Another Best Birds


Today's card is my final Best Birds card. Again, very simple with just a little background stamping this time. All the other images were cut out with the coordinating Birds & Blooms dies.

Everything was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.


This has been a really great set to use, not only for the beautiful images but for the wide ranging sentiments in a lovely font.

Best Birds - Anniversary


Hi There :o)

I have a couple of cards to share with you this week created using the wonderful Best Birds stamp set together with the coordinating Birds & Blooms dies. These are retiring this month, so this is probably my last time playing with them :o(

The paper used for the background comes from the Wood Textures 6" stack - another soon to be retired product!


I love how this card came out, so simple but the images are beautiful and they are all you need :o)

The sentiment was stamped directly onto the background paper - very easy to do as the stamp set is Photopolymer.

Pretty Kitty - Card Box - Video Tutorial


In today's Video, I show you how I created this Card Box. It comfortably holds four cards and envelopes.

The Pretty Kitty stamp set will be retiring at the end of this month. This is one I will miss a lot. I love the cute images :o)

If you are interested in seeing the Cards in more detail, you will find them HERE.



This is a great little box for holding cards. It's easy to adjust the size too if you want it to hold more of them :o)


I stamped the images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured most of them using the Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers. The Bows and the darker flowers were coloured using a Blender Pen and the Berry Burst ink pad.

The paper is from the Gingham Gala 6" stack.


The Box closure is in the back. I just wrapped a length of Baker's Twine around two Brads. I used the Silver and White Twine (145569) but pulled out the Silver Tread.

The sides of the Flap were shaped using the Gift Bag Punch Board. Alternatively, you could round the corners or cut the sides at a slant to give it some shape.

Here is the Video ...


Measurements

Berry Burst                                                    11½"  x  7½"

Score with the LONG side across the top at:  
4½",  5½",  10"  and  11"

Score with the SHORT side across the top at:
1"  

Berry Burst (Lid)                                          4½"  x  2"

Score with the SHORT side across the top at: 
1"  and  2"

NOTE: If you are in the USA the Box as is will be a little too tall for your envelopes. If you reduce the size of the main Berry Burst card to 11½"  x  7" it should be perfect :o)
