Today’s card using the ‘Celebrate Today’ Stamp Set is a shaker card, I have not done one of these before but I thought the balloon theme lent itself to a shaker card. I trawled the internet for some inspiration to find out how to do this and came across a video which I have linked further down this post.
It features window sheet and is based on a card by Connie Stewart of Simply Simple Stamping.
The card features a balloon but also has lots of stars, which was inspired by one of the stamps in the set.
The Celebrate Today Stamp Set was introduced in the 2015 Occasion catalog back in January – and it was included in the 2015 – 2016 Annual Catalog that came out in June. I was looking for inspiration for a birthday card and picked up the set….. just to see what ‘vibes’ it would give me………. although the set has a balloon theme it also has a bunch of greetings that would celebrate most life experience occasion…… birthday, baby, wedding and graduation.
While I made the birthday card – which I will share, I also thought it would be a great opportunity to create a week of cards using this set……. so here is #1……..
In keeping with what is becoming a little bit of a series…….. using one card layout but showing that they can easily be used for different occasions by simply changing the sentiment. Stampin’ Up!’s wonderful variety of stamp sets makes it so easy!
