Stampin' Up! Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop August Edition Shakin' It Up with Shaker Cards!

Hey there! Welcome to the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop! Our theme this month is "Shakin' It Up with Shaker Cards!" As you visit each blog on the hop you will see lots of fun ideas and probably learn a tip or two along the way!


I decided to use the new "Shake & Celebrate' from the upcoming Holiday Catalog, which you can order from on September 1st. I also gave this card to my daughter, Kimberly, for her birthday! I love it when a project does "double-duty" for me!


With my box of Holiday Catalog pre-order on hand, it was fun to play with new stuff while creating!


After cutting the four cake layers all at once with a new Shaker Shapes Framelit, which is bundled with the Shake & Celebrate stamp set, I then embossed the Sweet Sugarplum layer with the new Pretty Paisleys folder. I stamped the cake stand with Rich Razzleberry ink.


To give a look of frosting, I added lines of connected pearls,  included in the Pearls Basic Jewels Embellishment pack. So handy when you don't want to have to take the time to place a lot of pearls in a row!


I covered the openings with a window sheet, framed the cake outline with Foam Adhesive Strips, then added a mixture of Metallic Sequins and Holiday Catalog Mica Flakes! After removing the backing from the foam strips I added a square of scrap white card stock to close up the window before adhering to the card front.


Inside I used a sentiment from Grateful Bunch and added blooms from the Holiday Catalog set, Paisleys and Posies.

Here's the supply list for what's available to order today in my online store:

(you will be able to order the Holiday Catalog products on September 1!)

Now it's time to move on to Judy Garza's blog, Stamping With Judy G!



You can also go back and see what Laura Milligan has created on I'd Rather "Bee" Stampin!


That's all for now, until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! Day!
