I'm back today with the second installment of the Bird cards for Operation Write Home. I finished up 6 more and have 6 more put together. Wee Memories is also having a challenge to make OWH cards. There are a few rules to follow when making OWH cards. Glitter is not allowed. Make A2 sized cards. Leave the inside blank (so that the card can be used to write a note home). I have made a few Mother's Day cards too as the deadline is coming up soon for those.
The Stars and Stamp Challenge blog (OWH's craft blog) is having a Mother's Day card challenge. Check it out.
Here is a picture of the cards I still have to put together and embellish. Keep the embellies to a minimum to make them easier to pack and mail. The cards have to travel a long way. I will work on this batch over the weekend.
I used the same stamps for each card. Small Swirl Background and Large Solid Bird both from Impression Obsession. I used a variety of sentiments and embellishments. Here is the finished batch.
Techniques I used: masking, stamp kissing, fussy cutting. I used lots of different colors of inks and mostly white CS. Here are photos of each card.
And, here a few other general occasion cards:
A few other challenges:
Stampin for the Weekend: Spring
Dutch Dare: Who's Who in the zoo
Hope you are having a great day. See you soon.
