Love & Marriage

continues with sneak peeks of their wonderful new products!
Today it's Love & Marriage

And today I have a card featured on the blog!
A wedding cake with decorative swirls of frosting and 
a bouquet of sugar flowers...that's what this card reminds me of!  
Top it off with a beautiful wedding gown and it just screams "let's get married!"
  I started with a plain white card that I embossed (hence the decorative swirls of frosting) 
and then began layering with soft hues from the "Love & Marriage" Collection.  
 For the focal point, I cut an oval shape from the "Cake Tasting" paper 
and then added the chipboard gown to its top. 
After attaching the hand-cut heart with foam dots,
 I then simply embellished with the sweet flag stickers...just add to the heart with a thin foam dot.  

Finally, the crochet heart added the soft touch and the pop 
of green leaves is just enough, but not too much color to complete the card.

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

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…
