Stampin’ Up! Bella & Friends Having Fun with Pretty Kitty

Bella & Friends, Pretty Kitty, Scenic Sayings, Shaker Card, Stampin Up

Hello, my Stamper friends! Have you had a chance to play with Bella & Friends or Pretty Kitty yet? These two stamp sets were exactly what I have been waiting for since I joined Stampin’ Up! five years ago. I LOVE them! This card was the first card I made after returning from our wonderful vacation. It came about from all of the various scraps from my last Retro Rubber card – do you see the similarities?

I had leftover balloons and scrap DSP still on my craft table. Even the large circle negative from a previous project was a scrap. (This is a non-SU framelit but any SU would work great!) So immediately the idea of making a shaker card came to mind. It’s not a technique that I have much experience with but they are lots of fun to make. The large sentiment from Scenic Sayings was perfect for the shaker card, stamped with Stazon and allowed to dry. To keep the sequins in place, the new foam adhesive strips worked fantastically.  This card came together in no time at all, jet lag and all!Bella & Friends, Pretty Kitty, Scenic Sayings, Shaker Card, Stampin Up, inside
