Bella Pinspired Cards

Who doesn't love perusing Pinterest for a bit of inspiration!?!
I love this Thursday assignment for Bella Blvd using a single photo from Pinterest:

The inspiration photo spoke color and design to me, so for this card I chose to go
 with the rainbow color scheme. I love stars for boys' birthday cards so I gathered a few
 of them from the Captions Stickers, Paper Pieces and Ciao Chip!  For the center of the
 card I wanted a small sentiment, so I pulled one of the Birthday Boy flags from the pin and
 attached it to the star with foam adhesive. A little border sticker at the bottom not only
 adds color, but anchors the design.

 Supplies:Trick or Treat: Paper Pieces; Christmas Countdown: Alpha+Bits;
 Play Date: Captions, Daily Details, Chasing Rainbows; Ciao Chip Elements: Stars & Hearts;
 Flags:Birthday Boy 2; Button Market: Pickle Squares

 I love the horizontal line of the leaves found in the inspiration photo, so I chose that aspect
 for the design of this card. First, I adhered strips of Designer Tape to cardstock and 
then trimmed out. I cut the same-sized strips from the "Leaf Storm" paper and then 
placed them in an alternating pattern before stitching in place. Before adding the tape strips,
 I cut one end of each into a V and then added to the card with foam adhesive. 
A simple "hello" spelled out with stickers and small leaf die-cut completes
 this clean-and-simple design.

 Supplies: Trick or Treat: Leaf Storm, Spooky Town; High Five Alphabet Stickers: Black-White; Button Market: Pickle Squares; Designer Tape: Polka Dot Combo, Pickle Juice Dot

I have boxes and boxes of cards...if you see a card that you're interested in, 
I just may be willing to part with it for a very reasonable price :)  
Feel free to email me or leave a comment on any post where the card(s) is pictured!
 Glad you've visited me today!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee!

**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
