Just Add Ink are adding….. {SHAKERS}

Image may contain: text

There’s something about sequins, sparkles & moving pieces that take a card to the next level!

See all the design team shaker cards on the Just Add Ink Blog.

You can also add your own shaker card to the challenge gallery.

I was inspired by the works of Jackie Aitken this week – a fellow JAI design team member.  Jackie has been posting some seriously awesome pocket cards lately and I wanted to try it out!

This is my version styled using the Picture Perfect Party suite…

The shaker element is hiding in the pocket….

A little unorthodox, but I’m planning for Miss Papercraft to use a sharpie and write the birthday message onto the vellum!!!

Did you spy the coordination between the Picture Perfect Party DSP – confetti photography & the circle shaker pieces.  Such a simple shaker insert to make using 3/4″ circles in the coordinating colours – Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, Peekaboo Peach & Whisper White.

The Picture Perfect Paper Ribbon was a late withdrawal from the Occasions catalogue due to supply issues.  It doesn’t matter though – it’s so easy to make using a strip of cardstock sewn down the middle & finished with paper snips.  Cute paper ribbon in any colour!!

Nothing says happiest birthday wishes like these colours do!  I can’t wait to make some more fun & bright pocket cards!!!

Stamp Review Crew | Picture Perfect Birthday

Can you believe it’s Monday again?   And the second Monday of the month, so I’m delighted to be hopping with the Stamp Review Crew.

The Stamp Review Crew is a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world who get together on the first and third Monday of each month and all create using the same stamp set.

Today we’re sharing ideas for the Picture Perfect Birthday set.  

You’ll find this gorgeous set on page 5 of the Occasions catalogue.  It’s part of the Picture Perfect Party suite – which really is ‘perfect’ because there’s a whole range of coordinating products to work with also!

This stamp set is a mix of fabulous sentiments (love those fonts) and cute party images!

I’ve made two cards to share with you today.  They both feature the Picture Perfect Party DSP – it’s too fun not to use!!!

The first one uses the cute “wonderful, brilliant, fabulous” sentiment and the candles

The sentiment is stamped in versamark, then heat embossed with white powder.  Then, using my Stampin’ Blends, I coloured over the wonderful, brilliant & fabulous.  Such an awesome way to add some pop to the sentiment.  After colouring, I liberally coloured the words with my Clear Wink of Stella pen.  Perhaps a bit too liberally – but can you ever have too much glitter???

Both my cards use the same colour combination – lifted from the colours in the DSP.

I think the catalogue lists Peekaboo Peach, but I’ve upped the intensity to Pumpkin Pie!


This is my second card.  I’ve added in a confetti throwing panda. I just love that sentiment!!!

He’s from the Party Pandas stamp set that you can select as your {FREE} Sale-A-Bration order with any $90 purchase.

Confetti tip: punch out perfect little confetti dots using the Cookie Builder punch.  Don’t try to add glue to the confetti and stick to your card.  Instead, dab tiny dots of tombow glue to your card and drop the confetti dots on top.  This will give you great placement and no mess (if you keep the dots of glue teeny tiny!).

Thanks for hopping with me today!!!
