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!

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…
