September is a month of many things in my world, and one of the fantastically fun things for me is: STAMPtember from Simon Says Stamp! Today is the Blog Party!! 🙂
Today, I’m sharing a card I made using the new Scripty Happy Birthday Die. This Happy Birthday die can pretty much be used for all Birthday cards, don’t you think? 🙂 Check it out HERE.
This Scripty Happy Birthday die has the back plate, which makes it PERFECT for shaker cards! 🙂
I added a bazillion little sequins and bits from my stash. I can’t even tell you where they are from, because I just kept throwing colors in! 🙂
I scored the panel and added some stitching for added texture. I would super love to receive a colorful happy card like this, so I’m hoping someone else will too!
Be sure to check out the SSS Blog HERE to get in on all the prize action, links, and PARTY!! 🙂
You can find allllllll things STAMPtember HERE! And Simon Says Stamp HERE!
Thanks for Simon Says Stamp for having me along to celebrate this STAMPtember! ❤
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your STAMPtember!
Are you ready for the weekend? I am! Though I have lots to do, so I probably shouldn’t be–haaaaa!
Today I’m sharing a card using the NEW Paper Smooches Tiny Stars! OH my stars! I love how festive this shaker turned out! 🙂 You cannot beat having this little die around for stars o’plenty!
For the frame I used Paper Smooches Postage Stamp dies. The background is the new Stitched Square Die. (I dry embossed that. Those dies are probably my favorite for doing embossing! Perfect texture 🙂 ) The Hello is another favorite die from PS (Layered Hello Die), because you can use just one *hello* or layer it! 😉
I hope you have had a minute to check out all the new stitching dies from Paper Smooches!
Also, be sure to pop over to the Paper Smooches Blog and check out Kim’s wonderfully exciting news about her family’s new adventure! I’m so very happy for her! ❤ ❤
Hope your weekend is AWESOME! Jill 🙂
Hooray! The November release from Paper Smooches can be found HERE! Oh goodness, super fun!
I thought I’d share this shaker card I made with two new goodies! The new Layered Hello Dies and Sympathy Sampler. The Sympathy Sampler works well for other things too. 😉
Eeeeep!I love that HELLO! Kim has the best writing! I haven’t made a shaker card in sooo long! So this was cool to do. 😉
Hope you enjoy your week! And Happy Halloween to those little trick or treaters! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
Fortunately, I have not been voted off the island as February Guest Designer at Paper Smooches!! 😉 Such fun to use some of my favorites!! Hop over to the PS Blog today!
I will not mention how long this first card took to land on. I tinkered and tinkered and tinkered, and then #boom. Funny how the simplest things take me quite a long time! 😉
The sentiments and fonts in the new Fun & Flirty stamp set can truly hold a card, as you can see here: I mean, really. That’s fun. 🙂
For my second card this week, I used the fun new Wine Glass die! Got things shakin’! 🙂
You are Ridiculously Amazing. My sentiments exactly. Go figure! 🙂 I’m clearly in a Distress Ink watercolor mode, and the results are fun. I decided I don’t enjoy when I make cards too “neat”, so this technique is fitting for me to use! If that makes any sense, at all. LOL 🙂
Love Love Love this Fun & Flirty sentiment set! So fortunate to have it on my desk! 🙂
Paper Smooches supplies: Fun & Flirty, and Wine Glass die.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll see you again next Wednesday for my last Paper Smooches Guest Designer post. Wow, that’s crazy–February is flyin’! 🙂 🙂
MFT Sketch Challenge #239 on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration is starting TODAY!
Here is this week’s sketch:This is my card for the week:
I so enjoy this little sunny dude! 🙂 The Abstract stencil and background…well, I’ve mentioned my adoration of these many-a-times too! I stamped and embossed the Build-able Blooms for the sun. It ended up a little more subtle than intended, but, alas 🙂
I squeaked in a second card. This one was made in probably five different sit-downs, so it feels a bit disjointed. But, meh, I think it’s kinda fun still 🙂
…and I think my stitching went a bit awry 🙂
My first card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things:
Today starts Color Challenge #22 on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog. Head on over there and see what our wickedly talented team busted out this week!
MFTC&I Blog–sure to be FABulous!
Here’s my card for the week:
I double die cut the Jumbo Dot Cover Up after inlaying the first set of circles. When you do this, you can’t exactly tell where you are cutting because the die is solid, but it worked out. 🙂Polka dots… love ’em! 🙂
I made a second card with some left over dots. It’s been a week of “hmmm, that’s not quite what I was thinking it would look like…”. Too funny. It’s still fun to send a shaker, right?
I popped up the black front panel in hopes that Sour Apple would show through the window a bit, but…not so much. Ha!! 😉It’s already growing on me more though. 🙂

Today on the My Favorite Things Blog is the Final Day of SHAKER CARDS!! Confetti everywhere this week!! 🙂
Today’s idea was to show the inside of the card…a Peek-a-boo, if you will. I ended up making the inside basically “the card”. It’s funny how things happen. 😉 The scalloped circle is actually from the Die-namics LLD Cupcake Stand set and works fabulously as a centerpiece, don’t you think? 🙂 The tricky part on this one was hiding the foam. I didn’t completely excel on that task, but didn’t want to toss it either. Once again, a “handmade” card right? 😉
This card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things: Die-namics LLD Cupcake Stand, Die-namics Stitched Circle STAX, Photo Booth, In & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle STAX (dies), BG Diagonal Lines Background, CS True Friends (stamps), Black Licorice (hybrid ink), Steel Grey (dye ink), Bubble Gum, Steel Grey, Ripe Raspberry (card stock). 🙂
Hope you too have enjoyed the shaker fun this week!! There are PRIZES each day! 😉
