Hello Birdie

Another short stint in my stamping room, and more card parts:)

This bird was already cut and colored and mounted on foam squares, so I combined him/her with another scrap on my table - the white strip with the lines embossed with my Scor-Pal. I added the "hello" which I cut using one of my new Darice sentiment dies. I matted the white piece with a leftover scrap from the piece I covered the card front with. I also mounted the sentiment panel on foam squares. The patterned paper is from a new Bo Bunny pad I got for half price at JoAnn's.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Calendar Files Uploaded

Just a short "FYI" post for today. Yesterday afternoon I added the links to the Excel files for the calendars for 2018 and 2019. You can find the links in the tab under my blog title.

I'd love to hear from you if you use them! (Thanks, Sharon, for the nudge I needed to get the new ones uploaded!)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Stenciled Birthday

When I ordered some new embossing folders last month, I also got one set of sentiment dies and one stencil. For today's cards, I used different parts of the stencil. The stencil is by The Crafter's Workshop and has eight small patterns on it. For each card, I used a different design and a stamp from a Stampendous birthday set.

I used purple distress ink applied with a sponge on this first card. I added three flowers that I got in a pack from Hobby Lobby last summer. You can't tell by the picture, but they are glittery.
For this second card, I used Stampin' Up! ink and a stipple brush. I added three black "nail heads." The panel is mounted on foam squares.
This one again uses distress ink applied with a sponge, and is also mounted on foam squares.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

More Christmas Joy

I had previously stamped and colored this image from Inkadinkado with Copic markers. I also added some sparkle with Wink of Stella on the bell. I simply matted with black and added to a scrap of green that was sitting on my table. The image and the cardbase are ivory.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Christmas Joy

More card parts - a great way to get one's mojo back! :)

These three stamped and matted letters were in my card parts. I mounted them on foam squares and added them to a strip of red that was also in with my card parts. The letters are from a Stampin' Up! alphabet set (I believe, anyway) and were cut out with a punch. The matting was done with a punch, too. I had first used a pearl-y shimmery paper for the embossed background, but it was too "fancy" for the whimsical letters, so I did it again with plain white cardstock. The snowflake embossing folder is from Sizzix. I've now got a start on my 2017 Christmas cards!
