Hummingbird Frame

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Before I get to today's card, I must say a HUGE THANK YOU to Mynn Kitchen of On A Stampage...  for the amazing makeover she's given my blog!  To quote her, "I was trying to make it look kind of like one of your beautiful cards."  Well, I think she's succeeded, do you?  Let me know in the comments, and if you'd be so kind, hop over to her blog to leave some love on her latest post, please.

As promised last week, here's the last card you'll see for a while with a scalloped edge.  To give the beautiful blooms from one of last year's NDC plates the space they deserve, I only used the scallops and not the inner squares...


Card: Unbranded white, Clarity clear parchment, and Toffee Apple DP
Groovi Plates: Nested Scallop Squares, Jayne's Hummingbird, NDC flower
Tools and embellishments: Groovi and Pergamano embossing, piercing, and cutting tools, Perga Color pens, and Pergamano Brads

Three Bird Aperture

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing with you today is one I created, in bulk, for one of the sessions in my recent Virtual Groovi Retreat.  For each live I do, I send out 5 of the same card to group members, but because there were 4 demos in less than 24 hours, and one of them was a client's commission, I decided to make life easier for myself by only doing this card to send out... to TWENTY recipients!

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the Nested Scallop Squares, but after the card I'll share with you next week, you won't be seeing the scallops for a while!!!  Why?  Because those scallops alone meant there were over 10,000 picot cuts across the 20 cards... not counting those around the birds (from an NDC plate)!!!

It was all good fun though, and with the majority now received, I can confirm it was well worth the effort!



Card: Unbranded white, Clarity's clear parchment and Great Lakes DP
Groovi Plates: Nested Scallop Squares, Sprig Background, Tina's Daisy Flowers Parchlet (circles)
Tools and embellishments: Groovi and Pergamano embossing, perforating, and cutting tools, Perga Color pens, and Pergamano Brads

Ribbons and Butterfles With Love

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing today is the advanced version of the one I created for the first of two Facebook craft alongs last month.  Apart from the square frames, every element came from the NBUS February Groovi NDC plate...

As soon as I saw the plate, the ribbons I've used in the outer corners evoked thoughts of butterflies... I am butterfly crazy after all... hence why I colored the tails the way I did.  Grin.

Card: Unbranded white, Clarity clear parchment, and Toffee Apple designer paper
Groovi Plates: Nested Scallop Squares and NDC plate
Tools and embellishments: Clarity and Pergamano embossing, piercing and cutting tools, gold gel pen, Clarity brads, and brads from my stash (corner ones)

Challenges...
NBUS #14 at NBUS Challenge
#377 Use Snippets at Pixie's Snippets Playground

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.
