I finally got to stamp after my very busy week. This is one of my new sets and I thought it looked cute as a fall tree with a blue bird in it. I used branch out stamped in choc chip for the tree then made yellow red and pumping colored leaves. the leaves are all stamped off once then stamped on the tree so you can see the different colors. The bird was stamped in pacific point. I used the pretty soft saffron from the SAB bundle to divide the card and add a bow. Fabulous Friends from oval all stamp set was used on the faux metal scalloped oval.
I stamped Bella Toile in amethyst for the background then used a pretty cut out from the Cricut for my center. I added a flower to the center which was colored with pretty in pink marker then amethyst for the lines. I added branches from Martha Stewart branch punch in celery. The black square was put behind the amethyst paper then pretty in pink behind that. Two sides of the pink paper are wider than the other. Then I added celery ribbon to the two narrow sides of pink to even the look out. Something new for me.....using ribbon in a different way not a main part of the card or an obvious addition to the card. Might be a new how to use it challenge huh? I added Best Wishes in black from the oval all set.
I stamped Bella Toile in amethyst for the background then used Tea Party designer paper and cut a pretty leaf design with the Cricut and mounted it on amethyst paper with a 1/16" border of black paper. Then I versamarked it and added dazzling diamonds. The oval scallop punch with tea time paper and Best Wishes from Oval All. I added the eyelet border punch in celery to the bottom along with black gingham ribbon.
This was a beautiful card from my upline. I thought simple to make, elegant to look at. What do you think?
I also had some time to make some top note boxes. That's coming tomorrow to share with you.
