Operation Write Home

May Arts Ribbon is proud to support our nation’s deployed heroes through
 Operation Write Home®
 This organization has sent over one million cards overseas so our service members can
 keep in touch with their loved ones while they’re away.  I hope you enjoy all the projects 
we’re sharing on our blog – and take some time to check out OWH’s blog and all the 
others participating, starting at the top of the hop. You’ll be inspired!

I had a lot of fun making this card and using one of the sketch's 
offered by Operation Write Home:



For the base of the card, I used a star print by Doodlebug Design.
Next, I cut a mat of white cardstock and then covered with the chevron ribbon, followed
by bands of polka dot ribbon.  The puffy stars were cut apart from their strand and
added with fabric glue.  And I LOVE the new red/white/blue baker's twine!
Finally, I added a few sticker letters by Doodlebug Design.  Before
attaching them, I used a small dab of fabric glue to the back of each letter.

Come on over and see all of the beautiful cards made by the May Arts Ribbonistas!
AND there's a chance to win 2 spools of yummy ribbon :)

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…
