Ivy’s Shimmer Cardstock Birdhouse Card

Ivy is bringing a bit of Spring to the blog today! Our Spring-like weather in SoCal inspired her to make a shimmery birdhouse card to brighten someone’s day!

Ivy used pretty pastels to make this Magic Iris Birdhouse Add-On card extra special. She added fun details with Mini Pop-Up Butterflies and Little Music Notes. She added the delicate die cut greeting from Small Stitched Envelope.

The Shimmer cardstock adds lots of fun texture along with the shimmery shine! And it looks great using the reverse side to add a smooth contrasting element.

Thanks so much for this sweet bit of early Spring, Ivy!

Do you have a budding musician, an upcoming recital to celebrate, or maybe you just love music? Elena has a great idea for your next party! Make it a celebration of music using Critter Concert and Little Music Notes!

For her music-themed party, Elena designed cupcake toppers, party favors and beverage labels along with a fun piano inspired framed decoration and a letter board sign spelling out the party theme!

She combined the Little Music Notes Treble Clef and the instrument-playing critters to create these charming cupcake toppers!

The party favors were made using our Tiny Gift Box die! I love how the black music notes and neutral color critters look with the white boxes!

The adorable beverage labels combine a Mini Picture Frame in Paper Bag cardstock and the cute little bird from Critter Concert playing all the percussion instruments!

A Beautiful Fab Flowers Card by Lynette!

Lynette joins us today to share a beautiful card featuring Fab Flowers, Little Music Notes and Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Backdrop!

Lynette layered the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Backdrop over Really Rainbow Pink Tutu paper to create a sweet pink polka dot background for the flowers and music notes!

To give the Fab Flowers a pretty variegated look, Lynette first inked up around the edges with Sunflower ink and stamped the flowers. Then she inked the same flower again with Ballet Slippers and stamped over the first flowers (using a Misti or Mini Misti makes this step really easy). Then she finished each flower by stamping the details with Bubblegum ink. The cute bird from Little Music Notes was die cut from Watercolor Wishes Horseshoe paper and then the tail and wing were sponged with Mermaid ink!

Thanks so much for the beautiful inspiration today, Lynette!
