Just Add Ink #404 | Shaker

Are you up for a fun weekend challenge?

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!!!

If you’ve only made it through a few posts or you’re starting here, make sure to keep pressing next to jump through the whole Crew. The inspiration is “perfect”!

From here, you’re off to visit the gorgeous Mickey Roberts in the US.

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop | Picture Perfect Birthday

Hello!  The Stamping Sunday Design Team would usually hop together on the fourth Sunday of the month, but that’s Christmas Eve, so we’ve brought it forward a week – hopefully you don’t mind!!

Thanks to Sara Levin for all her wonderful work coordinating the Stamping Sunday blog hops in 2017.  What a pleasure to hop with such a talented group of stampers!

The theme for this hop is the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set & coordinating products from the suite.  This range will be available in the upcoming Occasions catalogue!  Get ready for some sensational sneak peeks!

To see a list of everyone joining in this week’s hop, including our marvellous guest designer – Brian King – click on the cute blue frog.

My first project for today is a card for my brother who turns 32 next week.  How convenient that the gorgeous Picture Perfect Party DSP features balloons in the shape of a ‘3’ & a ‘2’.

One side of the DSP is photographic images – like the balloons!  And other side is printed patterns like the stripes and Lemon Lime Twist pattern.

I’m probably never likely to add ‘celebrate the good stuff’ to a card, so I cut this sentiment up to have ‘celebrate’ on its own.  This way it’ll get lots of use!

The photo DSP adds such a realistic element to your projects.  Wait til you see it in person – it has a definite wow factor!


Although this set is very clearly birthday themed, the second project I’m sharing with you is actually for Christmas!  I always like to be able to find the alternative uses in my Stampin’ Up! products.

The gift bow is fantastic for all gift giving occasions – including on this Christmas gift card holder.

This gift card hold is simple to create.  Cut a piece of cardstock to 9-1/4″ x 3″ and score at 3-1/2″ & 7-1/2″.  Add a strip of DSP to the inside (9″ x 2-3/4″).  Decorate the front with coordinating cardstock & DSP (1″ & 3/4″ wide) and the cute bow from Picture Perfect Birthday.  The sentiment is perfect for this card!

You don’t have to add a Bunnings gift card to the middle – but the colour combination works well!!!

I also used the bow as a ‘star’ on the top of my Christmas tree for the card!
