Thursday Hip Hoppin'

  Greetings to all of our Unity friends
hoppin' with us today!
Welcome to my contribution to this week's hop.
Also, I'm sharing a couple of things that I had posted on 
the Unity Blog over the weekend, but haven't shared here you may (or may not) have all ready seen those :)
Here is a list of participating blogs in order:
 Unity Blog
Angie Blom
Jen Buck
Lisa Arana
Renee Aslette
Shellye McDaniel (you're here!)
Stephanie Muzzulin

On this card I've used the 
Webster/Unity Co-branded stamp: Dream Big

First, I stamped the butterfly image onto the yellow patterned paper
(from Webster Pages' Girl Land Collection).  I cut the blue patterned paper
to fit the card front and then, using a square die, cut a window from the center.
Using the same square die and one a little larger, I cut a green frame that I added to
the blue paper with a low-thickness foam dots. 
I then went back and stamped the butterfly image again onto different papers
from the Girl Land Collection, glittered them and then attached over the stamped
image...I love the 3-D effect ♥
 This past Sunday I hosted the Kit-of-the-Month blog post at Unity.
Here are the two pieces that I shared

I used the August Kit-of-the-Month to create the tag above.  
I have instructions on how I put it together up on the Unity blog post :)

I love that the KOTMs have both larger and smaller images for you
to work with.  Backgrounds, sentiments, icons and images are all represented!

Time now for a visit to the talented and sweet Stephanie Muzzulin!

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…
