Caged Birds

Today's card was inspired by a beautiful creation made by Jami Sibley. I can't find the exact card on her blog as I had just saved it to my hard drive, but it must be there! Anyway, go over and check out all of her beautiful work.

I changed the card up a little, using a different stamp set, ribbon, flowers and embellishments. I used two of my faves on this card, Aviary stamp set and Melon Mambo! I would have liked the black birdcages to be darker and more definite. Maybe I should have used black embossing powder!

I teamed the Melon Mambo with some Crumbcake and Black CS and added some beautiful Polka Dot Melon Mambo ribbon.

I punched the sentiment out using the Decorative Label Punch.

I made this for a dear friend's birthday! I haven't seen her yet to give it to her, so it will be belated. Hopefully she doesn't read this blog first and guess it is her!

Any Questions? Just ask!

Special Get Well Wishes

Today I have a card that I made a few weeks ago for a special little girl at the school where I work. She got quite ill and was in hospital for a week or so, so the staff decided to send some get well wishes to her and her family.

I thought that the image from the Forever Young set would be perfect for this card. It was exactly what we were wishing for the family, their little girl to be up and playing and healthy again.

I stamped the image directly onto some DSP, which I had never done before. This is from the Timeless Portrait DSP. I used some black embossing powder on the image to make a darker print with a more striking contrast.

I paired the DSP with some Whipser White and Island Indigo CS.

I finished the card off with some Island Indigo Ruffle Ribbon (Yum! Love it!), and some white and teal coloured flowers. I then used the Jewellery Tag Punch to add some Get Well Wishes.

You will all be glad to know that the little girl is now back at school and all seems to be well! Great news!
