black and white birds

The challenge from Stampin Royalty was to use punches and I love the Stampin up bird punch and need a renewal of vows card…. here it is the white frame  from a stamp tv tutorial about using nestabilities to trace a frame. The pears are  dew drops.

mojo sandbirds

Its almost beach weather so the Mojo Monday  136 design includes sandpiers  from Stampin’ up ‘Shore thing’,  a spellbinder-cut sun from the same set , a scalloped accessory, and orange ribbon   knotted.  the sun was cut with spellbinder  blossom.  I didn’t use the recommend4ed  button since it stuck out too far.

Don’t know that i like getting up early Saturday morning but I love my penny black frogs and this is the best way to show them off.  Because of the challenge the stamp is penny black  colored with twinkling h2os  the yellow of course is cuttlebugged,  the pink flowers punched and the knot tied.  The challenge was  3 flowers, 1 buttons and 1 bow(knot cause I don’t like my bows)    bye I’m off to Renaissance Faire….

earth rainy day frog

Its Earth day and its raining in ‘sunny’ southern California, and although the area lakes and ground need mosture,  I just don’t like so much rain.   Here’s a strip 0f background paper,  a stamped   frog in rain (by art gone wild)  and a paper pieced rain coat.  It’s hard to see but there’s a Stampin’ up little  ‘thank you’ under the frog.     Happy earth day.

Monochromatic brown frogs

The Penny Black  challenge 97 is to create a card in monochrome brown.. Since I have so many stacks of paper I just had to go through and choose the browns.   Isn’t the one with the flowers, perfect?  I like all my stamps but the frogs are best!

Kiss a frog

The Stampin’ Royalty challenge was to keep it simple sweetie and I just cased a simple card at Simplicity and  wanted to include a punched frog.  The card is  stamped  with a blue ‘Stamp  in the Hand’ shadow rectangle,  then green G-rated grass t  and finally a ‘thankyou’ from Stampin up.

KISS a frog has a new meaning here.
