4. Birthday Chicks by My Favourite Things. A Shaker and Pop-up Card ๐ŸŽˆ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿง

 Hello everyone, welcome to my blog thank you for visiting!

When I saw these Birthday Chicks stamps by My Favourite Things I just had to have them in my collection. I absolutely love these chicks and the other cupcake stamps included in the set.

I started off with die-cutting the Wish sentiment by My Favourite Things (MFT) on some white card stock and then mounted some acetate to the back to create my window.

Next I applied some foam tape around the window, this will allow some room for the confetti to move around as it is going to be shaker card.

For my filler I used some polka parade sprinkles along with some chunky glitter by Lawn Fawn.

I took a piece of grey coloured card stock which I trimmed to be smaller than the card stock I used to die-cut the Wish sentiment on. I used one of the smallest dies from my pop-up trio creative cuts dies from MFT as I wanted to have some chicks to pop-up as the card opens.

I then used my glue tape to add this piece of card stock behind the card stock to create my shaker card.

Finally I stamped, coloured all my chicks in Copic markers and fussy cut them all out.

I used some foam adhesives to adhere these chicks around the sentiment and inside the card too:

To complete the wish sentiment, I added the make a and birthday chick sentiment from the same stamp set and the Yay!Yay!Yay! mini sentiment inside the card again with my Stamp Perfect platform. This allows me to correctly align the sentiments.

I used some Sweet Pea crystals I got from Little things from Lucy's Cards for embellishments, gluing them on with some multi matte medium and then finally added some Wink of Stella shimmer to all the chicks party hats, cupcakes and the candles. 

I hope you like my shaker card and thank you for reading my blog!

3: Sweetest Flavour by Lawn Fawn and Sweet Treats by Clearly Besotted๐Ÿฆ

Hello and Welcome to my blog!

A just because card for my sweet niece Bella who loves Ice Cream ๐Ÿฆ

I started off with initially stamping the ice cream stamp from Sweet Treats stamp set by Clearly Besotted using Versamark watermark ink and then set this with my heat tool and white glowing pearl embossing powder from Sweet Dixie. I used two Distress inks namely Spun sugar and Shaded lilac to bring out the ice cream stamps as the heat embossed areas resisted the ink.

Next I went onto stamping some ice cream cones from the Sweetest flavour stamp set by Lawn Fawn.
I coloured using Copic Ciao marker pens, and then die-cut them with the coordinating die-set.

I used the sentiment from the same set, stamping it onto some plain black card, repeating the process for embossing but this time using the Opaque Vanilla White embossing powder by Wow.

I finished off the card by adding some Polka Parade sprinkles from Little things from Lucy's Cards and of course finally some shimmer from my Wink of Stella Pen.

2: As Cute As Can Be by Clearly Besotted and Belated Birthday by Lawn Fawn ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿง๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽ

Hi there, thank you for visiting my blog!

I was inspired by Michelle from The Card Grotto to create this card, I started off by creating my background with blending distress inks along with the Building Blocks stencil by Clearly Besotted. 
I used dried marigold and spun sugar distress ink for this:

Next I stamped my cute critters onto some Copic friendly card stock. I coloured these in with some Copic Ciao markers and I fussy cut them all out. 

I took some plain black card stock and stamped my sentiment using Versamark watermark ink and some Wow Embossing Powder called vanilla white opaque, and set this using my heat tool. 

I assembled all my critters and the sentiment with some foam adhesives. 

For some finishing touches I added some shimmer using Spectrum Noir Sparkle.

Once again thank you for visiting my blog hope you enjoyed reading and hope you like my card :)

1: Hello Cupcakes and Sweet Treats by Clearly Besotted๐Ÿง๐Ÿฆ›

Hello there, thank you for visiting my blog today.

This card was one of my very first card creations which features the Hello Cupcake and Summer Treats stamp set from Clearly Besotted.

I was inspired by Amanda from the Little Crafty Pill, in particular her Cute Birthday Card.

I started off by stamping the little cupcakes from Summer Treats stamp set onto some Neenah Classic solar white card stock with some acrylic stamping blocks from Papermania. I coloured these using some Faber-Castell Felt tip pens.

I added some vellum paper on top of the card stock. I went onto stamping the three cute hippos from the Hello Cupcake stamp set. I used Faber-Castell felt tip pens and my Prismacolour Premier colouring pencils for these and then fussy cut them out. Once cut I stuck these in place using my foam adhesives to give it a three-dimensional look.

Next I then used some grey card stock and embossed the Hello Cupcake sentiment from the same stamp set as the hippos using the some Sweet Dixie White Glowing embossing powder. I added some shimmer using the Wink of Stella pen over the top to give it a metallic finish. I also added some shimmer effect using this pen on the cupcake itself and some little silver gems to each cupcake as some final finishing touches.

I hope you like my card and thank you for reading my blog!
