Scalloped Edged Shaped Card

Scalloped Edged Shaped Card...that's quite a mouthful! :)

I love watching youtube videos of card making and get some email feeds about some great videos.  I love Lily Pad videos...she speeds them up and just has this quirky music playing in the background and they are just fun to watch.  Anyway, she did one recently with a Spellbinder die and I thought it was very cute so decided to do my own with the same shape.  You can see hers HERE (as well as her video) and my versions here:

I inked the background with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and if you leave the paper in the die then you can get a cute little white border around it.  I used the Jillibean/Unity Gazpacho Soup stamp set (SO CUTE!) and cut the clothes hanging on the line out of brightly colored Paper Trey Ink papers.  Colors in this photo are not quite right...and I did not doing any adjustments so it is what it is! ;)

I used a little Glossy Accents on the teensy birds.  And that was about it.

Happy Crafting!

And a total non crafting aside....if you are a wildlife lover or a birder then you should check out the eagle cam in Decorah, IA.  It is a live feed...24 hours a day of a pair of eagles and now their 3 hatchlings (less than a week old).  It is just fascinating to watch and read about.  The parents are feeding the eaglets about every 2 hours so if you don't get a glimpse of the babies when you first log on (the mother or father sits on them) check back.  In a few more days they will not be under the parents quite so much.

  2. Such a cute card Susan. Loved how they were glossy acecnted very clever.

  3. Like the die cut, inking & stamping. Makes me think of the song about the itsby bitsy teeny weeny polka dot bikini. Saw the baby Eagles moving
    under the adult Eagle as well as the ants or whatever the critters are on the fish remains in the nest. Watched the one adult Eagle close eyes last night & nod off to sleep.
