It's a Bird!

Today I played with a new (well, new to me) Sizzix Die Cut, Birds.

The bird is cut from kraft paper and then embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder.  Notice that I cut the wing separately and embossed it with a different folder.  A little distressing was added with brown Momento ink.  Add a strip of  designer paper and some ribbon and a bow and this is the result:



It will be a great all occasion card - all I need to do is to add a greeting inside!

Thanks for stopping by.

3D Floral Tag

I'm having a grand time at our DuckAway retreat.  The creativity is flowing interrupted for food and a little sleep here and there.

This 3D Floral Tag is just so very scrumptious!  The 3D effect is achieved with the layers of flower petals plus being mounted with foam tape.  The blue flowers, light green leaves, and cream tag are all coordinating patterned cardstock.  The flowers are the Botanical Floral Collection from Heartfelt Creations matched with Spellbinders Rose Creations Shapeabilities.  The greeting is from Our Daily Bread designs - it is the Full of Grace Collection.

Use the tags on gifts, gift bags, or gift baskets.  Use it in a scrapbook layout or with altered art.  The possibilities are endless!



Thanks for stopping by!

Puppy Dogs and Kitty Cats

In another month we will be celebrating Saint Valentine's Day, the day that commemorates love and affection.

I have made some mini note cards that can be used for Valentine Card Exchanges.  They can be added to gifts.  Or even tuck them into lunches, gym bags, or briefcases to let your family members know how much you care.




Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by.
