Heart Throb Shaker Cards! 0
Michele Boyer here today sharing two cards using one of my favorite paper pads EVER, Heart Throb. The colors are so soft, so pretty!
First I used one of the Heart Throb patterns beneath a Waves Foam Front. I simply cut the patterned paper to just slightly smaller than my card front (which is included with the Foam Front Shaker kit). I filled the openings with Heart Throb toppings then adhered the acetate and die-cut cardstock cover.
I tied a bit of gold cord then stamped a die-cut tag and adhered it beneath the bow. I find it’s much easier to simply slip tags beneath bows, rather than tie them within. In doing so, the tag is secured in place without moving around or loosening the cord. (Stamps and tag die by Paper Smooches.)
My second card uses more pretty Heart Throb paper as well as the heart, hello and love dies, all included within the Heart Throb kit.
Before adhering the hello and love words, I die-cut three of each and layered together to create thicker elements. I adhered a thin scrap of gray floral paper along the left side (much too pretty to toss), and left a bit of the white card base to show. Once everything was assembled, I adhered a few tiny floral Heart Throb toppings.
Thanks so much for visiting today!

Happy 4th of July!
Today we are having our own explosion of fireworks here on the blog. Loads of inspiration and a chance to win one of our awesome Trunks filled with all kinds of goodies. To be eligible for the grand prize (see below), leave a comment on this post. For an addition entry, PIN the above collage image to Pinterest. Drawing will be held July 5th.
So, lets start with some incredible inspiration, shall we?
Amy Sheffer has created a couple cards for us to celebrate this big day!
That American flag shaker element is actually the cake from the Birthday Shaped Shaker set!
Instead of creating a shaker box with the Pop Up Stars, She simply layered them and added bubbles and rhinestone stars and stripes of Glitter Washi.
She used various Queen toppings and liquid dimensional adhesive to create fireworks.
It wouldn’t be a Fourth-themed post without a little red, white, and blue. She took the same taped approach here. Whether you’re thanking a soldier, their family for their service or a party hostess this fourth, these cards are a quick solution to try. Hooray for washi. It’s the supply that stretches and makes crafting easy. Have fun!
Don't forget to comment below for a chance at the Trunk grand prize, and PIN the collage photo (at the very top of the post) for an additional entry.
May your weekend be filled with family, friends, and crafty time!

Are you getting ready for your weekend plans? Fireworks? BBQ? Or just a relaxing weekend in your craft space creating fun cards! How about we share a little inspiration with you today. This one looks so elegant, yet can be completed rather quickly.
You too could create a card similar to this one by Ginger. You could start with our Stars Shaker Card Kit. Line the first layout with various washi tapes and then apply the star cut paper on top.
Wrap twine around the top attaching your sentiment then a few of our fun Iridescent Bubbles.
Wanna try this one?? Again, layer washi tape across the base of your card. Apply a larger object in the center of your card. Ginger used our Pop Up Stars. She filled the star with clear and white toppings and added a few pieces of bling!
We hope you have a fabulous weekend with family, friends and full of fireworks. (Maybe a little time to craft.)
