card making :: yeti shaker card

With the cold weather upon us up here in the east coast I thought I’d give a nod to winter and share this yeti shaker card design.  This adorable yeti is a part of a Hero Arts stamp set that comes with a die cut, but you can learn how to create this shaker card by simply stamping.  With some pretty glitter and foam mounting adhesive, it’s easy to create window cards like this for any occasion.

Happy New Year, readers! I know, it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything on the blog but the end of 2015 was a busy one for this mama.  Let’s start off 2016 with a birthday card idea because well, there will always be birthdays.  🙂  This features a new stamp set by Stampin’ Up! that includes all of the sentiments and the confetti image used to create this colorful background.

This method of using one smaller element within a stamp set can be utilized for all sorts of occasions, not just birthdays.  Simply change the colors of ink pads used (think pastels for baby cards, autumnal tones for more masculine cards, etc.) and use any large sentiment in place of the birthday greeting.

Happy crafting!
