Cottage Rumble #9..............Inside Out!!!!!!!!!

Smiley from

Are you ready to RUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMBLE???????????? Well, here's the next Clear Artistic Stamps Rumble Challenge!!!! Make a birthday card with some sort of stamping on the inside!!!

  • Stamps: Thoughts Of Joy
  • Paper: Linen, Chocolate Chip, Basic Grey dsp
  • Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Burgundy Copic
  • Accessories: Flower Soft, Ribbon, Chocolate Pearls

I used Belinda's brand net stamp set, Thoughts Of Joy. I LOVE the elegance of this set!!!! Belinda always amazes me with her beautiful artwork!!!! This beautiful bird was so perfect for this....and I added some Flower Soft to make a little more of a "feathery" look!! I didn't use a sentiment, so it could be a birthday card, but also could be for any occasion. I kept the layout and colors simple so the bird could really POP!!! I used Linen Cardstock which Belinda will be carrying soon!! I ADORE this Linen paper!!!!

I then just put a couple of simple layers inside and stamped the flowery branch from the set on the side. So there's still plenty of room to write your greeting.
