Bird Garden Birthday
I used my Hero Arts envelope template to create the panel on this card. Sheri Carroll showed a video on the Hero Arts blog last week showing how she used this template to create a border for the card she was making. I was inspired to use my envelope template to make the panel on my card. The Stamps used are Hero Arts: Birthday Sayings CL340, Bird Garden H5396, and Scattered Dots CG267.
Birthday Birds and Balloons
Bird CollageI distressed the paper with antique linen and stamped the music background over the distressed paper using the antique linen distress ink. The leaf, flourish, flower and sentiment were stamped in frayed burlap. The Birds were embossed with black distress ink and colored with tumbled glass. The stamps used are Hero Arts: Music background CG222, Water Color Petals CL431, Earth Flowers CL428,Thoughtful Messages CL184, and Two Birds (3 images) CG152.
Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments. Take care and God bless.
