Scrapy Land Blog Challenge #21 - Anything Goes

Happy Wednesday and happy first day of July!! Wow, this year is speeding by...Christmas will be here before we know it!! It's time for another fun challenge at Scrapy Land and it's everyone's favorite - Anything Goes using a brand of die that Scrapy Land carries (there are over 40 to choose from!!)


I created two summer-inspired cards using papers from Prima's Bella Rouge stack, the edges distressed with a Zutter DIA. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.


The design is the same for both cards. I used a stitched scalloped border die from the Spellbinders Curved Border die set to divide the paper. The birdhouse and vine are from Frantic Stamper's Garden Birdhouse set. The fence, which I curved around the post, is a Memory Box Rounded Fence die. The birds are Memory Box Resting Birds dies, and they were covered in sugar coating.


Beneath the flowers are Memory Box Botanical Stems and Memory Box Chloe Stems. The sentiment banner is a Taylored Expressions Stacked Banner Stacklets 1 die. And on the inside, I used a Memory Box Stitched Square die.


I am entering these in the following challenges:

1. DL.Art - July Linky
2. Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Summer
3. Little Scrap Pieces Show It Off Saturday - Anything Goes
4. Pause Dream Enjoy Linky Party - Anything Goes


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Scrapy Land to see the amazing projects my design team sisters and our guest designers have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your project using a brand of die that Scrapy Land carries!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

Karen said...

My sweetest friend, these are gorgeous! I have often said you use Prima papers like no other and that remains true... you always make the loveliest designs with their patterns. The flower clusters are perfection and I adore the birdhouse! I need a standing one like that. :o) The vine is fabulous and the resting birds are gorgeous, especially atop the rounded fence. Both color palettes bring joy to my heart. Stunning work as always, my dearest and talented friend! Have a twinkly night. :o)

Hugs and blessings,
Karen

Oh my these birdhouse cards are amazing!! I can't remember if I told you about the time I showed your blog to my daughter. She's 15 and really loves the vintage and shabby chic look. Her jaw dropped open as I scrolled through your projects and I of course I had to brag that you were my friend and even visited my blog. She was immediately impressed, LOL! I can't say enough how gorgeous these cards are and the texture and dimension is beautiful! I must admit that my jaw drops regularly as I come to visit you and see your stunning creations! Have a wonderful holiday weekend!! Hugs!

Love, love this birdhouse. Looks so designer detailed with the pretty paper piecing you've done. Any bird would be proud to call either of these 2 houses home. Love all the details with the scalloped border tucked under the luscious flowers too. All the stitching, distressing, twining vines around the pole and that wonderful gauzy fabric...As always, just a fabulous design, pretty elements and so much attention to finite details. TFS & happy 4th of July. Hope the itching is all better now. Hugs

Becca Cruger said...
