Don't forget your stamps!

Hi everyone!  This week lets start with the lyrics and then have a photo blog post.  I took pics of each step for this weeks bundle of cards.

~ScrappyDew digital cutting file called "Spring has sprung"
~Bird Houses from Stampin Up 1996
~Flower cart stamp from Stampendous 1995
~Spectrum Noir Color Pencils and alcohol markers
~DCWV Textures Stack 180
~KNK Zing and Make the Cut software
~and a whole bunch of other stuff I didn't write down.

Here come all the pics....
Let's get this show on the road.  I am using the
Windows XP computer that was Bob's.
He recently purchased 2 Dell's.  As you can see
I am using Make the Cut software.
Here is little Zenith Zing.  This was my first cutter.
She looks so little compared to the Silver Bullet.

These are the stamps that I have been wanting to
use for a long time.  I stamped them using
StazOn Jet black.  Used my embossing heat tool
to set the ink.  (won't smudge that way)


I spent an afternoon coloring each stamp.  Then made
5 copies of the hand colored sheet.
This is why I used my Zenith Zing and MTC.  I wanted to
use the Print N Cut feature.  (Still haven't figured it out in SCAL4)
From the 5 copies, I PNC each sheet.  Giving me
5 bundles of Bird Houses and Flower Cart!
I wanted to make cards in a box. These are the
colors I picked out.
This is plastic from a 2ltr pop bottle.  Cut the top and
bottom off.  Try to straighten out the plastic that is left.
Cut into 2" strips.  Cut strips into 1/4 inch strips.  I then glued
a plastic stick to the back of each of the bird houses, flower card and
the blue bird from the SD File "Spring has Sprung".
These are the final result.  All 5 card are done.
let me show you how they turned out!
"A little bird told me. I missed your birthday."
Happy Birthday.  This is the phrase that I put
on each card.  This is the left side.
This is the right side.
This is the finished card in all it's glory.
The little blue bird is my favorite bird to use.  It
is from the Spring has Sprung file by Scrappy Dew!
Here is a better view.
These are all the envelopes.

That was my big project for the week.  The cards are even addressed and ready for the mail tomorrow.  I hope the recipients enjoy them (and I get out of the dog house)!

I hope to have a man's birthday card to show you for next week.  Then the rest of September I will be sewing several items for my daughters birthday.  I will post pics as I get them done.

Have a blessed upcoming week, Jana
