LOL… I wasn’t too crazy about the for the birds card from yesterday’s post. Although it was clean and simple, it just didn’t have a wow factor! So, yesterday morning I got up early and made another for the birds card for the Friday afternoon senior stampers class!Using up scraps of designer series papers, this one is so much more fun, don’t you think? These scraps are leftovers from the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper Pack found on page 165 of the big stampin’ up catalog. I love the bright colors in the DSP, and bold yet not too large patterns! The 1/2 inch strips were cut using my table top paper trimmer… which always provides a fabulously clean cut! The birds were inked and stamped using the new midnight muse ink pad then colored using the brush tip of a bashful blue marker, and the fine tip of a pumpkin pie marker.Random Regals Collection buttons were attached with a mini glue dot, a white gel pen was used to paint “faux thread” across the center of the button… no more fumbling with twine or thread!
Things have been a little crazy this month at work and home… so I’m taking a month hiatus from Super Saturday tutorials. LOL, it’s only a hiatus… simply don’t have the time to write everything in a blog post… the ideas are still swirling around in my head, and being created in my stamp room!
Tomorrow I’ll share one more clean and simple card, and of course a card or two each day this week! I’m looking forward to the Stampin’ Addicts Blog Hop next weekend and working on my projects for the blog tour! So far, there are 17 stops on the tour…. with some terrifically talented folks, you won’t want to miss it!
I look forward to your comments and hope you’ll stop back by tomorrow!
