This is another card I made another girlfriend of mine. I stamped the bird with flowers (inkadinkadoo-birds galore) with a bright pink and added clear embossing powder, cut it out added the dark blue with a gelly roll sparkle pen, crimped my heart I hand cut, inked the edges, attached the heart and bird. Cut the bottom of my card off, added the scalloped edge, added my ribbon (thanks LA, you're the best) and added the flower with the little tag with the word happy. the background pp is actually wrapping paper that I just adore and I wish I had tons of it in wrapping paper and scrappy paper!

This is a card I made my friend for her birthday. I scrap lifted these words from a magazine called Stamper's Sampler. They pick a template and then they have readers use them and submit what they made. This month's template was a crow. Some one had a tag with their crow and this saying on it and I thought it was a hoot!! So, I downloaded the template and made it to fit a 5x7 card and this is my crow card. You can find the templates at stampington.com on the left side you will find templates! The tag was on page 74 in the magazine. I wish I could take credit for the words because they make me laugh every time I look at this card with the crow, but I can take credit for my crow though and isn't her makeover just lovely! LOL... I cut the first crow out of black cs, did her tail with a white charcoal pencil. Traced a head out of the green old worlds pp and inked the edges drew her eye and cut a beak out of the red cs that I did her wing in and inked the edges of the beak added the line and then added diamond glaze to give it a high gloss look like lip gloss might; added a rosie cheek and a hint of red to her eyelid. I than embossed her wing that I cut out with the cuttlebug embossing file and added white ink to make it pop, then added the the row of paper studio gemstones - red; made her crown on my own, embellished it and then I cut down the crow's legs some because I wanted them slimmer and then drew her feet and added a dot of red fingernail polish to each toe. Added the words I printed off of my computer. This was a lot of fun, I encourage you to download a crow and do something with it yourself. I am going to do something for halloween too.. lol when I find the time...
