Love & Blessings

Unity Stamp Blog Hoppers
You should be arriving here from the blog of the talented and sweet Renee Aslette.
 Should something go awry during the hop, just head back over to the 

For this hop I've broken out some brand new stamps
that I haven't had a chance to work with yet.  
They've been eyeing me and I've been eyeing them right back ;)

I love any round stamp that can be punched out with one of my circle punches!
The "Count Your Blessings" image is from the
Country Pumpkin Chowder by Jillibean Soup
 I coupled it with different papers and journal spots from Jillibean :)

I've loved this next stamp, "Sending My Love" for quite some time. 
 I made this next card  with a very special friend in mind ♥


 I used a combination of colored pencils, water-color pencils and Zig Markers.
After shading with the colored pencils I went back over with a coordinating
water-color pencil and then blended with water. I was also able to obtain
some shadows and shading with this method as well.
After stamping the main image, I went back and added some red ink
to the 'flag' on the stamp and then stamped the image and cut out.  I love the 
3-D effect that it gives along with the silver brad.

That wraps it up for me on this it's time to have a 
visit with the stamping sensation, Shilo Miles!

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…
