I hope you all had a great weekend. For those of you in the Northeast and New England areas, I hope you are all safe and warm. We have friends that live in Franklin, MA and they have been giving us updates on the piling snow. I'm headed to Chicago tomorrow for the week. I expect to be pretty cold after checking the weather channel for this week's forecasted temps.
I didn't get much stamping time this weekend, but I did manage to finish a couple cards this afternoon. (I should have been packing, but I'm really good at procrastinating.) This card I made after checking out this week's The Paper Players challenge. It's a fun bird theme this week. Here's what I came up with:
The layout comes from the Case This Sketch #110 challenge. I pulled out some older SU stamp sets and inks. The flower is stamped in Crushed Curry ink, then I used the Dusty Durango marker to color over the center before stamping onto Very Vanilla card stock. The sentiment is stamped in Dusty Durango ink. I colored in the flower at the top of the sentiment using the Crushed Curry marker, then added a tiny yellow rhinestone to the center of the flower. The bird is stamped in Dusty Durango as well and fussy cut. Notice a second tiny yellow rhinestone in the center of her wing. The leaves are cut from retired SU DSP in matching colors. For added embellishment, I rounded the lower right corner and tied some yellow embroidery thread at the top.
Stamps: SU sets Betsy's Blossoms and Swirls and Curls Verses
Paper: SU Very Vanilla card stock
Ink: SU Crushed Curry and Dusty Durango
Other: Taylored Expressions leaf die, Taylor's Tiny Twinkles rhinestones, yellow embroidery floss, the Big Shot and dimensionals
Thats' all from me tonight. I really do need to get that packing done! Have a great week.
Thanks for checking in,
