This is day three for me and my last day of sneak peeks. Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments. I am so happy you like the new stamps and my creations.

To make the card I stamped Round Floral background stamp as my card base. I stamped Sweet Plaid Border on cardstock and cut it out. It looks like ribbon to me so I used as ribbon. I pleated it and stitched in place with DMC floss. I did adhere it in spots to hold in place and then I poked holes with my needle so it's easier to sew.
The beautiful flowers came from Ornate Floral can see it as a full background on the card I did yesterday.  I cut them out, inked the edges and adhered on top of each other with foam tape. The little page pebble is from Making Memories.
Those All Occasion sentiments are perfect to have...there is a little bit of everything there.

To make the card I stamped the Budding Branch right over the stamped Damask background. I colored the branch with Prismacolor pencils. The little bird from My Little Chickadees is stamped on patterned paper and cut out. I added glue to the body and sprinkled glitter over the top.

That is all for me this week. Other DT members will have more cards to show tomorrow.
Be sure to check the Impression Obsession blog  for all the info.

    One of those million little things is the brad usage in the middle of your embellisment flower. I've been wondering what to do with my big bud brads!! Thanks so much for a card example fitting a couple for whom a style wasn't popping onto my radar.
    Now, I'm stamping. DaDAH!

    I especially like your second card. The sentiment is wonderful. I never would have thought of putting glitter on a bird, but it looks really great. I'll have to try it. I love the color you chose for the damask background & the way you colored the branch.

  22. Marsha3:38 PM

    I like the way you mix several different patterns and textures, yet they all blend so well.
