Aviary Thanks for Paper Players

I had a little bit of free time this afternoon and was able to play along with the challenge that's about to end over at The Paper Players. It's a great sketch and after staring at my stamp sets for a bit I finally decided to use the set Aviary for this card. Since today is the first day of spring (yuck, I'm not happy...I'm a winter girl...Antarctica is really where I should live! We are supposed to get snow this weekend, so at least I have that) that means more birds will be heading up to Alaska over the coming months and I'll be busy with my camera, watching and enjoying them!

I seem to be gravitating towards Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry and Lucky Limeade. These colors have seen a lot of use from me lately. I think they are so pretty together! The squares were created by using the set Beyond Plaid and stamping the pattern in different colors, then using the 1 3/8" square punch to cut them out. The squares, bird cages and sentiment are all popped up with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that wherever you are, you're enjoying your first day of spring(or fall, depending on where you live!).

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Aviary, Itty Bitty Banners, Beyond Plaid
Paper: Island Indigo, Whisper White
Ink: Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: Cuttlebug, CB Argyle EF, Bitty Banner Framelits, Lucky Limeade Ribbon, dimensionals


  1. Too cute, Lisa! I love the argyle stamping combined with the argyle embossing! Very clever! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  2. Lisa this is darling! I love the pop of color from the argyle paper and the textured background is the perfect touch. Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)

  3. This is an adorable card Lisa! Love your use of colour and stamps - so happy and playful. Congrats on being a Cut Above at the Paper Players - well-deserved! :)

  4. I just found your blog through The Paper Players and I love this card you've created! Lovely!
    But even more than that you are a "breath of fresh air", a girl after my own heart --- it's not too often I find someone who also LOVES winter & snow like I do! :) It seems like most everybody everywhere has been complaining about the long dreary winter and can't wait til Spring. Not me! The more snow --- the happier I am! :) Problem is that where I live we have not had much at all the last at least two winters --- and is Spring again! (sigh) Ugh! I could live without summer altogether if not for the fresh garden veggies.
    So enjoy your snow that you are expecting now.:)
