Holiday Songbird

  • Stamps – Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection: Winter Watercolor and Festive Overlay
  • Patterned paper – Pebbles – Cozy & Bright Collection – Winter Green
  • Ranger Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough
  • Silver Mirror Cardstock – Paper Accents
  • Cardstock – Neenah
  • Ribbon

For this card, I started out with a Distress Ink background and then stamped the bird and sentiment on top. The detail of the chickadee stamp is really lovely and I didn’t want to detract from it with a lot of fussy stuff. I did add some glitz by layering the image with some patterned paper and then a layer of silver mirror cardstock. I added the silver ribbon for some visual interest and to repeat the silver again to tie it altogether while still keeping it clean and simple. I was inspired by the current sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch. Thanks for visiting.

Happy New Year – With Lots of Color

  • Patterned papers – Pink & Main “My Heart” 6 X 6″ pad
  • Stamp – Hero Arts – CM100 “Christmas Messages”
  • Dies – My Favorite Things Die-namics Blueprints 13
  • Cardstock – Paper Accents

I really enjoyed making this card because I got to combine all of the colorful strips of paper together. All of that pattern plays nicely together when it is separated by the black barriers! This is a great sketch. I added a few stars die-cut from gold metallic cardstock to make the sentiment a bit more festive.

Thanks for visiting and Happy New Year!
