This month's new release called Tweet That is just too much fun to work with, so today I have two projects to share with you.
 
My first project uses some Lilly Bean Picket Fence wood grain designer paper, dies, and Scenic Selections.  After stamping my images in memento tuxedo black onto MFP snow storm white, I pulled out my prismacolor markers and got to coloring.  Once the coloring was finished and my images cut out, I die cut a white picket fence, three layers of scalloped borders, and then a trio of clouds.  Once I was done die cutting everything, I stamped the cracked background from Background Fun in Tim Holtz weathered wood distress ink onto my die cut fence to give it some added texture before adding it to the card.  After finding some Jolee's die cut grass in my stash, and adding the scallop layers, I was ready to finish assembling my card.  All of the remaining elements were popped up using various layers of pop dots before highlighting the birdbath water with waterfall ice stickles and some stamped birds from Scenic Selections.
My second project is a little more simple and utilizes some Cosmo Cricket Tea For Two designer paper along with some mini pink/purple roses, punched leaves, spellbinders, brads and a cuttlebug heart embossing folder. 
 
After stamping my images in memento tuxedo black onto MFP snow storm white and coloring with prismacolor markers, I cut out the images before die cutting, and sponging, the tags my saying would be stamped on.  I then ran some red card stock through the big shot using a cuttlebug heart square embossing folder before layering onto white card stock using some Making Memories heart brads.  Once my saying was stamped onto the spellbinder tags, sponged and popped up, I added the mini roses with some punched Martha Stewart leaf branches before adding my final images.
 
I'm really happy with the way both cards turned out especially since I was dealing with another migraine this last week.
 
Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.

  5. Well, you certainly pushed your way through that migraine with these two beauties. Lots of work on the first one. It was just a little thing, but I really like the Crackle stamping on the fence. What a great idea!
