Early birdie & BLOG CANDY!!!

Please see blog candy info at the end of this post!!

Well, evidently I have completely skipped Fall and headed directly into Winter cards. LOOK at this CA-YOOT birdie :) This is a sneak peek from one of TAC's special sets available in December!! I know the card is ultra simple, but I really wanted the focus on the image.

I played with my Copic markers for this one. And don't you love all of the shimmer with the Stickles?!

Early Peace Bird card supplies:
Stamps: Early Bird, Ornamental Snowflakes, Tag Tidbits
Paper: Lilly Anna & Toodle Loo cardstocks, PTI white cardstock
Ink: Noir & Burnt Umber Palettes, VersaMark
Other: Transcendence Embossing Powder, Stardust Stickles, Copic markers, Mini-round Tab Punch, misc. ribbon, stapler, foam tape

I stamped the snowflakes in VM directly onto the card base and then heat embossed. The white panel is popped up on dimensionals.

Wait until you see the other images in this set! They are so cute! Another set that will be released next month is called Interact. I've been wanting a set like this forever! It's PERFECT for all of the interactive cards, mini-albums, and scrapbook pages everyone is doing... Can't wait to use it!

So, what do you think about the little birdie?

Ok, now for the BLOG CANDY! Since I blew by my 10,000th hit, I shall be putting together a little 'care package' of sorts! And what perfect timing with the winter holiday coming up?! Who doesn't like presents?! :) I don't know what it will be comprised of yet, but just know that it will be some stamping/papercrafting yumminess. :)

Just leave a comment on this post and you will be entered in the drawing!! I'll draw a name on next Sunday, Nov. 30th... this gives you plenty of time to enter (and tell your friends!!). in fact, if you post a link to this post on your blog, let me know and I'll enter your name twice!!

** Edited to add ** go HERE for some REALLY yummy blog candy that includes Copic markers!! Debbie's stuff is just beautiful, so you should lurk for awhile :)

Okay - this is my new favorite of yours. (I think it changes everytime you add something.) I especially love this one for the stickles and the Q.T. bird in the tree. The only thing missing is a pop-dot. Hee.

Angie said...

Barb you continue to inspire me each time I come here! I NEVER would have thought to use that set as a winter scene, but it is stunning! I think I will have to get that one and I haven't bought any new rubber in months!

Thanks for sharing!
