We "heart" Hearts Challenge #320

 Hello Ai fans!

We just finished up our Shimmy and Shake challenge.

We have two lucky winners to announce, but first, let's introduce our new challenge for this week!

We're looking for cards or crafty creations that have hearts on them. It doesn't necessarily need to be for Valentine's Day.  Your project just needs to contain hearts.  We hope you "heart" this challenge!!

We're kicking off our new challenge with an adorable card from Reneé.


Today I have a sweet Valentine's Day card to share with you.  I'll be showing you

how I made my sparkly XOs!

First I start with some double sided adhesive that I get at

Place the adhesive on your paper.  Die cut your letters out.

Peel off one side of the backing paper and place the letter over or in something because this will be messy!  I used my embossing tray.  Sprinkle your glitter of choice over the exposed adhesive.

I used tweezers to pick up the letter and shake off any excess glitter.

I glued my letter to my card and repeated the process 3 more times.

I used 5072 – Block Letters Die Set and 5117 – Valentine Critters Set on my card.

The hearts on the front are from 5223 – Bookmark Dies and 5317 – MB Template Dies.
On the inside I used 5133 – Flag Double Stitched Dies and 5132 – Tag Stitched Dies and more hearts from the bookmark set.

Here's a close up of the amazing sparkle.
How cute is that little grin on the otter!

We hope you loved Reneé's  Valentine card as much as we did!

Now to announce the winners of our "Shimmy & Shake" challenge.

Our top spot goes to Irene Rhodes for her adorable panda shaker card.
She used the 5113 – Pand-tastic Set from Art Impressions Funny Farm series.
