The birdcage and peacock are dies from Marianne Creatables. Cool aren’t they? This bird and the cage represent freedom in this picture…the freedom to create. Now it’s your turn…pull out some of your crafting goodies and feel the freedom! Have a beautiful day!
This rose was created using the Heartfelt Creations Grandiflora Rose 2 precut set. I stamped the three different size images several times on some retired black and white Stampin’ Up! designer paper. Then, I cut into each image and curled up the petals. Next, I used Poppy Red Twinkling H20’s to paint each image. The dampness of painting these images also helped to curl up the petals. For the next step, I just started layering the petals and attaching each layer with dimensionals.
The leaves were formed simply by stamping and cutting each one out. I like the look of red against black and white, so I chose a simple dotted print as the backdrop for my rose. A little lace across the corner and done.
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog! See you soon!
Another card to share with you today. I love these Fred B. Mullett stamps! Simply stamped each of the leaves on Stampin’ Up! Ivory Naturals cardstock and added the Impression Obsession sentiment. It’s one of my favorites too!
Ink colors from Stampin’ Up! are Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz and Cajun Craze.
Take some time for yourself today…e-mail someone you haven’t in a while, read a book, or perhaps enjoy a walk. Be good to yourself!
Oh, boy! I’m going to be singing this song all day now LOL!!! It’s the first thing that popped into my head when naming this so I went with it.
The cardbase is Stampin’ Up! in River Rock. One of my favorite neutrals to work with. And, I’ve used a classic stamp set from SU – Lovely As A Tree. The moon has been made with the reverse masking technique. I Simply punched out a circle in a piece of scrap cardstock. Then sponged it first with Encore Silver and then a little bit of Basic Black.
Next, the trees image was stamped over top of the moon. I dry embossed a piece of Basic Black cardstock with the Square Lattice folder, then used my Crop-A-Dile to punch three holes for the brads. The sentiment has been stamped in Basic Black on a rectangle of River Rock and then I rounded the edges with a 3/4″ x 15/16″ oval punch.
Who’ll catch you singing Bad Moon Rising today? LOL!
The image is from Lockhart Stamp Co. and has been stamped in Certainly Celery and then very loosely watercolored with Stampin’ Up! Soft Sky and Rose Red. All panels and the cardbase are in Stampin’ Up Rose Red. The designer paper is from Prima and it’s called Sparkling Spring.
For embellishment, a tailored bow with a couple of punched flowers and a pearl on top. The punches are from Stampin’ Up! – Boho Blossoms and Itty Bitty Shapes. Three more pearls, a couple of strips of ribbon, and a banner sentiment complete the card.
And remember…Enjoy Life’s Moments!!!
