Newton's Nook October New Release Reveal #1

Happy Monday and Welcome to Day #1 of the 
Holiday Release for October 2014

Today's stamp reveal is "Winston's Home For Christmas"

I love the homespun feel that Winston evokes, so I went with
a distress tag, gingham and jute to decorate this kraft gift box!

After stamping Winston onto a cream textured cardstock (with Staz On),
I watercolored the image and then distressed with Walnut Ink spray.
The image was cut out with an oval die and then distressed around the edges.

 The sentiment was stamped onto a strip of patterned paper and then trimmed
out in a banner-tag fashion.

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!

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…
