Sprinkles Birthday

 When this Make it Market Kit from Papertrey Ink (called Shakers & Sprinkles) went on sale - I was in Italy. When we got back from our trip and I saw it - my initial thought was - darn! But it took me about a second to say to myself - hey you were in Italy... ITALY. You are a lucky girl. If I was supposed to have this kit - I woulda had it. And, I got to go to Italy. Nuff said right?
Well there was such an overwhelming demand for this kit - they made more. And long story short - I caved. I mean how can you resist that word "Sprinkles" (not to mention the other dies in this kit. It's a wonderland of dies I tell you. And to a die-cutting fan like myself - it is a little bit of heaven).
Another wonderful thing in this kit (there are so many) is the little confetti stamps. Oh be still my heart. So stinkin cute it should be illegal.
And when I had the chance finally to get to use the kit - to make a birthday card for just the sweetest friend on the PTI board - Little Mabel (yes that be you Sandy!) - I jumped on it. I really wanted to do a shaker card (what the kit is all about to be sure) but my moments were limited and I wanted to get the card to her on time. (The kit does make the shaker a much more doable thing for sure but I really have to sit down and take my time - and that wasn't happening in the last week and a half).  For the sparkly Sprinkles die cut word I used some Doodlebug Sugar Coated cardstock - omg - that stuff is just awesome. So easy to use and fabulous results. No mess just cuteness! I added this side view photo so you could see the word die closer (I actually cut 3 or 4 out of white cardstock to get a little thicker and more stable die cut) and when i was done stamping and assembling I decided to throw on a few clear sequins to add to the sparkle.

okay kids that's all for today! Thanks for stopping by
