I made some cards!

Remember all that blog candy I received from Crissy? Well, I sat down and decided to create a couple of cards using my new papers and stamps.



Here is the first one. I used basic white cardstock, a 4 1/4" square, then placed this gorgeous Stampin Up! paper as the main layer. I then found a matching piece of cardstock to act as the base for my cute little Rhonna Farrer bird stamp. I stamped another bird on the DP and cut out to use as a paper piece. To create something a little more unique I cut out the wing to show the white background. The sentiment Birthday Wishes from the For a Friend stamp set is stamped on the inside. To finish it off, I added 2 white buttons on the top left corner.



Here is the second. This is a sketch from Splitcoast but for some reason the site is slow and can't get the URL for the specific sketch. I have been having lots of problems with SCS lately...not sure why? Anyone else having problems? Anyway, I used more of the gorgeous Stampin Up! paper and stamped the Thinking of You image from the same stamp set.

I just love this new set. Hopefully when I get a job I can actually invest more mula into Stampin Up! products. I have an interview Friday...on my birthday! We shall see how it goes.
