Have a Great Day!

I have a card project to share today. I made this for Spellbinders Paper Arts last fall/winter. You can see it in their Online Gallery, along with tons of other fantastic projects. I really missed being part of the Spellbinders Summer CHA Release, but I did place an order for some of the new die sets! I think they should ship in August sometime! New toys!!! YAY!

Some people are challenged by printed papers, but I love my printed paper! I love mixing patterns and layering. It just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I am challenged by certain shapes - I tend to use mostly circles, ovals, squares, rectangles. When I first saw the Wavy Rectangles template I sort of put it aside because it did not really appeal to me. But one day, I was playing around with some stamped images and thought that it would be fun to make this shape the centerpiece of a project. And this card is the result.

I stamped the bird with some teal ink that matched the paper. I also used the same ink to sponge the sentiment block.

 I hope YOU have a great day!

  4. The colors are beautiful and the use of the birdhouse, my favorite, is a stroke of genius!

  5. pretty how you mixed the pattern papers & colors

  6. Fab card...this would be a great way to use up scraps, wouldn't it? I like that you matted each piece with black. It really pulls the whole card together.
