Now, this month’s theme is Wings! And, although there’s a lot of options here, I decided to take advantage of many of the beautiful bird stamps I have in my collection. And, I’ve veered completely away from traditional cards. Hope you enjoy my spin on this fun theme!
First off, I created this colorful tag. I was inspired by my new Tim Holtz Speckled Egg collection and this pretty foiled tissue paper I received it in from Joggles! Besides other products I used the oxide spray, the oxide ink and the Embossing Glaze very shiny... I’m in love)! I used @ couple of stencils and the birds, sentiment and background stamps from Just Want To Be Me 3/19 SMAK kit.
My next endeavor, ay yi yi, this one took several days to create! This time I was inspired by an artist paper included in the most recent Somerset Studio Summer 2020 magazine. I cut that down into pieces (it was already marked up with dividing lines). I also used my new Tim Holtz inks as well as other inks, cut up ephemera from many different collections, ribbons, brads, lace, pearls, pin, cloth, Washi tape and embossing powders. This time I was inspired by my crafty friends to create an accordion vintage card.
A very, very close friend let me vent all my pent up anxieties on her one day recently. All sorts of old icky stuff came out (kind of like, cat fur balls) and it was just what I needed to relieve pressure. So I created this special card with her in mind. We’ve been friends since grade school... so she’s my other sister from another mister!
Anyway, sorry to say, I didn’t take an inventory of all the SMAK, KOM and other kits used to create this one off card, but if you have an interest in any stamp, just let me know what page (1 being front) and I’ll get back to you! The dimensions are 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I used a 5 1/2 x 12 inch strip of paper to start and scored it at 4 1/4 twice. I did the same with a second strip. I overlaid the last few inches of the first strip on the second and cut off the trailing end. In essence, I ended up with 6 sides I decorated and 2 plain (8 total). I used a double sided paper as the base (cool back speaks to friendship). I used Authentique papers as first layer, except for front and back... which I created myself. I then used my cut up paper in a variety of ways. If nothing else, there’s a lot to look at in this card... hope she likes it!
Now, on to the rest of this great hop:
