In Card Land there is always Christmas In July. PANIC! The year is half over and Christmas will be here before we know it. I still feel like I just put the decorations away. This does not stop me from making Christmas Cards since it is my favourite holiday. In typical manner, I missed the CASE Christmas post. One day I will be on time! I love angels so she is my magical look and she is surrounded by jewels...from Dollarama:) My sentiment is nothing special but it still is saying something even if I don't want it to snow quite yet.
Dark burgundy cardstock and extra pieces of cardstock lying around. Tim Holtz dye pads. Hummingbird stamp, versamark dye pad, perfect pearls powders, blue marker, jewels, "Happy Birthday" sticker, stickles.

FairyTale Stampers-Anything Goes
My hubby's Uncle is having a birthday and he loves birds. I realized soon after I don't have that many bird stamps-The Horror...The Horror! Guess what I must buy? If any people stamp and make cards you soon accumulate all these extra pieces of cardstock in various pieces. I can't throw them out no matter what. Many are just too pretty and I have a fetish for paper. Hell, if my hubby wrapped himself up in great paper I would have fun unwrapping him but then I would have to nicely fold the paper and save it...the mood would be gone. Oh yes back to the card. I was trying out the new Tim Holtz stamping pads and created the colour combo for one part of the background and layered pieces of paper on top. I had little pieces left over from something that was cut out using the sizzex so I coloured the "leaves" blue and placed them in the 4 corners surrounding the hummingbird. To create the hummingbird, I stamped the image with versamark and then , using a brush, added the perfect pearls so Mr. Flight of Fancy would gleam. Jewels were added to the bottom yellow piece and around the blue leaves. Black stickles was added as well as the sentiment up top. So there ya have it-Have a great weekend!
