hello songbirds!


Clearly I should be ashamed for taking SO long to post!  (Surely my 2 loyal readers will understand! Foryou) but rather than go into a whole big boring story, let's just forget all our troubles for a few minutes while I share some cards I meant to post yesterday but unfortunately I had no access to my lifeline (aka my mac!!)

Isn't this delish?

BlueBird Close

I think so - I'm having an addiction to these colors - and what better addition to them than this beautiful new set from Clear Dollar Stamps!  This is called Songbird Silhouettes, and it is just so perfect for all your spring projects!!  The sentiments included are beautiful as well, and as always - so versatile!!


I also thought this little bird would be perfect for an "oriental" inspired card, and I am most proud of myself for having used the coolest thing I found laying around to stamp my background!!  (I know people have probably done it a million times, but please, let me hang on to my moment of glory! lol..)

Here's a little peek:


Yummy right? Can you guess what I used? 

Canvas.  how cool is that? First I used craft ink to get in nice and inked up, and just for good measure I then sprayed it with my Ranger walnut ink.  SO cool (well to me anyway!!)  My CS did get a bit damp but I dried it with my embossing gun and all was well - not too shabby I think?  Now it wasn't a solid look as you can see - some spots look better than others, but I think that looks just fine - here's the final look:


I'm really loving these colors too!

Now I know that you're just itching to have these birds right?  Well, you can add these birdies to your collection on Sunday March 1 - and in just a little while I will be showing you more sneak peeks so check back soon!!

In the meantime, don't forget to visit the CDS DT blogs (listed on my sidebar) for some amazing creations!!

Thanks for visiting!!



  1. Wow!! Both of these are incredible!! I love the color scheme on the first. Black and that teal blue are so stunning together. The second card is just amazing as well! I adore the bird on the branch and the way you cut out the papers! A brilliant idea!

  2. Wow, these are really gorgeous! The blu and black is so striking and I like the asian feel of the green/blue one with the big cutout flower patterned paper behind!

  3. Hi Alex! Your "Songbird Silhouette" Sneak Peeks are outstanding! I love, love the black and white on...so elegant.
    Your green and blue one is very asian in flavor and elegant, as well! The background canvas is cool, you're right about that!


I so appreciate your comments! Happy Scrapping! :)
