Hello Bloggertons! Welcome! I am happy to share and urge you all to participate in the Trick or Treat Blog Hop using Simply Betty Stamps AND/OR Tiddly Ink's Images!!! Check out Simply Betty's Blog for more details of the blog hop and to see the list of the Design Team Members for inspiration!
Now, onto what I made!
I just LOVE Gigi. She's cute, flirty and definitely hiding something! This girl has secrets. Even so, she is a fun fit for this little birdhouse card! Her bat hotpants make the boys go batty!
Here's the TRICK I would love to share with you all:
Explore different shapes when making a card or project by downloading FREE TEMPLATES such as the birdhouse one I used from here. Once you print and cut out your template, use your favorite papers or even fabrics! Mix and match! Paint, cut, glue, distress ink! It's up to you! Also, don't be afraid to use black and white patterns, then use your makers/pencils/inks to add your own color choices (I used Worn Lipstick, Broken China and Walnut Stain Distress Inks).
There are many great free templates at Stampington's site! (Click on the "Tempting Templates" link on the left of their homepage) Explore and share as you wish! :)
Supplies: Gigi by Simply Betty Stamps, "Chills & Thrills" by Cosmo Cricket "Haunted" clear stamps/Black and White Paper by 7Gypsies & Pink paper by Basic Grey "basil/gah-2132"/Yellow hand stitches/Colored in Copics/Worn Lipstick, Broken China and Walnut Stain Distress Inks/Bat Charm/Diamond Stickles/Green Flower/Red Ribbon/Birdhouse Template from Stampington.
