Tag and Stacking Birds

Say what?!

Yes I am playing for ABNH Challenge # 26 - Tag and Fusion Card Challenge #13.  Now the post title makes sense right?  :)


Here's my card:

I used up one of the BasicGrey tags from the SweetPea Alyssa Collection that I have been keeping for a special occasion.  Today is that special occasion, I read a very inspiring quote this morning from one of Jenny Martin's Blog post.  I first stamped branches and the 'stacking' birds (Hero Arts - CL177 Hello Birdie) with Walnut Stain (Ranger Distress) ink on the card base, the tag, and pattern paper.  Fussy cut the birds and adhered to tag.  Slightly coloured branches with colouring pencils.  Add ribbon and tied.  Mount on card stock and voila!!  I think I may fused three themes together.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Card without sentiment

Hi all:

I found that lately I make cards for challenges and most of the time there's a sentiment on the card front to identify the category.  So today I made a card without a sentiment so that I could write in the inside according to the occasion whenever/whatever it may be, and I will enter it to the Megenta June Challenge, which is colour challenge.
Here's my card:


Stamp:  Megenta (C0580-M)
Pattern Paper: Jillibean Soup (Spicy Pumpkin)
Card Stock: Bazzil Paper
Ink:  Ranger Distress (Peeled Paint)
Others: sheer green ribbon

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great day!

20th anniversary

Hi everyone:

Today I'd like to share a short post, I made a card for my hubby to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.  I draw inspirations from two challenges I will enter my card, the sketch from Playing in Paradise Sketch Challenge #2 and the style from the Moxie Fab World: Mixy-Matchy Style Challenge.

I chose to use a monochromatic pattern mix for my card, here's it is:

The background is white cs embossed and sponged with Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress).
All other images are punched, stamped and fussy cut using pattern paper, and edged with the same ink.
Bird stamp (Inkadinkado).  Sentiment stamp (Bonnidee).  Stamp for curvy panel (source unknown). Pearls (Hero Arts).  Embossing folder (Cuttlebug).

Thanks for visiting, and have a lovely day!
