SN@P, Crackle, Bliss!

A happy weekend to all of you!  I'm up today at 
  with a trio of fun cards using SN@P, Vintage Bliss and 24/Seven :)  
First we'll start with a "HELLO"

And who wouldn't smile after seeing a bright and cheery Hello from SN@P
 I was so happy that I got to use some of the new Flair Buttons and Chipboard pieces. Simple Stories has hit it out of the park with the addition of these new embellishments!
I love using the Pockets even if there isn't anything 'in' the pocket :) The decorative edge and the pattern lends so much to the design...for this card I simply attached one of the SN@P Label Stickers into the pocket and then added some hand-stitching to the top.  

And how about a "Dream Big" for one of the guys (or girl...but this just looks masculine to me!)

I know I say this a lot, but it's true for me:  
let elements such as 3x4 Journaling Cards do the work for you :)  
Once I've selected the perfect Journaling Card for my card then I move on to pick out stickers, chipboard, etc., that will complete the sentiment that I'm wanting to achieve.
And if you haven't tried it, implement a bit of hand-stitching to soften and add texture.
  There are many times that I don't use my sewing machine, but I still must stitch LOL!

Finally, ahhhh....some "Sweet Bliss"

I absolutely (seriously) had a blast making this card!  After texturing the cardfront with an embossing folder (Lifestyle Crafts), I decided to keep the design cropped to just a circle of beauty.  I used two different sizes of scalloped dies (Lifestyle Crafts) and then matted the centers of each with a circle that was machine stitched in place.  A couple of Chipboard Embellishments and 3-D Layered Stickers and my card is complete!

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…
