I have a cute card to share today.  I made it last week and forgot to photograph it.  It was for the Global Design Project sketch challenge.  And of course, I missed the entry time.  Oh well!  I am still very happy to share it with all of you.

This card is full of products from the Annual Catalog.  Sometimes I have to remind myself to got back to those products.  It is so exciting to play with new items that I forget ones I already have shared.  So I hope this gives you a new look at old products.


Stampin' Up!, Artistry Blooms, Free As A Bird, Jackie Beers


I have highlighted the single bird from Free As A Bird stamp set.  I wanted the bird to be the star of the show, so made the circle a tad bigger than I normally would have.  He, or she, is colored using the Stampin’ Blends.  I used both of the Pool Party blends as well as the light Smoky Slate one.  I have quite a few little small birds that visit my feeder.  They appear to be this coloring, just a bit darker.  I thought the lighter look was better here.

The flowers and leaves are also from the Free As A Bird stamp set.  And they also are colored using Stampin’ Blends.  Those are Granny Apple and Flirty Flamingo.  I finished the flowers with an addition of Pearls for each blossom.  The sentiment is from the set as well and is cut using the Banner Pick A Punch.

I used the layout from the GDP sketch.  Even though my stamped areas are done in lighter colors, I went with bright colors for the card itself.  The base of the card is Coastal Cabana with a layer of Granny Apple Green.  The DSP is the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper.  I chose the card colors from the paper.  I love this bright “brush strokes” looking piece and felt it combined the card colors very well.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please remember there is only one more week of Sale-A-Bration.  I would love to help you with an On Line, or In Person, Party to get you some great Free products.  Also, when you have a qualifying amount for the FREE SAB items, that means you have also earned a Blue Line Star from my Rewards program!!  You can read about that on the menu at the top of the page under Shop.
