Breeze combo amazing? 

Supplies used:  All supplies from Stampin' Up; sentiment stamp from "Word Play." 

PARTY!  Happy Birthday:
All supplies from Stampin' Up.  Sentiment from Itty Bitty Banners (and matching framelit.)  All other stamps from "Owl Occasions."  A lot of work went in to this card (and my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig saw a lot of mileage!) but the result is well worth it!

Lollipop card:  Cardstock by Bazzil; embossing folder by Sizzix; ribbon by Stampin' Up; twine by The Twinery.  I used a Gluber from Cosmo Cricket to create the lollipop.  

Sweet Baby:  
Supplies used:  All supplies from Stampin' Up except microbeads, from Walmart.  Rattle stamp from "Button Buddies" and sentiment from "Itty Bitty Banners." 

What kind of crafting have you been up to lately?  


  1. oh, so cute! I am "CASE"ing ideas for my girlfriend's baby shower ... am I UP to creating a shaker card ... not sure ... are you going to give me the dirty details on your blog? Only one way to find out ...
    thanks for the GREAT card.

    1. Hi Cory! Shaker cards are easy - there's a great tutorial here.

      I do mine a little bit differently -
      1. Stamp the image.
      2. Put on a foamy circle thing (from Stampin' Up - not sure what they're called or if they're even in stock anymore, but they're basically strips of foam adhesive cut into circles. You get a pack of six graduated circles in each package.)
      3. Add glitter/beads/whatever.
      4. Punch a piece of acetate as large as the outside of the circle and adhere to foam.
      5. Using circle punches, punch a circle 1/4" smaller than the outside, then punch the larger circle around that hole- you will punch out a 1/8" ring. Glue the ring on top of the acetate so the foam doesn't show. I use Tombow for this.
