Hummingbird Silhouette – Stampin’ UP! Card

Hummingbird silhouette

Hello there,

Some of my favorite cards are creations that have silhouette images.  The images can be so striking against a bright sky and also these projects can be so quick to make, BONUS!

Before I headed to my craft room, I was having my morning tea out on the deck watching the hummingbirds come to the feeders when one of the little birds decided to fly up to my face and just look at me.  I had the feeling it was saying thank you for the food but at the same time I was wondering if I was going to lose an eye it was so close to my face, lol.  When it flew away I knew what the main image of my card scene would be today. Do you also get inspired by things you see or what is happening around you?  It’s so nice to put it down on a card or scrapbook page and makes your projects that much more meaningful.

FYI, the Stampin’ UP! Picture Perfect stamp set, item 140520 that has this great hummingbird in it will be retiring as of May 3oth, hurry get it now.

Faux Patina Best Bird

DSC_0034

Hello there,

I upped the Wow factor on today’s card by adding a handmade glitzy faux patina accent panel.  The faux patina technique is one that you will want to do again and again, it’s stunning in person, plus you can make the faux patina piece any colors so you want and they will perfectly match  your project.  I love the way that patina panel stands up to the reflection scene and doesn’t wither away.

Flamingo Tile – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0026

Hello there,

I love the look of hand painted tiles and decided to incorporate that look into today’s project with a tile technique.  The tile technique adds so much interest to the background and really makes that flamingo pop while keeping the background soft and serene.

I hope this project inspires you go get inky today.  :)
