Cards With Bella

Good Evening
I need to share my Bella Blvd cards for this week
before I forget!  Normally, it's Cards Thursday, but this week,
due to a BIG reveal tomorrow, we're having Cards Tuesday :)

 I simply adore the characters from the "Too Cute to Spook" Collection!
This little mummy guy looks as though he should be holding something, so I 
thought "banner!"  I took two matching Stick Pin Flags and a 
Miniature Sticker and  made a banner that was pretty quick and easy to do.
Turn the two pins so that the pointy ends are facing each other.  
wrap the tab from the sticker over the pins and then attach to your card 
with foam dots on each piece.  I tied on a couple of buttons to hide the
Too Cute To Spook: The Boo Crew, Full Moon, Cute Cuts, Miniature Stickers; Button Market: Aqua Flowers; Flags: Birthday Boy 1, Birthday Boy 2; Designer Tape: Jail Bird

 I love my leaf punch as I think every flower needs a leaf or two!
 For this card I created the leaves by adhering a bit of Decorative Tape 
to a piece of cardstock and then punched out. I did something similar with a chipboard tree
 (seen HERE) by covering with strips of tape and then machine stitching the seams together! 

Flirty: Bits A Bella, Label Additions Stickers, Heart Throb Paper; Sophisticates: Sprinklers & Lace Plum Paper; Ciao Chip Elements: Stars & Hearts; Designer Tape: Pickle Juice Chevron; Button Market: Hot Pink Flowers

Check back tomorrow for the newest

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…
