Winter Vacation

Just a reminder...

As I previously said, Birdie Brown is going to take a winter vacation from December 15th, 2012 through January 6th, 2013.
During the vacation, I will not reply Etsy conversations and emails, and this blog will not be updated.

I'll be back on January 7th, 2013 with a new freebie and a new challenge!

I am very thankful for all that you did for Birdie Brown this year and...

November Release - Sample Cards

I added three new digital stamps to my shop yesterday. Today, I'd like to share my sample cards for them.




It was sad that my hubby said the "J" looked like a jelly beans... No, it is a sock!! LOL!
I colored the image with Copic Markers, then did fussy cutting. The background paper is from Aspen Frost paper pad (Basic Grey). For the scalloped part, I used a polka dot background stamp from Hero Arts. To finish off the card, I added some gingham ribbon (stash) and a button.

++ supplies ++






Well... I love this image, of course. But I wonder if I can drink something comfortably with this mug. The holly is obstructive, isn't it? LOL.
The sentiment was from Hero Arts and the hearts are from Perk Up! set by TSG. They were stamped with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

++ supplies ++







This is my most favorite of this month's release!!:)
I confess that it took me over one hour to color this image up!! But I'm so pleased with how it turned out. As you can see on the second photo, I added some glitter to the ground and ornaments. To make a snowing scene, I used liquid pearl. I combined the image panel with some beautiful papers from Aspen Frost paper pad (Basic Grey), did machine stitching, and added bakers twine and buttons. The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!:)
