Okay, so I have to say that I really don’t know how I came up with this card. I don’t think I’ve ever used a bird on a card before. I’m just not that into birds. Well, except for owls of course!! Anyway, I used masking after I stamped my flowers, then I blended them with a blender pen.
I really like this Elements of Style stamp for scrapbooking. I didn’t think I had used it on a card before, so that’s why I decided to use it for today. But, I just now searched my blog and found one HERE! Ha! Anyway, picking a stamp set is usually the first step in my card-making process. And then I think about it day and night, lol!
Some good news on the shopping front… Dick Blick is having 15% off orders of $79 or more PLUS free shipping if you order $99 or more. If you’re thinking about Copic Markers, you can’t beat $4.45 per marker (after the 15% off). Dick Blick also has my favorite Inktense Pencils for significantly cheaper than other online crafting store (used on THIS card, THIS card, and THIS card). They also sell some Faber Castell products. The sale runs through Thursday, 4/18. Use CDFK at checkout!
Someone pointed out to me that Ellen is out of the Everything Flowers stamp I used on Monday. You can also find it at scrapbook.com.
I’ve spent quite a bit of time working on my new site design the last couple of weeks, so I think I’ll have it ready to go this weekend! I’m excited about it and hope you will like it. I started using my new logo in my photos, so that’s a little sneak peek. It’s actually a very clean and simple look. 🙂
Enjoy the video!
