April 2012 Release Projects

Another countdown has come and gone. As always, quite the ride:). How about I wrap up my part of it by sharing the remainder of my projects?

Framed Out #3 and Think Big Favorites #15.  There were sentiments from both of these sets that worked well together, so I combined them. Getting a little help from last month's Back Pocket Basics.

Heart-2-Heart and BB: Postmarks. I felt the new Patchwork Patches die works well as a whimsical postage stamp. Worked well. Also enjoyed using my new Ocean Tides ink on this card.

Tagged Sentiments. Sort of hard to tell, but I embossed the numbers "1, 3,4" using the By the Numbers dies so that it all tied in with the "2" from Dawn's new stamp set. Color combo I found on Pinterest and loved--Orange Zest, Autumn Rose, Ocean Tides, Aqua Mist, and Vintage Cream.

Trendy Trees.  I stamped the tree trunk with one of the mats from Modern Wood Mats. Birdies are cut out of felt.

Tweet Talk. The Wine Bottle Tag got used to house my sentiment in a new way.  Birdie-wise,  this is a bit of a different spin on things. I was searching for inspiration and found this pillow:

I thought it was a dead end because the birds from Tweet Talk don't have the smooth bodies. But than I started experimenting and I realized I could totally pull it off. Here's how:

Hope you enjoyed the rest of my projects. See you around soon. Once you get the stampin mojo going, it's sort of hard to stop.

    thank you for your wonderful cards. I´ve a question to the card with the postmarks, what die did you use the "normal postage die",the single die?
