Irresistible Little Bird

Well today I combined the cute Bird set with the awesome Irresistibly Floral DSP and came up with this creation:

Of course you've guessed it... I used the sponge brayer over the DSP to create the "ombre" look. It's soooo easy. You really need to try it if you haven't yet!

I am so glad that I used watercolor paper for the bird, because it makes it look so dimensional since it's a little thicker..

With the theme this month... I just had to reach for my "Sheltering Tree" stamp set... 'cause Fall is in the air! Even here in Georgia ;-) I love the fall colors and had a great time playing with my sponge brayer to create the background:

Taking a break from Christmas cards

During Stamp-a-Stack Saturday, I mentioned that the I would need to take a break from making Christmas Cards for a few days.... And I went into the spring-like color selection...

I know...  today's card is a little unusual for me ... in color choice... Melon Mambo is not a color I reach for often. I was going to CASE a card that my upline Dena did a couple of days ago that used Washi Tape in the background... but I wanted to use a different Washi Tape to make the card a tiny bit different.

BTW - The mini pom pom trim is still pretty dimensional... so I had to stack 2 dimensionals to make that layer pop up enough...

October Stamp-a-Stack Card 3 (Merriest Wishes)

Today I am showing you the last card of our Stamp-a-Stack from this month. I am not sure that you can see it in the picture, but the background behind the ornament is silver foil paper and soooo pretty!

We saved some Night of Navy Cardstock by cutting the scalloped square out of the layer that goes on the card  ;-)

Today I am sharing the first one with you:

This is a very easy card, but looks so detailed.... Love this SANTA!
