STAMPlorations CAS Card challenge is joining in with the Blog Hop ....

Hello again ......

How's your Thursday going?
It's time for the STAMPlorations CAS girls to join in the fun for the Things With Wings Blog Hop and Linky Party

All the STAMPlorations teams are joining together for a month long Blog Hop ..... that's 31 days filled with winged-themed spring projects.  All five challenges will have the same theme for the month of May ...... Things With Wings and you can play along as many times as you like.

It's the turn of CAS today .......

I've used one of the birds from the Fowl Play stamp set, from the Bees Knees range, along with the balloons from Balloons and Banners, and one of the sentiments from Birds of Paradise ..... all of which are available on the STAMPlorations website

I stamped the bird onto a piece of white cardstock along with the balloons making sure they overlapped the beak ......

I stamped the bird again onto a separate piece of card, coloured him, and the balloons on the card, using Distress Inks and then fussy cut around the body of the bird before attaching it over the stamped image .....

This cuts out the need to fussy cut the legs!!! and also makes it look like he's holding the balloons in his beak
You can see I also stamped the wing again, fussy cut it and attached it using a foam pad for dimension.

The sentiment was stamped in the same colours of Distress that I'd used for the balloons ....

and I added another little bird on the inside .....

Hop along and join in the fun ....... there's prizes to be won

  •  a $15 Gift Certificate for the winner, voted by the DT
  •  and two randomly chosen winners of a $5 Gift Certificate each
Happy stamping!

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day.
We're off out this evening.  We're off to the Villa to see the Magic of Motown with some friends.  It should be a fun night!

There may be a little Dancing in the Street going on ..... everything will be Signed, Sealed, Delivered and there Ain't No Mountain High Enough!  
Sorry ...... I love Motown!!  Takes me back to when I used to go night clubbing.

Cheerio until next time ......
