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.


I would also like to support the following challenges: 613 Avenue Create AG (all items from my stash) 3/3; A Snowflake's Promise AG Winter 3/3; Aud Sentiments Love Sentiment 1/5; Beccy's Place February AG UE; Bunny Zoe's Hearts UE; Cardz TV Valentine's Day Card 3/3; Craft Rocket Valentine/Love 1/3; Craft Your Passion AG 3/3; Craftin Desert Diva's Hearts UE; Crafting by Designs February AG 1/3; Crafting Musketeers Monochrome 1E; Crafty Creations Hearts 1/2; Crafty Gals Corner Love is in the Air 1/2; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG UE; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Extra February AG UE; Creatalicious Love is in the Air UE; Creative Inspiration Hugs and Kisses UE; Creative Moments AG Romance/Love 1/3; Crimbo Crackers AG UE; Cuddlebug Mania For Kids 2/3; Cute Card Thursday In the Pink UE; Deep Ocean Winter Wonderland UE; Die-Cut Divas Love, Marriage, Anniversaries 2/4; Dies R Us Love 2/3; DL.ART February AG UE 1/day; DL.ART Thankful Thursday Valentines 3/3; Double D Pretty Pink Hearts (see inspiration photo below) 1/3; Dragonfly Journeys Pretty in Pink UE; DRS Designs Lucky Charms (lucky colour - pink!)

scrAPpamondo said...

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!

Sue Reynolds said...

Kitty, what an adorable shaker card, the hearts and embossing on the backgrond and the super cute snowman certainly makes this card a WOW. Thanks for joining us at Aud Sentiments.

How cute! Love that you made the window snowflake shaped, it's a great way to use your die, just started to experiment with the negative technique possibilties myself. It's also a very versatile card, perfect for Valentine, a just because or a winter birthday even.
