Newton's Nook October Release Reveal Day #4

Happy Thursday and Welcome to Day #4 of the 
Holiday Release for October 2014

Today's stamp reveal is "Newton's Curious Christmas"

Up next is my favorite card of mine that I did for this week's reveal!
It all came together just the way I had planned:

I stamped the image onto white textured cardstock twice.
I colored Newton separately with a gray Le Plume marker and then
cut him out, except for the paws.

I colored in the snowman's scarf, nose, and bird with Le Plume Markers
and then used a scruffy brown ink pad to distress around the edges.

If you look closely, you can see a little sprinkling of clear glitter over part
of the snowman's side!
After cutting an oval shaped piece, I distressed the edge of it
with the same brown ink and then attached some ric rac trim.
Patterned papers are by Jillibean Soup and ribbon by Martha Stewart.

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…
