Mixed & Matched

It's Mix & Match day at 
 and I have two cards to share combining the
 three new collections: Hello Sunshine, Pen Pals & Switchboard

For this card, I selected elements from the Switchboard and Pen Pals collections. 
  When making cards, I like to use the 6X6 Paper Pads since the designs are at a smaller scale. 
 The reddish tones in the two collections are different, so I chose to use only pieces from 
Switchboard that boasted the color. From there I picked the subtle pink and navy,
 which can be found in both lines. 

I used two nesting, scrolled dies from Spellbinders to create the layering pieces of patterned paper.
 I wanted to tie back in with the Chain Letter Paper (triangular grid) found on the base of the card,
so I die-cut a small oval on which the chipboard phone was attached to. I trimmed off the ‘hello’
 from the ‘hello friend’ puffy sticker before adhering. The Pen Pals’ Chipboard Alphabet
 letters in tiny banner shapes are a great size for cards!

This next card is a mixture of Pen Pals and Hello Sunshine. As with the first card, I selected
 the different papers that held some of the same colors in both collections. Here, I chose the
 yellow tones from Hello Sunshine and used only blues from the Pen Pals Collection
The reds and pinks from both lines match, so I was free to add any of those in from either collection. 

I love the diagonal pink/red striped paper from Pen Pals. The lines juxtapose about every inch, 
so I used that as my guide for cutting the banner strips of paper, which I attached with foam adhesive.
 Again, I focused only on the yellow hue from Hello Sunshine and tried to keep the Pen Pals
 colors focused on the red, pink and navy.

Pink Paislee has also shared a glimpse of their new Summer collection: Solstice

 Gold foam stickers....yummy!

That's all from 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…
