Hi everyone! Wednesday has rolled around and it's time for another challenge from The Sisterhood of Crafters. This week is Darlene and she has challenge us to design a project featuring birds. Funny thing is, I don't have a stamp set that has a bird in it. Now how sad is that, I ask you? So, I dug out one of my favorite patterned papers from Graphic 45 and let it do the bird watching for me. I love the bird images in this paper. And, yes, if you are wondering, I am on the lookout for some bird stamp sets.
Cardstock: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla (both Stampin' Up!); Patterned Paper: Botanical Tea 8x8 Paper Pad (Graphic 45); Other: 3/8" Lost Lagoon Silky Taffeta Ribbon (Stampin' Up!), Friend Die (Taylored Expressions), Sequins

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
Beautiful card, so soft and dreamy and I too love, love this paper, a creative idea to use for the challenge...for some reason I have lots of bird stamps, I am thinking I have a stamp hoarder buried inside of me..lol!!ReplyDelete
So so pretty Marsha! I can NOT believe you don't have any bird stamps ... amazing! LOL Maybe I should send you a few! Obviously I was on a roll when I was bird stamp buying! LOL Beautiful card and great alternative ... have a great day!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Darlene! I can't either. I'm on the look out for some and hope to find just the right one.Delete
Love the designer paper solution to your bird stamp dilemma, Marsha. That was so creative! I can't resist a cute bird so I know you will be able to find a bird for your stamp collection soon. Great card!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Debbie! I'm looking for the perfect one. Well, at least one. lolDelete
Oh wow such gorgeous design paper and you paired them so well, and along with the addition of the ribbon and diecut sentiment you've created such a beautiful card. I hope you managed to procure a few bird stamps, they're fun to colour! Have a great week! Hugs, GwendolynReplyDelete
Thanks, Gwendolyn! I'm still looking but I'm sure it won't be long before I have one.Delete
Love the vintage look of the pretty blue paper with the bird in the nest, it reminds me of antique wallpaper. Gorgeous!ReplyDelete
