This plump little bird makes me happy! I was fiddling with the 1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon which I love to use for TEXTURE! I pulled a few threads and wove a ribbon through the opening!! Glue dots secure the ends. I used Crystal Effects on the Bird's eye and beak, but the picture doesn't show it.
The little bird is colored with Blendabilities which can be your FREE selection during Sale-A-Bration Promo through March 31, 2015. You must try them!!
Today, I'm at Stampin' Up! Leadership in Orlando, FL with my North Star Stamper Team!! Love chatting, swapping and sharing with my gals!! Can you hear us giggling??
Shelli Gardner, co-founder and CEO of Stampin' Up! is my guest creator today!! Shelli used the hearts in GROOVY LOVE Stamp Set of 9 images to design this sweet and simple Valentine! It looks to me the two outside images are heat embossed with gold and the center images is Gold Glimmer Paper. Very clever!! Meet Shelli at SoShelli.com.
Isn't this SWEET?!?! My friend and fellow demonstrator, Peggy Taylor, created this lovely home decor! The pink BOW just POPS this design! Pink and Black are sooo striking together. Peggy used the STACKED WITH LOVE Designer Series Stack #137779 and two punches: the Sweetheart Punch #133786 and the Bow Builder Punch #137414. Thanks for sharing, Peggy!
One of my favorite relatives is having a special birthday - and her first in a Nursing Home. This calls for an extra special CHEERY card! I grabbed my NEW "Celebrate Today" BUNDLE!!
I chose warm, festive colors of Blushing Bride, Crisp Cantalope, and Calypso Coral with a dash of Silver Glimmer Paper!!
Inside I used the "Memorable Moments" Stamp Set for a VERY PERSONALIZED birthday!! I hope this card will show how much I'm thinking of her on her birthday. Through her childhood stories, I have gotten to know my Great-Grandmother who was her Grandmother! Precious tales of life on a farm in Illinois!!
I'm hooked on the BUTTERFLIES THINLITS DIES #137360 for $24.95! The Silver Foil Paper creates a stunning butterfly!! Tip: use waxed paper between the Die & Cardstock for a quick release after die cutting.
This background paper is the gorgeous "Something Borrowed" Designer Series Paper #137785 for $10.95.
