Build a Birdcage

This was one of the cards that we made a week or two back using the stamp set Build a Birdcage. I've cased it from Anna Bastel. The stamp set is photopolymer so is very easy to line up without the use of a stamp-a-ma-jig or any other tool. There are 16 stamps altogether with the message Hi There! Perfect for so many occasions. 


Stamp set: Build a Birdcage
Ink: Early Espresso, Island Indigo
Card: Whisper White
Designer Paper: Blooms and Bliss
Accessories: Linen Thread, Sequins (retired)

Cool Treats Shaker Card

This was one of the shaker cards we made the other night at class. I'm really loving all the coordinating products in the Cool Treats suite (pages 32 and 33 of the Occasions catalogue). There's the stamp set, framelits dies, designer paper, sprinkles embellishments and washi tape, which all go together. And, we used it all!


Don't forget that if you purchase the bundle (stamp set and framelits dies) then you save 10% which is a bargain at $99.75. Then, if you add the sprinkles embellishments ($12) then you'll be able to choose something for free out of the Sale-a-Bration catalogue too :-)



And, see the washi tape on the inside of the card:


Stamp: Cool Treats
Ink: Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, Crumb Cake
Card: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Watermelon Wonder
Designer Series Paper: Tasty Treats Specialty
Accessories: Sprinkles Embellishment, Whisper White Thick Bakers Twine, Window Sheets, Foam Adhesive Strips
Tools: Big Shot, Layering Ovals Framelits, Frozen Treats Framelits Dies

Take a look at the other shaker card we made HERE.

Don't forget that the hostess code for February is: WRUUE3WM

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hey Chick Shaker Card

We had an awesome afternoon on Saturday at a Shoebox Swap that our upline Jacque organised. We made some lovely projects and this is the one that I presented which I'd cased from Kate Morgan (a demonstrator in Melbourne). I love how it came out and I'd forgotten just how easy it is to make a shaker card especially now that we have the foam adhesive strips. We used the cute and very popular Hey Chick stamp set that you can earn for FREE while Sale-a-Bration is on, just by spending $110 (less shipping). I think that this might be the technique next months class, so keep an eye on the right hand side of my blog for class updates.





Stamp Set: Hey, Chick (Sale-a-bration FREE stamp set)
Cardstock: Basic Gray, Delightful Dijon, Whisper White
Inks: Delightful Dijon, Basic Black

AccessoriesWindow Sheet, Foam Adhesive Strips 
Tools: Big Shot, Hexagon EF, Layering Circle Framelits, Watercolour Pencils, Aqua Pen 




January is my birthday month, so not only is it Sale-a-Bration, but I'm also giving the gifts! 

So how do you get a gift from me?  
  • Place an order for $110 or more at my online store
  • use the hostess code YYCDM6XK  (January only) during check out 
  • Your gift will be randomly selected and sent from me, so won't be included in your order from Stampin' Up!
