Sweet Robins

final-14

Free as a Bird is one fun set to create with for me!  The birds are just so stinkin’ cute sitting on the branch!  Notice the fun shape for the frame it is stamped on?  It’s from the new Stitched Nesting Dies!  There are several sizes and with the double stitching, you can use the negative piece as well as the original piece!  Paper saving always makes me happy!!

I created the background using the coordinating Bird Ballad DSP and Soft Suede stamped with the new Birch background stamp!  I love the new cling stamps, especially with the background stamps! You can use the Stamparatus to make your background come out perfect!  It sticks in place while you ink and clean the stamp!!

There are some darling embellishments in the Bird Ballad Trinkets!  I chose a key this card, but you can add a sprig, a flower, or a bow too!

To create the watercolor look, I did use the Stampin’ Blends: Calypso Coral (light/dark), Soft Suede (light/dark), Mossy Meadow (light/dark), and Crumb Cake (light/dark).  Then I went over where I wanted to blend and highlight with the Color Lifter.

Flowering Desert

img_2951

It has been a busy start to 2019!  After a whirlwind of events over the holidays and now I had a part time job fall into my lap!  My physical therapist for the past 4 years hired me for his new clinic. I have missed working with patients! BUT-I am still crafting my heart out!

I had my Occasions Open house last weekend and this card was featured!  I fell in love with the Flowering Desert set!  Succulents and cacti are everywhere now!  It’s a fun new image for making cards and other paper crafts!

I also used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits!  This is one set of dies you HAVE to have!  Paper saving, fun shapes, and that textured stitched look just adds great dimension to your creations!

Floral Fanfare Fold

Fanfare Fold II

I held a Fun Folds class today and this was one of the cards we made!  I like to mix up my cards to create that WOW factor!  This one was CASED from Lyssa Zwolanek’s Blog: Song of my Heart. She has great tutorials and her cards are just beautiful!! Instructions were adapted from her blog:

  • 4.25×5.5 inch cardstock base (Whisper White shown here)
  • 4×5.25 Night of Navy mat piece
  • 4.25×11 inch cardstock strip (Night of Navy shown here)
  • Simply Scored or other scoring tools
  • Tear n Tape or other strong adhesive
  • patterned paper of your choice (Floral Boutique shown here)
  • Score the cardstock strip at 1 1/2, 5, 3, 5 1/2 and 8 inches on the long side.
  • Attach the widest panel in the center of the cardstock base, using a strong adhesive since there will be a lot of tension on this piece.

Accordion-fold the rest of the strip, pressing each fold down firmly with your Bone Folder so that it will lay as flat as possible.

Decorate each panel as desired. Stagger your embellishments so they are all seen from the front when the card is closed. Here’s the measurements for the patterned paper layers:

  • 4 x 2.75 inches (largest back panel)
  • 4 x 2.25 inches (middle inside panel)
  • 4 x 1.25 inches (outside front panel DSP)
  • 4 x 2.25 inches (neutral cardstock or plain panel for writing message)

Fanfare Fold IIIFanfare Fold V

How fun would this be to get in the mail?  Thought the post office may require more postage!  I would also recommend to have them “hand cancel” it.
