Sunshine & Friendship

Today is the birthday of a very special lady.  She’s the type of person everyone should have in their life – bright, witty, amazing & kind to a fault.

She’s a fellow lover of paper, so I wanted to make something a little bit special for her.  Lucky I had new products to help!!!


I may have let out a small squeal when I saw that Stampin’ Up! was releasing a mason jar stamp set & matching framelit set.  Mason jars are super trendy and make great card subject.

For this card, I used the Everyday Jars Framelits as a vase for my flowers.  To add that special touch I wanted, I used the framelit set to maximum potential and layered the shaker card piece in the middle of the jar while I was cutting it.

Add a piece of window sheet, some of the new Foam Adhesive Strips and some sequins (retired in this case but the colours worked perfectly!) and you’ve got a fabulous shaker jar.

The floral component of my card comes from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits die set.  How lovely are the ‘swirly’ flowers?  And a ‘swirly’ butterfly… magic!

The whole card comes together perfectly with the Blooms & Bliss DSP (perhaps my fave new DSP at this point… if a papercraft Mummy can have favourites!).

I’ve used the rip & flip technique to show off both sides of the DSP.  The colours, patterns and design are fabulous!!!


Happy Birthday to Liz – hope you have a great day, filled with all things wonderful including getting to play with your new birthday presents (glad you knew what you wanted).  You deserve it!  Kelly x
