Birthday Wishes Shaker Card for Whimsy Stamps

I've got yet another shaker card for you today for the current challenge at Sister Act Card Challenge. I used the super cute Thanks a Million stamp set from Whimsy Stamps for the presents. The sentiment comes from a couple of other Whimsy sets -- Say What and Happy Everything. Isn't it great that the sets work so well together?

To construct my card, I first took my die with the 4 circles and made some pencil marks to help make sure that I stamped my presents in the right place. Some fun sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were added as the shaker element.

Thanks for your visit. Hugs!

Birthday Balloons

I've got a fun birthday card for you today that features some fun products from MFT and Verve.  I started by stamping my card base with the Happy Background cling stamp from MFT. I then die cut three balloons. 

Originally, I was planning on having a sentiment elsewhere on the card but then realized that I didn't really want a sentiment competing with the word background. That's when it hit me to stamp it directly on the balloons. I know, not a big deal but for me and my brain, it kind of was. :)  I then decided to add some matching sequins to each of the balloons for something extra. 

As always, I truly appreciate you stopping by. Happy Tuesday.

Celebrate Today

Today's card is one that I gave to my daughter on the day of our reunion last month. I wasn't sure exactly what sentiment I wanted and nothing quite seemed right.  But really, are there the right words for meeting the child you placed for adoption 20 years ago?  In the end, I decided that the day was a day to be celebrated, hence the sentiment.  

I've popped the main panel up with foam tape and matted the white panel with just a touch of black card stock. I've used my Rosie Posie set before but I don't think I've ever used the large images in it that I used today. I can't wait to make some more cards with these stamps.

As always, thanks for taking time out of your day to stop by and see what I'm up to.
