Seize The Birthday - Summer Activities

 

Hello!  We've got a new challenge for you at Seize The Birthday, chosen by Barb, and it's Summer Activities.


I seem to spend most of the summer tackling the weeds in the garden!  I do have some flowers growing in between them though ;)

I used all Tim Holtz products to create this wildflower garden.  Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some more summer activities from the team, and from our Surprise Party Guest, Lols, and join in the summer fun!

Seize The Birthday - Use Your Favourite Technique


Hello!  Time for a new challenge at Seize The Birthday, chosen by Ashwini - it's Use Your Favourite Technique. 


My favourite technique is messing around with Distress Inks.  Whether it's smooshing or sloshing or watercolouring, I just love using them!

For this card I smooshed, sloshed and watercoloured some Seedless Preserves and Bundled Sage onto a STAMPlorations image and my background, and added a sentiment strip.

Seize The Birthday - Butterflies or Hummingbirds

 

Hello!  We've got a new challenge for you at Seize The Birthday - Butterflies or Hummingbirds.


Not much call for hummingbirds in this part of the world, but I've got plenty of butterflies.  This one is from Visible Image.  The background is a gel print, the main mask/stencil from Simon Says Stamp.  The sentiment is from Wow!

I had another similar background, so I stamped another butterfly from the set to make this blank card:

Steppin' out in style with this card for my STAMPlorations Tuesday Inspiration post.  I used Groovy Platform Shoes, which is available in the Outlet Store if you fancy a bargain!
