Copper Mountain Giveaway!

A few of us at Bella Blvd were invited to 
make a couple of cards with the "Copper Mountain" Scrapbook Kit by

Studio Calico has been gracious enough to offer a Copper Mountain Card Kit
to one of my lucky readers :)  Be sure to leave a comment on this post 
and we'll have a drawing next Monday!

The kit includes an exclusive wood veneer piece that I cut down to fit the card size.  
I backed the veneer with punched circles of paper from the 6X6 Paper Pad and then 
traced the shape onto the green diamond paper, cut out and adhered to the back.

Also found in the kit is the 12X12 "Snapshots" patterned paper by Bella Blvd.  
Using a few watercolor pencils by Faber Castell, I colored in the houses and clouds
found in the design of the paper and then trimmed out.  
You will also find the small heart print (which is Side "B" of the Snapshots paper)
in the 6X6 Paper Pad; here I die-cut it into an oval shape and then stamped the sentiment
(from the exclusive stamp set) over to the side.
One of the sweet puffy heart stickers, found in the kit,  was added to the door front.

The Copper Mountain Scrapbook Kit is still available, along with a couple of the
other monthly kits!  Check them out at Studio Calico!

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…
