Stampin’ Up! Gumball Greetings for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today card, I used the fun Stampin’ Up! Gumball Greetings bundle to make a shaker birthday card. I used the Gumball Machine shaker dome and filled it with the Frosted beads. I also used the Pattern Party designer series paper for the background. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch challenge this week – here is the pretty sketch we are using:

I stamped the gumball dome from the Stampin’ Up! Gumball Greetings photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on a Basic White panel. I stamped several gumballs in Poppy Parade, Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight and cut them out with the coordinating die. I adhered them to the stamped gumball dome back with liquid glue and put a pile of frosted beads in the middle. I peeled off the adhesive backing from one of the plastic gumball shaker domes and adhered it to the stamped dome, securing the frosted beads inside.

I cut a panel of Pattern Party designer series paper with the gumball dome die from the Stampin’ Up! Gumball Greetings bundle and pulled the adhesive strip covering off the front of the shaker dome. I adhered the shaker dome to the back of the die cut DSP and then adhered it to a Granny Apple Green mat. I adhered it to the front of a Crushed curry card base with liquid glue. I cut the gumball dome top, base, handle and trim pieces from Poppy Parade. I adhered the trim pieces to the dome top and the base – this gives the gumball machine some nice dimension! I adhered the base to the card front under the dome and the top to the top of the dome. I lifted the gumball opening slightly and adhered a stamped gumball under it with a glue dot.

I cut some silver foil with the coin plate die from the Stampin’ Up! Gumball Greetings bundle and adhered it to the gumball machine base with dimensionals. I cut the spinner from Poppy Parade and popped it on the machine with dimensionals. I finished the spinner with a silver metallic pearl. I stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery photopolymer stamp set in Poppy Parade on a strip of Crushed Curry and cut it out with the label from the Floral Gallery dies. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

For the inside, I stamped the gumball machine from the Stampin’ Up! Gumball Greetings stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel and colored it with Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink next to the gumball machine and trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Pattern Party DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Gumball Greetings bundle is so much
