What's Shakin' Cupcake?

Hello friends!
Hope you are having a great week and have enjoyed your long weekend! :)
I am tired from working outside and ready to sit in the air conditioning for a while! LOL!

Today I wanted to share a really fun shaker card that was inspired by a design from the actual person that came up with the product ideas used on this card as well:
Super cute and fun, right?  I've used some fun and creative products from Whimsy Stamps that was designed by Nina-Maria Trapani. She is an artist and illustrator for Whimsy Stamps and if you've been following along with my blog, then you have seen the new releases every month that have been designed by her.

I am using some of the products from the May release on my design here today.  I've used the Shaker Builder-Sweetest Birthday die set along with the Sweetest Birthday sentiments set from the May release. I've also used the Get in Line stamp set (to create the gingham pink background).

I was very inspired by Nina-Maria's card and the video of her wonderful explanation on how to use this die set!  To see her card and a full explanation on using this die set, please CLICK HERE to see how I was inspired by her design!  Thanks to Nina for her inspiration! :)

The things that I've changed on my card design were some of the colors and I've also used some craft (fun) foam to cut the cupcake shape for my shaker portion as well as the scallop frame so that it pops up with the card design.  And I've made a background using the lines from the "Get in Line" stamp set and my MISTI to help me line up the stamps correctly.  I was thinking this card would be cute with some pink gingham or chocolate colored gingham ribbon, but I didn't have any!  :(

Here's another look at the shaker card.  I've taken some star sequins to fill the cupcake shaker and I've also taken the same sequins to scatter in different parts of my card front along with adding some larger sequins.  Of course I'm a fan of chocolate, so I had to make a chocolate cupcake! :)

Thanks so much for dropping in today!
Hope you've enjoyed my card and I'll see you soon!

P.S. Mark your calendar to come back next week to see the June Release from Whimsy Stamps!
It's gonna be good!!

OMG! I really LOVE this card! First it is just so adorable and delicious! Secondly I love that it is a shaker card, and the confetti you have inside that awesome cupcake is just perfect! I have yet to make a shaker card, but I think you have inspired me to give it a try! Who wouldn't love to receive this card!

Oh MY! What a yummy shaker card, Vicki! I love the happy brightness you included and the sweetness in the details. I love that the negative space in the front features your delectable edible with the sprinkles in the icing! Such a cleverly designed card! The mixture of tiny words with the big birthday are sweet, too. I admire that you carefully adhered the sequins and those TEE-TINY hearts! WOW! huggers, de

Vicki, this is one of the most creative shaker's I have across in recent times, I saw it on Fb but wanted to come in for a closer look and leave comment. I am sorry for not visiting, bear with my catching up while I am here ;)

Donna Ellis said...

I am back with a HUGE thank you for your BEAUTIFUL day brightener, Vicki! I love the snail-mail you sent - the little pink bird with the dimensional flower and glittery heart! Just made me smile real big - lovely shading in your posies. Your card is very clean and perfectly trimmed! Mine never quite come out like that. Your day brightener arrived as I go into my 2nd week of exacerbating symptoms and resulting disability. I felt cherished and loved - and it helped me overcome the frustration I was feeling - now I am being gentler and kinder to myself so that I don't get as frustrated. THANK YOU, Vicki! I hope to reciprocate soon! love, de

What a brilliant case design! This looks so yummy and sweet and it's such an original shaker design. Love the concept!
So sorry my visits have been a bit irregular lately, MIL was here 5 nights from mid May, the following weekend my parents spent with us in Oslo and have just now completed a trip to celebrate hubby's sisters' (twins) 50th birthday. 1000 km driving in two days. Weekdays spent at work and outdoors. Soon going on holiday, but things will get back to normal again in July:) I'll be around as much as I can for the rest of this month.

Anne said...

What a gorgeous card Vicki, and it's a shaker to boot - I love them!
