Enough Is Enough – No More Birthday Cards For JP

Dot was tired by the time we finished Skyping today but I had time to show her the card I was working on.

Sometimes we have a good connection and sometimes not … so not sure how much she saw of the card … hope she likes what she sees in the flesh.

Used Dina Wakley stamps called Positive Women and Indigo Blu stamps Tasty Textures.

Paints were used for the stamping from PaperArtsy called Fresco Finish Autumn Fire and Bora Bora.


Had time to make this CAS card for JP’s birthday which means that Claire has a few to choose from.

Brenda, my lovely teamie from FSC did a post the other day here and mentioned about the stamping on her card (the trees looked drunk).  She assured us they weren’t.  Well that’s just what my sentiment stamping looks like … very wonky … but it really is straight.  Brenda I believe you!!!! lol

Made an aperture on plain white card with Sheena’s Perfect Partners Birds Of A Feather.

With a spare piece of copy paper, which had painty bits on it, I cut out another bird.

Closed the card and placed the painty die cut bird in the die cut space.  Hope you followed that girls!!!!

  1. Two beautiful cards Shirley. I love the journalling style on the first one and the beautiful use of the aperture on the second xx

    Hi Shirley. Wow…it has turned out absolutely stunningly!!! What a gorgeous image from Dina Wakley she is! I think your background is perfect for this style of stamp. It looks so beautiful ‘in the flesh’. And I love the texture on the bird – it gives the impression of feathers…very clever!
    hahaha drunk trees…I had a look and friendly giggle.

    I’m not saying a word Shirl for fear of further incriminating myself !!

    I adore the colours on your first card and the second is so stylish and the sentiment say’s it all.

    Two great l cards, so opposite each other in style but equally fantastic when looking at them.

    Drunken trees… That’s it, blame it on the tool and not the workman!!! We will not ask how many beverages were ingested before the “trees” got drunk!
    In your case Shirley I can see the top right corner of the card is more open than the rest and that certainly would skew the perspective. For the bottom sentiment it is harder to spot the reason. Anyway it’s a great CAS design Shirley.
    Love your Mixed Media card too and oh these yummy texture stamps…
