Cards on Thursday

Time for some fun with Bella Blvd today!
There are a ton of really sweet cards up on the blog today, so don't miss it:

This card takes me back to the days of Jr. High when we learned to weave yarn to make pot-holders! 
After cutting a 3.5" X 3.5" piece of cardstock, I then layered it with strips of woven Designer Tapes.
 Just apply the tapes to a piece of paper and trim; use a tab of glue or small Glue Dot for the bottoms pieces so that they won't move around while weaving. For a finishing look, machine stitch around the perimeter.

Birthday Boy: Alpha+Bits Stickers, Chipboard Icons; Sophisticates: Sprinkles & Lace Ice; Freestyle Sophisticates: Freestyle McIntosh; Button Market: Blues; Designer Tapes: 12 mm Combo

 Using an oval shaped piece of cork as inspiration, I set out to create this island of fun card with the
 Sand & Surf Collection! Cork can be easily found at any craft-supply store. I love how it looks a lot like a sandy beach. I used strong-bonding Glue Dots to adhere the chipboard palm tree to the side of the cork.
 A perfectly peachy summer card!

Sand & Surf: Surfs Up, Paradise, Borders, Alpha+Bits Stickers, Chipboard Icons; High Five Alpha Stickers: Blue; Ciao Chip Elements: Borders; Button Market: Tie Dye

Glad to have you here today!

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…
