Happy Birthday Shaker Card

I made this Happy Birthday Shaker Card for my grandson’s birthday. It is pretty easy to make though it takes a little time. Kiev made the original Shaker Card design. I have now made two. This is a fairly quick and easy card to make. I will also show a picture of the other Shaker Card I made.

SUPPLIES:

Stamps: Big Wishes Rubber Wood-Mount #146422, Clear-Mount #146425
Ink: Blueberry Bushel
Cardstock: Whisper White
Real Red
Blueberry Bushel
Window Sheets #142314
Big Shot: Rectangle Stitched Framelits #148551
Maps etc Embossing Folder #146822
Eclectic Layers Thinlits #143774
Adhesives: Tombow Glue
Foam Adhesive Strips #141825

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Cut your Real Red card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″.

2. Cut your Blueberry Bushel card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Run through your Big Shot with the Maps Embossing Folder. Glue to your card base.

3. Choose two Rectangle Stitched Framelits for your frame. With the Larger of the two cut:
~one Whisper White to stamp on
~one Window Sheet

4. With both Framelits and Real Red cardstock:
~Lay both Framelits on the Real Red cardstock on your Big Shot Platform. Make the red line between them even. Cut out. I did have to crank them back and forth several times to get them to cut all the way through. To check if they are properly cut pick up both cutting plates with the cardstock and Framelits still inside.
~Flip over so you can see the bottom. If it has cut through all the way, then you are finished. If it does not look like it has cut through properly, then run through the Big Shot again with this bottom side up. I still ran it through a couple of times

5. Put a really thin line of Tombow Glue on the back of your Real Red frame. Carefully attach it to your Window Sheet lining up the corners and edges. Gently press the Frame to the Window Sheet. Set aside to dry.

6. Stamp Happy Birthday in Blueberry Bushel ink on the Whisper White Rectangle. I stamped it towards the top.

7. Put the Foam Adhesive Strip around the edges of the stamped Whisper White Rectangle. Make sure they are exactly on the edge as the Foam Strip is the same width at the Frame you cut. Also, make sure there are NO gaps between the Foam Adhesive Strips ends. Rub your Embossing Buddy on the Whisper White cardstock and the inside edges of the Foam Adhesive Strip. This helps keep the Shaker parts from sticking to the edges of the Foam Adhesive strips and helps them shake well.

8. Use the Eclectic Layers Framelit with all the diamond shapes to cut out all your diamond shapes that will go inside your Shaker Card. I cut two each from Real Red and Blueberry Bushel cardstock. While I am cutting them out I keep them in a bowl. Put them on the Whisper White stamped cardstock inside the Foam Adhesive Strips. This amount filled up the inside too much so a took a couple of big pinches out.

9. Peel off the backing from the Foam Adhesive Strips. Gently line up the Frame corners and edges with the Whisper White corners and edges. Press down firmly so the two attach well. Use Tombow Glue to attach your Shaker Part to your card front. Put a large stamp block or medium weight book on top of the whole card. This will help the Shaker Part lay flat and give the Glue time to set. Leave at least 5 minutes.

10. Your Happy Birthday Shaker Card is finished. Have some fun shaking it!

Here is a picture of another Shaker Card I made. I used Melon Mambo ink and Cardstock. I used the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper. I used sequins to shake. Make your OWN version.

Happy Birthday in Greens

My Daughter’s Birthday was Saturday.  Her favorite color is bright neon green.  So I made her card using Lemon Lime Twist, Granny Apple Green, and Call Me Clover.  She will enjoy the mix of the Stitched elements and the corrugated background.  This Color Combination is a little too bright for my taste, but she loved it! Choose your Birthday person’s favorite colors to make your version of this card.

3.  Stamp your sentiment on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock with Call Me Clover ink.  Cut it out with an Oval Stitched Shape Framelit.
4.  Cut out the largest Stitched Labels Framelit from Call Me Clover cardstock.
5.  Layer the sentiment and the Label with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Attach to card front with Tombow Glue.  Again, lay the blocks over the top for a few minutes.

