Such incredible prizes! 

For today's birthday celebrations I worked with 4  gorgeous new STAMPlorations products;

Charming bold sentiments stamps
and the sweet word die.

I made 2 celebrations cards.

For my first card I used a sheet of cupcake backing paper from my stash and then die cut the balloons from some card I had coloured with Distress Oxides. I used a piece of acetate to contain my little seed beads. I stamped my sentiment and then added my "sweet" die cut from an oxide offcut. This is the first shaker card I have ever made!

For my second card I used another piece from my sheet of backing paper. I used PaperArtsy Infusions to colour some card which I die cut my cake tops from. I cut the cases from matt gold and kraft card stock and added the cherry on top using red card. These dies cut and layer up so well. I finished off with a sprinkling of sequins (less calories than sugar 😉)
The stamps and dies are all such a dream to work with.
