You're Tweet Card

Hello fellow crafters and a very Happy New Year to you.  I hope your holidays where splendid.  My were good but I am fighting a cold at the moment.

Anyway on to some craftiness....

I am so excited to be a guest designer over at the CropStop this month for the 18th and the 25th of January.   They also have an on-line store where they sell several items from popular brand-names.

 I'm thrilled, as this is my first time being gust designer.  A few months ago I won the challenge over on their blog.  As a prize I received a cute embossing folder by Couture Creations from the Fresh and Fun collection call Smooch.  With Valentines right around the corner I thought it would  be the perfect tool to use for my creation for their blog this week.

Here is what I came up with:

Can't tell from the photo,but that is a shiny gold arrow as well, to match the gold highlight on the bird


  • CuttleBug
  • Embossing folder: Smooch by Couture Creations
  • Stamp set (for sentiment):  From Close to my Heart called My Sunshine (S1304)
  • Dies:  Lawn Fawn - large scalloped rectangles and  a flourish not sure  by who (comment below if you know)
  • Lace ribbon  -- up-cycled from an old shirt
  •  Flower (stash)
  • Copper brads (one for birds eye and one for center of flower)
  • Speed ball roller for wet embossing (I used roller on the inside of the folder for the debossed (top layer)  and straight on the paper for the second layer.
  • Inks - Cotton Candy pink, Chocolate brown and gold metallic (to accent the cute little bird - he needed to stand out more)
  • Arrow embellishment: by Anna Griffin
  • Gold bow
  • Adhesive - I like Zots and Tombow
  • Card stock - in cream 
  • Patterned paper - brown with polka-a-dots from K&Company 
  • Printer for inside sentiment

My inside sentiment made it a "thank you" vs. a "Valentine "
