I've now used all of the pretty stamps from the "New Season, New Wonder" collection from I Hearty {Ippity}.  I love a cherries motif coupled with dots and gingham.  I decided to go with a shabby look for this card, so I also added crumpled seam binding, pom pom trim and vintage buttons.  
For the stamping part, I didn't actually stamp.  I used REAL RED stamp pad from Stampin Up and OLIVE stamp pad from Close To My Heart.  I pressed the lid into the pads before opening.  I then dipped a watercolor pen into the lids and brushed the color onto the stamp...I was worried at first that the ink would dry before I got both colors applied, but they didn't.  I think that it turned out quite nice! Have a look
On the close-up you can see that I cut the stem from the image and used foam dots for the cherries and leaf.
The little dots on the tag?  Actually a fluke!  I had tea-dyed a whole lot of tags one day and in drying them (in the oven), this particular tag took on the design of the pan that I used to lay them on...pretty cool though!
Thanks for looking!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!


Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
