Just Add Ink #440 - Valentine's Shaker Card

Happy Sunday!! The creative juices have been flowing in the past few days so with this wintery weather we've been having, I'm trying to take advantage as much as I can. We've had a wintery mix here so it's great weather to just stay inside and do nothing. The kids gave me the chance to get into my craft room to get crafty. The idea I had in my head for this card, came out just as I wanted. It did take a little trial and error to get there but I think it came out so cute. I decided to use this card as my entry for the Just Add Ink #440 challenge this week. The challenge this week was to add something new. You can find the challenge HERE.

My something "new" was using the Be Mine Framelits dies and the sentiment from January's Paper Pumpkin kit. I had the idea that I wanted to make a shaker heart and I also wanted to use the collection of hearts dies as part of the design. It took me a couple of times to get it right but how cute do all of those hearts look inside the large scalloped heart??

Oh and those little stamped hearts on the Pool Party card stock is from the January Paper Pumpkin kit as well. Aren't those fun! Inside the shaker heart I used a mix of Iridescent Sequin assortment plus some of the Sprinkles sequins from the Occasions catalog 2 years ago I think?

I hope you enjoy this super fun shaker card. Maybe it will brighten you up on this cold gloomy wintery day!

And I'll be back soon to share my Valentine's decor. I just had to share this card first because I loved how it came out!

Enjoy your day!


  1. Super cute! How did you get all the hearts inside?

    1. Thanks! The white hearts are from one of die cuts in the framelits. I cut them out of white paper 3 times and glued them onto a window sheet. Then I glued that under the pink heart outline. Hope that explains it.

  2. This is adorable and stunning Jen! The lacework of hearts in the shaker window is a fabulous feature! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week. Kim
