Hello! Let's start with a frugal tip, shall we? Frugal tip #38: Before you put a coat away, stick some cash in a pocket. What a nice surprise a year later when you reach for it and you find fun money!
Starting around 11am EST, join in the fun at Unity's Friends with Flair Blog Hop. Everyone loves comments but if you see a flashing Unity blinkie that says "You found it!" be sure to leave a comment there and you'll have a chance to win a fun collection of stamps. Good luck!
I'm posting my two latest cards in the challenge marathon (a total of 23 before Oct 16th). To find out more about how you can participate head here.
I'm having fun with my first Ippity stamps. I used "Music of My Heart" on both cards because it's so versatile. Love that! The first card also uses the love birds from Unity's July KOTM and lots of fun embellishments, like that Tim Holtz keyhole and rhinestone brads and hearts. Can you guess that this was my submission for the Ribbon Challenge?
The second card was for a Shaped Card Challenge. I used the sheet music stamp to make a bird cage. I had to "wing it" (no pun intended) to create the top of the cage. I think the Copic marker helped define it. I masked the bird and added a little rattan edge for the table that the cage sits on and some hemp string in holes I punched on the side with a scalloped border punch. I needed something for the finial at the top of the cage so I just turned a rhinestone heart upside down and voila, problem solved!
Thanks for looking. You can find the list of goodies used on these cards in my SCS Gallery.
Have fun hopping!
