Loads of fun!

I'm shakin' it up tonite with my brand spankin' new "Sushi" set from Eclectic Paperie! I'm on a Stampendous kick lately and I could NOT resist getting this set for fun birthday cards!

I had to do a shaker card in honor of Joy Kennedy from E.P. because she is the SHAKER QUEEN! I used the stamp sets "Loads of Sushi" and "Sushi's Favorite Words" and made a birthday fishy out of this set. I stamped off the washing machine and cut out the round door for my shaker card. I used a transparency sheet to cover it and then added little blue beads and some "clothes" to the washing machine, along with Sushi and a balloon! I attached sushi to the blue back of the shaker card with a pop dot so that the clothes can 'tumble' all around sushi when you move the card!

Here's a close-up of the little clothes...I used an old Stampin Up set called "Fashion Statements" to stamp off little bras, dresses and sweaters on patterned paper, then cut them out.

The washing machine knob is actually a screw-shaped brad from Oriental Trading.

Patterned paper by Crate, "Kaitlin" Collection.

Dang, that reminds me that I should put a load of clothes in tonite. I HATE when cleaning gets in the way of stamping! Happy Thursday all!
