The Write Stuff!

Hi everyone!! Happy Sunday!!

Here is my card for today's Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS, FS113, which honors the totally AWESOME Julie aka Just Write Designs!! I am such a fan of Julie's and it was SO much fun choosing a card of hers to case!!

I decided to case her TY For The Birds That Swing card!! Here is what I did!!

I LOVED the scene she created, so I used my Branching Out and Branching Out Coordinates sets from Taylored Expressions to create my branches and swinging bird!! Before I stamped my images, I created my cloud background with a cloud template from CC Designs. I used Soft Sky ink to create the clouds. I then stamped my branches, swing and bird in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Choice Bright White Cardstock. I stamped the bird twice, and he is cut up and popped up on dimensionals! I used Copic Markers to color all the images on my card!!

I kept Julie's layout with the one main focal panel, but I added some layers. I also added ribbon loops, paper piercing and used DSP (Rockabilly).

Thanks SO much for stopping by! Make sure to check back a little bit later for another Taylored Expressions card!!
