One Card 4 Ways

Hello!  Happy New Year's Eve!  Its the last post of 2012!  I had a little crafty time the other day and I ended up using the same image 4 ways.  I snapped some photos and thats what I have for you this evening.  For all versions I am using PTI cardstock in white and blueberry sky.  I am using versamark ink, white embossing powder, blueberry sky ink, and pure poppy ink.  The image is from PTI Through the Trees.  The tag is from hero arts.  The sentiment is from PTI Through the Trees.
Version One:  For version one I matted the image on white card and rounded the corners.  I adhered the tag to the bottom of the image.  I wrapped the twine (Crate and Barrel) around the card several times and tied a bow.  I added red stickles to the bird.  I used red bling on the flowers (hard to see the red in these pics- sorry I am no photographer).
Version Two:  I broke the rule of three by only having one red thing (the bird).  I covered the bird in stickles.  I added blue bling at the bottom.
Version Three:  I used my snowflake CB folder on the base.  I added blueberry sky grosgrain ribbon and red buttons.  I covered the bird in stickles.
 Version Four:  I think this may be my favorite.  I used swiss dot CB folder on the base.  I rounded the base corners and also the blue corners.  I covered the bird in stickles and added stickles to the flower centers.  I used saddle stitch pure poppy ribbon.

Well what do you think?  Which is your favorite?  I have to say since I did all the stamping first and embossed all at once these came together very quickly.  Might make a nice giftset.  All you would need is a little box or something.  Thanks as always for stopping by!  I hope 2013 is good to you!

Thanks a Million

Hello out there???  Sorry I have left you hanging for like ever!  December got the best of me this year!  I have made so much stuff and took pictures of none of it!  I was making it and sending it out the door!  Things were a total whirlwind.  But anyway I am back with a sad iphone pic!  Not even a nice edited picture for you but hey its the thought that counts.  Anyway a clean and simple one color card that I made with some new stamps I got.  The tag is from hero arts and it came with a matching die.  Love it!  The die has the middle popped out so its so easy to line up.  The stamps are cling- not my favorite but still they work fine.  Everything else is from PTI and the color is scarlet jewel.  That is the original (1st version) ink.  I love it.  If you are still out there reading I am hoping to get back to blogging soon.  Thanks for hanging in there with me!
