My first card features the wonderful Tree set #559. I used the tree image for a branch...coloring the stamp with Always Artichoke and Chocolate Chip markers and stamped it onto the white cardstock. The sentiment is from the same set. The Rubbernecker bird house #49-12 was paper pieced with Memory Box Brioche dp and the Rubbernecker birds #49-020304 were colored with copics and adhered with foam dots. Sewing was done around all the edges and the seam binding and button with twine finished it off.


Recipe: Stamps: Rubbernecker Tree set #559, RN Birds, RN Birdhouse, Paper: White, Chocolate Chip, Memory Box Brioche dp, Ink: Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Accessories: Seam Binding, Button, Twine, Sewing Machine My second card features the chandelier from the Clowns and Crowns set #528 that was released a couple of weeks ago and the sentiment from the Tree set #559. The sentiment was stamped above the chandelier and a line was drawn between the two so it looked like they were connected. Pearls, seam binding and a brad are the finishing touches.

Recipe: Stamps: Rubberneker Clowns and Crowns set and Tree set, Paper: Vanila, Prism Papaya Puree Light, Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Accessories: Corner Rounder Punch, Spellbinders Scallop die, Seam binding, Brad, Nestabilities, Dotted Swiss Embossing Folder

Oh, so tweet :D, I love birdie cards, and the red binding is a fabulous accent. The chandelier card is so elegant.

Barbara Taylor said...

I loved the sentiment on the 1st card along w/the bird and bird house. I have had a lot of Prayers going up recently and having the faith that they would be answered and they have been. Thanking God.

Carole of Brum said...

Good Morning, Joan, nice to see another couple of your fab cards! First thing that struck me about the first card was the lovely colour combo, I just love that blue with a strong red, and your eye is immediately drawn to that fabulous bow, the colour of which brings in the red of the birdcage roof so nicely. Magic to gaze at! Love the soft gentle shades in the second card too, very restful. Have a great day. CoB

Kathy and Lucky said...

Beautiful cards, love the softness of the second one with the neutral colors and the first one, love the ribbon/twine/button combo and the birdcage with the paper piecing. Beautiful!

Celeste said...

Awww, love the bird house and bird. What a great sentiment too. Your second card is so elegant. It's great how you connect the word Love with the chandelier. Love the ribbon too.
