Fancy Heart Shaker Card

Hi crafters!  Here is a lovely card that uses the new heart treat cup shapes!  There are actually three heart dies that work with this shape and this video will show you the Jewelled Heart die set in action!

Beautiful card Sue, it's gorgeous.
Welcome to Heidi, as our ladies have already said, you have found the best blog ever.
Carmen, good to hear the Kid is doing well enough to visit. His girlfriend sounds delightful and a real keeper. They are both so strong.
My best wishes for his health and their future together.
June, I did know about your sisters, I was the eldest of 6, four brothers, then Mum had my sister a year before she died. My Nana brought up my sister from 3 months old as Mum was so poorly and we were to young to cope with everything. She only lived a few minutes away so we saw her every day.
Girls, you are so right about the grandchildren, such joy, my eldest Luke is nearly 20, so handsome and a lovely young man and my only granddaughter Rachael, 14 is gorgeous, as are the twins.
Helen, hope you are feeling more comfortable bow stitches are out, physio, I think you were right with torture but necessary, hang in there.
Elaine, hope Andrew got loads of rest. Big hugs for you all. Hope dr appointment went well for you.
Hugs to all, especially our poorly and missing friends, TinaT and NannaTina, Norah, Yvonne, Wheeley, missing you gals.

Hello Sue and all
Loved this card when I saw your video on you tube, it has everything !
Real crafting weather at the moment, so much rain, we haven't had rain like this in mid coast NSW for ages, everything is starting to look green again. I have even managed to get a couple of cards made, lets hope it keeps up for a little while.

Craftynetty said...

Such a beautiful, elegant card Sue. The chrysanthemum flowers are so effective. Thank you.

Steph Cotterill said...

Morning Sue.
My first thoughts about this sample was it looks very regal and opulent and the design of the heart is sooo pretty Sue. Although it's a brilliant 'gift' to give to that special couple, you could colour theme the heart and it's contents for those milestone anniversaries maybe. I've not watched the 'how to' yet but it's the next on my to do list, what a chore - NOT ☺ so before I indulge myself into the four walls of your YouTube studio with a hot large glass of latte,I will send my usual hugs, and hope you have the most fantastic day either there or here or maybe in between ??!! Xxx

Good morning Sue, Good morning all. I love this card it is very regal looking. I've been looking for ideas 💡 for a sapphire wedding card and once again you have come to the rescue. This would make a beautiful golden wedding anniversary card. It's a pity it's my Silver anniversary this year. Beautiful stunning card.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, oh what a fantastic card today, I will watch the video later, but definitely will be making this, I have all the ingredients so will be looking forward to this. You really are a talented person Sue to come up with such creations from your dies and stamps, I feel honoured and privileged to be your friend.

Pam, you like I must have so many memories of when we were growing up, I know whenever I get together with my sisters we talk and laugh so much remembering, that is one of the good things about coming from a big family. I have 4 grandchildren, boys are 21 and 14 and girls are 15 and 5, they bring us so much joy.

Elaine, hope Andrew has rested up and is feeling much better. and Helen keep up the physio, believe me it does get easier.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Wow what an outstandingly lovely card, Sue, that heart die is so pretty and love it all - curled corner, sentiment, floral element. Guess it would work just as well without the shaker. Do like that you are using a little mirror card - even if you do give it a bit of distressing! Video, as ever, really appreciated.
Thanks Pam, echoing again. Such a tragedy for your family losing your Mum, and what a lovely Nana.
Heidi - welcome, love your expression - Sue's card today also "sent right through all my fences".
Hugs for Laine (my grandmother-in-law always said I had plebeian tastes, make of that what you will!!) And for Carmen - what an inspiration the Kid and his girlfriend are.
Happy day everyone.

nattyboots said...

Beautiful work Sue ,i wish i had money to buy all your lovely dies.

I am waiting to have my back assessed whatever that means ,but as the walking stick does not help i will take anything. Andrew is doing just fine , hopefully another treatment on Thursday.

Pam ,so tragic losing your mum but thankfully your lovely Nan kept you all together, My john lost his Mum when he was 5,his two sisters 3 and 6 months of age, his dad had lost one leg in the Somme war , he found he could not cope and so had the girls put into care , sadly they lost contact as the years went on ,however after years of looking for them we found them , one living not too far away and one in Wales , all of them being in their 30s. We all meet up for family parties and get to see each other quite often now and always talking of times gone by .
I will jump on your wagon again today if thats alright.

Sending the usual hugs to all

Good morning Sue
What a beautiful card this morning, very sophisticated and who doesn't like a shaker card. Perfect for weddings and special anniversaries I think and can be made in any colour to suit the occasion. I do love the gold tipped chrysanthemums, definately the perfect finishing touch to the card. Thank you for sharing.
Love Diane G xxx
Pam as always you've said it all. Your nanna was an amazing lady to take on you and your brothers and sisters but it's what families do isn't it. Xxx

Good Morning sue and all. A WOW card this morning . The colours and the dies you have used are just stunning. Looking forward to watching the video....... Wendy

Unknown said...

Dear Sue and Awestruck-ettes,

OK now you're starting to get through to me on the chrysanthemums. Love that tipping with gold. Might not be much longer before I succumb.
Am I just cheap, or does it seem like a waste of good mirror card to emboss a whole sheet and then just let two tiny bits show? I sometimes wonder if, when you're matting your layers with really nice card, you sometimes cut out the middle so you can use most of the paper for something else -- since only the edge is showing anyway.
Today I looked right at 1 a.m. East Coast (of U.S.) time and didn't see the new card. Took me a few to realize we went on Daylight Savings over the weekend, so I need to look at 2 a.m. Now.
One of my assignments during Tuesday's near-blizzard is to go see if the surfing enthusiasts are out there riding the storm waves.

