I've had this set (Home To Roost) for well over a year and it was time to break it out! I water colored the rooster and then just layered on the Cherry Cobbler cs, Cherry Cobbler DSP, and Crumb Cake cs that was dry embossed with a SU! honeycomb folder. I used Crushed Curry for the scalloped circles behind the rooster and sentiment. A little bit of jute twine and this sweet card is ready to go!
I'm quite proud of the fact that I just got this gorgeous stamp set (Inspiring Iris) just a couple of weeks ago and can say now that I've already used it! This is one of those 2 step stamps where you stamp the outline first, and then use the 2nd stamp to fill in the color. VERY easy to line up and looks awesome...like you know what you're doing!! I used an Old Olive card base and Old Olive DSP behind the flower image and also a white piece that I used the Tufted EF on. Finished off with a scrap piece of light green seam binding ribbon, a few enamel dots, and some vellum die cut leaves (PTI's Songbirds).
My last card is the FANCY FOLD card we made called a "Double Z Fold. The base "Z" of the card uses a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of cs scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2" on the long side. The smaller "Z" is a piece of cs cut at 3 1/8" x 8 1/2" and scored at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4". The DSP on the base of the card is one piece cut at 4 x 5 1/4 and another smaller piece cut at 2 1/2 x 4. I kinda winged it for the pieces on the small Z fold part.
Here's what it looks like when you open it so you can see the sentiment at the top of the smaller Z fold. I used SU!'s Honey Bee stamp and die set (and DSP) and Crushed Curry ink and cs to make this card.
Here's a side profile picture so you can get a better idea of what the card actually looks like! I used one of those little spring things (sorry, don't know the actual name!) on the back of the largest bee that's on the hive and it makes the bee's wings flutter just like he's buzzing around the hive. This was definitely a FUN card to make and now that I've got it figured out how it goes together I'll probably be making more!!
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
