Swan Lake Special Fold

Recently, my friend Buffy used the Swan Lake set,
(annual p 142), which reminded me that this is a really
beautiful set, sitting neglected on my shelf.

It works really well on a special fold
card, where the different images can be
distributed across the project.  Simple, sweet, done.

Party Panda on Petal Passion (say that 3x fast!)

I haven't posted many projects with the Party Pandas
(SAB p 13), but they are a wonderful, FREE
Sale-A-Bration set, that you can get FREE with a
$50 merchandise purchase.  They are cute as can be,
and can be colored with pencils, blends or your inks.
In this example, I added a layer of the Petal Passion
Designer Series Paper (Occasions p 23), because the 
black and white leafy pattern goes well with this focal image.
I have been leaving the sentiments off cards lately,
so that I can use them for birthday, or congrats, or 
whatever, when the time comes to mail them out.

Flying Home on Wood Textures Strips

Happy Monday!!  I'm back to birds.
I  REALLY do get a lot of mileage out of the Flying Home set
on page 41 of the Occasions catalog.  The birds and 
Stampin' Blends are a match made in crafting heaven.
The images provide cues for getting your color
contrasts just right.  The Bird Banter sentiments 
(Occasions p 42) do double duty with Flying Home, 
giving you lots of birdie goodness.
 When you're done coloring,  just layer
the images on to some Wood Textures DSP to coordinate
that rustic look with that nature image.
