The bird's the word...

I found these cute little bird shapes at Michaels one day and knew I could do something with them that would be amazing. I decoupaged some DP and sanded the edges and inked the edges with distress ink. I decided to do a travel theme and stamped out a camera, First Class words, and some cool mini postcard images. I added some old brass looking buttons I got from a discount store (a real find) and added some spanish moss to look like a nest. Instead of ribbon for the hanger, I used some jute thread in keeping with the rustic look. Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting , whatever that may be.

Another heart to heart

I made another decoupaged heart for my niece this time in a Paris theme. I glittered the key and made a little flower out of some organza ribbon. I used some DP from SU! and adhered it to one of my wooden hearts, sanded the edges and inked them. Added some gems and ribbon flowers and a glittered key and bob's your uncle. Thanks for visiting.

Baby Girl Congratulations

I often visit the blog of Tammy Tutterow. Wow, is she talented. I was following one of her tutorials involving decoupage. I made this heart using some of SU! designer paper and sanded the edges followed by distressing with vintage ink from Tim Holtz. I made up the initials using Tim Holtz seasonal paper and used the build a brad from SU!. I made some velllum flowers for the initials to nest in. The sentiment is from SU! and the little clip is from Michaels. The satin ribbon from SU! really adds a touch of elegance. I also made a little glass bead bracelet to hang along side. The heart is like pressboard found at Michaels and easy to embellish. Thanks for looking and happy stamping.
