Parakeet Hellos

Hello Crafty Friends -

Been a while but I’m back with a sweet and clean card featuring a few stamp sets from Lawn Fawn. I made a few other projects this weekend but some of them will have to wait until later to be shared. I’ve also been a busy bee going through my craft room and purging. I’ve accumulated a lot of stuff over the last 10 years including an amazing number of tins to alter. Yeah… I’ll be parting with all of those. Lol.

I did find a couple of items that I’d never used: Memory frames and memory capsules from Ranger. The Inspiration Emporium store doesn’t have the exact ones I used but there are some 2” and 1” ones that you can find HERE.

For my card I created a little 1 1/2” scene using the parakeet from Critters in the Jungle and some delightful designer paper from Taylored Expressions. I used the round memory capsule and chrome frame. For a little extra oomph I added some itty bitty iridescent sequins. I topped the frame with a bow made from orange polka dot ribbon (pretty sure this was from American Crafts).

To finish the scene I stamped the sun image from Hello Sunshine in Chrome Yellow Archival Ink. I spelled out “Hello” using the Violet’s ABCs stamp set and Leaf Green Archival Ink. Finished with a few glittery enamel dots from Doodlebug.

So what do you think? I’d be delighted to hear!
