Heart Snowman

Hello, everyone! Before I get started, I would like to welcome four new followers - choc312002Jarka Ef, Eekers, and Helen Haines - thank you for joining me!  Today I'm sharing yet another shaker card! Shakers are my favourite style at the moment!


I fell in love with this Valentine Snowman from From the Heart Stamps!  I coloured this cutie with Prismacolor pencils, added Clear Wink of Stella all over her body for some shimmer, and then added Snow Writer to the white parts of her hat.

For the front of the shaker, I used Simon Says Stamp Falling Hearts Stencil and inked Spun Sugar Distress Ink.  I die-cut the Stampendous Snowflake and embossed it with Darice Snowflake Background. The stamped sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Everyday Moments. For accents, I added a number of heart sequins as well as two white pearls.  Inside the shaker is vase filler from Dollarama - it's lightweight clear plastic beads.

  32. Oh WOW!!! Your shakers are amazing and this is no an exception!! Such a clever idea using the snowflacke die to cut the aperture of the shaker!!! And such a great effect filling the space with these vase filler, they seems really little cube of ice!!! The embossing on the stenciled front with the little heart sequins looks very well and what to say on the supercute snowman?? I just love it!!
    P.S. The sweet snowman feels as a female, so pinky... Can I say "snowgirl" instead "snowman"? :D
    Hugs my sweet friend! Have a great weekend!
