Love Birds

This is my last card I’m posting for the day, continuing on with the PTI Anniversary creations requirement to be inspired by something on Pinterest; I decided to look at the cards that I have pinned to my own inspiration board. It was about time I tried to learn from those ideas so in essence this is sort of a CASE card.

The above card is by Angeline of The Creation of Creativity, so credits to her for this gorgeous card I’ve used as inspiration!

Used the Little Bitty Birds stamps and dies to make the birds on some pinkish red cardstock. If you’re wondering why both birdies are the same colour, it’s because I made this card specifically for a female friend and her female significant other.

I was just thinking some time ago, that there was a lack of handmade cards relating to the GLBT community, and was rather upset when there were silhouettes or cameos of men and women and you could only stamp it so that a man’s silhouette always faces the direction of the woman’s silhouette. So today, I’m glad I was able to play around with these dies to make a girl birdie face another girl birdie 🙂

Anyways, these are already in the post and on the way to them. I really hope they like it!

Love, Love, Love is All You Need

Hey again guys! So I had a pretty rough night of sleep and got up at 5am. My sleep is so erratic these days and I really haven’t been feeling too well as a result. But I figured since I couldn’t sleep, I was going to make a card. Yeah… I’ve gone a bit nutty! Once again, please excuse the indoor lighting… As I said, it’s 5am and there is no natural light! Bah!!!

I (HEART) U on little banners with dimensional foam! 🙂 For the challenges, I had to keep to a purple theme and the card is based on this sketch:

The final challenge is for the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #47 Ala Carte– and I picked the heat embossing technique to use in this card!

Without further ado…

I made the felt bird! 🙂 Put some Antique Linen Distress Stickles all over the birdcage chipboard to give it some rustic-looking shimmer.

It is a new year… and sometimes, all we need is a fresh start, right? I heat-embossed this sentiment with some white powder.
