Wooden It Be Nice and CASology


The Shopping our Stash challenge 67 is "Wooden it be nice" or in other words, to add some element of "wood" onto your card. There is a tree branch, a birdhouse, and some great painted wood dsp on my card for the challenge. I really shopped my stash for this one, using an extremely old SU! set called Definitely Decorative Branch for the tree and birdhouse. The sentiment is by Hero Arts, and the bird is from the SU! Live your Dream set, and it was the perfect size to perch on the birdhouse! The dsp is from the Bright Side Two by MME, and the border was done with a SU! scalloped border punch. Gems by Want2Scrap and sky sponging was done with some Ranger Tumbled Glass ink.

Here's my card for the CASology #9 and the cue card word is "family." I printed this adorable digi image designed by the fabulous artist Margaret Bucklew of DigiDitto. Hopefully if you click the photo you can see the detail of those ducklings a little better. I added a strip of Echo Park dsp, along with a sentiment from Melanie Muenchinger's Hip-Hop Accessories stamp set, adding some dots with a black marker. The final touch was some twine. I now have all my ducks in a row, and I'm calling them "family." :)


Thanks for stopping by today and I wish everyone a fabulous Thursday!

This first card is great. Love that branch and leaves and your wood is outstanding. Your image for you second card is just adorable. You can see the detail when enlarged. I love the twine with it. Gotta run and get back outside before it starts to rain. Just a bit more outdoor work today and than I can crash for the night.
