Create with TLC: Birds


Happy Wednesday to you.  I hope your week is moving productively along.  Mine has been very very busy.  I have been doing some late Spring cleaning only to discover that I am a paper hoarder.  I have a TON of paper and have been going through the stacks (literally stacks) to organize and take inventory of it all.  I am hoping to sell a lot of it, because it is overtaking my house.  I teach cardmaking classes so I would buy paper in bulk and I guess I didn't realize how much I have accumulated over the years.  Wowza!  I am checking in to using my Etsy store, but since it isn't "handmade" by me I wonder if I can sell it there.  Hmmm??  I will investigate.

In the meantime, I would like to share a card I made using a beautiful (in my humble opinion) image that I received from Create with TLC's Ocotber Club.  If you have never joined one of the clubs, you should because Paulette packs them with all kinds of awesome goodies.  She has a mini club going on right now.  Check it out here.

Here's my card using the beautiful birds...

Beautiful Birds

I kept this card really simple.  I layered on dp onto a 6x6 cardbase.  I used my MS lace punch to cut a strip and tucked that under a frame I created using my Cameo.  I mounted the image (pre-colored) on the frame and added Stickles to the tail to add some sparkle.  I finished the card off by added some pearls in the corner.  Very simple, but lovely I think.

I will link this up to this week's Show it off Sunday link over on the Create with TLC blog.  I would love to see your work there.

Thanks for looking and commenting.

Now get to creating...

Remember:  There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities in cardmaking.


  1. Gorgeous, Candy! I love how you framed the birds. Thanks for joing us at The Paper Players!

  2. Candy, your card is gorgeous. I just love what you do with your Cameo. I think it is normal to have lots of paper - my husband tells me I could have my own Scrapbook store - the truth is he is right.

  3. Just gorgeous! Your shading is stunning! Thank you for joining us this week at the Paper Players!


Thank you so much for your sugar sweet comments! :-)
