Carefree & Epiphany

I'm really excited to be sharing my portion of the
Blog Hop!

First up is a super, super quick and easy project that literally took a few minutes to put together. 
 Now mind you, the bracelet is one that I all ready had...but it was plain, 
so what better way to dress it up than
with a cute little bauble!

 To create the charm, I used Epiphany Round #14 Circle Punch,
Charm and Bubble Cap and a little "peek" of  an upcoming collection, "LIVELY," 
with the adorable bird motif.  Using a bit of jewelry wire, I looped the charm 
together along with a couple of spare mushroom caps and pearl from another old bracelet. 
 That's it!  Hangs just beautifully and is just the right amount of blingage!
Next is a card of Carefree enjoyment!
I love layering...I don't make a card that's flat, so you will notice that I've layered 
several different patterns from Carefree onto this card. I've used a scalloped punch, 
a circle punch and created a little pleating for the ribbon of paper that sits under the focal point.

After hand-cutting one of the Carefree butterflies, 
I embellished it and the sides with three of the Epiphany Bubble Caps
 that I applied to bits of patterned paper.  I use my sewing machine on almost everything,
 but I also added a hand-stitched X and two dashes in black to help establish
 that visual triangle that I'm so fond of.

Authentique and Epiphany both have Prize Packs to give away to lucky
commenters of their blogs, so be sure to stop by (click photo at top) and leave a 
comment if you'd like to participate :)

I'll be back tomorrow with the kick off to the I Heart Ippity Blog Hop!
See y'all then!

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…
