Reverse Confetti Bird Cards

A quick post today, to share a couple of cards I made a while back with some products from Reverse Confetti - the Big Stripes Tags Confetti Cuts, and The Tweet Life stamp and die set.
The sentiment stamp is from Paper Smooches, and the flower punches are from Stampin' Up. I used Nuvo Crystal Drops for the flower centres, and black Enamel Accents for the bird eyes.

For the bird, I fussy cut the patterned paper.
I got the lovely woodgrain cardstock from Payperbox. I met the owner of the company earlier this year at the Stitches show at the NEC (in the UK), and he's the loveliest guy! His paper is really good value and really good quality.

I made a second card, with similar products, using the Brushstrokes Birthday Greetings Dienamics die for the 'happy', which I coated with Versamark ink and Melt Art Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel.
The 'birthday' was from Reverse Confetti's Whole Lotta Happy stamp set, and the stitched frame was cut with Marianne Design Craftable Passe Partouts, Square.

Flower Pot Pop Stand & My Favorite Things Fall Florals Card

I got Karen Burniston's Flower Pot Pop Stand die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs last week, and a few other new crafty bits, including a stamp and die set from My Favorite Things ('Fall Forals'), which I used to decorate the flower pot with. This was a fun card to make!

I used Karen's Video to help me construct the plant pot, then stuck on the flowers.
I used Happy Birthday die cuts, from Marianne Designs, and added some border strips.

I added a bow cut with a Stampin' Up paper punch.
I used ink colours from Stephanie Barnard's Color Box range, and added decorative  dots with white Enamel Accents.

The card still folds flat enough to post!
