I'm showing you Baby Makes Three. The Love Birds have a little baby now and isn't he adorable!? Well, *this* one is a "he" ;-)
I stamped the main image on a Perfect Paper Panel and colored it with Copic markers. I decided to do them up as blue birds because we're trying to get some residents for our blue bird box--maybe this will help, LOL! Then I cut/embossed with a Classic Circle Nestabilities die and sponged some color on with some Distress Ink while it was still in the die. I used the Jumbo Scallop Die-namics (temporarily out of stock) die for the horizontal element and added my embellishments. Other MFT products I used on the card are Sour Apple card stock, Summer button collection, and Summer Glittered Garnishes.
Included with the set is this sweet little sentiment and a stamp for the vital statistics. Doesn't this make a great birth announcement card?
OK, so now that they're a family, they need somewhere to live, right? So I decided to make them a home, a little rose-covered cottage...
You didn't really think I could stop with a card, did you? ;-)
I made the fish-scale roof with the Jumbo Scallop Die-namics die. You probably can't tell very well, but I used the wood grain paper from the Sheltering Tree digi paper pack for the roof.
A little gingerbread trim with the Scalloped Scallop die...
And the new Fresh Cut Grass die for the sweet little lawn ;-)
And baby makes three!
I think I'll put this out on our covered front porch--just to give any blue birds in the area the idea that they're welcome--what do you think? ;-)
So now you need to hop on over to the oh-so-creative Sherrie's blog and see what she has for you. I *know* you'll be amazed! And lest I forget, there's blog candy somewhere along the way. Your chances of winning it will be better if you comment on every designer's blog. I'm just sayin'...
Thanks for stopping by and have fun hopping and shopping!
