More Song Birds

Hello friends : ) I hope each and every one of you enjoyed a wonderful weekend!  I sure did!! Not only did I get "stuffed" with turkey but I also got in some papercrafting time this weekend. Woo hoo!! Nothing like the sound of my Big Shot chomping through card stock to put a smile on my face!! : )



I created two new cards using my Song Birds stamp and die set from Papertrey Ink.  The first card I made I CASED from Maile Belles, one of my favorite CAS card artists : ) It is for my sister and her husband who celebrate their anniversary in December.  The colors I used are the colors of their wedding 16 years ago.



For this card I started out by cutting a half circle from a single thickness  4.25 x 5" piece of cs.  I cut and then sponged a section of my A2 card face where the cut out opening would be and lightly stamped some flowers from the same stamp set.  I wanted it to look a bit like snowflakes and yet I wanted to stay within the folksy floral theme of the Song Birds stamp set so I used flowers instead of snowflakes from a different set.  Once my coloring and stamping were completed on the card face I attached the circle die cut piece to the card face using foam tape.   

Next I cut a "snowy hill" layer from another piece of cs and attached it flat to the card face.  The rest is fairly self explanatory I think : ) I die cut the little bird, leaf and banner and did my stamping and finally added a red rhinestone for some Merry Christmas bling : )

That is it for me today : ) I have some unexpected visitors surprising us today so I will not get around to my blog friends but I promise to visit soon!  Until then - I hope you have a wonderful day doing something inky!! : )
