“Tweet” Animal Talk


Today I thought I'd combine a couple of older products with newer ones.  I find when you do this, you get such a different look!  I noticed I hadn't used my Natural Composition Designer Paper in a while, and when I saw this terrific woodgrain piece, I knew I had to pair it with something springy.  Here in Centeral New York, it's 5 degrees as I type this and we just got quite a bit more snow overnight, so I'm really trying to think Spring!

  • Color is such an interesting thing!  In fact, it's really what brought me to stamping.  I just love the interplay of colors and how some "work" and some don't.  I started this card with Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight and it just wasn't right.  Switched it up to Soft Sky and Summer Starfruit and voila – the perfect feel!
  • Corner rounding has always been one of my favorite accents, and now with the help of the Envelope Punch Board, I have perfectly rounded corners every time.  At just $19.95, this is going to be your "go to" tool – for something as basic as corner rounding and for making all sorts of coordinating envelopes for your beautiful cards.
  • The main image stamp is from Animal Talk stamp set, and I've used markers to ink up the image and stamp on a Whisper White cardstock circle cut with the Circle Framelits.  This wonderful collection of circles is also a real must in your collection.  With 10 different layering pieces, you're sure to have just the right size.  Be sure to grab Dimensionals for your circle to give it a little lift.
  • The Natural Chevron Ribbon is the perfect embellishment for this card – nice and natural to go with our bird theme.
  • Don't know what I'm going to do without Summer Starfruit come June when it retires!  It's been the missing color in our palette for me!  I do hope it returns one day, but for now, I'm using it as much as I can!  Here I've used the new Petite Petals Punch along with a Dahlia to create the floral accent.  Glue Dots are the best way to adhere the Dahlias to cardstock.
  • In Color Dahlias are on the Weekly Deals – but hurry; they're only on sale today, along with the Summer Starfruit Ribbon!
