What's New Wednesday

Every Wednesday the newest products are featured at Bella Blvd!
My two cards feature the new collection, "Christmas Countdown",
 and a few trusty accessories from the Button Market and Designer Tape aisle :)

"Just Be Merry" A2 Card
  I drew inspiration from the snowflakes on the Christmas Cuties paper.
 I started with a snowflake embossed card and layered on snowflakes that I die cut from
 various sections of patterned paper (the white/red stripe paper is actually a part of a journal card).
 After threading each button with white crochet thread, I attached them to the center of each
 snowflake with a thin glue dot.

 Supplies:
Christmas Countdown: Borders, Christmas Cuties, Daily Details, Alpha+Bits; 
Trick or Treat: Spooky Town; Button Market: Red Flowers

 "Oh Christmas Tree" A2 Card
 For this card, I wanted to bring the cute tree on the journal card more into focus.
To do so, I used a tree die (or a triangle would work too) and cut the shape from the
 red chevron pattern of the Christmas Paper. I always forget about this technique,
but it's one that I love the effect of: with a piercing tool and mat, I outlined the shape
of the die cut tree. I think it fits in nicely with the blanket stitching and gingham patterned paper!

 Supplies:
Christmas Countdown: Daily Details, Christmas, O Tannenbaum, Alpha+Bits, 
Captions; Designer Tape: Combo; Button Market: Neutral Mix

 I've added these two cards to my growing stack of handmades that I plan on sending
out this Christmas.  For extra-bulky cards, such as these, I like to keep them close to home
so that postage doesn't become too costly.  We have a 'mailbox' system at our church where
members can place their cards in alphabetized slots.  At the end of services, there is always
a huge crowd going through the mail to collect their cards...a lot of my church family will
be getting handmade this year LOL!

See you tomorrow!

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…
