Color Chaos

It's time for a bit of "unlimited inspiration" from 
this week!  Today the new "Color Chaos" collection projects are being shared.
Check out the blog to see even more ideas :)

I have three cards that were designed for the booth at CHA:
“Count Your Blessings” card
By placing two of the diagonal striped patterns going in the opposite direction, an
 eye-catching herringbone pattern is created. The journal card is so beautifully done
 in color and fonts, so only a couple of embellishments were needed to complete the card. 
A small section of the scalloped border sticker was added with foam adhesive.

 Supplies: Color Chaos: Gulf Strandz, Peep Strandz, Orange Strandz, Just Write
 Journaling, Trinkets, Treasures & Text; Simply Spring: Chipboard Icons; Enamel Dots: Ice

 “Best Version of You” card
Use simple-shaped die-cuts to give a different look to journal cards. Here, I die-cut 
a mat from a Clear Cut sheet and then layered it on top patterned paper, which was 
cut the same size. The red enamel heart gave a pop of color to the journal card and
 the bottom was softened with the addition of a Bella Bow.

 Supplies: Color Chaos: Oreo Black Strandz, Gulf Strandz, Daily Details, Words of
 Wisdom, Trinkets; Clear Cut: Ice Confetti; Enamel DooDads: McIntosh; Bella Bows: Ice

 "Celebrate Today" card
Cut a mat to be the same height as the 3X4 journal card; center the journal card horizontally 
and then flank each side with pieces of the scalloped border sticker. Adding enamel dots 
to the centers of the scallops gives extra dimension and also draws attention to the 
outline of the shape. Embellish with a cute chipboard shape and the card is complete!

 Supplies: Color Chaos: McIntosh Strandz, Ice Strandz, Words of Wisdom, 
Treasures & Text; Ciao Chipboard: Flowers & Clouds; Enamel Dots: Bell Pepper

It was such fun and a pleasure to once again meet up with the Bella Blvd 
team at the show!  The booth looked absolutely adorable and the contributing
designers' projects were seriously amazing!  Stay tuned for more new
projects in the coming weeks.
Have a great weekend!

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…
