Valentine Easel Shaker Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a technique challenge – Shaker Cards!  I’ve never made this type of card but since I have the Stampin’ Up! Heart Framelits it was easy to make using two different sizes of heart dies to make the red heart frame for the window.  For the easel base I used the large scallop heart framelit.  The cute stamped image is from the Take it to Heart stamp set featured in the new occasions mini.  Can you guess how I created the background?  I used the Lots of Love Letterpress plate.  The letter press embosses and can also ink at the same time.  For a more subtle background you don’t have to ink it up.  The shaker heart is filled with the scrap small hearts after using the Pinking Hearts border punch.  A bit of mica flakes is also mixed with the small hearts to add  some additional sparkle.

Think Pink ! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments the challenge is to Think Pink!  Create any project with pink.  October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and HSS would like to remind you that early detection is the key.

For my card this week I was inspired by having a friend to encourage and remind you to do your monthly exams and to schedule a mammogram.  So my card this week features two owl friends or in this case bosom friends.
