VSN Spring :)

"a little bird told me" ( inside is a pop up card) done for Linsey's challenge. I've never made one of these before after looking at the tutorial decided to go with the three folded scrap "hinge" style on the inside so this card started with the inside and just tossed this outside together to "go with" it. tfl, & thanks for this challenge Linsey! this is 5" square in real life.
This was done for Linsey's pop up card challenge. the card measures 5" square. had this previously diecut/ inked nested bird die and woodland branch diecut in my images to do something with tin. ( as was the cream frame die cut) and the oval kraft die cut. lol so this actually went together pretty quick on the inside. the pop up is a folded scrap hinge style piece. the birds eye is a chocolate pearl, the chocolate ribbon's from SU the threads may arts. tfl & thanks for this challenge. Depending on how you view this card the pop up fold is the same soft sky printed paper so it blends and its almost like the bird and branch are floating...
That metal jewel is vintage from an estate sale that they wanted a whole .05 cents for it, when I picked it up I had thought it was going to be a loose stray earring. I snipped the pointed part of it off the back with wire cutters a bit after I poked it through all the layers because the post was a bit too long. So, Ive had these Our Daily Bread snow stamps a long time and decided to get them inky for Lee's blizzard challenge. Its still snowing off and on here in Or also.
the snow background was heat embossed onto Gina K kraft and the snowflake was done on PTI cardstock vellum. The pink vintage pin was found at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago. this is 6" square in real life. tfl & Thanks for this challenge Lee!
This is my very first "steampunk" themed stamp, and she was colored a while back with copic markers. Die cut with an spellbinders die. the edges were inked with chalk ink. the ticket strip is printed paper. the tiny metal watch sprockets came in an viva las vegas grab bag. (they are on the round tag) this is 6" square in real life.

This one's A-6 in real life, thanks for this challenge! & tfl. These I suspect were done by hand with die cuts of felt, but they were given to me as a gift and I don't have any details about the blooms or leaves. ( I added the pearls to the centers)
When I seen that Michele had an rolled flower challenge I remembered I had these felt flowers and leaves that were gifted to me a very long time ago that I have been hoarding. I think they were made with a die of some kind but, not sure which one. I added the martha Stewart pearls to the centers. the base is an Sizzix die, the white is a Spellbinders die ( as is the tag) tfl & Thanks for this challenge Michele.

That is that skinny green sheer ribbon in the SU celebrations gift book at the moment, Leigh Anne sent this to me ( Thanks Chickie!) and I curled it around my closed pair of scissors the same way you'd do that paper curling ribbon... but, if you do it too many times it will shread and fall apart. {ask me how I know that eh?} ;)
