Birthday Celebration Time Shaker Card

Birthdays are Celebration Time!  Show them you are ready to celebrate them with this fabulously fun handmade shaker birthday card! Thanks for the idea Terri!

stampin up celebration time handmade birthday card with garden trellis TIEF and sequins by Candy Michael of Candy Stampers

I used our Clear Envelope to create the “shaker” pocket. Stamp your Whisper White square, cut the envelope creating a pocket, add in your sequins & tape the excess of the Clear Envelope to the back. This will make the sequins move & shake around in the pocket. I used Tear & Tape to adhere this square piece to the Lemon Lime Twist card stock. Lastly, I put Dimensionals on the back of the scalloped piece to pop it off the embossed front panel. I used a glue dot to adhere the bow to the front.

Santa’s Sleigh Framed Holiday Art

I am excited to share this framed holiday art project I made for a class & a craft fair.  I have used these stamps and die cuts to make many cards but as you see. They can also be used for home decor. The jingle bells were added using jute tied on with varied sized bells. The bells used were a mix of silver & gold. This project was loved by all!

This project started out with a standard 5″ x 7″ frame. I cut a layer of Garden Green card stock at 7″ x 5″ and a layer of Whisper White card stock (CS) 6 3/4″ x 4 3/4″.  I used my Big Shot and the Santa’s Sleigh Framelit dies to create the scene.  The sleigh was cut from Cherry Cobbler CS, Crumb Cake CS was used for the reindeer, Garden Green CS for the tree and Crushed Curry CS for the star on the tree.  Tombo Multipurpose glue was used to assemble the scene on the Whisper White layer of CS. The sentiment was stamped in Basic Black in using a sentiment from the (retired) Wonderful Year stamp set.  To finish it off, I used some linen tread wrapped around the frame to attach some jingle bells to the exterior of the frame.

I hope that this project inspires you to break out your stamps and framelits and create some holiday decor for this Christmas season and all year long.

I am including a list of supplies used to make this project with links to my store where you can purchase these items online.  Feel free to contact me with any questions or for help in placing your order.  I’d love to see you at Candy’s Stamping Studio in Powell, Ohio for a class.

Happy Stamping,
