Bluebirds

Hi!  Welcome to Wednesday!  Today I am playing along with the Global Design Project challenge #GDP031 – Nature Theme card.

SU! Hardwood, World of Dreams, Greetings Thinlets

I went with the World of Dreams  stamp set – just love those images and they are perfect for this challenge.  Spring is slowly making an appearance – well, she made one then left for a bit when Mother Nature decided to drop snow on us again last week.  But, as I type this, I hear the birds chirping and the sun shining.  We have had a nest a few times in a tree by our porch and it is fun to watch the little ones hatch and grow.  I am hoping we get some again this year.   Anyway, I colored my image with my markers – colors are Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Island Indigo and Old Olive.  I used the Lots of Labels thinlets to cut it out.  The background is the Hardwood stamp inked in Crumb Cake and stamped on a Crumb Cake layer.   The sentiment is die cut using the Greetings thinlets.  I actually cut two and glued them together to give a little dimension to it.  A button and linen thread finish it off.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card!

Butterflies

Hi!  Thanks for stopping by today.  Today, I am playing along with the #GDP029 color challenge.  Here are the colors for today’s challenge:

GDP029 Colour

I admit, I struggled a little bit trying to come up with a stamp set to use for this challenge.   I settled on Papillon Potpourri – a favorite of mine and the little butterfly.

SU! Papillon Potpourri, Endless Thanks

I stamped my butterflies in Early Espresso then colored them with Tangelo Twist and Bermuda Bay.  A little hard to see in this picture, but they are popped up on dimensionals.  The background is the debossed side of Elegant Dots (yes, I really do like that look).  Here is a close up:

SU! Papillon Potpourri, Endless Thanks

You can see the debossing much better and get a feel for the popped up butterflies.  The sentiment is from Endless Thanks – another great set as I just love the font.

I do wish to thank everyone who placed  an order, held a workshop, or joined my Stampin’ Up! team during Sale-A-Bration!  I appreciate the support!
