A Little Shook Up!

I thought I'd use that title because of the little tiny shaker card I made. I used the new hearts punch from Stampin' Up!. I punched the heart out of Real Red card stock. Then I took some foam tape and I punched the same heart out of that. I took the smaller heart from the punch and made a pattern with it and set it on top of the foam tape heart and punched it out. I did have to stick the foam heart on a piece of parchment paper so I could have something to hold on to while I punched out the heart. Then I took some red card stock and punched out the smaller heart and then lined up the larger one over it and punched it out. My next technique page will be the shaker card!!! Stay tuned!!!

I stuck the foam heart to the solid heart. Then I removed the protective piece from the foam to expose the tape. I added a little bit of the clear micro beads to the center and covered it with a piece of acetate. I did punch the acetate out using the heart punch but after a couple of them I realized I didn't need to do that, a little piece of acetate is more than enough to cover the heart opening.

Then I affixed the large heart with the small heart in the center of it to the foam heart. I used my gel pen to add the dots and I drew around the little heart.

For the stem I used the Stampin' Up! "Sweet Stems" set. I used a marker to color in the stem (the Direct to Rubber) technique. I huffed on it and stamped the image onto a piece of vanilla card stock. I sponged the edges and layered the piece.

For the words I used the computer and punched them out and layered them on top of the scallop punched piece of red card stock. I used the new "Candy Lane" decorative papers for my background pieces. It's simple but sweet!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,!
