Check out those knockers!

This is my CRAZY BIRD card that kept me up until 8am the other day. I just had to keep working on it to see if would work out to look like this.

There are alot of details and I used my favourite Bird Basics stamp set. I also used our Key To My Heart stamp set; Dream Wishes and Priceless Love Word Puzzle. Colours are Juniper; Sorbet; Tulip and Colonial White. I also used my stickles over the embossing for added dimension and effect.

Humble Artist's Swap

I'm finally posting my Humble Artists Swap card for our Jan 10th round. I'm hosting this swap for 2009 and am still humbled to have been invited to join by founding hostess, Nanci Hatcher, in 2008.

Our guidelines were to use paper from a new paper pack from our just launched Spring catalogue. There had to be at least 4 layers of paper at any given spot on the card. We also had to use some sort of fibre, either ribbon; hemp or embroidery floss. Finally, we had to have two more embellisments, also.

I used our embroidery floss; Blush ric rac ribbon and Tulip brads with some stickles on them. I also used my cuttlebug embossing folder for added dimension. I used That's Amore paper and several stamp sets.

I used Blooming Flourishes on the Blush background; the words are from Feb Word Puzzle; my favourite heart is from Love Language; and finally, the cutey patootey bunny is from our A Birthday Wish set.

The bunny is stamped on textured Colonial White cardstock and then coloured in with chalks. I used our Tulip marker to draw the heart on his head.
