Toile Birds


More birds ... still don't know why I like them so much.  Not a bird watcher or anything LOL.

The cardinal card is a CASE from Mary Fish, Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  I added the leaf, but otherwise just like hers.  Not everyone like the cardinal, so I saw this bluebird on Pinterest and incorporated pretty much into the same layout as the cardinal.  LOVE the way this turned out.  If you'll notice, the heads are different, for I colored in the black around the cardinal face with white.  I also redid the wing a bit.  I used the coordinating dies for the set, but on the bluebird and branch, I also trimmed off all the white,  and made a few modifications on the branch.

The birds were colored with Stampin' Blends ... cardinal was light and dark real red, and the bluebird was light and dark night of navy.

Fall Sunflowers

The daisy punch is so versatile.  It's not just for daisies.  It can also be used to make sunflowers by adding a larger espresso textured center made using the hammered metal 3D embossing folder then punched with a 1" circle punch.  The birch background stamp is a perfect backdrop for this card.

Faux Denim Technique


One of the techniques for club was faux denim.  Super easy!  (I know I say that every month LOL).  But this really is.

Simply fill an uninked stampin spot with craft white ink.  (You could use just the large craft white ink pad, but the effect is not quite the same because the ink spot is fabric not foam like the large pad.)  Drag the ink spot in one direction from top to bottom on a piece of night of navy cardstock.  If you hesitate on the way down you will get a little line, but it adds to the character.  See, super easy!  Give it a try.

Fancy Fold - Small Center Tent



Isn't the walrus cute?  I don't typically do cutesy cards, but I couldn't resist this guy.  This is a card we did in technique class.  Super simple (I know, I say that all the time LOL).  But, really it is.

Below is one of the cards that technique club recipients receive for class with the instructions. 
I love the See A Silhouette designer series paper.  It reminds me of cold water, which worked perfectly for this cards.  It's also one of the designer series papers that are on sale for the month of September (buy 3 get 1 free).
