La Rue Shaker

I am so excited!

I've made my first shaker card!


My DD #2 gave me a fuse tool and bags for Christmas.

I was amazed at how easy it was to use this tool!

I figured I'd fill the trash can before I could get it right.

This is the first try.

Hope it isn't beginner's luck and the last time it works for me.

DD will be getting this card.

Using the same heart die (I love this die) and embossing folder,
I did this card.

These are stunning! I love shaker cards but hate the process, so maybe a fuse tool is what I need too! The sequins are just gorgeous! That die is beautiful, used either way!

Barb said...

Well Done Bonnie making your first shaker. I made one years ago and got in a sticky mess.

Yours is absolutely gorgeous. You wonder you're delighted. The red heart card is very lovely too. Both beautiful work. Barbxx

Two fabulous cards Bonnie! I have to confess I haven't made a shaker card yet but the fuse tool is on my "want/need" list!

Bev said...

I saw your card on Splitcoaststampers, and had to stop by your blog. I love both cards on this post. Wonderful job for the first time!

Spectacular CARDS.. I truly like the shaker card, Great job.

Marcia HIll said...

Ooooooh...these are both SO pretty Bonnie! I love that heart die and think I need to check that out, and the embossing folder is just perfect for these cards too! Darnell did a post a while back with shaker cards and the fuse tool, and so of course I had to order it, and now it sits on my shelf...grrrr! Think I need to break open that package and use it! Anyway, both of your cards are just lovely!! :0)

Now I must be the last person that has never made a shaker card! Yours came out beautifully! That die is gorgeous! Love both cards!

Gorgeous cards Bonnie! Awesome job on your first fuse tool shaker. I may need to add it to my wish list.

Hi Bonnie,
I saw your card on the SSS Challenge and had to come over to check out your blog! These cards are beautiful. I love this Memory Box die!! Might have to get it! So...the fuse tool, huh? I have had mine for a few months and was very excited when I got it. I actually never made a shaker card before I bought the fuse tool! So, naturally I used it. This was back in October for Halloween cards. Only issue I had was that the fused pocket was so flat, I wasn't sure if the pieces would shake nicely! Two days ago I made a shaker card and did NOT use the fuse. I think I like that better!! I'm curious what you think and would love to hear from you. Jeanne (jeannes.cards@gmail.com)

The first card Bonnie is possibly the prettiest shaker card I have ever seen and the second card with that red heart catches the eye as it really pops! Have a lovely evening my friend! Hazel xx

Such a beautiful heart die Bonnie. Looks amazing done in white and the red foil. LOVE the shaker with the pretty mix of sequins. Looks like the fuse tool needs to go on my wish list. :) xx

These are both so pretty but the red one is spectacular

Doris said...

Your first shaker card? and it's this gorgeous??? I'm blown away!

JosieD said...

These cards are both so eye catching. I love how you venture into new things like the fuse tool. And the heart die from red foil on that EF-- wowzer!

Daffodil Cards said...

GORGEOUS shaker and love the red in the second card too. Both such beautiful cards.

Sandy said...

Okay - you sold me -- just ordered this fuse tool -- I have never made a shaker card and I love them. I am hoping that this will solve my scaredy cat approach to cards!! Your card is beautiful - please kiss you DD #2 (she is #1 in my book). So let's see where your lead takes me Bonnie!

Both of these cards are just lovely. I especially love the bright red, shiny heart. Your shaker card came out great. Good for you!

Susan said...

Wow! This is a fabulous first ever shaker card! I love it. And your DD will be so pleased to see the result of her gift. I also love the non-shaker version - so elegant!

MaryH said...

One of the most beautiful of the MBox heart dies, and used to perfection on each of these gorgeous cards. Well done on the shadow box. Lots of complex designing on #1, and each little technique looks wonderful. Love the shaker & well done with the new tool. Also love the rich elegance of the gleaming red on #2. You've been a busy little crafter!!! TFS &Hugs

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Wow! The La Rue as a shaker card! And again as a fancy schmancy elegant card! I love them both. I was just looking thru my heart dies and I have the La Rue. It's pretty big.

Brenda said...

Wow, what stunning cards Bonnie! I am totally loving that heart die! Yay for you making a shaker card. You did great! I have only heard good things about the Fuse, glad you like it. I don't think it is beginners luck, I think you will be able to do it again without any problems. The heart die keeps calling my name to find one to bring home to my house to live! lol Very elegant cards Bonnie. Hugs, Brenda

JoAnn said...

Oh Bonnie, these are beautiful I love that LaRue Heart die too. You did a beautiful job using it for your shaker card and the pretty red heart card.

Bożena Adamusińska said...

Two beautiful card. Very elegant and perfect for lovers.
I have also seen your cards with watercolor lessons - extraordinary work, and I envy you the opportunities to participate in this course.
hugs,

Beautiful and elegant card. Love the shaker card and the embossing on the panel. Fabulous designs! Thanks for playing along with us in the "Love is in the Air" challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week!

Visiting from seeing your wonderful shaker card at Memory Box Shake It Baby Ch. You did a wonderful job & the die is so pretty. Do not have a fuse tool. The process to make a shaker card is longer than other cards. Have a BEE-utiful day!

Oh these are so beautiful, Bonnie! Love that die as a shaker & the ef is so elegant!

Darnell J Knauss said...

I'm sure it's not beginner's luck, Bonnie! Isn't that fuse tool so cool for making shaker's?! That die (which I'm loving!) works SO beautifully for a shaker and I love it on your second card, too! Well done!! Hugs, Darnell

Laura said...

So very pretty and elegant! Thank you so much for participating in the Memory Box challenge.

Bobby said...

I love that heart, Bonnie, and it makes a beautiful shaker card. I can't believe it's your first. I have made a few but I have the Fuse tool on my wish list hoping it will make shakers easier.
