Christmas shaker tags

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Canberra

I got a fuse tool a few days ago and have tried using it to make these shaker tags. The tool works quite well and I am happy with it. I used Stampin’ Up! Sweet Li’l Things DSP on one tag and Merry Moments on the other. The double sided DSP makes each tag having different looks on each side.

For the Sweet Li’l Things tag, only one side qualifies a shaker tag. The other side I used a fox stamp from Life in the Forest stamp set (retired) and a Santa hat stamp from Owl Occasions stamp set (also retired).

The shaking sequins can be seen on both sides of the Merry Moments tag. I added a Christmas tree stamp from Peaceful Pines stamp set on one side ad from Life in the Forest on the other side.

Garden in Bloom – Thank you card

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Canberra

This is a simple one layer card that takes only a few minutes to make. It is for Ayswarya, who organised all domestic travel and accommodation for my recent visit to India. Ayswarya is very beautiful, bright and friendly. She accompanied me throughout my visit in New Delhi, Mumbai and Nashik.

I remembered about the card on the day I had to leave Australia so I had to make a very quick one. I even had time to decorate its envelope. I think the strip of black and white patterned paper made the card and envelope a bit more interesting.

The ink colours I used are Brushing Bride, Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party and Basic Gray.

Christmas shaker cards

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Canberra

This weekend is quite calm and relaxing for me and the best thing is I have lots of time to craft! I love shaker cards and made two of them yesterday (big smile!).

Christmas shaker cards 1

I often use non- traditional Christmas colours for my Christmas cards. On the first card I used mainly Whisper White and Sahara Sand, but a bit of red patterned paper (Merry Moments DSP) for background of the shaker area.

I embossed the Sahara Sand piece with Woodland embossing folder and thought adding a deer would be nice. I don’t have any Christmas looking deer stamp so I used this cute little deer stamp from Made with Love stamp set.

Then I moved on to the second card, using pretty much the same design but replacing Sahara Sand with Soft Sky, embossed with Fluttering embossing folder. For the background of the shaker area I used same patterned paper but the opposite side of the red.

I am happy with both cards, probably like the Soft Sky one a little more than the Sahara Sand one.

Souvenirs from Japan

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Canberra

I am back from a few days’ work trip in Japan and would like to share with you some souvenirs I brought back for my colleagues, who had helped me with the briefings, travel arrangement and official gifts etc. Some of them were already wrapped nicely from the shops.

I made little thank you cards and used Japanese paper for the envelopes to go with the beautiful cherry blossoms handkerchiefs. I added a cute aeroplane paperclip on each envelope.

Inside this box are Japanese sweets. Again, I made a little thank you card in a Japanese paper envelope to go with it.

I got these mechanical pencils from a stationary shop (I love stationaries!). They weren’t wrapped so I used Japanese paper to make pockets for them and added Japanese doll charm to decorate the pockets.

I made these triangular boxes to carry blueberry candies, again using Japanese paper and added a robot and a mushroom paperclips.