Enjoy your Tuesday moments. Thanks for the glorious jeweled heart.

Sandra said...

Hi Sue & friends,

My goodness what a stunner of a card today, i love the little touches, the rolled corner with the gold card peeking through and how you have added gold to your flowers.
I am off to watch you create this masterpiece!
Have a lovely day ladies,

Just stunning, beautiful dies and flowers.

Anonymous said...

Oh, what a fabulous, sophisticated and elegant card. I don't usually think of shaker cards int that way, but this one certainly is! It would be just perfect for so many special occasions like weddings and anniversaries and while I love the colours in the demo, it could be made in any colour combination to suit the occasion. I adore the gold tipped chrysanthemums,lovely finishing touches. But, oh dear, I haven't got these dies or the heart.... and I feel them calling to me!!! Thank you for sharing this.

Hi sue love the gold and white card and how u flipped one corner and l generally don't like shaker cards to be honest but this one small shaker heart quite effective but still not a fan

Anonymous said...

Absolutely stunning card. I just recently purchased the heart fillable dies, all 3 sets of them, and the fronds dies for my friend's birthday....so beautiful. She opened them immediately and we die cut them...oh, my, they are so pretty. The details on the heart dies is "to die for"...LOL pun intended. While she offered to share them with me, I think I'll have to add them to my die collection.

Thanks for another wonderful video. I already texted my friend to tell her to watch it, too.

As always I love the flowers they are fantastic, this card will meet the needs of many occasions
Pam as always your summary really hits the spot, your family all coped wonderfully but that is what families did then unlike some today who take the easy option, while others do cope wonderfully with little or no help.

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
I'm sorry I'm very late today! It's just been one of those days and I did want to watch the video first!
It's a beautiful card but personally I'd prefer it without the treat cup. I love how you just took a bit of the shine off the heart! It's such a pretty Die. Great tip too about fixing the rolled edge down. The flowers are gorgeous and the sentiment is a lovely one. Thank you so much. Oh Sue, the Glitter Kiss is amazing!! Great product!
Donita - the thought of riding storm surf waves makes me ill without adding a blizzard to the picture! Stay safe !!
Helen Bell - keep going with the physio it will be worth it and you will be able to craft again pain free!
Yvonne- I do hope all your travels and helping your parents hasn't made you too unwell. Thinking of you and missing you!
Love to all my lovely friends on the blog!

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue and everyone

What a wonderful card. It's so majestic. Just lovely. Unfortunately I have not watched the video yet... but fortunately I can look forward to watching it tomorrow. I love the embossing folder it goes perfectly with the dies used.

Pam I am feeling more comfortable now the stitches are out thank you, the bruising is nice and colourful now too. Definitely agree the physio is worth the pain and will help in the long run. To June, Izzy, Pat and Myra thanks for the comments. I think I have it easy compared to what you had to go through June, I think the upper limbs are easier to cope with than the lower ones. I have had pain and impaired movement for so long I can't wait until I'm healed properly. They've told me it will be a long haul, but steady progress is better than it getting worse like it was. Thanks to all those who echoed Pams comments too.

Lots of love
Helen xxx

Tooth Fairy Jo said...

Hello Sue,
Today's card is so opulent, and definitely a wow card. I love it. Thoroughly enjoyed watching the video, and a great tip about backing the treat cup although like Myra I think I would prefer it without a treat cup. The chrysanthemums look fabulous tipped in gold, they are my new go to flower at the moment.
Pam bless you it must have been hard growing up without your mum, glad you had your nana to care for your sister.
Elaine what a lovely ending to a sad beginning, so pleased John found his sisters.
Donita it makes me shiver just thinking about your weather let alone surfing, hope you get a good piece to write up.
Trish I hope Elissa has a wonderful trip to Cologne, it's beautiful. Think I can guess which company your daughter works for, yummy.
Helen, keep up the good work, it'll be worth it and you'll be back crafting in no time. Big hugs.
Laine, George Michael? Really?
Love and hugs for all

Hi Sue,

This is a stunning card! Simple but elegant and sophisticated! Love the colors. The gold tipped chrysanthemums is a nice touch. A card with an embossed background is a winner for me!
It would work just as well without the shake, as ‘P’ in Wales said. It still has lots of beautiful elements to be a gorgeous card.Thank you sharing and for the great video.

Pam – So sad to hear about your mom. When I was very young I thought that Moms live forever. The life is not a fairy tale for everybody. I think your Nana was as special person and for sure you inherited something from her: the kindness and care for others. As I said before, when I see your comment on the top I know that the day will be just fine. Thank you to be here every day!
Heidi – A warm welcome for you from Canada.
Elaine- Hope you’ll feel better. Hugs for the three of you.
Laine – Are you still playing with your new toys?
PP - Wishing you well. Hope you’ll be back soon.

Starting today I am the happy owner of some of Sue’s dies: Striplet Timeless,Corners Square & Triple Gemini -Pictor! I am planning to make a few small cards and these dies fit perfectly my needs. They are so pretty. My wish list becomes longer each day.

Have a great day everyone.
