If you have been around before, you might remember me doing a couple of cards for Card Cupids. They do challenges each month, and collect cards to give to kids along with a lot of other things in times when they can use a real pick-me-up. I love making cards for kids, so it gives me a really good excuse to play and I have a great place to send my cards. Now that the move is over, I can finally play along again!
The current challenge is to use ribbon, twine, or washi tape. I went with twine on this one...
Jelly Beans stamp set - My Cute Stamps
Mix n' Match Kids stamp set - SP & Company
Background Stamp - TAC (retired)
Markers - Stampin' Up
Nestabilities Labels 22 - Spellbinders
Divine Twine - SP & Company
When I was thinking about a background for these little birds, I immediately thought of the wood grain stamps that are so popular right now...which I don't actually have. Started looking through what I do have and came across this old background from TAC. While it is not actually supposed to be wood grain, the look is very similar and it saves me from buying one. Lesson learned....don't forget to check your stash and see what you have before buying new!
