Newton's Nook October Reveal Day #3

Happy Wednesday and Welcome to Day #3 of the 
Holiday Release for October 2014

Today's stamp reveal is "Flaky Family"
The possibilities with this stamp set is just too many to list!
My first thought:  those personalized clay ornaments that you find 
at the mall or at a craft fair?  That is the look that I was going for,
but on a card instead. You could easily transfer the idea to an ornament though!

I selected a snowman/woman to represent each member of my family :)
I stamped them onto smooth, white cardstock and then trimmed out.
Next I decided the placement for each onto the blue striped background paper.

You can add some shading to the snowpeople with a dab of grey ink and 
a dauber or sponge.  For the faces I used pink chalk for the ladies' cheeks
and an orange pencil for the noses.  

The ribbon (by Martha Stewart) completed my sentiment and blends
in nicely with the beautiful base paper by Authentique!

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…
