HSS Technique Challenge #101- Shaker Card

Good Morning Stampers!!! I wanted to share with you the HSS Challenge project that I have for this weeks Technique Challenge- Shaker Cards!!!  I think these are the coolest things to make, and they are super easy too!!  I used this set from the NEW Occasions Mini-Take It to Heart & Loving Thoughts.

Check out all the details for this weeks challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments
I made the shaker window by stamping with VersaMark Ink onto a Window Sheet and then covering it with Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder and heat setting it- it looks SO cool.  It is glossy and raised and looks seriously cool!  I love heat embossing!!
I used the heart embossing folder strip from the Occasions Mini too, to give that cool texture to the card background.  I layered the hearts to make 2 rows which makes a really nice THICK heart texture.  Then I made my outer heart frame for my shaker piece and then placed some PINK chunky glitter inside for movement.  I love how the card sounds like a maraca and I LOVE how when you look from side to side through the window you get a pink colored shadow of the image- SO COOL!!
I used my black embossing powder to create this sentiment piece then I colored in the outer edges with my Cherry Cobbler marker.  I think this card turned out so cute, and it was so simple and FUN to make.  I think I might submit this for the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Occasions Mini Stamp Set Contest that will be going on at Leadership here in SA this week.  I am SUPER excited and can’t wait to experience it for the first time!!  If you will be there and find me say HEY- I would love to meet you!! Have a great week and I hope you enjoy have fun looking at the other Sneak Peeks for my fundraiser… Until Next Time~
