It's Like Snail Mail Only Slower

Hello.  Welcome.  Life is busy and the crafting seems to have taken a bit of a back seat.  Then today, rain stopped play, or work in my case, so I am trying to catch up a little.  Since Chris, hi Chris, has received my card for this months CCC I thought I'd share it with you.

I used a raspberry base, added a layer I coloured with brusho's and then a layer of MME patterned paper I had die cut with YNS Stitching Holes die.  I decided to go with the sketch and the colours but it ended up a bit of a rainbow so I'll just claim the sketch LOL.  I cut some MME patterned paper with a sizzix die and edged them with Salty Ocean distress ink.  The Memory Box music die cut is a gift from Darnell.  Hi Darnell, thanks for the lovely die cuts.  I stamped Stamplorations large Oriole on neon card, embossed and fussy cut.  Then I arranged him so he was perching on the paper strips.  The hello is cut using sizzix alphabet dies and a few sequins to finish.

  1. Great card, love the bird!

    Thanks for joining us at Stamping Sensations this month


  2. Lovely! You got the bird to 'hold' the music...looks fabulous:):)

  3. What an awesome card, Gail! That bird just makes me happy! Your sequins, die cuts, and patterned papers just finish this one off beautifully! Great job :)

  4. Shame we don't get colourful birds like that around here, they would certainly cheer up a dull day! TFS at STAMPlorations. :)
