Cupcake Shaker

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built and this week it is a fan favorite: Anything Goes!! And here is the card I created for your inspiration:

I created this fun shaker card for a teen at our church who is celebrating her 17th birthday this week.  The happy birthday paper has been sitting on my desk (you may remember it from the past two weeks), so I decided to use it again.  I also used a coordinating paper for the cupcake liners.  I just love paper piecing these liners; it's a great way to add interest.  I added a mix of pink , green and teal sequins inside the shaker and glued some of the pink mix to the surface of the card, so there is some interest even while it's not shaking.
I decided to go with the slimline style because I had an envelope this size that just needed to be used!  Plus, the length gives way more room for yummy cupcakes!  For the sentiment, I did a little creative masking to use the "happy" and "birthday" from the belated birthday sentiment "I always remember . . ."  I've been seeing this fun idea round about on a bunch of blogs: Just Stash January (where you go the whole month of January without buying ANY new supplies--use what you have!) and decided to play along.  We all have so many unused goodies languishing away in our craft rooms.  Let's pull them out and show them some love.  Everything I used today is more than a couple years old, except the slimline die--I've only had that for a couple months.  I have a confession: I did purchase a die set already this month, but it was before I found out about the challenge and I had a gift certificate, so I only spent a little on it.  I will also wait until January is over to use it so I don't mess up the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will hop over to the House blog to see the rest of the DT's creations and then get inky and play along with us.  And if you need any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your ENTIRE order coupon code over in my left sidebar.

Who doesn't love cupcakes -especially if you are 17. Love your challenge BUT - I have already bought a "few" things. (I won't tell if you won't). Love how you made it a shaker card - and perfect color sequins. You have gotten a lot of mileage out of your birthday paper, great job.
