Cards on Thursday


The large journaling sticker turned out to be the perfect size for adding the chipboard letters to.
 I layered the "V" by adding a foam dot under the bottom part of the letter and then allowing 
the adhesive to stick to the other letters below it. I hand-cut three of the hearts from the 
cute tree on the Borders & Cut-Outs paper and added then with foam dots. 

 Three "I Love You's" from the chipboard border was just the right length to go
 across the bottom of the journal sticker. 
 A little green bow brings out the color in the bottom border and adds texture and pop!

 I have to say that making this card was so much fun! 
I started with a cardstock paper just a bit smaller than the card-front. 
I then alternated different patterns of the Designer Tapes on a diagonal. 
To create a little extra texture, I machine stitched around the perimeter. 

 Next, a fun cluster of clouds, chipboard sun and sweet flags brought the card to life! 
I mostly love that with this sentiment, it can be given for most any occasion.

 For this card, I started with a lace die that I used to create a shape in the base paper,
 as well as to create background shape for the focal point. After adhering the base paper directly to the card-front, I used foam dots to give dimension to the inset piece.

  A smaller oval shape of patterned paper was attached and then topped with the adorable ice-cream cone cut-out. The small alpha stickers are in a size that's perfect for cardmakers!

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…
