A pair of New Home cards

Boring post title, huh?  Where words fail, perhaps pictures make up for the lack:


The ever-lovely Webster's Pages makes this patterned paper.  All I needed to do was add a sentiment, and on another piece of WP paper, stamped the bird and cage from Inspired By Stamping's Aviary to create a little accent.


Stamps: sentiment - Boards & Beams - Papertrey Ink; bird, cage - Aviary - Inspired By Stamping Paper: Soft Sky - SU; patterned - Webster's Pages Ink: Versafine Onyx Black - Tsukineko Fibers: pink twine - American Crafts Accessories & Tools: one pearl

More gorgeous Webster's Pages paper on the next card.  My only contributions to the card:  a sentiment from PTI (again), and a sweet little focal point up top.



The bow was made with Mottle Brown seam binding from Hug Snug / The Zipper Stop (100 yards for $9.50...I'm tellin' ya, it's a bargain over there!  Be aware that there are so many color choices, it'll make your head spin.), and a bit of twill and crocheted lace.  A key from Tim Holtz dangles from the ribbons.


Stamps: Boards & Beams - Papertrey Ink Paper: Vintage Cream - PTI; Webster's Pages pattern Ink: Versafine Onyx Black - Tsukineko Fibers: Mottle Brown seam binding - Hug Snug - The Zipper Stop; bit of twill; bit of crocheted lace Accessories & Tools: metal key - Tim Holtz

Thanks for joining me, and I hope you have a terrific weekend!

Absolutely gorgeous cards, Colleen. You've used the patterned papers so well. Your work always has that elegant touch to it and it's no different this time! Loved your cards.

Well, aren't those pretty! The paper couldn't be more perfect for new home cards, and I love how you added the key to the second card. You remind me that I have some bird cages already die cut and needing to use up. First things first...

Oh, Colleen, was für bezaubernde Karten.
So zart und wieder so fein gestaltet.
Ich finde sie so schön, dass ich sie nicht verschenken würde :-)

Herzlichst Sophie <3
