Um Wow, Avery Elle & May Arts Ribbon

Welcome to day #1 of the 
We hope to load you up with a week's work of fun ideas!
There are three sets of prizes along the way too:
  • 1 Stamp Set
  • 1 roll of ribbon
  • 1 mask, flair set & layered chipboard set
Just be sure to leave a comment as you visit the May Arts Blog and others.

I incorporated bits of ribbon from May Arts, some stamped and cut-out hearts
(and sentiment) from Avery Elle and a few chipboard banners and circles from Um Wow
in creating this really quick card!

7/8" ribbon works perfectly to fill in the openings of the chipboard banner windows.
Add a bead of fabric glue around the edge and then press the ribbon in place.  

For the hearts, I first stamped them onto a textured white cardstock with 
black Staz-On ink.  I used different shades of watercoloring pencils by Faber Castell
and then blended the colors with a water brush.  

I wanted a very hap-hazard and unintentional look, especially with the heart placement.
I added a small foam square to the back of each and then arranged them around the
top of the banner.  The small circle shapes gave the hearts some texture and tied
back in with the banners.

In finishing, I used the same black Staz On ink for the sentiment at the bottom.
Some bright papers by Doodlebug Design to match the ribbon banners and my card is complete!

Here is a Ribbonista line-up of this week's hop:

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…
