TECC51 Wild Bird

January 16th, 2009

I’ve had some camera issues this week so I’ve had to go *old school* again and scan my card rather than photograph it.  My New Catty Kick Off Class is tonight and I was excited to share my projects but that will have to wait till the weekend when I will be able to use the camera again.  So – sorry for my lack of posts this week and for the less than fabulous pic of today’s card.

It’s Friday and besides being SU Class day for me, of course it’s Cupcake Friday and time for TECC51.  Wow – can you believe Taylor has been coming up with these fun sketches for almost a whole year now?  I hope you’ll play along with us.  You can view the sketch and get all the details on Taylor’s blog.

You might remember when I posted my Z-fold candy box card last week that I said I had started with a different background, but decided to abandon it…well this sketch was perfect for it.


This is the same wild and fun wrapping paper that I used on my Mom’s birthday card a couple of weeks ago.  I just love it.  It’s brighter and prettier IRL!  The wrapping paper is layered onto Basic Black cs and then onto a Real Red card base.  The little bird from SU Fast & Fun Notes is stamped on Shimmer White cardstock and colored with Copics.  The flower image is replaced by this super duper cute self adhesive felt flower from the TE Store.  It’s a pretty red IRL, but scanned kind of dark.  There is a row of Zva Creative black crystals at the bottom of the card.  I added some green buttons from my stash and since I didn’t have any black embroidery thread and I hate nekkid buttons I used a black glaze pen for a faux thread effect.  Some retired Cool Caribbean and Marigold Morning cas were just right with the wrapping paper…sometimes hoarding can be a good thing I guess.  LOL!

Let’s see what the rest of the Cupcake Crew has cooked up!

  • Ana Wohlfahrt
  • Donna Baker
  • Jackie Pedro
  • Monika Davis
  • Sherrie Siemens

    Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
