What's Up Wednesday

Hey Peeps!

Dropping in to share a couple of cards. The first one is a fairy tale inspired card. This little prince from Handmade by Lizzie Girl is just too cute, and I really love the castle as well.  So many details on these stamps.  When I saw this castle, I just envisioned it as this gleaming, idyllic place (not unlike the fairytales of our youth) and had to give it some "stickles" treatment. 

This would be a cute birthday card for a young boy, or even a "soon to be" bride.

The Details:

1. Adhere background paper to 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base.
2. Stamp prince and castle (twice) on separate pieces of paper.
3. Color prince, paper piece gold crown, and add jewels.
4. Using Eclipse tape, I drew rays from a center point, cut the rays apart and used them as a template on one of the castle pieces for creating the sun ray background.  I used 3 different colors - yellow, orange, and a gold irridescent. Die cut this piece and a second larger piece in brown.
5.  Color second castle, fussy cut the castle leaving off the flags (they are already stamped on the first layer).  Adhere castle, color flags, and add stickles.
6. Stamp sentiment on gold paper and circle punch - adhere with foam tape.
7. Use gold pen to accent prince belt buckle and trace around label die to add detail to die cut.

I have one more card to share with you.  There is another paper wings gal with a birthday coming up next week.  Can you guess who? Happy Birthday C!

I used the Mission 004 Flight Plan as my inspiration, a few new stamps from the June release and a little creativity and came up with this fun birthday card.  I love that this is one of those cards that could be great for just about any sentiment and any color scheme! And, can you believe that the main flower, white flower and orange flower all came from the Flower Power set?  Love that!!!

The Details:

1. Adhere strip of paper to bottom of 4.25 x 5.5 inch card.
2. Stamp and cut out Lace Border stamp from yellow paper.
3. Stamp and emboss small flower stamp on textured gold paper. Adhere behind straight edge of border and then adhere both to card base.
4. Cover small tag in dictionary paper, ink paper and edges and stamp flower in orange. Cut small circle for hole and add ribbon.
5.  Use markers to color large flower directly on rubber.  Spritz with water and stamp.  Cut around flower and adhere to tag and flower with foam dots to card base.
6. Stamp sentiment in brown ink.  NOTE: I cut my sentiments apart when I want them to fit "just right".  This sentiment is from a longer stamp.
7. Add 3 brown pearls.

Thanks for dropping by the Aviary! I hope you enjoyed the projects today and hopefully they have inspired you too.  Come back soon for more stamping goodness!
