Flying Home-Friday Fun

Aren't these clouds so cute.  Wish I could see them here in dreary Illinois.
I think this designer paper is one of the fun parts of this card.  Can you guess what is on the other side?  If you guessed stars on a purple background you would be correct.

Fun for me

1. Coloring the bird house, yes I love to color.

2. The cute bird holding the Happy Birthday message in its beak.

3. The Tranquil Tide colored ribbon.

4. Yes, the clouds.

Next week I will be featuring the We Must Celebrate stamp set.  Don't forget to make a comment on my blog to receive one of the cards of the week in the mail.  And be sure and follow me so you can receive notice when I post a new entry.

Have a great weekend, and see you next week.

Flying Home-Wednesday Wow

I attached the leaf element underneath the sqaure so the leaves that are on the top can hang free.
Do you love to color? This set is a great one for coloring.  The method I chose was the Stampin Blends.  They are great for adding dimension to your coloring.  They come in pairs, one light and one dark and make it easy to add depth even if you are not an expert ( like me).  Why did I consider this a WOW card?  The added element of the leaves.  They are a thinlit that is a part of the Petals and More thinlit set.

You can see some of the shading I accomplished by using my Stampin Blends.

Tomorrow I will share a simple card that would be easy to recreate with any stamp in this set.

Flying Home-Technique Tuesday

Notice all the pieces that are the Peekaboo Peach color, the hearts, ribbon, and card stock.
The technique featured today is layering different items to make a cute focal point on your card.

1. I used one of the layered circles to make the back scalloped circle.

2. I stamped the image on white card stock, colored it in with stampin blends, and then punched it out with a circle that matched the cute little mini embroidery hoop.

3. I glued the hoop onto the card using the mini glue pen.  Love that adhesive for small shapes.

Another view of the layers in the center of the card.
Tomorrow I will share a WOW card made with this cute stamp set.

Flying Home-Miscellaneous Monday

I used the leaf embossing folder on each piece of background card stock to add dimension to the card. 
Isn't this bird so cute in the nest with her babies.  It makes me wish the spring weather was here in Illinois.  Even though it is actually spring it does not feel that way.  So,this card can give us hope.

This week I am featuring this cute stamp set called Flying Home.  I actually purchased it thinking I could eventually give it to my sister since she and her husband are avid bird watchers.

This would be an easy card to reproduce with any favorite stamp set you might own.

Tomorrow I will share I card made with this set that features a technique.
