Clearly It's Time to Hop!

Join in on the terrific inspiration surrounding this amazing Blog hop.  So much talent all in one place.  Grab your coffee and get comfy!  Make sure and comment as you hop along for your chances to WIN WIN WIN!

The album I created using my ClearScraps 8x8 is with a bird theme.  I have put links for the different items along the way just incase you want to find them in the store at Stampendous.  These are some of my favorite images as I love birds and nature.  I hope you enjoy!

"Birds of a Feather"

I inked the edges of the acrylic front page with opaque StazOn ink pad baby blue, and decorated the front with flowers and bling.  I embossed using Bark embossing powder onto acetate Stampendous's  Nest Egg Perfectly Clear set and cut out the eggs.  I inked the reverse side of the eggs using the opaque baby blue stazon ink pad as well.  Of course adding ribbons flowers and pearls.  To top off the front cover I added Steel Blue Crushed Glass Glitter and Chiffon Color Fragments using liquid glue.



The next page has Stampendous Jumbo Cling Songbird embossed on acetate and colored on the reverse again with Stazon.

I embossed once again the Stampendous Bird Manor onto card stock and cut it out.  after popping it up I added the Steel Blue Crushed Glass Glitter and the Chiffon Color Fragments.  This was done on the second clear acrylic page with the edges inked with the Stazon.


I embossed Cling Vintage Birdcage and cut it out and underneath the flowers added the Steel Blue glass glitter and Chiffon fragments





(This little bird is made with the Cling Lone Bird stamp)

Here are all the list and links in one spot for easy access.
