From a Branch to a Tree




I'm a busy bee today. This is my second card. I guess my mojo in in overdrive. This will probably be it for a few days, though.

My card is for Whoo Hoo Wednesday at Inspired by Stamping-WHW #99. This is the challenge:
Create a card or project on your blog sharing with us a new way of using your stamps. Or, you can use the tutorial they have to create a card or project.

I am using my stamps for the tree and bird from the Inspired by Stamping Sweet Aviary set. My image is really a branch (one of two in the set) if it is turned sideways and I've thought for a while I could use this one as a tree. So, that's what I did. The bird is from the IBS set Flowers Bloom. I am not sure if this has been done before but I haven't seen it...crossing my fingers that it hasn't. :-)

My punch around the page is Martha Stewart Bird and Branch Woodland punch and the grass edge punch is also Martha Stewart.  The flower button is from Jolee's Boutique Mother of Pearl  Notion Kit (from my sis). It was cream colored and I colored it with brown copics. The seam binding is also IBS sage.

Paper is PTI vintage cream, Stampin'Up! Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, and Sage Shadow.
Ink-Memento-Rich Cocoa


I'm entering my card into the Inspired by Stamping Customer Gallery-http://joannamunster.com/customer-gallery/

That's a branch? I see it as a beautiful tree too! I just lobe the little birds on the corners of the die you used, and the green ribbon provides such a nice contrast against that dark background! Very pretty!

Stunning! I love everything about this card. You are really on a roll. Maybe you could lend me some of your MoJo for a while.

Isn't it great when your mojo co-operates ... and so annoying when it doesn't!! Great card Brenda, love your 'tree', fab colour combo too!

Bonnie said...

OMGosh!! See what I've been missing. Your card is just so beautiful. That die cut, the images, and that button is to die for. The MS punch is perfect for the image. Thanks for the wonderful comment too, Brenda. Your heart and hand are gold!! :-)

Lovely, lovely birdie card! From the punching around the frame to the bird perched in the grass, this is so 'you', Benz.

Missed you! Hope all's been well with you.
