I've been playing around with a little challenge that I gave to myself. My "flying by to say hi" stamp from Lawn Fawn's "Flying By" clear stamp set has been sitting on my desk and I decided to use it to create a variety of cards. I looked through my stamp collection and pulled out the ones that had an image of something that can fly.
A while ago Teri Anderson shared a card on her blog that used Lawn Fawn's paper airplane from her "Flying By" clear stamp set. She used handwriting paper as the layering paper for her card and I thought that was brilliant...and told her so. While I was looking through some of My Mind's Eye 6" x 6" paper pads, I discovered some card size handwriting paper in one of them. I stamped my paper airplanes onto it and fussy cut them. Here's the card.
I decided to create a card with birds flying on it and Lawn Fawn had exactly what I wanted in her "Gnome Sweet Gnome" clear stamp set. The grass, bird bath, and birds on my card are from that set.
PaperTrey Ink has the image for a hot air balloon in their "Everyday Button Bits" clear stamp set. I used that image on my next card.
My sweet friend Janet gave me a set of Memory Box cloud dies. I used them on some of my "Flying by" cards including this next one. I don't have a kite stamp in my stash, but I found a paper piecing pattern for one on the Scrapbooks, ETC. site.
I learned how to stiffen my baker's twine while I was watching a video from an online class. I dipped the twine in Glossy Accents.
That's all I am going to share today, but I do have other "flying by" cards to share with you tomorrow.
It's finally going to be a good sleeping night...NO HUMIDITY!
Talk to you tomorrow!
