Sea Street Stampin’ Up! Shaker Card

There’s been another run of little boys’ birthdays recently. I immediately thought of Stampin’ Up! ® Sea Street rubber stamp set (available in wood or clear) and shaker cards.

The outside of the card is made using the Stampin’ Up! Maritime Designer Series Paper. I usually have an aversion to cutting up DSP, but I’m trying to get over it! I’ve had this paper since the demonstrator pre-order back in June and not used it until now!

I loved making these cards and was really pleased with them. My 5 year old son, however, was totally unimpressed, said they were boring and demanded I make cards with race cars on them instead! Luckily the recipient liked them (or at least the Mum did lol!).

I put gold glitter in one of them, but it kept falling out every time I shook the card so I decided not to for these two. I cut out all the little crabs, lobster, star fish and anchor by hand.

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s projects.  Don’t forget I will be moving my blog soon to http://bedlamandbutterflies.co.uk.

Stampin’ Up!’s Four Feathers Birthday cards

Stampin’ Up!’s Four Feathers

Wow – I can’t believe it’s November already! Today’s projects are the same card in two different colour schemes. I was inspired by a Christmas tag on Pinterest. I thought Stampin’ Up!’s Four Feathers rubber stamp set and matching Feathers framelits (available as a bundle) would would be perfect instead of the holly leaves.

What do you think? I love both, but I do like the splash of red on the Kraft version.

I’m in the middle of making some Christmas cards in this style and these colour combinations too.

I’ll post the Christmas version later in the week. Now there’s a challenge to myself to get them finished!

We’re now in to the second month of our 3.5 month build. It’s very exciting but it is keeping me distracted and away from crafting! And if that wasn’t enough I’m also trying to move my blog! I’m going to try to migrate my email followers over but I will post the address on here when its ready. So if you want to make sure you keep getting my blog posts then please sign up (again) via the new page!

Thanks for stopping by. See you soon
