With All My Heart.

Hello everyone and a very happy Wednesday to you all!

I am very happy to be showing you this card today, because it has ALL of my favourite things on it! Smiles.


I love this!! Tee hee..

The gorgeous, gorgeous image is brand new, it is called Knitting A Heart and will be available in rubber from January 8th, from Crafty Sentiments Designs.

Yes.. It was love at first sight!


To bring Knitting A Heart to life, I used my Copics in these shades:-

Bean Bag

Bean Bag.



knitting and yarn balls and top

Knitting, Yarn Balls, Hair Bow & Blouse.

Knitting Needles

Fancy Heart Border

The beautiful heart border, I created with my Heart Border Die, also from Crafty Sentiments Designs.


My design paper is Echo Park – Be Mine. And the Scalloped Heart is from Whimsy Stamps.

The Love You With All My Heart Stamp is from Kraftin Kimmie. And is from their Love Story Sentiments Clear Stamp Set. To stamp it I used my Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Barn Door.

step one

To create this shaker card, I first coloured my image, then fussy cut around it.

step two

Next I cut out three hearts. 2 from white card stock, and 1 from white fun foam.

step three

Then I cut the insides out to give myself a heart frame for the top of the shaker.

I cut 1 foam heart and 1 card heart. The other I left intact for the base.

step four

Using my Love Story Stamp Set and my Barn Door ink pad, I stamped the sentiment onto the heart base card.

I lined up the centre of the heart on my craft mat and taped into place. This helped me line up my sentiment perfectly central when I was stamping.

step six

Next I took a sheet of clear acetate and cut another heart from it, using my Whimsy Stamps Heart Die. I trimmed off the scallop edges with my scissors.

step seven

I took my top card frame, and laid it face down, then I stuck my acetate on top.

step eight

Next I stuck my foam frame on top (face down.)

Once the wet glue was dry, I added my glitter and sequins.

step nine

Finally, I added my base piece (with the sentiment) and glued it face down, on top of the foam frame.

step ten

While the heart shaker was drying, I made up my base card. I used a piece of  Centura Pearlescent Cardstock for my base. Then I layered with plain black card, and my Echo Park Paper.

The heart frame border was cut and laid on top of the design paper.

3D frame

I stuck my shaker heart into the centre of my card.


Then I stuck my Knitting A Heart image onto of the heart and card base.  I used my 3D Glue Gel for added depth.

And that’s it! Nice and easy! Smiles.

Hello everyone!

Today I would like you all to meet my little Tweety Pie from the brand new Critter Love Set from Amy Doodle!


Isn’t he just the cutest??!! I know right?! 

I’m smiling massively just looking at this cute lil’ fella!

I’m giving this card to my children for Valentines Day.  I just know that they’ll love it.

Easy peasy! :0)


To bring this cute image to life I used the following copics:-


For the bird.


For the love heart.

The border was coloured using those B markers up there in the top picture, and the dots in the background I did with the B06.


The card base is my own, which I designed with my Silhouette Software.

The dotted cardstock is from Hunky Dory Crafts and is just so thick and luxurious!

That pale blue pearlescent card is from Crafter’s Companion.

And those lil’ buttons?  They’re from a rather special box I have that is full of jars jam packed with buttons!! Smiles.

I can’t remember where I got my box from but you can get the jars as singles from Every Crafts A Pound.  They’re still a great bargain!


To complete my CAS style card I added strips of white hammer card with blue dotted ribbon stuck to the front.  Then I took another strip done exactly the same, and folded it to add dimension.  Then the buttons and voila – all done!


I really hope you’ll come join our lovely little group on Facebook.  Everyone is so friendly and we always love to see what everyone has created, using Amy’s fabulous designs.
