Happy Gram CASE



Hi, it's Sunday I finally got a chance to play in my craft room!

 I wanted to play along at the Simon Says Monday challenge where the theme is to create a card inspired by Tammy Tutterow. Tammy's work is amazing. I chose to case this one.(Sadly I couldn't watch the video tutorial, my internet speed is pitiful at the moment.)

I think the only supplies I had that matched Tammy's were the distress inks. I cut the tag from white cardstock and blended with the colours Tammy lists on her tutorial. I didn't have biscotti glimmer mist so I made up a spray with water and blue patina perfect pearls. It does give a subtle sheen when you move it around.
 I used a Stampin Up bird that I punched at my sister's on a visit a while ago. The flowers and leaves are cut from snippets, coloured with distress ink as well, so 
I'm also entering Pixie's Snippets Playground. There's always lots of fun happening there!

At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge the theme is to use a rubber or clear stamp. My sentiment is a clear stamp from Annabelle Stamps All Things Grow set. It's stamped in Versafine sepia.

Inkspirational has an anything goes challenge. They have just changed to fortnightly challenges to allow more time to enter.

CropStop is celebrating World Card Making Day with a blog hop and a challenge link.

Materials used: Distress inks; Blue Patina Perfect Pearls; Stampin Up bird punch: Memory Box Woodland branch die; Carl flower punch; Impression Obsession leafy branch die; Annabelle stamp sentiment; green silk ribbon scrap from a friend; Birds & swirls embossing folder; bling from stash;

Thanks for visiting :)

  24. Lovely card using your beautiful tag. Your pretty blue bird perched on the flowered twig is perfect with the EF you used. I'll see if I can watch that tutorial, but I already know your version will be my fav. It's always interesting to see the ways card makers adapt their own supplies. TFS & hugs
