Birthday Birdie

When I saw the new Stampin' Up! catalog, I immediately knew that this birdcage set had to come live at my house! This is a very clean and simple card...I know, I know, big shocker - but hey, it's what I do! :)

The "patterned paper" was stamped by me using the Distressed Stripes set - love this set for doing this! It is perfect when you need a specific color combination DSP.

Stamps: Aviary (Stampin' Up!); Distressed Stripes, Everyday Button Bits (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Crushed Curry, Marina Mist (SU); Onyx black (Versafine)
Paper: Stamper's Select white (PTI); Crushed Curry, Marina Mist (SU)
Accessories: Crushed Curry polka dot ribbon, linen thread (SU); Chloe's Closet buttons (Making Memories), glue dots

Baby Shower Welcome Sign

This is the Welcome sign that I had taped to the front door at Meg's Baby Shower. In all the excitement (meaning, rushing around like mad right before guests arrived), I neglected to take a picture of the sign before I sent it home with Meg as a souvenir at the end of the shower.

Meg was kind enough to bring the sign when she came by yesterday, so I got to take a few pictures of it for my blog.

Gluing all the die cut letters straight was tedious, but well worth the effect, don't you think?!

Paper: So Saffron textured, Spring Fling and Junior Varsity DSPs (Stampin' Up!); Stamper’s Select white (Papertrey Ink)
Accessories: Timeless Type alphabet sizzlets (SU); Star Sizzix die (SU); vintage buttons (PTI); rustic twine (PTI); white galaxy marker (American Crafts); scallop edge punch (SU); glue dots; mono multi adhesive
