I’ve been on a pillow-making frenzy the last week myself, but mine aren’t as cute as these! I really wanted to incorporate a bird into my card, but the only one I could come up with was the toucan from Zoo Babies! So here we go:
I heat-embossed each bird in white ink and white EP on cardstock in the challenge colors, then popped them out with a 1 1/4” circle punch. The new set, Hi There, had a perfect trendy sentiment, so I stamped it in Poppy Parade and popped it up on a white circle and added some thick twine in Coastal Cabana.
They’re on a diecut mat from Lil’Inkers and my Coastal Cabana panel is embossed with a Cuttlebug EF. And those sassy chicks at Just Us Girls have changed things up a bit, so their challenge this week is a word challenge---BIRD!! Woohoo! So I am linking this up there as well!
I made a second card using the challenge colors…I kind of wanted to experiment with stamping on tissue paper to make faux washi tape, but Cassidy was napping in the room where the tissue paper was, and I didn’t dare want to disturb her, so I tried stamping on a napkin! LOL! It turns out to be a wee bit fragile, but sort of fun…I used the As You See It challenge sketch, turning it on its side:
and did some die-cutting:
The banners sort of flutter…I really didn’t want to try to tape them down! This uses Tape It and dies from Chalk Talk and the Circle Card Thinlets on a notecard! And here’s the inside, using the “yay” diecut with Endless Birthday Wishes:
Hope you can play along with us at the ColourQ! I always love to see what the designers as well as the participants come up with!
Have a blessed day!
