united we flourish sweet sprinkles

One of my favorite things about working at Ellen Hutson LLC is working with awesome people. And not just my amazing co-workers but also the wonderful people at awesome companies like Concord & 9th. I've been lucky enough to meet Angie & Greg and they are as wonderful as their stamps & dies! They are caring & kind and they design fabulous products, including this new Sweet Sprinkles set!
When I saw this stamp set I knew I had to make a shaker and I had to use real sprinkles!

Here are my tips...
  • stamp the bottom of the cupcake and sentiment before die cutting.
  • add some color to the card front where the shaker opening will be for "frosting".
  • jimmie-type sprinkles are easier to use than nonpareils. The nonpareils slip out of the card if your shaker has any "weak spots" in the construction. Ask me how I know! haha!
  • make sure you have dry hands when handling sprinkles or they will bleed color and get sticky. Again, ask me how I know!

In addition to this adorable set, there are also prizes!!! Two randomly selected commenters will win a $30 gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson shop and two commenters will win a $30 gift certificate to the Concord & 9th shop! To enter just leave a comment on the Ellen Hutson Classroom blog, the Concord blog or the Where Creativity Meets C9 blog by 12pm PST on December 26th.

Make sure you hope over to Jessica's blog and have fun! Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs!
Carly

Ha - when I came to your blog I thought, wow, those look like real jimmies and lo and behold, they ARE! What an amazing card plus it’s edible (kidding, sort of). I love that you did this and the colors are so vibrant and happy. Just great

You take 'shake it up' to another level of wonderful, Carly Tee! I'm betting your sweet little fingers are even cuter all 'sprinkled' with color - I've had the same adventure while decorating cookies!
A darling card, indeed!

I would never have thought to use real sprinkles but they look fantastic and the hints make it possible for us to try it too.
