Congratulations Grandma Shaker Card

Stitched Star Dies Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Today's Shaker Card is for a co-worker who became a grandma for the first time.  What a joyous occasion!  Such a momentous event calls for something fun and what's more fun than a Shaker Card?   

Would you like to learn how to make your own Shaker Cards?  Watch the video tutorial below.

As I mentioned in my video tutorial, the Stitched Stars Dies were first introduced in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  I'm happy to announce that even though the Holiday Catalog is retired, the Stitched Stars Dies carried over and are still available to purchase.

Today's cards were made with Grandmas in mind, but they could easily be converted into a fun Baby Card.

Wedding Favors Meant to Bee

DIY Wedding FavorsHello Friends,

I was talking to a dear friend the other day about her daughter's upcoming wedding.  So naturally, our conversation turned to DIY Wedding Favor Ideas.  I suggested that she think about using the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Dies to make her Wedding Favors.  The discussion was still on my mind when I created the Meant to Be Wedding Favors for today's blog post.

DIY Wedding Favors Tips

I started by cutting my Mini Curvy Keepsakes Boxes from Golden Honey Designer Paper (Free Sale-a-Bration Gift).  See the video at the end of this post to see just how easy these boxes are to make.  

Next, I stamped and heat embossing my "Meant to Be" tags using the Meant to Bee stamp set.  After heat embossing, I punched my tags using the Label Me Fancy Punch.

To complete my tags, I stamped black and white bees using the Honey Bee Stamp set.  After they were stamped, I cut the bees out using my Detailed Bees Dies.

I wasn't quite ready to stop crafting, so using the same supplies I made a matching Anniversary Card.  The little flower was super simple to make using the Small Blossom Punch (Free Sale-a-Bration Gift).

Here's a peek at the inside of my Anniversary Card.

The Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies (#150644) were carried over from the 2019 Holiday Catalog because they were so popular.  Watch the video above to see just how easy they are to put together.  I love that you can get 4 Mini Curvy Keepsake Boxes from a single 12" x 12" sheet of paper!

Happy Birthday to You

Happy Birthday to You Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Do you enjoy coloring beautiful images? What do you think about free paper crafting supplies?  Meet the Happy Birthday to You stamp set by Stampin' Up!.  This gorgeous stamp set is a Sale-a-bration stamp set for 2020 which means that it can be yours for free with a qualifying order during Sale-a-Bration 2020 (January 3-March 31, 2020).  Let's take a closer look at today's projects.


Happy Birthday to You Stampin' Up!

For this first card, I colored the flowers with Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends.  Then, I colored the leaves with Old Olive Stampin' Blends and the cake with Petal Pink Stampin' Blends.  And finally, I colored the cake stand with Balmy Blue Blends.   Thanks to the hinged system on my Stamparatus (stamp positioning tool), I was able to stamp a stack of "celebrates" in about 2 minutes flat!

I'm really crushin' on the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  Scallops and stitching, be still my beating heart.  Plus, the rectangular shape makes them so, so useful for cards, scrapbooks, and packaging.

Colors for my Gift Card were Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, Pool Party, Soft Sea Foam, So Saffron and Lovely Lipstick.
