Made a couple cards today. I have decided to try and make a extra card when I can so I have a few around when I need one. So here I made 2 but made a slight change in color on one just to keep it interesting. I got a 6 piece die set of Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Circles awhile back and decided to give them a try. I do like them for making a quick circle but I still rely on using my cricut for most cuts. I bought a pack of Ebony & Ivory Core'dination colorcore cardstock last weekend and wanted to try this paper out also. So I embossed the paper with birds & swirls cuttlebug folder and then sanded it with a fine sand paper to bring out the white underneath. I am really liking this paper. I used some Jilliebean soup twine to wrap around the paper with a yellow button. The bird stamp is a wooden block stamp from Michael's dollar bins. The your tweet saying is from a studio G stamp another dollar stamp. Not sure where I picked it up at. Believe it or not I used some plain ole bic markers to color the bird. I liked how bright these markers were. I do have some copic markers but only 11 of them and not the colors I wanted to use. Some day I will have more. I just add to my little stash of copics one at a time. Here and there.
