Baby birds and bugs!

There hasn’t been too much going on so I don’t have much to talk about today. I’ve been tired as I couldn’t go to sleep last night so I’ve been dragging all day long. Its a beautiful sunny day.

We have an old grill on our deck that we need to throw away. In our last home, some starlings made a nest inside it two years in a row. This year some other starlings have nested there. They laid 4 eggs and yesterday 3 of them hatched. I don’t think the other egg is going to hatch. The babies are so cute. We love to watch them grow.

So onto a card I made the other day. I don’t usually like bugs but the bugs in this stamp set are adorable. This is a stamp set from Heffy Doodle. Its the first time I’ve used their products and I’ll definately use them again.

Here is the card.

Yellow is my favorite color and I’ve made a few yellow cards lately! Its just so bright and cheery. I stamped the images and colored them with copic alcohol markers. Then I cut them out. For the card base I used Recollections heavy weight cardstock in white and it measures 9″x4″. I used the Whimsy stamps slimline postage die for the front of the card and used 2 yellow polka dot papers for the background.


I placed the images in each of the windows and stamped the sentiment “Sending you big bug hugs”. I used Scotch 3D foam tape to add some dimension to the window.

I think its just so bright and summery, it makes me happy.

Here’s a list of supplies I used for the card:

Best Witches!

This card features the stamp set from MFT called “Best Witches”. I did some ink blending on a piece of Strathmore Smooth cardstock using some distress oxide inks. I then splattered some water on it. Once that was done I left it to dry while I colored my images. I colored them with copic markers… Continue reading Best Witches!

Cute snowman die cut card

I’ve really been into making cards using dies lately. This one is using a snowman die from Cottage Cutz. This was a more simple card to put together. I cut the dies with white cardstock and colored them with copic markers. I layered all of the pieces together, which was pretty easy. I added some… Continue reading Cute snowman die cut card
