Lacy Heart Shaker Card

Shaker Card
Shaker cards are such fun interactive cards and relatively simple to make!The very first card I shared on this blog at a time when I had no idea about die cutting , stamping , embossing and all our sophisticated paper crafting techniques is this  shaker card made for my daughter's 3 yr old friend! Do have a peep at it ...I am  curious to know what you think of it!

           Fast forward 5 yrs down the lane and here is a card created by stamping  and heat embossing a beautiful background stamp[ gifted to me by Shalini Mittal of Crafters Corner] and inking it with Distress inks.Made the "Heart Shaker" using a Nellie Snellen die and added a lacy Poppy Stamps swirly border die cut on it before adding the acetate/transparency.Here is the tutorial link to how to make a Shaker Card.

           There are tiny pink hearts and pearls inside the heart which rattle gently on shaking the card!The "I love you" and porcelain white heart with wings were made with white hot glue and a silicon mold.[Here is the tutorial " Porcelain embellishment tutorial ]
Heat embossed flowers
           The flowers and leaves were made by stamping and heat embossing the Heartfelt creations sun kissed fleur on vellum and die cutting it with the matching die set.Inked the flower centers with the same distress inks used on the heat embossed background .

Easy Heat Embossing Tutorial

Heat Embossed Card
Hi friends surprised to see a simple card from me?! Well I kept it simple to demonstrate how it was created!
Red Tacky Tape
As part of my DT work for Crafters Corner , I was sent some super sticky Red Tacky Tape [ a double sided adhesive tape much stronger than the regular adhesive tape] which was purported to be heat resistant too in addition to all its super stickiness!
To test it out , I started with a plain white card and here is how you can heat emboss without an embossing ink pad!
Heat Embossing Tutorial 
Add a band of adhesive tape [shown in red with its plastic lining on] on the card.
Heat Embossing Tutorial 
Peel off the red plastic lining to reveal the clear adhesive layer underneath

Heat Embossing Tutorial 
Pour your embossing powder. I used Ranger's super fine gold embossing powder.

Heat Embossing Tutorial 
Tap off the excess powder.
