Those birds are so sweet, aren’t they? Did you notice the tiny little hearts in the upper right corner? They came from the birdie’s tail:)
So, I stamped the sentiment crooked on the pretty paper from the AWESOME Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack. Boy, was I bummed since the gold embossing turned out great:(
To fix my mistake, I just punched the sentiment out using my retired oval and scallop oval punches. I then mounted it and liked it better after my mistake (frown turned upside down:)
Can you believe I did not even notice until this weekend that the Birds and Blooms framelit/thinlits not only framed the stamped images in the Best Birds stamp set but also had three birds that are just cut out! Yea! Take a look…and they come in a bundle with 10% off both of them!
I thought I would play around with Lisa’s Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge # 61 at Stamp Ink Paper.
I chose BIRD-TREE-BLUE straight through the middle.
I used the Stampin’ Up Thoughtful Branches Bundle that is available through August 31 while supplies last. So glad I go it! It is really versatile- definitely a lot of things you can do with it.
Notice how the branches can be seen through the foliage? I used the tree framelit and attached it to the tree stump image that was cut with the coordinating framelit. The fun little cloud comes from the SU Sprinkles of Life stamp set and the Tree Builder Punch. I even tried another version of the card (below) with the apples in the stamp set. I just love the grass and ground images in the set that can be used with other stamp sets I have:)
My color palette was Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede, Real Red, and Whisper White.
Remember, this bundle is available until August 31st. Take another look:
“You light up my life” include a source of light on your project…sun, bulb, etc.
I just used my sunshine thinlit last week but was thinking of the sun so…
here is what I came up with for the challenge…
Here comes the sun….(doo doo doo doo)
I am so happy to have an umbrella bundle in this catalog- bridal showers, baby showers. Of course, rain is a pain in the behind but I just love umbrellas! Look how cute the stamp set and framelits are:
I used the sun from the SU Kinda Eclectic stamp set. I love how big it is and if you mask off half of it, you have a perfect sunset or sunrise!
A quick and easy, clean and simple Christmas card using the SU Dove of Peace wood stamp. I just heat embossed the stamp with gold powder after stamping it in Versamark ink. A few little pearls add a little something to the bold image.
I used the SU Curvy Corner Trio Corner punch to punch the corners and the Christmas Greetings Thinlits to create a pretty CAS sentiment with black Glimmer paper although it has a beautiful sentiment already on the stamp.
The Curvy Corner Trio Punch is three punches in one. It cuts two corner designs and a ribbon slide for tons of tag options. Yippee it is still available as a carry over item in the new mini catalog!
I punched slots at the top of a ton of Christmas tags in a snap using the ribbon slot part of the punch. You simply place any length of paper up against the straight edge in the punch and punch the slot. You could even make the slot longer to accommodate different widths of ribbon by pushing it a bit on either side and punching it again. Here are some SU samples where you can see an example of all three punching options:
The Dove of Peace wood stamp and the Black Glimmer paper is retiring…
Here is the RETIRING LIST in case you want to make some last minute decisions before the retiring items are gone January 4th.
