Good morning! It's time for From the Heart Stamps February Blog Hop; our theme this month is "Project 100 Snowmen"...hop along for some fabulous inspiration from the DT!
As you hop along, please leave a comment on each entry. One random commentor will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from Faith's store.
If you have arrived from the From the Heart Stamps blog you are in the right place, if not why don't you start at the From the Heart Stamps blog so that you don't miss anything?
We were challenged to create a card using one of Faith's "Project 100 Snowmen" images...this was such a fun theme since I happen to love snowmen! For my card today I have used the adorable "Snowman Valentine". The image is colored with pencils and I've layered it with die cuts and foam tape to create a shaker card. (Note to self: It's a good idea to look up a tutorial instead of "winging it" when trying a new technique! LOL I had paper and dies all over the place...next time I try one of these it will go much quicker!) The beads are from SU!...I have had them in my stash for years and never used them...I'm really glad I found them; surprisingly they were right where I thought they were! LOL I had planned to embellish with hearts, but I went with snowflakes and Swarovski flatback crystals. The "snowy" paper and snowflakes are reminiscent of the blizzard we had earlier this week! The sketch I used is from Die Cuttin' Divas. Here are some detail close-ups:
Paper: G.P. 110 CS, SU! Baja Breeze CS, PTI Pure Poppy CS, Lawn Fawn Patterned Papers, The Paper Studio Glitter CS, PTI Acetate
Embellies: Swarovski Flatback Crystals in "Light Siam", SU! Beads
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Nestabilities and Snowflake Die, Lawn Fawn Snowflake Dies, Foam Tape
Now head on over to Brenda's blog to check out her fabulous creation!
Thanks for hopping along with us today; the hop will end on Monday, February 8th at 6:00 a.m. EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps blog on Wednesday, February 10th.

Your shaker card is darling! Glad you could use those beads finally! I know how that goes, and usually by the time I have "just the right" card for something I've had forever, I can't find it! I really need to do some serious organizing in my craft room, but that's just not as much fun as creating the messes! Anyway, your card is a lot of fun!
VERY sweet shaker card! I love the layout and the colors you've used, too!
