Welcome to a blog hop for the Simon Says Stamp And Back Again release! Today, I’ve got some shaker card fun to share! And hello to all who are stopping by after seeing Jennifer’s amazing cards!
This card is actually easier than it looks! Plus, look what I created from the leftovers:
See that subtle heart panel behind the big XOXO? That was created by dry embossing the Tumbling Hearts stencil onto white cardstock.
Here is my video showing you how I created the shaker card!

Hi, CZ – I love your “leftover” card! I like it even better than the shaker, but I LOVE those embellishments in the shape of hearts! Your videos always teach me something and I appreciate all the effort it takes to post those!

Vicki W says
As a subscriber to your YouTube page and a follower on Instagram, I feel pretty confident in telling my sister (an elementary school teacher by the way) that you and I would totally be friends if we ever chatted. And I will add to the list of reasons why that you used my two favorite things from the new release – the cling stamp and the giant XO die cut.
Both of these cards are simply amazing.