Copper Tropical Man’s Birthday Card

I made this Copper Tropical Man’s Birthday Card for my son.  This was the first time he has been home for his birthday in many years.  It is always nice spending time with him.  In fact, he is hosting my websites.  It is great to have computer tech guys in the family.
Nathan's Birthday CardSUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Happy Birthday Gorgeous Photopolymer stamps #143662
Ink:  VersaMark
Cardstock:  Shaded Spruce
Copper Foil Sheets #142020
Printer Paper
Big Shot:  Tropical Thinlits #146831
Heat Embossing:  Copper Embossing Powder #141636
Embossing Buddy #103083
Heat Tool #149053

Stampin’ Dimensionals

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Shaded Spruce card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cur your Copper Foil Sheet at 4″ x 4″.  Center the square Tropical Thinlit and cut out with your Big Shot.
NOTE:  If you want to keep your Copper Foil Sheet shiny and smooth, use this Big Shot Sandwich:
~Big Shot Platform with Thin Die Adapter (Or Multipurpose Platform with all tabs closed)
~Bottom Cutting Plate
~Copper Foil Sheet shiny side up
~Tropical Thinlit
~Printer Paper touching shiny side of Copper Foil and Thinlit
~Top Cutting Plate
If you want a distressed Copper Foil look, leave out the Printer Paper and use your “well-loved” cutting plates.
3.  Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of your Copper Foil square.  Cut some Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals in half and put behind the leaves in the die cut.
4. Rub the front of your card with your Embossing Buddy to prevent random specks of embossing powder on your project.
~Lay your card base on a piece of clean printer paper.
~Lay your Copper Foil square on your card front to help determine where to stamp your sentiment.  I usually pay attention to the distance the bottom of the stamp is from the bottom of the card.
~Remove the Copper Foil square
~Stamp in VersaMark ink
~Dump Copper Embossing Powder over the stamped image area.  Dump the Embossing Powder back into the container.  Flick the back of your card front a couple of times to remove excess embossing powder.
~Melt the embossing powder with your Heat Tool until all the embossing powder is melted and shiny.
5.  Remove the backing from all the Stampin’ Dimensionals and attach your Copper Foil square to your card front.
Your Card is finished.

Happiest Birthday Flower DSP Card

I just LOVE the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (DSP) with all the beautiful Flowers to add to my cards.  The piece I used came with the center blank to add a sentiment.  It was even already in the rectangle shape so I just had to cut it out.  If you just stamp on the front it is truly a quick and easy card.  If you mess up the stamping, you can easily stamp on cardstock and cut it out to add to your card front.
Flower DSP CardSUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Picture Perfect Birthday Photopolymer #145519

3.  Cut your DSP at 3-1/4″ x 4-3/4″.  Make sure and trim off all the white around the edges or leave an equal white border around the edges.
4.  Stamp your sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink.
~You can stamp directly in the center of the DSP if you want.
~OR you can stamp on Whisper White cardstock, then cut out with the Stitched Shapes Oval.   Attach to your card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Both ways look great.
5.  Attach your DSP and Mossy Meadow layers together.  Then attach to your card base.
Your card is finished.

2.  Cut your Perfect Plum card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Run through your Big Shot with the Petal Burst embossing folder.  Glue to your card base.
3.  Stamp all three pandas on Whisper White cardstock leaving plenty of room to punch them out with the Starburst Punch.  You might need to stamp each image more than once, so use the Stamp-a-ma-jig so you can get the perfect stamped images.  Punch out each panda separately with the Starburst Punch.  Stamp the confetti in Perfect Plum ink as desired around the pandas.
4.  Stamp Happy Birthday twice in either Perfect Plum or Elegant Eggplant ink on Whisper White cardstock.  Punch out both sentiments with the Classic Label Punch.  Put three Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of each Classic Label.

6.  Punch a Balloon out of Wisteria Wonder cardstock.  Color it with the Rich Razzleberry Blends Markers.  I did the Dark against the left side, the Light over the rest, and made the “shine” by removing the color with the Color Lifter.
7.  Lay out your circles, balloon, and Happy Birthdays in the desired positions.  Attach the Circles and Happy Birthdays with the Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the Balloon.
8.  Tie a bow from the Baker’s Twine.  Attach it to the bottom of the balloon with either a Glue Dot or a small dot of Tombow Glue.
Your card is finished.
9.  Envelope Options:
~Emboss the envelope flap with the embossing folder
~Stamp either a panda or Happy Birthday onto the envelope flap.

2.  Put the Card together.
~Lay out the Snowflake and Oval Birthday on your card front to determine the position you want them in.
~Tie a bow from the copper Trim, if desired, and attach it to the Oval die cut.  An option for a man is to attach a strip of ribbon along the top of the Designer Series Paper instead of tying a bow, OR leave off the ribbon completely.  My guys don’t seem to mind the Copper Trim as it looks borwnish and metallic.
~Attach the Oval sentiment to the Snowflake with the Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Now put Glue Dots on the back of the Snowflak behind the Oval die cut.  Attach to card front.  Trim ribbon ends if necessary.
~Attach card front to card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I used 9 Stampin’ Dimensionals:  3 across the top, center, and bottom.
