Hello Foxy

This is my post on Sparkle N Sprinkle today.

Misc:  Square Die Cuts
Tiny Heart Punch
Bark Embossing Folder
Sprinkles for shaker

Hello, Diane with you today with a cute little shaker card
perfect for Valentines or anytime using the newly released stamp set

I wanted to show you how handy the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform can be.
As you can see, I stamped the image but didn't capture the entire thing.
So I easily inked back up and stamped a couple more times until
it was perfectly and completely stamped....this is the best 'tool' ever!!

For this card I used just the sitting fox.
I applied Sakura Quicky glue pen to the fox after I had colored him with Copics
I added a bit of glue at a time, then used 
Sparkle N Soft Autumn Sparkle flocking, pressing down slightly.
I wanted a really good coverage, which is why I did a little at a time.
Isn't he pretty and all soft and glittery!
Once he was completely dry I fussy cut him out with Tonic 5" Mini Scissors.

I used a bark embossing folder and a square die to cut out the shaker shape.
I rubbed on Nuvo Mousse Embellishment Fresh Copper directly on the embossed folder.
I cute a slightly bigger piece (then the cutout square) of Clear Embossable Acetate
for the 'window' of the shaker.  Foam was then added to the back of the acetate and I added a few little heart sprinkles, then added a back paper to cover.

I heat embossed the sentiment on a stitched square die cut using 
Versamark and Coffee embossing powder.
For the back paper of the card I used a new and beautiful 
I actually 'flipped this paper upside down as it then resembled little hearts.
The same paper was used to punch a tiny heart to add to the sentiment.

I added a tiny pink cord to 'tie it' all together!

Thank you for visiting with me today!

Oooh, I love the sparkly flocking on your cute fox! Also, I see another embossing folder I have which needs to get used. So many things to play with! Fabulous as a shaker with all those tiny hearts, and the mermaid paper totally looks like hearts. Clever design, Diane!

Lovin' all your texture here, and the shaker bits are perfect. That little fox is so stinkin' cute, especially his pretty fur. Wonderful design, my dear!

Love your sparkly, fuzzy little fox in his wood-grained lair. The green background is a lovely touch and the little green heart is adorable. Great shaker element too.

This is super pretty, Diane. I love the wood grain background and the sparkle sequins. I posted a card on my blog today that I made using the Farm Fresh Stamp Set. I like how it turned out. I hope you will stop by to take a peek. Have a blessed week, and don't forget to play along with us at Word Art Wednesday.
Blessings to you,
