Cupid Shaker Card and New Die Storage

Don't you love it when you discover something in your crafty stash you had completely forgotten about?  ;)  This is the case on my card today.  I had forgotten about this Stamps of Life grid die.   I got new thin metal die storage recently and I thought you would like to see photos of it.  ;)  The photo below is the door going into my craft room.  But behind the door is where my new die storage is and I love it!

I got vinyl magnetic sheeting and hung it on the wall.  We used a metal strip at the top and bottom (for thin carpet or linoleum) to anchor the magnetic piece to the wall.  We purchased the magnetic vinyl from a sign printing company here in town.  It comes in a roll and is 24 inches wide.  You can have it cut any length you want (mine is 6 feet long).  It is white on the side where things are printed and the back side is black and magnetic  (which is the side you expose for the dies to stick to).  If you are wondering what is in the hanging shoe storage bag, it is punches.   

It is hidden behind the door.  I am using this storage for odds and ends because I had outgrown the box storage on my desk.  This box is full of nested dies and is handy when I am working.  But the storage on the wall is wonderful for seeing your dies and knowing what you maybe I won't forget a I did  with the grid die on this card.  ;)
Now back to my shaker card.  Winnie & Walter is celebrating their fourth year of business during the month of February with some fun challenges.  This card is for Lea's Shaker Card Challenge with a love theme.  I used some gold Cupid confetti and tiny micro red beads in the four shaker squares along the bottom.  The Cupid is from my stash and is a Jolee's Boutique sticker.  The stamps are by Winnie & Walter (Sending You Set).  I'm going to be joining these challenges with my Cupid Shaker Card:

Wow, Bev, what an awesome card! I love the way you've taken that Tic Tac Toe challenge and made it your own. Great choice of elements to use. Having those cupid sequins inside the shaker is brilliant. Love that fancy Cupid from your stash, as well. Great choice of stamps to go with this layout and theme. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Great Valentine's Day "love" card Bev. It has so many great elements. Love how you used the Tic Tac Toe challenge for this great card. The cupids are sweet and I love the way you used the grid die to create your wonderful shaker card. Thanks so much for joining us at the Watercooler Wednesday "Anything Goes" challenge this week.

Bev I forgot to congratulate and thank you for sharing your storage tips. That magnetic sheeting is really cool. Love it!

I really like that you made this a shaker card. Lovely. Like all card makers, I love to see new storage ideas. I love yours. I think a lot of sign printing companies are going to see crafters coming in when people see your idea.

So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas.
