Hi, There!

I ordered this stamp set from PowerPoppy called short stacks and it is on sale now. You can also order this one in digital form but I wanted the clear stamp set.  

I have so many digital stamps and in the beginning, I just thought I will save space and not buy any more stamps (that never happened) but, alas, my computer is packed and I never think to go thru what I have (as I believe I just forget what I have)!

Most times, I am in a hurry and just want to sit down and stamp and color - no computer browsing and going to my printer and printing.  If I had everything in one room, I believe I would be more productive! Maybe;)

Well, back to the card - I once had a parakeet called Peter and my sister and I adored him.  He had quite the personality too!!   Peter was green like the bird that I painted on the first card and yes, he would have sat on a teacup too!   As usual, I had to make one more card featuring this bird in blue.  

Fun image to color and design, something I needed right now.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek and if you leave a comment, thanks - I love to read them!  Hugs and blessings always ~ CaroleAnn

Card Recipe:  Colored with Copic Markers, this is a 5 x 7 size card.  BG paper is from stash, added an embossed heart paper, the image has been framed with a Memory Box/wrapped scalloped stitched rectangle, used distress ink for shading, and the black and white paper with buttons and threading all from my stash.

Card Recipe:  Colored image with Copic Markers and used the same die-cut for framing the image and distress inks for shading.  This is a 6 x 6 square card and the BG papers from my stash.  Seam binding ribbon dyed to match the card and enamel dots added.  Glitter to the cups on both cards.


  1. Both beautiful cards I love the stamp and both colourways -love the use of two coloure ribbons too.I agree about the digis last month I deleted over 300 that I will never use again and most never even been used at all!!!

  2. I love both cards. So beautiful. I had a parakeet once. He always bit me! I have this set in digital. I just recently went through my digital images to see what I had. They are all sorted by designer. There were seventeen thousand files. That included sentiments and all kinds of stuff. Crazy!!!

  3. I'm so happy to see your pretty cards today, CaroleAnn! This is such a darling set. I know how you feel about the digis and not wanting to go to the computer, which is why I keep a bunch printed up and ready to color. I keep all mine on a flash drive so the computer is not clogged up with files. They're organized by designer, etc. My room is not vast enough to hold all the things I want to play with! The digis make sure I still have room for all the regular stamps I love, too.


Thanks for visiting and taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading them! Have a wonderful creative Day!
