Feelin' Groovy?

Feelin' a little groovy?
Need to get into the groove?
If you answered YES to either of these questions, then you must have this new stamp set
from Ippity
 It's just been released today, so inquire about it if you don't see it listed in the stamp shop.

For my card I decided to do something a little different, although you really can't tell too much just from the photo.  I dusted off the 'ole coloring pencils, gave them a sharpen and went to work!
You know me, I cut out the image, flecked it with a bit of brown spritz and popped it onto the card with foam dots.  I wanted the baker's twine 'bow' to resemble the actual bow...for this, I stitched back and up (twice) the length of the bow runner and then tied into generous loops at the top.  A small dab of Zig glue holds down the ends of the baker's twine nicely.  Finish it off with a few colorful buttons and you. are. done.
Quick & Easy!
We're expecting up to 8 inches of rain over the next few days...much needed, but like everything else:  just wished it wouldn't all come at one time.  God has to be asking Himself "are these people EVER happy?"
So, if I don't float away, I'll be back in a day or two :)
Be Blessed


  1. What a groovy card...I love the car and how you wrapped twine around the top. Cute little buttons add such a great touch. Great design Shellye!!

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…
