Pinterest Inspired With Bella Blvd

It's Pinterest Inspired Thursday at 
and we have this adorable, crafty photo as our inspiration:

Here are my two cards based on the inspiration found in the photo:

“Thankful For You” card
I was inspired by the tall, vertical pumpkins in the Pinterest photo, 
so I created a vertical woodgrain panel by cutting three strips, attaching them
 to a square of cardstock and then stitching them together. The strip of pumpkins
 and sentiment was inspired by the small cluster of pumpkins in the photo.

Supplies: Hello Autumn: Trinkets, Treasures & Text, Borders, Day Dream, 
Gatherings, Perfect Pick; Button Market: Wood Mix

“Pumpkin Pair” card
For this card I went for the total look of the pumpkins represented in the Pinterest photo.
 After die-cutting the circle shapes, I inked around the edges with a darker orange ink. 
Next, I die cut the leaves and stem and inked around those as well. I chose to turn
 the larger pumpkin into a jack 'o lantern by adding two enamel dots for the eyes
 and the letter "D" for the mouth. I used a black pen to color in one of the
 diamond shapes for the nose!

 Supplies: Halloween Magic: Pumpkin Parade, Boo Buddies, Hocus Pocus, 
Goblin Treats, Treasures & Text; Hello Autumn: Gatherings 

More ideas are showcased on the Bella Blog :)
Happy Thursday!

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…
