When I'm with you ...

I'm having fun with my new stamp set from SU! "For the Birds".  Such cute images and lots of different stamps to use for lots of different occassions.  Today's card uses the colors from this week's Color Throwdown Challenge (CTD200) - pink passion, chocolate chip, pumpkin pie, tempting turquoise, certainly celery.  I used my blender pen and Stampin' Write markers to color the image and then added some DP banners and twine at the top to balance the card.  This card is made with all SU! products (plus a little Twinery twine).  Hope you like.

"When I'm with you"

Stamps:  For the birds (SU!)
Paper:  Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie striped DP, Tempting Turquoise polka-dot DP, Certainly Celery words DP (SU!)
Ink:  Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery, Mambo Melon, Pumpkin Pie, Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Pink Sorbet Twine (The Twinery), blender pen, square punch, adhesives and dimensionals

Here's a close-up of the main image:

I stamped the image in Basic Black ink and colored using SWM and blender pen.  I cut the strips of DP for the banners and used the square punch to get the "<" at the end of each piece.

I attached the banners to the card front, wrapped twine around and tied a knot to one side and then mounted the card front onto a white card base, popping it up with dimensionals to add depth.

Fun and easy card to make!


Thank you to everyone who took the time to give me feedback about my idea to make changes to my labels (search function) on my blog.  So appreciated!!  I am working at coming up with a solution using your input.

I am going to join everyone else in complimenting your banners "hung" from the twine. Great effect! The birdies are pretty cute, too!
