I used a Heart To Heart Die Set

It was some friends of ours 25th Anniversary of living together recently and this is the card I made for them.



As you all know I do love making shaker cards, especially as now I have a fabulous Fuse Tool, have I mentioned it before?? ;-)
I die cut the heart out of a panel of white card and then used a Falling Hearts Stencil to create a cascade with Pumice Stone Ink, I repeated this on a separate piece for the inside of the shaker. While the ink was still wet I brushed over some Perfect Pearls to give them a lovely silvery shimmery look. 


So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting

I used a Scribbly Birds Media Cling Stamp Set to make a sunshiny card ;-)



I am looking forward to the long sunshiny days of summer and used the colours of the beach for my card. I recently bought some Mixed Media Cardstock and wanted to use it to create the background and for the image and I love how the colours absorbed into the card so evenly. I coloured the bird with Cracked Pistachio,  Twisted Citron and Picked Raspberry. The background was inked with Distress Inks and I made a mask using a Scribbles and Splatt Die and used that to create the 'Sun' with Embossing Paste and a sprinkling of Mustard Seed Distress Glitter.



So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
