I’ve made the project above, and an extra one at the end of this post, so be sure to scroll to the bottom;)

For my first card, I used a pre colored digital image from Fred She Said called, Blue Jay & Raspberries Coloured SET.  The paper I used is also from the store, but not included in the set.  The paper pack is called, FSS-BMD Yummy Delights Digital Papers SET.  It has lots of yummy papers:)

I used my Spellbinders Scalloped Oval set behind the bird, in Stampin’ Up! Real Red,  and the Classic Oval set to cut out the main image.  The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up! set Swrils & Curls Verses, a retired Hostess set.

I popped up the bird with Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Dimensionals, as well as my sentiment.  The ribbon is Stampin’ Up! Pacific Point. I used S’U! Crystal Effects to highlight the berries on the main image, it makes them shiny and raised up a little bit.   Please scroll down after reading to see the next card:)

Your secret word on my blog is Surprise!

Here is my second card for you today:)
I did NOT color this image!  I love the pre colored images at Fred She Said!  This is one of the newer images called, Hibiscus.  It comes in 6 beautiful colors, or you can just get the digi and color it yourself:)  I paired it up with my Stampin’ Up! supplies and I’m pretty pleased with myself.  I hope you like it too:)
I used Stampin’ Up! Real Red as my background, white cardstock cut with S’U! Adorning Accents Edgelits, and on top of that I used Garden Green and a retired S’U! punch called Lace Ribbon Border.  The stamp is from Stampin’ Up! retired set Wonderful Words II. 
Thanks for coming by:)  Please visit often:)
