STAMPlorations Birthday Blog Hop

Hi STAMPlorations fans, it's day 3 of the birthday blog hop and wow, how amazing has the hop been so far?

I have 2 projects to share with you, first up is a cute birthday card made using the Gift-Builder-1 die set

I chose to go with teal and chocolate browns for this card, the gift builder is a fantastic die set, the dies cut so cleanly and the card releases straight away from the die.  I used the Happy Birthday Stamp Set for the sentiment.

My second project is a shaker card made with the shaker balloon - star die set.

I used the shaker balloon to create 3 shakers in the cards and filled the void with spaghetti beads, I also added a couple of non shaker balloon.  The sentiment is Bold-Sentiments-Charming

Now's the time to pop over to the STAMPlorations blog and take part in the giveaway.

Pretty in Pink - Altenew Garden Treasure.

Hey there, It feel like such a long time since I last posted a card that wasn't a DT project and yesterday I had a few hours with my daughter where we sat stamping and laughing together and it was wonderful.

I have had the Garden Treasure stamp set in my stash for a couple of months now and haven't got round to using it so decided that I should use it for this card.

I didn't have any particular occasion to create for some I went with a sentiment that could be used for many occasions.

I used Altenew Crisp Inks along with the Garden Treasure stamp set to create the card, My card is a 4.25"x 5.5" side opening card, I like cards that are hinged on the side like a cheque book as they are just a little different.  My sentiment was stamped onto black card and heat embossing in White.

It's a very striking card and although not my usual style I really like it.

I have a busy week of blog posts coming up to share with you from 4 different companies, one of which is a blog hop with prizes up for grabs so be sure to check back during the week for inspiration and crafty fun.
