I’ve had some fun playing with The Stamp Market’s Hip Hip Hooray stamps and dies. At first glance it’s a basic set but there is so much you can do with it. I have a couple more cards that I will post individually. This first one is a simple shaker card that I think is very classy and can be gender neutral depending on the shaker bits.
The first thing I did was cut the front panel from Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock with the largest die from MFT’s stitched rectangle dies-Set 1. To make the cut-outs I used the candle die. I used a pencil and ruler to mark the center point for the center candle and then marked at .75″ intervals for the other four candles.
I stamped the “happy” and “birthday” and die cut them with the coordinating dies and then die cut the same words from gold glitter paper. I glued the stamped pieces on top of the gold ones with a little offset to create sort of a drop shadow.
I also die cut the candle flames out of gold glitter paper and glued them above the candles. I used Scotch Double-Sided Foam Tape for my shaker. It’s still my favorite foam tape. I filled the shaker with some old Stampin’ Up! sequins from my stash. I mounted my shaker onto a card base made from Lawn Fawn Black Licorice card stock. I really like the weight of this 100lb cardstock.
That’s it for today. I think this is about as simple a card as I can make. I hope you like it and look out for the next two cards which are totally different. Thanks for stopping by!
