Unity {Inspiration}

Welcome to this Thursday's 
and the release of several new Phyllis Harris stamps!
You will see a lot of sweet examples today with the new images...I had to work ahead
early so I went with the April Kit-of-the-Month for my two cards :)
First order of business though:
**You should be arriving here from Renee Aslette's Blog**
A $20 Unity Gift Certificate will be awarded to THREE lucky commentors, so be sure
to say "hello" before you leave each blog!

I was so excited to try out my brand new polka dot embossing folder from Lifestyle Crafts!
And I just happened to have the exact size circle punch for the touch of black.
For those gorgeous red lips, I stamped the image with Martha Stewart's Glue Pad 
and then glittered with red.  I hand-cut the lips from the red cardstock and then attached it
to the white paper with foam dots.

 I love these wedding bells...they're so nostalgic and remind me of a 1950's wedding.
I stamped the bells onto a white and light blue textured cardstock by American Crafts.  
After cutting the bells from the blue paper, I glittered the one side by using a fine-point glue pen
(Martha Stewart) and then sprinkled with silver glitter.  By using the fine-point pen I was able
to dot a couple of the areas with glitter on the other bell.

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…
