Pin It


So EXCITED to shared today's FUN New Challenge with you over on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog!! We are going GREEN this Month!!

I stamped the Sweet Owl from the Newton's Nook Designs Sweetheart Tails Stamp Set and paper pieced it together!!  I used the New Tweet Talk Stamp Set to stamp the Branch and Birdhouse!! My Sentiment is from the Love' a La Carte Stamp Set!!

 I thought it would be FUN to use my New American Craft Amy Tangerine Die!! I'm in LOVE with this Photo Frame, but let me worn you if you are going to use thin paper or Vellum like I did you'll want to be VERY careful when removing it from the die!! The stitching cuts are AWESOME, but they also make it really hard to remove the paper from the die!! I ended up tearing almost 5 frames before I got this one to come off unharmed!! I used the New Studio Calico Colored Vellum and I LOVE this shade of green!! I wanted my scene to be mostly Blaack and white with the different touches of green!! I added some Glitter Paper behind the heart cut out and then stamped my sentiment and embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder!! I added some Ink Splatters to the card base just for some added color and my card was finished!!
