Flying Home "Joy"

It's been a couple days, so must be time for another
bird card, made with the Flying Home set (Occasions p 41).
The images is colored with the Stampin' Blends

I took the "YOU" from the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies
(SAB p 17), flipped it and trimmed the "U" to form a "J".
Trust me, this "JOY" adjustment was not my idea,
I saw it done by another SU demonstrator.

I have been off a day all week, so this post is late!

Bubble Over Thank You with Wood Textures

This week, I needed a quick, easy masculine 
thank you card.  Currently, my go-to masculine product line
is the Bubble Over set with coordinating Bottles & Bubbles
Framelits Dies (Occasions p 32).

I had used the Fresh Fig/Sweet Sugarplum color combination
several cards back, and that was good enough for me!
I added a layer of Wood Textures DSP (Annual p 187),
to confirm that masculine vibe.  I really liked the wood
look as part of the bottle label, sealing the masculine feel.

Celebrate You with Beautiful Day

I haven't messed with Brusho Crystal Colour,
so I grabbed my Beautiful Day set (Occasions p 26),
some watercolor paper and clear embossing powder.
Once the image was embossed, I started sprinkling
Brusho.  I tend to like a lighter background, so went
with the Gamboge, Yellow and Brilliant Red.

After a bit of spritzing, I let the background dry.
I added the two die cuts from the FREE
Celebrate You Thinlits dies (SAB p 17) to 
finish this card.  These die cuts are a wonderful
way to pull a card together!
