The Willow-Wren and the Bear

Standard

The challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp is to get inspiration from a Fairy Tale or Nursery Rhyme. When I was teaching, I loved to read Fairy Tales by the Grimm Brothers to my students and The Willow-Wren and the Bear was one of my favorites.  

So, I had to use my Bird Builder Punch once again! (If you are new to my website and you look around, you will see that I love birds!) The Early Espresso Card Stock represents the bear, the red button-the fox, the vintage trim – the queen, and the bird-the King of the Birds. I even used a fancy flourish to represent the kingdom. I’ve made cards like this before in different colors, but this one is my favorite because there’s an underlying story behind it! Hope you like it as much as I do. this was such a fun challenge!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! Terry

Cards & Things Challenge

Standard

 

This is the card I’m entering in the Cards & Things Challenge this week. The card was made with Very Vanilla Card Stock. I layered a piece of Tangerine Tango CS, which was embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, on the front of the card. I cut out a piece of First Edition Specialty Paper with the Top Note Bigz Die, cut off the right side of it, sponged the edges with Tangerine Tango Ink, and adhered it to the card front.  The bird, the bird’s wing and the branch were all punched out using the Build a Bird Punch. They were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Happy Birthday was stamped on a small piece of the First Edition Specialty Paper and was cut out with scissors. Last, I added a piece of Victoria Crochet Trim and a button to match.  All products, except the button, are Stampin’ Up!

Tissue Box Cover

Standard

I love this paper! It’s only one of the 12 designs from Well Worn, a new Designer Series Paper Pack from Stampin’ Up. I wanted to make a tissue box cover for my son’s bathroom so I needed something masculine. This is what I came up with. I was kind of worried about the crochet trim but he really liked it!

I also used Pacific Point andCajun Craze Card Stock. The bird is from the Nature Walk Stamp Set and was stamped with Chocolate Chip Ink onSahara Sand Cardstock. I added some detail, cut it out, and adhered it the piece of Cajun Craze withStampin’ Dimensionals. The two antique brads are also from Stampin’ Up!
