Publications and a Dirty Dozen Challenge

Hi there, I've got a few things to share with you today, starting with a card that I had published in Stamp It! Cards 2010 using Green Thumb from PTI along with a sentiment from SU!'s Warm Words set.

Second up is another card I had published recently in the Mar/Apr 2010 issue of Papercrafts using another PTI set, Guidelines Two. The die cut bird and flower are from SU!'s Birds and Blooms.

Finally, a card I just made yesterday and posted over at SCS for the monthly Dirty Dozen Past and Present Challenge, hosted by Joanne Basile. The challenge was to create something full of Spring, and the birds and the bees, but you couldn't use any border punches. For this clean and simple card, I used two sets from Cornish Heritage Farm: Sweet Bee and The Birds and The Bees (one of my favorite Kim Hughes sets!).

The felt flower was made using a strip of pink felt that I straight stitched on one side with button thread (for good holding power) and hand scalloped with a scissors on the opposite edge. After I'd done those two things, I pulled the thread tight and finger teased the felt until I had the desired flower shape. I finished it off with a fun button from MFT and my sentiment stamped on a die cut label.
