Hello All!! Happy Tuesday!! Boy the day has just flown by. Scott and I had some business to attend to all day so I am just now arriving back home again just in time to leave with my girls to their GEMS Girls Club that I am also a leader for. I wanted to quickly post something for you though before I left. Hopefully I have time to Blog Hop upon my return.
The two cards I am sharing with you today are using images from Spiral Whisper. The first card uses two different sets of images: Birds and Trees, that are to be released tomorrow. The sketch I used was the MOJO 83 (this week's sketch) SSNOTIME82 (Hang it Up). I hung the little birdhouse with ribbon at the bottom. The images are colored with Prisma Color and Gamsol, cut out, mounted on dimensionals and glittered for some added sparkle. (I love Glitz!!) I used some of my favorite Nestabilities, Labels 4 and the classic frame (Both available here). All of the designer paper is from Stampin UP (Bella Rose, Ski Slope, and A Walk in the Park). The cardstock is SU Old Olive and Bazzil Bitter Chocolate.
This second card uses a single stamp called Emily and Burt from Spiral Whisper. Isn't she just a cute little princess with her frog. I colored her with gamsol. I created the designer paper using a pink piece of designer paper from Imaginesce and the Gesso techinique for yesterday's Technique Challenge (TLC217). The stamp I used on this technique was a flourish from SU Brocade Basics. Designer paper works well with this technique since it is thicker than magazines or newspaper and holds its shape better. First I put a couple layers of Gesso (available at Michaels or any Art store with the paint supplies since it is a primer). The I stamped versamark flourishes randomly around the DP and clear embossed it. Then I sponged different shades of pink on the paper highlighting the stamped areas. The layout is using one of the cards from Jammerz gallery, the featured stamper which can be found here. (She has some awesome Bella cards!!) I loved how she used the vellum for the sentiment. I changed the way I did my ribbon, the image, stamps, sentiment, and some of my colors.

Stamps: Digital images from Spiral Whisper ( Birds set and Trees set available tomorrow)
Paper: Bella Rose DP (Chocolate Chip color), SU Ski Slope (top and bottom background panel), and A Walk in the Park Dp (paper inside the classic frame behind the image), Bazzill Bitter Chocolate CS, and Old Olive CS
