Love Birds

The challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments is all about a photo inspiration.  This love bird photo is SO adorable and I am intrigued by how the birds are snuggled and intertwined on the branch.  So, for my card I went SUPER literal and included two red glittery birds.

Happy Birthday Made Easy!

Hello and welcome to another fabulous Hand Stamped Sentiment's Sketch Challenge. This is a great sketch and with a layout ready to go in combination with the Everyday Occasions Card Kit I was done with this card in just a few minutes. I did add a few Basic Rhinestones which are not in the kit and I grabbed Coastal Cabana, Summer Starfruit, and Calypso Coral Stampin' Write Markers to ink up my stamp and complete the challenge. Pop over to the Hand Stamped Sentiments blog and join us for a fun sketch.

A Stash of Tags

For today's Monday Montage I thought I would share my stash of tags that I made featuring the Season of Style Journaling tags.  I am excited to add these to all my packages!  Take a look and enjoy!

Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge

The time has come for another color challenge for the design team and any and all of you at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  For this challenge you need to include Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, and Baked Brown Sugar.  I do realize that it's that time of year to be stamping and whipping up cards and tags for the season, but the colors just were not saying Christmas to me.  I am sure on another day they might but they definitely didn't when I was creating this 3" x 6" tall card.  
Layered under the panel of Cherry Cobbler card stock,which I punched with the Chevron Punch, is a piece of Sweater Weather DSP.  I little background stampin' with the Beautifully Baroque image was the look I was going for to set the stage for my burlap ribbon rose.  The "thanks" image is from the Thank You Photopolymer set and the scrunchy yellow leaf is a leftover from my Thanksgiving Tablescape pack.

Seeing Stars for Monday Montage

Welcome to our Monday Montage Blog Hop.  It's so good to be a part of such an amazing group of paper crafters.  It's also good to be back bloggin'.  I have been absent from my blog for the past several days and I have missed stampin' and sharing.  I pulled out my stamps from the Everyday Occasions kit to add a perfect greeting for my card.  I made this card this morning just for the fun of making whatever I wanted--what ever suited my fancy.  Now, as I write this post (later in the day) I know just who needs this star filled "Thinking of You" card.  This one is for Cari.
My card base is a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Soft Sky scored in half for a top fold.  I added a panel of I Am Me DSP and then a whole bunch of stars which I strung on Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine.  I markered up the greeting with Real Red and Basic Grey and then stamped it on Whisper White card stock.  A skinny strip of Silver Glimmer and a whole bunch of Basic Rhinestones to finish it all up.
