Want to see another card I made for Convention swaps?  This was one for the Control Freaks private swap.  As usual, this is the prototype…I ended up not using the Color Spritzer in the corners, or coloring in the bands of the birdcage.  I just applied the Rhinestone Jewels on the top band.  (Well, truthfully, my friends Barbara and Mindy helped me finish putting together my swaps on the plane…I think Mindy did the jewels!  lol!  Thanks girls!)


The base is Crumb Cake (formerly Kraft) and I layered on the Poppy Parade cardstock that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder.  I cut the Early Espresso cardstock with the Top Note, then added another layer of Crumb Cake to the top of the Top Note.  I stamped the birdcase from Stampin' Up!'s fun, new Aviary stamp set in Early Espresso.  I used my new Poppy Parade and Espresso Stampin' Write Markers to ink up the bird and stamped him inside the cage.  I then tied some 1/8" Early Espresso Ribbon around and placed at the top of the birdcase handle.  Finally, I stamped Thank You from Teeny Tiny Wishes on Whisper White and punched with the Word Window, then layered it on the Modern Label Punch of Poppy Parade.  I added 3 of the Rhinestone Jewels across the top band of the birdcage for a little BLING!  Love how that looks!


Going to try to get back to normal today.  I cleared out my Inbox of emails…oh my…they had been there when from when I was working on earning Cruise!  Next today is to take a shovel to my craft studio and get that cleaned up!  Plus plan for my Thursday night Stamp Club!


Have a great day!
