Pumpkin Spice Duo

It's almost time for Fall decorating and today
I have this set of pumpkin jars to share at 
SIMPLE STORIES
www.simplestories.com


Create this pumpkin duo with your favorite pieces from the "Pumpkin Spice" Collection,
 a couple of recycled glass jars and burnt orange acrylic paint!

Before decorating either jar, a generous amount of burnt orange acrylic paint was
 squirted into the bottom.  After reattaching the lid (securely), the jar was shaken 
and rolled around until the interior was completely coated.  Next, I placed the jars
 upside down onto a thick mat of newspaper and allowed the excess paint to drip off. 
 You may need a sponge brush just to touch up some spots if needed. 
 I also used a heat tool (or hair dryer) to complete the drying process.

The largest pumpkin is a standard Mason jar size.  To it, I cut a strip of 
"Autumn Splendor" paper to 3.75"X12" and taped it in place around the jar with
 high tack adhesive.  I used a couple of dies that I had on hand to create a cute tag
 for the front.  The tag was distressed around the edges with a walnut ink and
 then embellished with goodies from Pumpkin Spice.

The second pumpkin is a smaller 2.75"X5" jar.  The same paper was cut to 2.5"W
 and just enough to wrap around the jar completely.  After threaded the chipboard
 buttons with jute, they were attached with a glue dot.

The bands of the lids were covered in a strip of the turquoise barn wood paper
 from the Simple Basics pack.  A wooden spools was inked with walnut ink 
and added to the top for the stem.

What an adorable display or gift for the upcoming Autumn season!
  I can't wait to share them with my visiting guests soon.  I hope you've enjoyed!

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…
