My Favorite Things – Joyful Heart Bears & Heart Art

Hello!

I’m sharing my second card using My Favorite Thing’s Joyful Heart Bears and this month’s fun kit supplies: Heart Art, Heart Trio Shaker Window, Heart Trio Shaker Pouch, and Mini Heart Shaker Window and Frame dies!

The Mini Heart Shaker Window Frame is free with $60 purchase right now – and I used it today to break up the Heart Trio Shaker Pouch to give it a different look than how it comes to be used in a line with the Heart Trio Shaker Window die. I started by ink-blending an A2 card panel. I added some water splatters to give this panel some extra interest, then I die-cut 3 staggered hearts using the Mini Heart Shaker Window die. Placing the heart die-cut panel into my MISTI tool, I’m able to use it as a template to stamp the hearts from the Heart Art stamp set. I use it to position my stamps and then remove the panel to ink up the stamps and stamp the hearts on my card base.

I used the Mini Heart Shaker Frame die to die cut frames using Gold Sparkle Specialty Cardstock. Then I cut apart the Heart Trio Shaker Pouch into individual pouches to glue them to the ink-blended panel. At this point, I trimmed my card panel only to discover I had not made equal cuts….hence why there is a glitter cardstock border. Oops! But it worked out. The next hurdle was adding the shaker element – I’ll be honest and say that while I have many of these shaker pouches in different shapes…I’ve only used the chapstick pouch – it’s a lot easier to manage one it’s one big item and not a lot of little sequins. I made it very difficult on myself by choosing to use Tiny Bubbles on this card. They got everywhere and stuck all over my adhesive. GAH! I probably made it far too difficult for myself…but I added the tiny bubbles to the pouches, then carefully added my adhesive to this panel and then I attached my stamped cardbase….UPSIDE DOWN. YEP…because I couldn’t flip over my panel filled with these tiny tyrant bubbles, I had to do it upside down. Sorry…they were a pain to work with…but they really are cute! It’s a love/hate relationship at this point.

Sorry I went on a rant there. Once I got the card panel adhered to the card base…phew!…I attached the heart window frames that I cut previously with Gold Sparkle Specialty Cardstock. I then stamped my sentiment and then set it aside to color a bear from the Joyful Heart Bears stamp set using Copic markers (YR30, E30, E42, E31, R20, RV11, R83, R85). Then I die-cut the bear, added white gel high lights and attached him to the card. Ta-da!!!! Good grief, that was a challenging card! But I’m happy with it and I hope you liked it. Thanks for sticking with me and reading to the end! This was an anxiety-ridden post, if you don’t mind my saying so! I like to keep it honest sometimes and using humor makes it all better in the end!

Have a fabulous day, friends!

XOXO,

  1. Thank you … it’s good to know that I’m not the only one that struggles and has these “less than pleasant” cardmaking sessions at times.😜 For what it’s worth, your card turned out super adorable! Had you not shared your story, no one would have suspected otherwise. Very cute card!😊
