Playing with Serenade by Flowerdisco and Friends, Finale

Hello, my friends, and Welcome to our final week of Playing with Serenade by Flowerdisco and Friends! You know, I've really enjoyed working on this project, and especially enjoyed working with this fabulous group of ladies!

For the finale week, I was assigned with image 47, which is a bird perch? A bird cage stand? Okay, let's just say I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with this one! After quite a bit of brainstorming, this is what I came up with:

Patterned Paper: Echo Park
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink for pumpkin, Georgia Pacific and Waussau from 'Pumpkin Perch' lol.
Sentiment is stamped with Orange Zest ink from Papertrey ink, then heat embossed using clear embossing powder by Ranger.
The sticker boarder strip and stars are also from the Echo Park collection.

I think that covers it! It's a pretty simple card, I'm not totally in love with it, but I can live with it!

Now, let's see what the rest of the gals did!


If you haven't already, I hope you'll visit their blogs, and let everyone know how wonderful they did with this series! I also hope you enjoyed seeing all the cards we made using the Serenade cartridge!

I'll be back soon with some other cards I've been working on! Thanks for stopping by and for all your support and comments!

Playing with Serenade by Flowerdisco and Friends, Week 6

Hello and welcome to week 6 of our Serenade Series! I'm just going to just jump right in and show you the card I came up with using my assigned image 40, the bird. I knew before I started designing my card, I wanted to make it a Christmas card. I started with a completely different color combo and papers, and it just wasn't working for me. So, I  finally decided to just start from scratch and started looking through one of the Echo Park Christmas lines, and it all just fell into place from there! When I was finished I still felt the card needed something, my husband was actually who suggested the faux stitching! lol. Anyway, here's what I came up with:
The colors are not all traditional Christmas. I actually had to tell my husband and friend/ co-worker that it is a Christmas card, but I guess unless you know the papers and sentiment come from Christmas collections, it might be hard to know, since it is a bit subtle. hehehe.

Card Stock and Sentiment Stamp: Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper and border sticker: Echo Park
Also, Versamark Ink, Ranger Embossing Power in black, Distress Ink in Walnut Stain, and Uniball Signo white gel pen.

Now, on to the rest of the gals!


Beautiful right!? I couldn't love their cards more!
Well, that's all for today, but check back in with us next Wednesday for our final installment of the series!

Have a Great and Crafty Day!

This week I had Image 33, a tree. I immediately knew I wanted to make it a fall tree, and when I flipped through the Apple Cider paper pad by Imaginisce, well I really let the paper be my inspiration!
Card stock base~ 5 x 7 Papertry Ink, Terracotta Tile
Patterned Paper~ all from 6 x 6 Apple Cider pad by Imaginisce
Sentiment~ Rubon, Apple Cider collection by Imaginisce
Embellishments~ Medium brads made with Itop brad maker, and strip made with Martha Stewart punch.

Playing with Serenade by Flowerdisco and Friends, Week 4

Happy Hump Day, crafty people! I hope you had a nice weekend as well as a fun World Card Making Day! I spent a lot of time in my craft room, mostly working on cuts for a Cricut Cut Swap I'm in. Did you participate in any of the fun challenges or blog hops going on around the web? I could barely keep up with all the blogger posts! So fun! There should definitely be a World Card Making Day at least once a month! Anyhoo, let's get on with this weeks cards! I had image 26, which is a flower. A lot of images on this cart can be combined with each other, so the flower could go on the vase with a stem or one of the flower pots, but I wanted to show you an option to use the image alone, and made a shaped card with it. Pretty Simple, but cute I think.

Kraft cardstock for card base.
Layers are Recollections cardstock
White Uniball Signo gelpen for faux stitching.
Light Blue Stickles
Sentiment is PTI Mixed Messages
Ink is Walnut Distress and Embossed with Bridal Tinsel

Now on to the rest of the ladies! They really blew me away with their cards this week! Check them out:

Have a crafty day!
