From the Heart Shaker

I am a helpless romantic.  To gain inspiration for the current monthly challenge on the Hero Arts Blog, "Friendship and Valentines," I searched the web for vintage valentines, and I also watched the movie "Since You Went Away," staring Claudette Colbert.

This card did not start out to be a shaker, but when I punched the Martha Stewart border punch, I discovered that the little hearts could be used as well.  This is my first shaker card so of course I had to watch the video that Lisa Spangler made for Hero Arts on how to make a shaker card, three times!
I have used two Hero Arts stamps, S5129 and LP141.  They were both embossed with one of my favorites from Ranger, Queens Gold. Papers are from Bazzill, Frances Meyer and Imaginations.  I also used Sizzix dies, (38-0145) photo corners and (38-0157) hearts.  Pearl accents are also from Hero Arts.


  1. Love your romantic valentines card Nancy, so pretty the little shaker is adorable!

  2. This is such a gorgeous, romantic card Nancy. Love your design and all the wonderful details.

  3. Soft and lovely! What a great idea to use the hearts in a shaker.

  4. This is very romantic, Nancy! Love the soft colors!



Thank you for your comments, they make me Happy!
