Stampin’ Up! Celebration Time Birthday

Happy Friday, y’all!  I hope your week has gone well – and that you’ve got something fun planned for the weekend!  

I played with a new bundle for today’s card – it’s the Celebration Time bundle and I think it’s got a lot of fun possibilities!  This card ended up with a shaker element and some Whole Lot of Lovely DSP.  Take a look-see:

I played along with a couple of challenges this week.  The first is the CAS-ual Fridays Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.  I love these!

For my card, I went from bottom left to top right, across the diagonal.

And I played along with the Word Challenge at Just Us Girls.

I started with a piece of striped paper from the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP, matted on Pool Party, for the card front.  The middle layer is a piece of Whisper White, dry embossed in the Polka Dot Basics TIEF, matted on more Pool Party and adhered to the card front at a diagonal.  I made the shaker using dies in the Celebration Time Thinlits.  I cut a solid tag in Whisper White, and a detailed tag in Powder Pink card stock.

Using some scraps of Pool Party card stock, I adhered a few squares behind the die cut presents with a little Liquid Glue.  Then I added a small square of Window Sheet with some more Liquid Glue.

To build the shaker, I put a little pile of Metallic Assortment Sequins on the white tag, and then used Foam Adhesive Strips around the back edge of the Powder Pink tag to adhere the two pieces together.  Here’s a tip.  Although I used the strips all the way around the edge of the tag, I added an additional piece across the tag – just under the top of the presents.  That made a smaller area for my sequins – ensuring that they’ll stay up in the window!

For the sentiment, I inked the image from Celebration Time in Versamark, then stamped it on a piece of Tranquil Tide card stock.  I sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.  Then I cut the sentiment out with the handy die in the Celebration Thinlits, and adhered it to the tag with some Liquid Glue.  How fun is that?!?

I ran four lengths of Pool Party Solid Baker’s Twine thru the handy top hole in the tag and tied it together with a double length of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine.  Then I adhered the tag to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to align another sentiment from Celebration Time on a Whisper White panel.  I used my Pool Party and Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Markers to color the gifts, and my Tranquil Tide marker to color the sentiment – coloring directly on the rubber stamp.  Then I added a couple of bows to the top of the gifts in Pool Party and Powder Pink.

I SNAILd the panel to a Pool Party mat and into my Tranquil Tide card base, popped my card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another little group of Celebration Time presents – I used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig again to just get the tops of the gifts…

…and added a little more Whole Lot of Lovely DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the dies in the Celebration Thinlits – they’re so cute and perfect for making tags – to go on cards like I’ve done here, or to add to gifts!  And the stamps in Celebration Time mesh with the dies just perfectly.  Hope you like!
