Saturday Stamp Day – Happy Birthday Girl + GIVEAWAY

Happy Saturday everyone! 🙂 In today’s video I am showing you how to make a sequin shaker card using the new Sugar Rush stamp set from Winnie & Walter. Be sure to watch until the very end of my video, because there might be little giveaway.


I started out by die cutting three circles using a die cut set from WPlus9. Next, I stamped bokeh dots using the Big Bang Confetti stamp set from Winnie & Walter. I love this stamp set so much. There are a lot of images included that you can use to create your own background. I used Lemon Yellow ink from Hero Arts and Cotton Candy ink from Simon Says Stamp. These colors look so pretty together. Can you tell I really like yellow lately? 😉


After stamping the bokeh background, I created my shaker. On the inside of the sequin shaker, I stamped images and a greeting from the new Sugar Rush stamp set from Winnie & Walter. I think this stamp set is simply fabulous and it’s perfect for birthday cards. (Did you know Winnie & Walter used my input to create this stamp set? I asked for a stamp set with donuts and cupcakes and ta-da! This is what they came up with. Love it!)

I colored the images using Copic markers and paper pieced the cupcake wrapper with Dear Lizzy patterned paper. I filled up the sequin shaker with new seed beads from Pretty Pink Posh and the traditional sequins. What can I say…. I love sequins.



It’s my 18th birthday this Monday (February 9th) so I decided to celebrate by giving away my new favorite stamp set from Winnie & Walter called Sugar Rush. Be sure to leave a comment on today’s VIDEO by Monday, February 9 at 11:59 p.m. EST for your chance to win. Winner will be announced shortly after. This giveaway is open internationally. Thank you Winnie & Walter for sponsoring this giveaway!

  2. Happy 18th Birthday, Laura…! My goodness, how did you become so talented so young…!! I LOVE this card. I don’t have this stamp set, but I do have some Pretty Pink Posh sequins coming, so if I don’t win these lovely little stamps, I will definitely have to try this technique incorporating a different set of stamps. Anyway, just wanted to say beautiful job and I hope your birthday on Monday is a very special one…:))
