At the bottom of the garden Hummingbird card


We're baaa-ack!  The Bitten by the Bug 2 design team is back from our lengthy holiday break!  Our Design Team sister Karen selected the team's first cut for 2011 - the Hummingbird from the Lyrical Letters cartridge.  The hummingbird is a single layer cut.  I used two cartridges to create this card, Lyrical Letters and Lacey Labels.


I am almost embarrassed to tell you that my scraproom is such a horrid mess that I had to hunt for the unopened Lacey Labels cartridge so that I could cut this design.  I should insert a photo of the scraproom, but modesty prevents me from embarrassing myself further.


I cut the hummingbird twice and heat embossed both the parent and baby birds with holographic embossing powder.  Finished the card with a wide Stampin' Up ribbon and pixie stamps.  Please do go by and check out the BBTB2 DT designs - they are wonderful!!

I will be back tomorrow with another Spellbinders card.

  6. Beautiful,beautiful card. I love that Lacy Labels cut you used along with it. Thanks for making me laugh out loud when I read about your messy room. I might get more done if I wasn't so obsessively neat. I have to completely clean up from one project before I start on another. It's a stupid habit, especially when I'm doing a themed scrapbook where I'm using all the same papers. LOL

  8. Beautiful card, Susan! So glad that you're feeling better and back to crafting. Don't sweat the mess -- most of us are right there with you! I finally mucked out my craft room yesterday -- now I can't find anything!!

  10. Such a pretty card Susan, Hummingbirds are my all time favorite birds and I thought this would be an easy challenge and boy was I wrong, lol. And I totally understand about the messy room, I just got a space in my house and try so hard to clean up after each project but then I can't remember where I put things, lol, and because it's still a pretty new space I can't remember where I put it in the first place, lol! Good luck on the spellbinders contest by they way, I love their stuff, I'm sure you'll do great!
