a little birdy told me....

I made this card using the bird from the Felicity Acrylix stamp set ( ctmh January 2010) and the Veranda Level 2 papers.
I love the soft colours in this paper kit. sooo me. It was also my first time using my new Nestabilities that I bought at the Town Scrapper in Petrolia... from my friend Phebe ! see that neat embossed edge on the green paper?
I stamped the bird in buttercup ink, and added prisma glitter and twilight sponged inking to it, to make it stand out .
Then a little extra touch, a pre-fabbed rose
(thanks Julia H)

I definately need to make more of these cards... lol.

Triple Play

This months cute perk for acrylix purchases is called Triple Play. It is a kit containing 3 mini albums and a stamp set. I got mine for $5 by buying $45 in new acylic stamps. (see previous post! ) That was fine, since I had to have the new stamps ... AND

I got a stamp set for $5 and made 18 note cards as gifts! I thought it was a fabulous value.
I am posting a photo of the stamp set so you can see how versatile it is... brackets, journal lines, cute scallop border stamp, florals, phrases.

I am posting the results made using ONE of the THREE Triple Play mini album kits that I converted into a card set, using directions from Gloria Rogers . The cards are 3 1/2" square. Gloria posted lovely adaptations of the mini album pages , converting them into folders that hold 6 note cards. I copied her work exactly as she tells you to do it in the tutorial.
Then I created a template for a 3 3/4 inch square envelope and made 6 matching envies from some Christmas B and T that match perfectly . (as of course all the Close to my Heart colours match ! ha ha I love it.)

Anyways, check out Gloria's tutorial blog at
Even if you dont have Triple Play, its a darn cute mini card folder!

Okay... I have to share this... because I love so many of the new stamps and papers in the New idea book for Fall Winter. PLUS they have come out with a bunch of new fresh gorgeous summer colours that I already love. Pear, Sky, Pacifica, Sunset, Cotton Candy, Lagoon. Wow. I ordered Magnifique and Olivia level 2 paper packs , and then Circle of Love and Natures Gift for my new acrylic stamps. oooooooo and some new bling... pink/red/purple rhinestones and green/blue rhinestones.... so satisfying since they come in micro to 1/4 inch in size .

I am all set to create 2011 Christmas cards... in September!!

Recovering from surgery has its advantages.... wink!
