Welcome Back to Theme Week!
Sweet Soiree’ Suite
Monday 1/8 – Saturday 1/13
Welcome back to Theme Week! On my Facebook page a few weeks ago I shared a shaker card I gave to my oldest brother for his birthday. Today I will share that card with you as well as the card I made from the piece I had left from the cut out.
1 – Fold a piece of 4.25” x 5.5” of Bermuda Bay card stock to create the card base.
2 – The background is created using Brusho Crystal Colour. I recently created a video on this technique that you can see on my blog post from January 2, 2018 (https://memoryinkers.blogspot.com/2018/01/amazing-you-sab-blog-hop.html) then I cut the cake shape from this design using the Sweet Cake Framelits Dies.
3 – Cut out the word Celebrate from the Sale-a-bration Celebrate You Thinlits Dies (available for FREE with a $100 product purchase!)
4 – Flip the above piece of card stock over and adhere a 4”2 piece cut from a Window Sheet to cover the cut-out shapes.
5 – I added a bit of flourish at place where the cake ‘layers’ would be by cutting a piece from the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers. It took some coaxing, but if you cut notches in it you can get it to shape the cake pretty well. Tip: Be sure to press this firmly into place as it may interfere with the shaker effect.
6– Over the Window Sheet place strips of Foam Adhesive Strips around the cake and word shapes. I separated them with a strip as well (see photo).
7 – Before removing the adhesive backing on the strips add a few Sequins to the ‘wells’ left by the adhesive strips. You can then remove the backing ad adhere some card stock to cover the openings. I find that cutting piece of card stock (something you would like to show through the as the background) I choose Whisper White for the cake and Myths & Magic 6”x6” Glimmer Paper behind the word.
8 – Adhere to the card front (using Foam Adhesive Strips on the edges to keep the card stock the same height as the shaker area.
9 – I cut the additional sentiments from the same Glimmer Paper using the other sentiments contained in the Sale-a-bration Celebrate You Thinlits.
I had the cake shape & word shapes sitting on my desk once I completed the above card and knew I couldn’t just recycle it.
1 – Using 4” x 5.5” piece of Thick Whisper White card stock to create card base.
2 – Stamp the sun-burst shape onto the card stock using Crushed Curry ink, approximately 1” from the top of the card.
3 – Adhere the ‘left over’ word to the top of the card front using Fine-tip Glue pen, or pressing into one of the Adhesive Sheets.
4 – Stamp the word You below the above using Bermuda Bay ink.
5 – Using the Big Shot Machine and Sweet Cake Framelits Dies cut the cake base (2 pieces) and bow from Silver Foil Paper.
6 – Add some icing to your ‘left over’ cake by covering it with the Sweet Soiree Decorative Masks and smearing Shimmery White Embossing Paste over the design of your choice (be sure to clean off your masks immediately!).
7 – Once the past dries add the cake base and bow to the cake and adhere to card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
8 – For additional bling you can add a Glitter Enamel Dot to the center of the bow.
Come back tomorrow to see a card CASE’d directly from the Occasions Catalog. It’s easier than you think!
Until Next time . . .
Hugs, Karie B.
