Cards With Bella Blvd

Happy Saturday!  
I'm bringing my Bella Blvd "Cards on Thursdays" just a couple of days late to the blog.
It seems like I'll have a dry-run for a few days and then have four different projects up
on the same day I'm trying to spread them all out :)

It seems like squares are all the rage these days and I just had to play along! 
Using a 1.25" square die cut, I created a quilt of colors from the Birthday Girl Collection.
 After mounting them onto a piece of cardstock, I machine stitched down the center of each row.
 I kept the top simple by adding on a couple of chipboard stickers and a "wishes" 
banner under the die-cut shape.
 Bella Blvd Supplies:
Birthday Girl: Celebrate, Party Dress, Alpha+Bits Stickers, Chipboard Icons; Button Market: Pink Flowers; Crochet Hearts: Gulf; High Five Alpha Stickers: Blue
Scallop Die by Lifestyle Crafts

 A small piece of feather gathered and tied made the cutest plume effect to the top of the
 chipboard firecracker! I attached the feather to the chipboard using a Ultra-Thin Glue Dot.
 I built a 4th of July collage using several components from the Alpha+Bits and
Just Write Journaling Stickers. So happy and festive, and I love the idea of displaying it on our
 Patriotic buffet table. Bring on Summer!

Bella Blvd Supplies:
All American: United We Stand, Seeing Stars, Alpha+Bits Stickers, Just Write Journaling Stickers, Chipboard Icons; Button Market: Stars; Feathers: Ice

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…
